Weekend Shenanigans

I had to double check the date this morning, last day of July already?? Sometimes I sit on the couch Sunday night winding down and I think….how is the weekend already gone? What did we even do?? Work days never go by that quickly, am I right??

Saturday morning, I was out bright and early during Zoe’s morning nap cutting the side yard. Man was it HOT!!! I got 3/4 of the way down that huge hill and decided to quit for the day. I had stepped in no less than about 15 aunt piles and had bites all up and down my legs. And a damn armadillo decided to dig holes all over the place, and I had rolled my ankle in one of them. I hate those nasty animals and their gross looking tails. Ew.

Chris’s friend was coming over to watch Tomorrowland with him, so Zoe and I decided to have a girls day! We headed out to JcPenney and Target. JCP was having a Black Friday in July sale and I scored all the clothes for Zoe in that picture above for $17!!! Target had some toys on clearance, so I scooped up that tea party set for $8.98. Every princess needs tea party supplies!!! Cartwheel had a coupon for 20% off all BlueRays and DVDs so I grabbed my favorite, Beauty and the Beast, for Zoe to kick off Christmas shopping. I want her to have a strong collection so what better time to start! I also grabbed some groceries and then headed over to Moe’s BBQ to pick up some lunch for the boys.

Saturday night I wasted an hour and a half of my life watching Catfight on Netflix. Have you seen this movie?? I had really high hopes for it because Sandra Oh and Alicia Silverstone were in it. You guys, if you haven’t watched it….DONT!!! It was the dumbest movie I have ever seen. I don’t even know why I finished watching it? I think out of curiosity to see what the point of it was? Spoiler, there wasn’t one. Sandra Oh should have stuck with Grey’s.

Sunday morning during Zoe’s nap, I finished cutting the side yard and then tackled the front. I have to say I have our grass looking pretty darn good!!! The rest of the day was spent playing with Zoe, making sweet potato BBQ nachos with the leftovers from Saturday, and Chris and I make a huge dent in the first season of Ozark. Now that is a good show!!!!

This is my last week working from home, so cue all the tears. I am going to be soaking up every last second of this extra time with Zoe and enjoying my mornings without that nasty commute downtown. I woke up this morning and worked out to get my week started right. I lost 2 pounds last week and 2 pounds the week before that. My goal is to be at my pre-pregnancy weight before Zoe hits 40 weeks old. I figure 40 weeks on, 40 weeks off. I have 8 more pounds to go! I will be getting a little time in with one of my nephews this week. Hopefully finish up the audiobook I have been listening to before it is due back to the library. And I am hoping my new glasses will be in so I can go pick them up one day this week!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Best wishes for a quick and painless Monday! Linking up with Biana.

    You are rocking the weight loss, girl! Wish I could say the same. Hope you get in lots of snuggles this week – hate that you have to go back to working in the office so soon!

    It seriously is so crazy to think that it’s the last day of July isn’t it! This year has just flown by, and I can’t believe that we’re more than half way done with 2017! Hooray for scoring some cute outfits for Zoe and starting off her Disney collection with the best princess movie ever, in my opinion! I hope that you have a great Monday as well and soak up some great time with Zoe too!

    Work days are the slowest, ever! Ugh, sorry to hear about the ant bites. You got some great deals this weekend and that little tea set is so cute. Beautifully Candid

    I am tearing up for you! You and Zoe will have lots of girl’s days in the future! 8lbs has nothing on you girl! Hope this day and sweet week treats you right!

  • Reply Cara July 31, 2017 at 10:19 am

    Aw, I know it’s going to be hard to not get to stay at home with her so sending you hugs and hoping the transition is smooth! And you rocked the deals this weekend! Can’t believe you scored all that!

    You know you’re going to get a thumbs up from me about getting Beauty & the Beast (original) 🙂

    I hadn’t even heard of that movie and now I certainly wont be wasting my time watching it – sorry that you had to!! Hope you have a great week! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    Great job with the weight loss!! I saw the little ad on Netflix for Ozark & it sounded good!

  • Reply kathy @ more coffee, less talky July 31, 2017 at 12:37 pm

    Totally going to binge Ozarks!

    For some reason, I laughed that you said “damn Armadillo!” because that’s not something we canadians say a lot; in fact, I’ve never seen one – ever (except on TV etc). But sucks that you rolled your ankle; hope it heals fast. DAMN ARMADILLO!!

