Monday Update

I've been a bad blogger lately. I need to work on posting more frequently! Oh and Happy St. Patty's Day. Good thing green is my favorite color.
Since it has been so long since my last post, here s a snapshot of last week:

I went to the Lady Antebellum concert on Wednesday night with my friend Alex and her younger sister. It was such an amazing show! 

It did however result in a couple too many beers, far too few hours of sleep, and a miserable Thursday and Friday trying to catch up.
Also last week I started a little experiment on my kitchen table - forcing tulips. A full DIY post to come once they bloom (fingers crossed) but look they are growing!
Then this weekend was full of fun and Family!

Friday night James and I had dinner with my parents and my little sister who is home for spring break. Then we strolled down to one of our favorite beer drinking spots, Tap House for a couple beers with friends.

Saturday we had dinner with James' family, grandparent, aunts, uncles and cousins included. Then I headed to the Dutch Goose for some green beer and U of I alumni shenanigans! They put on an alumni St. Patty's day party, so I couldn't resist.

Then even more family Sunday as we headed over to my parents house for our extended family dinner. (Oh and I went early to have my dad help me with my taxes - that's a whole other story). Dinners with my extended family is chaos. I have 6 cousins under the age of 5, and it is pandemonium. Luckily since it was so nice out they went down to the park and James and I sat out back with the dogs enjoying the weather!

For those of you who saw last week's post of my list of "to do" things on Get 'er Done here is where I ended up. Not the best:
  1. Clean the master bathroom - sinks, shower, floors
  2. Clean the kitchen and living room - wipe down all surfaces, vacuum, mop floors
  3. Clean up the yard - take care of Gunner's little "treats" in the yard
  4. Pull weeds and ready my flower beds
  5. Laundry - wash sheets/bed spread, and all clothing laundry needing to be done
  6. Organize/pick up my closet
  7. Go to the gym at least one weekend day (technically just went for a run, but that counts right?)
  8. Put together lunches for next week on Sunday
So I only did 5, not 6, and definitely not all. Do you make a to do list each week? Any tips on getting through them?

Oh and always - loving this cuddle bug.
 This Monday is infuriating. Is it Friday yet?!

TTFN Friends!
