Rain, Rain Here to Stay. Guess I'll Just Eat All Day

Morning, friends. I hope you had a great weekend. My was supposed to be extremely rainy and nasty, so therefore we were going to be extremely lazy. Well, Hurricane Joaquin decided to play nice and stay out to sea so we just dealt with a lil bit of rain instead of the downpours and high winds that were predicted. Le Husband and I headed out late Thursday night to do our shopping in case we were hit, so we decided to keep Saturday slated as a lazy day and spent the day indoors watching football and eating. Oh my land, did we eat. Since we expected to be stuck inside all day, we planned accordingly with homemade chili, pasta, hot cocoa and spaghetti. Mmm, mmm, mm, it was a deliciously lazy weekend and I loved every minute of it if you must know. #lazyandlovedit #thankyourain #coldanddrearyisgreatforcuddling

+ Friday night was capped off with my CPR Adult/child certification. I am required to be certified to teach BODYPUMP, but I've also had this on my list for awhile. Especially now that we are around our nephews so often. It was very informative and I highly suggest everyone get certified, just to have that knowledge in your back pocket. #icannowsaveyourlife #cprcertified

+ My first hot cocoa of the fall season. The rain brought much cooler temperatures than expected so hot cocoa was a must. 

+ Homemade chili mac on a drizzly Saturday afternoon. #hisandherchiliforthewin

+ Cookies and cream pudding for dessert. #theextrawhippedcreamwasamazing #fancyplatingforfun

+ Cincinnati chili dip we scarfed down while watching seven different college football games. #gobucks

+ Homemade pasta noodles for chili mac and of course, Sunday's homemade pasta dinner. 

+ Three new kindle books I rented from the library. #soexcitedtoread

+ Our couch and my pink blanket where I spent most of Saturday and part of Sunday. #napsohard

+ Cleats from my soccer game on Sunday evening. #ihatelosing

How was your weekend? I'm feeling extra refreshed from the sleep and ready to get after it this week. I hope you have a FAAAAAAABULOUS Monday and enjoy a wonderful week < 3!

I'm glad that it was just rain that y'all got and not a full blown hurricane! Even though you had to prep for it, it should a like y'all ended up having the perfect Saturday because of it! Football and eating, definitely two of my favorite things!

Glad the hurricane didn't hit you guys! The only great thing about lots of rain is that it makes for relaxing lazy days. The chili looks so good!

Haha #napsohard is usually my motto for rainy weekends. Love that you got to chill!

Laura Marie Keenan said...

I was CPR certified about 3 or 4 years ago and I couldn't believe how much the technique had changed! However, I still think I would terrified to actually perform it on anyone...

Elle Sees said...

it was rainy here too! and i made chilli too!! sometimes that's the best thing to do is hunker down and eat! ;)

Kristen @ See You In A Porridge said...

good to hear the weather wasn't insane. the food looks amazeballs and i am so jealous of all the goodies you ate ;) i love me some hot cocoa, i wish i could keep whip cream in the house to add on top but i'd eat it all in one sitting lol

Brianne said...
