Our long weekend in an instagram...

Monday, July 8, 2013

I kept thinking yesterday was Monday. This long weekend had us all messed up. But, I'm so grateful for the extra days with the Mr at home. It was needed and wanted — even if we did sleep all day Friday. So technically, the weekend was Thursday — Sunday, right?

Thursday we went to the lake to visit with our family. It was a little rainy and dreary, but seeing the smiles of family and hearing the laughter of kids had us so thankful for the time together.

Friday, as a mentioned above, was a sleep day. We didn't get out of pjs all day. Of course, all the rainy weather didn't help our motivation, either. I do remember watching a lot of movies between our naps, and somehow I managed to cook dinner before we called it a night and crawled into bed. Yeah, we're such party animals.

Saturday was a little more eventful. It all started with someone ringing the doorbell at 10:30 in the morning. And because we weren't expecting anyone, we just ignored the first ring. However the second time, the Mr did a little snooping. And I finally convinced him to just go open the door and see who it was. Well, it was our termite guy. Ha. T made an appointment with him earlier in the week and completely forgot about it. #itsokaywereold And the good news is... NO TERMITES. #itsthelittlethings

All week I had been watching the Pizza Hut commercial for the $10 anyway you want it deal. So to celebrate no termites, we got P I Z Z A. Btw, Darby and I had been talking earlier in the week about the food we were wanting to eat. Mine was pizza, and hers was a hamburger. I'm not sure if she got her fix, but I enjoyed every bite of my half of the pizza!

We decided to get out of the house later that afternoon and took a trip to CVS. #bigshoppershere We needed to exchange our gas tank for our outdoor fryer, and I wanted some flavors for my water. If you haven't tried these new flavors, you must!

Sunday morning we decided to go grocery shopping. Yes, you read that right, I said "we". And when you bring your better half with you grocery shopping, this is what ends up in your buggy. (For those of you who aren't sure what a buggy is, that's the southern term for "shopping cart".)

That evening we had Stephanie (Plain Chicken) and her husband, Tadd, over for a traditional southern meal. We had fried chicken, loaded mashed potatoes, baked green beans and Plain Chicken's recipe for southern cornbread. I didn't snap a photo of the meal, but you can see Stephanie's picture, here. For dessert I made Brownie Balls.

After dinner the men carried on conversations about cars, Harley's and more while Stephanie and I talked more about our blogs and blogging. I don't know about y'all, but when you find someone who is just as passionate about blogging as you are... it just warms my heart!

And that, my friends, is how our long weekend panned out. We hope y'all had a wonderful and safe holiday weekend!!


  1. Sounds fun! And the brownie ball looks oh so divine!

  2. Guess who is now making fried chicken tonight.

  3. Sounds like the perfect weekend to me! I could use a little rest and relaxation like y'all! Oh and can you just pop on over to Texas and cook dinner for me? You're dishes always looks SO GOOD. Oh and don't get me started on that brownie ball...hello yum!

  4. Looks like so much fun!

    I love that y'all do so many fun things together.

  5. I find it hilarious that you forgot about your termite appt hahahaha Glad everything check out though; that's the best news when you have a termite visit. I am still waiting on my burger; I have it on the menu for Thursday though with corn on the cob and fresh butter beans :-)

  6. Yum. The pizza looks divine. Since Kenlee is dairy free, we only do pizza if they are spending the night at my parents. That looks so good to me!
    And those Brownie Balls. Divine looking. :)

  7. That brownie ball looks deeelightful! Next time you visit Darby can you bring a plate of them with you?

  8. I'm so jealous of Friday's pajama day! I'm going to plan one of those for my family one day soon! An entire day of staying home relaxing...ahhhhh, I like the way that sounds coming off the keyboard. Yeah, we're gonna give that a try soon!

    Sounds like you had a great weekend!

  9. I don't know what a brownie ball is, but it looks delicious!

    So does that pizza. Dang.

    Forgetting about the appointment is totally something I would do. All the time!

  10. Brownie balls! Will you be blogging those? DELICIOUS.

    Hurrah for no termites!

  11. Hi there! You couples really look lovely and happy together, a perfect match! I’m glad you found each other for life. Anyway, while viewing the photos, I certainly couldn’t resist the dessert! It’s truly mouth-watering and a must try! How I’d love to join the party. Just kidding! Keep the kindle of love burning! God bless!
