I can’t tell you how excited I am for this weekend. It is the first in the longest while that I have no plans and can do nothing. I do have plans to go shopping at Ulta, go hiking, read, and recipe testing. Let me tell you it will be equal parts productive and equal parts lazy. Did you really expect anything less?!
Favorite Links: I don’t have kids at the moment but if and when I do Jana’s 12 Things I Don’t Do as a Parent would be my guide.The “every kid is a winner” and overly attentive helicopter parenting that too many parents have adopted would not be my style. Worth the read! Also with the world seeming to fall apart every other day, and social media seeming to be the place where everyone shares their opinion good, bad or ignorant Steph shared her take on the recent news stories like the Ice Bucket Challenge, Suicide/Depression and Ferguson Missouri. Very well written,
Favorite Song: Seriously I am becoming a country girl, I don’t know what it is but the boys are lulling me into the dark side. Never mind that they are pretty hot. This one features Billy Currington without a shirt on for most of the song. You’re welcome.
Favorite Recipe: For the last few weeks I have been having the Special K Bacon, Egg and Cheese flatbread sandwiches for breakfast. Then the other day Melzie posted this sandwich to make at home. Duh?! Why haven’t I thought of this same money, and less calories too. Click on the picture for the post.
Irony at it’s best!
What are your plans for the weekend?
kathy @ vodka and soda says
you know, i kinda had a feeling he might be gay. not that it matters but when i first got that feeling, i thought man, women around the world are going to be sad about this one! no matter though, he’s an awesome actor 🙂
It totally doesn’t matter because he will still be eye candy! 😉 He is a really great actor and has played some really gritty independent roles that I have loved.

Sounds like you have a perfect weekend planned!! Hopefully your friday is starting out well…check my blog out to find out why 🙂 That is quite the mouthful on that last name, but I totally laughed too!! Happy Friday! xo
I am hoping it will be relaxing. Heading right over. I laughed a little too hard, it was cute though. Happy Friday! We made it!!
hahahahahah sergei bootitsky would make me crack up for an extraordinarily long time as well!!! lol Also have a lovely quiet weekend. You deserve it!
It still cracks me up! Haha! Thank you. Hope you have a fun weekend!

A weekend of nothing sounds perfect!
It is much needed after a few hectic ones. Hope you have something fun planned!
Jana @ Jana Says says
Thanks for sharing my post! I think you’ll be a great mom someday even if you don’t follow my rules 🙂
That last name is hilarious and I totally laughed when I read it. It sounds like you have a fabulous weekend planned and I wish we lived closer so we could go to Ulta together and buy all the NYX products!
You are very welcome! Thank you. I think we have very similar view points. NYX has so many products I love, and Ulta is like 5 minutes from my house, dangerous!
Nikki @ The Pink Growl says
I haven’t heard this news about Darryl – I’m confused! I do love Boondock Saints too though, one of my all time favs.
I know I was shocked because I never thought that watching it, but either way he is still drool worthy. 😉
Liz @ Fitness Blondie says
Kerry, no. Kerry… please tell me that Darryl is not gay. I can’t handle it. I haven’t heard about this either but I can hope it’s not true. I am all for the gay community; my sisters are gay, but damn leave us some men! LOL. Eric and Jason had a weird sex fantasy scene in True Blood a few episodes ago and I was like NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyways, I loved Jana’s post about 12 things she is doing as a parent, it’s so damn true and your weekend sounds FANTASTIC! Can’t wait to see what you cook up, I love your recipes so much. I pin every single one of them. What are you getting at Ulta?
PS: I will text you tonight from your email the other day about boys and work. Lots to fill you in on.
It will be a shame but I will still drool over his adorableness! I really need to catch up with True Blood. Thank you. I got so excited when 3 different ideas popped into my head for recipes to try out. I want to get some NYX concealers for contouring, and maybe some glosses though I am bound to end up with more. Look forward to catching up!
Gay or not eye candy is eye candy! Haha. I love lazy weekends! I go back to work (school) next week and am just trying to soak in the last bits of lazy/productive days I can!
Amen, girl! I am going to still lust after him either way! 😉 Yes, you have to enjoy the quiet while you can!!
omg i used to be obsessed with Billy and that whole album. yum yum.
boobtitsky?! that has to be a joke lol
I must say, I don’t watch the walking dead! we tried a couple of times but never made it more than a few episodes.
He has gotten dreamy. I was seriously laughing a little too loudly when I first saw it. Say what?! I’ll forgive you for you bad choices! Hahaha, just kidding!
SMD @ Life According to Steph says
I’m glad you have a do nothing weekend! Fabulous!
I loved Jana’s parent post too. Thanks for the shout out!
Very much needed! Though I am sure I will pack in 25 items from my to-do list. I was nodding my head so much during her post. Your post was very well written and I agreed with a lot of what you had to say. So much hate in the world that it really needs to be addressed.
OMG that name is so bad! If he has a wife, I bet she kept her maiden name…
I’m thinking they did the Darryl thing just to get people to talk about the show again since it isn’t back for another month. But you’re so right, no matter who Darryl is into, he will still be the eye candy of the show!
