Weekend Shenanigans

Can you believe this is the last Monday of January?! I feel like this was both the longest and shortest month ever. How it could be both, I don’t know?! I sat down to write this post and I was like…what did I even do this weekend?

Friday it started to snow after lunch! Snow is a rare thing down here in the deep south. And now everyone is terrified that it is going to be worse than they predict because of Snowpocalypse 2014. To that, I say:

North vs South

Oh, snap! Hahaha do people still say snap? I do.

Anyways, I decided to work from home that afternoon since I live about 30 minutes north of downtown. What the weather is doing at my office has no real indication of what it could be doing at my house! The drive home was so pretty!

My views while working….


And then it was over and this was all we got….


Barely even a dusting. Booooo. I was sort of depressed Friday evening since we had no snow to play in so we got caught up on Chicago Med and Chicago Fire.

Saturday morning was for cleaning, then we headed over to my SIL house. Chris was helping our BIL with their network my SIL and I ran some errands and did a little shopping! I scored this super awesome item at Kirkland’s during their green tag sale for less than $6!


My SIL got a lot of cute things for her eat in kitchen. Definitely check them out if you haven’t lately! I basically want the whole store!

Sunday I meal planned and grocery shopped while Chris and his dad installed a weather station. We watched the playoff games all afternoon. I am glad that the Patriots didn’t win. I think I hate them more than most NFL teams. And the Panthers pulled off a big win! I loved to hate Cam when he was at Auburn because…well gross it is Auburn. But he is one hell of a quarterback, right??? And watching him give away all the touchdown balls to little kids really makes my heart smile.

One thing I have learned over the last 20 days is how strong my willpower can be during this Whole 30 experience. I made Chris homemade baked ziti yesterday for him to take to lunch this week. I did not taste a single bite. Look at all that cheese!!!!!


Nine more days guys….nine. more. days.

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! If you are up in the northeast and want to send us some of your snow, feel free too. Let’s do this Monday!

Linking up with Biana.

    Wasn’t it so awesome that we actually got snow here in the south? So glad you were home safe and sound because people are nuts when it happens! And 9 more days . . . one more weekend! You got this!!

    Seeing as you all aren’t use to snow, I can see how even a dusting could disrupt things. We got about 5 inches this weekend which is like nothing especially after last year. The baked ziti looks so good! Happy Monday.

    You are getting so close to being finished! We definitely didn’t get hit as bad with snow as they predicted ,and I must say it was little depressing. There’s something kind of exciting about being snowed in for a couple of days, or maybe I’m weird and it’s just me-haha.

  • Reply Katie January 25, 2016 at 9:59 am

    Nine more days, you can do it!! And please take some of our snow. We have yet to be plowed out yet…working from home and getting a little cabin fever! Sounds like another productive weekend for you.

    I love Kirklands! And I am so glad the Patriots lost too, I really don’t like them!

  • Reply Laura January 25, 2016 at 10:34 am

    PLEASE LET THESE 9 DAYS GO BY SO FAST — I want to eat all of that baked ziti. And hooray for Cam!!! I’m so excited to get to see him play in the Super Bowl!!!

    I made the hubs some brownies last night – DARK CHOCOLATE BROWNIES – & didnt take one bite. I was proud of myself too.

    LOVE that XO decoration – so adorable!!! Even cuter when its a bargain!

    OMG. Stop it. I would have motoboated that cheese! Hahahahaha!

    yessss! see, isn’t it amazing to know what you can do? you have been so strong, girl.. KEEP IT UP!!

  • Reply Joy January 25, 2016 at 12:12 pm

    Yeah, the “snow event” was a bit disappointing to say the least. But, it’s still winter so we can have hope, right?! I have no will power and would have dived right into to it!!!

  • Reply Carly January 25, 2016 at 12:24 pm

    I still totally say “oh snap”. It’s a classic. And I love Cam, he’s the best.

  • Reply Amy January 25, 2016 at 12:43 pm

    You go girl, we got this. Baked ziti was really a big challenge, that would have been tough for anyone. We got at least an inch here and it was really pretty. pretty much gone by Sunday but nice for a minute. Go Bronco’s!!!!

  • Reply Christina January 25, 2016 at 12:53 pm

    If you wanted more snow, I could mail you some! We have over 20 inches here in PA! Have a wonderful week!!

    I laughed my ass off at the BCS Championship thing! SO TRUE! Even though Kentucky never wins, we are part of the SEC… Ha! I am so with you on the Patriots. Hate them! Look at your willpower, lady! You can do this!

  • Reply Dani January 25, 2016 at 1:06 pm

    I love that decoration, and right in time for Valentine’s Day too, without being overtly festive! Sorry you didn’t get more snow! Normally I’m not a huge fan, but I can deal with one major storm. We’re definitely equipped to handle it in the Northeast!

    You have some crazy willpower woman. I wouldn’t be able to resist that baked ziti- it looks delicious! But 9 more days- you can DO IT!

  • Reply Mattie January 25, 2016 at 1:13 pm

    You seriously have AMAZING willpower.

    And while I really don’t follow college football at all I can say DITTO to the stop hating on how we handle snow and ice in the PNW too!!

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders January 25, 2016 at 1:21 pm

    Seriously just busted out laughing with that not hating on Southerners for not knowing how to deal with snow because they wouldn’t know how to deal with a championship! They also don’t know how to deal with hurricanes either, so double oh snap! And you should be so proud of yourself for all of your will power during your Whole30 challenge! I would’ve dug right into all of that cheese-y goodness for sure! Glad you had a fantastic weekend!

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista January 25, 2016 at 1:33 pm

    That ziti looks amazing, your willpower is amazing. Total rockstar! Loving that XO decoration, awesome find for such a great price! Cheers to a fabulous week gurlie <3

  • Reply Helen January 25, 2016 at 3:40 pm

    WOW! Your will power is amazing! I would have eaten that whole thing! It’s not our fault we can’t handle snow! Happy Monday! Have a great week!

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis January 25, 2016 at 5:26 pm

    The snow is so pretty! What was the temperature when it started to snow? Keep up the good work with the whole 30 program! Having willpower is definitely needed/

  • Reply Tracy January 25, 2016 at 7:18 pm

    Aw your snow dusting is so cute! I wish that’s all we had gotten. Snow is fun for like 5 minutes and then I’m ready for it to all go away so we can all get on with regularly scheduled life.
    Woo keep up the great Whole30 work!

  • Reply Amanda January 25, 2016 at 10:26 pm

    People SHOULD still say “snap.” Let’s bring that shit back!
    Major props for not tasting the ziti!!!!!!! I wouldn’t have been able to do that. lol
