Just a fun way to share my thoughts and recap our weekend shenanigans.
Birthday success: My husband was really surprised by the donut cake and loved it. Definitely getting the cake again for future birthdays. And his birthday party was a success. It was so nice to have our friends and family over. We had a fire going, people playing cornhole, and the kids had fun on the trampoline. I even played a few rounds of flip cup, which I haven’t played in years. 😉 It was just a really nice night, not to mention the perfect weather we had. My husband said he had a great time, and I’m happy it was a success.
Leftovers: We rarely eat leftovers. My husband just isn’t a fan of them, and honestly, I’m not either. I’m usually not in the mood to eat the same thing several nights in a row. But, when you make a bunch of food for a party, and there’s leftovers, you eat them! The good thing was that my husband was so busy socializing that he didn’t really get to eat anything on Saturday night. So yesterday he had no problem eating leftovers all day long. And after making all that food – I was all for taking a day off from cooking. I also learned that I can make decent creamed chicken and BBQ pulled pork – we’ll definitely be repeating those dinners in the future.
Ohio weather: Hey there, 50 degrees! The weather forecast for the rest of the week is looking fabulous. Sunny and 50-70 degrees every day. THIS is fall in Ohio, and I love it. I’m about to head to the park shortly for a run – I love running in this weather. It may even be cool enough this evening to turn on the fireplace.
Clean house: I’m a neat freak. OCD. Everything has it’s place and nothing can be out of place. I vacuum daily. It’s just how I’ve always been since I was a kid. Growing up my bedroom was always immaculate. I don’t know why I am this way, but it is what it is, and my husband has learned to deal with it. 😀 I get into these cleaning/purging/organizing moods a few times a year. They are random, but once they hit, I’m on a mission. The other day I cleaned out all the storage closets, kitchen cabinets, junk drawers. I tossed several bags of trash and took 4 bags to Goodwill. It felt good! I love getting rid of stuff and having an organized house. After the party this weekend, our trash is pretty full, and it doesn’t get picked up until Wednesday. On his way out the door this morning, my husband told me not to get into one of my cleaning moods, because there’s not enough room in the trash. Ha. I think I’ll be good for a few weeks. 😉
Bookworms: After such a busy few days, all I wanted yesterday was to have a chill day. And it’s exactly what I got. I did go for a run at the park in the morning, but the rest of the day we all hung out at home, watching football and relaxing. By the end of the night, Sunnie was curled up beside me reading her book. It was the perfect way to end the weekend.
