Ups & Downs - Long Weekend

The look back at all things good & bad on my weekend

UP - Got a blog button done... yahoo!  Look at me go!

UP - Long weekend!  I actually took 2 naps... & I never take naps.  I guess I needed some extra doses of sleep.  Actually - I think I REALLY needed some extra doses of sleep.

DOWN - my Starbucks still does not have Peach for Peach Green Tea Lemonade... why??????.... for the love of Jesus... why?!?!?!?!?!?!!?

UP - got some organic peach lemonade & am going to try & brew my own green tea & see if its anywhere close to the same.  Forget you Starbucks

(I'm sorry Starbucks... we're still best friends... I promise)

UP - I tried for the first time in my like sushi veggie roll... Why did someone not tell me how amazing these were before?  Avacado & cucumbers wrapped in seaweed & brown rice?  I had no idea it would be so heavenly.  It tasted so clean.  I will probably be stopping at our grocery's sushi section a LOT now.  I wonder if I can put a standing order in for some veggie rolls every few days?

DOWN - my friends don't tell me about amazing foods I should be eating

UP - Finished my book.  Paper Towns by John Green

DOWN - the book was kinda getting on my nerves.  It had great parts & then just stupid parts.  I ended up giving it a 3 out of 5 on Goodreads, but I was wanting it to be a 5 out of 5 book.  It's John Green after all.

UP - Got my closet switched over!

UP - I forgot I ordered some maxi skirts over the winter - so I have 8 new skirts. I'm excited

DOWN - My shorts from last year... yikes... I have only like 3 pairs that fit.  The others are all so snug that I feel like I would be miserable all day if I had to sit... who needs to sit?  Right?

DOWN - Our Harvey Dent is always into something... Mr. Puppy that he is.  He's 10 months old now... well, Saturday I go to find my Polar heart rate watch & can't find it.  No... no... no... I find it outside in the yard... with no straps, & the face all dented in with puppy teeth marks.  NOOOO!!!!!

UP - It still actually worked.  I put it in a wrist wallet that I use for my FitBit when I sleep & it still got my heart rate doing T25.

UP - Finished the first 30 days of T25 - through with the Alpha Round!!! YAHOO!  Sticking with it.

UP - Went to see X-men with friends.... I was so excited this movie & it didn't disappoint me.

We take our X-men seriously

DOUBLE UP - You see Hugh Jackman's butt!!!!

DOWN - Ricky & I stopped for frozen custard after the movie.  I don't know why I got it - I didnt even want it - but got a carmel cashew sundae.  It was so yummy, but it made me so sick. I'm not used to eating that much dairy.  My stomach hurt all night & I was so bloated. Miserable.  Never again... NEVER!

UP - Got a new Polar Watch!!! I actually really like the red.

UP - Started the T25 Beta Round... here's to another 30 days of getting STRONG!

DOWN - I may have felt like I was going to puke doing the Beta Round - day 1... that's OK - gotta start somewhere.

UP - Got to spend some time with family on Memorial Day... my nieces are growing up so much.  We walked & ventured around my dad's property checking out the pond for snapping turtles.  Its the little things


DOWN - my family laughed & made fun of me for having been featured for my Vegetarian article... Not everyone agrees with lifestyles.  They laugh at me... I feel sorry for them & their diet.

How was your weekend?  
Hopefully more UPS then DOWNS


  1. What? They laughed at you? I think that is great about your article. Certainly no need to laugh :( I had some Oikos frozen yogurt last week and I was up all night with an upset stomach. I wonder if it is the dairy or something that is giving me trouble too.
    Have a great week!

    1. I had always heard about dairy intolerance & how miserable it can be... I now understand.

  2. i have never heard of frozen custard, interesting! it looks yummy haha sorry you were sick though! boo.
    and xmen! i freaking LOVED it! yay!

  3. Love the new ups and downs button!

    I haven't seen X-men yet, but I love Hugh Jackman! :0)

    Glad you had a great Memorial Day weekend!

    1. Hugh Jackman ... the best reason to see Xmen! :)

  4. I love the I Run with Jesus button. Seems like a good weekend all in all! Have a fabulous week!

    1. I love that button too :) Always makes me smile

  5. I love veggie sushi! Everyone thinks it's weird that sushi is one of my favourite types of food but I won't touch the cold raw fish with a ten foot pole. Have you tried the yam role? Perhaps not the healthiest option as the yam is deep fried, but talk about delicious. Looks like such an awesome weekend aside from the dairy. I have been there where I get all excited about eating something like pizza or cheese and crackers and two hours later I'm on the couch regretting it...not fun.

    1. Yam Role?!?!??!?! I gotta check that out!! It sounds amazing!!!

  6. The maxi skirts are super cute! Let me know how the lemonade turns out. I'm hoping it works out for you. :)
