Flowers, S’mores, Brunch, Oh My!

One of the many reason why I love Curt is because he always surprises me. Whether, it’s with my favorite flower, a nice note, treats or flowers AND a fun filled weekend I know he will always keep me on my toes.

Well, this surprise included: flowers, chocolate, shopping, movies, and brunch! Read below to see what Curt planned for us this past weekend.










Gerber Daisy’s and a note title “Aucutt Spectacular Weekend!”  He had planned this entire weekend out. Friday was a special dessert (he refused to tell me what it was), he actually brought the dessert home on Thursday because he couldn’t wait. The special dessert was….










Gourmet S’mores! For those of you who don’t know me, I LOVE s’mores! And these aren’t just any s’more….this came with flavored, homemade marshmallows! Curt picked out chocolate and raspberry, they also come with these little fire stations, waffle cookie type things, and Belgian chocolate (fantastic!) I had to use my Gluten Free graham crackers and they were AMAZING! We had s’mores in March! If you live in the Des Moines area you have to check out Beaverdale Confections!

Enjoying my s'mores!










So Friday, was our special dessert. On the agenda for Saturday was workout (he put that on just for me, he is the best), IMax movie, shopping (the entire afternoon!), lunch, and grilling! Then on Sunday we had reservations at Americana for brunch.  Americana may be our new favorite restaurant.  Curt had the entire weekend planned out, and planning is my favorite!

So Saturday morning I got up and ran outside and then we got ready to go to my first EVER IMax movie. I was VERY excited.

Waiting for the movie to begin!

We went and saw this:

Born To Be Wild was great and I really enjoyed the IMax, it is a very cool experience. I’m going to have do a little research on the two women and their organizations in this movie because they are truly amazing and inspiring. I would love to learn more and find out how we can help.

After the movie we went and had a quick lunch and Noodles & Co, and then we spent the rest of the afternoon doing my favorite hobby….SHOPPING! Curt was great the entire time and didn’t complain once!

Today we had reservations at Americana for brunch at 10am. We have eaten at Americana for dinner before and LOVE it, great food, great atmosphere and a great experience.  We kept hearing all about their Brunch and so we decided to check it out, and of course American did not disappoint. Brunch was oh so filling and oh so good! Again, if you are local or traveling through please hit up Americana! I promise you will not be disappointed!

Here are a few pictures of our morning.

Concentrate on that coffee!

Enjoying my gluten-free friendly brunch.


VERY FULL after a great brunch!























I really am blessed. Thank you babe for a great weekend!
