The Weekend

Y'all.  IT'S MAY!!!!!!  This means I have exactly 1 month of school left as of tomorrow.  How in the world did we get here so fast?  It feels like just yesterday I was writing this post, about how excited I was for school to start.  And now here I am more than ready to say hello to summer. In jut 5 short weeks I will be!

Alrighty so the weekend was VERY uneventful.  I spent most of my time relaxing and reading and reading some more.

Here were a few of the highlights:


- Workday at school which meant no kiddos and an extra long lunch courtesy of Panera.  If you haven't had their BBQ Chicken Salad you're missing out.  It's delicious.

- Watched the Amazing Race...and was sad to say goodbye to two of my favorites, Brody and Kurt.  But now that they're gone I am officially team Tyler and Korey!

- Did some online shopping!  I NEVER online shop and I have no idea what has gotten into me lately but I've got 3 different things coming in the mail and I am so excited for them!  The first is a dress from The Well Clothing Boutique.  I'm not gonna share the dress yet, because I plan to wear it to my friends wedding at the end of the month. But I am so excited for it!

I also have jumped on the Colour Pop train and ordered 3 different lipsticks.  I'd show them off but they're doing a flash sale this weekend and there is an online "line".  Yesterday I hoped on to look at a few other colors and the wait was over an hour!!  Which is just nuts if you ask me.


- Did some spring cleaning.  My roommates new puppy has taken a liking to peeing on my bed.  Jenny researched why and apparently it's because she "likes me" and wants to "protect me".  Whatever the reason I was not happy when she did it not once, but twice on Saturday.  Thankfully it didn't get down to my mattress but still, I was not amused.

- Went to the grocery store and stocked up for the week.  I have a recipe I'm gonna make this week that I am super excited about.

-Purchased my first contouring palette.  I got a drugstore brand to start with, the Maybelline Facestudio Master Contour palette.  I plan to practice practice practice and then invest in a more high end palette.

- Read more of m book, The Lake House.  Y'all I'm hooked.  IT was super slow at first but I can't stop.  I'm actually trying to hurry and finish this post and a few others so I can get back to reading.

- Started watching the AMC show TURN on Netflix.  It's about spies during the American Revolution. The history nerd in me is loving it!


-Basically full of more reading and lots of laundry.  And I didn't leave the house once that day.  Oh and ice cream, lots of ice cream.

- GAME OF THRONES.  Enough said.


Another uneventful and yet throughly enjoyable weekend! :)

Happy Monday friends! Linking up with Biana!


  1. Yay for great books - not so good on the dog really liking you and peeing on your bed - that's awful! Hope you have a great start to the week! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. Your weekend sounds a lot like mine! Chris is going to be out of town next weekend, and I'm seriously going to try and not go out of the house one day! It'll be fun to see if I can make it happen! So glad that you're liking The Lake House! The only other Kate Morton book that I read started off really slow too, but I ended up loving it!

  3. Totally didn't leave the house on Sunday and I was more than ok with that. Sounds like you had a wonderful and relaxing weekend which is well deserved! Crazy that you're almost done with school, how exciting!! Yay for a new contouring palette, you're gonna have to let me know how you like it as far as drugstore brands go. I just bought my first few lipsticks from Colourpop and am so excited. I missed the sale by 15 minutes, but ended up only spending $30 for 6 lipsticks!!

  4. Ohh a long lunch at Panera is always a good lunch! And you'll have to let me know how you like your contouring palette. I'm still nervous to try it out! I'll have to check out The Lake House too! Happy Monday! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  5. Panera is always delicious - I haven't tried that salad but it sounds good! I read a ton, too, this weekend. It was just so nice to relax!

  6. Haha our Sunday sounds the same. Didn't leave the house once. That's so exciting that you only have one more month of school!

  7. OMG that ice-cream! What is in it? It looks amazing!! Super unfortunate the pup has taken such a liking to you. However, I suggest buying a natural spray cleaner that has properties to "discourage" dogs from peeing in areas. It has work for my pup. I use Nature's Miracle. They have it at petsmart but I suggest amazon or a farm supply store because the price was way jacked up at petsmart.

  8. oh my gosh, i'd be furious if a dog was peeing on bed no matter the reason! i'm so glad you're liking the lake house, you make me excited to keep reading/listening!


I love hearing from anyone who stops by! Leave me some love and I will be sure to do the same! :)