  • Reply Alexandra July 31, 2017 at 2:00 pm

    Sounds like a good weekend! 🙂 Love it when you find great sales, and yes you have to build that Disney movie collection! 🙂 Great job on your chores and your weight loss journey! 🙂 XO – Alexandra

    Like Kathy,I had to laugh reading about the armadillo…I very much doubt we have any of those in Canada besides maybe in a zoo. haha. That totally sucks though! Yay Beauty and the Beast for Zoe!! 😉 Sorry to hear about not working from home anymore – I bet you will miss her!! The time with her that you do have will feel like great quality time though 🙂 Way to go with the healthy eating/exercising and weight loss- good for you girl!!!

  • Reply Kay July 31, 2017 at 3:29 pm

    I swear July was the fastest month this year!! Anyway sucks you have to go back to the office soon. But I bet the evenings with her will be even more exciting! Ps I’ve never seen an armidillo I don’t think. Just on tv lol

  • Reply laura July 31, 2017 at 3:56 pm

    I, too, hate armadillos. They are so gross looking. I love that you’re ( I actually typed we first, LOL) are starting her Disney collection so early! I want to come over for a tea party!!

  • Reply Danielle July 31, 2017 at 7:01 pm

    I am so glad to hear Ozark is good. I want to start that. Ugh. I wish Sandra Oh was still on Grey’s. I miss her. You totally scored a ton at JC Penney’s and Target. Jealous that I missed those sales.

  • Reply SMD July 31, 2017 at 7:18 pm

    Major JCP score! What a nice girls’ day out.

  • Reply emelia July 31, 2017 at 8:04 pm

    Good scores, I love a great deal! YAY for Beauty and the Beast- good way to start Zoe off! AWESOME job on the weight loss- that’s great girlfriend…8 pounds- so close, you got this!

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis July 31, 2017 at 8:43 pm

    So fun you and Zoe got lots of girl time this weekend especially since you need to enjoy all her smiles and snuggles before going back to the office this week. Bitter and not sweet right?! The silver lining is that your company let you work from home to adjust into mommyhood for a good amount of time which not many companies offer. I think that was a blessing and kudos to your company because the maternity leave in the US is ridiculous! Sending hugs as you go back into office life xo Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

  • Reply Laura August 1, 2017 at 8:10 am

    I’m with you – weekends always seem to go fast but this weekend in particular went SO fast! I blinked and it was Monday again! Enjoy the last week at home!!

  • Reply Audrey August 1, 2017 at 9:05 am

    Ughhh. Why can’t work just let you stay home?? Poop on them 🙁
    I’m so amused by your armadillo problems… We don’t have those critters and it cracks me up that they cause problems like a mole or rabbit or something would do here. Lol

  • Reply Kate August 1, 2017 at 9:41 am

    Girl I will never understand why the weekends fly by, and the work week moves sooooo slow. Sending all the *hugs* this week, as a new momma who deals with a horrid commute into downtown as well. Enjoy all the snuggles, giggles, and smiles <3

  • Reply Marina @ Happy Healing August 1, 2017 at 2:21 pm

    Nice job on the weight loss! Weekends totally fly by – it’s crazy. I hope you have a good week and I’m glad I found your blog!

    Caleb had an old pink singing teapot and he loved the damn thing so much that it broke. Hahaha. Don’t know how Jerry felt about the pink teapot for Caleb but he discovered it in PT and loved it!

  • Reply Lauren August 2, 2017 at 8:33 am

    The mall was super crowded (so I was annoyed) and I walked into JCP and heard the Christmas music for the sale and my annoyance made me cringe and I left but now I’m mad I missed out on the deals. I’m watching Ozark too. Not sure how I feel about it. I mean, how many bad guys does one show need? Is a drug cartel not enough? I just finished ep 4, I think. I’ll definitely finish but it just seems like so much.

  • Reply Ashley August 2, 2017 at 10:41 am

    Zoe is the cutest!! Now you have me wanting to watch Beauty & the Beast!

  • Reply kristen August 4, 2017 at 3:39 pm

    that movie looks so bad lol. what a bummer because the cast looks pretty okay. you guys have definitely convinced me on Ozark, once this kitchen reno is over KC and I will watch it! you’re killing it with the weight loss girl.
