Weekend Recap 6.20.18 … Lake Time, Lots of Doggie Pictures, Father’s Day, and a Date Night

Hey guys!!  How is your week going so far?  We will be on the way to Georgia when this posts (I write my posts a day in advance) for a long weekend with family, which we are really excited about.  I’m hoping for some nice long walks with the pups and some sunny weather!! I have never loved being outside more than these days.  I could stay outside all day even in the crazy hot temperatures if it means never having to see the inside of another hospital room again. 🙂 

Late last week I headed to my dad’s lake house for a couple days with my pups and my daddy!  His lake house is just over an hour away from Nashville so it is really easy to get to.  My husband was away in St. Louis for a bachelor party last weekend.  

After a quick dinner, we relaxed on the couch with the pups while watching some Jim Gaffigan.  He’s our favorite comedian and we are actually going to see him in Nashville later this year.  Have you guys seen one of his stand up routines?  Do yourself a favor and watch one (or all of them) on Netflix and you can thank me later.  He is HILARIOUS!



My dogs are both obsessed with my dad.  It is quite funny because he claims he is “not a dog person.”  Lies.


See… they are always next to him… he is way cooler than me so I get it.  


The most gorgeous view from the lake house.  Isn’t nature just beautiful?  


I started my mornings at the lake with a long walk with the pups to wear them out.  The lake house is out on a country road and the residents there let their dogs just wander around and one morning we picked up a friend.  He followed us for a few miles before finally heading back home. 🙂 


After our walk, I caught some rays while listening to a podcast while my dad finished up some work.  This view isn’t too shabby. 😉 


Later in the afternoon we headed to the lake for some boat time!  There is nothing like being on the water on a hot summer day. 



Saturday morning we headed to the boat before the temperatures got too hot.  We took the pups with us this time since we knew we would only be out there a short time.  Riley found the perfect spot to cool off. 😉


My sweet girl.  Her kisses are my favorite. 🙂

I have been easy back into being active these last few weeks.  My incision is almost all healed up and I was given the go ahead to walk and exercise (not lifting over 10 lbs.).  I have been doing some light weights (5 lb dumbbells) in the mornings and I always have some spectators.  Callie just watches while Riley wants to play fetch the whole time.  He’s so cute I don’t mind. 🙂 


Saturday night my dad had a birthday party to attend so I got to have some sibling time with my little brother.  We are 17 years apart, but it sure doesn’t feel like that.  He is such a kind kiddo and I just love being able to spend time with him.  My dogs are also obsessed with him too. 


I’m chopped liver when this kid is around. 😉


We opted to make dinner at home on Saturday night and watch a couple movies.  One of them was the emoji movie, which I hadn’t seen.  It was pretty cute!

Sunday morning we got up early to make breakfast before my dad came over.  Jacob went all out with decorations and chocolates at each seat.  The cutest! 


Breakfast was followed by our very own stand-up routine by my brother.  He is super into comedy this days and loves combining different comedian’s routines to make his own.  He is getting really good at it!  He did a comedy routine for me while I was in the hospital, which made me laugh a lot.  I needed it!


A little while later we go ready to head to the movies to see Incredibles 2!  It was really good!!  After I said goodbye to my dad and brother, I still had time to meet my momma to get our nails done.  I have never been one to keep my nails up… just getting them done for special occasions, but since living near my mom, I have been a little spoiled.  We have a lot of fun chatting while getting pampered.  🙂



Earlier this week my husband took me on our first date night since before I was in the hospital! It was much needed! We took out the convertible since it was a nice evening.  


We had a gift card to The Southern to use so that’s where we decided to grab dinner.  We both opted for fish entrees, which ended up being very good decisions.  I got the salmon special and my husband got the halibut.  So delicious. 

I hope you all have a great rest of your week and an amazing weekend!!!!

  1. GORGEOUS LAKE HOUSE VIEWS!!! So happy you enjoyed such a fun time with your Dad and brother. Couldn’t be happier for you. btw…what color did you use on your nails? They are gorgeous. Getting my mani tomorrow and going with a light color for a change (usually do very dark or a deep or bright red). Going on a pool resort vaca in the Desert so want to switch it up. Have a great weekend!


    1. Thanks Donna!! I can’t remember the exact color but I think it was called “hint or touch of grey”. It’s almost a light white with a tiny of grey. I really like it. I usually do a deep or bright red too! It’s nice to change it up a bit. This color was in the powder dip. I used to do gel but now I love the powder. Have you tried it before? So jealous of your vacation!! How fun!!! Have so much fun and I want to hear about it when you get back!!! Xoxo


  2. I feel like I know you are totally back to yourself since you are ordering the salmon dish from somewhere 😉 Hehe. This is so precious- all of it. I love how your little brother is working on his stand up comedy! That’s so fun. Your family seriously seems like the best. And alwayyys nail care is the ultimate mode of self care, right?! I always am so happy when I see a post from you!! ❤
