InstaTuesday Meets My Weekend.

Today I thought I would give ya’ll a little glimpse into my past weekend and while I am doing that I thought since I took all the pictures with instagram I would link up with Jane for InstaTuesday as well! I know I know most people do a weekend recap on a Monday but I like to be a rebel. 
Lets start with Friday shall we? 
Friday after work I decided it was a good time to go and get my nails did. Ya see heres the deal. I used to get the gel tips and while I LOVED them I was just getting to my wits end with them. The girl who usually does my nails started her own salon and she is crazy busy all the time and the people who she has working for her have been doing my nails and lately they just SUCK! So over the last week my nails had been lifting so I just ripped them off. I go 8 of my 10 nails myself. My fricking pinky nails were hanging on for dear life. So I went to the salon and had them take them off and I got a gel mani. Enter ORANGE nails. 
Exciting Friday night I know. Be jealous!
Saturday morning I got up and headed to the gym as per the usual. I went to pump and then combat. When I got home I decided that it was a good idea to tackle the lawn. It was outta control. I busted out the lawn mower poped in my ear buds and went to work. When I got done I was covered from head to toe in sweat AND grass clippings. The joys of being a single girl living alone! But I do have to say it was one hell of a extra workout! 
After I finished mowing the lawn I showered and then wound up crashing out for a good hour. I can not tell you the last time I took a nap on a Saturday and let me tell you it felt GREAT! I got up and continued to be lazy for the rest of the day. Saturday night I started to get bored so I took a stroll to Modells to get a new pair of gym sneakers because I thought it would be a good idea to mow the lawn in my current gym sneaks. FAIL Nikki FAIL! I wound up getting a cute pair of gray MENS sneakers. A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do sometimes. Then I heded to Target. I walked outta there with a PINK DVD player! 
Not bad for $27.99! 
I also cooked dinner on Saturday. I wanted to try the Creamy Avocado Pasta that I saw on Pinterest. 
It was a total fail. IDK something about it just didn’t do it for me. I also made some balsamic chicken to go with it. DELISH! 
Sunday morning I teamed at the gym with my friend Ceasar. Then I took pump. I had to go home and shower and get ready to go by moms for a while. Her family from WI was in and we were also doing cake for Nicholas who just turend 7

Speaking of the little bugger…


Talent right there ladies! TALENT!

How was your weekend? 

  Hugs, Nikki

    I love your orange nails! That color looks fantastic. I have never mowed a lawn, crazy I know. So, I had no idea you got COVERED in grass clippings. I totally understand why our landscapers wear face masks and head to toe clothing. I always thought they were nutso. Hmm the avocado sauce sounds amazing. Especially with balsamic chicken. Bummer that it didn’t taste good! Thanks for linking up!!

    Stopping by from Taingamala! I had no idea how awful it was to mow the grass until my husband deployed and I had to do it myself. I hired someone to do it after that, haha! But yes, it IS a workout! Good for you for doing it yourself!

    And I definitely would have tried the avocado pasta – but since you mentioned it was bad, I can now imagine that it probably was kinda bland. The chicken looks great, though!

    I’m your newest follower! 🙂
