A Mellow Weekend & Is It Summer Yet?


I hope everyone had as relaxing of a weekend as I did!

Torrance actually flew out Friday afternoon to Daytona for the weekend with his uncles and met some people down there to watch the races and hang out. It poured all day yesterday I guess so the race actually got canceled (for the first time in 54 years!) but they did get to go to the race on Saturday and go down on the track and got to put his name (or initials) on the finish line!

They had fun! They left early this morning (his flight just landed here!) and he is really looking forward to working all day 😉

So, with him being gone it meant I had the house to myself this weekend….well me and a brown dog.

My weekend ended up looking like this:

  • sleep in on Saturday
  • do some cleaning/laundry
  • ran 2 miles on Saturday
  • watched 3 movies (including Mean Girls! I just love that movie)
  • Eat (feels like I spent the entire weekend eating!)
  • Watched almost an entire Big Bang Theory marathon on TV
  • took Kona on some long walks yesterday since it was nice out

I ventured out of the house once to go grocery shopping and stop by a local store that was having a dress sale where I got some cute stuff. All the dresses were $12 – $18, score!

I was so excited for the striped one and then when I got home and was hanging it up I realized it is not a dress, but a romper instead! (shorts on the bottom) bummer, but it doesn’t look too bad (I usually look funny in rompers) and it will be good to wear to the pool and stuff.

I also bought a few new necklaces ($4 each!) to add to my….collection.

There is probably a better way that I could organize my necklaces than in a giant pile.

I have to tell you though, buying some new dresses made me pretty excited for summer! Now I just need to re-up my swimsuit stash. That is a whole ‘nother beast though.


Since I didn’t blog all weekend, I will share that I did go to training on Friday night, regardless of the tornado warnings. That is true dedication right there since I am terrified of tornados…or weather in general 😉

Our trainer did things a little bit differently – but I liked it! We didn’t do our usual round circuit. Instead, he had 18 stations and we did 6 (each one for 1 minute with a 10 second break, and then the same one another minute) and then we took a group water break and did 6 more, etc. So we didn’t actually circle the room and do each move multiple times. It was kind of nice to switch it up like that!

I may wait until tomorrow to head to training again so I can hang out with Torrance tonight… we’ll see how the day goes!


Have a good Monday! Dont forget; anyone who participated in Foodie PenPals for February, tomorrow is reveal day! Cant wait to share all the goodies I got (and sent!)

  • Tried any new recipes lately?
  • What gets you excited for summer?
  • Have any fun travel plans coming up?
    Maybe Alaska in July and Vegas in August for a work trip! But there will be some mini trips this summer too!

  2. Cute striped romper!! I would love that although I agree that they are definitely hard to pull off. What steals. I am so ready for summer. I want the warm weather. I’m planning to visit my friends in the Dominican Republic at the end of March. Just waiting for my passport with my married name to come back!

    Haha oh Andrea, my jewelry “box” looks exactly the same. Sometimes I’ll take the time to organize everything into little sections and corners, but within days it’s destroyed.

    Looks like you had a nice weekend alone! Sometimes its nice to just chillax all on your lonesome

    • Haha glad to hear I’m not the only one!! 🙂 sometimes I organize it too and pull them all apart but it doesn’t last long!

  6. I am SO ready for summer! Oh, my goodness! I need warm weather to get here QUICK!

    You scored some AWESOME deals and I love your picks. Summer dresses make me so happy! I also love your schedule for a weekend alone. It looks very much like what I would do.

    P.S. Mean Girls is the best.
