Scenes From The Weekend (Instagram Edition)

The weekend according to my second pair of eyes, Monsieur iphone:

Post-work pit stop at my favorite bakery for a mocha latte and a bag of sweets; Saturday afternoon indulgence at (where else?) Ikea. So greasy, so good.

The scarf I'll live in for the next several months; and surprise!--requisite stripes. I'm so predictable.

Giant pumpkin macaron (from the aforementioned bakery); late night snuggling & movie-watching.

Plate of leftover macarons at midnight (now we've officially pegged me as a cliché); newly purchased bathroom rug. It was a $20 impulse buy at Ikea, but we're both in awe of how it completely upgrades the space. Wish it came in giant size for the living room.

Famer's market carrots are better than all supermarket carrots; And obviously, so is farmer's market artisan bread. Note my "hell yes" face as I haul the loot home.

Clown pumpkin in pink plastic cheetah print; A lesson in observance (more on that soon).

Sunday funday means leisurely snacking by utilizing the oft-neglected teapot and china. Because, when else do I bust it out?

Not pictured: amazing animal puppets nabbed for $3.99 at Ikea; foliage walks around the neighborhood; a particularly chilly Saturday night outing for hot cider; home-cooked candlelit dinner for two; skype date with in-laws; blog browsing; slow-roasted brussels sprouts* and ginormous pasta bowls.

A good one indeed. Now, bring it, Monday! How are all of you fine human beings feeling today?

*I googled the proper spelling of "brussels sprouts," because spell check kept saying that "brussel sprouts" was wrong. Turns out, you need that extra "s" on "brussel." Hello random?
