Scenes From The Weekend

Having traveled last weekend for a quick little getaway, it was nice to have a low key, relaxed last couple of days. I had loads I wanted to get done around the house anyway so it came at the perfect time. And we even managed to fit in a little fun.

Friday night, we decided to hit up the Omaha Lancers hockey game. Not being much of hockey people, this is still a new experience for us but let's be honest anywhere we can get stadium nachos, a pretzel & cheese and a bunch of other goodies and we are all in. It was Frozen night so we figured Cruz would get a kick out of seeing Olaf, Elsa and Anna, although the announcer kept pronouncing Anna's name wrong and every.single.time. Cruz would shake his head and yell "it's Awwww-nuh" in frustration.

After Pilates Fusion on Saturday, I took the rare opportunity to run to the grocery store for a little kid-free shopping and came home and made this grilled cheese for Cruz and this Skinnytaste roasted cauliflower for Nick and I.  And, yes I need a recipe for grilled cheese. Don't laugh. And both were delicious. Speaking of Skinnytaste, do any of you have the the cookbook? It's back on Amazon so I think I'm going to order it this week. I have followed her blog forever and love her recipes.

In the afternoon, we headed to my niece Dayvaney's dance competition and I tell you that girl just impresses the hell out of me. She is SO GOOD. Doesn't seem nervous at all. And just look at how cute she is. I will say Nick continues to be so interested in the fact that dance companies can get away with dressing little gals up like this (and this was her more conservative outfit of the day). I just can't believe that they require specific Sephora brand or more expensive make-up for their looks and their warm-up gear is all Lululemon. It is quite the business, I tell ya.

Because I prefer not to make dinner on the weekends - or ever, for that matter - we headed to DJ's Dugout so Nick could watch basketball and Cruz & I could play some keno. Below he's studying the sheet to ensure he picks us some winners.  Later, we had a big ol' Mango slumber party in our bed when we got home. I think we all were asleep by 9:30pm. It was amazing.

Sunday was pretty uneventful, not really even worth mentioning, so let's talk glasses. As in, I got some new ones and I'm pretty excited.

Ever since Cruz started rocking these glasses, I decided I needed a pair of my own and started looking whenever I came across them in stores. I just never could find a pair that fit my face and didn't make me look like I was playing dress up.

Enter these bad boys. It was like the stars aligned when Firmoo contacted me and asked if I wanted to review a pair of their glasses. Um, yes please. How did you know I have been searching high and low for the perfect pair?

Yes, those are selfies. I still can't talk Nick into just being a good blogger husband. Working on it, though.

And if you are looking to change up your look a bit, check out Firmoo. They have both prescription and just for fun frames and I was shocked at how quickly they shipped! I got this pair and you can hardly tell they are dark green frames, but I love the little bit of color. If you aren't sure how you will look in glasses, check out the frames on this page to receive yours for free or this page are 50% off frames! You can't beat it and let me tell you it's pretty fun showing up and surprising your family with your new look.

Although I'm pretty sure Cruz still pulls the look off better than me. Dang cute kid face.

However, as I'm finishing this post, Cruz runs over to me with the bottom of his shirt balled in his hand and tells me not to touch it.

Me: Why?

Him: Because I'm pretty sure I peed all over it.

Aaaaand back to my reality....

Have a great week!  Linking up with Biana.


  1. Love your Firmoo glasses! I have a pair and man are they asweoms. Amazing customer service, too!

    Hockey games are so much fun, glad you were able to get to one. I would have been just as annoyed as Cruz about the Awwwww-Nah thing ;)! Looks like a great weekend! Hope you have a great day!

  2. I seriously love your new glasses! And we all know Cruz totally rocks his! :) He's so stinkin' adorable! Glad you guys had a good weekend! I agree with you, I don't like to cook on weekends, or ever either. Ugh. I wish I had an in-home chef! And yes, these dance competitions are no joke! They get so serious about that stuff. I don't even own that much Lululemon stuff, I definitely wouldn't be buying it for my kid! Haha! Happy Monday girl!

  6. Sounds like you guys had a great weekend! I love that Cruz would correct the announcer on how he said Anna lol. And love your glasses! I have contacts so I rarely wear my glasses but I have them, you know, just in case. But I hate them to hopefully just in case never happens! lol
    Also, I have the SkinnyTaste Cookbook and LOVE it!!! Definitely buy it!

  7. We were so happy you took time out of your busy Saturday to come support Day! She was feeling the love for sure!!! And we both think that since Cruz was having such hard time not being able to sit still during the music, maybe dance classes should be in his future?!?!? We do happen to know of a great studio and let's be honest, how cute would that kid be on the stage??????

  8. Love your Firmoo glasses!!! They look so great on you and pretty cute on Cruz, too ;) I laughed out loud at your Instagram picture at the hockey game - at least you all had a good time!! Happy Monday!

  9. What a lovely weekend…. Have you tried Skinny's cauliflower rice? Insane!!
