weekend shenanigans

Weekend Shenanigans

This weekend I had plans to do all of the things and well…I did none of those things. Oops? It started out innocently enough on Friday at lunch. My goal? Finish at least one person on my Christmas list. I did that and shopped the Sephora VIB sale. Total win. The store didn’t have my foundation so I had to place an online order too. I really needed that now because I have been scraping bottom for weeks. Oh well, what can you do?

Saturday morning I finished reading Trophy Wife, cleaned the house, did some laundry, put together the Pack ‘n Play, and put batteries in any baby items that needed batteries. Mac supervised my assembly of the Pack and Play among a pile of Chris’s shoes in our room. He is a weird one. All hail King of the Nikes.


Then we headed out to watch some football! We started out at Chris’s parents house for the Alabama game and then headed to World of Beer to catch the Georgia vs Auburn game because it was a friend’s birthday and they were there to celebrate. I was happily surprised that Georgia pulled out a win!!! I really thought everything was going to come down to the Iron Bowl…but nope. Then after seeing some more games, I realized that all three of the other top four teams would fall. I can’t say that I am mad about that either…


I found it funny that Washington was chanting “We want Bama” before their game. Ummm you lost to a team that we won 52-6….no you don’t.

Saturday night we didn’t get home until nearly 8pm and I was exhausted from being out all day so nothing else was accomplished. Around 11 or 12 I started to get some pretty strong contractions and they lasted most of the night. I thought we might have to go to the hospital but they quit early morning. I have a feeling I am just going to be on edge a lot over the next two and a half weeks!!!

Yesterday I got up and got out early to run our errands. I have been looking for a robe and some pajamas to wear to the hospital and around the house after baby and I just haven’t been having any luck. I finally found a robe at Kohl’s yesterday and decided to just go to Motherhood for some nursing sleep wear and tops. I got our grocery shopping done and headed back home to get the homemade sauce going for our lasagna for dinner. Every year for our anniversary I make lasagna from scratch. Yum!!!


We caught up on a few of our TV shows and I never got around to hanging all of the decor in the nursery or getting our Christmas stuff out. Chris went to bed pretty early and I stayed up full of anxiety. I should have made more of an effort to at least accomplish one of those things I kept thinking!!! So I stayed up to midnight watching Miracle on 34th Street and writing out some thank you cards. At least I can cross those of my list.


This guy didn’t seem to mind some of the down time either…


And just like that, another weekend has come and gone and I still have lots to do! This weekend was the first weekend I really thought, could this be the last weekend before baby? Who knows?! I have a lot to do at work this week. My pipeline has gotten long again and I need to do as much as I can to stay caught up before I go on leave. One night after work, I might have a hanging party in the nursery to at least knock that out. The Christmas stuff can wait until next Saturday. What have you got going on?

Linking up with Biana.

    I was so excited to see all those teams go down this week, though I’d hate to see Louisville make it any further… this Cats fan can’t be happy for them. Roll Tide all the way! I hope you’re feeling better today! I bet you were so anxious all weekend after having contractions!

    I think the little one is saying they might come a bit early!! Sounds like you are ready for the arrival though!! I’m glad you scored all your goods from the VIB sale and got a little of your shopping done for the holidays – I’m not quite ready for x-mas music, but I’m getting there LOL! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    Girl, I’m a hot mess with house stuff over here and haven’t checked blogs lately . . . glad to hear baby girl is staying put until closer to your do date! And don’t fret about your to do list . . . get done what you can and just let the rest go. You won’t even remember what you needed to do after she’s here! Thinking about you and glad all is well!

    I too loved hearing about all the football upsets! Girl, you are so ready for baby, just think she gets to come home surrounded by Christmas lights and your cute decorations, love it! I hope Monday treats you right beautiful!

    AHHH- contractions!!! I’m going to be stalking you even more than I already did now 😉 I had to get new makeup over the weekend too… I swear I ran out of like everything all at once, haha! YUM to lasagna from scratch!

  • Reply Emelia November 14, 2016 at 10:18 am

    You got so much done! I think I’m going to start wrapping Christmas presents this weekend and hopefully knock a lot off my shopping list too. I watched a bunch of football yesterday and some on Saturday…bad lose for the Steelers, that was tough to watch! I read all day Saturday-finished an entire book it was so good! Hope you have a good week !

