Weekend in Review | Hobbies and Netflix

Ugh, Monday already?! How you come so fast, right? But hey, only 3.5 days of work this week for this gal over here! Memorial Day weekend, here I come 🙂

Sorry, I didn’t get many pictures from this weekend!


Twas a dreary week here in MN. I  had a Dr. appointment at 10:30 am so I tried to sleep as much as I could since I was fasting. This girl wakes up HUNGRY all the time so the less time I could feel my stomach growling, the better. Appointment went well and then I headed over to the lab to get my blood drawn. Little did I know I would run into a friend back there! Back in October, we (plus another friend) ran the Twin Cities 10 miler together. She saw me and said she wouldn’t draw my blood but would talk with me while her coworker did it. Good thing too because for some reason she could not stick my vein. I don’t have a problem with needles but once you start digging in my arm for vein (and I am ungodly hungry), a person starts to sweat a little bit. She finally got it and within 10 minutes I was out of there. Once I got home I ate some lunch, watched the new episode of The Handmaid’s Tale, picked up some dog turds and mowed the yard. PS – self propelling lawnmowers are THE.BEST. First time getting in 10,000 steps with my new Fitbit. After a quick shower, we headed to a friend’s house to eat some dinner. They made homemade carnitas, guacamole, coleslaw and southwest ranch sauce. He also fried up some shells. It was awesome food! Then we just hung around a bit and had some cocktails.


100% me in that photo above 🙂 Both Bill and I were pretty lazy on Saturday morning. We watched some episodes of The Challenge and then decided to get out of the house. We headed to the VFW right by our house for a couple of drinks and then to a newer place about 15 minutes away for dinner. I got the fajitas but I don’t think I would get them again. They were pretty pricey and I don’t think they were worth it. Next time I will definitely go with something else and save my fajitas for our favorite Mexican restaurant.


Bill headed off early to go fishing with his dad and I stayed home with the animals. I should have meal prepped and gone to the grocery store buuuut I didn’t. I got sucked into the second season of Sense8. Have you seen it? It is such a crazy show! It’s on Netflix, FYI. After a bit, I headed over to Bill’s parents to have some dinner. They actually caught some fish so we were able to fry those up!

I really wanted to get my garden going this weekend but with the rain, we just couldn’t make it happen. I am hoping that the weekend after Memorial Day we can get it done! Hope your weekend was great! This holiday weekend we are heading up to Fargo to spend some time with my family at their lake place. We are excited to get away for just a little bit and enjoy the lake!

Be sure to check out Our Day at Busch Gardens!
