Weekend Shenanigans

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! It was a rainy one here, with Delta moving through our area. We spent most all of the weekend indoors, which I didn’t mind.

Friday evening we ordered from our favorite Mexican place. It has been a long work week, and was well deserved. Zoe’s favorite thing is always refried beans. It is the first thing she finishes off her plate, and is always asking for more.

Saturday morning we did a Halloween craft from our box we got at Target. It was $5 for 4 crafts. I cant find it online anymore, otherwise I would share the link. The crafts are so cute, and Zoe turned the box into a spooky dollhouse for her Little People princesses.

That afternoon, we went for a car ride and then settled in for some football. There were some upsets in the SEC this weekend. Sorry Missy! I won’t lie, Chris, Zoe and I were chanting MISS IT MISS IT during the end of the Auburn game. LOL. We got our karma back to us during our game when things were hairy for awhile. We pulled out the big W though, so Roll Tide! Of course with football, comes lots of snacks! With her mouthful, Zoe squealed “I LOVE FOOTBALL!” I made seven layer dip, bbq smokies and we had the Mexican left over from the night before. Took pictures of none of it and went straight to eating!

Sunday morning we had french toast for breakfast and had a slow morning. It was lovely.

The rain really knocked down a lot of leaves in our backyard. Good thing Zoe loves to play with her rake! I plan to put her to work soon.

I declared Sunday Halloween Movie day, and we made popcorn and settled in for some Hocus Pocus. It was Zoe’s first time watching it. I was worried that it might be too scary, or that she wouldn’t be interested in it since it isn’t animated. I was wrong! She sat there and watched the entire thing. She kept commented that she didn’t like the witches, but that they had beautiful costumes. I hope that she always looks for something positive to say about people, even when she doesn’t like them.

We got the candy apple pretzels from Target, but they aren’t near as good as the caramel apple ones from Aldi. I also made homemade brownies and made it a la mode with some ice cream and hot fudge.

And we finished the night off with some personal pan deli pizzas from Publix. To Zoe’s delight, “A whole cheese pizza just for me!!!!” Calm down, Kevin!

And that was a wrap on our weekend. Chris has off today, and I don’t. The real estate world cares not about Presidents Day. I started out this morning with an hour long Heather Robertson workout that she just posted. I had to make up for all the calories consumed this weekend. Oopsy. Got to get back on that train! It was a great workout and I burned over 400 active calories. Definitely check it out! Have a great week!

    I plan on doing that Heather workout when I get home today – hopefully it doesn’t kill me. That Auburn game man – talk about giving me a heart attack!! Look at all that delicious food. We stayed indoors all weekend too, and it was so nice.

    We stayed indoors all weekend, too, because of the weather. And honestly it was nice to be lazy! I don’t have off today, either. Adding the Heather Robertson workout to my list!!

    The Kevin comment had me laughing. I am sooo glad Zoe liked Hocus Pocus too. It is funny that we both had lazy movie days yesterday. My girls said they want to watch it again. And they kept asking why the skeleton (Billie) was chasing the kids down. What did he want to tell them? It was sooo cute when they realized what he wanted to do. I love a weekend inside.

    What a perfectly fall weekend! You inspired me to try the Aldi caramel apple pretzels. I am sitting in my office right now snacking on them. SO GOOD!
    I love how sweet Zoe was with the witches. That’s an amazing quality to have in a kid! And so creative with the Little People housing!

    You have a a fashionista on your hands!!!! I’m glad she wasn’t afraid & now you can enjoy Hocus Pocus together.
    We’re getting some rain tonight & I’m dreading all the leaves its going to knock down. I’m loving the color
    I’ve gotten those little target dollar spot crafts before for youth events & they are always fun.

    I hope the Aldi near here has the caramel apple pretzels when I go this week!

    The Halloween stuff from Target is super cute especially for the price.

    We have that rain up this way today.

    Oh man those taquitos look good! Ugh, I am not sure we will win another game this year. How the mighty have fallen! I need to watch Hocus Pocus and get in the Halloween mood!

    Totally craving French toast and some Mexican food right now! And how fun is that craft box, how did I not know this is a thing! <3

    That craft box sounds so fun. My nieces and nephew LOVE doing crafts. It makes me happy, because I do too.
    Your Sunday sounds fantastic – I hope to have a Halloween movie night soon. Glad to hear Zoe enjoyed Hocus Pocus, and that’s adorable that she complimented the witches’ clothes, even though she didn’t like them.

    I’m craving takeout these days just because I don’t feel like putting the time into cooking/cleaning up!
    We’ve 100% started relying on frozen pizza on Fridays.
