Spring Weekend Shenanigans


My weekend was busy to say the least.

Friday -- We ordered in from our local BBQ joint. If you live in Memphis, you have to give Arlington Barb-B-Que Company a try. The BBQ nachos are to die for.

Saturday -- Tony brought home donuts and coffee. After breakfast, we headed out for a day of errands. Spring finally decided to show up, so I was in capris and sandals with freshly painted toes. We went shopping for baseball supplies, including a new glove for the boy. Since the weather was nice, we dined on the patio at another of our favorite restaurants, Jim 'N Nick's. The kiddos and I went home while Dad shopped for a new lawn mower. I watched the Final Four games, then started watching back to back episodes of Veronica Mars. I'm a little late to the party, but I get it now. I love it!

Sunday -- I cleaned, cleaned and cleaned some more. I cleaned floors, walls, blinds, baseboards, and ceiling fans. I changed light bulbs, moved clothes around in closets and threw stuff away. Throwing stuff away is my favorite. Unfortunately, thanks to the dogs, you can hardly tell I cleaned the floors.



Now, I'm gearing up for a busy week.

There's birthday festivities, 4 baseball games, a 1st grade program, and a movie date.

Wish me luck.

Jim N' Nicks is incredible! I love their BBQ chicken and those cheese butter bomb biscuits! It's probably for the best that there's not one any where near me, otherwise I'd be a tank!

Throwing stuff away is totally my favorite!

As is eating outside on patios. It seems so cosmopolitan...even at the mexican place I go to that basically overlooks a mall parking lot.

Sounds like a great weekend. Hope you had fun! What movie did you see? I'm dying to see The Host, but I'm waiting for my friend to return from her business trip. I'm not sure how I'll sit through a theater in my current state, but I'm willing for some Stephanie Meyer goodness.

We did a lot of cleaning/organizing/throwing away this week too! :)

Yay for Veronica Mars! I was definitely hooked in the beginning, but I can't even begin to explain how good it gets. I was binge watching while pregnant with Nolan and cried every single day. I'm pretty sure I went into a depression when it was over. I CANNOT wait for the movie. So much has to be covered!

Whew. Anyway. Your weekend sounds awesome. We were busy for 12 days straight and I tried to relax this week, but it hasn't worked out for me. Hopefully I'll do a whole lot of nothing this weekend. And maybe some cleaning.
