10 Things, Volume 28

{Weekend Update Link up with Join the Gossip & Sami's Shenanigans}

1. So I had an awesome week at work last week - until my computer erased everything I had worked on for 2 days. So I was super stoked when Friday came around....

2. I snuck home a little early to get some quality time in with C before our friend Brazos showed up to hang out with us for the weekend.

3. Being on Whole 30 and trying to not starve your guest (and husband, honestly) is proving to be a little tough... but the boys made substitutes all weekend. Potatoes for sweet potatoes. Fries for roasted cauliflower. Beer for water. You know....

4. We spend a lot of time outside enjoying the absolutely perfect weather we had all weekend. Grilling twice during a weekend in January is such a blessing. Plus, now I have grilled chicken for the week! SO much better than baked chicken.

5. Hooray for Jennifer Lawrence for winning a SAG last night. Love that girl ♥

6. So we played possibly the nerdiest board game ever this weekend: Eclipse. We watched a 1-hour YouTube instructional video, each read through the instructions ~2 times, played 3 games (2+ hours per game) and are still learning the intricacies of the game.


7. And I totally dominate the last round. Take that boys!

8. Whole 30 mayonnaise. That happened. We'll see how it holds up in the chicken salad I used it for. I'd never even made real mayonnaise before.

9. And I joined everybody else and made a Vine profile this weekend. It's super fun! Really excited to see if anything comes of it. {click on images to see the 6-second videos ♥}

10. On a sad note, my family had a tiny emergency this weekend, so I'm headed home today to be with them in the hospital. Please keep my family in your prayers. We're staying positive and strong, but it's still scary when a loved one isn't home safe & sound where the should be.

Happy Monday ♥


  1. Keeping your family in my thoughts. Hope everything is well.

    Besides that, looks like you had a great weekend! :)

  2. Oh no! I hope everything is okay with the family! I'll be sending good thoughts your way :)

  3. Wasn't Jennifer Lawrence just stunning?!?! I heart her so much!!!

    I love your necklace... it's so adorbs!

    And I will keep you and your family in thoughts and prayers. Hope everything is okay :)

  4. Good thoughts to your family! I hope everything is okay.
