Weekend o’ fun

Andrew and I had a jam packed weekend o’ fun!

Photo overload… Haha


Andrew had requested pancakes for breakfast, so I whipped up some paleo pumpkin pancakes


(not as good as the apple, but you can’t go wrong with pumpkin!)

Next up was the grocery store, and then to some estate sales with my sister in law.


I picked up this small table for Andrews room(to paint), some tools for the house, small container of stain,  and then this coat for $4!


It needs to be dry cleaned, but I have been looking for a coat like that, and they go for $80 bucks at kohls!

After a quick lunch, and 30 minute workout with p90x3, we decorated the house.

This year we were definitely behind on the decorations, but it turned out really cute. now just a nose a mouth for the front door 😉

After running around the house, cleaning and putting things away, along with cooking, it was time for a bon fire with some of my friends.


It was such a nice night out. We had pulled pork, salsa and chips, and smores. Lots of eating!



I love that weekends can start with a great breakfast. (when I’m not working… )


Pancakes, bacon and egg for a paleo egg sandwich 🙂

Andrew and I then went to church. I then did one of my favorite p90x3 workouts.


After that, it was lots of laundry, dishes, cooking, and cleaning. And baseball out front with Andrew since it is in the 80s here! After that we headed to my parents for dinner. My sister in law made this amazing cake!


It was REALLY delicious too! There has been a lot going on in the family, so we haven’t had many family dinners, and this one was needed. There is A LOT going on this week, but more on that later….

Question for you:

What was your favorite part of your weekend?

When workouts fall off the schedule

The past few days have been a bit busy. Yesterday I  had my nephew in the morning. We tried to make it to the gym, but they wouldn’t watch him because I’m not his legal guardian (I understand, but really needed a workout)


So instead we played alittle soccer. I then went and helped with the twins. Who are still adorable as ever! And then I went out with friends for the first Cardinals game of the World Series (although, that was just a practice round since it went so bad haha)

Today was more running around for Halloween costumes, and groceries

P1080363I feel like there is always an empty frig. And Andrew isn’t even a teenager yet haha

P1080370 P1080371 P1080372 P1080373 P1080374 P1080375 P1080376

The lonely bananas…… haha

Then I worked the book fair at Andrew’s school and then ran to the gym. I HAD to get a workout in today. This week is just pathetic!

Now I am going to my first community group through my church. I am kind of nervous to meet new people and not seem like a dork…. we shall see haha

Question for you:

How do you squeeze in workouts?

Do you notice when you miss a workout?

I have a date with my bed

Yesterday I started feeling sick. I was able to take Dayquil and I would feel better for a few hours. But I have this head cold thing. So this morning when I woke up. I knew it was going to be a rough day. And I have a MILLION things to do!!!!!!!!!!

My friends are coming tomorrow, so I first started the day taking this guy to school

then running to the grocery store and target

I got this for A BUCK!

A big bowl for halloween candy!

and a few more halloween things. I LOVE halloween

For this weekend, I want to make cookies. So I had to get cookie sheets (can you believe I have lived here almost FOUR weeks and I havent made cookies yet!!!!!!!!!!!!!    thats crazy talk)

I am not a bad cook, but I also didnt have a fire extingusher for the kitchen. (I think every house should have one)

And all these things came with it. Now, am I really going to read the directions when my house is on fire?

I also got some flowers to make my house alittle nicer when the girls get here tomorrow!

I also found TWO steals at target!!!!!

I got this necklace for 7 dollars

And I got this for $3.24!!!!!!

I think I might wear this this weekend since its in the 50s

I will now be chugging this

And hanging in bed. (after I write this post, Im taking a nap)

I really should be cleaning. The girls will be here tomorrow!

Like tackling the top of the frig, where I put things that don’t have a “home” yet

well, im off to bed! I hope I can sleep this thing away!!!

Question for you:

What is your favorite holiday?

Do you look for steals? (and get so excited like me 😉 haha)
