A Fabulous Weekend

What a FABULOUS weekend!! Isn't it great when a weekend doesn't necessarily hold some special event or some epic happening, but it's still awesome?? Jared and I truly soaked in every ounce of this weekend with each other and with T and it couldn't have gone better.

Friday I had a couple errands to run so while my boys held down the fort I was out and about for a few hours. I had a package to pick up from my old office so I swung by there to grab it while I was out. It was nice to see my boss and the familiar faces that I worked with for so long. As cheesy as this might sound... it feels like home when I go there. I'm comfortable, I'm welcomed with open arms and it's like I never left. Me staying home is the best option for our family, but it's nice to be in touch with my work peeps here and there. There were talks of a "reunion" happy hour so I hope someone puts those plans into action.

After meeting with a contractor first thing Saturday morning, we hit up a tiny, local Halloween/Fall fest in our area. Obviously T is too young to enjoy or appreciate these things, but it was a beautiful day to get out and enjoy the festivities. We got him his own little mini pumpkin which he was totally unimpressed with. 


That night Jared and I entertained ourselves with Snapchat filters and tried out the Halo ice cream everyone has been raving about. Our verdict is that we liked it, but we didn't LOVE it. After awhile, I felt like I really noticed that artificial sweetener after-taste that some of you might be familiar with. It's a nice treat to have when you're trying not to indulge too much, but I didn't go completely ga-ga over it.

My Bengals lost horribly on Sunday. That makes two weeks of ugly losses in a row. While it's brutal and I hate it- I must admit something. It's WAY easier to get over a team loss when I'm not going into work there the very next day. I mean, WOW! I knew it would be different going from an employee to a fan, but I never imagined it would feel this different. I like being a fan, I'll tell you that much! It's much less emotional, no matter the outcome.

I'm excited about this week and all it could hold for me. Cheers to a fresh start!

  1. Sounds like a great weekend. I still haven't tried the Halo Top. Good to know about the artificial sweetener taste. I'll probably just stick with regular ice cream. Love T's little pumpkin.

  6. I often wondered what the office atmosphere would be like when you would be coming in after a loss.

  7. Weekends were it is just real life and nothing major are some of my favorite ones because you never know what they may hold! It sounds like you made the most of it. I have been wanting to try that ice cream but I hate artificial sweeteners for the very reason of their after-taste so now I am less excited about it.

  8. i tried the halo ice cream and mostly liked it, but i don't want to keep sweets in the house even if they 'aren't that bad' because i will eat them, you know? and if i'm going to go out of my way to eat something bad, might as well be something that tastes better lol. i didn't hate it or taste the artificial sweetener you mentioned but it didn't taste as good as other (probably way worse for you) brands.

  9. Totally agree about the Halo ice cream!! TBH, it's just not worth the $5 for me. I'd rather have regular ice cream or save the $5 bucks haha.

  10. That Fall festival sounds like so much fun, and I love the fact that you got T to hold a pumpkin even if he didn't understand what an awesome part of life it is! I definitely think that it's easier to get over a tough loss if you aren't constantly hearing about it in all aspects of your life, but a tough loss still sucks!

  11. The poor Bengals and Panthers :( My teams aren't doing so hot this year. But I'm glad it didn't hinder your weekend!! :)

  12. I've wondered about that Halo ice cream. I was going to buy some last weekend but it was pretty expensive! Maybe I'll try it when it's on sale. Glad you had fun at the pumpkin place!

  13. I love the Halo Top ice cream, but mostly because I really made an effort to cut out sweets, so when I do eat it, it's like a treat. I'm totally weird! The poor Bengals :( That loss was bad, but luckily, you can soak up mama time and not have to deal with post loss Monday!!

  14. I can't justify spending the amount of money on that ice cream that it costs when only a handful of ppl have said its to die for, and others have said not to waste the money. I'll stick with regular, haha!

  17. Um so thanks for a honest review about the Halo Top ice cream... because I have almost bought it so many times, but I just never thought it could taste THAT good!! Haha.

  18. I think ice cream is one of those things where, if you're going to have it, you need to have the real thing! Everything in moderation, I say.

  19. I have always wondered about that ice cream - I feel like I still need to try it!
