Our First Weekend at Home... in Ten Weeks

Morning friends, how's it going? I hope you had a great weekend and are ready to crush it this week. I'm FINALLY back to feeling human and am sooooo ready to get after it.

Here's a look back at my weekend and what I learned.

I learned...

…Being 75% done with Christmas presents in July, is probably one of the best feelings ever. Bought, wrapped and stored in a safe place as of this weekend. #ChristmasinJuly

…Watching BBQ Pit-Masters is all I need to crave ribs. 

…It doesn't take much convincing for Le Husband to whip up some amazing dry ribs. The inner southerner in me was sooooo happy Saturday night. 

…That there are people out there, that spread lies and rumors, just to make themselves feel and 'look' better. 

…Even though my immediate reaction was to post the truth, I realized later, it doesn't really even matter anymore. I know the truth, I know the lies and I know my heart and my worth. If someone wants to try and smear that, go ahead, but I'm 100% comfortable with MY friendships, my life and who I am!

…I am a bit kick-balled out. 

…Four kickball games and four soccer games in one week is a lot of ball playing. 

…It has been waaaay too long since we visited the farmers market. Fresh produce, sustainability and delicious butchered meats…yup the gangs all here :)

…After a long Friday at work, surprise flowers from Le Husband can work wonders for my mental state of mind.

…As can a clean, put together after vacation apartment. PTL!

…I am becoming a slave to shellac nails. I know they aren't cheap, but man my nails look amazing 2+ weeks later. This mani was back on the last day of our cruise and my nails still look fresh. Any color suggestions for my next one?

…Swinging a racquet after a year is fun, yet frustrating. I hit some killer shots at the tennis clinic, but also whiffed and shanked a bunch too. I need to get back on the courts more often.

…Dudes don't like to be hit in the nut-sack.

…I don't like being the one that hit the ball into the instructor. SORRY!

…When the opposing soccer team acts like bush-league jerks I can't help but go back to my college athlete attitude. We were crushing the team 8-2 and ended up winning 14-2 because they were complete douche bags. #sorryimnotsorry #wekickedyourbutt #suckit

…Early bedtime on Sundays are the best.

We are almost the same way with Christmas gifts, just don't wrap them yet!! I love the nails you had for your cruise - shellac is awesome especially when you can get 3 weeks out of them! I like this really pretty coraly/orange OPI color!! Also, if you feel like its getting a bit $$ you can always do it yourself at home (I do that and it's super easy!!)

Sounds like a great weekend - happy you were able to stay at home!

Wow! I can't believe you're almost done with your Christmas shopping! That's amazing, we never even start until November!

Kim @ Kimberleys Quests said...

Presents bought AND wrapped, way to go! I never have my life together enough to make that happen! Those ribs look delicious and nothing is better than a trip to the Farmer's Market!

Happy Monday!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

Whoa, that is pretty impressive about being done with your Christmas shopping already!

It's great walking into a clean apartment. I can't wait to get new bedroom furniture so that my room looks less cluttered.

Thanks for linking up with us. :)

Whaaaaaaaa?? Can you do my Christmas shopping?? I'm such a last minute shopper...but, would LOVE to have Christmas shopping done..or almost done in July!! You GO GIRL!

Michelle F said...

The ribs look good! Making me hungry :)

Seeing the racket made me think of Pickle Ball. It seems to be sweeping America. Have you heard of it? It's a really fun, swiftly moving game. It's actually played with a paddle.

holy cow!!! I can't even imagine having christmas almost done in july! That's amazing and so smart! There is all these good sales going on right now and I should start saving gifts for xmas but I can't even imagine. I've never done that before. Maybe I'll try..... wow.

I just picked up a tennis racquet after several years and it felt good but was very frustrating too!! I guess I need to get my butt out there more often!

Brianne said...

Oh my goodness! Having that much Christmas shopping done already sounds amazing!

Carolyn said...

OMG! I'm obsessed with gel nails too! It's so nice knowing that your nails always look good!

As for the lies - DUMB. I for a fact know that you are a sweet, honest, loving and GOOD person. Anyone that doesn't see that isn't worth anyone's time.

Erin LFF said...

(hope this doesn't double post-- blogger hates me today!) I love that you're done w/ all your shopping already!! That's nuts! I like to be done a few weeks in advance, of course.. but I still love the little bit of craziness of shopping during the actual holiday season. I'm weird, I know ;)

Kristen said...

oh my gosh, teach me your christmas shopping ways!! brilliant.

Emily said...

Wow! Christmas gifts already purchased and wrapped! I wish I could be that organized lol. Pretty flowers and pretty nails! Looks like a great weekend to me ;-)

Katie @ The Macarthurs Lately said...

Dang girl! I need to get on my Christmas shopping! I can't even imagine being 75% done! The thought of buying a giftcard every paycheck did cross my mind the other day, didn't acutally buy one, but it's the thought that counts right? Eh.. I'll get on it.

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

SO JEALOUS of your mad Christmas shopping skills! I got done early last year but not nearly THIS early! TEACH ME YOUR WAYS!
I can't stand liars. I'd rather tell the truth and have someone be mad then lie and feel like shit about not being honest.

Angie said...

You are kicking butt with those Christmas gifts. I so should do that but I won't. I always wait till the last minute and then stress like a mad woman!

The Rachael Way said...

Farmers markets rock!! Love your nails girl!

Brittany said...

Way to go for having most of Christmas presents already! And those robs look soo good.

Terra Heck said...

Flowers from a loved one are always nice. I love me some dry ribs!
Wow, you've really got it going on with Christmas! I've started shopping but wait to wrap until the month of.
