Weekending: Fooding + Sale

Happy post-Superbowl Monday--hopefully you're not too tired from watching the game! It's always hard to start the week already behind on sleep.

This weekend was a pretty low key one which is nice because we have a couple of travel weekends coming up.
The highlights this weekend included:

~Friday date night to Bonefish Grill where I got my tried and true bang bang shrimp tacos
~Was totally taken back when the table in front of us had a man sitting there who reminded me of my dad. I did a double take when I first saw him, and at one point he looked over and I swear it was a look my dad gave me all the time. And then all of a sudden, I was tearing up at the table. Just another reminder that he's always around.

~Went back to the house since I was (and still am) trying to kick this stupid cold, and watched The Jungle Book. Cooper worked on not barking at every living animal he saw on screen--after the first couple of minutes (and lots of pets), he got the hint
~Saturday morning I woke up to feeling baby feet fluttering on my side--a wake up call I don't ever mind :)

~MG had to work during the morning, so Cooper and I took the opportunity to make friends with the couch and my Kindle--got into a good chunk of my current read while being totally lazy

~that evening I had the craving to make chocolate chip cookies, so after dinner MG and I went to the grocery store and got cookies and ice cream and made the yummiest dessert....preggo dream come true
~While we were at the grocery store, we stopped by Redbox and picked up Central Intelligence and watched that. It was definitely dumb funny, but better than we thought it would be. I just love Kevin Hart.

~Sunday morning we had our morning coffee and watched the hilarious Trump/Spicer skits on SNL from the night before, then headed out to run errands

~Did laundry, I vacuumed and MG mopped the floors, and then we ironed the curtains that came in for baby girl's room and hung them. The color looks a little off here, but we really like it. Hoping it goes ok with the bedding we have picked out
~Spent a lot of time researching child birth classes in the area, and pediatricians. #thisisgettingreal

~MG went to watch the Superbowl with a bunch of friends--I had zero desire (the couple who bailed on our dinner party was hosting), and getting over a cold, I was much happier at home on the couch with my feet up.

I will admit, I only semi paid attention to the game. I loved that the Bushes were the ones to do the coin toss--they were so cute! And I really enjoyed the Hamilton ladies, too. I watched the half time show which I thought was really good--did Lady Gaga actually sing that whole time? I was impressed!

Today marks the end of the second quarter which means it's a teacher workday...which also means my day will be spent doing report cards. Not a bad way to spend the day after the Superbowl, right?

Before I go, I wanted to see if anyone was interested in these bags? One is a Coach bag, used once, and the other is a Vera Bradley purse set (purse, wallet, zipper pouch). If you're interested, comment or email me, otherwise they're going to get donated :)


Hope your week is off to a good start!

  2. I loved the Bushes at the beginning of the game--especially since they both just got out of the hospital! And I really loved Lady Gaga's halftime show! I had the same thought as you....was she really singing the entire time? It sounded/looked like it? Enjoy your workday! I wish we had one of those today--we have an early release Wednesday so that afternoon is our workday.

  3. Ha I have that same coach bag but in beige! I'm obsessed with the curtains you picked out. We just moved and need all new window treatments--let the adventure begin (adulting is so fun, right? haha).

    I'm with you on the gentle reminders about your dad. In those types of moments I'm grateful for the sign. Glad you were able to be reminded that he's always around. <3

Hope you kick that cold soon girl, enjoy your teacher workday! Also just curious as to how much you'd be selling the Vera Bradley set for??

  8. You had a great weekend, girl! I thought that having the elder Bushes there to do the coin toss was pretty much the cutest thing ever. Baby Girl's nursery is coming together so well! Can't wait to see more :)

  10. Super Bowl on the couch sounds great! We had family over but made sure they left around the third quarter so we could finish watching from bed. Those bang bang shrimp tacos look like the best way to start off the weekend and those cookies you made - yes!!

  12. What a nice relaxing weekend! Bonefish is definitely the perfect date night, now you have me wanting to make bang bang chicken (since I don't like shrimp!) and that's crazy about the guy at the other table! Sometimes it's nice to have that little reminder he's always watching over you :) <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  25. Oh my goodness what a surreal siting to experience while at dinner - a rush of sad & happy thoughts at the same time. Just makes you feel that much more close to him with all the subtle reminders. The bang bang shrimp at Bonefish is just the best whether in taco form or the appetizers, I've been addicted for years now! lol
