weekend shenanigans

Weekend Shenanigans – The One Where We Painted

This weekend I….

Got creeped out after downloading iOS 10 to my phone. When it finally finished installing and came back on, it told me that my car was parked close to my office. Ummm how do you know that is my office??? #creeperstatus


Celebrated National Guacamole Day the only way I knew how, guac at Babalu! I also finally tried their burger which also had guac on it. This burger was delicious!



Made a ton of football party food, but only got a picture of the salami cream cheese roll up that I did. What isn’t pictured? Bourbon Maple Kielbasa, seven layer dip with tortilla chips, french onion dip with potato chips, and cake batter dip with Nilla Wafers. Do you see a dip theme? I have a dip problem, ok.


Laura was the bestest friend that there ever was on Saturday and came over to help me paint the nursery. Her husband and baby boo hung out with the boys and watched football while we slaved away on the two coats of gray paint that now cover the nursery walls. Note to pregnant women, paint the nursery earlier on in your pregnancy than I did. Trying to bend over or sit on the floor and then get back up proves to be a difficult task when your stomach is the size of a truck. Thanks to Laura for doing all the climbing and tedious brush work! The roller was work out enough for me.


I watched Alabama pull off a win over Ole Miss. Finally!ย And the Steelers also won this weekend, so yay!!!! (Sorry, Erin.)


And after all that hard work painting and rooting on Alabama, Chris tells me Saturday night that he doesn’t like the paint color because it looks blue not gray. MEN!!! I sure am glad that Laura and I patted ourselves on the back when we were done. The color is gray by the way…

Sunday was meal planning, grocery shopping in the pouring down rain and food prepping for the week. We also had baked pork chops for dinner.The rest of the weekend looked a lot like this….


I am super excited that Big Bang Theory comes back on tonight!!! Something to look forward to on a Monday, right? I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We are down to two weeks left in September, so let’s make the most of them!

Linking up with Biana.

    I actually love the new update – it feels like a completely new phone! Men can’t see colors as well as women – proven fact right?! Hope you have a great start to the week! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    I could LIIIIIVE off dips!
    I’m not a Big Bang watcher but I’m excited for fall TV in general!

    I got really creeped out when my phone told me how long it’d take me to get to work one day! It just popped up and I was like, um, how did you know?! All the food looks amazing and I’m so glad they pulled out the win! We’re having a tailgate party at work Friday and I’ve been struggling with snack ideas! Can’t wait to see the nursery! Jason said the same thing when we painted our living room last year – too bad, dude! Haha!

  • Reply Marie September 19, 2016 at 9:48 am

    I have yet to do the update on my phone. I’m afraid once I do it, my phone is gonna go crazy. Great job on painting! I’m sure the nursery looks great. Oh men, you can’t live with them and you can’t live without them. haha. Men and women never see colors the same ,that is a proven fact. So..you are right! haha

    What? He doesn’t like the paint color? Oh my the shades of grey, LOL! Look at all the football party food that looks scrumptious! oh sweet Mac, your pictures make my Monday morning!

    How did I not know about guacamole day?? I love guacamole! Salami & cream cheese is one of the best things ever. Know what’s even better? Putting a pickle in the middle…if you like pickles anyway lol.

  • Reply StephTheBookworm September 19, 2016 at 11:00 am

    Oh no, how did I miss Guacamole Day? I love guacamole!

    I have a dip problem too. I’m known for always bringing them to every party. Our housewarming party was dip themed and everyone brought a dip. ๐Ÿ˜› Mmm!

    Gray is a nice nursery color! We did Caleb’s in gray too.

  • Reply Mattie @ Northwest Native September 19, 2016 at 11:01 am

    I’m coming over next time you make football snacks. Dip is my love language. Haha! Also I’m kicking myself for missing national guac day!

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista September 19, 2016 at 11:04 am

    So much amazingness in this post – guacamole day, painting the nursery, and the return of Sheldon and company! My husband said the same thing after the family room was finished being painted last week about the gray which was supposed to be “greige” looking too blue. Ugh men! Cheers to a fabulous week gurlie <3

  • Reply Rebecca Jo September 19, 2016 at 11:16 am

    I have never seen Big Bang Theory… oops.
    It freaks me out some of the info that is known by my phone or random apps. All the info is out there. Scary stuff.

  • Reply kristen September 19, 2016 at 12:08 pm

    i’m so mad i missed National Guacamole Day! how rude. a burger with guac on it?! holy yum!
    i can’t believe the guys watched footy while you guys painted. what the heck!
    i hate our master bedroom – we bought it grey and it is 100% blue on our walls. KC used to work in paint at Lowe’s and he said it’s like the #1 complaint, because grey has blue in it. and i’m like, i don’t care, our bedroom looks like a bloody nursery for a boy. it is still blue though, because he loves it. rage.

