The Weekend & Favorite Things

Linking up with Bella and Lisa today for
Dateless in Dallas

This weekend was filled with lots of movie watching with X.
To be more specific...
we watched Cars and Cars 2 all three days!
Over and over!
He cried when it was time for bed and he couldn't watch anymore.
He was worried for McQueen when he was in last place in the race.
And I swear I heard some "vroom, vrooms" from him while he was sleeping :)

In between all that movie watching I had barre class on Saturday morning, 
followed by an outdoor session of couple's yoga on Saturday night.
Afterwards, we all enjoyed some good food and drinks at The Wishmaker House again.
It was another night of good friends, good stories, lots of laughs, and making more memories :)

My in-laws kept X for the night, meaning this mommy was finally able to get a good night of sleep!
And sleep I did!
We stayed out pretty late (for us) on Saturday night, so by the time we went to bed it was after 2am!
I probably could have slept all day Sunday if able.
We woke up at 10:15am on Sunday!
I can't tell you the last time I slept in!!!!!
It was glorious!
This having X sleep over at Grammy and Grampy's house is great! lol!

Of course once we picked X up and brought him home we were right back to watching Cars! :)

It wasn't super warm out, but it was nice enough to make dinner on the grill.
We enjoyed some yummy ribs, corn, and watermelon for dinner and then called it night :)

What did you do this weekend?

Now onto Part 2!

Time to link up with Andrea & Erika for the Favorite Things Party!

One of my absolute favorite things this past month is the the Merona tanks from Target!

They come in a variety of colors (20 different solids & 3 striped versions), long and lean look, no ribbing, and wash and wear over and over really well!
Oh yeah, and they are only $7 online right now!
I have picked them at the store on sale 3 for $24.
On top of that they were on my Target Cartwheel app for an additional savings (I believe 10%), and then I used my Target red card to get another 5% off!

If you are looking for a great tank for the summer at a really great price, check out Target today!
You won't be sorry :)

What is your favorite item under $10 these days?

*These are my own opinions. I was not contacted or compensated by Target or Merona to write this post.


  1. Cars is on repeat at our house too! One of my son's favorites! I took my very first Barre Class on Saturday morning too! Still a little sore this morning, and you did Yoga Saturday night, you rock! Glad that you enjoyed your evening out, Grandparents are the best aren't they?!

  2. so cute how he loves Cars!!! I dont think I could convince B to do yoga w. me. I need to send Breanna to my parents soon Im just not sure how she will do...guess Ill never know until I try lol

    Sounds like a great weekend!!!

  5. Hahaha!! Love that we both had tanks on the brain!! Thanks for linking!!

  6. Love cheap tanks like that. Always using them in the summer and want every color possible. So looks like I need to check out target.

  7. Those tanks are such pretty colors!
    X is looking so much older!!

  8. That Favorite Things Party linkup is so cool!! I'm all about things under $10! I actually watched the movie Cars for the first time a couple of weeks back - it was so cute! Stopping by from Weekend Recap!

  9. Not sure where to post this but I nominated you for a Liebster Award. You can check it out at

  10. I'd give anything to sleep in and wake to silence. Since we had the twins I think we've had someone keep them just once. The more kids you have the less likely you'll find someone to take them all for the night.
    Would have loved to do the Yoga night. we just hung out all weekend

  11. I just bought 2 of those tanks a couple of weekends ago and have already used them to layer several times already. They are pretty great at a great price!
