Long Short Weekend

This weekend seemed to last for a lot longer then a ridiculously short 2 day weekend normally does. Usually I blink and it's over but for some reason on Saturday I felt like the next day was going to be Monday but it wasn't. I still had one more lovely day.  The last two weekends have been packed with social outings but this weekend we didn't have much planned which was nice.

Saturday I woke up and cleaned house.  I dreaded it so much but was so glad when it was over.  I also got the laundry finished.  That night we went to dinner at a friend's house for an Irish meal.  One of them is actually Irish.   The corned beef and cabbage with potatoes was really good.  I drank some wine, Mj had some beer, neither one of us wore green while doing it and that was the extent of our St Patty's day celebration.
Laundry is Fun-NOT // Grocery Shopping // Watching Figure Skating & Blogging // Mj doing taxes
Sunday we did Insanity first thing in the morning.  Insane right?   I was hanging in there okay with the cardio until the drills.  That's when it got REALLY hard and I had to stop a lot.  It's a tough work out and that's only the first one.  Mj is planning to do it for 60 days but I'm not that crazy.  I'll probably just jump in there and do it every now and then until he gets to the harder ones and then I probably won't be able to do it at all.

Next on the agenda was the ordeal that is grocery shopping.  We haven't really been on a proper shopping trip in about two months.  We've only been picking up little things here and there so it was time to make that trip to the commissary.  We spent $170 which sounds like a lot but would have been a lot more had we not been on base and it should last us for a while.  I really don't like grocery shopping but it's not as bad when  we do it together.  Our pantry was a mess.  Mj totally re organized it as we put everything away.

The tax man finally did our taxes.  It was just Mj and Turbo Tax gettin' it done.  He's been our tax man for the last three years and each time he gets better and better at it.  We don't owe!  We are actually getting a nice chunk of change so that's cool.

For dinner we made Tostada Pizza.  I love this Pizza just as I love all Pizza in general.  I'll be posting the recipe soon.  We had Margaritas on the rocks with it.  I used a skinny margarita mix that has only 10 calories per 1/2 cup left over from my trip to Vegas last year!  It's about time I finished it up.  We watched an episode of Breaking Bad and Walking Dead.  Then watched The Office while eating Jello.  I forgot how good that stuff is. 

We got a lot of quality time in together just being at home and getting stuff done.  It was nice not to have much to do.  I really need that every now and then to re group.

That sounds like the perfect weekend!! I love those times when you don't have commitments and are just able to get things done/relax. Sounds like you guys did just that! And tostada pizza sounds delicious...please post that recipe soon! :)

OMG I did one of the videos of insanity and I loved it!! It was brutal and I did it a few days before my half marathon so probably not the best idea but it was definitely a challenge...only thing i didn't like about it was it being hard on the knees!! I wish mr. Pancakes would get to doing our taxes!! Go Mj!!

Our taxes are still not done. I am still waiting on one form! annoying. I don't mind grocery shopping but I enjoy it more (even though I spend more!) when my husband goes with me. It also takes a lot longer, but ehh.

What a nice weekend together! Y'all did more than we did for St. Patty's day, I don't think we even acknowledged it lol. I had no idea you guys lived on base! And what is a commissary? G and I went grocery shopping too for the first time in a couple weeks. I actually like grocery shopping but not the money it costs! I can't wait for you to share that recipe, sounds so good! Oh! I have heard such good things about Breaking Bad, and we tend to like the same shows so I'm thinking that will be our next show. Walking Dead is getting crazy!

I think I would be horrible at Insanity. I can picture it right now, lol.

What a productive weekend! Def more productive than mine was!

Your posts complete make me want to re-watch Breaking Bad.

I totally forgot to wear green and wore all black yesterday. Oops. We had margaritas too. I forgot how sweet they are! Ugh, I'm not used to that. I think the sugar was worse than the actual alcohol!

Haha...I felt the same way this weekend! I remember telling my BF on the car ride home how nice it was to have a weekend that almost felt endless...if only that were the case, eh?

Well aside from the cleaning, this sounds like an awesome weekend. ;) I love chilling, watching shows, and of course eating! Don't get me wrong, I love the "GO" weekends, but everyone needs this kind of weekend too. :) I am looking forward to your recipe!

Will does our taxes through turbo tax too! I REFUSE to do taxes. When we got married I told him that either he was doing it or we were paying someone. I get too stressed that I'm doing something wrong, so I figure leave it to the pros! We are lucky that our hubby's do it for us ;)

The color on your walls are kind of close to the color in my bedroom. Its also the color of Tyler Perrys walls in his home - although he has murals painted on most of them. But you have great taste! LOL

Sounds like a pretty chill weekend. I rarely have those. LOL!
