Sequins and Sea Breezes: Weekending - The Long One

Weekending - The Long One

11/27/2017


Happy Monday my little turkeys! I hope everyone had a fabulous long weekend. I don't know about anyone else but I'm feeling nice and refreshed today. I wish we had more 4-day weekends, it's nice to just have a few extra days to recharge the batteries. 

Wednesday after work, Kerri, the group and I headed over to Kate's for a nice, low-key birthday celebration. We had some delicious apps, some bubbles and lots of laughs playing Cards Against Humanity. The weather was super nice so we sat outside and enjoyed the fire pit which was nice and relaxing.


Thursday was of course Thanksgiving. We stayed local and just relaxed at home, made tons of food and watched football. We have a tradition of smoking a turkey every year and this year did not disappoint, it was amazing. Sadly I completely failed on taking any pictures of the food but I did get lots of puppy snuggles which were well documented. 


Friday was the start of rivalry weekend for college football. UCF played long-time in-state rivals USF, at home so we headed down to take in the festivities. It wasn't the nicest day but the weather didn't keep the stadium from being packed. It was SUCH an intense game, a lot of back and forth, with the craziest moments of the game happening in the last few minutes of the game. Luckily we were able to pull out the win but despite being one of two remaining top 25 ranked teams that are still undefeated, we don't have a chance at the playoffs. We won't even get in to how corrupt that system is.



Saturday was for recovery. I woke up with no voice, my ears ringing and my entire body sore from jumping up and down and being so tense during the day. I did some early morning yoga then spent the day on the couch before running out to do a few errands and then watching a movie before calling it an early night. 



Sunday I was finally feeling recovered so I started my morning off with a run and a delicious homemade keto breakfast. I decided to give the keto diet a try this week to try to detox a bit so wish me luck!

  1. I'm not sure if it's just my computer but for some reason none of the pictures are pulling through?! So I'll use my imagination about everything! What a great way to start the long weekend at Kate's with all the friends. We had our first smoked turkey last year and I have wanted one every since -unfortunately we had the regular oven one this year LOL! Good luck on the Keto diet - can't wait to hear more about it!! Happy Monday! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  8. It sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving weekend, except for maybe waking up with no voice after the football game! Starting off with Cards Against Humanity is always a good idea, and hooray for your team being undefeated! And puppy cuddles are seriously the best! I got a few of those this weekend with my parents dogs!

  13. I can't see your pictures either! I totally need to detox after this weekend. I totally over did it. Great minds think alike, I have been reading up on the Keto diet and was thinking of trying it. Although, I like almond milk in my coffee and almond milk from what I read is not allowed.
