Weekend Recap 3.18.18 …NCAA, Walks, Spring Cleaning, and a Movie Date

Hi there!!!!   How was your weekend??  I hope it was wonderful!! Did any of you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?  This is probably the first year in a LONG time that I haven’t celebrated.  I went to Miami University (Miami of Ohio) and the Thursday before St. Patrick’s Day is known as Green Beer Day and it is absolute mayhem… and so much fun.  The college kids get up at the crack of dawn (think 4am …) to start the festivities that last all day and well into the night.  When we were living in Dallas, the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade is near our old house and they actually closed down the street behind our house for a day full of celebrations so needless to say, we have always taken part in a lot of St. Patrick’s Day fun.  But this year was a little different since I was still recovering from the stomach flu I got last week and we also wanted to keep it low key since we had been traveling the weekend prior.  This week was so productive mixed with a lot of exercise, relaxation, and amazing weather.  It was just what I needed! 

I don’t know about you guys, but March Madness is a BIG deal in our house (not by me…).  My husband loves college basketball and can’t get enough of the NCAA tournament.  Two games happened to be in Nashville on Friday night and my husband asked me early in the week if I wanted to go.  While being under the weather I told him no, but ended up feeling fine by Friday so I told him I would go with him if he could find tickets (not in the nosebleeds :)).  We ended up with great seats, but actually made our way down even a little lower to the best seats!  I don’t like watching basketball on tv, but in person it is a different story.  I think it is so fun especially when you are so close!


We got to see Xavier play Texas Southern and Missouri play Florida State.  We had a blast!


Bright and early on Saturday morning, we loaded the pups in the car to drop off my husband at a tennis clinic while we met my mom at the park for an early morning walk!


We walked and chatted and enjoyed seeing all the moss along the path. 


So neat!


The pups had so much fun!


Afterwards we came home and got to work on some spring cleaning.  We opened the windows and doors and began dusting, mopping, vacuuming, organizing, cleaning bathrooms, doing laundry, washing sheets and blankets, and cooking.  This little rascal enjoyed sun bathing all day. 


My mom surprised us with some new Easter decorations!! How cute are these bunnies?? My husband said they look mean. 😉

After our cleaning was complete and there was a break in the basketball games on tv (my husband put our tv out on the back porch so he could enjoy the weather without missing the game…), we leashed up the pups and headed to the park for a nice afternoon walk!  


We loved seeing all the spring flowers blooming!


I made these protein balls for a healthy morning snack for the week ahead!

We called it an early night on Saturday since we were up really early.  After we woke up on Sunday, I got in a quick workout before my friend Lissa came over to join me and the pups for another walk in the park!  It was such great girl time catching up and chatting while enjoying the nice weather.  

My husband and I got in some cuddling and more basketball watching before our evening plans.  


This is how most of my pictures actually look before I get a good one. 😉 So many kisses!


Obsessed with these hard-to-photograph-munchkins!

For dinner we roasted a bunch of veggies to put over rice/quinoa.  I topped mine with avocado and my husband topped his with chicken.  Easy, healthy, and delicious!


On Sunday night we decided to see Game Night.  It was pretty funny/scary and kept me engaged the whole time.  I wouldn’t say it was amazing, but it wasn’t bad.  It was hard to tell what was real and what was fake so it definitely kept me guessing.  


The recliner seats didn’t hurt either! 🙂 


That about wraps up our weekend!!  I hope yours was amazing too!

  2. We didn’t celebrate St. Patrick’s Day either, it makes me feel better that you didn’t too! I love St. Paddy’s day, but I was scheduled to work. March Madness is a big deal here too, but our brackets are doing horribly! That mossy path looks amazing… Y’all always know how to have so much fun!!
    – Highlight: well I worked all weekend, but it was a good weekend (for the most part) at work
