The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly [Weekend Recap]

April 27, 2015


Erin Schrader

This weekend was one for the books, both good and bad. We’ll cover both parts for all practical purposes.

this part…obviously good. 
To start out with, Friday night went both better and worse than expected. What began as a simple dinner out with my husband and some friends turned into a couple of Moscow Mules (literally two) later which thus resulted in a very fun time and a very sick Erin. This was both troublesome and horrible timing because the very next morning (Saturday) I was participating in our town’s local Amazing Race. I’m not saying that I was roofied but I am saying that the last time two drinks made me this sick was never. I’m either getting way too old to hang or the bartender realllllly liked me. I’m going to go with option one.
Long story short, have you ever woke up at 6 am on a Saturday morning knowing that you have a full day of physical and mental labor ahead of you feeling like you want to die? Well, I did. Thankfully some coffee and one McDonalds hash brown later and I was ready to run. And so that’s what I did. 
At 10 am our team took off and 3 hours later after doing some of the craziest stuff all around town we finished in 7th place out of 24 teams. Not bad all things considering. 

If you haven’t even saran-wrapped yourself to 3 co-workers while having to walk down a basketball court to each pick up a stick and walk back to drop it in a bucket, I highly encourage you try. Saran-wrap. Always cheap entertainment.

Saturday evening my family got together to watch home videos from 20+ years ago which had to be the most amusing thing I have done in a very long time. Apparently at age 4 I still didn’t know how to talk and I was afraid of everything. Including pink Barbie cars and blowing out candles. 
Next things next, Sunday rolled around and while doing a little landscaping shopping at Lowes I 
realized I no longer had my drivers license or debit card with me meaning I lost it at some point time on Saturday. This is only somewhat of an issue because I am flying this week and last time I checked those TSA people are pretty adamant about having identification (rude, I know). To keep my freaking out at bay I decided to attend a “lets learn how to paint!” workshop because that seemed like something a girl who can no longer have more than 2 drinks should do. Not sure if any of you have ever heard of Annie Sloan paint but apparently this stuff is the shiz. I know this only because it costs a decent amount of money. Anything expensive is obviously important. I also know it is awesome because you no longer have to sand something before painting it which is pretty freaking exciting if you are anti-sand like me. Needless to say our bedroom furniture shall be transformed soon enough. And by that I mean most likely in the next 5-10 years. 
And that pretty much covers my weekend folks. 
Stay tuned for this weeks posts which will consist of my most recent Stitch Fix goodies, our completed guest bathroom before and after, updates on our other home projects, a post about really good wine, and perhaps a few other things sprinkled in between. Please pray that I make it to Arizona and that I don’t get sent back home for improper identification. I’m not kidding either. PRAY PEOPLE PRAY. 
Okay, thanks. Goodbye.
