Welcome back Monday. I actually don’t mind you as much as I usually do this particular week mainly because I spent all Saturday thinking it was Sunday so basically Sunday felt like another free day. I know. I’m bizarre. Seriously though I got to sleep with no alarm besides the internal one a certain somebody seems to have……I went to Barre both mornings and got some amazing shaking legs workouts in. I got all my thank you cards done. I mean shoot we even meal prepped and planned for the weekend. Making moves over here. Linking up with Meghan and Biana for their weekend updates!
So my landlord was wondering when I was planning to move out of my place……you and everyone else. I made my official move out date of January 1st. Cue the anxious butterflies. As I say to Mark the end game of all of this is us living with each other. I guess Dan Marino…..(not the actual MVP Superbowl Champion) but his framed jersey is going to take up residence behind someone else’s couch pretty soon. Not a moment too soon in my book. I’ll take all advice about combing households that don’t involve me saying “because it looks terrible like that” because that isn’t the most constructive way of getting things done. Anyways……..
I started off my weekend with getting a fabulous surprise in the mail! My little sent me this Roman Numeral necklace that I have been eyeing. She told me that she wished the Weddings she had been in prior that the bride had a blog with posts like this…..it made picking out gifts very easy! Isn’t is perfect?
Friday night Mark wanted to “get dressed up and go out to eat“. His words not mine. I would say I wouldn’t believe it either but I have text evidence. I’ll always jump at the chance to get prettied up. We went to our favorite spot Bern’s steakhouse. Not for the very expensive steak dinner but to sit at the bar and get burgers, steak sandwiches and drink the house wine. Perfect meal and totally within budget.
Saturday I was up to take Barre and then starting to get my condo in order. I have already given the first load of clothes out of my closet to some of my girlfriends. I definitely need a round two and three. Homegirl has a lot of clothing. I really want to start editing down my pieces to the really good quality and versatile ones. I need to start making some room. I put together this outfit for the Gator game…..to watch them throw it away but I can’t even discuss.
Y’all know my love for Sally Hansen Complete Salon. Picked up this dark navy color. It’s a little harder to put on than the lighter colors…..because you know dark is like impossible to put on but the brush design on it makes it a lot easier.
Sunday was spent with Barre in the morning, trip to Trader Joe’s and making this amazing crockpot. Mark is not a chicken fan but he was all over this. One packet of ranch dry seasoning with a heavy handed pour of Franks Red Hot. Put in the crockpot on low, then after 5-6 hours shred with a fork and let cook for up to another hour. We put it in fajitas and had shredded spicy chicken fajitas night. Plus leftovers for lunch total win win. I thought it was a tiny bit too salty, I would probably add some low sodium chicken broth and a little less Red Hot.
Local peeps guess what is BOGO at Publix?!?!? This is definitely one of my top store bought Peppermint Ice Creams. Don’t get the slow churned version it tastes like chemicals.
Check back tomorrow for some of the things I’m Digging! Preview absolutely loving this layered delicate look with my Wedding date necklace!
Hope you have a great start to your week! xoxoxoxo
