Weekend Shenanigans – THe Long One

Even though I am not having to go to the office right now, it is still nice to have an extra day to not worry about work. And worry, I didn’t. Mainly because the time I did set aside to catch up on some stuff this weekend, our system was down for maintenance and I was like…well there is my sign to take a break too!

This weekend was an exciting one, because we ordered take out food for the first time during quarantine! We loved it so much we did it twice in one day! We had burgers from a nearby BBQ joint for lunch, and our favorite Mexican for dinner. Zoe was beside herself and said that it was delicious a million times. Delicious is her new favorite word. Everything is delicious. I also made a keto friendly flatbread pizza this weekend.

And I may or may not have polished off this delicious bottle of moonshine. Chris and I took turns playing songs and enjoying an adult beverage Friday evening after Zoe went to bed. Definitely one of our favorite things to do to unwind. It was wonderful.

We also went for two car rides around town. Zoe was so excited, she passed out on the second one. We really lowered the bar for standard of fun, haven’t we? We all get dressed and I do my makeup for the car rides. Exciting stuff! Speaking of exciting, look how long Zoe’s hair is getting!!!

She has been living her princess costumes all day every day. Whatever keeps them happy! Her pool has a hole or leak or something, and I tried to order a replacement but had a hard time tracking one down like we wanted, so I ordered her this water slide instead. It comes with water balloons that I plan to whip out next weekend. She had SO much fun on this and spent two hours with it.

We also spent a lot of time out on our deck. I cannot express how thankful I am for all of this outdoor space. Especially the deck with the covered area and fan, because it is already hot and humid AF here.

I got some organizing and purging done. Cleaned out the closet in my office, and trying to decide what I want to do with all the space in there. We have a lot of craft supplies and such and I feel like I could get a shelving unit in there and really get it all organized and utilize the space better! I also shifted things around in our upstairs linen closet, and got some stuff up in the attic. I still really want to paint our dining room. The paint job in there was done really well, but I hate the color. When we moved in, I decided I was going to wait and see if it grew on me, but it has done the opposite. I hate it even more now. Decisions decisions.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I know I really enjoyed the downtime. I have our grocery order placed this morning, a list of things for work and around the house I want to do this week…and ready to tackle it all!

      I use the high fiber wraps I texted a picture of and just put pizza sauce, cheese and pepperoni. Bake at 425 degrees for about 9 minutes. Perfection every time! Definitely cant wait to lunch with you guys too!

    You know Zoe is never going to NOT want to wear Princess outfits now, right? I love it!!!
    I’m sure pools are hard to find right now. It’s going to be the biggest entertainment in most homes now.

      Yeah I am not sure how we are ever going to get Zoe dressed in real clothes again.

    Sounds like a perfectly relaxing weekend!! I think it’s amazing that our bar for fun has been lowered – it’s actually really nice to not have to be anywhere or do anything!

      I agree, it is nice having the bar lowered!!

    I love the waterslide. My girls want one! One of my daughters love saying that is disgusting. The food looks amazing!

      Zoe is having so much fun on the water slide! You definitely need to scoop one up. They have single and double ones, so you could get a double so both girls could go down at the same time.

    What color is your dining room now? Our living room/kitchen was yellow at one point in one house and I couldn’t paint it fast enough.

    Wells is still happy with just the water table…maybe we’ll move onto a small pool or slide next year.

      It is a burgundy color. We have a chair rail and the bottom half is white. I plan to leave the white and maybe do a medium/deep blue/grayish color to match our chairs. We got our dining room set from Chris’s grandmother and the chairs have this gorgeous floral print on them that would be complimented well with a blue tone. The rest of our house is mostly shades of gray, cool and calming. The burgundy doesn’t match anything and I hate red and yellow walls. Our laundry room and guest bath are both a mustard/gold yellow tone and I hate them too. But nothing is as bad as this dining room!

    Glad you got some food this weekend! I know cooking non-stop is a lot. I’m happy you guys have an outside space you can utilize and enjoy now!

      Yeah we did! And now my food is sad again. Haha!

    Zoe’s princess dresses always make me so happy and the slip and slide– such a memory from my childhood. Ahh takeout- it all sounds so good, I think we’re going to end up caving and ordering some soon too.

      I am jealous of Zoe’s princess wardrobe. She has quite the collection and none of them fit me! Ha! Zoe doesn’t understand how the slip and slide works, but that doesn’t stop her from having fun. We used a delivery service for our food delivery, so it was completely contactless. I haven’t worked up the nerve to go somewhere to do a pick up yet. So thankful for all the delivery services that our city offers because we didn’t have this where we lived before!

    I love that Zoe’s new word is “delicious.” And yum, all of that food looks fantastic. Your porch looks amazing too – sorry it’s so freaking hot already, but yay for a nice area to hang out! Love Zoe’s slide too. Looks like she loved it too.
