The weekend that was

1. We headed to Pottstown to celebrate Gail's birthday.
2. Gail and I always bet on things, and we bet wine and slim jims. So I taped some slim jims to her wine for her birthday. 
3. We drank all the wine in Pennsylvania.
4. Cake! It was great to see Aunt Carrie & Uncle Jim, the Rhode Island Doyles, and Gail's friends. 
5. Me and MFD
6. MFD loaded up a bag with candy to take to bed with him. No lie. 

1. Coffee. Hangover.
2. The dogs missed us. Thank you Effing Warren for staying with them!
3. TV catch up: The Americans and Body of Proof, all day long. Except for an awful Hallmark movie with Jason Priestly and Bradley Cooper. AND Mr. Mom. I freaking love that movie.
4. MFD was whisked away by friends so I enjoyed a day of silence and ordering in. Mozz sticks were the winners.
5. I spent all day on the couch, and I slept there too. BOOM. I'm glad I got my chores done on Thursday night so this was a possibility.

1. Yay! My first time using my Christmas gift from Dad & Carol. I love hanging laundry out. Other hausfrauing: washing couches, wiping things down, blah blah. 

2. Weekly food prep:  black bean enchiladas on whole wheat tortillas for lunch, cucumbers and red peppers for snacks, spinach egg bake for breakfast. I sauteed some spinach until it was wilted, laid it in the bottom of an 8x12 pan, topped it with a cup of shredded pepper jack cheese. I whisked 10 eggs with some dry mustard and garlic powder, threw some salt in, and poured them over the spinach and cheese. I baked it at 350 for 30 minutes.

3. Nails: Zoya Happi and a little pink glitter accent nail.

4. Jenny & Evan's Sprinkle for baby boy Leslie due in May.

5. Sunday dinner: Roast chicken, brussels sprouts steamed with a few pats of butter and salt, and saffron rice for dinner. I rub my chicken down with butter, season with Lawry's Seasoned Salt, and bake at 350 for 20 minutes per pound. I don't open the oven until  it's finished. 

I need another day between Saturday and Sunday. Who can I talk to to make this happen?

Linking up with Join the Gossip for Monday Morning Gossip, Sami's Shenanigans for Weekend Shenanigans, Lipgloss & Crayons and Still Being Molly for YOLO Mondays, and Northern Belle Diaries and Postcards from Rachel for I Love Bloglovin'.


  1. I need another weekend day too! Although, it looks like your weekends are busier than mine ;)

  2. those goddamn cheesy movies always suck you in right? lifetime movie network is like some kind of drug. kirk had his buddy over sunday to help him hang drywall and afterwards they come upstairs to find me watching 'the craigslist killer' on LMN. both made fun of me. corey left. kirk was engrossed in the movie. and openly admitted it.
    theyre so bad, but so good

  3. I am so jealous of your gorg nails!

  4. What a cute and springy nail color. Is it sort of ombre/gradient or is that just the pic?

  5. Mozzarella sticks are amazing. I am a little afraid of them after I choked on one as a kid. That damn cheese gets stuck in your throat.

    I roasted a chicken yesterday too, and for me, it is always a better idea than it actually turns out.

    I don't mind the prep and the cooking but the cutting is a giant clusterfuck. I had chicken and juice everywhere and the dogs were frothing at the mouth.

  6. starting *ugh* Atkins tomorrow... will try that spinach egg thingy!

  7. yesterday outside all day for your brother's soccer games & tired as a little kid who played outside all day. AND chilled- it's too cold for spring. 3 day weekends would be the BOMB!
    I am making that spinach egg bake.
    Carpe diem, everyone!

    Love your MOMMA

  8. You seriously need to quit your day job and become a chef/foodie blogger.

    Is that a mint chocolate chip iced coffee??

    I always push the dang cork into the bottle of wine. It adds flavor. Or something.

  9. I love that you gave someone slim Kona and wine! That is amazing :) love the nails!

  10. Can we call it "Sunderday?" or something similar?

    I love that you drank all the wine, even with a cork in it! And I am always amazed at your productivity!

  11. I think it should always be a three day weekend-- Saturday and Sunday go by too fast. DD iced coffee is always a cure for a wine induced headache.

  12. i second the motion of a day between saturday and sunday. also, how do your nails look so perfect? jealous of your couch time.

  13. a lounge-around Saturday sounds nice! I took a long afternoon nap, but still had things to do around that.

    have a lovely Monday!

    xoxo, Amy @ Interpret As You May

  14. So many things I love about this post! Seriously... the watermelon baby, the mozz sticks, the pups, girl time! It looks and sounds like the perfect weekend!!

  15. So many things I love about this post! Seriously... the watermelon baby, the mozz sticks, the pups, girl time! It looks and sounds like the perfect weekend!!

  16. Looks like fun times! :) Love your pictures!

  17. Stopping by from the Weekend update linkup. I wish I could help you on the whole 3 day weekend... Unfortunetly I truly need the week to reverse and have 5 day weekend and 2 day work week.

  18. What a great, busy weekend, girl! :-)

  19. Fun weekend! Glad you had some Gail time and some alone time. I haven't had roast chicken in forever and it sounds so good.

  20. Looks like a great weekend..those pup faces are so darn cute!!! LOVE that baby shower watermelon!! So cute!

  21. Did you watch I Want to Marry Ryan Banks?!?! I may or may not have watched the movie as well! ahaha!

    looks like a nice relaxing weekend for you!WOOHOO!

  22. you're telling me!! i totally need another day on the weekend! i would LOVE to lounge around just one day on a weekend and do nothing.

  23. That watermelon fruit baby thing is so funny! I love Slim Jim's. I'm always embarrassed to admit that out loud. Your day on the couch sounds wonderful, minus the hangover. Zoya Happi is pretty and springy. I love it!

  24. I reallllllly want the cheese sticks.
    And the quilt.

  25. Busy weekend for you! I love the fruit salad w/ the baby face in it. I've seen that before and always thought it would be cute to make.

    On a totally different note - do you read Jenn's blog - Perfectly Imperfect. She has 2 pugs and just lost one so she is having a hard time. Seeing your pics reminded me since you have pugs too.

  26. Those nails are amazing! Is it just the lighting, or does the color change or have a gradient to it?
