Weekend Update 1/12/14

Sorry this is so belated…. Better late then never 🙂

My weekend was very relaxing and fun! 

Friday started out with an 8 hour shift at work. Friday evening I relaxed on the couch, should have been studying but I didn’t. Honestly I did try to study but the website that I use was down for the weekend. What a bummer 🙂

Saturday I woke up and cleaned for a couple hours until my cousin arrived.


Saturday morning I let Maisy try my EnergyBits! She loved them!!!

We hung out at my apartment for a while. She asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding that will be in December 2014! I’m so excited!!! 

Once Scott woke up we headed out to lunch at Acapulco’s. I always forget how good their food is. Love the free chips and salsa. 

After lunch we headed to do some shopping. Scott is always an interesting one to go shopping with 🙂 We dragged him into Charming Charlies!



He had fun putting random things on Melinda!


Gotta stay warm!

And Victoria Secret was right there so we had to go in there to!


Yay for the semi annual sale!!! I got sports bras for 75% off!!!

Saturday evening Scott and I had a date night at Sole Mio Ristorante. It is a newer Italian restaurant in Woodbury and it is amazing!!! I have Marsala Ravioli and it was so good! 

Sunday I woke up and did a little online shopping at Jamberry! Katie started selling Jamberry Nails and I am so excited to get my stuff. 

OM06-med SE03-med

I thought these two colors would be perfect for my cruise! By the way did I ever tell you guys…. Scott and I are going on a cruise the first week of February courtesy of my wonderful parents!!! I can’t wait to try out the nails for my trip. Katie talks about them lots of her blog and it sounds like they are very simple to apply and stay on for a long time! I will let you know how it goes!! Also be sure to check out her Jamberry page and order is you want!! They have such a great deal…. buy 3 get 1 free!

I also went grocery shopping sunday. I was planning on hosting a Scentsy party but my scents rep ended up getting sick so I changed my party to an online party! If anyone wants to order you can order through my party online. Your order will be shipped directly to you!!! Check out under the specials, they have tons of bundle deals. And scent packs you can bundle so when you buy 5 you get 1 free. I’m planning on closing my party Wed January 22 so place your order before then if you want!

Those are my warmers that I have and I LOVE them!!!!! I keep them on all the time and my place is always smelling amazing!! 

Since my party was cancelled Scott and I ended up heading to Mark and Sarahs!!! I brought my taco dip and sangria that I had made for my party! 


Yummy sangria!! It was STRONG but really good! 

We also ordered pizza! Have you ever had gyro pizza? OMG we had it at Mark and Sarahs and it was amazing!!!! Best pizza ever!!! I love gyros!


They put Tzatziki sauce on the side and it was so good! 


We also made Nutella turnovers that were so good!!! I added Reese’s in a couple of them! Nom Nom Nom!!!! Who doesn’t love chocolate and peanut butter!!

Monday was filled with lots of studying! I also went to BodyAttack and BodyPump monday evening! When I got home Maisy had so much energy I played tug of war with her FOREVER!!!!


Luckily I was also skyping with my AMAZING friend Cara so time went by fast!! 

Sorry in advance if I’m not posting very much the next couple of weeks! I’m currently studying for my NCLEX (Nursing Boards Exam) so that is taking all of my focus! I will try to drop in and say high at least a couple times!! You can always see what I’m up to on Instagram and Twitter

How was your weekend?

Do you have any fun plans for the rest of this week?


Weekend Update 8/26/13

August has been so busy!! It took me a lot longer to post about all the fun of Ragnar. Last week was busy…. I worked almost everyday and then my day off I watched my cousin Samantha. We went to the zoo 🙂



On Saturday Scott and I headed to Lake City, MN to go sailing. My parents have a weekend/second house in Lake City. It is where they grew up and it is right on a really large lake, Lake Pepin. The Mississippi runs right through Lake Pepin.

Saturday was a perfect day for sailing. There was lots of wind. Sailing is not as fun when there isn’t much wind especially if it is hot.

Our group was a really fun one. Everyone gets along great. We had lots of yummy food and drinks.

Chris was loving the water!!! He is a fish.

The water definitely felt great, it was a hot day out. We have been under a heat advisory since saturday or sunday. The humidity has been very intense lately.

After sailing we headed back home to Woodbury. My mom, dad, Scott and I all met at my parents house to eat some pizza for dinner. Then it was an early bed time.

Sunday was a VERY early morning. I woke up at 5:30am to get ready to head to the Woodbury SAMS club for a 5K run. My mom was signed up to run the half marathon. We arrives at SAMS club around 6am and found out the half marathon was shortened to a 10K (which was actually 7 miles, not 6.4). People were upset about the shortened race at the beginning but my mom was very happy it was shortened when she finished. It was very hot and humid by the time people were finishing the 10K. I was glad I was only running the 5K



I finished with plenty of time to snap a picture of mom finishing her run.



Mom was speedy enough to get first in her age group…. and she was the 4th female to finish.

After the morning race I headed home to relax and enjoy the air conditioning.

Sunday evening we headed to our friends Mark and Sarah’s apartment to cook dinner and watch the VMAs. I was even able to talk Sarah into running the Monster Dash 5K with me!!!! WOOHOO

Monday I headed to my Aunt Vicki’s house to go to a water park with her and Samantha. We went to Bunker Hill Water Park in Anoka. It was really fun. Vicki and I spent most of our time on the lazy river. It was very relaxing and we got lots of sun. The water felt so good because it was so hot and humid.

Today, Tuesday, I am trying to clean and then heading to work for the evening shift (3-1130pm)

Did you guys have great weekend?

Are you staying cool in this intense heat?
