Weekend Round-Up

by Meghann on July 27, 2014

Happy Sunday!

I hope everyone had a great weekend. It was a very relaxing one around here. In a nutshell we did nothing… and it was awesome.

Friday night Derek and I reviewed the inspection report we received on the new house. Derek had spoken to the inspector before, during, and after the inspection, so we already knew what to expect. The report was very thorough with lots of photos, notes, and a break down of pretty much every square inch of the property. The good news is the house passed with flying colors. There was just a couple of very minor items that came up, otherwise it’s ready for move in. Yay!

Saturday kicked off with a Maddie and mommy 3-mile run, followed by a pedicure, Taco Bus, and Sex Tape.

If you’re looking for a good laugh, then I highly recommend Sex Tape. It’s obviously not going to be nominated for an Academy Award or anything, but it’s entertaining and worth an afternoon movie ticket. Plus, Cameron Diaz and Jason Segal look great. Jason Segal looks like he lost a little weight and bravo to Miss Diaz for choosing to bare all. Honestly, if I had her behind, I would have no problem baring all too.

We stopped at our favorite Vietnamese restaurant for dinner.

Pho Sure

Pho sure.

It’s a tiny hole-in-the wall place about two miles from our house and we love it. We’re there probably every other week getting our pho fill. I think we have a pho problem, but we’re okay with that. We can get dinner for two for under $20 and it’s delicious. It’s a win-win every visit.

Sunday morning was my long run… a whopping 5 miles. Hot damn. Sadly, that might be my longest run for a while. With my upcoming travel schedule for work I’ll be lucky if I can fit any miles in. I’m going to pack my running shoes and my sports bra and hope for the best. I might not get a run in everyday, but if I make it a priority, I can at least get a couple of good runs in. Fingers crossed. 😉

The rest of Sunday comprised of a trip to the grocery store, cleaning the pantry ( I must have thrown out a dozen half-empty boxes of expired cereal), and a nap because, well, it’s Sunday.

By the way, I bought one of those pre-made flatbreads from Publix bakery on a whim (that’s what shopping while hungry will get ya) and it was delicious. I reheated it in the oven at home and served it with a side of marinara sauce for dipping.

There was also a little baking thrown in there. Who needs Pinterest when you have the back of a bag of Nestle butterscotch chips to guide you?

It was all looking good until…

They came out of the oven.

Sigh. Not the prettiest cookies in the world, but they still tasted pretty good. I’ll never be a great baker, but it doesn’t stop me from trying. 😉

How was your weekend? Do any baking? See any movies?
