Weekend Recap 1.27.18 Hockey, Projects, and A Night Out

Hey friends! How’s it going?  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  Mine started a little early with a fun night out with my dad last week for the Predators game!  We went to dinner at Amerigos before the game and it was so yummy!  Then we headed downtown to the arena.  It was an amazing game.  The Preds were winning 3 to 2 until a few minutes to go.

But then the other team scored and it went into overtime and the Preds lost. 😦 . But it is always a good time with my daddy!

I am all about home projects these days and since our house was brand new when we bought it, we haven’t had to do many projects.  So I have been coming up with new small projects for my husband and I to do together and the most recent one was building a ladder shelf like these ones.  We started and finished it this weekend so once it is all set up I will show you guys!!

 

These 3 are my everything.  I just love them so much. 🙂

Since moving into our new home in Nashville, I have been working out at home instead of at a gym and I LOVE it.  It is so nice to not have to worry about crowds, traffic, and time commuting.  Every time I do a wall sit, Callie comes over to give me a hug (and some extra weight). 🙂

I think I have shown you guys this bench that my husband and his brother made for our front porch, but this past weekend I finally got around to putting a few coats of poly on it, which gives it a nice shine and will protect it from harsh weather.   I just love it!

On Friday night my dad and little brother invited Jon and I out to dinner at Amerigos and we couldn’t say no!  Ofcourse I forgot to take any pictures, but we had a blast catching up with them!  

Yall, don’t make fun of me, but I did yoga this past weekend at my house and ouch.  I am SO not flexible at all.  I never have been, but since taking yoga out of my workout routine, I have lost all flexibility that I did gain over the last few years.  I am going to make a point of doing yoga a couple times a week because I do notice that my back feels a lot better when I stretch regularly.

Our Sunday started with a workout and lots of cleaning around the house.  In the afternoon we headed to World Market (we got a big Costco run in too, which is my favorite!) to do some shopping for our new shelf before heading to dinner with my mom and stepdad at Antonios.

I got the grilled salmon and it was delicious… probably due to all the butter on it!! 😉

After dinner we had plans to see Father Gregory Boyle speak about his book “Tattoos on the Heart.”  If you haven’t heard of him or his book, you should look him up and read his book.  It is a quick, easy read and it is fantastic.  He works with gang members in LA and helps them get jobs, tattoo removals, and helps them find a purpose to lead a better life.  He is truly amazing and his talk was wonderful too.