    My co-worker who was due in December, had her baby last week! Almost two weeks early but baby and momma are home and are doing well. I think baby girl will be here before you know it. Oh the Sephora sale was so good. I wish it lasted a little longer. haha Happy Monday!

  • Reply Sierra November 14, 2016 at 10:54 am

    It still sounds like you got a good amount of stuff done this weekend. At least you touched the laundry unlike me :/ I hope you get everything done at work that you need to and if she comes early then I’m sure they will understand. A hanging party sounds like fun and I bet Mac will be in attendance. Have a great day! Beautifully Candid

    You are totally inspiring me – I want to do a person on my list every weekend – that will help so much right now start to wear that list down!!!
    Miracle on 34th street… LOVE that one. There’s a scene in that that says “Rebecca Believes”… I always wait for that part so I can yell YEAHHHHH 🙂

    girl, you are nesting it up! That’s the message behind all of your sentiments and I love it. You must be so excited! Crazy to have a weekend that just includes some contractions :). And picking out a huge robe to wear would definitely be one of the first things I did.

    That lasagna looks AMAZING!!!! And yay for completing someone on your list already and YAY for the VIB sale. Cheers to a fabulous week and maybe baby girl making an appearance <3

    I think it sounds like you were really productive this weekend! How exciting that baby could come any day?? I mean, exciting but also a little scary! Haha! (Only because you never know when she’ll make her grand arrival!)

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders November 14, 2016 at 1:30 pm

    It sounds like you got a lot of stuff accomplished this weekend, even if you didn’t get everything done that you wanted. College football was so crazy this wee! I can’t believe that they #2, 3, and 4 teams lost! Chris actually had the Aggie game pulled up on his phone while we were at a winery, but that didn’t help us to win that game…

  • Reply Cara November 14, 2016 at 2:24 pm

    Ahh that lasagna looks heavenly! I was going to say target had a super soft robe the other day in-store, but glad you were able to find one!

  • Reply mandie November 14, 2016 at 2:27 pm

    You sure got a lot done this weekend! Good for you!

    I love the protector of the shoes. So cute. 🙂

  • Reply chelsea jacobs November 14, 2016 at 3:23 pm

    Your instagram totally had me craving homemade lasagna!

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph November 14, 2016 at 4:14 pm

    The weekend flew by, right?

    I think you got a lot done, decor can wait!

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis November 14, 2016 at 10:36 pm

    Oh my those early contractions don’t sound fun but I hope you’ve been feeling better since then. Can you send me your address cause I want to mail a care package to you!

  • Reply ellesees.net November 15, 2016 at 8:51 am

    I am so glad GA won. I was surprised! I hope you are feeling better–I bet those aren’t fun to deal with 🙁

  • Reply laura November 15, 2016 at 11:01 am

    Please give me that lasagna! I want!! You’ll get everything done in time — I have no doubts. 🙂 And I don’t want to talk about football this weekend – it was more than my little heart could take.

  • Reply Kaitlyn November 15, 2016 at 11:56 am

    Awe, Miracle on 34th street <3 I love that movie. I would still love to go to NYC for the parade one year. That would be so neat. That lasagna looks delicious!

  • Reply kristen November 16, 2016 at 3:15 pm

    oh goodness!! busy busy. lol @ mac and chris’s shoes. i leave shoes everywhere. oops. Miracle on 34th Street is the best!! so are you all prepared for baby? missing anything?

  • Reply Rach @ This Italian Family November 16, 2016 at 4:57 pm

    Oh, that homemade lasagna just looks delightful! It has been way too long since I last made lasagna and I’m thinking I need to fix that soon! 🙂

    And I LOVE Miracle on 34th Street! I’ve watched it every Christmas Eve since I was little bitty. Sweet family traditions. 🙂

    And hey, no stress. You will get all the important things done before baby gets here. You got this!

    I thought you’d like this post that I read on a friend’s status update: “What I learned today is that there are a lot of good teams and parity in college football… and then there’s Alabama.”
    That lasagna looks amazeballs!
