This week’s TGIF is brought to you by YouTube and Pinterest … ;)
The high of my week was making the game saving play during our epic slo-pitch battle with our “rivals” Sunday evening. (Really, we actually get along, but it’s always a hard-fought battle when we play them!) I also got my hair trimmed on Wednesday which was AMAZING because it’s been about 3 months since it was last cut and the ends of my hair were starting to look horrid. My hairdresser even looked at my ends with a shocked look on her face and asked, “IS THIS MY CUT?? Your ends are awful!!” Needless to say, they are beautiful now, lol
The low of my week was some random sadness that came over me the other day while thinking about my Grandma. It was actually the first “moment” I had since we had spread her ashes back in May. It was really strange, but I guess it just goes to show that it doesn’t matter how long someone is gone for, you’ll still miss them no matter what.
A blog post I loved was not actually a blog post, but a video that a friend had sent to me after a hilarious discussion we had about Pinterest. It’s by WhatsUpMoms and it’s a Taylor Swift parody. I laughed so hard because it’s seriously the TRUTH:
The best money I spent was on a new purse I bought from Aldo. My old purse was falling apart – the strap was constantly falling off and it was driving me crazy. I finally was able to go to the mall where I found a nice, new purse, on sale to boot!
My favourite Isla moment was discovering that she can sing her ABC’s! The other night while she was in the bathtub she randomly just started singing them. I thought it was a fluke, so I asked her to sing them again so I could try and get it on video, and she did! Now it’s one of her favourite songs to sing.
The song that has been stuck in my head is “Stay with Me” by Sam Smith. It’s been on my iPod for a while now, but after watching Maiya Sykes sing it during The Voice blind auditions it’s been stuck in my head. And man, Maiya was CRAZY GOOD! (I’ll just add that the contestants this season are all amazing, and I’m loving Gwen & Pharrell as the new coaches.)
My favourite meal of the week was this American Goulash recipe I found on Pinterest via Gonna Want Seconds. I’ve been wanting to make an actual goulash for a while now, and this one was super tasty! (A bonus that Isla DEVOURED it as well!) It was so ridiculously easy to make, too.
My plans for the weekend are slo-pitch on Sunday, as per usual! And hopefully just relaxing a little on Saturday!
What are you weekend plans? What are your go-to recipes that I should absolutely try?