    Yumm that food looks so good and a huge pat on the back to you and your friend for conquering the nursery! Your man is lucky he got the off the hook because I wasn’t lifting a finger when it came to painting for the boys lol. We did gray with both of our boys and accented it with Navy for one and Orange for the other. I always said if it was a girl I would have done Gray and Eggplant. I can’t wait to see how yours turns out. Beautifully Candid

    I had no clue it was National Guacamole Day, but glad to know I celebrated anyway!! Yay for getting your friend to help you paint the nursery! Hope your week ahead treats you well!

  • Reply Cara September 19, 2016 at 2:28 pm

    So sweet of your friend to help you paint the nursery! That’s a hard job especially when you’re pregnant. I literally love football season the most for the food, not gonna lie haha.

  • Reply Amanda Elizabeth - Meet at the Barre September 19, 2016 at 2:38 pm

    I can’t even imagine what will happen the day I have to paint with Mark…….I thought of you with that game! Happy to see they pulled it out!

  • Reply Laura September 19, 2016 at 2:57 pm

    It’s gray dammit. And that guac had magical guac powers on Friday — she made it so goooood – I’m going to request her every time we go there now. All of that football food was amazing — thank you for putting all the work into making it for us!!

  • Reply Jackie September 19, 2016 at 3:06 pm

    LOL. I have an android and every morning when I wake up Google Maps will have on my phone a notification on how long it will take me to get to work. Also when it gets close to the end of my work day, Google will send a notification on how long it will take me to get home. BUT it’s never told me where my car is, even though my Ford Sync is linked to my phone. So odd that apple does that.

  • Reply Audrey September 19, 2016 at 3:43 pm

    I painted A LOT of the rooms in our house and my husband absolutely hates the green color in the living room. I think it’s so relaxing and he thinks it’s baby poop. Hahaha. I told him if he wants it another color he A) needs to get my ‘ok’ on the new color and B) can paint it by himself. Ha!

  • Reply Tania // Run to Radiance September 19, 2016 at 3:47 pm

    Wait…how does the phone know where your car is?!? that is creepy…I haven’t updated yet. #scared
    And boo HOW did I miss national guacamole day!? ๐Ÿ™

  • Reply Emelia September 19, 2016 at 6:35 pm

    I’m not loving iOS 10, blah. WAIT–how did I not know you are a Steelers fan?! Or did I know and forget…knowing me, I forgot #oldlady. YES- it was a great game! I love dips on football sundays too, I am obsessed.

  • Reply Joey September 19, 2016 at 6:47 pm

    Oh man it’s been way too long since I’ve had a baked pork chop. That sounds so good right now!

  • Reply Robin September 19, 2016 at 7:38 pm

    Have you posted the recipe for cake batter dip before? If not, I would like to see it.

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis September 19, 2016 at 8:44 pm

    Wish I knew about National Guac day because I would have definitely joined in. lol I love the color gray for bedrooms. The entire interior of our new house is painted in gray which is something I’ve been wanting for years. Now that your nursery has a neutral color you can add some girly touches which will be so cute!

  • Reply Kaitlyn September 19, 2016 at 8:49 pm

    Super Bang is so funny, love that show! Awe, how dare he question the paint color after all y’alls hard work lol. I’m sure it turned out fabulous! That Alabama game was crazy. I need you to post a tutorial with all your football snack goodies!

  • Reply Amy Getz September 19, 2016 at 9:47 pm

    Woot – nursery done – are you so happy!?!?! Love the color gray – it’s such a fabulous neutral and goes awesome with pink!!! Tell Chris to shut it – ha! iOS 10 is crazy . . . and sort of confusing. The messages and how email looks is enough to throw me for a loop!!! You have a “dip problem” – made me giggle. I love appetizers and dips – I wish all my meals could be a mini bite grazing session!! Yum! Mac looks tuckered . . . just like how you felt after painting, I’m sure! And I LOVE Big Bang . . . so freaking funny! My kids watch it now (since they all know what sex is) and it cracks me up to watch them crack up!

  • Reply texerinsydney September 20, 2016 at 3:03 am

    I’d be happy watching football with you … at least the days that A&M isn’t playing BAMA … because I want all those dips and foods!

    It creeped me out as well when my phone started telling me where I was parked and nonsense, and I still don’t really understand it! I’m one of the weird ones that LOVE to paint. It’s very relaxing for me. Probably less so if I were pregnant and trying to work around that! – Dorrie @ Rt 1 US 1

  • Reply mandie September 20, 2016 at 10:36 am

    I have to kinda cheer for Alabama this year, which kinda hurts my soul. Tee hee! I have them in a “league” that I do with my grandfather & uncle – we just pick two teams from NFL & College & whoever has the most wins at the end of the season is the winner. Nothing too in-depth but Alabama wins a lot so couldn’t resist. Ha!

  • Reply Jess September 21, 2016 at 10:40 am

    I downloaded ios10, too, but I didn’t get any creepy messages. Your phone is a stalker. Yay nursery painting! I am with you on the getting off the floor part! I always do that to myself – get on the floor and then realize I have to get back up again. Belly is so heavy!
