Weekending - First One In March

Monday, March 6, 2017

OMG yes. #funny

Good Monday morning people! This weekend went by so fast. I barely blinked and it was time to flop on the couch for the first time all weekend, watch The Walking Dead and hit the sack. Weekend over. Not much time for relaxing or sitting around. No time for getting anything done in my house or prepping meals for the week. I have come to the conclusion that now that the weather is warm I will have to make more of an effort to get these things done on the weeknights because the last place I want to be is inside my house when it's 70 and sunny on the weekend.

Friday night I stayed in, drank some wine, used up the last of my winter firewood and watched bad TV. I am sure that since I did that it will snow this weekend. Saturday morning came early. Had to be at the Lacrosse field at 8:30 a.m. for the first game of our season. Ava did great. She played goalie the first half and killed it. She played middie the second half and also did great. I am so proud of her, she gives everything her all and never complains! They crushed it and won 10-5. I took her to Waffle House and we had a celebratory breakfast. If you live near one I highly recommend the new Hashbrown Bowl. Why is a meal in a bowl always so satisfying? The rest of the day was spent getting ready for  the Father Daughter dance for Ava. Nails and hair took up the afternoon and they were off to an early dinner before the dance. Pleasant surprise...My ex actually came over early and fixed the lift gate on my truck that has been broken for 2 months. Sometimes he still surprises me.  I adjourned to dinner at Marlow's and a little bar time with my fraands.

Sunday I had an afternoon tennis date. A guy I have been chatting with came over from the other side of town and we met up at my courts and played for a couple of hours. It was a first for both of us having a tennis date and I'd say it was a great success. He was an awesome player and we had a great time. We went out to a late lunch after that at Grub Burger Bar. Good thing we ran around for 2 hours before we dove into Luau Fries which I highly recommend, they were amazing! I opted for the Greek Chicken sandwich and we shared the roasted Brussels sprouts. Wow... they were absolutely delicious! My sandwich was disappointing. I hate it when they serve you a sandwich that is piled so full of stuff that there is no way to pick it up without every single thing falling onto your plate. So attractive for a first date too. Still it was a really nice afternoon. More like that please. I think activity dates might be my new thing!

That about wraps up my weekend. I have a super busy work week again but hoping to squeeze in another date, more tennis and some work on my home office project in the evenings and a small to medium size meal prep. I have still been staying remarkably on track as far as planned meals. Where I feel myself starting to slip is in impulse eating. I am far away from my Whole30 now that I am not thinking before I reach for every single thing. For me that is not an option. Once I get mindless about my food I falter. Back at it this week!

Have a great one!

Linking up with Biana!


  1. Those fries look amazing!!! Sounds like you had a fun date! Ava looks so pretty :) I didn't know that Waffle House did hashbrown bowls?! Their hashbrowns are my favorite thing. I always get them with cheese and a texas melt.

  2. Activity dates sound awesome!

    Hurrah for being pleasantly surprised by your ex fixing shit too.

  3. activity dates sound amazing; hopefully you guys get to meet up again!

  4. I always say we didn't know how good we had it in Kindergarten!! Your daughter's nails look better than mine LOL! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  5. OMG, I had the hash brown bowl this weekend too.......So freaking good! Your daughter looks so pretty and that was nice of your ex.

  6. Now I really want to hit up a Waffle House & try that bowl. I was actually thinking about WH on my drive home from work & I wanted it so bad I could taste the waffles...

    I hope you two have another date! Sounds like a success!

  7. Umm...can I please be an adult in kindergarden. I love to hear that you went on a tennis date! I think doing things out of the norm are the best kinds of dates and it sounds like yours went super well, minus the sandwich at lunch time. boo.
