3 day weekend update!

Isn't it nice going back to work on a Tuesday?! I think that 3 day weekends should totally be mandatory, just sayin'! 

Linking up with Dana, Leeann and Sami is quickly becoming one of my faves. I think it's a great way to find new blogs, and update your readers/friends on your fun weekend activities.


Friday:

It was a half day at work for me (my DR was out of town! :)) so after work I headed home to grab my bag and Bink and head to see Nate. 

He had to work that afternoon, so while he was working, I caught up on Pretty Little Liars on Netflix. I'm way behind, so don't even think about spoiling it for me. ;)

When he got home, I had dinner ready for us. I made cheddar garlic chicken, mac & cheese and green beans. No, I didn't get a picture. Which is incredibly unusual of me.

It was a pretty low-key night. We just watched some baseball and enjoyed the night in.

Saturday:

Nate and I woke up early, as usual. I made us coffee and strawberry muffins for breakfast. 

I was out in the living room reading, and he came out and said he wanted to rearrange his room. When I moved out of my apartment, he took a bookshelf off my hands so we didn't have to fit something else into storage.

Soooo, we spent all day Saturday organizing, throwing away, and rearranging his room. We only stopped for a lunch break of tuna sandwiches.

His room looks real good now, and looks like there's a lot more room now. I even have my own nightstand now. ;)

Later that night, the Texas Tech (Nate's alma mater) was playing their first football game of the season, and the station it was playing on Nate doesn't get with his cable package.

So, we got ready and headed down the street to BWW to have some dinner and take in the game.

 
Wings and football. This is now what my weekend life will consist of for the next couple of months.

While there, I was scrolling through my IG feed, and realized it was the beginning of the month, and the new photo a day challenge was starting. I hadn't done it in a couple of months, and decided I wanted to try again. So, let's hope I can finish this one!


The first photo prompt was "me" - I like to be silly. ;)

Sunday:

Nate had to work early that morning, so I was headed home to spend the day with my BFF doing "best friend" things.

That's what I like to call it anyway.

But before I headed home, I just HAD to make a pit stop at Starby's for a pumpkin spice latte. 


It was 90 degrees out, and I had a hot coffee. I don't know what in the world I was thinking.

It was however, perfection in a cup. I was super excited. I love pumpkin flavor.

A lot of people on twitter and IG seemed surprised I already got one, but let me tell you - Starbucks doesn't have it on the menu yet, but they totally have the ingredients to make one. Go ahead and ask for one, I'm SURE they'll grant your wish. ;)

You can thank me later.

Jill and I headed off to our fave place to eat lunch, went and had ice cream at Baskin Robbins and we were off to the dollar movie theater. We love this place. How can you beat a $1.25 price for a movie?

Magic Mike was showing, and we were all about it.

Not sure how I waited so long that it was in the dollar theater, but I did. I'm glad I saw it.

WHEW!!! That's all I'll say about that. ;)

We headed to hang out with my sister later that night. We ordered pizza, had some beers and played dominoes. It was quite fun, and yes, I kicked domino ass.

Monday:

Ahhh, I actually slept in. It felt so nice. Although, my alarm did go off at 7 am because I have it set for weekdays and forgot to turn it off Sunday night. Oops! Luckily, I was able to fall right back to sleep.

I made a Starbucks run for the fam, and we headed to see them for a little Labor Day cookout.

Nate come over after work, and we all watched the baseball game while munching on burgers and hot dogs. How's that for American for ya??

I rode with Jill to pick up her daughter (who was with her dad for the weekend) and it is quite a drive, so I had to kick back and relax. 


I've read a chapter of coursework in my Biology class, and now I'm trying to figure out blog posts to schedule. I'm still in a bit of a funk, and am at a loss for post ideas.

How was your weekend??

LOL at the pic of the PSL! Love it! You are too funny :)

Nicole said...

Sounds like my kind of weekend! I LOVE going out to eat and watching football games with my husband. It's super low key and boring, but it's one of my favorite things!

Lauren said...

Great weekend! I also had to stop for a pumpkin spice latte(iced because it's over 90 degrees here in FL lol) :-)

Jaz said...

Can I just say that this post made my morning. I don't know if it was the picture of your PSL or the fact that you referred to Starbucks as Starbys. Haha! Sounds like you enjoyed your holiday weekend :)

Jessica Renee said...

Glad you had a fun weekend!! :) 3 day weekends are my FAVORITE! And seriously YUM for pumpkin spice! I want one but I usually try and wait until the weather is cool or it's just not the same :p

lil desiqua said...

Wow- what an eventful Labor Day Weekend! I'm happy for you that you got your own night stand! And PSL! I think I have to wait for Magic Mike on DVD... still haven't seen it and can't find it playing anywhere near me!

Sami said...

Totally agree on the mandatory 3 day weekend! It was the best! Oh and I had a half day Friday too! Those should also be required ;) I can't believe you waited so long to see Magic Mike, I saw it opening night and loved it! :)

I'm glad I'm not the only one who couldn't resist grabbing up a Pumpkin Spice Latte as soon as they came out...delicious!

JKT said...

Sounds like a LOVELY weekend :) I finally went and saw Magic Mike at our $1.75 theater too....wow oh wow- that is all I have to say too ;)

That sounds like a fun weekend. Don't you just love the three day weekends? Starbucks also has the peppermint lattes but I just can't seem to bring myself to order one until November. I'll be getting a pumpkin one however, tomorrow. It's fall now!

Sounds like a good weekend. I vote three day weekends every weekend. I am very into getting a lot done on all the time off. And I've heard a zillion people talk about PLL and I feel like I should start...although I'm not sure I'd be able to stop...I will marathon it with those teen shows like Dawson's Creek and One Tree Hill...hm. I guess that's a guilty admission.

Aubrey S. said...

Yay for long weekends. Looks like you had a great, low-key weekend. And yay for pumpkin spice. I'm so glad that it's fall again...even if it's 90+ degrees here too.

So jealous of your long weekend. Sounds like it was a good Labor Day weekend for you!
