The weekend sure did fly right on by, didn’t it?? The weather here was absolutely beautiful all weekend, even though we didn’t spend a ton of time outside. It looks like it is supposed to be nice most of this week so we can make up for that.
Friday night after work, we met up with Chris’s family to celebrate my SIL’s birthday at Konomi. It was so good to get out on a Friday night!! We had a great time and amazing food. We even hung out in the parking lot for a bit after dinner chatting, reminded me of high school…hanging out in parking lots.
Saturday morning, Zoe and I started to clean out her playroom. Again. I think I am going to start keeping a chore chart for her. She used to be so good at cleaning up and having a place for everything. The playroom becomes out of control so fast now!! I think it will be good for her to have the responsibility. She helps me unload the dishwasher (obviously not the heavy glass stuff) and helps with the laundry now too, so it will be a great way to track all that.
After all the cleaning, we got ready to head out for lunch. Chris was wanting a really good burger, so we went to The Ridge. Everything was soooooooo amazing.
Our waitress got a kick out of how excited Zoe was about her fries and chicken fingers. We shared pretzel bites with jalapeno queso and sweet potato chips with blue cheese dip. I ordered the bacon jam gouda burger and OMGGGGG. It was so amazing. I cant wait to go back again soon. They have fried pimento cheese balls that need to happen.
We headed back home after lunch, Chris had some stuff to work on. Zoe and I decided to go walk around At Home. They didn’t have what I went there for, but I did find some super fun stuff for the kitchen! I am obsessed with the print on these wooden spoons! I got the rug for the hallway where our pantry is leading to the laundry room, I love the look of it.
After, we went to Home Depot to get some flowers for the bed around our mailbox, but I got overwhelmed and had no clue what we needed. No one that worked there was knowledgeable to help me….so I gave up and just got a house plant and a lantern for our front porch…and decided that I would go to a small nursery sometime this week and see if I can get better service. I am terrible with plants and I don’t even know what kind of soil I need, what can grow and thrive in total sun exposure, how to plant it, etc.
Chris and I hung out in the basement after Zoe went to bed, chilling out to music with some adult bevis as we usually do. We found a Steven Tyler/Slash performance that was pretty awesome.
Sunday morning, Zoe was up way too early. We cleaned and rearranged her bedroom, and when Chris woke up, we decided to order Cracker Barrel to go for breakfast. We hadn’t done that in a long time, and it was so nice not having to cook and do dishes! Why does breakfast make such a mess??
Last week, a PS5 bundle came back in stock. We have been trying to get one for months!!! I was lucky and got the new xbox from Target the first time you could preorder…but we have tried for the PS5 so many times I lost count. Chris group texted me, my SIL and BIL that it was going live and we all got on…and my BIL was able to score it! So we went over their house to pick it yesterday and hung out for a little bit.
The rest of the day was spent getting a few things done around the house. We decided to have a movie night and watched Alice in Wonderland and Tangled. I may or may not have napped nearly all of Alice in Wonderland. I cant tell you the last time I had a nap, it was fabulous. Just like that, the weekend was over.
I need to meal plan for the week and feeling very uninspired. Anyone make anything incredible lately that I need to try? I am so over picking out stuff for every meal all the time.
Speaking of over things, has anyone bought any good clothing lately??? I see all these sales and I actually need some stuff…but I can’t find a single thing I like right now!! I am not into these prairie dresses, see through clothing and crop tops. I am not cool enough to pull off majorly distressed jeans. I don’t wear shorts outside of athletic shorts around the house. I am at a complete loss. I couldn’t even pick out a dress at Loft, which is my usual go to. Anyone else not into the “fashion trends” right now? It is hard to find some basic, good staple pieces! Why is that??
Linking up with Tanya.
