Weekend Shenanigans

Hello there, middle of August!!! Say what??? This month is just flying by. Though, the work day can be a little shorter…am I right?? I am not really sure where all of my weekend went but it sure did go.

Friday for lunch I ran over to Brookwood Mall because I had a hankering for some cheese fries only the food court would fix.


The house was cleaned Saturday morning then we headed out for lunch at Hickory Tavern with some friends. I must be on a cheese steak thing this weekend because I had another one!


We hit up Babies R Us afterwards to look at cribs and dressers and picked up a sparkly laundry basket and some Christmas pajamas! How cute are these??? Why is baby furniture so expensive? Yikes!



One of Chris’s friends came over Saturday night, so I read and binged on One Tree Hill.

Sunday was a day for grocery shopping, meal prepping and TV binging of course! I had to stop at Dunkin Donuts on my way to the store because I was dragging bad. A little caffeine and sugar wont hurt anything every now and then 🙂 I hit up TJ Maxx while I was out that way too to scope out what they had. I have a few ideas for a side table for the nursery and they always have the best furniture for stuff like that!


I also attempted to clean my white purse with the Simple wipes. Everyone says its a miracle wipe for denim stains. Hmmm miracle? Not so much. But it does look better.





Whatever, right? Of course, there was lots of this too…

In the bottom left picture, Mac had his head resting on the baby!! So sweet. I hope that those two become best friends!

And I suppose this post was where my weekend went. Shopping, eating, TV binging and Mac snuggles. I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!!! This week is my birthday week, so I am going to try to make it a good one even though I have to work. The free Starbucks and sandwich from Which Which will help. Have a great week!

Linking up with Biana.

    I’ve been looking for a new show (or rather old show) to start watching again and after finishing GG I think One Tree Hill would be good to start for the beginning! Yay for birthday week – hope it’s off to a fabulous start! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    Good lord those cheese fries. That’s one thing I can never turn down! That is definitely the cutest laundry basket I’ve ever seen! Think it’s okay for adults?! Can’t wait to see what you do with the nursery! Happy Monday!

    That’s what weekends are for! Baby shopping is fun, but you’re right, so overpriced for what it is. They’ve got you!

    Cannot believe how quick this month has gone! Those cheese fries look amazing. I’m only kind of aware what normal furniture costs (since I’m a fan of thrift shops for that stuff- as long as I’m buying hard surfaces; nothing with fabric… creeps me out), so I can only imagine how hard it is to swallow the cost of baby furniture! -Dorrie @ Rt 1 US 1

    Cheese fries are amazing! I had some loaded cheese fries yesterday. That’s such a cute laundry basket!

  • Reply Marie August 15, 2016 at 10:19 am

    The simple wipes usually work really good on color transfer. However, lately I have been using the Target (scented) ones and they seem to do a better job on the color transfer. You can also try Mr. Clean Magic eraser, that also has worked well. Those cheese fries look so good. Congrats on your pregnancy. I’m so very happy for you.

    YUM to all this food, especially that donut and the cheese fries! How adorable is that little Christmas outfit?!
    Cheers to a fabulous week and birthday twinning <3

    I’m sure they are best friends in the making 🙂
    I need to start making a donut a weekend staple myself.

    I didn’t think that I was hungry until I started reading your post and seeing all the fantastic things that you ate this weekend! Those philly cheesesteaks looks awesome, but the cheese fries might look even better. Hooray for getting some things done around the house, and puppy cuddles are always the best! Happy start of your birthday week! Have the best time celebrating with all of your free goodies!

    Did you eat your donut around the straw?

    Never heard of the Simple wipes miracle cure.

    I love that sparkly laundry basket!

    I’m pretty sure I will crave cheese too when I’m pregnant so I don’t blame ya! The sparkly laundry basket is adorable and I’m sure it’s so fun picking things for the baby piece by piece.

    It is so difficult to explain to non-American people why that orange fake cheesy stuff (pictured on the fries) is so wonderful!
    Sweet Mac, I’ll never tire of seeing pics of him.

  • Reply Teh Megan August 16, 2016 at 9:28 am

    Puppy snuggles are seriously the best. Meri has been extra snuggly lately, I can’t get enough.
    Now I want fries. Thanks, yo.
    Birthday free shit is my favorite thing. I’m not sure who thought of it, but yes please thank you very much.

  • Reply Laura August 16, 2016 at 11:46 am
