Weekending | October 6,7,8

What a relaxing weekend! For only the second time since the college football season began, I spent my entire weekend near home and just catching up on everything. Don't get me wrong, I love going to State College to watch PSU play, but there's something to be said for watching the game on television while sipping on my second third cup of Saturday morning coffee.  

Penn State's game took off in the second half and the Lions had things locked down, so I turned my attention to the Iowa State/Oklahoma state game just in time to see the #3 Sooners lose to an unranked Iowa State. I promise I'm not gloating about the OK loss, but I'm so stinking excited to see Penn State to move up  in the rankings after their win! 

My sister and her husband made the trip out to Evanston for the game and Jason was working, so I was home with all three dogs all weekend, which was quite the adventure. They all get along well, but they're not used to being with one another for four days in a row! I'm also not strong enough to handle all three of them on a walk, so we were stuck playing indoors or in the yard, which was the perfect way for me to be lazy, but I think they were over the confined area pretty quickly.

I did a mini-haul at Ulta on Saturday, too, because I wanted to use up some of the reward dollars that have been hanging out in my account for the last year or so. I've been hoarding the reward points because I'm making an effort to use what makeup I already have, but I started to realize that a lot of the makeup I currently use is either the wrong shade for my skin, too sparkly/shimmery, or too old and in need of being binned. 

Sunday brought a very early wake up call to help with a Junior League storage unit clean out. Certainly not my favorite way to spend an early weekend morning, but I treated myself to some Dunkin' and made the most of it. Now that we are organized, hopefully we won't have to go through this again!

Sunday was also spent running unexciting errands, playing with the doggies, and organizing my Pinterest boards. Yes, I'm still on the obsessive Pinterest train and I want my boards to look pretty! I created board covers using a free-use background and canva.com, and I think they turned out well. I still have quite a few more to do, but check them out on my Pinterest account

This week brings one of my most favorite days of the year - my birthday! I'll be 33 on Wednesday, and surprisingly, I have no problems with being a year older and a year wiser. It's also my niece's birthday, as well. How cool is it to share a birthday with your first and oldest niece? I love it! 

I actually don't have many plans for the week, no meetings or crazy obligations, so perhaps I'll finally put to use all of those pins on Pinterest that instruct me on how to paint my bedroom, organize my cabinets, and purge my old makeup. Hey, at least I'm already started on the makeup front, right!? 


  1. Oh my goodness - handling three dogs?! My ONE dog makes me crazy! Good for you! It sounds like it was a beautifully relaxing weekend (despite waking up early to clean!) Happy Tuesday!

  2. Watching a Penn State game on the couch is so enjoyable to me! I can yell as loud as I want!! LOL! Sounds like a fun weekend!


I love hearing what you have to say - your comments make my day!
