Weekending: Hurricane Joaquin

Monday, October 5, 2015

Happy Monday ladies! Let me just start off by saying… so.much.rain. Our backyard is a shallow swimming pool. Muddy backyard= muddy dog. Enough said.

Friday after work I went straight to my sister's for taco soup (yum!) and lots of niece/nephew time… good for my soul! Hubs was out of town all weekend for an annual work conference in Nashville so I was left to fend for myself. The rest of my night was spent catching up on DVR and enjoying some wine alllll alone [well, my Bella girl was here too]. I love my husband and wish I could spend every second with him but alone time is good sometimes. I enjoyed recharging and Bella loved having his entire side of the king bed to herself ;)

How adorable are these German short-haired pointer coasters?! Mom gave us these last Christmas. I am slightly obsessed, obviously

Saturday I had to work [imagine that]. After we were done seeing all our patients, I headed straight to the gym, grocery store, then sis and I ran some errands to decorate our front porches. Pics to come! The rest of the day was spent watching football [my Tarheels won! Go UNC!], cleaning the house, and being completely lazy.

Sunday I played hooky and skipped church to wait at home for hubs. So happy to see him after 4 days away! We spent the wholeeee day together; gym, football, laziness, and crockpot chicken noodle soup. The perfect day if you ask me! Everyone at his work conference got a FitBit and he gave his to me… I was so happy! I've been wanting one for forever! We also stopped by Bath & Body Works because of how you guys raved over their candles. They were having a "spend $30, save $10" sale and we stocked up on some deeeelicious smelling candles!


Today is the beginning of my last week of this rotation. Thursday and Friday will be spent at the PA school taking an exam, listening to lectures, etc. Bleh. #59days. How was your weekend?!

Linking up with Meghan and Biana
