Weekend Update| September 19, 2011

Well, this past week two of my very best friends got engaged. Love is in the air and it isn't even springtime! I'm so excited for both of them and can't wait to see how their beautiful wedding plans unravel. I know that both of them have many many happy years ahead of them with the good men they've snagged.

Becky and her rocks. :)

Kayla and her rocks (and her fiance Sheriffe).

Saturday morning I had breakfast with Becky. She asked me to be her matron of honor and I, of course, said yes. Only, it took me a second to realize what she was asking. Why the heck am I a matron? OH YEAH, I'm married now which apparently makes me matronly. #Ifeelold

We had a great time talking wedding stuff and eating bagels and cream cheese at our traditional breakfast date spot- Panera.

John was helping some of our friends moved to I went ahead and tackled all the grocery shopping. Check out all the produce I got at our local produce market...

Only $31!!!

Saturday night we had our friends Caitlin and Ben over for dinner. They are also vegan and we had a great time talking about our experience going vegan last week. A lot of the conversation centered around poop. But trust me, if you try veganism that's a great topic of conversation. I know you're thinking, "Hannah, it may be a good conversation to have with other vegans, but not with your blog friends..." Ok, I get it.

Vegan Diet Update: We have been meat and dairy free for a week now. Last week John had ZERO heartburn, except for one day when we went out with friends and got a beef schwarma. So far the diet seems to be helping and meat seems to be the heartburn culprit.

Sunday we went to Beachside church (a.k.a. we skipped out on church and went to the beach instead.) It was so much fun, we went with some friends and I enjoyed talking with my friend Laura while all the guys tried their hand at surfing.

The rest of the day was spent napping, doing homework, and packing. Yup, we found a new place to live and will be moving on October 8th. More on that (with pics!) later on this week!

Question of the Day:
What did YOU do this weekend?
Do you buy your produce at a chain store or a produce stand or farmer's market?


  1. Love those two photos, esp the second one. Too cute, they look really happy :) Sounds like a great weekend. We didn't do too much. Went out on Saturday and nursed myself on Sunday. Other than that, no healthy eating, so this week is on!

  2. Sounds like a fun weekend with friends and family. Congrats to your friend, and enjoy the wedding planning! I mostly had the same kind of weekend, but I also went to a writing conference and had my book club, both of which were fun too.

  3. That is such a cute photo of your engaged friends! We are lucky b.c we live in cow land our local grocery store promotes and sells local produce :)

  4. All the veggies looks amazing! I try to shop at both. I can't always go to the farmer's market.

  5. What a fun weekend, congrats to them!!

  6. Aww! Congrats to your friends! And kudos to you for going vegan! I love chicken and cheese too much to give them up.... As for what I did this weekend, I went out to a night club for the first time in Guatemala... :-)

  7. wow!! congratulations I wish I could be engaged too!!


  8. I try to get produce from a local farm-place when I remember. Or buy local at the grocery store (but it can be SO pricey!). Congrats to all your friends!!

  9. I love all that produce! I spent the weekend at the coast (I've put the pictures up) So exciting about your friends getting engaged! And you being matron of honor. How very exciting!

  10. Congratulation to them :)
    Fun weekend you have!

  11. Wow, that's a whole lot of veggies. I don't think I consume that much in a month. Terrible, I know.

    Congrats on the newly engaged!

  12. Wow, lots of love over the weekend!! Congrats to the newly engaged!

  13. Congratulations to both your friends! How exciting they got engaged around the same time! I'm ashamed to say we just buy our groceries online from a chain store. Lazy, that's me.
    Also, wanted to say thank you so much for your beautiful comment on my blog about Cameron recently. I was very touched.

  14. So great news for your friends! Love to hear about these beautiful life changes - How fantastic it is!
    Grocery are coming from the Pakistani shop at the corner. I used to go to the market but here nothing has taste really. So Organic shop from time to time and the Pakistani seller, where you can still find nice products at a reasonable price.
    Cause as soon as you want something a bit difference you have to be ready to pay 7 euros for a small box of strawberry.........
    Take care
