Weekend Things

Hello friends and happy Monday! First things first, I think it’s important to share with you the fact that my fingers are trying to type “thugs” instead of “things” in the title, and then, well…that would be an entirely different post altogether.

Now. Where were we? Thugs? What? Hmm?

Thugs Things I Did This Weekend

…Cooked these, these and these for a friend’s bridal shower I threw on Saturday. I won’t lie, I mostly threw her the shower to get away with eating embarrassing quantities of my favorite open-faced cucumber sandwiches. (Just kidding Cierra. Probably. I love you?)

…Got a pedicure with my mom. It was delightful.

…Let Allie interview me for the #BlogEveryDayInJuly challenge and oh my word we had a blast. Read the interview here. Just to get you nice and bothered, allow me to leave you with this gif (you better believe it’s in Allie’s interview):

…Had the laziest of Sundays with this sweet man:

…Made some good progress on The Project – 13k words, baby! All the “writing” was, of course, interrupted by extensive periods of Pinterest browsing, online shopping and snack eating.

…Completed day 4 of p90x, the 30-minute one, where the torture of the day consisted of a rotation between different flavors of pull-ups and push-ups. My biceps are nonexistent and the pull-up bar was dangerously close to damaging my shiny bedroom doorframe, so I took a modified approach to Herr Horton’s pull-ups. It  hurt like hades, and this morning I could barely lift my arms to tease my hair. My life is really hard y’all.

Anyway, that about sums me up. Riveting stuff, I know. It’s miraculous I haven’t been discovered for a reality show yet.

  • First of all, I am so incredibly impressed that you were able to make it through a full sesh of P90X. I tried one time, and thought I was going to puke, then that annoying perky ass guy was like, “OK YOU’RE ALMOST DONE WITH THE WARMUP!” and I was like “WTF I QUIT. Where is the nutella?!”

    Also – I love whatever you’re wearing in that picture at the shower! Is that a dress or a top? LOOOOVE it.

      Hahaha I feel your pain – even the warm-ups are freaking hard. Tony Horton clearly is a homicidal maniac. At least it’s only 30 minutes! I could never do the original set of 90, I’d die for sure. And thank you, the maxi dress is from Target!

    But like, think about HOW RIPPED you’re going to be at the end of P90x. You got this… and also, when you’re unhappy that you’re doing it, just remember that you chose this life and made Hess buy it for you. You’re so welcome.

    Is there any other way to write? Haha, I did A LOT of Pinterest browsing when I was writing my Capstone paper for my Masters! Glad you made some progress, though. Thanks for linking up with us for the Weekly Wrap Up.

  • ohhhhh i just did P90X ‘chest/shoulders/arms’ and screw you tony-sometimes i just can’t ‘bring it’ and i have sit on the couch and cry for a second.

    i’m also working (a little bit/sometimes/it’s scary/whaaaat) on a book and i straight up have to go somewhere that i cannot get internet because this internet is a craaaazy distraction but well done! 13k is no small feat and your book sound super interesting!

    glad i found your blog-hoooray for wives!

      At least you make it to the couch. I usually just fall down on the floor.

      Congrats on your book! What’s it about?

    I’m already jealous of the guns you’re gonna have after you finish P90X. I demand you video something along the lines of “welcome to the gun show” and then kiss your biceps. It’s only appropriate.

      Obviously.
