Weekend Life

Hi Friends! I was so excited to tell you guys about the #surviveon35 challenge that I forgot to tell you about my weekend!


We kicked it off by heading to happy hour with my in-laws! We went to a restaurant with an awesome rooftop patio.

I drank Oberon- one of my fav summer beers.

We displayed our true feelings.

Afterwards, we went to dinner. Hubby looked over to the next table and noticed Lindsay was sitting next to us! So fun!


We got up early and drove to the farmer’s market in our old college town.

Then we grabbed some bagels and coffee and headed up the hill
for a little picnic breakfast on the quad.

Here’s the farmer’s market haul: Wheatberries, basil, onions, potatoes, focaccia, tomatoes, a couple peppers and some flowers!

Zinnias with basil in the bouquet!

 We took a walk around campus and saw lots of turkey vultures:

My in-laws dropped off some stuff they found in the basement, including hubby’s GIGANTIC high school class ring.

We walked around the art fair but didn’t buy anything:

We ran a few errands and stopped at a second hand store where I scored this little beauty for $2.50. I cannot wait to make some veggie noodles!

I made THE BEST sandwich I’ve had in a long time. I’ll tell you more about it tomorrow in WIAW but just look at it. Food is beautiful.

I learned that scotch tape works really well for removing temporary tattoos:

We had movie night. I don’t sit still for movies very often but i LOVE this movie.

I made popcorn.

All of my animals LOVE popcorn. Especially Tucker.


We bought some giant, industrial shelves for the garage from Costco.
Hubby is so happy.

We went to a bunch of random stores. I spent $20 and got the following:
Batman Begins- We’re going to see Dark Knight Rises this weekend,
but i’ve never seen the first one so we picked it up for cheap.
A resistance band with handles- I hate the ones I have now!
Pens- I’m CONSTANTLY looking for a pen. You can never have too many.
12 pens for $2.00? I’ll take it.
Laser pointer- All the animals love it.
Our old one is lost/ran out of batteries/or something…

It rained. Like a substantial amount. For the first time in forever.
Look at our grass. So that was good.

What wasn’t so good was the fact that it happened about 2 hours before we were supposed to play a volleyball tournament.
So our games were delayed. And our courts looked like this:

What was good was that despite the puddles, and the fact that we had to sit through another lightening delay, and the fact that we didn’t finish until almost 11pm on Sunday night…WE WON THE TOURNAMENT.
That means free beer and pizza next week :) Worth it.

Final random thought:

How was your weekend?!

  3. Looks like you had an eventful weekend! I Always forget you are in C-bus. We went to a place called DenovoCafe this weekend and I HIGHLY recommend it if you’re looking for somewhere new to check out. It’s pricey, but completely worth it.
