{weekend notes}

Monday! When you don’t whoop it up on the weekend, Monday’s don’t suck quite as bad. Not going to lie, yesterday I straight up struggled. Kept trying to stay busy so I didn’t think about pouring a glass of wine or opening a beer..lol. Enjoy this sunshine and make today a good one!!

Intentions for the Week:

  • Make a fun Springy flower arrangement
  • Watch my nephews play baseball
  • Tell you guys more about Weight Watchers (I’ve been getting lots of questions)
  • Try homemade buffalo cauliflower
  • Movie theater date with Cory to see Free Solo
  • List clothes to sell on online yard sale and Poshmark
  • Stay on track with point and activity
  • Challenge myself to no online shopping all week
  • Try not to dream about booze

This week on the blog: DIY Spring wreath. Target finds. And hopefully a St Patrick’s Day day recipe…if I can get my shit together.

Highlights from the weekend…..

{friday 5}

Friiiidaaayyyyy! 11 days left till SPRING! (I just googled it) Goodbye Winter. Gimme all the sunshine. I woke up early AF, like always. I made the decision to skip the gym and clean my house for 2 hours. And I feel really fucking happy about that decision. There’s something to be said about starting your day with a workout, trust me, I get it. But, leaving for work on a Friday morning with a clean AF house. It’s pretty close up there too. I did a little shimmy as I walked out the door. Ha!

Weekend plans: zip. zlich. nada. Which makes me slightly anxious. Being sober and all. What will I do all day? Anyway, have a great weekend! Do all the things. Have a drink or two for me, k?

Before you get your weekend started, I’ve got 5 things on my mind…….

Happy Tuesday peeps! Sorry for the multiple posts today. Yesterday’s {weekend notes} was all set and ready to publish and somehow about half of the post was gone. Deleted. Nowhere to be found. And I chose to drink wine instead of work on it more last night. Priorities…..You know how it goes.

So today you get a BOGO. Except you didn’t have to buy shit to get the second one free. lol.

I was flipping trough a Taste of Home magazine last week and stumbled on these adorable marble meringue hearts. I’m such a sucker for cheesy Holiday tchotchkes + treats. And since I had all 4 ingredients for the meringues and there was no school yesterday, I recruited Bay the Baker to whip some up. I have one on each place setting.

Do you know what happens when I go to bed at 8 pm?

I’m wide awake at 3:30 am.  Fun, huh?  Wanna know what was on my mind?  I’m gonna tell you anyway…lol!!!

Do you pronounce the letter “r” in February?

Feb-you-ary

OR

Feb-roo-ary?

Swear.to.god.  This was one of the manyyyy things that I was thinking about in the wee hours of the morning.

Oh and a Valentine’s day charcuterie board.  Random, right?  So, now I have to hit up TJ’s at lunch and bring my vision to life.

And lastly….an egg roll in a bowl.  Ha!  I’m thinking ground turkey or maybe sausage?  Over a coleslaw mix.  With all kinds of seasonings.  Doesn’t that sound good?  Bringing that to life too.

{chocolate mini layer cakes}

Bay Bakes, again!  A few weeks back I shared Bailey’s beautiful Chocolate Mini Layer Cakes.  I was such a tease.  Ha!  I have planned to shared them the whole time.  Promise!  Just waiting till it got a little closer to Valentine’s Day.  As I think this would make the perfect festive treat.

Since it is the month of all things chocolate + flowers.

Made from a simple sheet cake.  Boxed…that’s our jam.  Or homemade cake batter.  Whatever you prefer.  These mini cakes are crazy simple to put together.

The best part.

The Buttercream frosting recipe.  Be careful…..it’s dangerous.  And you will have leftovers.  Which can be refrigerated for up to a month in an airtight container.  If you can keep your hands out of it for 30 damn days!

Hey Monday!  Anyone else think the Monday after Super Bowl should be a holiday?  Because, hot damn, I’m tired.  And I was in bed by 8pm.  Technically I didn’t really even watch the Super Bowl.  Really, I was just there for the food + booze + commercials.  I bought a shit-ton of pool squares and didn’t win a dime.  Typical.  Our weekend was everything I’d hoped it would be.  Chill AF.  But, I still accomplished all the things too.

 

Intentions for the Week:

  • sign making class with Emily Murphy Designs
  • work on photo editing the night before
  • go through Bay’s closet #growthspurt AGAIN!
  • donate + sale all everything before the weekend
  • wash my car inside + out
  • style a festive coffee table
  • deep clean bathrooms
  • make a cute Galentine for my main gals
  • watch Bay horse ride
  • insta story parmesan chips
  • hit the gym

 

This week on the blog: Greek Salad over hummus.  Abercrombie try-on.  Bay Bakes.  And we’ll see what else I can come up with!

Highlights from the weekend……

We started the weekend off with face mask night.  Minus Kissey (she was sick) so we’ll have to do it again soon.  My Mom had never done a face mask before so we treated her.  I tried to get her to let me shave her lips too, but it was a no go.  Maybe next time.
