Weekend Shenanigans and TBB Asks- Entertainment

This weekend came and went so fast, we barely got anything done that we set out to do! Friday capped off teacher appreciation week at Zoe’s school. The Heavenly Donut truck was in our town, right next to the daycare….so of course I had to take donuts to her teachers and the directors! And of course I had to get one for myself too. I am pretty sure they threw mine in for free. Shhhh. Their donut of the month is a lavender lemon one and OMG!!!! You guys, this might be the best donut I have ever had. It was so perfect and not too sweet. Plus, how gorgeous is this??? And this was taken hurriedly on the console in my car. No fancy lighting to dress it up. If you are local, go snatch one of these this month while you can. WORTH IT!
Saturday morning I was up early and had a lot of the cleaning done before Zoe got up again. Floors, dusting, guest bath and kitchen all scrubbed down. Zoe and I had a lot of fun playing when she woke up. She is too darn cute! During Zoe’s nap I tackled all the ironing and the master bath. Plus, I did 7 loads of laundry throughout the day. Mission accomplished. When Zoe woke up, we headed to Chris’s parents house to hang out with them for a few hours.
Sunday morning we headed out to the grocery store, and then met Chris’s parents for lunch at our favorite Mexican place. Zoe can tear up some Mexican food and was excited about morning about her taco!
That face you make when you eat tacos…
That afternoon, Zoe and I had some fun outside with bubbles and we took a few short walks. She loves being outside, and the weather was absolutely gorgeous!!! Low 80’s with little humidity and the pretty afternoon sun. Just the way we like it!
Chris took the grill once we got Zoe down for bed and made some tavern burgers. I cooked up some buffalo cauliflower and we got caught up on Chicago Med and Chicago Fire. After that, it was time for bed!
I am also lnking up with Andrea and the TBB ladies to talk about entertainment this month!
1. Comedy or Drama? 
Depends on what time of mood I am in, as I enjoy both.
2. Fiction or Non-Fiction?
3. Movies in Theater or At Home?
Home. I haven’t been to a theater since I lived in Atlanta, so it has been at least 8 years.
4. Musical or Play?
Hmm that is a tough one. There are some Broadway shows that I do want to see, but generally I am not big in to musicals or plays all that much.
5. Which Meal of the day is your favorite to eat out?
Generally lunch. I eat out for lunch once or twice a week with friends, and then sometimes on the weekends Chris and I will go out for lunch or dinner. We never really eat out for breakfast.
6. Favorite Book ever read? 
This is not a fair question. How am I to pick just one??? I cant even pick just one genre. One book that has stuck with me through the years is Tuesdays With Morrie, as cliche as that sounds.My favorite books this year have been The Hating Game, Eligible, The Beau and The Belle and Arrogant Devil.
7. Game Night: Yes or No?
Yes! Haven’t had one in so long, but I love playing games! Both board and video games.
8. Favorite Outside Game to play?
Mini golf
9. Favorite TV Series ever?
Oh that is a tough one. The first one that comes to mind is Hart of Dixie or Friends.
10. Sitcoms growing up or Sitcoms of today?
Growing up. They just don’t make shows like they used to!
11. Miniature Golf or Bowling?
I am equally terrible at both. I suppose I like bowling a little more because it is in a controlled temperature environment. Last time I went mini golfing was at the beach and it was hot AF and the wind was driving me crazy.
12. Favorite Movie Theater Candy?
As I mentioned before, I don’t go to the theater anymore. When I went, I only ever got popcorn and a soda. But, picking out movies at Blockbuster was one of my favorite things to do on a Friday. And I always came home with gummy bears from there.
13. How do you like your popcorn?
I like butter and salt on it. Sometimes if I am trying to be good, I will just squeeze a lime over it and it sort of gives the same texture as buttered popcorn. Always air popped. That microwave shit will give you cancer.
14. 3D movies with the glasses; Yes or No? 
No. I hate 3D glasses. I usually get a headache.
15. Favorite Genre of Books to Read? 
Romantic comedy, cozy mysteries or suspense.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Double dipping and linking up with Biana.

    Zoe feels the same way I do about tacos! That donut sounds so amazing. Friends is also one of my favorites of all time and I agree that shows were better when we were growing up! Guess that’s why they’re bringing them all back!

    I am so inspired by your cleaning and those 7 loads of laundry!! Zoe is so adorable and I love that she loves tacos. We haven’t had a game night in forever either but they are always so much fun! Sierra~Beautifully Candid

    Were just kicking off teacher appreciation week this week, but donuts sounds like a great way to end the week! I’m seriously so impressed with how much you’re able to get done with Zoe naps! I feel like I’m always so tired once the girls take a nap or go to sleep to do anything but relax! And I’m with you, I don’t think that I could pick a favorite book or movie for that matter! There’s just too many!

    That lavender lemon donut though… I need that in my life. Weather has been amazing here too, love being outside before the stifling heat rolls in. I am so doing that link up too! It’s so funny to me that you all don’t go out to breakfast much, I think I could live on breakfast out. Btw… Zoe is just the cutest!!

    Tacos are life! And apparently so is that donut, looks so good! Aw she is too cute, glad you got a lot done this weekend!

  • Reply Kasey Holloway May 7, 2018 at 9:36 pm

    That donut looks heavenly! These questions were so fun! I haven’t watched Hart of Dixie yet but it’s probably next up after I finish Parenthood!

  • Reply Audrey May 7, 2018 at 10:06 pm

    Sounds like a fun, family-filled weekend! Yay for some good weather and some good food!
    I’ve never squeezed a lime over popcorn! That’s so odd!! Haha! But now I want to try it. I can’t believe you haven’t been to a theater in 8 years! Wow! I dislike 3D glasses, too. Terrible headache!

    Our teacher appreciation week started yesterday. That’s so sweet that you brought donuts! I am re-watching Hart of Dixie right now on Netflix lol. Such a cute show. Our answers were all pretty much the same!

  • Reply Laura May 8, 2018 at 10:06 am

    That’s the same face I make when eating tacos. I share you feelings about theaters and seeing movies, but have never tried a lime squeezed over it. That sounds awesome.

  • Reply Carly May 8, 2018 at 11:07 am

    That donut looks sooo good (& pretty)! It sounds like you got so much done around the house on Saturday– it always feels so good when you can catch up on those things! It looks like you and Zoe had so much fun playing- I’m glad the weather finally seems to be enjoyable. I loved Tuesdays With Morrie too and should probably reread it at some point. I just restarted Friends from the beginning again and I sooo miss Hart of Dixie and keep thinking about rewatching that one too!

  • Reply ShootingStarsMag May 8, 2018 at 11:16 am

    Oh, I do love a good cozy mystery. And I miss Blockbuster; it was always such fun going and picking out movies. I found some good ones that way.

    Sign me up for that lavender lemon donut. That is the cutest photo of Zoe eating tacos. I am dying over it.

  • Reply Emelia Lawrence May 8, 2018 at 10:35 pm

    Lavender- Lemon- Donut?!?!?! OMG gimmie-that sounds straight heavenly. Damn girl you earned a donut and more for all you accomplish in one day cleaning and doing laundry- you are my hero. Zoe is always so well dressed- cutest ever!
