Weekend Update . . .

Today I am taking part in the Weekend Update Blog Hop with Dana, Leeann and Sami for the first time!

Friday night I ate leftover Halloween candy and watched episodes from the 1st season of Revenge on Netflix with my sister and Graycie. (I have seen them all but my sister hadn't . . . as much as I LOVE Revenge I may haven fallen asleep on her. . . whoops) At least I fell asleep before I could eat any more candy . . .

I spent most of the day on Saturday catching up on shows that I had pvr'd during the week. I normally have at least two weeknight meetings so I never get to watch my favourite shows (Arrow, Chicago Fire, Nashville, Grey's Anatomy, Vampire Diaries) when they 1st air so I have to play catch up on the weekend. The only shows that I get to watch are Revenge (my hands down favourite show) and Once Upon A Time when they 1st air since they air on Sunday nights. Wild horses couldn't drag me away from my tv on Sunday nights

At 8:00 pm we sat down to watch the last regular season game for the Riders. It was AND we lost :( BUT in our defense we left behind a bunch of our good players since the results of the game didn't affect the playoffs. I also invented a delicious new drink to enjoy during the game. I had been dreaming of Vodka Cranberries all day (my guilty pleasure) but when it was time to watch the game I realized I was all out of Vodka (how does that happen?!) I did  have a little bit of Malibu Coconut Rum leftover from the Summer so I worked with what I had. There was a recipe on the back of the bottle that combined a shot of Malibu and orange juice, and cranberry juice. I never would have thought to add cranberry juice to Malibu but decided to try it out anyways. I didn't have any orange juice so I substituted the orange juice with Diet 7-Up... and the results were heavenly! It will be one of my go-to drinks from now on

On Sunday I woke up when my alarm went off at 8 am (if I don't set an alarm on weekends I will NEVER get out of bed). Saskatchewan doesn't do time change, so imagine my surprise when I go upstairs to get coffee later in the morning and see that is in fact 11:40 not 10:40 like I had thought.  For some reason my Iphone decided to participate in time change and I actually woke up at 9:00 am not 8:00 am (good thing it wasn't a weekday!). It may have only been an hour but it really messed with the flow of my day

In the afternoon my Mom asked me to help her get a Pinterest account. When I was setting it up this is exactly what she asked me 'Do you have to have THE Facebook to get Pinterest?'. I can't even make this stuff up . . .

Then the best thing ever happened: Someone called about buying my car, Gretchen. I bought a new vehicle, Eleanor the Equinox, last October and had been half ass trying to sell Gretchen ever since. After a million phone calls back and forth with the potential buyer he let me know that he would be coming THAT DAY to pick the car up. They drove 2 hours (mostly in the dark) and by 7:00 last night my car was sold and I had a shit ton of cash in my hands

Selling Gretchen was a HUGE weight off of my shoulders since I bought Eleanor a year ago and have been making payments on BOTH vehicles. The $ I made off Gretchen will go towards paying what is left on my car loan, a large chunk towards my savings and the rest towards my trip to MEXICO (only 47 days away, but who's counting?)

I really needed this low key weekend because from now on ALL of my weekends are booked up until after Christmas . . .  I had to enjoy the calm while I could

8500 smackaroos... Too bad I have to be responsible . . . A trip to Vegas is much needed . . .
I'm gonna miss my baby :(


  1. I think I am the only person who hasn't seen Revenge. I will see if I can catch up online. And congrats on selling your car... Spend that money, girlfriend!

  2. I was rolling about your mom's comment about THE FB... That is sooo my mom also! She thinks the world revolves around FB and all things are linked to it!
