GOT #ForTheThrone

Monday, April 29, 2019

Unless you have been living under a rock, you probably know that GOT stands for Game of Thrones.

It could easily be one of the best shows created.
Don't get me wrong...when I first heard about it years ago I had absolutely no interest in the show.
A couple of years ago Mic decided he wanted to watch it and I still had no interest.

However, when your husband is watching the show within
ear shot you pick up on what is going on.
I still wanted no part of it.
But the more I heard, and the more I saw when walking by or doing household chores nearby I got the gist of what was going on.

By the end of season 1 I was actually sitting down to watch the show.
GOT is nothing that I typically like.
It is so well written that I just couldn't resist it.

After a couple of seasons I actually found myself looking forward to future episodes.

Fast forward to today.
I was so excited for the 8th and final season to begin.

I actually haven't started watching it yet, so all those spoilers out there are getting really hard to avoid.
I want to watch the final season with Mic, but it has been so long since the last season he doesn't remember where we left off :(

If he doesn't jump on board this week, I am taking things into my own hands and watching it alone.

Do you watch Game of Thrones?
Who is your favorite character?
Who do you think will end up sitting in the iron throne?

Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!

The Friday Faves #16 & #17

Friday, April 26, 2019

I have a double dose of favorites for you today!
So grab some coffee and read on :)

A couple weeks ago X came home with a certificate that he was Student of the Week!
I had a heads up since the school shared a picture earlier that day :)

He also had his best game of the soccer season with 6 goals!
And he was the goalie for the first half of the game!
So proud of him :)

We have headed over to our property quite a bit on the nice days to check things out and to get some fresh air.

I couldn't help but laugh when I saw this on the wall in the bathroom while out on our many adventures/errand trips!
Head here to see all of our April fun and more!

I finally shared my Round 2 results from FASTer Way to Fat Loss  :)
Next round begins May 6th!

Last Wednesday we hit up soccer practice...

Which was immediately followed by our first baseball practice of the season!
It was a long night!

Good Friday was the 50th Wedding Anniversary for my in-laws.
They decided instead of a party, they would like the 5 of us to go out to dinner.
So we headed to an amazing dinner in Columbus....and this was the only picture I took! lol!

My FIL is on the hunt for a couple bar stools, so we swung by @Home after dinner.
While he looked at stools, this kid tried out every single piece of furniture in the store :/

It rained like crazy Friday and Saturday morning, so X's soccer game was cancelled.
But it cleared up before we headed back to Columbus for a birthday party for a good friend!
The kiddos had a blast bowling, playing arcade games and celebrating Marco turning 7!

So many of my pictures were blurry because of all the moving around, but they truly had a great time!

We headed home to relax a bit and head to bed because the next morning the Easter bunny was coming!
X loved his make-shift Supply Drop basket! (Fortnite related)

Then we cleaned up and headed over to my in-laws' house for Easter Lunch!

X was off school on Monday and shockingly Mic closed the office too (I didn't complain),
so X and I headed out to get all the extra baseball equipment he needed and then checked out the new Hobby Lobby.

This kid had a blast checking out #allthethings in Hobby Lobby!

X picked out this sign for his room...

Sometimes if it weren't for giving birth to him, I wouldn't believe that he is mine.

And that is it my friends!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Linking up with Andrea, Narci & Erika today!

What's Up April!

Wednesday, April 24, 2019

Happy Wednesday!
I can't believe how fast this past month has gone!
It is already time for...

What We're Eating This Week...

Bun less Philly Cheese steaks
Pork loin and Corn on the cob
Spaghetti & meatballs

What I'm Reminiscing About...

These two best buds on their very first "play date" 6 years ago!

Look at how much they have grown...

What I'm Loving...

All the changes that continue to happen from doing the Faster Way to Fat Loss program since the beginning of the year are truly amazing!
I shared my results from Round 2 here :)

What We've Been Up To...

All the soccer games and practices...

And lots of going out to eat after late games...

We had our first baseball practice last week...

Mic and I have been going to so many stores and such to get our hands on #allthethings we need to pick out for the house.
Of course that can make you hungry ;) so we have tried out a few new spots like Dickey's Barbecue Pit...

And I couldn't resist taking a picture of this in the bathroom....
#iamlikea12yearoldboysometimes ;)

And we celebrated a good friend's 7th birthday!

What I'm Dreading...

Nothing at the moment!

What I'm Working On...

I mentioned above we are focused all on the house things these days!
From floors to lights to faucets...

Any tips on how to stay sane during this process is much appreciated :)

What I'm Excited About...

X playing baseball this year!
We just picked up all his new gear this past weekend :)

He totally suckered me into these Cleveland Indians batting gloves!

What I'm Watching/Reading...

Once again DirecTV was acting up so I searched for something light hearted on Netflix and decided to give Schitt'$ Creek a shot.

Oh my goodness do I love it!!!
I am through season 2 now and I can't get enough of it!
Do you watch it?

I am still watching The Blacklist, trying to get an episode in of The Voice here and there when I get the chance, and my dad convinced me to watch The Village and now I'm hooked!

I haven't been reading much these days.
Heck, I haven't been able to read any blogs lately either :(
But I'm trying to catch up as much as I can! :)

What I'm Listening To...

All the country music and pop hits right now...

What I'm Wearing...

My go-to denim jacket (I have the light and medium wash) has been on repeat these days now that we are finally getting some warmer temps!
And I broke out my camo sandals finally and love them!

And this camo skirt!

What I'm Doing This Weekend...

X has a soccer game and then I am heading north for the annual Duck Races fundraiser :)

What I'm Looking Forward To Next Month...

Soccer season ending, baseball games beginning,
Memorial Day cookout,
and the school year coming to a close.
X has had a fantastic year and we can't wait to see what 2nd grade will offer in the Fall!

What Else Is New...

Our house is moving along!
I shared some pictures of the before here.
Picking out all the hardware and such is exhausting for someone who doesn't care that much about it and doesn't like to shop! lol!
For those of you who have built a do you do it?

XOXO ~ Vanessa
