who wants cookies?

I hope everyone had a great Father's Day weekend!  Mr. H and I had a wonderful weekend spending time together.

Friday night are usually always the same: pizza (out or in) and TV or a movie.  This Friday Mr. H rented This Means War with Reese Witherspoon.  I'd give this movie a two thumbs up.  We enjoyed the comedy and action.  My favorite scene was Reece dancing and signing in the kitchen.  She's just the cutest thing!

Saturday was a fun day.  Mr. H and I spend the entire day together.  I love days like that.  Mr. H ALWAYS wakes up before me and usually on the weekends he'll make me breakfast (if we don't go get brunch).  I woke up to Mr. H in the kitchen making me breakfast.  He's just the best!

I talked Mr. H into going to the mall!  He hates the mall so he went out of love.  It was a successful trip for us both.  Mr. H found a few things at J. Crew and I picked up a pair of white linen pants at Gap and a cute tunic from Forever 21.  I've always wanted a pair of white linen pants so when I saw them for only $16.99 I knew I had to have them!  What a steal, right!

Mr. H wanted to make us and my dad sugar cookies for Father's Day.  He's a great baker and has made these before.  I wanted him to make chocolate chip cookies, but he was determined to make what HE wanted.  Ha.  Whatever, there're clearly I'll eat them!!!  This recipe is from William Sonoma and they are outstanding!  They are soft sugar cookies-nothing better...well except chocolate chip.  

Sunday we celebrated Father's Day be going to church with my dad, sister and brother-in-law and then we had my dad over for lunch and cookies.  We played a few games of Mexican train and I totally dominated!

(I was soooooo bummed I forgot to get a picture with my dad on Father's Day!!!  Uggggg.)

I'm excited for this week.  My cousin and her daughter are coming to Dallas for a modeling expo and we'll get to see them once or twice.  Then it's my sister's birthday on Thursday.  Then we have a wedding to go to on Friday.  It's going to be a busy, fun week!

Guess what?  The wonderful Sheila over at The Failte House asked me to guest post about Love Languages.  Check it out.  Thanks Sheila for having me I'm so thrilled you asked me to be a guest blogger!

Happy Monday FRIENDS!!
