Weekend Things

Well aside from listening to “Dynamite” a billion times, I’m delighted to report I did more than take pictures of my dog all weekend. We got the nursery about 80% done, ate a lot of take out and watched I’ll Be Gone in the Dark. I’m feeling so happy about it all (except that last part, which has me feeling like I’ll never sleep again 😬). I can’t wait to show you!

Also, both Hannah and Becca had their babies last week and I have so loved getting their updates and seeing pictures of those sweet babies ❤❤❤❤

We’d been craving wings for a while so we got take out from Fire on the Mountain and those fries were on point! Back inside, we started I’ll Be Gone in the Dark. Scary things in general and true crime specifically are NOT my thing but I’d heard this series was good, so we decided to give it a go.

Two episodes later and this little puppy was wiped out! 😂😍

Guys, breakfast is a struggle lately! You know I usually LOVE breakfast but every morning lately I wake up and nothing sounds good! We agonized over what to make and ultimately decided to pick something up from Stowaway. I really miss eating there and I really miss ordering something with poached eggs 😋

I forgot to mention that our rocking chair and ottoman were deliv!ered on Friday and though we’d had this set picked out for MONTHS, it wasn’t until the delivery was scheduled that we thought to measure our super narrow stairway and IT WAS TOO SMALL!!!! We hoped we were maybe wrong or that the chair cushions might squish enough to fit but no. We were in a slight panic but Chad and Lori came over on Saturday and suggested opening up the covering on the bottom of the chair to take the rockers off (I’m definitely not familiar enough with how furniture is put together to have thought of this) and it fit no problem. I cannot even tell you how relieved and happy I felt!!!! Also, it’s so beautiful and comfortable. Andi and I spent a lot of time sitting in it this weekend ❤

Look what else came… our wallpaper! Not going to lie, we definitely thought about backing out on this project many times during the month between when we ordered it and when it came, but then we decided to go for it, so Joey started it up on Saturday. I can’t say I helped physically, but I did keep him company 😋 He got it all up by Saturday night, so it would just need to be trimmed come Sunday. I made us steak fajita bowls for dinner and we hit two more episodes of our show. I’ll tell you what, I could definitely have done without that audio of the Golden State Killer saying “I’m gonna kill you” that they played something like 5 times!!! 😱

Sunday started with yogurt bowls in the backyard. Have I mentioned we’ve had something like seven consecutive 90 degree days?? Combine that with smoky air from wildfires and being outside has not exactly been a joy. We try to keep it to early morning and evenings, but it is still hot!

Afterward, Joey finished up the wallpaper and I LOVE IT!!!! He did such a good job and I’m so grateful. We accidentally broke the second picture frame for the right side, so after this (and delivery from Illegal Pete’s for lunch!) we headed to Michael’s to pick up another and now we just need our Winnie the Pooh prints to come, so we can fill them. The other side of the room needs a few things and then I can unveil that side too 😊

We took the rest of the day easy and just had leftovers, watched Big Brother and finished our show. I SOBBED over Michelle McNamara (or more specifically, her daughter Alice) but I thought this show was really well done and I love how it focused (and ended) on the survivors. Please tell me what you did this weekend!

Weekend Things

Oh my god, the return of the Weekend Things post!  Because real life exciting things actually happened this weekend, not just me laying on the couch because we have nothing to do 😛

My sister graduated from nursing school!!!!  I’m so proud of her ♥  It went by so quickly… for me, a person who didn’t have to do any of the hard work she did 🙂  Her pinning ceremony was cancelled and rescheduled as a Zoom call.  It was my first one and I found it highly entertaining.  The best was when someone didn’t have their microphone muted, so any time they made noise, the camera would jump to them!  Andi was less invested, apparently.

Saturday morning, we had to make ourselves scarce for a few hours because we are renting out our house once we move and we had a whole bunch of showings.  Only slightly freaked me out to think of strangers walking around my home, but masks were required and they weren’t allowed to touch anything.  First, we headed to the Wooden Spoon for breakfast sandwiches!  I forgot my mask, so Joey went up to place our order and I attempted to walk Andi in the neighborhood but he acted like separating from Joey was a death sentence and threw a huge barking fit the entire time, probably waking up every living soul in the vicinity….  After we ate our sandwiches, we took a stroll through our new neighborhood (we even discovered a little cottage bakery!) and I can’t wait to live in it!  We did some packing and grocery pick up during the day, then made this delicious dinner and watched Blow the Man Down, which we both really enjoyed.

Sunday, I woke up to pancakes (joy of all joys!) and we did a bit more packing but also stopped to 1. take a walk, 2. do some yoga and 3. watch episodes 7 & 8 of The Last Dance (yes, even I am watching).  Around 5, my mom, dad, sister and Wayne came over and look, please don’t judge me.  I don’t know what the rules are any more and it is shockingly easy to talk yourself into seeing your family.  We sat outside, at separate tables and each had our own box of take out food from La Loma.  We did a margarita cheers to my sister because graduating nursing school is a big deal and we couldn’t leave it at a Zoom call only!  My mom made a batch of virgin margs for me that had pickle juice in it, which must be why it tasted so good 🙂  I even let my mom and sis touch my bump (masks on!), but this bathroom selfie I snapped shows the bump a bit more clearly.

After everyone left, we watched the last two episodes of The Last Dance.  That part about Steve Kerr and his father though 😦  I have now gone from a person who’s only Michael Jordan knowledge came from Space Jam, to liking tweets about “the poison pizza.”  This is who I am now.  I hope you all had a good weekend 🙂
