Weekend Shenanigans

This is going to be a quick weekend shenanigans post today, as I am off to my nephew’s kindergarten graduation this morning!!! Six year olds in graduation gowns are the cutest thing I ever did see.

My weekend started off with a quick shopping trip to Target for buy one get one 50% off dresses! Did you take advantage of that deal? Also, as of yesterday if you use Cartwheel…the women’s clearance apparel is an additional 20% off. Holla!!!

After cleaning the house Saturday morning, Chris and I were off to Avondale for a late lunch. I wanted to take him to Rowe’s but they were changing from the lunch to dinner menu when we got there and the kitchen was closed…so we went across the street to Melt instead. Yum!!! I ordered the Mac n Cheese Melt. It always hits the spot. That’s right, a grilled cheese with Mac n Cheese inside. What more can you ask for in life?


We then headed to Bargain Hunt where Chris scored an amazing deal on a 27 inch monitor for his new computer he is building. Then we did the adult thing and went to Home Depot for gardening supplies. We were walking back to the car and Chris was like ummmm we just bought a bag of rocks and dirt. Yes, yes we did.

Sunday morning I headed out to the store to go grocery shopping early so that I could get ready for my sister to come over and help me plant my tomatoes and peppers. Hence the rocks and dirt.



I put the empty dog cage to good use in our backyard. I dont know why the previous owners had it and the fenced in yard? We let our dogs roam around free back there and the cage keeps anything else out. Cant wait to make homemade spaghetti sauce and salsa with these tomatoes!!!!

Sunday night finished off with a plate of homemade fettuccine alfredo and Scandal and Grey’s. Anyone else a little disappointed in some of the season finales this year? They just short of fall flat. And I hated the way Good Wife and Grandfathered ended. I am the kind of person who needs closure, you know?


I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! Linking up with Biana.

    Melt is just so good. And that fettucine looks awesome as well — I had two of the most amazing meals I’ve had in a long time this weekend and took zero pictures of it. Yay for kindergarten graduation — that is going to be the cutest thing ever.

    How exciting for your nephew!! Hope you have a great time at the graduation. I still remember mine. In the practice run, we got marshmallows as diploma’s. I think all the children were exited for that reason. But in the real ceremony, we got paper and everyone was like what? where are the marshmallows? hahah

    I have no words because I’m stuck on your grilled MAC and Cheese sandwich! Holy deliciousness! xo, biana –BlovedBoston

    Mac N Cheese in a grilled cheese sandwich, yes please! That sounds the most perfect meal/sandwich ever! It sounds like you had a great weekend filled with lots of adulting, and getting projects done around the house. I heard that The Good Wife finale was pretty terrible, but I’m still interested in watching the show. My fingers are crossed that Nashville ends ok because I need closure too! Have a great time at your nephew’s graduation!

    You have got to be KIDDDDDING me with that sandwich. That looks like a piece of heaven on a plate.
    You are so right – tiny kids in tiny caps & gowns = the cutest thing ever!
    I’m totally checking out Target’s dresses. I love dresses in summer!

    Oh hello delicious food! And as if Target needed to be more fantastic, I just love their deals! I scored 20% off swimwear this weekend with Cartwheel and was super tempted at the BOGO 50% off dresses! Enjoy the adorable graduation and cheers to a fabulous week <3

    There is nothing sweeter than a child’s graduation! And holy moly, that sandwich looks delicious! We bought some landscaping lights this weekend… So boring, yet so necessary! Ha! Hope you’ve had a great Monday!

    I had a grilled cheese with pulled pork this weekend. Your mac & cheese version looks way better.

    Hooray for planting things! I did some of that this past week as well. 🙂 Also, that mac & cheese grilled cheese looks delicious. You are making me hungry, ha!

    Have fun at graduation! Little kids in caps & gowns are so precious!

    That sandwich and fries looks absolutely divine! Yummo! I always get hungry reading your posts!

    As I’ve said before, I’m pretty sure that you and I have similar tastes in food. Almost every picture that you ever post, I’m thinking “mmmmmm that looks delish!”

    I miss Target and fantastic sales like buy one get half off dresses.

  • Reply Mandie May 23, 2016 at 11:54 pm

    I need to have that Mac and Cheese melt pronto! Looks delish!

  • Reply Heather May 24, 2016 at 7:23 am

    That sandwich looks AMAZING!!! I’m trying the herb thing in our kitchen since we have a nice window…so far it’s not awesome, but working. When I went to transfer the plants there was a worm in the dirt so I may have killed one of the plants by whipping it around trying to keep the worm away from me, hahaha! Good luck with your plants!!

    Tyson says he’s going to help me grow my bucket plans this year but I still don’t think they’ll work. I was very disappointed in last year’s attempt and am seriously considering shopping local as an alternative.

    Oooo, all that food looks really good! And how fun to do some planting! I wish we had space for it or I knew anything about it because I love potted anything and everything.

    They hyped up the Scandal finale so much and I feel like nothing exciting happened. I actually liked how mellow the Greys finale was though, finally no major catastrophes for once!!

  • Reply Jackie May 24, 2016 at 6:06 pm

    Grilled mac and cheese sandwiches are sooooooo tasty.

  • Reply kristen May 26, 2016 at 1:41 pm