I want to see what you get at Ulta. I’m not a makeup person so I need some guidance!
Haha! I would keep mine for sure! Yes, it could totally be a publicity stunt. I will still drool and swoon. I am hoping to get out without spending a ton but we shall see.
i am getting up at 5am and driving 5 hours for my nephew’s 5th bday! lucky 5s! 🙂
Oh my word! Lucky 5’s for sure. Hope you have a safe and fun trip! I am sure he will be excited to see you!
Let me know how the breakfast sandwiches turn out once you try to make them!
Will do. Hoping to make them tomorrow morning.
Happy do what you want weekend, those are always the best!
I love love love that song by Billy Currington!
They are the best! He sure does know how to makes us swoon!
Those breakfast sandwiches look so good! i love the lean pockets sandwiches but def should try making my own to save $$!
Yes, save money, calories and you know what is going into them. Much better!
Bri @ My Life As says
Ok A) Love that Billy Currington song. I saw him at the San Antonio rodeo in Feb. B) Darryl was in a LTR with a supermodel for like 5 years…and they have a kid together. I mean it’s possible but I don’t think so…
Ohh I am jealous, I am new to the country scene but I really want to go to a concert. Yes, with Helena Christensen, but they are talking about his Walking Dead character. I totally didn’t get that watching the show.
Wait what about Darryl? In real life or his character… Where have I been?
He character only. I am not sure if it just a teaser marketing stunt but I was shocked since I didn’t get that vibe watching the show, but either way swoon!
Kateri Von Steal says
Boondock Saints – YES
Irish Accents – YES
DROOLING DROOLING DROOLING
Then i see the egg sammich – DROOLS SOME MORE!
Such a great movie! He is some serious eye candy. The egg sammie is getting in my belly this weekend!
Where did you read that about Daryl? I mean, more power to the show writers, but I thought he’d bang beth or carol. lol.
It was actually a few sources. I totally thought there was some vibes with Carol for sure.
I’m gonna be really sad if he is gay cause i’ve been shipping him and carol forever…
I totally thought he and Carol had a thing. Not sure what they are going to do, maybe it’s just a rumor to drum up buzz.
Melzie @ Ribbons & Rotor Blades says
Omg those last two photos had me laughing out loud. I absolutely feeling like that last one come Thursdsy of every week.
And thanks for the shout out! I hope you enjoy them!! They’re so good!!
Okay, so is the rumor he’s gay on the show or in real life?????
It is exhausting! Of course, I am excited to try it. Supposed to be on the show, definitely not in real life.
Linda Sheridan says
Enjoy your weekend and may you happily and easily accomplish all that you want!
I love Ulta, especially when they have some good coupons and their rewards system
is better now!
Goddess speed with your work situation. Time does fly and it will be October before you
Love, SMD’s Momma
Thank you so much! Ulta has so many good deals I had to try and restrain myself. Hopefully October comes faster than it feels. Have a great weekend!
Bahaha that irony one is the best!! I also loove that Billy Currington song, good choice 🙂
Probably too busy reading it to stop. Haha! It is such a good song, it is fast becoming a favorite of mine.
Love Steph and Jana’s posts this week! Both on point!
I am always trying to hold back at laughing at inappropriate times.
Those breakfast sandwiches are genius!
Have a great weekend!
It is so hard not to laugh like a little kid. I am so excited to make them while save money, and they probably taste much better. Hope you have a great weekend.
I laughed so loud at that hockey player’s name. I do believe I might have the mentality of a 12 year old 😉 We’re hopefully laying low this weekend, although I do have big plans to spend too much money at Sam’s Club. Livin’ large over here!
I will be in that classroom with you! 😉 Haha! Sometimes those weekends are just a need, rather than a want. Sam’s club can be dangerous, so many goodies in 5 gallon buckets! Hehehe!
lol I laughed at the hockey player’s name too. No shame! I haven’t watched the walking dead yet. I guess I should… hmm…
It’s a great name! You should, it took me awhile to watch it since I am not into the whole zombie thing but it is more than just that part.
Brianne Bracco says
Bahahahaha!!! I laughed so hard when I read that goalie’s last name. Guess I’m 5 years old too 😉
It’s all in the name, baby! 😉 Laughter keeps us young right?!
I love Billy Currington… def my favorite song of his, too!!! I could hump for DAYS to that shit.
Good lord I adore you!!! Haha!
Those frozen breakfast sandwiches is such a great idea !!
Much healthier and cheaper than the frozen options.
Haha, I am dying over Boobtitski! Hope you have a great weekend!
Glad I am not the only one who thought it was hilarious!
Oh my gosh, the hockey player!! I’m laughing so hard. How is that so funny?! Hope you have a great weekend!!
I had a fit of the giggles reading it too.
yeah the whole “everyone is a winner” type of parenting now is probably not what i’ll do either. just seems to set kids up for disappointment (and/or a sense of entitlement) later!
Yes, it does more harm than good. Life is not about everyone winning so why wouldn’t we train them better for real life?!
