Weekend Shenanigans

I need someone to get me more coffee stat!!! I was up with a certain someone for nearly three hours in the middle of the night last night.  I would have to gate check the baggage under my eyes this morning if I were flying. The good news is that I was still up at 4:05am to get my workout in this morning. That is what Monday is for, right? Getting back on track. No excuses.

We didn’t really do a whole lot this weekend. I started my Friday with a sushi date…with myself…at Whole Foods.

On the drive home, the sun was out and there was no rain to be found anywhere I could see….and yet there was a random rainbow! Great way to kick off the weekend!

Friday night I made turkey burgers and sauteed zucchini using eggs and almond flour to give it a little something something.

Chris had to work Saturday morning from home, so Zoe and I spent a lot of time playing. She didn’t want to nap anywhere but on me….so I watched Young and Hungry while she snored the afternoon away on my chest on the couch. I didn’t hate the cuddles.

Did you catch the Alabama game??? 59-0. Sorry Vandy. Chris was like…..should we be letting Zoe watch something so violent? Had me laughing. Georgia was looking good too!!!

Sunday morning, my sister and nephew came over and we all went to Target together to get the grocery shopping done. I picked up some Mexican for Chris and I for lunch. The rest of the day, Zoe fought naps (she had NONE) and Chris and I watched Taken, some Fuller House and Better Call Saul.

What didn’t happen this weekend?? Anything I needed to get done. With Zoe not wanting to nap, I didn’t get the grass cut or the house cleaned. There is stuff all over our kitchen table that needs to be put away. I managed to do a few loads of laundry, but I just hate knowing nothing else was done. I did finish a book that I read in the early morning hours on Saturday and Sunday. Like an actual physical book. It is rare I can finish one in two days.

How was your weekend? The weather people say that fall is supposed to return this week. Ummmm it is going to be 90 today so I will believe it when I see it. Happy Monday!

Linking up with Biana.

    Your first paragraph is hilarious – gate checking baggage & being up with a certain someone LOL! Sushi dates, regardless of who you are with is the best ! How are you liking the new season of Fuller House? Hope you have a great start to the week! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    That’s a bummer that you weren’t able to get everything done that you needed to get done, but those Zoe snuggles are well worth it in my opinion! And I know what you mean about not reading actual physical books anymore. Besides library books I hardly ever actually pick one up! That sushi looks so good! I can’t wait until I can have it again!

    LOL I love Chris’ comment about the game. I’m pretty sure we’re supposed to finally be getting cooler temps this week & I so hope we do!

    Hahah gate checking the baggage under your eye. Hilarious. Hope you get more rest tonight! Sushi looks yum.

    Oh no!! Hope she sleeps better tonight!!

  • Reply Laura September 25, 2017 at 1:08 pm

    LOL at Chris’ comment, although gross to Bama. Hopefully she’ll get back to napping soon, but real life confession? I rarely clean during nap time, so props to you for doing it!

    It’s been super hot here the last few days. I am not loving it. Blech!
    You are amazing for getting up early to exercise after being up half the night!

  • Reply Sierra September 25, 2017 at 1:25 pm

    Yumm turkey burgers are one of my favs! I will never understand why they fight there naps but I bet those snuggles were amazing. I hate not getting things done around the house too but then I think about the moments that I enjoyed with the boys a lot better than putting things away. I hope you all get some better sleep tonight <3 Beautifully Candid

    I love random rainbows. I feel like its always a sign for someone about something.

    Check those baggage under your eyes… that made me laugh

  • Reply Kate September 25, 2017 at 2:31 pm

    Love random rainbow sitings! We’ve been watching Better Call Saul too, and have 1 episode left of the 1st season – loving it already! Sorry you didn’t get much sleep last night, sending all the coffee both hot and iced your way <3

    THAT SUSHI THOUGH!!! I think I know what my first meal post-baby will be. haha I’m sorry Zoe had such a rough weekend when it came to sleep. Those days and nights are hard to battle through. Splurge on that extra coffee, and I hope things are much better for you tonight!

  • Reply Danielle September 25, 2017 at 5:49 pm

    Enjoy those cuddles. Even though it is hard to not do anything at that time, it is so worth it. My girls rarely sleep on me anymore. I used to love that so much. Love sushi from Whole Foods. I get it all the time when Rory is out of town or has something in the evenings. Hope you have a good week.

    Aw Zoe snuggles and catching up on some shows on Saturday sounds perfect! I’m sure she wanted all the mama time this weekend which is precious moment to be treasured plus sounds like you needed the R&R. Lol @ Chris’s comment about the game. xo Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

  • Reply Audrey September 25, 2017 at 9:28 pm

    Fall weather is holding out on me, too.
    Hope Zoe gets some sleep this week and lets mama sleep, too!! I don’t know that I could handle it, lol! Don’t stress about the stuff that didn’t get done, though! Zoe won’t always wanna sleep on her mama!

  • Reply Heather September 26, 2017 at 11:56 am

    Aww I hope Zoe starts to sleep better soon. Maybe teething? Poor baby and mama. It can be frustrating when you didn’t get as much done as you wanted to, but you’re right that sometimes other things are just more important and those snuggles won’t be there forever!!
    Way to go with the 4 am work out WOW!! That zucchini looks yummy!

    dear sleep regressions: YOU SUCK. that is all.

    seriously, they’re the worst but then your wee babes looks up at you with smiles and how can you be grumpy at that, amiright? mother nature sure designed babies right otherwise moms would be tossing their babies out at 3am lol

  • Reply Missy @MySh!ttyKitchen September 26, 2017 at 2:13 pm

    My sister is dealing with the sleep regressions too, sounds like no fun! Sorry you didn’t get all you wanted to get done, but hey you saw a rainbow, had two of the best food groups (mexican and sushi) and your team won! That is a win in my book!
