Scenes from the Weekend

Happy Monday!! If there's one thing I'm consistently good about is writing about my weekend and hopefully typing up a few other posts for the rest of the week. I swear, if I don't write down what I want to say, it just disappears off into space.

Friday morning I left for work and saw this on my front porch. AHHHH!!! MOTHRA! 

My fantastic FB friends told me it was a Luna Moth which is apparently a good omen. It's a sign of re-birth and re-awakening and also a vegetarian, which means it wasn't there to eat my face. Thank goodness, I was ready to pack a bag and not come back. 

On Thursday at work we had picture day. It was an opportunity for everyone to get a head shot for LinkedIn. This is my 3rd head shot this year so I was good. I just had one taken at convention a few weeks ago and it was infinitely better than anything the photographers took.

One shot, one take. The ones at work took at least 10 and I hated all of them.

Well, I'm sure I've mentioned that I work in a pretty interesting place and my team members are a little... quirky. Here's what 2 of them came up with.

I can't think of a more appropriate picture for the 2 of them. They said it was their family portrait and they needed my octopus as their family crest. Yep, I'm their boss. When we get the official version back I'm getting a bunch of 5x7s made and framed. Everyone is getting one for their desk. This also might be the picture we use for the team's holiday card.

Saturday morning I had some returns to make and a trip to the liquor store. I had a bridal shower to attend that evening and the theme was "Stock the Liquor Cabinet". It might be the best shower theme ever. Ever.

While I was looking for my present, I found something that I'd been looking for!

Sugarland Shine butterscotch moonshine! I've been looking for over a year for this! I had it at the a beer festival last year and it's seriously the best thing ever. 

Afterwards I headed to Omega Sports to return my Hokas. I wasn't a fan. On my run Tuesday the balls of my feet went numb and all of my toes. They have a really wide toe space and I know they weren't too tight, they just weren't for me. Thankfully I still had my receipt and I traded them in for a new pair of Sauconys. Sometimes it's just better to stick with what you know. 

I also had some returns to make to Nordstrom from the anniversary sale. The good news is I think I finally found the perfect moto jacket for the fall and my new favorite tunic. 

After my errands it was time to head to the shower. There I tasted this deliciousness for the first time. OMG it was good.

kudos Bud Light, kudos
Then I realized I'd only posted pictures of booze on Instagram on Saturday. Oops. I guess my inner lush came out. 

I wasn't sure if it was a girl party or a boy/girl party and when I got there and saw all the guys, I made Kev leave the house and come too.

Everyone had a great time and they walked out with a LOT of booze. 

Sunday came far too soon. I spent most of the morning food prepping for the week, doing laundry and working on some KD emails. 

I really, really, really needed to get my car washed. It was bad. Before I did, I stopped at AutoZone to get some degreaser to get the pine tar off my car. As I was cleaning it, I noticed there was a new to me car wash behind the Fresh Market and I headed there to get it cleaned. 

I really liked the place. They did a great job AND they have a cat.

This is Sophie. She was a stray they rescued and now she lives there. She also likes to sit on your lap. Well, my lap. Cats love me. It's my gift and my curse. lol.

Now it's time for some blogging and laundry folding. Not all that exciting but I needed a low-key weekend.

How was your weekend???

Linking up with BLoved Boston!AND


  1. I have sad news, hubby finally brought home the adult root beer. I really really really wanted to love it, but alas, I did not. Sigh. You decided to stick with what you know it and shoes, I guess I will apply that to my KahlĂșa ... Lol

  2. I have seen the strangest moths lately.

    That picture looks like something out of a Will Ferrell movie with those guys :) haha

    1. Le Sigh, I swear I naturally attract the odd ones. I'm sure there's something in me that causes me to hire strange people. At least it keeps it interesting. :)

  3. The lemonade-rite is seriously SO GOOD. perfect summer drink!

    1. It was so good! I had no idea that Bud Light made those and that they were delicious.

  4. Lol. Yeah, I think I need to stay with my Sauconys for now. They're still great shoes, maybe I just need to stick with what I know.
