Memorial Weekending Things

So I kind of forgot about blogging this weekend.

Last weekend I pre-scheduled all of my posts so I didn't really write for about 10 days. Then this weekend there was always more sunshine to be out in, always another nap to take - always more sweat to get out. Needless to say, starting this draft at 1am Monday morning means you're going to get a photo dump more than a lesson.

:: When there's poop in your city's water you make sure to attend a community volunteer clean-up event where they've promised bottled water. #pdxboil


:: You also attend that event when your amazing mom is the one who puts it on each year.

:: Nap Friday night (even though I said I wouldn't) = no going out for fun with Kayla.

:: 1 Mile / 100 Pull ups / 200 Push ups / 300 Squats / 1 Mile = no gas left for hiking with Brooke.

:: I went swimsuit shopping. I didn't cry. I bought three bikinis (!!!)

:: Being home with mom and dad on meat prep day is a great idea.


:: I will accept meat as payment for computer help services:







:: Time spent with the sisters fills my heart more than most things I can think of.



:: A clean car is a happy car - can you believe she's almost 10?? Thanks Dad!



And that's enough! How about you - what did you learn this long weekend you're dying to share?

Go wish Tracey a happy Honeymoon - Melissa and I left her a present today on her blog.

Are you linking up with Katie today?

Looks like a great weekend Water with no poop is always a good thing haha Also I do the same thing with my parents I raid the kitchen for any and everything and my dad washes my car. In my defence Im too short to wash the top or thats been my excuse!

Woo hoo for bikini shopping and buying 3, go girl! I slept in 3 days in a row and it was heavenly!

Looks like a wonderful weekend lady. And sometimes, life is more important than a post, no sweat. xoxo

Lora Ashley said...

Hooray for the swimsuit shopping!

And I accept food for payment anytime!

Kenzie Smith said...

That is so awesome that you volunteered this weekend! I was wondering why at the zoo there were a bunch of "don't drink the water" signs, makes sense now.
I definitely take food as payment for my services, I love food.
Yay for bikinis!!
I'm a Focus driver too ♥

Chloe said...

I love food. I'll do whatever your parents need me to for food that looks that good. =)

Is your sister chewing on your shoe? lol. They are too precious!

Nadine Lynn said...

Three bikinis? You go! And not crying while trying them on is the best non-scale victory I could ever think of! One day I will be there!

I too find food an acceptable form of payment.

Have a great week!

Melissa Suggitt said...

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

Damn, your car looks good for 10! Mine is 14 and is just now starting to show a little rust on the outside. The inside is a hot mess though... bahaha! But no one sees that so who gives a shit, right?! :P

Kasey Lynne said...

you fell asleep on friday night again?? how many times have you had to cancel plans because of your dang naps?? hahahahah

Amy @ Living n Learning said...

I learned that as soon as I post to social media about snuggle time with my pup he knows and shortly after abandons me for his own half of the couch. Silly guy.
