Monday, why do you always come so quickly? I enjoyed this weekend and actually felt like I got a lot accomplished. Normally I feel like I just scratched the surface of what I need to get done but this one was different. So lets recap this weekend of accomplishments.
Friday: Friday I went to the gym and got a quick workout in. My legs are still sore from my leg workout on Thursday so it was a biceps and cardio kinda night. After some dinner I picked up a movie at RedBox and hit up CVS where they had a Buy One get 50% off so I scored a few lip glosses.
I settled in with Seamus and the movie.
Side note: I was coughing and feel like I am getting a cold. 🙁 Pretty much anything with Jason Statham I will watch, because he is hot, he has an English accent and he kicks butt in his fight scenes, enuff said! I watched Redemption.
Saturday: This was all about shopping. I had a lot of places I wanted to hit so it was a well oiled plan of attack. I hit Target for some office supplies and a mailing envelope. I went to the Post office to mail a knitted hat to Emily @ The Beauty and the Greek Blog. Then it was off to Wal-Mart to pick up some dog food for Seamus. Kohl’s was the next stop where I got some new sneakers. I have been having a little bit of issues with my ankle and my knee from an old injury so hoping these will help, plus they look cute!
I then went to JoAnn’s Fabric to grab some supplies for my Halloween costume. Yes, I am making my costume. Yes, Halloween is awesome! What of it?! This is just part of the costume while will be a tulle skirt, but that is the only hint you get for now.
I finished up the shopping extravaganza with some grocery shopping. I took Seamus for a 3 mile walk and then settled in to a few episodes from the second Season of Homeland and rested for a bit (okay I napped for 30 minutes). Seamus always keeps me company.
Ohio State was playing at 8pm so I was tweeting and watching the game which was a nail biter. It was way to close of a game and ended just before midnight with a touchdown at 5 seconds to go!! Thanks for the mini stress attach Buckeyes but I will take the win!
Sunday: Sunday was a very restful day thanks to getting more of my errands done on Saturday. I finish some laundry, dishes and taking out the trash stuff that needs to get done. I settled into this Fall Baking magazine to get some inspiration while enjoying a cup of coffee in my Ohio State mug. I posted the image on Instagram and it was liked by the QB of the Buckeyes – Braxton Miller!! It’s probably not even him, but I’ll take it, it kinda made my morning.
I did some food prep and reading. Currently reading Then Came You by Jennifer Weiner. Since it was raining all day it was a snuggling kinda day. Seamus was a big snuggle bunny. He slept while I was reading, then shortly after I took the picture he got up and snuggled up next to my side, when that wasn’t enough he plopped right in my lap on top of my book. He likes to snuggle on his own terms.
The Patriots played at 1pm so I watched the game, finally took a shower during the half time then it was time for my blogger meetup. I was a bad blogger and didn’t take my camera out at all. Though I snapped a pic of the menu so it counts! It was such fun and all the girls were so nice, and I liked that they all write about different topics!
Just want to add in that poor Seamus got sprayed by a skunk this morning and it is horrific. I gave him a bath then took my own shower and I got to work and i can still smell it on me!! Poor thing was in the corner of my bedroom where he never goes and looked so sad. His eyes were watering and he threw up a little probably trying to get the taste and smell of it out of him. Poor guy!

Those shoes are so cute and POOR SEAMUS! Yuck. I hope he is feeling and smelling better this afternoon! And I’m glad you had fun at the blogger meetup!
It was a rough morning for sure! I went to work and they sent me home because I guess I was smelling of skunk too even after I showered. 🙁 After two baths for him and another shower for me we are both smelling better. I am washing all clothes, sheets and blankets and candles are lit and windows are open.
The meetup was really great. All the women were so nice and I loved that they all were knowledgeable in different areas. Really great time!

Seamus is a doll baby! I love seeing his pics! I’ve been slacking on pics of Tilly lately. YAY for bloggy dates!! I had one this weekend too!
Yes, Tilly needs to make a few appearances. Poor Seamus has to be subjected to such much paparazzi shutter bugs! 😉 Yeah for your bloggy date! They are the best!

I’m SO excited for my hat! You are seriously THE SWEETEST!
Your dog looks like the best cuddler! Precious! Looks like you had an awesome weekend!
You are very welcome! Just hoping it fits okay!
Seamus really is the best cuddler!!
Loved Then Came You! Glad you had fun at the dinner- sorry I had to miss it!
I was wondering if you were going to make it! Maybe next time. I am really liking this book, especially after just finishing a book that was really blah!

I need new running shoes pretty badly!! Can’t wait till I’m able to get some. I feel like I’m getting a cold too. Here’s hoping we recover quickly and stay healthy!
They are so comfy and really help prevent injury! Hope we both fight off getting sick!
SMD @ Life According to Steph says
Ugh, I feel awful for Seamus!
Love your new Adidas!
It has been a long day of cleaning, and bathing. Still a faint smell in my living room but candles are on and windows are open. Phew! Can’t wait to break in my new sneaks!
Ha! My weekend also consisted of Redbox and beauty products…basically an ideal combination!
Those are the best kinda weekends!! Especially with all the rain we have been having!
poor little buddy:( that’s no fun, glad you had a fun wekend! Love the new shoes!
Thanks! Poor things was shaking in the bath. 🙁 He smells great now though. I love my new sneaks, so comfortable.
ohhh no! skunks are the worst! how awful!
Yeah, it made for a very rough morning but he is smelling like roses now!
You always have such good deals at your CVSs. I swear, we never have buy one get one 50% off at our drug stores! ugh!
That stinks! It seems like every other day they have sales, but that might just mean they are overpriced to begin with every day.

I hope you are feeling better! And poor Seamus. You prob already know this, but did you try bathing him in tomato juice? We had a dog that got sprayed and that’s what we did. Didn’t take it away completely but it helped. The worst part was we were visiting family out of state and had to drive all the way home with her smell hahaha!
Thanks for linking up for MMG 🙂
Thanks, we are both smelling much better! 😉 My Vet friend recommended a mix of 1 pint of Hydrogen Peroxide, 1 TBSP Baking Soda, and 1 Tsp Dawn mix and rub in, let sit for 5-10 minutes then rinse. It worked wonders! I gave him a regular bath after and he smells great now.
Oh no, I couldn’t imagine having to drive home with that smell. 🙁
