Weekend Shenanigans

So my weekend can mostly be summed up with this picture…

It was very chill, and full of Zoe cuddles! I was pretty busy finishing up a job on Friday morning for work. Having been my first week back, I was pretty exhausted! We stayed in Friday evening and I enjoyed a glass of wine. Have you tried the Barefoot Sweet Red? The label is shiny, the wine is delicious and Target had in on sale for $6.49. Win. Win. Win.

We made a little money Saturday morning with a side gig we have going. My sister, her husband and their boys stopped by after their basketball games to spend some time with Zoe. My sister was having serious baby cuddle withdrawals. The rest of the day was spent lounging, watching movies and eating BBQ. Not a picture was taken, other than my usual twenty a day of Zoe. On Saturday she turned two months old. What???

Yesterday morning I meal planned and Zoe and I headed out to do our grocery shopping. When we got back, I prepped some queso and cocktail wieners and waited patiently for the Super Bowl to start. I was flying high on happiness by halftime, the Falcons were kicking ass and Lady Gaga had one of the coolest freaking halftime shows ever. The rest of the game was spent shaking my head and holding in all my screams as I watched the Falcons lose everything they worked so hard for. Ugh! And to Tom Brady and the damn Patriots. Woof. Chris declared this house a Kraft free house from here on out. He said to go ahead and throw out any of their products and never buy anymore again. And basically this…

Well, that was a bit dramatic. But seriously, after watching Alabama lose the National Championship and now this? Normally I don’t care about who is playing in the Super Bowl and just watch it for the commercials and halftime show. Chris was like, everyone hates the Patriots, they are like the Alabama of the NFL. I was all ohhhhh this must be what it is like to not be an Alabama fan? The rage is real.

What did you guys think of Lady Gaga? She is such an artist with an incredible voice and I thought the drones were pretty darn cool! I am glad she kept it classy. Were any of you as disappointed in the commercials as I was? Not a single one stood out to me or made me laugh out loud.

Linking up with Biana. Cheers to a quick Monday!

    I was so happy with Lady Gaga’s performance! I have always adored her music and her originality and I was very glad that she just entertained and didn’t cause any controversy with the political rant. I wish more of Hollywood would take it from her. I was just disappointed by the commercials and I wanted to cry as the Falcons watched it go down the drain. I think the best part of the weekend for you my dear was all those ZOE snuggles!

    Loved Gaga’s performance! I think she is such a talented woman – and yes, she kept it classy! I think it’s awesome that you guys have a side gig! I hate the Patriots. I was so happy when I thought they were going to lose! Way to go, guys. Happy Monday!

    Aww I can’t believe Zoe is already 2 months old! It was such a crazy game, I didn’t have a preference who won this year, but we were watching with lifelong Falcons fans who definitely felt the same way as you guys! I was underwhelemed by the commercials, it seemed like a lot of ads for shows/movies.

    Wow… 2 months!
    I thought Lady Gaga was fantastic. Her voice is incredible. I wasn’t rooting for anyone (although I’m not a big Patriots fan). That said, I just started getting angry in the second half when the tides changed. UGH. What the heck. I was really pulling for the Falcons. Sigh.

    I didnt even know those were drones. I thought it was like a laser light show. Impressive.
    Lady Gaga is the only thing I watched the whole time… & so loved it all. She is just a great entertainer.

    Good to know about that wine – I need to jot that down so I can remember to pick up a bottle.

    I cannot believe she is 2 months old already! WHAT?!
    I’m not a football fan at all. I watched Lady Gaga and was impressed! Didn’t see many good commercials though. I read or did other things during most of the playing though – haha.

    I thought Lady Gaga did a great job! I was definitely impressed!

    And how is Zoe two months old already?! This time is flying by!

    I can imagine after your first week back at work you just wanted all the Zoe time possible and getting some rest in there. I haven’t tried Barefoot’s Sweet Red but their Pinot Grigio is the best I’ve tried and usually my go-to “grocery store” wine.

    You asked my thoughts on Lady Gaga…I thought she was fantastic. I’m not even a huge Gaga fan, but I thought her whole production and performance was AWESOME. And, I got INFURIATED when I read that people were trolling her for her costume at the end that showed her stomach. These types of negative comments about a woman’s body is exactly why people have body issues and eating disorders.

    There was only one commercial we LOLed to, but most of them were all feelz-y or just confusing. Sadly, I can’t even remember which one was the funny one.

    THAT HALFTIME SHOW THOUGH! Daaayyyyuuummm.. I seriously loved it. I loved that she used her music to speak her politics without having to even say anything else.. and with Mike Pence sitting there? Yes please k thank you.

  • Reply Laura February 7, 2017 at 10:24 am

    I looooooved the half time show — Gaga is so talented!! Those drones were seriously awesome, and how bad ass are you that you can get the stadium to open it’s top JUST FOR YOU. Was a good game, and pissed about how it ended.

    I wish everyone would follow that don’t talk to me for 7-10 days always. 🙂
