weekend shenanigans

Weekend Shenanigans

Death is upon me this morning. Dramatic much? Chris had been sick all last week and I thought I was in the clear. Then I woke up yesterday morning with a gasp of air. My head hurt. My throat was scratchy. My nose was stuffy. Oh, awesome. So excuse me while I overdose on Emergen-C and Tylenol Severe Cold medicine over here.

This weekend was chill. Before I left for work on Friday, I had placed some Italian Chicken Sausage in the crock pot for dinner. I basically took the family recipe and traded out regular sausage for chicken to “healthy” it up. It turned out awesome! We ate that after work while we binged on 3 hours of the Law and Order SVU/Chicago Fire/Chicago PD crossover. Did anyone else catch that?

Saturday I cleaned the house and cut the back yard. I also took the hedger to the bushes out front. The bushes are not my forte. At all.

I was all

Hoping to achieve…

But instead got something like this…

Not really. Those aren’t our bushes, but it isn’t too far from ours. Oops.

After that fiasco, which may be why I am sick…my allergies were driving me crazy out there…we headed to Best Buy to go buy another media shelf for our games down stairs. It was such a beautiful day, we decided to grab some lunch at Munoz on their patio while we were out. Yum!

Sunday consisted of meal planning, grocery shopping, laundry, finishing the book I was reading, dying a little on the couch, trying out the 200 CC class in Mario Kart (hard a shit) watching Just Go With It (we have seen it about a million times and I love it every time!) and the documentary Going Clear. Basically, Scientology is crazy.

Also, Sunday looked a lot like this…

And just like that, it is time to go back to work! I have a busy week that includes hosting a food drive for The Firehouse Shelter on Wednesday evening at World of Beer. If you live in Birmingham, you should come on out! It will be fun and you will be doing something great for the community!

Linking up with Biana.

    Ugh, hope you feel better soon! My allergies have been in overdrive, too. We need to work on our bushes too but we’re also terrible at it! Our landscaping looks like garbage right now! Hope you have a happy Monday!

    sorry you had to spend your weekend sick! I get worked up in 50cc, so i’m not sure how 200 would go for me. Also yay for food drive!!

    Sorry to hear that you aren’t feeling well, that is no fun. Hope you feel better soon.

    Hope you feel better soon! I admire you for even attempting the bushes, haha. And Mario Kart is so much fun but you’re right, that’s no joke!! 🙂

    Feel better! We haven’t done in any yard work, so I have steered cleared of any deadly aliens in my body 🙂 Although, I am having flashbacks to when I was a dorky 5th grader with glasses, braces, and having to use an inhaler all the time– my inlayer is my bff right now.

    I’m so sad the weekend is gone. I felt like I was pinging around the whole time. Is that really one of Scientology’s beliefs? I need to research it. I’m always so curious when I hear about some weird Scientology thing, and then I never bother to look up for myself.

  • Reply Julia @ Grace Makes New May 4, 2015 at 11:06 am

    Oh no, so sorry you’re sick! Hope you feel better soon! I’ve never looked that much into Scientology but what I have heard about it is crazy! I totally suck at Mario Kart, but it’s fun anyway!

  • Reply M @ The Sequin Notebook May 4, 2015 at 11:12 am

    Oh no! I hate when you can feel sickness approaching – those early symptoms are almost worse than the actual cold because you know what’s coming! Glad you were able to still enjoy the weekend, though! I love chicken sausage too so I’ll definitely be checking out that recipe. Hope you’re feeling a little better and don’t get hit too hard with being sick! xoxo

    Hope you feel better soon *hugs* I hate waking up to that feeling. Zero fun 🙁

    something nasty is going around. last week my husband was under the weather with a cold and as he was feeling better, something else hit him and he was out of commission for FOUR DAYS. i haven’t seen him that sick in a while. then kayla got something similar and when i started to get a scratchy throat, i ate oil of oregano, manuka honey, lemon juice and tons of vitamins all the live long day to avoid it.

    i hope you feel better!

  • Reply Ashley May 4, 2015 at 12:43 pm

    Oh I can’t even imagine what my bushes would look like if I tried to fix them!

  • Reply Pamela @ A Little Glitter May 4, 2015 at 12:45 pm

    Oh man! Being sick is the WORST! I feel like it is worse in the Spring bc you feel like you are missing out on the fun. In the Winter it is so cold that a day in bed isn’t the worst.

    Sick weekends are terrible. You’ll have to make up for it this weekend 🙂

    I want to hire Edward Scissorhands to come and do all kinds of cool shit around my lawn. I wonder if he’s available…

    Hope you’re feeling better. I love the World of Beer here. In fact went there on Friday for happy hour.

  • Reply Tracy May 4, 2015 at 4:08 pm

    We watched Going Clear recently and your opinions of it are pretty spot on. Hope you feel better soon!

    Perfect Sunday lounging in filth! I did that most of the day.

    Feel better.

  • Reply Laura @ Life with Lolo May 4, 2015 at 6:03 pm

    Ugh, feel better friend! I blame allergies for everything. It’s always the allergies! Camping knocked me out with them too – I’m sure my headache was sinus related and not the beer… Sounds like you got a lot accomplished for feeling under the weather though, way to rock it!

    My hubby always makes fun of my ‘trimming’ skills when it comes to our plants. He thinks I get a little wack-happy. I guess he’s kinda right… I just trim until my heart is content.

    So productive!! I love the Homer Simpson gif!

    Yardwork is for the pits! It really is no fun! Hope you feel better soon! No showering on the weekends and staying in is the best!
