Weekend Recap

Last week was an absolute blur. I had every intention of being posting as usual, but I was going to be out Thursday and Friday, so the first part of the week was busy getting ready for that. I had a GREAT week though! Actually, Danny, my brother and me all had a great week. Big, big things happening over the next couple of months that was handed to us on a silver platter. Its about damn time something GOOD fell into our laps. We've all 3 been dealt some pretty shitty stuff the last 5 years. Good things come to those who wait, huh?

Anywho. Danny and I quit the Whole30. We did a Whole25 and feel pretty good about it. Our crazy lives got in the way starting Friday and I just needed some freedom back.  Like I said, I was out of the office Thursday and Friday. I went down to the main office where I write other insurance out of for some training. They took me out to lunch Thursday, where I survived and ate compliantly. As I was leaving Friday, the girl training me said I was a good excuse to bring in donuts and to go to her favorite hole in the wall lunch spot. Hole in the walls don't provide compliant food and I didn't want to burst her bubble. Continuing the Whole30 would have required another trip to the grocery store and I did not have time for that crap.

Saturday started the cleaning marathon. After a Target run and a bridal shower with my mom, I shipped Tucker off with her and took advantage of Diesel being the only living thing home and cleaned. Saturday I got the kitchen and bedrooms done. I visited Danny while I ate my Subway and dropped my mom's car off to him so he could wash it. Then I came home and cleaned Dan Overman style: with a drink in hand.

PSA: La Croix(store brand La Croix is perfectly fine too) is an excellent mixer with white rum. I'm sure its good with vodka too. Here are my top 3 in order: 1. La Croix Curate Cherry Lime (shown above). 2. Kroger brand cranberry lime. La Croix Curate Strawberry Pineapple. I'm relieved that I've found a mixer that wasn't pop or juice.

I managed to get the 2 bedrooms that are currently in use cleaned as well. I swept up a small dogs worth of hair in each though. I quit cleaning when the sun went down and folded laundry and meal planned for the next week while catching up on some tv.

I was able to sleep until Danny got home at 7:15 Sunday morning. I slowly made breakfast and my grocery list then began the last leg of my cleaning marathon: the living room and playroom.  After cleaning and a shower, we went to lunch with my mom and Tuck, Tuck and I ran to and through the grocery, and made it back home in time for me to change clothes and go to another bridal shower. After I got home from that, I did everything I could to not move from a seated position. I. Was. Tired! And still am. Its going to take at least 2 more days to recover I think. The weekend got to Tucker too. He crashed at my moms playing a game at 6pm Saturday night.

Now, things are getting even busier. Our "Inaugural Camping Trip" is this weekend and surprise, our mudroom is being started THIS WEEK!!!!!!!! Literally, surprise. The contractor said he wouldn't be able to get to us until July, then told us the week before last he MIGHT be able to do it in May and as of last Thursday he's starting this Wednesday. Danny has a whole deck to tear out in the next 2 days. We seem to thrive under chaos so this is just par for the course.


  1. So how do you feel after 25 days of the Whole30... did you notice any changes, any successes?

  2. I LOVE the Cherry Lime LaCroix. I like to put in limes and maraschino cherries with it, yum! Sounds like a fun weekend!

  3. I just want to squeeze his cheeks. Sleeping babies are just too cute. Your weekends exhausted me just reading it.
