Weekend Recap

Once again my only complaint about the weekend is that it NEVER lasts long enough! It really is not fair {insert temper tantrum here}. I look so forward to our weekends and hate that they are gone in a blink of an eye!

Friday evening we spent feeding our faces and doing absolutely nothing! While we should have made a grocery shopping trip we decided to just be lazy instead! We were lounging on the couch when we saw a Dairy Queen advertisement for their new Confetti Cake Blizzard! Now if you know me, you know I LOVE ice cream and ANYTHING cake flavored, right down to cake flavored vodka {which is scrumptious}. Needless to say, we jumped in the car and headed to our local DQ! My gosh was it super super yummy! I’ve got to stop myself from going to pick one up on my lunch break today! After our DQ stop, the hubby wanted Sonic, so we stopped there to pick up dinner. Needless to say, my blizzard was gone before we put in our order for “real” food. I definitely recommend dessert before dinner! What a treat! {And yes, I realize I am a true blue fatty}.

Saturday the hubby had to coach a game in Richmond so I was home with just the pupster! I ended up cleaning the entire patio, including the siding, scrubbing the furniture, and wiping down the pillows and cushions. It took a decent amount of time but I was so thrilled with my productivity level! I even cleaned out our pots {which contained dried up dead flowers from I don’t even know how long ago} and took a trip to the Garden Center at Wally World to pick out some flowers and potting soil mix! I’ve never seriously planted anything in my life, so here is to hoping I can take care of these and not kill them in a week! Here is a picture of two of the 3 pots {I also bought a pretty pink flowered plant to put in the hanging pot on our front porch}:

Once the hubby got home from his game we went to grab sushi and drinks for dinner! Ohh yummy! We tried a new sushi place this time and while I felt we were cheating on our go-to-fav-sushi place, this may be our new favorite! It’s closer, less expensive, FAST, and ridiculously good! I mean look at this plate! The presentation, with all the plants, is a bit overkill for my tastes, but the actual sushi?! DELICIOUS! After dinner we headed home, hung out on the clean patio while the pup played around in the yard and then headed to bed! In bed by 11:30pm! Who are we?!


Sunday we slept in late and when I say late I mean, 11:30!! We haven’t slept in like that since before we brought Baby Reef home! It was glorious! The hubby lounged around for the day and I took off to go visit with my momma! She so graciously taught me how to work my way around my new sewing machine and I even got to practice at it for a bit! She gave me some spare fabric, showed me her techniques and tricks, and let me have a go at it! She even showed me how to sew on a lace border on the little pillow I was making!! As you can see below I was thoroughly impressed with my work! Momma was super proud too and I think she was pretty excited about teaching me something new! You really are never too old to learn something from your momma!


Once I got home I snuggled with my love bugs and ordered Italian for dinner! YUMMO! Then we headed to bed where Baby Reef enjoyed sleeping with his new pillow and I caught up on the Real Housewives of NJ! I tell you this much, I was extremely exhausted after watching that argument between Melissa and Teresa! Teresa is just draining and literally sucks the brain cells out of my head! Not to mention if she said “Are you kidding me?” one more time, I was going to just turn the dern television off! She really sounds so ridiculous and can’t admit to ANYTHING when she is wrong! It’s incredibly sad how vain and na├»ve the woman is. I really used to like her in the beginning but her actions have been inexcusable these last two seasons. I am definitely over her!


Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend and were as lazy AND productive as I was!!
Have a Happy Monday and I’ll see y'all tomorrow!!



Xoxo,

    1. Sushi virgin?! No worries, my mom is one too! hehe! If you to want to seriously try it, start out with a california roll or a philadelphia roll. They are pretty basic but actually really good! Even if you don't end up liking it at least you tried!! And yes the blizzard is a must!! Hope you had a great weekend as well!! Thank you for stopping by!!
