weekend shenanigans

Weekend Shenanigans

You guys!!! This is the last full work week of the year! So we can totally take on this Monday, right??? This weekend was full of a little shenanigans and a lot of lazy. Just the way I like it!

Friday when I got home, Chris had his friend J over so I hung out with them some and then finished reading my book. We ordered Chinese food because it is the only thing opened past 8pm in these parts. I am not going to lie, it as delicious but probably one of the last times I will indulge in it. When I make my own version at home, it is way healthier!!!

Saturday morning I got up and got moving on cleaning around the house, then it was parade time!!! Chris’s company has a spot in the Christmas parade every year and we ride on the float. Last year they had a Frozen theme, this year was Dr Seuss. My favorite!!! We had the Grinch, Cindy Lou Who,  Max (the dog), Thing 1 and Thing 2 and The Cat In the Hat. This parade is kind of a big deal and everyone has months of preparation. Chris and his co-workers took home number 1!!!!!


Look at the detail that went in to just the tree on the back of the float!

Christmas Tree Float

I took one for the team and wore a construction hat with a phone that was recording live on periscope. You got some behind the scenes on our float and got to see the crowds as we went through. These guys should be proud, they got lots of thumbs up and clapping for a job well done!


We got waves from Santa as we came through.


We had a lot of fun on the float, but it sure does take a lot out of you!!! We have to be there two hours before the parade begins to get lined up and judged. The parade route is pretty long and by the time we were pulling back in the parking lot after the route….it was starting to get dark! We grabbed some Mexican food at our favorite local place and headed on home.

The Grinch and Family Stone entertained me Saturday night. Along with some hot chocolate! I never tire of this view!!!


Sunday we meal planned, grocery shopped and got caught up on all of our shows. We also watched Home Alone! Gotta get in all of those Christmas movies!!!

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!!! This week I need to finish Christmas shopping and start getting these gifts wrapped. I have not a one wrapped yet. Oops! To be honest, I like to do it all at once and just knock it out!

Linking up with Biana.

    I always thought being in parades was so fun when I was little. Now as an adult, it’s so much work! Lol. But it’s still fun. The float looked great!
    Thanks for reminding me it’s the last full week of work! It does make today a little more manageable! (:

    That float is awesome! We watched Bad Santa last night… I had never seen it and died laughing! So awful! I agree- I could look at my tree forever! I always hate taking it down!

    MFD is in a ton of parades throughout the year and they are a lot of hurry up and wait. Good job on the float/filming!

    That hate with the phone on it – who needs a ProCam with that invention? 🙂

    Congrats for winning first place!! Being in parades is so much fun, but you’re right, it does take a lot out of you because the day is soooo long !!

    Ok you look totally adorable sporting that phone on the hard hat!! The parade looks like so much fun, especially since you were actually on the float! Yay for one last full week of work all year! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    Hahaha, you look so awesome with the hard hat on! And yay for first place! We also watched Home Alone last night — such a classic!

  • Reply Jessi December 14, 2015 at 11:57 am

    Super cool that you got to wear the periscope hat, ha-ha! The only holiday movies on our current must-see list are Elf and Christmas Story 🙂 I’m sure I’ll sneak some others in there!

  • Reply Erin LFF December 14, 2015 at 12:16 pm

    Their float seriously is AWESOME! What a fun parade to get to be a part of every year- too!! Love it 🙂

  • Reply Amy December 14, 2015 at 12:45 pm

    Well that looks like a super fun weekend. Now you have me craving Chinese food… yum. Better get some before I get back on the wagon! It is exciting to know that this is the last full work week of the year!!! Yay for holidays!

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders December 14, 2015 at 12:50 pm

    The parade sounds like so much fun! I love that you were in charge of documenting everything on periscope! You definitely have to get in as many Christmas movies as possible during this time of the year because you won’t have the chance to watch them for another year! We managed to watch a few this weekend too, which makes me so happy since we hadn’t watched any before this weekend! Hooray for it being the last full week of work for the year! I can’t believe that Christmas is NEXT WEEK!

  • Reply Mattie December 14, 2015 at 1:23 pm

    Even if all you did all weekend was watch The Grinch, Family Stone, and Home Alone that would be a perfect weekend! Winning the parade is awesome though! The float seriously looks amazing, I can’t imagine anything topping it!

  • Reply Amanda December 14, 2015 at 2:06 pm

    I love the idea of a Dr. Seuss theme… how fun!
    And I love Jim Carey in The Grinch!

  • Reply Laura @ Life with Lolo December 14, 2015 at 3:08 pm

    The parade sounds like so much fun, and that tree?! Amazing. I love Dr. Seuss! It’s nice you had some down time too, I’m so behind on my Christmas movie watching.

  • Reply Marie December 14, 2015 at 4:35 pm

    That float is awesome!! I love Home Alone, such a good movie.

  • Reply Kerry December 14, 2015 at 8:27 pm

    The float looks awesome. The Family Stone is my fav. Wrapping is the worst!

  • Reply Jasmine@makingrestorations December 14, 2015 at 10:01 pm

    I love the Dr. Seuss theme and everything was tied together so nicely. I need to wrap too, I normally wrap as I go, but I didn’t do that this year. Big mistake! And I agree with you on the Chinese food, some things just taste better ordered out probably bc they put lots of delicious tasting goodies in it that you wouldn’t on your own. It’s ok to indulge every once in a while though

    The parade sounds like so much fun! Congrats to Chris and his team for bringing home the prize! The rest of your weekend sounds perfectly relaxing. I agree, you might as well knock out all the wrapping at once..Hope you had a great Monday!

  • Reply Dorrie @ Rt 1 US 1 December 15, 2015 at 8:45 am

    Ahhhh I all things Grinch! Scott’s rather perturbed at the moment, because I actually have the 30 minute animated version (what I refer to as the “real” one!) DVRed and every night I ask him if he wants to watch it. He always says no, so it’ll stay on there until he caves! The Seuss tree is impressive as well!
