Weekend Shenanigans

Well hey there, blog land. I am not going to lie. I am freaking TIRED this morning. I didn’t sleep much last night, and my nerves are completely shot. We had severe weather overnight, and if you know anything about me…you know I do NOT do severe weather. At all. Nope. None. Some of you may be asking why in the hell I am living in the southeast. I ask myself this question every time April rolls around. With a tornado watch, an actively loud thunderstorm and flash flooding….I basically stayed up worrying all night. Misery loves company though, and my sister was worrying herself to death as well….so we texted back and forth for a few of those hours. This morning Birmingham woke up to some serious flooding. Lots of road closures, people being rescued on boats, etc. I am just SO SO thankful we had no tornadoes. I probably need to seek counselling for my fear of tornadoes. Seriously.

Anyways, enough talk about the weather….let’s take a look at this weekend.

Friday evening we went to dinner with my sister in law and her family, then came back watched some TV and went to bed fairly early. Perfect night if you ask me.

Saturday – Chris worked outside in our yard for awhile cutting grass and removing some leaves and debris while I cleaned the inside of the house. Then, I hung a picture that Chris surprised me with on Monday in our kitchen. I LOVE it!!!


After all that work, we decided to take it easy and spend the afternoon enjoying the AMAZING weather on our back deck with a few beers, and our dogs.




It started to cool off when the clouds rolled in, so I decided to go get the grocery shopping done since I knew it was going to rain all day Sunday. It felt so good to just get it out of the way! When I got home, we watched some TV and cuddled the dogs.


 Chris and Mac fell asleep holding hands/paws. So sweet!

Sunday – The perfect lazy day. We pretty much watched TV and did nothing ALL day. It was wonderful. I also had an idea for  fun snack that I created all on my own yesterday afternoon! Sweet potato chips. I love when something just comes together perfectly! I will be sharing the recipe next Tuesday, so be on the look out for that!



I enlisted Kathy to be my fitness guru go to because duh, she knows fitness jesus and is a complete bad ass. She suggested that I try body beast. I will start it tomorrow! Wish me luck! I couldn’t start anything today on no sleep. I have a feeling you need to be well rested for something called body beast.

Linking up with Kelli today for picture practice. This week topic was animal and hello, Mac!!! Perfect test subject.

It is time for me to load up on some caffeine and try to make it through this work day without taking a nap under my desk.

    Ugh, those storms are on there way here this afternoon. I’m kind of hoping my power goes out so I have a reason not to work! 🙂

    I love that you caught a picture of your two loves holding hands/paws while sleeping! So adorable!

    really don’t think your fear of tornadoes is irrational. i don’t know you live in a place with them. i would constantly be freaking out!

    Those sweet potato chips look awesome!! And yes, that weather was something else last night. Add a newborn who hates loud thunder like her mama, and we got little sleep. Lightning struck VERY close to our house when I was feeding her around 3:!5 this morning and she and I both jumped. Everyone else in the house was asleep. (My parents were here, too.) And it’s just April 7th. Hoping April doesn’t have crazy weather, although I know that’s like asking for a cool summer. Now if we can just get rid of all the pollen. Thankfully the rain, or floods, washed most of it away. It just doesn’t need to return!

    Oh my gosh. Those sweet potato chips look delicious! I can’t wait for the recipe!

    Loud thunderstorms always keep me up to! But if it’s a “lighter” storm with dispersed thunder and lightning, I actually kind of enjoy it. I’m weird I know…

    Love that picture of your dog on the patio chair, so cute!

    Girl, I feel you on the no sleep thing. Cooper, our little dog, is TERRIFIED beyond belief of storms. Needless to say, he kept Steven and I up all night long. It was miserable! I couldn’t believe all the flooding though when I turned on the news this morning! Scary stuff!!

    The day after no sleep IS a beast so you don’t need to do body beast today. THE END.

    I love that picture for your kitchen!
