This weekend we spent most of the day at the pool. Lately, it has been raining here and it was not a good pool weekend last weekend, but we wanted to try to get some sun time in this weekend.
Yesterday, I got my hair colored. I get it done every 6 weeks. My hair is a little darker at the top at the roots, and the rest is all blonde. It makes my green eyes just pop. I love it. My hair girl does such a good job and it is definitely Boujee on a Budget. She didn’t charge me for layering my hair and angling my bangs, all she charged me for was the color.
After my hair appointment, since I was in the neighborhood, I went to see my parents and my dogs. Once, I parked next to my dad’s SUV, I saw the dogs come running up the back walkway. I got out of the car and opened the gate, and stepped inside my parents’ backyard. I love when they run up the walkway. I bent down, kissed them, and pet them little, before going inside. I hugged my dad and went inside the kitchen. I love stopping by my parent’s house even if it is just for a brief minute.
In the kitchen, my mom made us coffee, and I got a bowl of cereal. We chatted for a bit, and told them about last night (Drew and I went out with his Aunt and Uncle for dinner.) We had a good time out with his Aunt and Uncle and are hoping to eventually one day buy their house when they are ready to move, but we have a while to go and so do they, but it something to think about. My parents want to move, but they are waiting to see where we end up.
After spending some time there and catching up, I went home to my husband so we could get ready to go to the pool. When I walked in, he just finished making breakfast. Then we were going to get ready to go. I brought in the rest of the Hint water. I was raving about this water to my parents. We drink it all the time at Drew’s parents. It has no sweetener, no calories, just fruit infused water from non-GMO plants. I love it. I haven’t tried all the favors yet. I have tried Peach, Blackberry, and I think I tasted the Lemon Cayenne ( I wasn’t a fan). I do like Lemon anything mostly, just not mixed with Cayenne. My mom said, that the Hint water might have been giving her a headache. She didn’t want to chance it anymore. I understood and didn’t mind taking the cases of water home. Andrew and I inhale it.
When we arrived at the pool, it wasn’t as packed as we thought it would be. We laid out our towels, and put some sunscreen on. I wasn’t sure if I should get my hair wet being that I just got it done. Kim said, if I wet my hair before going in the water, I should be okay. I didn’t want to chance it, so I put it up in a ponytail, and put a hat on and played it safe in the shallow. I did lay in the water, but my head was on the steps. I didn’t want to risk it.
We stayed until 2:30PM. We had errands to run and dinner to make. I wasn’t feeling it since I couldn’t get my hair wet. We were planning to come back again tomorrow anyway. When we went home, we got showered and then got ready to go to Walmart. We needed a shower caddy to hang over the shower head to hang out loofahs on. Also, I got some Olay micro bubbles body wash. He needs hair styling creme, and deodorant (so exciting.) I also grabbed a case of Lemon La Croix sparkling later there. That is also very Boujee on a Budget. La Croix is cheaper at Walmart but you only get 8 cans vs. 12 cans at your local grocery store.
After Walmart, we went to the grocery store and got our groceries for the week. Lately, we have been on this fish kick. We try to eat a lot of fish. I got some salmon burgers and this giant thing of salmon that was marinated in sweet bourbon. We picked up some chicken. I get tired sometimes of the same old, same old, but our work schedules don’t allow time for us to really change up our dinners. I would love some suggestions if you have any!
On the way home from the grocery store, Andrew said, “oh wow it is going on 7pm. I think it might be too late to cook. Do you just want to order pizza? Pizza Hut had that $7.99 deal for a large two-topping.” For some reason, we both were craving Pizza Hut. I agreed to the pizza. I honestly didn’t feel like cooking with it being so late.
When we got home, we unloaded the groceries, I put in some laundry, and he called for Pizza. I took some more laundry downstairs. When Andrew, left to go get the pizza I picked up my book the Death of Mrs. Westaway. I haven’t had much time to read it lately. I need to finish it before I start grad school, and before it is due back to the library. I am not going to have time to read for pleasure here soon at all.
Once he came home with the pizza, I put the book away and opened the door for him. We ate pizza and watched Smallville. We are on season 4 now. I have such an affinity for Superman, especially Tom Welling.
Today, it was more of the same. We went to the pool, and once we arrived there I wet my hair in the locker room, and then came outside. I was excited to get in the water and swim around. Once we found our spot, we laid our towels down and put some sunscreen on. The weather app on our iPhones said, rain around 2pm-3pm. We were hoping we would have time in the sun before the rain arrived.
The clouds rolled and the first couple raindrops fell around 2:00pm. We packed up to leave, as I type this it is now 4:11 and the sun is out and shining through my living room window. It never fails. When we got home, I got showered, and then made some guacamole. We are addicted. We watched one episode of Smallville, and he is now doing some work from home.
Eventually, I will have to cook dinner. I am not looking forward to starting a new week. The weekends go by so fast. I hope everyone had a great, safe, and happy weekend!
