Weekending + An EXCITING Announcement

Boo hiss to Monday, but cheers to nothing short of a relaxing, lazy weekend!

Last week was very tiring between work and keeping things tidy around the house so I completely failed at blogging last week. The only post that went live was my last weekending update. Oops. I promise to do better this week!

After I left work on Friday, I headed to the gym for a quick circuit workout, picked up E and Chipotle, then had a lovely dinner date at home with E, Chipotle and me. It was glorious. The evening consisted with J and I watching "Meet the Millers" - it was funny, but not something I would watch again.

On Saturday we hung around the house for a while, then headed to the park to run out some energy.

Even after multiple days on medicine, my mommy instinct told me E was still not 100 percent. After her complaining that her mouth hurt, being a bit lethargic, and having an actual accident at the playground (which NEVER happens), I cancelled our plans for the night. Instead we grilled burgers for dinner and introduced E to Shrek.

I think it's the same director as Trolls? Maybe?

During our family movie night, E turned my first born into a pillow.

Please ignore the tacky "fire" in the background - a certain little toddler is obsessed.

Sunday morning we headed to church followed by a trip to the grocery store, where I angered more Publix employees (not quite like last time though). If you follow me on Instagram, you may have already seen this....

Yall. This pound of GreenWise ground beef was priced at two cents! TWO FLIPPING PENNIES!!!

Naturally, I did what any person would do and grabbed ALL of it.

When I checked out it did not ring up as marked (i.e. $5 or $6) so much to my husband's dismay (because he does not like confrontation and can get embarrassed easily), I asked the cashier if she would honor the price. Grudgingly, she did....After she called over the store manager who then called back to the meat department. I wanted to tell them that all was well since every package was thrown in my buggy, but decided to keep my mouth shut.

Needless to say, my beautiful, but small, counter-depth fridge was packed full after our outing.

After lunch, laundry, nap, and meal prep, E and I headed over to the neighbor's house so our little ladies could hang out. Apparently I forgot to tell J we were headed out and he wandered over as well since his search for us in the house was not successful. A couple of hours later, we headed home when this exciting announcement was finally official....

Since it's Facebook official, I can finally share that I AM GOING TO BE AN AUNT!!!

Having my sis and BIL move closer to home was one of the best things about 2016. Now, they can be around their families as they grow theirs. Words cannot express how thrilled and excited I am to have a nephew (my opinion - the gender isn't known yet) to spoil! Since my sister is infatuated with breakfast from Chick-Fil-A, this announcement seems fitting, doesn't it?

The only big item on this week's agenda is our visit with the ENT to discuss E and her strep. Five times in five months is no bueno. Keep us in your prayers, please.

  5. Someone made a horrible boo-boo in the meat market of Publix. I'm glad they honored that price. Congrats to being an aunt. That's the cutest announcement (and I agree their chicken biscuits are so YUMMY). I hope you get good news about E. That is a lot of strep! Poor thing. Thanks for linking, Adrienne!
