Chill Weekends Make Me Happy

Morning and happy Monday,  ladies. I hope you had a good weekend. Thankfully mine was much chiller than last weekend and I enjoyed the down time immensely. 

This weekend I… 

… started the weekend of with a lovely date night with Le Husband at our favorite Italian joint. The food was divine as usually and I was stuffed after the fabulous mushroom risotto, lemon ricotta ravioli and of course my favorite, the tiramisu for dessert. #isthereanythingbetterthanagoodmealwithgoodcompany #ilovetiramisu

… watched a movie then went to bed.

… slept in Saturday morning and enjoyed not having to be anywhere. 

… baked my famous Oreo cupcakes for our women's team BBQ. #bettycrockersaycupcake

… enjoyed catching up with one our captains and some how drank a whole bottle of Sangria by myself. 

… did not enjoy the uniform discussion that felt like high school. #howoldareweagain

… went home to a delicious home cooked meal of ribs and macaroni and cheese by Le Husband. 

… woke up Sunday and headed to church and then went to the pool to get some rays. 

… my pool visit was short lived because I forgot my book, sunscreen and hat. #sadzatthepool

… visited Nordstroms to try and exchange my Zella leggings for smalls. After talking with the clerk and remembering everyone's feedback I stayed with the XS and then scooped up a few more goodies since I was in the store. 

… came home and fed the laundry monster.

… practiced BODYPUMP at home. I have the choreography down, I just need to work on my coaching.

… cooked homemade pasta, meatballs and spaghetti sauce with Le Husband for Sunday dinner. #delicious

… prepped lunch for the week, packed my gym bag, read then hit the hay.

How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?

Ohh that homemade pasta and meatballs looks amazing! And kinda jealous you have a Nordstrom you can pop into. I think that's what really saved me from shopping the sale. How do I live in Orlando and there's no Nordstrom? LOL! Glad you had a great, relaxing weekend!

After reading this I want to cook and eat. And then do it all over again. Now that I have grandchildren, sitting by the pool and enjoying a good read isn't happening. Too much fun hanging with them. One day, I will!

Nothing better than a chilled weekend sometimes! Pool time is the best time but if I ain't got my sun cream I am heading back home, I burn so easily it isn't worth it. Those oreo cupcakes look delicious, I want them. The talk of food is making me very hungry over here. I love me some tiramisu!

I read your title as "chili" at first. Clearly I have food on the brain! Glad you had a good weekend! I did all the laundry this weekend too - I hate doing it but I'm so glad when it's all nice and clean!
