Weekend Shenanigans

I seriously am amazed every Sunday evening when the realization kicks in that the weekend is just about over. Like where did it even go?

Friday – We stayed in Friday evening and caught up on some of our shows. I made soup for dinner for myself, Chris had Subway. I was exhausted! I had worked from home on Thursday, trying to fight off some horrible bug that Chris had caught. Apparently that took a lot out of me!

Saturday – I was Cinderella Saturday morning. I am in spring cleaning mode so I did a deep clean of the entire main floor of our house. All of the blankets were washed, the bathmat and rugs in the bathrooms, lots of dusting and floor cleaning. I even cleaned some of the baseboards. #LOATHE

We headed to three thrift shops. We scored a few games and I hit the mother-load at the last one that had a ton of great books. I picked up these two for 99 cents. (Cue the Thrift Shop song….But shit, it was 99 cents…….)


I couldn’t believe how many great hardback books they had there for 99 cents! I will be sure to look more closely at the book sections from now on. I wanted the South Beach Diet book for all the recipes it had and I can’t wait to dive in to The Beach House.

I was starving, so we headed downtown to try a new place, BYOB. (Build Your Own Burger) We ordered cheese fries to split, and we each had our own burger. The cheese fries were delicious!


The burgers though? The burgers were horrible. Both of them were burnt and disgusting. Chris took one bite of his and was like…I am not eating this shit. I ate about 1/4 of mine because I was freaking starving and needed to have something. Had I not been starving, I wouldn’t have eaten mine either. It was really really burnt to the point it was crunchy. And it was $9.50 for just the burger. It didn’t come with a side or anything. That is really high for a crappy burger.

I have had better burgers at Whataburger and Sonic, I am sad to say. It’s ok though, because Jack Brown’s is just around the corner and I will stick with them next time! They never disappoint!

Saturday evening we stayed in and watched Scandal, Shark Tank, Grimm and some reruns of How I Met Your Mother. We ordered Chinese food, I had the egg drop soup and it was delicious! It more than made up for my shitty burger experience.

Sunday – I worked on some blog things, meal planned and grocery shopped. I got caught up on some magazine reading. I also completed our video game cataloging for all the vintage games we have. I still need to do what we have upstairs for the newest systems, but that wont take very long at all. It feels so good to have that done!

In other news, I was super excited to receive a box of Greystone Bakery brownies in the mail on Friday!

Greystone BakeryThese brownies are delicious!!! They are all-natural and kosher brownies baked from scratch. There are no preservatives and you can certainly taste the freshness! My favorite thing about them other than being delicious, is that there is a larger mission behind their company. They have an open-hiring policy to support low-income individuals and their families.

My favorite was the Brown Sugar Blondie. I love Blondies!!!


I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! Can you believe this is the last full week of March?!?! I am not even sure how that happened!

    I will take a brown sugar blondie please and thank you! Boo to the burger being so horrible- but those cheese fries look like they were INCREDIBLE. Yum!! This weekend shocked me how fast it went- I seriously blinked and I was back at work.

    Ugh I hate it when food places disappoint like that. You’re better than me, though, if my burger had been burnt like that I would have complained and demanded to speak to a manager. I DO NOT pay for bad food. I just don’t. We rarely go out, so when we do I expect things to be better than I can make at home. YAY for cheap books, though!

    Hahah every sunday I have the same conversation with my fiance… “Why do they think we only need a 2 day break after working 5 days?!” They always seem to go by so fast!!

    The Thrift Shop gif made me lol. Those cheese fries look amazing but that really sucks that you had to pay that much for a crappy burger.

  • Reply Pamela @ A Little Glitter March 23, 2015 at 11:12 am

    Nothing is worse than paying money for awful food. That totally sucks. Those brownies look delicious btw!

  • Reply Tracie March 23, 2015 at 11:20 am

    I hate when shitty food happens when you eat out. I always think I should send it back, then don’t because I don’t want my food spit in by a pissed off worker. So then, I pay $9 for food I don’t eat. Womp, womp.

    I used to check out the hard back books all the time at Goodwill… & been guilty of buying back my own book I’ve donated 🙂 haha

  • Reply Kateri Von Steal March 23, 2015 at 11:59 am

    Blondies are my favorite too!!

    OH so how can a BYOBurger place be BAD.. THAT IS SO DISAPPOINTING! A bad burger – is just – sacrilege!!!!!!

    And I told Klay that this coming weekend, we need to SPRING CLEAN the entire house! Like steam the floors, deep clean the carpets – nook and cranny that shit. hehehehe

    OH – and It was 99cents?!?! Love that song, and sing it whenever I get a great thrift store find!

    Thrift store books are my favorite..such good prices!

  • Reply kathy@real talk March 23, 2015 at 12:22 pm

    i had a terrifying realization over the weekend – end of march means my work fuck off time is HALF OVER ALREADY. that time just blew right by!!!

    disappointing food is the worst; you pay money to eat good food, not something that tastes like someone shat on it. 🙁

  • Reply Morgan March 23, 2015 at 1:32 pm

    It sounds like I wasn’t the only one who was disappointed in BYOB. On top of the not so great food, the service was absolutely horrible!! The atmosphere is really neat though. I just wish the rest of the experience lived up to it.

  • Reply Pamela March 23, 2015 at 1:40 pm

    What a great weekend! Minus the gross burgers though. That really sucks. The cheese fries look to die for though! So do those brownies… yum! Happy Monday!

  • Reply Julia @ Grace Makes New March 23, 2015 at 1:55 pm

    I hate that feeling on Sunday night, it’s like UGH why is tomorrow Monday already?? LOL I love that Thrift Shop song, Adam and I will occasionally just blurt out “I wear your grandad’s clooothes!” at each other cuz we’re weird like that. Ugh a bad burger experience is the worst, especially when you’ve been craving! Those brownies and blondies look amazing!!

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph March 23, 2015 at 4:11 pm

    F that restaurant! I hope you got the burgers taken off the bill. That sounds terrible.

    Baseboards. Hate! I try to do them once a quarter.

  • Reply Allison March 23, 2015 at 5:37 pm

    I cant even look at those cheese fries without my mouth watering. Looks divine!!! Also, I seriously hate cleaning baseboards… more power to ya lady!

  • Reply Kerry March 23, 2015 at 7:53 pm

    Such a bummer on the burger, I hope you got them taken off the bill. The fries look good though. Brownies in the mail? Yum, and I love their mission.

  • Reply ellesees March 24, 2015 at 6:45 am

    love finding cheap books. i had to cut myself off from that due to the pile i have! sucks when a meal out isn’t good. and double if they are both bad! luckily the rest of them were better!

  • Reply Laura March 24, 2015 at 7:53 am

    I’m with you 100% on that place — not my favorite, especially when there is a much better place less than 500 feet from there. Or BBQ or pizza across the street. BROWNIES!!! YUUUUUM!

  • Reply Lindsay @ Broke and Bougie March 24, 2015 at 1:33 pm

    Those brownies!!!

  • Reply Kay R. March 27, 2015 at 1:39 am

    The cheese fries really do look amazing. But ugh for the burnt burgers. Those blondies tho … yum!

  • Reply Teh Megan March 27, 2015 at 9:32 am

    Now I want some cheese fries. That shit isn’t funny, yo.
    We have several “gourmet” burger places here and they are supposed to be awesome and I’m like, eh, mediocre at best.
