Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks

One with Sleet & A Look Ahead

Happy Thanksgiving week!

It’s Monday, yet it feels like Wednesday since it’s a short week. I can’t dread the day like I usually do, right?

I hope you all had a lovely weekend. This past weekend was our first frigid one of the season, and I did very little.


It was a lazy weekend in, complete with cold weather and snow. Pretty great if you ask me!

It started to get icy Friday afternoon, so Friday night was pretty low key, with the exception of a quick trip to Walmart to grocery shop… alongside everyone else in the great state of Oklahoma.

Not only was it payday weekend and the Friday before Thanksgiving, but the weather promised to get worse this weekend.

Which means everyone in Oklahoma completely freaks out and buys enough to feed an army for two weeks.

Fun times.

I’m not a Black Friday shopper, but I imagine my trip to Walmart Friday night was eerily similar.

Will and I stayed in and caught up on some of our shows.

And even stayed up past 10:00!

It got crazy round here, ya’ll.

Saturday was not much different.

I actually slept in (you know, since I stayed up so late haha) and hit the gym later than usual.

I missed my chest and triceps day and wanted to incorporate them into my leg day I figured it wouldn’t be all that of an effective workout day, but turns out it was a great one!

Just making a few changes to my program by throwing in triceps and chest during my cardio and legs made a big difference and torched a ton of calories since I was constantly moving. Definitely a fun workout.

Afterward, I came home, showered, made Will a chocolate peanut butter pie,


and watched the OU-Kansas State game!

It was nice to see the boys bring home a victory.

We didn’t have much time after the game, and I can’t even recall what we did with that time!

We ended up making a quick trip to Buffalo Wild Wings for Will and Panera Bread for me to grab a quick dinner while we watched the Baylor-OSU game.


I really thought the Bears were going to win this one, so I was pretty surprised.

After that game, the OU basketball team was playing Michigan State (who’s ranked #1 right now), so we flipped over to that. It was a good game for awhile, but eventually Michigan State pulled away.

We even caught up on a couple shows after that, which means bedtime was near midnight.

Who are these wild and crazy kids!?

We slept in until 8 and woke to sleet!

South Oklahoma got pelted with snow, but we didn’t get too much, but did have some ice on the roads. We ended up watching church online and staying in for the day. I did some stuff around the house and then visited my family for a little baking!

We had a good time, and made something I’ll be sharing tomorrow.

Last night was spent getting ready for the week ahead and spending time with Will.

This is going to be the first Thanksgiving Will and I have ever spent apart, and my heart already aches. We sat on the couch and watched more football and just hung out together.


Dinners this week are pretty boring.

I made a big pot of vegetarian chili Saturday, so we’ll have leftovers Monday and Tuesday.

And I fear I’ll be having it for lunch until the day I die. smile

Wednesday I’m going to make Will this buffalo chicken dip that I keep hearing about.

Remember how I hate travelling and being away from Will and it makes me justify cooking him unhealthy food?

Yeah, that’s what this is.

I will be having a sweet potato with tofu.

As for workouts, this week is going to be a little trickier than normal, which is all the more reason to plan ahead.

No workout today, but I plan on hitting the gym Tuesday and Wednesday this week.

Thursday my family and I will be on the road, so no workout that day. I plan on doing one of my at-home workouts (like my cold weather workouts I’ve been sharing!) on Friday and possibly Saturday, and then off again on Sunday as we head home.

Truth be told, I’m happy about the time off and getting to see family (especially my grandma since she is in such poor healthy), but I’m also sad this week since Will and I will be apart. I am focusing on being thankful this week and mindful of all my blessings, and hopefully you are too.

Here’s a look at what I’ll be sharing this week:

-Fall Favorites: Why sometimes you just shouldn’t mess with a good thing
-Another Cold Weather Workout
-Happy Thanksgiving!
-And more!

Check in this week for fun, and let’s make it a good week!
