Please define Rest and Relaxation.

Let's talk about this weekend. I've officially decided that the words rest and relaxation are made up. Kind of like oooga booga or tiddliwinks. Seriously. Don't get me wrong, I like being busy. The problem is that being busy on the weekend makes it go by too fast, hence the reason we all think that they get shorter and shorter. Oh well, you win some and you lose some. Time flies when you're having fun and it's safe to say that I would rather my life be fast and fun than slow and boring!

My lovely weekend started out with a Home Goods, Pier One and dinner date with Nicole! It's was fun to go in the stores and swoon over all the goodies. I'll definitely be heading back soon to make some actual purchases as my home comes together. After shopping, we went to The Counter which is kind of a gourmet, custom built burger grill! I loved it! I had a turkey burger on a wheat bun with grilled onions, organic mixed greens, tomatoes, corn & black bean salsa and a garlic spread on the side. I definitely recommend it and will be taking the hubs there in the near future. I went home after dinner thinking I would veg for the evening until the hubs got off work (at 11pm), but instead I got a call from my friends saying we were going out for our friend Colin's birthday. I quickly got ready and met up with them. It was so great to see all of my Sugar Land friends!

Saturday morning started off with an ab and push up workout {blog post coming soon!} and then a shower followed by a Luna Bar and coffee for breakfast. Not a bad start, I then proceeded to tackle this mess:

After a few hours of sorting through the craziness and running up and down all of our stairs, I seemed to have put a small dent in the amount of progress made. Nothing too radical here, but it's slowly but surely becoming functional. My parents cam over around noon and helped us start hanging things on walls! My house is starting to look like a home y'all! We worked hard for several hours before it was time for the hubs and I to get ready for a baby shower.

Baby Braden is expected to enter this big world on February 28th! I am so excited for our friends Rusty and Kat. The hubs knows Rusty from college!

Now aren't these decorations so cute! The cupcakes were delish. The food was "Baby-Q" themed so we had hamburger and buffalo chicken sliders as well as mini hot dogs!

Here is a picture of us back home after all of the festivities! I curled my hair with my straightener for the first time and I'm going to brag a bit because it turned out great! Thanks for teaching me Leah!

Sunday started bright and early with a 4 mile run. JP decided to join me and since I'm currently doing some slower runs, it was nice because we were able to chat throughout our 4 miles. After that we showered, had breakfast at West Gray Cafe, went furniture shopping with Nicole and then went grocery shopping! Almost $200 later, we officially have a stocked pantry, fridge and freezer! I am so ready to cook in my new house. So that is exactly what we did! I made a yummy dinner of Italian turkey sausage, bell peppers {green and red}, yellow onion, zucchini, Rotel and garlic all sauteed in olive oil. I also included a lovely salad and baguette on the side! The baguette had a drizzle of olive oil, Rotel and a tid bit of mozzarella on top!

Yummy! Oh and obviously, I couldn't forget the wine!

A great end to a busy weekend that's for sure! What did you do this weekend? Any time to relax?
I hope y'all are all having an awesome Monday {it's almost halfway over!}

Until next time...
With love and God bless,
