Weekend Recap: Tequila Makes Me Happy

Like usual, the husband and I had a great weekend!  I do really like my job and the people I work with but I always get a little down on Sunday evening because I enjoy our weekends so much.  But I'm not retiring any time soon and my lottery tickets aren't paying off so I kind of need it.  Time does go by at warp speed now though so at least Friday will be here again faster than it takes me to drink a bottle of wine. For the record that's pretty quick.
 
And now onto my weekend... 

Shopping Fun 

 
1. I found this card while we were grocery shopping Friday night.  It's one of those over-the-top big cards that plays a cheesy song when you press it, but even better is the dog who looks exactly like Milo did when he was a puppy! I was with hubby but this card will be mine (and then his).

2. I have a thing with chapsticks.  As in I have way too many.  Currently I'm obsessed with the eos 'eggs' (hubby totally scored points by putting two new flavors I've never tried in my stocking!) but I also  love it when I can get a little color with the moisturizer.  Enter Maybeline's Baby Lips - it adds just a hint of pink color and goes on silky smooth.  They have a bunch of couloirs, check them out and let me know what you think.

3. Stuck at a light with sun shining in and my newish sunglasses on = selfie. Enough said.

4. Our friends are expecting their first bundle of joy any day (today is the actual due date) and I couldn't resist picking up this Valentine's Day onesie.  That baby already has daddy wrapped around her finger!
 

Vodka vs. Tequila

  
On Saturday K and I discovered Brisk's Arnold Palmer mix (well it's a 'fusion' of iced tea and lemonade, we're not entirely sure that Brisk knows they made an Arnold Palmer in a can) and at only 40 calories a serving, it was necessary to then add vodka.  Tasted great.  Then I decided to try it with tequila. Also great.  Tequila makes me happy though so might stick with that.

Oh and Brisk, K came up with a great campaign for you: slap Just Add Vodka on the can and sales will likely double.  Or triple.  And she deserves half.  And I hooked it up so I'll need a cut too.  We can discuss the details later.
 

Lazy Sunday

 
  Woke up without any hint of a hangover and was out of bed before 10am!  

It was the perfect lazy morning... we had breakfast, baileys coffee and watched a movie.  I checked out some blogs and had another coffee.  Then I did some meal prep (above left photo shows my veggie prep station... I may or may not totally set it up in front of the TV and watched the wedding and honeymoon episodes of Bones).  
 
Kick-off called for Caesars and sausage rolls (we were out of rimmer and celery so I tried a pickle, it worked ok, but I really wish I had pepperoni) and then hubby made us a tasty dinner.  

Next weekend will be a bit different; my book club is heading out of town Friday night and we are going to an amazing (so I hear) spa on Saturday.  It is a no talking spa which might be tough.  Or amazing?  All I know is I'm super excited, I always have a blast with these girls :)

I hope you all have a great start to the week!

  1. I totally know what you mean when you say you get down on Sunday. I used to work for a place that I absolutely hated, it was really bad. So bad that I it was horribly depressing. Needless to say I've been out of that crazy situation for years... thankfully! Weekends are the best! So glad you had a good weekend!
    I just started up a new link up called "a condensed version of my weekend" and would LOVE if you wanted to link up! Happy Monday!
