Weekend Recap, a day late...

We had "Spring Break" this weekend. It's in quotation marks because we only had off Friday and Monday. So, basically we just had a long weekend.

And a long weekend it was...I crammed so much into this long weekend I need a weekend to recover from my weekend.

Friday I got up early to head into the Amish Farmer's Market with mom. It's about 15 minutes away and seriously dangerous. They have such amazing baked goods and cheese dips and.....donuts.....ugh. Sooo phenomenal. We were super excited to go and I was drooling just thinking about what I was going to eat. Unfortunately, we're both idiots and didn't think about the fact that it was Good Friday. Whomp, whomp. Closed. So we headed to the bagel shop instead, which actually has the best New York bagels around.

Then, Mike and I headed to the gym to get our lift on. Shoulders day. #beastmode. And...I ran for 30 minutes!!! Grrrr, I hate cardio.

The rest of the night was pretty low key. We came home and fixed dinner and then I relaxed for the rest of the evening.

During our little escapade on Friday, I convinced my mom to do Easter dinner on Sunday at noon so we could have time with Mike's parents, too. She had a busy morning and didn't want to be rushed, so I told her I would do everything. Saturday I woke up early to meet her at our little Farmer's Market in town. Nothing like the Amish one, but.....it worked. Then, we headed back to food prep for Easter dinner.

Mike had a dodgeball tournament that afternoon so I met him at the gym and watched his team get shut out by a bunch of little teenager punks. haha. Truthfully, it was all in fun to raise money for his best friend's softball team. Everyone pretty much knew each other so there was no drama and it was a ton of fun. It's hysterical to watch these guys play dodgeball.

We came home and took a little nap before dinner. I swore I was headed to bed early since I had a long day the next day....until I saw the neighbors outside partying. Ugh....they get me every time. Even when I walked over I said...."2 beers and I'm done" but clearly that didn't work. Many Fireball shots and beers later, I shuffled back to my house, drunk ate a bunch of macaroni salad (which I didn't realize until yesterday when I wanted to eat it), and drug myself in bed.

8 am Sunday morning was not fun. But....I got my ass out of bed and went to Mom's to get Easter dinner ready. A cup of coffee and egg sandwich later I was good to go. Dinner was a success, if I do say so myself. We had ham, macaroni and cheese, sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes, fruit salad, green bean casserole, some applesauceish shit, and rolls. YUM!! Then we headed to Mike's parents and had a cookout. Burgers and hot dogs, potato salad, coleslaw, bacon wrapped shrimp. AWESOME!!

Then, we came home and took a nap before Game of Thrones. That was a fairly early night despite the Vodka Monsters we had to try to keep us up.

Yesterday we had a Date Day. We started off at the gym, that's right, again!! And thanks to my loving husband pushing me so hard I can't lift my arms today. lol. Then we came home and changed and headed to the movies. We saw Captain America. Very good. Then headed to our local Happy Hour hangout for some dranks.

Last night was an early one for me, too. I was exhausted. This weekend killed me.

Now on to the rest of the week....


  1. Sounds like a blast! I was exhausted as well yesterday and we didn't do nearly as much as you guys!

  2. Sounds like a good weekend! I am all over the cheese dip! Shoulders and back are my favorites to train. Get it girl!

  3. You're too funny! Only 2 drinks? Never!! I feel free you having to wake up early on Sunday and be productive!
