Weekend Recap!

Happy Monday y’all!   I am linking up today with HoHo Runs and MissSippiPiddin for Weekly Wrap!
Well, fall weather has finally settled in.  This morning it was in the 50s! The humidity was gone and it was gorgeous out!  I love this kind of weather.  Cool mornings warming up to a pleasant mid-70 degree day!  I really can’t say I miss the northern weather.

Friday night I had a *tough* babysitting job.  It is rough when the kids are already in bed and I have to do it chill 😉  It was a nice end to a bit of a nutty week!

I woke up early Sat morning to news that my nephew had arrived!! Yahoo!  I got to meet him over FaceTime. He is so sweet!
Saturday I had big plans to going to the gym for a class or so, but I slept really cruddy Friday night so I ended up resting some before doing housework and my own home workout.
The hubs went out of town for a memorial service for one of his nephews.  Not the best reason to see family, but he had a nice time with his sister and some other relatives.
I was able to get some work done at our house and rearranged some furniture in anticipation of some new items!!
Later in the day I had the privilege of taking care of 2 of my favorites overnight!  We of course had a blast!  Made tacos, had movie night and a huge cuddle fest!
IMG_2217Sunday we all woke up and the kids wanted biscuits, so biscuits I made, along with some eggs, fruit and some gravy with ground bison!
Mid afternoon the Hubs came back into town and we got our new to us couch loaded into his truck.  Plodded back to our house and got the couch in the house.  Then headed off to pick up our new-to-us TVs.  It was a bit of a production getting them home.  For some reason, the 3 main roads that head south were all backed up!  Instead of it taking 10-15 min to get home it took almost an hour.  It was an annoyance but I kept reminding myself that we were safe, not in an accident and a-ok.  We sat in traffic and belted out Natalie Grant’s new single!
When we got home the Hubs warmed up some dinner while I got things ready to move furniture!  It was a bit messy but ended up turning out pretty well!


In the middle of the chaos

After we moved the furniture and I set up the new TVs 🙂
The new set up is homey and we have tons of space for anyone who wants to come over 🙂

That is about it for the weekend!  I still have lots of work to do on the rest of the house, and especially my office….for being an organizing queen, the disarray is driving me batty!  My goal is to have it mostly finished by tomorrow night! I would like the housekeepers to actually be able to clean when they come!  😉

To end the weekend on a fabulous note, I finally booked our last trip of the year!  I am taking the Hubs to Costa Rica!  He has never been and I have not been down for 7 years!!!  This will be my 10th time and I can not wait!  I was able to find an awesome deal.  It is like Christmas came early!

Seven Things About Me:

1. Ever since I was in third grade, my passion for sports was volleyball!  I loved it so much that it became my dream to play for the Olympic team.  Unfortunately that dream crumbled when I found out I had several tumors in my back/on my scapula and they had to remove them along with other bone and muscle.  I still enjoy a good pick-up game, and my serve is still pretty great if I do say so myself 🙂  Now I focus on my running instead!

2. I have lived in 13 states! Minnesota, Colorado, North Dakota, South Dakota, Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois (2 times), New York, Pennsylvania (4 times), Louisiana, Maryland, Virginia, and Texas.
I always did really well in geography classes!  Haha

3. My favorite place to visit is Costa Rica!  I have been there 9 times, but it has been a while now!  I must plan a trip ASAP!
Here are a few of my fav pics from over the years!

4.  I used to HATE salads!  As in, I would have one small lettuce leaf, and then pile on all the other ingredients.  I am sure they were not really super healthy when I used to eat this this way (circa 2000).  I am so glad I realized that I actually DO like salads, but only when the ingredients are amazing!

5.  We used to have a dog! But sadly he ran away…Once we have a better yard/fence/house, I want another dog.  And one that I can run with would be ideal!
Any advice about running with dogs and which breed is the best is welcome!!!

6. My goal for my 40th birthday is to have completed a half marathon in each state!  5 states down, 45 to go in the next 7 years!  And I am thinking Hawaii for the big 4-0!!

7. If I could have any animals as pets and they would live in harmony in my back yard, I would have an elephant, and a zebra!
