Ups & Downs

Where we look at how the weekend went

DOWN // Started off my weekend with disgusting food that made me sick.  Grease is not my friend.

DOWN // Got about 5 bags of groceries... it cost $92.00!! What?  Eating healthy bites.

DOWN // Zevia - they raised the price for a 6 pack at the grocery to $6.99... 6 cans... over $1.00 each?  No way... If they go on sale - watch out, I'm stocking up.

DOWN // I worked out zero, zilch, nada... I was sick on Friday, had a session on Satur... know what - no excuses - I just didn't do it.  #lazy

UP // I did start my Saturday with coffee & knitting. That always makes me happy

Soft yarn makes me happy too

UP // I made crockpot vegetarian chili on Saturday. The anticipation of waiting for yummy food that smells delish ... makes the food taste even better.

UP // the trees were PERFECT for a photo session.  Especially because it was at a local orchard.  Apples & pumpkins everywhere...

DOWN // I can't believe how cool it was for that photo session.  Time for nose-running photography.

UP // This bride-to-be had the best outfits chosen for her & her fiancé. I love when people know how to put outfits together... some people don't... trust me.

UP // Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows on ABC Family all weekend...

DOWN// .... stupid commercials on ABC Family.  Some channels are ridiculous about them.

UP/DOWN // Made another beautiful cowl that I intended to make for Christmas - but I love it ... & want to keep it for myself

DOWN // I did not one bit of laundry... or cleaning...  #REALLYlazy

DOWN // Made out my bills & put everything up... & then went to the mail box & found 3 more bills in it. Are you kidding me?  It has to wait another week.

UP // I just found out I'm going to be off the entire week of Thanksgiving.  I'll take it.

DOWN // I hate Thanksgiving

This made me laugh

DOWN // Words can hurt... bad...

UP // Holding a baby makes the world a better place... & stronger arms... #doubleduty

UP // Baby skinny jeans!!!  I didn't even know these existed.  The cuteness is too much.

UP // Chili leftovers

UP // Lunch with friends after church

UP // Sitting in the backyard with my dogs.  They all try to rush & see who can get in my lap the first.  Happiness is being loved by animals.

UP // Walking Dead Night...  makes me happy once again I am a vegetarian. #thighmeat

How was your weekend?


  1. I would totally be that person that can't pick an outfit for pictures. so not my thing.

    Baby skinny jeans are adorable!

  2. First off, I can't believe we weren't following you on Instagram, but don't worry, we fixed that!
    Second of all, I totally know what you mean about people not dressing appropriately ( in our for photo shoot. Remember I told you that a friend asked me to take some engagement shots? Well her and her fiancé both chose to wear grey. She is blond and has the fairest skin so that just washed her out. We did outside shots so I tried to put her against some colorful backgrounds. In the end, I had to adjust all the pictures on my PC to give them a little more color. She thought they turned out great though. Anyway, can't wait to see the photos you took.

  3. Baby skinny jeans are my favorite! What is that blue thing in your yarn picture?! A yarn hoop?

  4. The next time I go to Peru, give me like $5 and I'll bring you back the softest baby alpaca yarn imaginable. I got some for my mom last year and didn't wanna give it up!

  5. Oh my!!! The end of walking dead, siiiick! I hate when the prices raise on things I like! So not fair!!

  7. Okay, that turkey picture nearly made me fall out of my chair! Thanks for that!

    1. Also-I just started following you on instagram too!

  8. LOL, I am seriously loving Walking Dead this season. Yes gross, but they sure are keeping it action packed, and I really hope they keep that up. This might be the most awesome season ever!
    I had to laugh at the comment about the couple's not knowing how to pick outfits and match... Seriously sometimes I look at peoples wedding pictures and couples photo shoot pictures and wonder what the heck they were thinking, LOL
    I know you said you don't like Thanksgiving, but wow a week off awesome! Enjoy that, I'm jealous!!!

  9. aww those baby skinny jeans! so cute.
    why do you hate thanksgiving? i don't care for it, but i didnt grow up with it, so its understandable.

  10. And this is why I love you so much....I feel like we live similar lives...except you're better at most of those things we share in common lol. And baby skinnies!!! I'm so gettin some for my neice :D
