Weekend Shenanigans – The One That Was Productive

You guys, I wasted no time getting stuff done this weekend. I woke up feeling super accomplished and ready to take on the week ahead. A great feeling, actually!

Friday – When I got home Friday evening, I got a load of laundry done and rearranged/re-purposed some stuff in our bedroom, living room and master bathroom.

Shelf in bedroom – The flower on a tree bark was what held our wedding rings, the middle is my bridal bouquet…


Chris’s nightstand


My nightstand – Fun fact – that picture is the first one we ever took together. That is why it is on both sides, it was the picture we each had on our nightstands when I lived in Atlanta and we only saw each other on weekends.


I rewarded my efforts but watching Elf!



Saturday – I woke up and got right to cleaning the house. I cleaned everything, then started organizing the kitchen pantry. Then I organized our spice cabinet. I couldn’t be stopped..I started organizing and re-arranging other cabinets too!

All of the mixing and serving bowls.

All of the spices, oils, vinegar, sauces in one place! IMG_4120.JPG

After all that organizing, I got outside and cut the back yard. That should be it for the year as far as cutting the grass goes! We have this weird berry bush thing that is growing right outside our fence that we need to take care of, but other than that…yard work for the year is done! Added bonus, the tree in our back yard has pretty much lost all of it’s leaves. I cut the grass on a lower setting…and it chopped up all the leaves too so we don’t even have to rake in the back yard!

Saturday afternoon we headed to Chris’s parents house to watch some football! Love that the Dawgs killed Kentucky! The Auburn vs Texas A & M game was quite interesting to watch. It is hard to believe that A & M couldn’t get a score on the board with us, yet they beat Auburn. My favorite status I saw after the game, “Auburn just got Auburned.” No statement could be truer.

Our game against LSU had me yelling at the TV several times. Missing a 27 yard field goal is not cool. The last five minutes of the game were absolutely amazing and I couldn’t believe that we tied it up and won the game in overtime! We were all standing up those last few minutes and during over time. It was amazing! It might now have been a pretty win, but it was a win damnit! And we beat our 6 point spread at 20 to 13 🙂


Sunday I woke up, made myself a gingerbread latte and read a good chunk of my book. It was quite relaxing.

IMG_4137.JPGWe caught up on all of our shows, I meal planned and went grocery shopping. That evening I made flat bread pizzas. I put fresh pineapple on half of mine. Delicious!

Today is our two year anniversary! I can’t believe it has been two years already. Happy Anniversary, Chris!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Let’s do this, Monday!

    Look at you being so productive! I feel completely unrested after this weekend as we had to pack everything up for our move next Saturday. Hopefully, my new kitchen ends up looking as organized as yours!

    Congrats on such a productive weekend! That was my intention & yet it didn’t happen at all.

    So…what kind of deal would we need to strike up for you to come organize MY kitchen? If you looked in any of the cabinets, I’m sure you’d think I was related to Sanford & Sons. Honestly–that weekend sounds absolutely freaking blissful to me. Perfect. And HAPPY ANNIVERSARY love birds!

    now that’s what i call a productive weekend! i’m totally going to steal your idea of using a bin to organize my pot lids because i was going to use towel hangers drilled into my cabinet doors but the husband wasn’t thrilled about putting holes into the wood. what a party-pooper!

    Aww, Happy Anniversary!!

    Wow, I am super impressed with your productivity this weekend!! Everything looks so pretty and organized!

    I only caught the last little bit of the Bama/LSU game because the Gators were on at the same time, but what I saw was intense! That’s always a crazy game! Congrats on the win!

    That’s hilarious about the old phones, I had a pink Razr too! I loved that phone!

    You were crazy productive! That’s motivating. I got up at 7 with the dogs on Saturday and cleaned bathrooms, so I felt pretty happy about that.

    Happy (belated) Anniversary! And kudos for all that weekend productivity. I actually got a lot done last night, (and thoroughly documented for a future blog post, of course. :P) but I still need to tackle the kitchen.

  • Reply Kelli November 11, 2014 at 6:45 pm

    I organized all the lower kitchen cabinets and cleaned out my closet/dresser. I feel like I should focus on one room but at least something is getting done.

  • Reply Nadine November 11, 2014 at 7:46 pm
