Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks

Another Hot Weekend & Look Ahead

Hello pretty princesses!

I hope you had a lovely weekend! What did you do?

Mine was nice, hot temperatures and all.

My Friday work lunch was so great because I got to meet up with an old friend/coworker!

I love this girl so much, and although we talk pretty frequently, I have not seen her in real life since last November.

Pathetic, right!?

She has 3 kiddos ranging from early elementary to college, so she is busy, plus we live so far away from each other, so emails and texts seem to work best. However, another coworker and I agreed we just need to make time to do things like this, so we did and I am so glad!

We went to Kaiser’s Bistro. I had the black bean burger and green beans (thankfully they don’t serve with bacon anymore).

After work, I went to the store and picked up groceries for the week.

-Here’s what the B-Love family is having for dinner this week:

-Veggie Burgers & Brats w/grilled squash

-Penne Pasta w/homemade red sauce and Meatless Balls

The meatless balls come courtesy of Gardein. Incase you are wondering, Will does not eat them, but since I do I make them for myself! So so good.

-Tamale Pies

So good. I will have to share the recipe with you! Perfect football fare.

Some of the above will make leftovers, hence why there are only three days of meals.

Friday was a pretty quiet evening. I got up super early that morning to work out, so I called it a night equally early.

Saturday morning Will worked for a few hours, so I hit the gym and did a leg circuit.

My workout was pretty amazing, but for different reasons than you may think. I plan to share what made it so special later this week, so stay tuned.

I also changed up what I did and am paying for it today. I am sore!

I got home and did a little light cleaning, which made me very happy. It gets hard to keep up with housework during football season, so I was thankful for the opportunity to get some done. Then Will was home! We took a quick nap since we got up so early, got ready, and then it was time for game day activities to commence!

We were pretty unadventurous this week and just did On The Border for lunch. It’s a good compromise for us, and I like it better than Will’s favored Ted’s because they have vegetable fajitas.

I get the veggie fajitas and ditch the tortillas, and enjoy them very much.

It was hot again yesterday. Really hot.

We got there about an hour early, and thankfully we were in the shade so it wasn’t unbearable.

It’s always the getting to the stadium part that’s the worst.

The walking to the stadium, walking to our seats, going to the bathroom where there’s no moving air.

Once we get to our spot, I’m good. It’s just getting to our spot!

The striped the stadium, which always looks cool.

The game was brutal.

Even though we won, I feel like we sort of lost. The defense played so strong, but our offense was very disappointing. The boys have lots to figure out before next week, and even more before the Notre Dame game later this month!

The game got over late, so after showering I went straight to bed!

Yesterday morning we slept in a little and opted to do church online since we got in so late. I really hate doing that, but it is frequent affair when OU has night games.

Will mowed the lawn, and I went to the gym to work chest, triceps, and shoulders. I also did a quick stint on the elliptical, which is a rare occurrence for me.

Given the choice, I will always pass on the ellipitcal or treadmill when I can do something quick and dirty (and more fun) like this, this, or this.

Yesterday also started Will’s Sundays of life in front of the television.

Fantasy football and NFL Sunday Ticket.

A lethal combination.

Lucky for me, I have a plan in place!

I showered and started getting around and my blow dryer died on me.


This has not been our best month. Between a $1200 truck AC replacement, vet bills, and a few other unexpected expenses, I’m pretty much ready to put this string of bad surprises behind us. The blow dryer was just another thing to add on that darn list! Thankfully they are far cheaper than new truck ACs!

So I’m sporting wavy hair bunched up in a clip.

Blow dryer broken :(


That did not stop me from getting out and about!

P and I made a quick trip to Starbucks. I got a smoothie and she got tea. Afterward, we headed to Petsmart to get dog food.

I live a glamorous life. smile

Here’s Layla watching the fish.


Then, it was on to Target to get some things for the week.

We love Target!

We love Target!

Before I knew it, it was 5 and time to start preparing for the long week ahead. Where did the day go!?

And back to work again. Luckily I have fun stuff planned. Take a look!

-Our protein knowledge continues to grow
-Another football inspired at-home workout
-Thursday Night Football Fare: B&P make another treat
-Welcoming you to my sanctuary
-Random Ramblings

And more.

Stay tuned and “happy Monday!”
