Weekend Shenanigans

This weekend went by so fast! I suppose they always do. I completely forgot for pretty much the entire day yesterday that it was St Patrick’s Day. Oops! Zoe did wear green on Friday, for Green Day at school.

Saturday morning, Zoe and I met Laura and S early to do some shopping and eating! We started out at Target, ventured to Nordstrom Rack and then had lunch at Cowfish. I scored two new tops for under $20 each that I can wear for work or play. This Halogen top in the gray/green color (it looks more green to me but says gray) and this DR2 ladder stitch top in black. I want to go back and get the DR2 one in mulberry too. I love them so much! Zoe got three pairs of shoes!! Two pairs of Zaxy closed toe sandals (a clear and a blue pair, they glow in the dark!!!) that are awesome for daycare!!! And a pink pair of the Thea shoes from Rachel Shoes. She had these last year in a smaller size and got a lot of wear out of them. They held up pretty well, considering how rough she is on her shoes.

Our lunch was so delicious. We shared the parmesan fries and crab ragoon dip, and I got sushi for my main dish and Zoe ordered the kids burger bento box. So much food!! So good! Plus, Zoe really loves crab dip.

After lunch, Zoe and I headed to the outlets to do some more shopping. I love looking for clothes at H&M for her. They have the cutest stuff at reasonable prices. And it is stuff I dont see every other kid in, like Carter’s brand. Which, dont get me wrong, I like their stuff too.

After all that shopping, we made a well deserved ice cream stop! Well, frozen yogurt. Same thing. Zoe had so much fun picking her toppings! Another date to the ice cream shop needs to happen soon!

That evening, we stopped by my SIL’s house for a few minutes and got Papa John’s to go. When we were at Target earlier in the day, I bought Zoe the Baby Shark Fishing Game. She loves it so much!!! We have played every night since we got it. It plays a portion of the baby shark song and is pretty much like the regular fishing game.

Sunday we did our grocery shopping and then came home and cleaned and straightened the house up. Zoe took a decent nap that allowed me to go outside and cut our front yard. Can you believe it???? Grass cutting in March. Something so wrong about that. All our trees have been blooming down here too (started in February, really). Allergy and tornado season are starting early this year!

We listed our house Sunday night, and now we are trying to decide if this is the right time. There is literally nothing on the market that we want to buy in the area we are looking. Everything that does come along that is decent, is under contract within a day or two. It is a tough, stressful time! We had a showing booked 45 minutes after our house listed, and we had one yesterday morning. We have cameras all throughout our house, and we watched the people mess around with Chris’s stuff in the basement. The agent was totally unprofessional. It has really thrown an extra layer of anxiety on top of the situation. WTF is wrong with people???

Meanwhile, I am enjoying how clean and orderly our house is looking! I hate clutter so much, and we got rid of a lot of stuff. There is a whole guest room of shit that we probably could just let go still. I am highly contemplating that!

I meant to have this post published yesterday, but I forgot to schedule it. Happy Weekend Shenanigan Wednesday!

    I love that picture of the kiddos in the Target cart! It makes me happy. It took significantly less time for them to warm up to each other this time!! Also, all that food!! She’s so cute with her game!

    Good luck with finding a house! (And selling yours!) We have a camera for the dogs but we didn’t have it when we listed our last house. I’d never even thought about watching people (…or being watched!). Yikes!!
    You and Zoe had the BEST Saturday! I love that she’s a little foodie like her mama! I love that green/grey top, too!

    Good luck with the house! We have been looking too but itโ€™s so stressful and keep having big money things happen (replacing all of our appliances, dental work, life). Ugh. We need to mow our grass, too! Seems so early!!

    Good luck with house hunting. It’s so stressful. I’m most likely going to list my place in the next few years and dread it. Little Zoe is so cute, she is always so happy. Love it.

    My girls would love the baby shark game. So cute. I love all the yummy food you had this week!

    OH MY GOSH… that’s crazy. Glad you have cameras in your house though!!!! … That’s exciting you’ve got it listed. Hope you can find your dream home!!!!
    & what the heck is it with Zoe’s hair looking long that is making her look so GROWN UP???

    That’s so cute she loves crab dip. She is getting so big and looks so fun. Wishing you all the best with the house. I know how that can be and it can be sooo stressful. We also have cameras all around and would always watch when someone can to see it. People are so weird and some of the things that people don’t like or want in a house is comical. I hope the perfect house opens up for you! Sierra Beautifully Candid

    Parmesan fries sound SO good and look delicious too. Holy shopping scores, that’s awesome. I look a lot at H&M too and a new children’s consignment store opened by us that gets some of last season clothing from different places brand new…I got Bella 2 dresses with tags on them for $6 the other day…total score! I can’t believe people would mess with your stuff, that is so wrong! I wish you luck that you find something you love and yours sells all in the right time ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love clothes that do double duty – work and play is where it’s at.

    Listing/looking is a super stressful time. Good luck!

  • Reply ShootingStarsMag March 25, 2019 at 9:36 am

    That’s so crazy people were messing with stuff in your house: I mean, I know you’re allowed to look around but that doesn’t mean you have to touch everything. Good luck though! And I hope you find something you love soon. Yay for getting great deals on clothes/shoes! Mmm…frozen yogurt. I could go for that right now.
