Weekend Shenanigans

Another weekend here and gone in a blink of an eye. I cant even remember what I did Friday night other than make sausage, peppers and onions for dinner. So there is that. The weather was weird, cold and rainy Saturday and mostly decent yesterday.

Saturday we had gotten some things done around the house. During Zoe’s nap I deconstructed her baby swing and stored it in the garage, along with a few other items she no longer needs. I also put away the Easter stuff and vacuumed out my car. Chris had some work to do with a friend, and some of his own stuff to do around the house. So when Zoe woke up, her and I had a girls afternoon out. We went to TJ Maxx and went ahead and got all our grocery shopping done while we were out. We picked up a new comforter for our bedroom, a few new bath towels, a romper for Zoe, a dress for me, a cast iron skillet, a new rug for in front of the bath tub. It was quite the successful trip! We had also squeezed in a little coloring time. Color Wonder markers are the best invention ever.

Saturday night, Chris had his friend come over to help me work on something. I really appreciate his time and efforts!! And Chris for setting it up. I also had a glass of wine (or two) and made pigs in a blanket for dinner and tried to let the week roll off my shoulders some. I don’t know what it was about last week, but it wasn’t my favorite.

Sunday was going to be a designated grass cutting day. The first of the season. But Chris had taken apart our lawnmower and realized we needed  a new  belt and promptly called our old lawn guy from when I was pregnant and scheduled him to come out on Tuesday. That left us with the day wide open. We were both craving Thai tea, so we headed out to Saigon Noodle House in Avondale and snacked on some egg rolls and Thai tea, before doing a little shoe shopping for him.

We also strolled through the flea market in Leeds, and when we got home, Chris grilled out some amazing burgers for a late lunch. Zoe wasn’t having anything to do with a nap yesterday, as she was teething something terrible, so we all just hung out around the house for the afternoon. For dinner I made a keto pizza recipe that I cant wait to share with you all this week! It was so easy and delicious! I paired it with a Caesar salad and we caught up on Scandal and Grey’s.

And just like that, the weekend was over. I finished up my favorite book that I have read so far this year this morning, listened to way too much 90’s hip hop, and warned Zoe’s teachers that she may have another tough teething day ahead. It’s Monday and I am trying to look at it as a clean slate. I hope you all have a wonderful week! Linking up with Biana.

    Cannot wait for that recipe! J mowed for the first time of the season on Friday, just in time for us to get snow. 🙁 Hope Zoe is feeling better today! And girl, I feel you on last week. WTF.

    That would be the most amazing coffee shop name ever!!!! 🙂 haha
    I dread starting our lawn mower for the first time – we always have issues that first go-around. We need to cut our grass – if the SNOW WOULD STOP. How stupid is that????
    Cant wait to hear about which book is your favorite!

    Look at your lil coloring artist! So much I’ll be patiently waiting for, the book that’s your fav so far and that pizza recipe! Let’s do it, quit your job and we shall open that coffee shop. First flavor shall be “take this job and shove it!” Lol.

    I have a guess about what (I hope!) is your favourite book so far this year! lol 🙂 Can’t wait to hear tomorrow!!
    Sorry last week wasn’t the best. I hope this week is better! I can’t wait to see that keto pizza recipe too – it would be nice not to have to always make fathead dough…

    Poor Zoe with the teething! I’m definitely not looking forward to that stage with the girls! The weather this weekend was just so weird with how cold it was! I’m glad that y’all were still able to get some stuff done around the house!

    Omg could you believe that horrible fake oncologist on Grey’s?!?!?! I was so scared for Arizona!

  • Reply StephTheBookworm April 9, 2018 at 2:46 pm

    Last week was a MEH week for me, too. I was SO dang busy that I was overwhelmed and stressed.
    Hope this week is better for the both of us!

    I’ve been craving a TJ’s run for a long time. I would totally go to a coffee shop with those names. I’m very interested in this keto pizza – because I love pizza, and if it’s healthy, then bring it on.

    Yum can’t wait to see the Keto Pizza recipe! And I LOVE those color wonder markers. So genius!

    It’s funny to hear someone talk about grilling. Lol. I wish… ha. We haven’t busted the mower out yet either. The grass needs it but I feel weird telling K to mow when we still get snow every other day. Lol
    Love the pics of Zoe coloring! And yay for getting Easter put away! All my stuff is sitting together on the dining room table, waiting for me to bring up the bin from the basement. Lol

    Why do the weekends seem to be the fastest days of the week?!? Zoe looks so cute coloring and all of your food looks so good! Sierra~Beautifully Candid

    Girl, lets open up that coffee shop together! That is so awesome. Tee hee!

    I cannot believe how quickly the weekends fly by. I had hoped to get my Easter decorations put away before going on vacation but I don’t know if that will happen or not. :\
