TWTW - the one with my people

Friday was the Villanova NCAA Men's Basketball Championship parade down Market Street - I stepped right out of my office to watch...and stood next to a student peeing in a bottle. Good times. We also got headshots taken, and I got this mask at Sephora after talking to the makeup guy about redness. Home to send MFD off to the shore for the weekend and talk to Lori until midnight, sustained by Trevose Pizza and the baked goods she brought.
Saturday we celebrated Baby D with a lovely shower complete with Val's special touches. As you can imagine, I was extremely pleased that the favor was a coffee mug. When it was over we went back to Laura's mom's house and spent a rainy afternoon lolling around on the couches for many hours, eating Brother's Pizza, and laughing our asses off. I felt so good leaving there. I love my old guard girls. Kim and I came back to my house and sat on my couches with Lori for a few more hours.
Sunday Target run with Lori, then we stopped in to see my fabulous niece Lola Jean, who was rocking her I Love My Aunt shirt since two aunts were visiting. On the right is the newest outfit purchased for Lola.
Weekly food prep-I didn't wannnna this weekend so I kept it simple. Breakfast: egg muffins with sausage and gouda; turkey taco meat and salsa (I wanted fresh, they were out, rat bastards) for lettuce wrap lunches; sweet bell peppers, snap peas, and oranges for snacks; and salmon with greek yogurt and dill/rice/steamed green beans for one dinner. Avocado toast for another, and I will probably make a pork tenderloin later this week.
The dogs are exhausted from visitors and excitement. And honestly? So am I. I didn't get enough sleep or drink enough water this weekend.
Sunday afternoon Jana and I recorded for The Armchair Librarians.

I finished a book (Show Us Your Books is tomorrow!), finished the first season of Flaked, and started Rectify.

Peace.

  1. What kind of diffuser do you have? I looked at the price of a Scentsy one and thought...I can't. I just can't.
    Lovely weekend! Mine was filled with home improvement projects. I also binged the first season of Fear The Walking Dead. Oh and finished two books that I had been working on. Library here I come. :)

  2. Weekends with your people sounds wonderful. How ridiculous about the parade, oh college kids!

    A mug is a super cute party favor and woohoo for getting the meal prep done when you don't wanna, you are a rockstar.

  4. Exhausting weekends are almost as bad as short weekends. I need a weekend to recover from my weekend. :(

  5. I love the weekends when its filled with fun things but usually end up being exhausted and regretting it a bit by Monday. I took Friday off an I feel like I could have used 3 more days. Did a Target run this weekend too and I was so pleased with myself that I spent under $100! It was $98 but still under 100!

    I love the little outfit, buying kids clothes is so much fun!

  11. I love those flowers with the brown & white polka dots, so cute! And all that pizza looks delicious. I'm also incredibly jealous of those plates you picked up at Target, they are so bright and happy for summer! Some days I miss Target so much it hurts!

  20. You look so pretty!!! I love the pic of you upper right, was that for your headshot? Looks like a fun weekend and God Bless college students, lol. What a stupid/hilarious/wonderful/ridiculous chapter in life.

  21. It's always fun seeing everybody on the weekends, but it can definitely leave you exhausted! That's so awesome that you got to see the Villanova parade right outside of your office, but totally not awesome that you saw a student peeing in a bottle. Gross!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sounds like a fab weekend. Laughing on couches with friends is indeed a favorite past time of mine. I want that cup cake!

    ReplyDelete
  23. What a great weekend! And that cupcake looks divine!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love kids outfits. I am generally disappointed that they don't make them in adult sizes. Your simple meal prep > my significant effort. Sigh.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Poor you to witness the guy peeing in a cup! That is disgusting! I have issues with redness too so I'd be interested to try it if you liked how it worked.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Love the outfit and very apropos with you as her aunt.

    I definitely enjoyed our Sunday recording even if my office is now my car. Fucking reception.

    ReplyDelete
  27. That is a fantastic first sentence to a blog post!
    I hope somewhere in this time you relaxed ... a little? ... it is a pre-requisite for my weekends.

  28. Love that little outfit you got for your niece!
