Weekend Recap!

Hey everyone, I'm still trying to figure out the weigh-in posts vs the weekend ones. If I did my weigh-ins on Wednesdays or something that rhymed, it would make this all a lot easier.

Friday night, me and all the cool kids went to the gym. I needed to get a run in to help combat the Thursday's indiscretions and the pie tastings of day. For the pie-bake off I made a blueberry sour cream pie and and a cream pie with meringue on top. I'd never made a cream pie before so I had to cut in and make sure it set properly. (It did)

I called Kevin before I left and asked him if he'd heard of the new Pokemon Go game. He had not, I explained it, and a few minutes later, I got this picture.

Apparently the other variations of Poke Your Mom were already taken.

Everyone at work was playing and I downloaded the game and yea, a lot of Pokemon searching happened this weekend. 

I got up Saturday morning and went to my 8am Jenny Craig appointment. Every week Kev asks me why I don't let myself sleep in, and every week I figure that it's better to get up and get it over with before the day starts. I wake up, get ready, they to go to the bathroom as many times as possible (you know you do too), don't eat or drink anything and drive to the center. 

I texted Kevin the results of my weigh-in and he asked me to get a bagel sandwich.

I found this bat thing in there. And so it began...

Just like most Saturdays, I headed to 1010 Body Pump class after having my breakfast. Thankfully this week I didn't hurt myself. Don't ask how, but last week I dropped a weight on my right boob. Just don't ask...

It was a good class, the really, really annoying old dude wasn't there this week. He always complains that people don't say hi to him and he argues with the instructor. A pure gem that fellow is.

I went home and showered, had my afternoon snack and soon it was time for Kev and I to head to pool. It wasn't oppressively hot Saturday, which was nice.

But first, we stopped, well, I stopped to get lunch and bring it to the pool. 

I'm really not a big fan of the pool, but Kev wanted to go and we had a lovely time. I got a little bit of sun and got sweaty again. I listened to a podcast and it was lovely. 

After the pool, we sat around a while before heading to dinner. We again went to Vin Rouge in Durham. Vin Roue is always a favorite of mine, but we don't make it to Durham all that often. But for some reason, over the last 11 weeks of weigh-ins, we've been there 3 times. I mean, I'm not complaining, I eat the same thing every time and I love it.

Steak Tartare, Frites and a Cosmo. Note Kev's dish of cheesy potatoes.

It was a really nice night and Kev wanted to go take a walk down 9th street in Durham and look for dessert. Let me tell you, there are all sorts of Pokestops on 9th Street. We might have caught a few Pokemon after dinner.

Kev wasn't thrilled with any of the choices, so we headed downtown Durham to Revolution instead. I haven't been there in a few years and I seem to recall there being a lot more people there on a Saturday night. This night, not so much. It was kinda sad. At least Kev's apple tart was good.

I had a tea and caught a Weedle on the table.

After dessert, we wandered around looking for more Pokemon. Before you laugh, we saw at least 7 other people doing the same thing. 

Sunday morning dawned bright and early, and I did my usual thing of laundry, cleaning the kitchen, eating my JC Breakfast Scramble and getting groceries. 

After I got back from getting groceries, I went to the gym. I did 20 minutes on the treadmill and then I went to Body Flow for some yoga.

I got home, showered and now it's time to do some blogging. A pretty uneventful Sunday. Nice and peaceful.

Kevin is watching Ocean's 12 and they keep talking about the master thief, Lamarque I've been singing along Les Mis style for the last 30 minutes. Thankfully Kev loves me.

Lamarque is ill and fading fast
won't leas the week out, so they say
with all the anger in the land, how long before the judgement day?

He finished the lyrics.

Have you downloaded the Pokemon Go app yet??
Epic Mommy Adventures


  1. Oh my gosh - All the Pokemon. I havent downloaded it but all the pressure is getting to me. I may have to give in.

    1. Kev and I had a blast running around and catching them. Every day he askes if I found anything new. lol

  2. I downloaded Pokemon but I just dont get it? Maybe I am doing it wrong. I never played Pokemon when I was younger...I think I was a little too told when it came out. I am more a Mario person. Everyone is so obsessed with it though so clearly I am just too old to understand or something hahaha. Maybe I will catch on eventually. All your food looks yummy!

    1. I still don't really understand all of the battling and fighting at gyms, I just like catching them. I was also too old when Pokemon came out, so I;m not really sure what the goal is, I just want to catch more of them. :)

  3. Pokémon! I actually got in a crazy steps this weekend because my brother and I were hunting them. We saw TONS of people out and about. No shame in my game I am loving the game!
