The Weekend In Pictures!

What a great week! It was Jordan’s birthday on Thursday and mine on Friday. We were blessed with snow in Houston! It’s only snowed in Houston a handful of times during my lifetime so it was a great gift when I woke up to snow on my birthday! The weekend was a continuation of our birthday celebration.

Saturday morning was still a bit chilly and we woke up with frost on the ground.
Our pup’s name is Snowflake and we learned that she does NOT like the snow or frost. She stayed curled up indoors lol.
Jordan and I had free movie passes so we watched Coco. Y’all, I was a sobbing mess but I loved it!
After our date, we got home and found a package on our door step. My father-in-law got me this!
Once the frost melted and the sun came out, Jordan and I went on an evening walk with Snowflake.
After some puppy eyes, Jordan agreed to a Sunday morning walk!
It was chilly but the sky was beautiful!
After church, we went to Plucker’s with Jordan’s parents for another birthday lunch.
Their boneless wings are MASSIVE. We may have to share a plate next time.
Plucker’s was near the mall so Jordan and I went for a walk and found a candy store. How neat are these jelly beans?!
We went to the mall for a planner and ended up with so much. This is why we avoid the mall lol.
We ended our birthday weekend with cheesecake from the Cheesecake factory. I love their Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough slice.

We had so much fun celebrating our birthdays with family and friends. I can safely say that I ate ALL THE FOODS! My back did decide to have a small pain flare up so I’m focusing on good form while running and cycling this week.

How was your weekend? Did it snow where you live?

The Weekend In Pictures: Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone had a fun Thanksgiving and spent it eating delicious food with loved ones! My break was lovely and I couldn’t be happier with it. It was definitely hard to get out of bed this morning and make my trek to work.

I did a Turkey Burn class on Thanksgiving morning to start my day off right. Snowflake wanted to get in the picture too!
Not many pictures from Thursday but Jordan and I drove to visit my mom on Friday.
My mom got a new dog named Tyson!
My mom’s neighbors had cows and horses roaming around and Tyson loved watching them.
Tyson was incredibly sweet and did so well on the leash!
Jordan and I followed our Saturday after Thanksgiving tradition and went to the Autoshow!
Of course I forgot to take pictures of any cars but I got a picture of a smoothie we shared while looking through the swap meet!
We set up our little Christmas tree and some decorations around the house.
While waiting for the A&M game to start that evening, we got sucked into the Auburn and Alabama game. So good!
Sunday morning was our usual lazy breakfast and church. After church, I made pork chops for lunch.
While the pork chops were in the oven, I chopped veggies for the week.
Lunch was pork chop with veggies! We ate off paper plates because I was over all the dirty dishes lol.
I ate half of this as a mid-afternoon treat.
Closed out my weekend with a live DJ ride in my camo leggings!

It was so nice to visit my mom and enjoy the cooler weather out in the country. Jordan and I came home with so many tamales so I think we’re set until Christmas. I hope you had a blast this weekend and your Monday is off to a good start!

It’s Okay To Ask For Help

Good Morning! I’m coming at you at a different time than normal but it’s because life has been terribly crazy for the past few weeks. Illnesses and unexpected family emergencies have had me running around like a crazy person. My husband was in the hospital this weekend as well so it’s been tough. Luckily he’s doing much better and he’s home!

The Weekend To Recover

Well, it’s been a while since I stopped by! Unfortunately, Jordan’s grandmother passed away last weekend so we were swept up in everything. We spent most of the week in Kansas to pay our respects. His grandmother was a great woman and was well loved by everyone. She welcomed me in as soon as she met me and always took care of Jordan like she was his own child. Mrs. Bonnie Jones will be missed.

Jordan and I arrived back to Houston Thursday night. As soon as we landed, I high tailed it to the gym to get some fresh air. Traveling makes me anxious and this was a rough time so I needed a bit of familiarity to ease my nerves. Continue reading The Weekend To Recover

Celebrating My Dad For Father’s Day

Father’s Day is THIS weekend. Where has the time gone? It’s so crazy how fast these past few months have flown by for me. Time flies when you’re having fun, I guess! Since we’re going into Father’s Day weekend, I figured I would share a little bit about my dad today.

At my 5th grade graduation. He wasn’t one for pictures, lol.
