Weekend Recap

Another weekend has gone by way too fast!  How did we get to Monday already?

Last week was super busy at work, not to mention I started a new workout program, so it was a bit of an intense week.  I got into work early Friday morning and to give you a little insight on the toll the week was taking on me and my mind set, here is a funny story.  I got to my car, when I couldn't remember if I had unplugged my straightener.  Not an unusual thought for me, and normally I just give myself a little talk like, yes you did unplug it, you are being paranoid, bla bla bla.  Well since the day was going to be stressful at work, I didn't want to add this on, so I decided to go check.  Usually I can just open the door and see it unplugged, but when I opened the door this time, I couldn't see anything on my bathroom counter.  Which is unusual, because my hair is pretty much the last thing I do before I head out the door, so I always leave it on the counter to cool.  I actually come into the apartment, check the bathroom, only to realize I didn't even use my straightener this morning because I wore my hair up!  What in the world was I thinking?!  The day was a bit bumpy, as you can probably tell with how it started, but we finally got to 2:00 and things were looking up.  The week called for a happy hour AND ice cream, so I indulged in both after work.  

Saturday morning I didn't set an alarm, which was super nice.  I got in a morning walk - it was chilly!  By the time I was done, though, I was pretty warm since I had bundled up so much.  The leaves have finally changed, so it was a super pretty walk.  I tried the Jimmy Johns 'unwich' for lunch, which basically is just the sandwich in a lettuce wrap.  It was a tiny bit messy to eat, but was really good!  I had probably one of the fastest grocery trips ever, which was pretty nice.  I love when I can just get in and out.  I cleaned the rest of the day and watched a few Christmas movies on Hallmark.  The December Bride is probably one of my favorites from last year, I would highly suggest that one if you haven't seen it yet!  


I was excited to go to church on Sunday since I had missed the previous week and it was also our celebration, but unfortunately I woke up super early with a bad stomach ache.  Luckily I never got sick, but I was pretty much down for the count the entire day.  Some days it's nice to just rest, but I was getting super stir crazy yesterday.  TV didn't sound good, books didn't sound good - it was one of those type days.  

It's a new week though, and almost Halloween to boot.  My nephew is going to be Jack Frost and my sister in law made the cutest costume for him.  We saw a part of it while visiting last weekend, so I cannot wait to see how it all comes together!

Hope you all have a great Monday!

Linking up with Biana.

  4. Not setting an alarm is always the best plus a morning walk! I can't believe the Christmas movies are already out on Hallmark - I haven't had time to watch any but my DVR is filling in!

  5. I'm sorry to hear you weren't feeling well -- hope you're feeling good now!

    Omg, that straightener situation is the story of my life. Mine shuts off automatically but I STILL make myself turn around and go home to check it if I feel unsettled about whether or not it's shut off. I swear I have a touch of OCD.

  6. I am ALWAYS going back to make sure I turned my curling iron off. I'm always afraid I'm going to burn the house down and murder my dog :( So I finally gave in and bought a new one that has the automatic shut off lol

  7. Too funny about your hair straightener! Isn't it so crazy how our minds can trick us into worrying about something? I don't know if I've seen the December Bride, but I'll definitely look for it!

  8. I keep hearing about the Jimmy John's unwich!!! I'm a big fan of replacing bread with lettuce, so clearly I need to get on this! Also, I hope you're feeling MUCH better now!

  9. That sounds like the best weekend, especially with the cooler weather and all the leaves changing! That's a bummer that you got sick though, and I'm glad that you're feeling better!

  10. The straightener story made me laugh, because I have definitely done that, but with my curling iron!!!! We didn't set an alarm on Saturday morning either and it was glorious lol it's the little things!! I hate that you weren't feeling well Sunday, but sometimes I think that's our bodies way of telling us we need to rest!! Also, definitely going to watch that Hallmark movie soon!! Hope you have a great week! :)

  11. Not setting the alarm is the best! Hope you are feeling better now!

    Your straightener story is pretty much the story of my life. I feel so scatterbrained with that kind of stuff lately that I'm constantly checking and rechecking.

  12. I LOVE A December Bride!! I watch it every time I catch it on. Hope you're feeling better today! There are 2 things I always worry about when I leave the house: did I leave my straightener on & did I shut the garage door? My dad solved that for me. He told me to just take a picture so that if I can't remember when I get to work I have a photo to prove I did it. I seriously take one every day of my unplugged straightener and closed garage door and then delete them that night. Dad for the win because it has worked like a charm!

  14. I do that with my straightener all the time! I also get paranoid I forgot to let the dogs back in the house. I run back home at least once a week to double check. Ha. I keep wanting to try an unwich from UK. My husband loves them.

  15. Oh my goodness the straightener situation is so something I would have done. I've been looking for my sunglasses and they've been on my head, searching for my cell phone and it's in my hand..womp womp. Beautifully Candid

  16. Haha. I'm cracking up over your hair straightener thing. Sounds like something I would do! There have been plenty of times where I've been panicking over finding something that I'm missing only to realized that it's literally in my hand. Lawd.

    And thank you for the Hallmark movie rec! I used to not be able to watch those becuase they're so cheesy, but the older I get, the more I like cheesy and happy feel-good stuff, so I'm actually thinking of checking some of those out this season!

  18. Oh my gosh I've totally had a morning like yours on Friday. It happens. I'm glad you got to rest this weekend, especially with the stomach ache. Hopefully this week is a new week!

  19. Sorry to have a giggle at your straightener story but I did. I totally know and understand those kinds of days - they happen far too regularly. Hope this week is better!

  22. Laughing so hard at your straightener story! I did that last week with my garage door which made me late for work, but I was mad because I did shut it! I tried reassuring myself, too, that I had shut it, but I still went back to check.

    And I love A December Bride, too!! The storyline is so great!
