Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks

Weekend Recap And Week Ahead Preview (And P Goes to Work!)

Hello lovelies!

Why do I always feel like I start my Sunday posts with, “It’s Sunday! I can’t believe the weekend is over!”?

Probably because, I always do.

I would say I’ll try to work on my creativity, but the truth is, every Sunday I think to myself, “It’s Sunday! I can’t believe the weekend is over!”

So yeah… maybe I should do some self helping and work on that…

Lucky for me, I’m posting early, so I still have lots of the day left.

Anyway, I hope you are having a fantabulous weekend!

And crazy- did you know fantabulous is a real word?

I totally thought it was a “fake” word. I am notorious for adding a “y,” “ing” or “ous” to the end of anything to make up my own variations of words.

And yes, I’m 30.


So, I just typed it and the red spell check error of death didn’t come up, so we should totally overuse this word now since it’s legit!

Anyway, back to the weekend part of this post. I hope you had a greatfantabulous one.

Mine has been nice. Friday was uneventful. A thrilling trip to Sam’s, and that was about it!

A quiet Friday was fine, because Saturday was full. We ended up driving to see Will’s grandparents (and a lot of other family) for the day. We typically have a family reunion every July, but this year it was cancelled. Instead, our “branch” of the family tree got together and cooked out and spent the afternoon together.

Can I tell you how much I love both sides of my family?

My MIL called to make sure I wouldn’t starve, and even picked me up black bean burgers.

We have a lot of July birthdays, so we ended up celebrating them all together, so that was nice too.

Not only that, but Will’s grandma gave me the prettiest apron! Her mother (Will’s great grandma) left behind lots of fabric, so Will’s grandma made aprons for all the ladies in the family based upon fabric that seemed to reflect each of us. It was so thoughtful! Mine is white with pretty red and pick flowers on it, complete with pretty lace around the edges. Very girly.

I look forward to doing some clean cooking in it.

We ate, shot paintballs-

And even Will’s grandpa got in on the fun!

We got home sort of late, so Sunday morning we watched Life Church at the movies online instead of going. Definitely check the series out! I posted a list of times below you can catch it.

The rest of today will be full of chores and more chores. Boo.

And then there’s my beautiful sister.

She starts her big first job tomorrow!

Ugh, when I think back to my first job, there were a lot of growing pains! Plus I documented it all on this blog, which makes me cringe when I go back and read about my immaturity, but at the same time, makes me thankful for some of the life lessons I learned along the way- and also makes me thankful I got out from under such a crappy work environment.

What about you guys and your first jobs?

I remember the helpful insight you offered way back when P first started college and felt sort of lost and alone those first few days on campus, and I thought I would throw out the same request for helpful hints and advice as she nervously begins this next big phase in her life.

Any tips she should consider?

I gave her funny ones, like no stripper heels or blowing giant bubbles with pink Bubble Yum (obviously grape, however, is totally acceptable haha), but I also gave her some practical advice she hadn’t thought of, like what to do at lunchtime her first day and all those silly insecurity things you fail to think about but panic about your first few days.

Anyway- I’m sure any thoughts or stories on your own first job would be appreciated.

Now let’s take a look at what is on the agenda this week:

-The Nice Girl Campaign continues
-Cleaned up Vegan Twinkies. Yes, after Tuesday’s post, this is happening.
-Workout hydration
-Ipsy Review
And More!

Check in this week!
