Weekending

Good morning!

I kind of liked the format I used for last weeks 'weekending' post so I think I'm going to stick with that again!
This weekend I...

Had a pizza + movie date night with Nick.  We tried out Blaze Pizza which was really cool, kind of like a Subway but for pizza.  They had a few signature pies (I tried the Art Lovers) while Nick went the make your own route.  I'll definitely be doing that next time because I couldn't believe the amount of toppings they had!  It was also really reasonably priced.. two pizzas and drinks for under $20.


Saw Gone Girl after dinner!  It definitely lived up to the book although I still wish the ending would have been different. Of course seeing a movie requires sneaking in candy.


This one is a huge we, not I.  Nick and I put up wainscoting in our dining room!  And it is looking SO.GOOD.  We followed this tutorial by Jenna Sue literally to a T.  It was a process but overall pretty easy.  I think the step that took the longest was the math, calculating how far apart the boards would be ha.  Next up is primer today and paint tomorrow!



Didn't wear any makeup.  For two days straight.  It was really quite nice but I will say thank goodness for sunglasses and Instagram filters ;)

Ate a whole bunch of Spicy Tomato Soup.

Visited the cider mill!  Check that one off the fall to do list.  It was just a quick Sunday evening trip and we were beat from working all weekend so we grabbed the goods (donuts + cider) and were out of there.


Overall a good and VERY productive weekend!  What were you up to?

  2. Sounds like you had a great weekend! Hooray for DIY wainscoting - I'm glad to hear the process isn't too painful. I already informed Ryan we will be doing the same whenever we find a house. It just adds so much detail and character to a dining room or hallway. Glad you made it to the cider mill - that's a must for fall! Happy Monday!

  5. I have been craving good pizza. Specifically a place that's in San Antonio but right now any would do.

  6. That pizza looks amazing! And I always sneak in candy to a movie... movie theater candy is SO expensive! I really need to see Gone Girl still! And can't wait to see how the wainscoting turns out!

  8. I love the Subway/counter style concept, but have never found a pizza place like that - I know I'd love it, plus I mean it's pizza, lol.

  15. sounds like a fabulous weekend - i had to put on makeup on saturday night and i was not impressed, lol. i wanted to just wear my sunnies all night, but that would have looked weird. the wainscoting looks amazing already, can't wait to see the finished product! i have been contemplating doing something like that in my house but not sure where or if i really want to - i definitely would if we had a separate dining room like that. sneaky candy into the movies is a must!

  19. Weekend recaps are so much easier to write in bullet formats, right?!!?

    Well done with the house work lady! I love not wearing makeup, my face feels so fresh!

  20. I have yet to find a good cider mill here in utah! Cider & doughnuts sound amazing! I loved Gone Girl too, but it was one of the few times I wished that I actually hadnt read the book. The movie would have been far more thrilling then!

  21. Look at you with big power tools! Go GIRL! ... not the kind of Go girl that is crazy, you know what I mean :)
    No make up weekends are THE BEST!!!

  22. You get 'em with those home DIYs, lady! It totally worked off the pizza (anything with math will, BTW ;) ). Fun weekend for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I saw Gone Girl this weekend too - it was soooo good. And we absolutely sneak in snacks also ;)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh my gosh I always sneak those sour worms in!! Love it!! So excited about the house progress- you go girl!! xoxo

  25. Oh yes, sneaking in candy is a must. I'm not paying $4 for a box that is .99 around the corner, nope ;) I seriously can't wait to see all your before and afters once you're completely done. So happy for you and your sweet home!

  30. What a fun weekend! I don't know if this is true everywhere, but I was once told by a mall employee that if a movie theater is attached to the mall, you can't be stopped for bringing outside candy, so long as it is in a shopping bag from one of the mall's stores.

  34. Love your blog (I'm a new follower as on today, lol)! So I've been hearing a lot about people disappointed with Gone Girl's ending. I haven't seen it yet but at least the rest of the film is good! And aren't makeup free days kind of the best? My skin always feels so refreshed and I totally second you on sunglasses and insta filters #lifesavers

  35. I am dying to see that movie! And love that you guys snuck in your goods....and that we aren't the only ones that do that! Depending on the theater, I know if I need to sneak in my own pop. I have to have pepsi products! =)

    And your trip to the cider mill? Exactly how we would be - eat, drink and jet!

    Have a great week!

  36. Awww what a fun weekend!
    I want to see Gone Girl so bad, but I haven't read the book. Should I read the book first and then get the movie on Redbox? Ahhh, I don't know what to do!

    ReplyDelete
  37. OMG I love the idea of wainscoting your dining room! Weekends with no makeup are THE best!
