Weekending Highlights

Somehow it's not only Monday but it's the last week of September. How quickly is time flying???
Ok enough of that--let's chat about the highlights from the weekend!
My weekend highlights included:

~Going home on Friday afternoon to relax and attempt to recover from the cold. Ending up sleeping for 2 hours on the couch. Guess I needed it.

~MG took me out to Sweet Water Tavern for dinner since neither of us felt like cooking. I gorged on a bacon cheeseburger with their "wicked" sauce (it's wickedly delicious!)
~a quiet night in, finished Ballers season 2, and more sleeping on the couch ensued while watching Dateline

~Woke up feeling about 80% which is HUGE. I never feel this good this quickly after coming down with a cold. Guess that sleep paid off. And saline spray!! I highly recommend that stuff for any future cold suffering (do it like 8 times a day when your cold first comes on)!

~Early morning trip to Costco where they had the world's largest teddy bear. Stocked up on more pirate's booty, pesto and quinoa. Plus we got ourselves a new, fancy stainless steal motion sensor trash can for the kitchen (only $40!)
(teddy looks a little drunk)
~Did a quick run to Target and picked up this super comfy Gilligan O'Malley lounge shirt (omg it's so soft) for $19 and then found out once we got home that the check out guy didn't scan it right so we got it for free. #happyaccident

~Went to Tyson's mall to return a shirt to Loft and get some money back on the shirt I wanted to keep, but went on sale for 40% off (got $29 bucks back on that one) and MG found two new pairs of shoes for himself
Mixed Media Top  $35                                    Tie Neck Shell $23.99
~Had lunch at Brio: lobster bisque for two (I swear I could eat a vat of that stuff!), plus a margarita pizza to split (super yum!)
~Went for a 3 mile walk with MG on a trail near our house

~Had another pretty quiet night in which was perfect for my cold recovery, and after the crazy busy weekend we had last weekend. Facetimed with my one SIL and BIL, too!

~Started a new Diane Chamberlain book (she's definitely a new favorite author of mine!)

~Had a quick breakfast, ran to the grocery store to pick up some things I didn't get the day before, then met up with my friend MK for a long walk with temps that started to feel like Fall weather and then grabbed lunch together at Panera (hello broccoli cheddar soup in a bread bowl!)

~Made a cheesy chicken, broccoli and rice casserole to take to my friend who is going through chemo (dropping it off today)--we have a meal delivery sign up going on for her so she doesn't have to worry about cooking. Hopefully the casserole is a success!

~My other SIL and BIL were in town with our oldest niece for a recruiting session at Catholic University so I got to spend some time with them and then went out for a steak dinner that night
~Got in some good family time before heading off to bed to rest up for another work week (and the second part of her recruiting session this morning).

All in all, it was a restful weekend which was much needed to get over the hump of that cold. Hoping yours was fun and restful too!

Also, I owe you an email of our fav spots-sorry:/ we should plan a blogger meet up when I'm up for a few days working. Glad you had a good weekend! I need a rest weekend badly.

  10. Glad you're feeling better! That sweatshirt from target looks so cozy! I was cracking up when we saw that same teddy at Costco - it just seems unnecessary for any child to have that, lol.

  14. Ugh our house is battling a cold too, I hate going back to school for that reason. I haven't seen the big teddybear at Costco yet, but I really want too. I am so addicted to Ballers, I love the Rock!

  15. Yessss to Panera broccoli cheddar soup!! I've never had it in a bread bowl because I always tend to get a salad with it, but I will try that once it gets a little colder here... if it ever does. Ugh. So glad that you're feeling better, my friend! Sounds like all the sleep paid off!

  16. Glad you're feeling better! It's funny you have that picture of the teddy bear.. I actually own one of those. My MIL bought it for my oldest when he was 4 months old. Needless to say it's been used soo much (i.e. takes up way too much space in our garage)! ;)

  17. Sorry to hear you aren't feeling so great but you still managed to fit a ton in this weekend for sure!

  18. Sorry about the cold, they are never fun., hope you make a full recovery fast! Despite that looks like a great fun filled weekend. Ugh gimme that burger!

  19. Sorry you weren't feeling the best but sometimes low key weekends to relax are the best! It looks like you guys still managed to get some good things done and eat some delicious meals! Hope you continue to feel better!

  20. That food looks amazing!!! Yum!

  21. Yay, scoring the shirt for free! I used to work at Target. Most of their team members feel under-appreciated and don't mind if you get a free or reduced-price item here and there. It was so nice of you to do that for your friend. I hope she will heal. And that your cold goes away completely soon. My go-to remedy is Ramen noodles.

  22. Spending time with the family is just the best! We spent Sunday with the family at the apple orchard! What a great happy accident at Target! Haha

  23. Costco, ATL, and bacon cheeseburgers. Sounds like perfection to me!

  27. I'm so jealous, you always find the best deals at Loft!! I had a cold this weekend too!! My sinuses finally cleared up on Sunday but it was awful. Not being able to breath is the worst.

    I have been slacking it big time in the reading blogs department. I feel like I have no idea what's going in my blogger friends lives and I need to fix that.

    Oh and I need that lobster bisque in front of me like now. I think it's one of my all time favorite foods to be honest! K bye!
