Weekend Stuff!

Heeelllooooooooooooooo! I know, a weekend post on a Tuesday?! For shame. I actually sat down to write this yesterday but hey, got busy. Life.

I had a wonderful weekend - not many plans, but productive. I love days like that!

Saturday, I had kind of a late start, I slept in until past 9, which is about two hours later than I have been! I woke up to overnight oats and beautiful weather.

I lounged around, drank my coffee, and eventually decided that it was time for a WaLk!!

Yeah, I kind of went out in the heat of the day. Call me weird, but the heat doesn't bother me all that much (when I'm outside). I don't mind a little sweat, especially since I'm cold-natured through-and-through.

I met another furry friend!!


When I got home, all I was craving was a smoooootthhhiieee. 1 cup almond milk, 1 cup pineapple, big handful of spinach, topped with granola. 

Also, on a random note: I've been looking for some different glasses frames. I found BonLook through A Beautiful Mess and love the vintage frames! They have a virtual try-on that I was messing with to see if I could pull a vintage look off.

The verdict? I think my face is too narrow for chunky vintage frames, but not sure yet. I'm going to have to try them on in person to know for sure. 

Then it was time for work! It was one of my longer days - I worked 3-9:30. 

Sammich break!!!

After work, I crashed into bed and watched an episode of Mad Men, and ate my newest creation:

The usual yogurt+nut butter+banana combo, but topped with honey/cinnamon/dark chocolate. SO GOOD.

Sunday morning, I woke up around 7:30. For breakfast, what do you know....OATS! The same combo as the past 4 days in a row...peaches and blueberries. Yumz.

I took a walk around 9:30, and the weather was much more forgiving than 11. It was nice being in the cool shade!


Then it was time for work. I only work one Sunday a month, and this day was a mad house! We were so packed and crazy! 

Since I worked 11-3, I didn't sit down for lunch until 3:30 and was about to chew my arm off. My work offers this really good salad: it's spring mix with strawberries, mandarin oranges, candied pecans, bleu cheese, and grilled chicken. I want to make this at home!!

After lunch, Reibs (prounounced *Reebz*, by the way) and I decided we needed to go to the pool!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was so happy to finally get out and relax!

 Commence pool selfies!

I think we can agree that I have the prettiest sister ever?!?! 

 Quick and easy dinner: brown rice, stir-fried veggies, scrambled eggs, salsa, and greek yogurt.

Later, I climbed into bed and ate this beautiful creation:

1/3 cup oats, 1/2 a banana, 1/2 cup water microwaved and topped with peanut butter, cinnamon, honey, and some dark chocolate. 

Eaten while watching the King's Speech! You guys, it is such a good movie!!! I highly, highly recommend it!!

K so I know this is a weekend recap, but I have to tell you about yesterday too cuuuuzzz....because. 

Morning essentials. 

On my morning walk, I found yet another friend. Told you I see forest creatures all the time! 

And THEN I found a nest of baby birds inside of a mailbox!!!!!

The dark spot in the middle of the nest is the baby bird!! There were actually 3 or 4. I really hope that they stay safe, especially because mail goes in and out of there. I kind of want to leave a note for the mail man to be careful!!! They were so cute. 

Okay, last thing...I found Call the Midwife season 1! Netflix does is again. 

I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday!!!!!!!


  1. I love being able to go outside now and feel the warmth hit my skin! I would always rather be sweating and hot than cold....no matter what!

  2. The King's Speech is one of my favorite movies. I saw it in the theater and thought it was fantastic.

    You meet such cute friends on your walks!! I seem to only meet dead animals on the sidewalk. Your walks > mine.

    Okay I love coffee but we don't have a coffee maker. What do you suggest this girl does?? Right now it's just tea.

    1. It was so good! I would watch it again today!

      Bahaha believe me, I've seen my fair share of road kill...bleh.

      Hmmm instant coffee? Not the same at all, but Starbucks has pretty decent instant coffee (besides the price). I would just be content with tea and leave coffee as a treat! Believe me, you don't want to get addicted, haha!!

  3. You and Reebz (hahaha this still cracks me up) are GORGEOUS! And that pineapple smoothie is making me hungry. That granola on top also looks so tempting! Also, all your nut butter on your oats looks so so good omg. And lucky you finding cute friends on your walk! We found my cat while out walking once. He was a little white kitten, and I fell in love. So, I'm all for new friends on a walk :) xx

    1. Aw thanks love! I would have NEVER made a pineapple smoothie if I hadn't seen it on your blog, haha!

      me+nutbutter=true love

      AW that's so sweet! Now I want a new kitten!!!!! Need to start adding for my crazy cat lady future ;) (jk....sort of)

      Have a wonderful day!!

  4. I love the recap!! And the King's Speech was suuuch a good movie :)

  5. Yay for finding furry friends :) :) I've missed you!! ALL of your eats look amazing x 10. And oats for dessert?! GENIUS. I need to get over to the pool! Except, ya know, there is no pool in my town :( And running/walking in the heat? DEATH.

    1. Thanks love!

      You should try the oats for dessert one night, it's amaazzingg.

      Ugh I know!! There are only two times of day I like to walk now: in the early morning, and right before dark. Otherwise I feel like I'm going to evaporate!! Haha!
