The worst thing for an almost daily blogger like me is the worry that you have not taken enough pictures to recap your weekend.
But here’s the thing. I couldn’t take any pictures Friday night because I was way too focused on driving through the snow. It only snowed a few inches but it was so bad to have to drive in while it was coming down, at night no less! It took me an hour and a half to get somewhere that normally takes 10 minutes.
In my old age, I worry so much about the other drivers on the road. My car handles really well in the snow (love my car 🙂 ) but my fear of everyone around me only heightens as I get older. I couldn’t help but think about my younger self who would cruise around after blizzards like nothing, but now? Forget it. I think and worry about everything.
I also think this was my car’s first snowfall! And oh how a white car gets dirty.
After my long run Saturday on the treadmill, I ran a few errands, took my son over to his friend and then headed to the mall to do a return at the Gap. In the process, of course I found us a new top. I say us because I think you need it too. Please get all the colors, it’s a good one and a great price. If you order online, remember that the Gap runs big!
And then of course I stopped at the Bloomingdale’s Dior counter to say hi to my favorite makeup artists. I feel like I want/need a new nude lipstick and thought I liked this one but then after reviewing the selfie I took of myself, I think it’s the wrong shade. This is why I never really make lipstick purchases the first time I try on a new color. I like to wear it around, look in mirrors and take pictures to decide. It’s too blah. I understand nude is blah by nature but some nudes can still brighten the face while being blah.
And I am OBSESSED with my new scarf. Obsessed. I even wear it around the house!
Totally missed pictures from dinner Saturday night but I did share a random slice of Linda’s Fudge cake (I say random because we didn’t have dinner at Cheesecake Factory) to cap off the night.
I had to be up and out early Sunday morning to get my son. He slept out because I had plans Saturday night so I needed to pick him up and get him to a baseball card show and then to his outdoor hockey game.
From there it was home for him to shower and then off to my friend Lisa’s house so the boys could watch football and us girls (Lisa has two daughters) could do girly things.
Lisa is the best cook. Lucky for me, she had just made a giant stockpile of her chunky lentil soup. You can add more vegetable broth to the lentil soup when you heat it up if you want it thinner but we both like it chunky so we can chew our food. I loved this lentil soup and really think she should share the recipe with us for the blog.
My son has always loved to go to Lisa’s house since he was a baby. I think a lot of it has to do with not only her pantry of snacks but the mozzarella sticks and other treats she stocks for the kids to eat.
And oh, it’s been Hanukkah for days now. I believe it ends tomorrow night. My son asked me if he would be getting a dog on the last night of Hanukkah. Like, not only are you NOT getting a dog but haven’t you learned that the last night of Hanukkah is usually the leftover, after thought, you are lucky to even get anything 8 nights into Hanukkah already type of present?!Recapping my weekend on the blog! #weekend #lentilsoup #Gap #shopping #snow #ontheblog Click To Tweet
How was your weekend? Best thing you ate?
Are you a soup lover? Do you make it from scratch?
