Our Lazy Weekend...

Sunday, June 23, 2013

With this being the first official weekend of summer, we celebrated by staying indoors and in pajamas. This wasn't planned, and it wasn't how we really wanted to spend the weekend. However, we both apparently needed the rest.

Friday afternoon I went to the dr after dealing with sharp stabbing pains in my back and shoulder for two days. He said it was either severely pulled muscles, or pleurisy. However, since I hadn't been sick, he thought it was the pulled muscles. He sent me home with three prescriptions and said I needed to take it easy and rest for a few days. Of course I had to ignore his advice for a few hours because the dawgs were playing for their chance to play the College World Series Championship Game. I got home in time to see the start of the 3rd inning. And I got to witness their 3rd win in the CWS!!! Tomorrow night is the first game of the championship, and you better believe we're gonna be watching. All I can say is, #HailState!!

The Mr picked up dinner because the meds had kicked in and all I wanted to do was sleep. And sleep is exactly what happened. I crawled in the bed at 7:30 and didn't wake up until 6:30 the next morning. And after three nights with little to no sleep... it was needed.

Saturday morning after we finally got out of bed, we took to our favorite seats in the house and began operation lazy weekend. Most of the morning was spent watching TV, and a cat naps were had, too. We had a some sandwiches for lunch and then it was back to napping. In between napping I checked out the latest Southern Living Magazine. I can't wait to try out some of the recipes I found.

We finally got up to cook some dinner around 5:30. We made homemade lasagna and it hit the spot. And thankfully we have enough for leftovers. Have you ever made homemade lasagna? I'm not talking about getting the pre made pan in the frozen food section of the grocery and letting it thaw and bake. I'm talking about putting it all together. And it's really an easy recipe, and one your family will enjoy. Want the recipe, click here.

After dinner we watched Pitch Perfect, and it was okay but really not the best movie we thought it would be. What's with all the previews making these movies look awesome and then they turn out to be just a blah movie? Regardless, we were back in the bed at 9 for the night. And it didn't take us long before we were out like a light. His head cold meds and my prescriptions seem to make us zombies and has us fighting to stay awake after we take them.

Sunday morning I felt a little better, or my back was still numb, and I made some breakfast for the Mr and I. And y'all wouldn't believe the amount of people who still don't know what pigs-n-blanket are... so I'm going to give the three ingredient recipe today. It's so easy, you'll be making them every morning for breakfast.

What you'll need:
crescent rolls
cocktail sausages
shredded cheese

What you'll do:
Layout your triangles, and cut them in half. Sprinkle cheese on them, and then add a cocktail sausage to the larger end of the dough. Start rolling from the larger end and roll to the smaller end. Cook on 375 for 13 - 15 minutes or until golden brown.

These are perfect for appetizers, tailgates, and of course breakfast. And your kids will love to help you create them.

The rest of the afternoon we did some relaxing, and some laundry. For dinner we're having crockpot BBQ chicken. You can find that recipe by clicking here. We have plenty of TV to watch tonight before bedtime. And that my friends, will round up our weekend.

What did y'all do to celebrate the first weekend of summer? I hope it was a little more eventful than our weekend. =)


  1. I'm floored people don't know about pigs in a blanket! Those things are amazing!

    I am glad to hear that it's just a pulled muscle and not something worse. AND happy you got major rest! Sounds like a perfect weekend to me! Sorry Terry is sick, so hopefully he bounces back fast!

    Here's to another week....another week of you teasing me with amazing recipes...

  2. Girl! I love pigs in the blanket.

    I will be watching the game tomorrow night but I'm not telling who I am rooting for! ;)

    Hope you feel better, miss!

  4. This is verry good to feel relax on sunday. Was it too early prepare dinner round 5:30. Yes I was made homemade lasagna. Mostly I avoid frozen food part of the food store and letting it thaw and bake.

  5. Morning my lovely sister! Sounds like a really good weekend of relaxation. Are you feeling better or are you headed back to the doc? I tried to text you all weekend but I think my phone is officially on the outs. So I may not have gotten to chat with you but we were certainly thinking about you! I started looking through my SL magazine this weekend too. I think this was the first month since we've moved that it actually arrived on time. You know what girl? I know that calendar says it was the first weekend of summer, but I feel like it has been summer for at least a month lol

  6. I love pigs in a blanket, and weekends of relaxation. They are really necessary.

    I've never bought pre-made lasagna, I always make my own.
