Weekend Shananigans

I have a feeling that today might be a three cup of coffee kind of day. I am not even sure why? I went to bed at a decent hour last night?! This was the last weekend before football takes over our Saturdays. Kind of crazy the season is here already! I am just hoping that this week goes by quickly, so we can get to that three day weekend!

Saturday morning, we met Laura and her crew over at Nordstrom Rack. Her and I took the kids shopping there while the boys looked around Best Buy. The plan was to eat at Shake Shack right at 11:00am. Well, there was a huge ass line waiting outside to get in, and no food is worth a wait for us. We ended up going to Tavern instead. I ordered the Baconjam Burger and it was seriously amazing!!! We all ordered mimosas and shared some crab dip too. Yum yum yum.

Zoe got the cutest pair of sparkly gold Puma’s at rack, some new hair bows and two pairs of leggings for the fall. She made out! I found nothing. Well, nothing that I needed. There was plenty I talked myself out of. And of course, we had to get a picture of Z & S while we were out!

After lunch, we headed back home. Zoe didn’t want to take a nap, so we watched Secret Life of Pets a million times and played with some bubbles outside. She also helped me do several loads of laundry, it’s not child labor when they want to help. And she spotted my old Care Bear chair in our guest room and asked if she could have it. And by asked, she pointed to it and said “mine.” But same thing in toddler language. It was pretty cool seeing her sit in it. That chair sat in our garage for years, and I always looked at it and wondered if we would have a kiddo of our own sitting in it some day. Pretty cool to see it happen!

It was an early-ish bedtime for her, since she didn’t have a nap and was starting to get cranky. Once she was down, I poured myself a glass of wine and watched To All the Boys I Loved Before. It was such a cute movie, very well done! I loved the book so much, so I knew I had to watch the movie.

Sunday morning, I tried out a WW recipe for Strawberry Lemon baked donuts with my new donut pan. While they looked so pretty, they weren’t all that great. Let’s just say you could certainly tell it was a WW recipe, and not in a good way. Maybe next time I will tweak it some how to make it better. After breakfast, Zoe and I headed to Target to knock out our grocery shopping for the week.

When we got home, she ate lunch and had some quiet time in her crib while Chris and I made a homemade pizza and watched an episode of Blue Bloods. She was supposed to go down for a nap, but it totally didn’t happen. Again. Don’t these kids realize that they are going to wish they had all these naps one day???

The rest of the day was spent watching more Secret Life of Pets…please send help!!!!…and taking walks and blowing bubbles outside.

Chris and I watched a few episodes of Blue Bloods after Zoe went to bed and called it a night. Just like that, the weekend was over and the Sunday Blues were strong! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Let’s do this, Monday! Linking up with Biana.

    I really want to see that movie! So sorry about Shake Shack. LOVE that last outfit of Zoe’s. Sweet girl is so stylish! I can’t believe it’s college football next weekend but bring it…and the food that goes with it, lol. Happy Monday babe!

    That super sucks about the doughnuts, because they do look so pretty. We had so much fun hanging out with y’all – shopping and getting lunch. Hopefully the hullabaloo over Shake Shack will die down soon so we can go. I have zero advice for the Pets thing – hopefully soon she will find a new obsession? For your sanity’s sake anyway. 🙂

    Your Monday food always looks so good. Zoe looks so cute sitting in the chair; good call, girlfriend! When she gets done helping you, please send her to my house! 🙂

    Oh my goodness, I love Zoe’s dresses! I’m with you on not wanting to wait for food. Plus, Tavern sounds good!

    I want to read and see To All the Boys I Loved Before. I LOVED Zoe’s shoes. My girls would have went crazy for those. I need to make those donuts. I saw them on your IG and wanted them!

    Man… yesterday was definitely a three cups of coffee kind of day. I have no idea why but that Monday kicked my rear. A fun weekend for you guys!! It’s super cute that Zoe has such a strong personality, even if it IS a no-nap, chair-stealing, Pets movie-obsessed personality 😉 She will definitely regret skipping those naps when she’s in her late 20s, though 😉

  • Reply ShootingStarsMag August 28, 2018 at 9:38 am

    I will happily take all the naps toddlers are wasting. LOL That’s so cute she’s using your chair – but hilarious she just said “mine.” Yep, sounds like a toddler for sure! 😉 I’m glad you had a good weekend. Sorry your WW recipe didn’t turn out. They LOOK good, but some healthy recipes really do taste gross. haha I’m really hoping this week goes by quick too. I’m ready for a longer weekend. 🙂

    I know I already told you all about Caleb’s love of laundry too. Hope they keep the habit when they’re older. Ha!! Too bad about those donuts. They look delicious.

  • Reply kristen August 28, 2018 at 12:56 pm

    i’ve only eaten at Shake Shack once – there isn’t one here – and i don’t think it’s worth any line. i haven’t read To All the Boys I Loved Before yet but i’ve got it on hold from the library so hopefully soon. i really didn’t like her other series, so i didn’t think i’d ever read this one but now the movie is out, i *have* to lol

  • Reply Sierra August 28, 2018 at 1:14 pm

    Yup, I agree, a crazy line like that…ain’t no body got time for that. How funny she likes to help with laundry. Does she want to come and do mine lol. That is so sweet with your Care Bear chair. I was a big Care Bear fan when I was little and to this day some of my aunts still call me bear. Those donuts look so good! Ha, isn’t it such a blessing and curse when your kid gets fixed on a movie?! The good thing is you know they’ll watch it, the bad thing, well Lord help us. Sierra Beautifully Candid

    I can’t believe that it’s already time for football season! The girls will definitely have to start appreciating watching all of the Aggie games, especially since they already wear maroon every Friday!

  • Reply Missy @MySh!ttyKitchen August 28, 2018 at 2:16 pm

    I had about 6 cups yesterday, it was one of those weekends. So ready for football! Sorry the donuts didn’t work out. I find that depriving myself of those types of things are better to healthify them. I’ll never give up bacon (not turkey bacon here) though!

    Just wanted to say I loved your Whiskey in a Teacup feature. ♥

  • Reply Heather August 30, 2018 at 9:52 am

    LOL, take the naps while you can Zoe! OMG a Care Bear chair?! Yesss! Where did you get your donut pan? My mom has been wanting one and I didn’t see it at Target.

  • Reply Alexandra Consolver August 30, 2018 at 2:44 pm

    Ah so glad you liked To All The Boys… 🙂 🙂 It’s so good!! Bummer the donuts weren’t good!! Sometimes that happens. Usually when there are a TON leftover. Whomp whomp. Gosh that food at the top looks soooo good!! 🙂 XO – Alexandra
