Finally Chillaxin'

Morning, friends. Y'all remember when CHILLAXIN' was the phrase that paid? Yeah, me too. I have to say, this weekend was the perfect definition of chilliaxin' and I'm incredibly thankful for the down time. Life is about to get pretty busy, I honestly can't believe August is almost over.

This weekend I…

…finally got my phone semi-upgraded. I've been on a 4 for the past six months and it's sooooo slow. Friday night I was able to get home, so Daddy could work his magic and switch me to his 4s. Hallelu!

…visited with my lovely aunt who was in town.

…slept for 12 hours on Friday night.

…woke up refreshed and hit the gym.

…reached a new high dead lifting :)!

…made an epic frittata for lunch.

…watched tons of LLWS. The kids are so precious, I hate that someone has to lose. 

…joined my family at our pool's annual Crab Feast, in the rain.

…housed a ton of crabs.

…had a blast even though it was a dreary, rainy day.

…drove to Menchie's afterwards because we still needed carbs.

…slept for 12 hours Saturday night #soneededsorested

…drove to Maryland for a kickball game.

…considered leaving the team after a particularly horrible performance. The difference in mentality with many players is really starting to grate on my nerves.

…loved my studly cheerleader and was glad to have him in the stands.

…grocery shopped for the week. #getinmybelly

…played two soccer games.

…got hit in the baby maker, TWICE, within five minutes.

…involuntarily shed a few tears. #ouch

…ate a fantastically delicious and healthy Sunday dinner.

…packed the gym back for two a days.

  1. Girl your weekend was jam packed!! A crab feast sounds amazing and something I need to have in my life!! Sorry to hear about your team and it being frustrating for you!! But your surf and turf dinner would have made up for it for me lol!! Happy Monday! xo

  2. How did you managed to do all of that AND sleep?! Superwoman!

    Thanks for linking up for MMG :)

  3. i drove 5 hours for a bday party and it was 103 outside, got 32 ant bites, slept, and drove bacj. i am SOO tired.

  4. Glad you got some much-needed rest, sweet girl! And woohoo for the record weight lift, new phone and truffle butter (um, YUM!) But oh, so sorry for the kicks to the baby-maker. Ouch! I would have cried too for sure!

  5. wow what a busy and fun weekend!!

    congrats on the new dead weight limit!!

    menchies is my favorite.

    cute blog you have :)

  6. Just reading all that made me tired. You are one busy lady. Glad to hear you got some rest. Sorry to hear about your team. Hope things gets better. That fro yo looks yummie.

  7. two a days? yikes, im luck i force myself for one these days. And yesterday, totally just skipped it. Was just not in the mood. deadlifts, btw, scare the crap outta me. I feel like a couple and there goes my bak. And le guy can't do them much anymore because of his back, man we sound old. Oh wait, we are!

  8. All that food looks so good, though I've never actually had plain crab besides a bite or two. My friend says there is a place called The Crab Shack on Tybee Island that we will have to try.

  9. all that food sounds so good! xo jillian - stop by, im hosting a great giveaway on cornflake dreams

  10. what a great weekend! Except for getting hit in the baby maker...that's no fun!

  11. This made me really want seafood! Congrats on the new deadlift high!

  12. damn girl my version of chillaxing does not look like this haha, but glad you had a great weekend!

  13. Umm...that's what you call Chillaxin?? You're crazy!! haha

  14. We have two very different ideas of chillaxin! I'm glad you enjoyed your weekend though :)

  15. All of that sleep sounds wonderful (happy for you!) Also, truffle butter. Let's talk about the wonder of truffle anything shall we? I am with one of the commenters above at never having eaten crab alone but your photos definitely intrigue me to try it somewhat soon.
    Have a great week xo

  16. And I thought I was productive because I went to the grocery store this weekend! Haha! Looks like a fun (minus being hit in the baby maker.. ouch) weekend!

  17. Mmmmm all of the food looks delicious! Is there anything better than waking up on Saturday morning, rested and ready to go?! I'm such a lame person on Friday nights now... I just want to sleep! Oh, and we watched lots of the LLWS, too -- so proud of the Chicago team!

  18. Love the word Chillaxin'! Sounds like a super fun weekend! :)

  19. I slept for 12 hours Friday night too...sometimes, it's just what you have to do. haha :)

  20. Your Menchie's creation looks delicious!!! I've actually never been!

  21. Love it! I are my way through the weekend and went to the outlet mall. The Menchies by me is really stingy with their sample cups, they only give you one and pour it for you. I prefer a stack of cups and unlimited access to samples. :)

  22. You are always far too productive, makes the rest of us look bad! :-) And black truffle butter?! Yes please!

  23. TRUFFLE BUTTER?!?! OMG...I need that in my life. Good job on your new deadlift weight!


I LOVE LOVE LOVE your comments! Make my p!nk day and leave me some love!
