weekend shenanigans

Weekend Shenanigans

Another weekend is on the books, folks! I honestly don’t know where my time goes on the weekends, I swear I don’t!

Friday my mom had to have surgery on her foot, so my sister and I agreed to work short days and head out there together to take them food and check on her after the surgery. I stopped by Little Italy’s to grab some pizza’s for everybody, my sister made them ham salad and some sides for the weekend.

I am glad my sister and I went out there together. We got some great quality time in the car to and from, and we all sat around and laughed and told stories for a few hours to keep my mom company. I also got to see my fur sisters. They are freaking huge for not even four months old!!!

Saturday, Chris and I hit up a few thrift stores, and had lunch with his parents at Jack Brown’s. I also got to stop by Marshal’s and picked up something for my office and a Butter nail polish for $4.99! Isn’t this color just gorgeous???


Sunday was meal planning and grocery shopping, along with some blogging work and house cleaning.

My weekend eats:


Friday for lunch I grabbed an unwhich from Jimmy John’s(yum!!). I picked up the red velvet oreo’s Friday night because my nephew and I were curious. They are delicious, go get you some. My mom’s best friend sent her Smiley cookies from Eatin’ Park (our favorite treat from Greensburg, PA!!!) My mom shared with my sister and I, so I brought one home for Chris to try. Publix had the most amazing fragrant strawberries this weekend, so I had to pick some up for breakfast! Along with snacking on hot aired popcorn and I had a Southern Cobb Salad for dinner Sunday evening.


And just like that, the Sunday Blues arrived…

I hope everyone had an amazing weekend! Let’s do this!

    Say whaaaaaat!? A butter london polish for $4.99! What a freaking steal! You know I’m jealous! I recognized those cookies right away!! When J and I drove to Pittsburgh, we stopped at an Eat’n Park right when we arrived (the drive was treacherous and I was pretty much in tears) and the staff there were SO lovely and gave us free cookies to welcome us to the state (and to cheer me up)! Made such an impression on me and now whenever I see the cookies they make me feel so happy!

    Why are the weekends so fast? Seriously, blink of an eye.

    I love the opening e-card. LOL

    Great color polish! I love finding stuff like that at Marshalls. Although I am not buying any polish until I work my way through the zillion I have.

    I love that you call them your fur sisters! T gets mad when I call the cat her fur brother. That was nice of you and your Sis to bring food to your parents. I hope your Mom has a speedy recovery!

    Whitney and I got those Red Velvet Oreos last week, and we love them. They are almost gone, and we just got them on Wednesday.

    have an awesome week!

    yay! So glad your mom’s surgery went well!! And you took the world’s best pizza!!! I have never even used that butter nail polish because of how expensive it is, but maybe I need a Marshall’s trip with you!!

    And that unwich looks delicious!!

    My Sunday evenings I feel like I’m invincible and somehow think it’s a great idea to stay up late watching TV – then all of a sudden the Monday alarm hits and all the naps and sleeping in from the weekend goes to waste. Then I drag around all week. Viscous cycle!

    That unwich has me intrigued because I don’t love bread. About halfway through I usually give up & just eat the insides of a sandwich.

  • Reply chelsea jacobs February 9, 2015 at 12:23 pm

    That nail polish is so pretty!

  • Reply Nadine February 9, 2015 at 3:55 pm

    Those oreos! I want to try them but I am afraid I will eat them all in one sitting. Can you taste the cream cheese frosting? Or does it taste like a normal oreo? Haha

  • Reply alyssa February 9, 2015 at 3:55 pm

    Okay I neeeed to find me some red velvet oreos! Glad to hear you approved and they aren’t gross, haha

  • Reply Julia @ Grace Makes New February 9, 2015 at 4:56 pm

    WOW that’s an amazing deal on that Butter polish! So pretty! I was eyeing those RV oreos in the store this weekend, I may need to get some now! I love unwiches from JJ’s!

    Glad your mom’s surgery went well.

    I bought those Oreos today. Maybe, and I’m just sayin’ maybe, I opened them in the car and ate 3 on the way home. It’s like a 10 minute drive from the supermarket to my house. Three showed restraint.

  • Reply Heather {My Little HEA} February 9, 2015 at 9:23 pm

    Butter London polish for that cheap would be an awesome find!! And it’s a gorgeous color – win! Loved the red velvet Oreo’s, and why do they come in such small packages?! Praying for a speedy recovery for your mom; it’s great you both could be there for her! Looks like a fab weekend to me! Oh, I need to try the unwich option from Jimmy’s, it looks so good! I love that option at Red Robin but I didn’t know Jimmy’s does it too!

    You know, I used to get bummed out on Sunday, because my weekend was half over and I was sad that my free time went so fast. At some point that stopped happening and I’m not sure when or why, but I’m glad because it’s so silly to spend all of Sunday being sad!

    P.S. I made your peanut butter cookie recipe, but I did it the lazy way and skipped a couple steps, plus I made it with weird “natural” sugar. I’m going to give it another go after we finished this batch. The natural sugar says “Great for baking!” right on the bag and that is a LIE!

  • Reply Amanda February 14, 2015 at 3:38 pm

    Pete and I almost got the Red Velvet Oreos the other day! We choose Smore cookies instead. These might have to be on our menu this weekend though!
