Weekend Recap

Happy Monday friends!  We had a wonderful weekend that I am ready to recap for I will just dive right in.

I discovered the photo stitch app on my phone.  I am late to the party, I know.

Apparently I downloaded it a while back, but never used it.  Good times.  Odd that my first collage is of my dog, don't you think?  Speaking of which I had too much fun cracking myself up at this silliness while playing with said dog and my phone over the weekend.

Upside Down Moose

Good times.

This weekend was a weekend of discovery in the Houston Heights.  I love that area of our with a huge heart.

Saturday we went and sat outside in the beautiful spring like winter weather at Crisp.  They have a beautiful outdoor area.

Crisp has a nice craft beer list and an extensive wine list and their food....delicious.  We shared tastes of the Baked Texas Goat Cheese and Marinara, the Saffron Arancini, and one of their delicious pizzas.  All were worth the splurge of weight watchers points I used.

The moon was full that night and I love the twinkle lights that Crisp has outside.

Look at all those people that photo bombed my picture of the moon and twinkle lights. Crazy.

On Sunday we headed over to Style Cycle, a super cute vintage store in the Heights.  I am not just saying it is super cute because I know the owners, it is actually super cute.

Sunday was their first monthly auction and the husband and I were helping out.  I got to practice my Vanna White moves showing off awesome vintage housewares.

The auction had a neat layout where you got to bid on a set of items and then come up and choose what you wanted each for the price you had bid.  I liked the set up and I am not ashamed to say that I went home with a super cool art glass bowl.  It will be on the blog tomorrow.  :)

Go visit Style Cycle, they have a great selection of housewares, furniture and clothing that is all vintage or vintage inspired.  They also have a large selection of things that have been restyled and re-purposed.  Check their website for auction events as well!

Style Cycle teamed up with Speers Rolling Bistro to provide food for their event.  Talk about food truck love.

I had the best grilled cheese of my life last night.  It had two kinds of cheese, garlic aioli, carmelized onions and arugula on it.  Grilled cheese love at first sight bite...also completely worth the WW points I saved up for it.

The husband got the Cuban sandwich and the garlic fries.  I stole tastes and they were also phenomenal.  You can check their website to see where to find the truck each day to track down these delicious eats.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I am linking up for Yolo Mondays.

Visit me tomorrow for weekend finds...little things I found for the house over the weekend.

Have a great day!!
