Weekend Recap: I Like to Embarrass Myself

I didn’t know if I’d actually get around to checking in today. I had super important stuff to do like flail around in my front yard trying to mow the lawn, scream bloody murder when I stepped in an ant bed, and cry when I rubbed my thumbs raw because I have paper for skin. No big deal. Of course every single person in the neighborhood drove by to observe this spectacle. Of course they did. It’s only the second time I’ve ever mowed the lawn so I’m feeling pretty confident that I might even attempt it a third time at some point in my life. I don’t want to get ahead of myself, though. In the mean time, I’m soothing myself with late night chips and dip and rambling to you guys. Since it’s Monday, that means it’s time for a weekend recap. I’m thinking we should go sentence-per-picture on this one. Who’s with me?


I don’t know how he didn’t see that huge piece of machinery, and I thought my shirt was longer than it actually is.

I’m in awe of people who completed this, because I can’t swim and I haven’t ridden a bike since I was 12.

This is convenience store/bar/restaurant but not a gas station, and it’s confusing and awesome.

I took an inordinate amount of time trying to find a book in Barnes and Noble, so I’m pretty glad Legos were invented.



Kids’ birthday parties would be more fun without kids, and I’m only sort of kidding about that.



I’m going to get sappy for a minute and say that I’ve missed these two masked beauties.



Turn up for what?



Macaroni and cheese + spinach smoothie = lunch of champions.

Six miles of hilly torture later, I questioned if I’m even capable of non-ridiculous-looking running.



Just a casual afternoon snack at the mall.

Overall it was a great weekend. We went to a birthday party for one of the cutest little girl’s around, I wore leggings the entire time, and I even got a super awkward run in. I chose to run in a new-to-me neighborhood and it was full of steep inclines. I swear to you I was basically army crawling up one of them. Never again. I don’t think I can even drive on those roads without having a panic attack in the future. Really, though, it was pretty humbling. I take for granted my fitness levels when I’m on a roll. Lately I’ve been slacking and it shows. I better get it together, y’all. Anyone else need to step it up this week? Let’s do this. ;)

Weekend Recap: Disney World

Another Tuesday is in the books, folks. This morning I curled my dirty hair and just walked around pretending to have my act together. I mentioned being tired yesterday and I still haven’t really caught up in the sleep department. I had big plans for a few detailed vacation recaps, but then I realized that’s […]


Home Sweet Home + Meatless Meal Planning

The “Meatless Meals” portion of this post is sponsored by Foodie.com. We’re back from our vacation but the last thing I feel is totally rested and ready to go for the week. Disney parks are no joke, y’all. That’s some serious cardio, especially when you add in running around trying to make sure your kid […]

Friday Favorites: This Is Mostly Just Food

Happy Friday! We’re seriously having a blast in Orlando right now. This morning we headed into Blizzard beach after breakfast. I was initially a little bummed about the weather until I realized that the overcast skies were the best thing that could have ever happened. It wasn’t scorching hot and the clouds seemed to scare […]
