Weekend Recap

Hope you had a great weekend.

Mine did not consist of watching the Superbowl this year, since it started at about midnight. (But I was able to catch a recap of the commercials.) To be honest, football is so not my sport. Talk to me again when it's baseball season. #gogiants

Instead we spent our weekend watching two fantastic movies... my husband has officially turned me into a movie person!

Both of these movies were amazing! Tom Hanks can do no wrong. He was fantastic in this movie. And 12 Years a Slave... so hard to watch, but one of the best movies I have seen in awhile. No wonder it won Best Picture this year at the Golden Globes. And watching these makes me even more excited for the Oscars this year.

I also made these delicious brownies:
Healthified Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

Their website is filled with deliciously easy recipes and much better pictures!

I would love to say we have some leftover... but they were too good. Make these immediately!

Sounds like a great weekend!! I make it a goal to see every Oscar Best Picture Nominee each year. I am SO behind this year, but I'm definitely going to be sure and watch 12 Years a Slave before the big night. I've heard that it's completely amazing. I'll need to see Captain Phillips too -- if Tom Hanks is in it, it's going to be good! :)

Happy Monday!

Captail Phillipps was SO amazing. We need to see 12 Years a Slave next for sure. You didn't miss much Super Bowl-wise as I'm sure you know ha. The brownies trump football any day in my book!

I wanted to see Capitan Phillips - I just love Tom Hanks, he is fantastic in everything he does. Those brownies look delicious! I'm not even going to go look at the recipe, because then I'll want to make them ;)

Captain Phillips was SO GOOD! I cried so hard in the scene when he is talking about his family! Really want to see 12 years a slave. It's next on my radar!
