Weekend Shenanigans

Why, hello there. This weekend just sort of came and went and I am standing here like, how in the world is it Monday morning???

Friday evening, Chris had to meet a friend downtown so after work I had the house to myself for a few hours. In that time, I read a little and cut half of Mac’s fur. Why half? Because Mac has zero patience to be bothered by fixing his homeless old man look he has going on. After fighting with him for an hour and cutting enough fur to create two more Mac’s…we were both over it! He doesn’t know this, but we have another cutting session later this week. He’s a mess.

Saturday morning I got up and cut the front and side yard. I was outside for two hours with a temperature of 86 degrees and the bright hot sun. (All before 11am) If that isn’t a cardio work out, I really don’t know what is??? It was time to have some fun after that, so we headed out towards The Summit. We stopped by Belk so I could pick up some face wash and toner, then we decided on Chuy’s for lunch. My one cheat meal for the week. We sat out on their patio and soaked in the beautiful views. I never tire of this view.

Afterwards, we were on a quest to find limited edition Amiibo’s (fail) and we also stopped by Zone 1 in Chelsea. On our way back home, we passed a thrift store in Inverness and decided to stop. Their prices were a little high for a thrift store, but I did manage to score two glasses for my collection!!!

Yesterday consisted of meal planning, grocery shopping, food prepping and lots and lots of Chicago Fire and Chicago PD. We actually are completely caught up on both shows now and have no clue what to do with out lives. Literally. It was really depressing. What shows are you checking out this summer? Let me know…I need to find something else to obsess over!

This week went from having nothing to do, to lots of stuff to do after work a few lunch plans so it is going to be a busy one! I hope that everyone has a fabulous week! I am linking up with Biana this morning.

    Trust me, I know how depressing it is when your TV marathons end. It’s like, what now? The view is spectacular and with the thrift stores, it’s like, what’s wrong here, look up the word “thrift” in the dictionary people! Lol. Hope your week is off to a great start!!!

    I’m pretty sure we NEED a picture of Mac with his half-finished hair cut. I didn’t do my grocery shopping yet. I would probably just skip it and force everyone to survive on cabinet scrapings (but seriously, if the cabinets are full we cannot be “out of food”), but I need my smoothies. I wish I was more on the ball with that and meal planning, like some of you ladies I see online!

    That view is absolutely beautiful! Our DVR is empty right now! We started hitting up some series on Netflix to keep ourselves entertained πŸ™‚

    I’m so glad Lola’s type of fur will never need trimming because I wouldn’t trust myself with that. I love Chuy’s so perfect cheat meal and that view is gorgeous! Sounds like a nice weekend!

    i just finished friday night lights and now my life has no meaning. i’m also looking for shows to watch and i might start the wire (i ditched it after season 2). hannibal started again but i’m waiting for more episodes to air so i can watch a bunch at once.

    I’m at a loss right now for tv, too! However, for 30 minute sitcoms, definitely check out Your Family or Mine on TBS. Freaking hilarious. Just try to watch it on the app, or maybe On Demand, because there’s a lot of cursing that I’m sure isn’t on the cable version!

    Haha Hurley is pretty good about getting his hair cut except for his paws, he hates that! He looks like a mop right now, we really need to cut it! Cute thrift store finds, love those!!

    What a view!! The petunia pig glass is too cute!! Seriously there is nothing on TV this summer I am having the same problem.

    You might like White Collar, if you haven’t already seen it. I think all the seasons are on Netflix. I’m excited for Denis Leary’s new show, the next season of Hell on Wheels, and OITNB. And I have been enjoying Wayward Pines.

    Sounds like you had a great weekend!

  • Reply Erin LFF June 8, 2015 at 2:31 pm

    Ohhhh I love Chuy’s! I was introduced to it last summer but haven’t been back in months! Time for that to change- I’m calling for our next date night to be there πŸ™‚ Love those glasses you found- so fun!!

    What a fabulous lunch view!

    Ugh the dog hair, anything to do with dog hair, is not my favorite thing.

    Our Saint is a Chihuahua, but surprisingly strong when she doesn’t want to be brushed or bathed. It’s like wrestling with a squirrel covered in oil.

    OMGGGG I used to have that Petunia Pig glass at my grandparents house when I was younger! Aww totally miss that cup now! And I agree with you, how on earth is it already Monday? Weekends are not nearly long enough!

  • Reply Darcy June 8, 2015 at 5:24 pm

    How gorgeous is that view! Love the glasses you got!

  • Reply Lindsay Latimer June 8, 2015 at 10:31 pm

    What a gorgeous view! How’s the meal planning going? I am stuck in a rut of eating the same things for breakfast and lunch every day! Ugh. We need new recommendations of shows, too! We did just start Cheers from the beginning… no complaints here. I think we’re going to start The Wire, too. Thank God for Netflix and HBO Go!
