Weekend Recap: The Most Low Key Weekend Ever

This weekend was JUST what I needed: no plans, lots of downtime, a couple naps, and plenty of binge watching of the Olympics.

Friday got started with a bang when my team won our canned soup drive at work.  Let’s just say my team is SO competitive (something I’m not!) and they literally bought out all the soup in the River Valley.  We donated over 1000 cans of soup from our team alone!  The other 5 teams gave another 1000 or so cans…so we donated a ton from our work.  Because we won, we get a jean day today (woohoo!).

Friday after work, I went to the gym to workout.  I forgot my headphones, so I did a bit of cardio and weights…but was getting bored without music.  So I went into the Zumba room and finished my workout by making up some new Zumba dances.

After the gym, Tyler picked me up and took me to dinner.  He was DYING to try the parmesean crusted torellini from Olive Garden, and it didn’t live up to his expectations. ha!  When we went into dinner, it was hardly spitting snow…and when we came out, the roads were covered, slick, and traffic was moving slow.

Because my car was at the gym, I had to drive home in it.  I was SO nervous, but I’m glad I drove home because my car did pretty well.

We continued to get snow all night as we watched the opening ceremony of the Olympics (which btw, my commentary: too much Russian history.  Would have liked some live performances or something).

We woke up to several inches of snow and a completely frozen pond!

We did venture out with my parents to get brunch and go grocery shopping….then we stayed at my parents for a couple hours while I sewed and Tyler watched speed skating with Gram.

We came back home and Tyler went hunting while I curled up on the couch with my fleece blanket to watch MORE Olympics. #junkie

Sunday, I sang at church, so it was a bit hectic getting there early and coordinating being in both services at the right time to sing…but it’s an honor to serve that way.  I love hearing how people were touched by my music.

After church, we got lunch, came home and tidied up the house, and then went BACK to church for a Date Night event.  It was a dinner with a speaker (and childcare for those with kiddos), and it was fun.  We sat with my parents and our friends Mandy and Chris…and laughed the whole dinner.  Mandy even won a gift card! It was too funny because it was the LAST door prize…and she just knew she had won.  She was whooping and hollering for the pastor to draw a name for the last prize and get on with it…and by golly she won!

The speaker was very light hearted and fun and encouraged us to remember why we love each other, remember to communicate, laugh at the mishaps, and serve each other.  A great reminder.

Hopefully after work today, I’m going to tag and title my new car with mom…and I say hopefully because there is more winter weather coming supposedly.  I hope we get it all done before more snow moves in!

Have a great Monday!

What is your favorite winter Olympic sport?  Mine is probably skeleton, figure skating, or ski jumping (I changed my answer after watching some this weekend, Taylor!). What about you?


  1. I’m a sucker for the figure skating, though I watched a little of it all this weekend!

    *Just reminding everyone to make sure they have followed my new blog….. πŸ˜‰ Thanks!*

  2. I could watch downhill skiing all day long! Last time I saw the forecast they had changed it and said we aren’t supposed to get as much snow. Which of course means we will get 4 inches! πŸ™‚

  3. I can’t really get into the Olympics at all. I did however watch some of the Cross Country skiing this weekend as my friend’s daughter is on the Norwegian team. So that’s kinda cool.

  4. jean day? i forget how lucky i am to have casual days everyday at work. I can’t wear nice stuff though cause i never know when i’m gonna have to work in the warehouse.

    it was a nice peaceful weekend for me, too. I just read and was lazy. I did finish the book i had been working on, though, which made me feel like i actually accomplished something instead of just staying in my pjs all weekend.

  5. Sounds like you had the perfect weekend! My favorite Olympic sport is hockey since my fiance plays. Happy Monday!

  6. Sounds like you had a great weekend. We had a low key one too. Boyfriend has a head cold and I took advantage of it to cook and clean a lot while he was occupied with Olympics. I also wrote out nearly a month’s worth of blog posts!

  7. I haven’t watched any Olympics this year. It sounds like you had the perfect weekend. Lots of resting took place.
