Weekend Wrap Up

What’s good?!!

Nothing too spectacular and life changing over here but the usual. Cleaning, cooking, laundry, breaking up fights, etc. etc.

This weekend was rather chill and laid back. I say chill literally. The weather here has been unseasonably cool. I don’t think we’ll be getting out of the mid 80’s this week. For August that is unheard of. I think I smell fall coming early or is that the pumpkin spice candle that I pulled out. Don’t judge, I looooooooove the fall. LOVE.


Back to the weekend. I kicked off the weekend a little early on Thursday when I attended a passion party. If you don’t know what that is I’ll let you use your imagination. I’ll leave that there.

Friday evening I went out to the park to kick it with one of my football mom homies…NO I’m not salty my son isn’t playing. Addison just needed to get out and stretch her legs and run. After we came home my bestie stopped by and the Mr. was so kind as to go grab us a bottle of this:

and we tipsy giggled and watched VH1 Soul while I painted my nails. Tipsy giggles are everything if you didn’t know. Like uncontrollable laughter at the dumbest things..Yes!!

Saturday we lounged around and in the afternoon we headed out to the builder to select our cabinet, tile, laminate, carpet and granite colors..*Roger Rabbits*  I’ll give an update later in the week along with photos on that progress.

Sunday, I headed out to Figo Pasta to have lunch with my Godson for his 11th birthday. After that I came home and watched the Rihanna interview

I’m not a huge Rih Rih fan. I think it may be more accurate to say I am indifferent on her but I will belt out one of her tunes all off key, which is neither here nor there. I thought the interview was well done and I think I may be liking her a tad bit more than I did. Was it me or did you want to see her mother have some other reaction to receiving the house rather than that tired Ohhhh My Gosh she kept repeating.  It’s just me?

How was your weekend?

    I’m going to buy a bottle of that sangria one day. It looks yummy.
    I totally share your opinion pre and post interview opinion of Rih! That O really knows how to make you like someone.
    Ummm yeah I was waiting for her mom to cry or scream or something. I think O was too!

    The weekend was good and productive. I got some more unpacking done and prep for BB’s first day of school. I don’t have cable so I missed the Rihanna interview. It was interested to see some of the tweets about it, hopefully I can view it online.

    My weekends are always filled with work, work, work. I’m mad my husband didn’t record the interview for me. I guess I’ll catch the next airing. That darn Oprah make you feel a person, huh?

    my weekend was relaxing but it went by way too quickly.

    I watched that interview and i feel the exact same way you do. I didn’t think her mom was too excited. It was kind of annoying. I do however like Rhianna a little more. I’m not a fan, like you i was more indifferent. But She was really honest and personable in that interview and I can appreciate that.

    This Saturday was my husband’s birthday so we ate cake. The. Entire. Weekend. He just stopped celebrating last night. Next year, he says he’ll be taking a week off for his birthday. *kanye shrug*

    I’m not a big of Rhianna but I do find her antics intriguing. The interview did allow me to get a glimpse of her unguarded.

    Hugs and Mocha,

    Our weekend was nice and relaxing. After running around all week, we stuck close to home, and napped a lot. Nothing better than family nap time. Then we had a great time at the roller derby Saturday night.
    I didn’t watch the Rhianna interview. She just rubs me the wrong way, but everyone seems to have enjoyed it.

    Lol I agree with what someone said above Oprah was more excited than the mom. I liked the interview which told me what I already knew she still loves him. My weekend was filled with drama at the football field….which means nothing has changed on that outlook.

    My weekend was pretty nice. Stress free, yelling free, and for once we were not late for church.

    I love tipsy giggles with girlfriends and watching VH1soul – especially the old ones and for some reason, the random reggae ones. Nostalgiac and hilarious in that order. And we appreciate when we get the opportunity now because we’re all so busy.

    Yesh, I was waiting for a LITTLE bit more of a reaction, I mean, I think I was reacting on behalf of her mother, that place was GORG. DANG!! I really loved the way Rihanna interacted with her people, without her nose in the air and you could totally tell it was genuine.

    My weekend was eventful but in the “churchy” kind of way. I dedicated my whole weekend to worship. However, I am glad you had a chance to let your hair down this weekend!
