I NEED my weekend back!

I feel like I'm on a never ending merry go round. Workout, go to work, eat, sleep, start over & then have 2 really quick days of doing other stuff like grocery shopping & then back on the merry go round. It's exhausting.  Have I ever mentioned how I hate grocery shopping? It goes along with my not liking to cook & hating the whole meal planning thing. Dean & I have this conversation every Sunday morning.

 D: What are we going to eat this week? Me: I don't know. Have you thought of anything?

Sometimes he has, sometimes he hasn't. We usually work it out where each of us comes up with something & then we have leftovers. Today I'm trying out a new crock pot recipe. It's called Santa Fe Chicken. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Anywho, Friday night Dean cooked Salmon on his new Primo cooker thing. It was delicious!! We had sweet potato fries with it. Which brings me to another complaint. (Yes, I'm full of them today). I thought sweet potato fries were healthier than regular fries? Apparently not when you buy them in the frozen food section. I bought some yesterday along with regular fries & the regular fries had less calories for the same serving size. I guess I need to suck it up & make my own.Oh well.  One of my friends in the neighborhood was having a CAbi party. I'd never heard of such a thing. It's clothes & they had some cute stuff but the prices?? WOW!!! Sorry, I don't pay $100 for a capri's. EVER. $118 for a sweater? NEVER EVER. It was fun visiting with everyone though.

Saturday I did some shopping with my mom. We didn't buy much but I did finally find the nail polish I'd been wanting.
It's called Re-Freshmint. We had lunch at Applebee's & had the most delicious club sandwich ever!!! We won't talk about the calories. UGH! Eating healthy isn't much fun.

Dean & I went to the LSU Baseball game Saturday night. It was a good game. LSU won in the bottom of the 9th 2-1. They ended up sweeping Arkansas which is a total surprise. Arkansas's supposed to be really good & while LSU is ranked, they don't appear to be good.

These brightened up my grocery shopping trip yesterday morning.
I LOVE tulips! They're my fave! They had these at the Walmart Neighborhood Market for $5.50. They started opening up not long after I put them in the water. I hope they last awhile.

I stayed home from the ballgame yesterday. I needed to re-stain my rocking chairs. I finished the stain but now I have to do the varnish. I'll have pics later.  It was HOT! When I finished that project I spent the rest of the afternoon here.
The water was actually warm enough to get in! We've never been in this early in the year. Very exciting!
I read while I was in the pool. I don't trust myself not to drop my Nook so I stuck it in a Ziploc bag. Worked like a charm!



  1. That nail polish is just the minty hue I've been looking for!

  2. Where did you find the polish? What do you think of it so far? No chips huh? I put on Meep Meep with OPI and the next day I had chipping going on. May have to start buying more China Glaze.

  3. I was so tempted to get in our pool this weekend, it made it up to 80 degrees but that was still a little cold for me! I have a feeling we will be swimming this weekend or next, though!

  4. Love the Nook in the Ziploc. I always want to read in the tub, but don't trust myself either. I am going to try that with my Kindle.

  5. I have cooked Santa Fe Chicken and loved it! :) Yum!

    I am going to have to steal your idea and put my Kindle in a ziplock bag when we go to the pool!

  6. I hate to plan meals and cook, as well...probably because I don't care what I eat as long as it tastes good and doesn't take too much effort. I'd much rather be spending time doing something else such as gardening or hanging out in that gorgeous pool of yours! Great idea about the ziplock bag!

  7. I hate grocery shopping, too! Your pool looks lovely, wish I had one. :)

  8. I used ziplocs by the pool too!! ha!
    Glad it has warmed up for you! I still haven't gotten in...just the boys
    I HATE grocery shopping and I HATE that Doug will NOT say what he wants to eat but complains after I make something.
