Oh the joys of a weekend!!

Oh weekend, where did you go?? And why do you go by so darn fast?? Oh well the weekend is gone and a new week is beginning.  This week tends to be an important one around our house because my husband LOVES 4th of July because it gives him an excuse to blow things up. I, on the other hand, try to stay clear of all the explosions. I always seem to get burnt and I don't even light anything, it pisses me off to be honest. The punks that the kids carry around make me INCREDIBLY nervous, not for them, but for myself. I just know one of those suckers are going to run by me and burn me with that stupid punk. ugh.... Okay I am done complaining about it.

This weekend was pretty laid back. Jed came home from work on Friday and did some of this

So I took the opportunity to "steal" his glasses and do this:

He still doesn't know that I took this picture so you know keep it on the down low. LOL I told you his glasses were horrible!! 

On Saturday my parents were in town, but couldn't stay too long. We all went in on a whole cow of beef and they came over to split the beef in half. We haven't had any steaks yet, but I did cook up some ground beef and it was pretty tasty.

This also took place on Saturday

He loves that dog!!! Sahara is truly R's best friend and it just makes me so happy to see them together. Sahara was my first baby and I'm so glad that she is so gentle with R. 

Then on Sunday I decided that I would go for a run.  My goal was to run 3 miles.  After my 1st mile I was thinking that I felt pretty darn good and that 4 miles MIGHT be possible. The weather was beautiful and there was a nice breeze so the weather conditions were just right. I wasn't running that fast, I have ran much faster, but the pace I was going felt GOOD and it didn't feel like I was constantly having to push myself. After mile 3 I did have to give myself a pep talk to get to mile 4, but I did it. And I ran a little extra too! 

It is funny how that works because after running 4 miles I actually thought a half marathon might be do-able, but the more I think about it, the more I think that I don't WANT to run a half marathon.  I like running, but that is a CRAP ton of running. I guess I will keep doing what I am doing. I will run when I want to (usually on the weekends because I don't want to go to the gym). Either way, I was pretty darn proud of myself after that run.

Oh and in the afternoon we did some of this
Ignore how goofy I look.  I was trying to get all three of us in a pic. 

We took a RZR ride through the country and ended up at a friends house for dinner and some fire works (insert grumpy face by me). It was a lot of fun and I had my first one of these:

And I have to say it was pretty darn tasty!! I'm digging it.  I may have to consume A LOT of them on Thursday to get through the day!! LOL

I hope y'all had a good weekend. I will see ya on Wednesday.  On Wednesday I will give you an update on what I am starting to worry about. September is going to be here before you know it and I'm starting to get a little nervous.  Why you ask?? Well tune in on Wednesday and I will let you know!! 


  1. You should be so proud of that run!! Also, I really want to try those Straw-ber-rita things, but I hate beer. Are they beer-ish at all?

    1. I e-mail all my replies now, but I wanted to put this on here so other people know. The Straw-ber-ritas do NOT have a beerish taste to them at all and they don't have a tequila taste either, they are just good!! LOL Or at least these are are my thoughts any ways!!

  2. 1. Thanks for your vote hookah! 2. I lurve me some Straw-ber-rita thingy ma bobbers! 3. Run that shit woman!
