A Simple, but Solid Weekend

Welcome back, my lovely readers! This might come as a shock to you- but I have a weekend recap to tell you about! With pictures, and everything! Pretty much as of late most of my weekends have been work, work, work, football, work, working for football and repeat. This weekend was a smidge different- I made plans and actually went places other than my couch and my office.

Well, okay to be fair, Friday night was spent with my couch. Since Jared was having guys night and since I don't have any friends didn't have plans, I decided to just embrace having the house to myself. After a sucky, painful workout (that I'm glad I did!) and a quick shower I successfully changed into my comfiest penguin pajama pants, my favorite sweatshirt of Jared's and the best fuzzy socks I own. Sexyyyyyyy! ;)

So my couch and I bonded and I watched all the silly shows and movies on Netflix that Jared will never agree to. I may have also simultaneously played CandyCrush and went a little Pin-crazy as well. It was glorious.

Saturday my sister-in-law and I officially started Christmas shopping! It may seem early but people, Christmas is ONLY 10 weeks away! And my great friend Sallie reminded me it's a lot easier on the budget if you shop throughout the year rather than all at once. So we snagged some awesome deals and it feels good to have a small chunk of my shopping done. Remember how I have a brand new niece? Yeah, it's impossible to NOT buy everything in site for her!

Jared and I met back up and he "approved" all my purchases ;) We headed to our Saturday night church service -always awesome- and then did a quick dinner out before calling it a night. Boy, we're a wild couple!!

Sunday we prepped the house for a few guests and of course, a Bengals Sunday. I swear, they never make it easy on us fans, but they pulled out a win in overtime, thankfully! It's not fun having a house full of guests over for a loss-- much better when we can celebrate together :)

So, how was your weekend? Was it football-filled? Did you catch up on Netflix like I did? I am VERY excited about a lot of fun things this week- so bring it on Monday! I'm ready to conquer you today.

  1. Relaxing and Pin-crazy Friday nights like yours are simply the best! I kinda sorta had a Pin-crazy whole weekend and I didn't hate it one bit, comfy PJ pants included! :) I'm so glad you had a great weekend and woohoooo budget-friendly holiday shopping!

  6. Sounds like a great weekend!! I love the fuzzy sock nights when I can watch my netflix chick-flicks by myself. I actually did that Saturday afternoon when CV was gone....he came home and I was watching "Little Bit of Heaven" and was crying on the couch....and he just laughed and rolled his eyes. Haha.

  10. That does sound like a pretty wild night. ;-) But to be honest, those low key nights are my favorite. Let's be old married couples together!

  11. I also had lots of Netflix time! Unfortunately, football yesterday was extremely rough in Houston. This just isn't a good season so far!

  12. So, for the first time this season, BOTH of our teams won! And even though we're not crazy about each other's team, I think that's cause for celebration :)

  21. It is so hard to believe that Christmas is only 10 weeks away...eeek! Such a good idea to start the shopping now. I know I'll regret that I didn't with having a little baby during Christmas. People will be receiving gift cards this year haha!
