Videos, engagements, etc.

FYI, this is going to be very random.

You’d think I was the one who got engaged based on how excited I am and want to tell everyone.

Weekend Recap: What’s a weekend?

Good morning! I’m back! Hello!

Fall is trying to kill me, ya’ll. (<– also, why do I say ya’ll? Born and raised norther Wisconsin girl and I still say ya’ll. Makes no sense.)


Let’s look at my “weekend”. We’ll start last Thursday since it’s been a hot minute. But if you ever want a play-by-play of my life, follow me on Snapchat – JustJessie23 πŸ™‚

So last Thursday I left work for my event at 9 a.m. We picked up one of our priests and headed down to Milwaukee <3 for a site visit at a private banking space we’ll be having another “Tango” at in December. After my site visit, we headed out to Hartland where we drove around for a bit, had a pit stop at Starbucks and then set up for my second event. (These events are called “Tom’s Last Tango”, btw.) The view wasn’t too shabby.

Chenequa Country Club

My event went very well, I met some wonderful people and caught up with some that I haven’t seen in awhile.


We didn’t get home until 10 p.m., so I went straight to bed. My alarm went off at 5 a.m., but I reset it and decided to go into the gym later. I went to work, had a super busy day and then went home. Back to the gym around 8 p.m. and it was pretty quiet!

Gym time

Saturday morning I woke up pretty early to go help at my coworker’s event on campus – required volunteerism. πŸ˜‰ Not too bad, though, the weather was great!


Unfortunately with this new FLSA regulation coming about (which I know is out there to help people like me!), this is probably the last year I’ll be able to “volunteer” for this, so I enjoyed my time.

The rest of the night was spent on the phone with friends who are smarter than me, educating me about the FLSA thing. After awhile of burnout, I got myself some Chipotle and then headed to TJ Maxx for a little me time.

All I got was that pink under armor bra in the background. πŸ˜‰

On Sunday, I slept in a tiny bit (though not very long … I hate cats) and then spent about five hours working on client social media posts and scheduling those out for the week. I also did laundry, went grocery shopping, did some meal prep … all kinds of stuff! And then I spent the night watching the Packers lose. Boooo.

Now it’s Monday! I was up at 5 a.m. (though my body was angry) and at the gym.


Those undereye bags are real, yo.

After my workout, I went back home, made some breakfast and went to work! Typical.


For some reason this outfit makes me feel like Esmerelda from The Hunchback of Notre Dame.


I know, it makes no sense.Β Something about the hoops …

And now off to work I go! I don’t have any events this week (hallelujah), but I do have to catch up on my social media clients, my YouTube, work my other part-time job and MAYBE blog on this little thing more than twice a week? Maybe?

How was your weekend?

Screenshot It! #5

I actually don’t have as many screenshots this week! Probably because my phone was running out of storage so I had to delete a bunch. Whoops!

(ha, this is actually a true message I got the other day)





Food prep


That’s all she wrote (or screen shotted), folks!

How’s your hump day going? (<– P.S. I hate myself for saying that.)

Weekend Recap: work, work, work, work, work

It’s Monday again! I had a very “short” weekend due to a 16-hour day on Saturday for one of my events, so lemme tell you about it. πŸ™‚

On Friday, I was unbelievably tired. I still got up and did my workout (which I’ve been sore from ALL weekend) and then my entire day was spent getting ready for my tailgate on Saturday.

Tailgate Shopping!

Super healthy tailgate, obviously.

After work, I met my friend Kayla for a margarita and dinner. Well, four hours later … (And I didn’t take any pictures) I love that Kayla lives back in Green Bay now. I missed her! After dinner, I ran to Target to get a few things and then home to go to bed.

Saturday was an early morning! I got up at 5 a.m. and was at work, pulling out of the parking lot with my colleague by 6 a.m. We drove the 3.5 hours to Lisle, Ill. and set up our tailgate.


Successful event! We had over 100 people there and a lot of younger alumni, which is always a struggle at my events.

SNC vs. Benedictine

After the game (we got whooped, btw – boo), my colleague and I left to head up to a site visit. After that, we ate dinner at Portillos which was AWESOME. Yum. And then continued to drive home. We got back to Green Bay around 9 p.m., unpacked the car and then off to bed I went. I was so exhausted … which you can see in the next picture of me when I woke up on Sunday.


My dad, mom and I went to brunch at The Cannery (new place in GB) to celebrate my dad’s 60th birthday!

Unfortunately I got extremely sick after eating and ended up going home while my family went and played around GB. I didn’t get sick from the food – I haven’t been feeling great all week – but yesterday my body basically didn’t let me eat anything. Super sick to my stomach all afternoon and night. πŸ™ So I just got some work done.

Social Media

And now it’s Monday! I’ve had this post up on my computer all day because I’ve had meetings all morning! But I got a new dress that I’m wearing today πŸ™‚

New dress

Woo! Okay, back to the crazy day. Hope you’re enjoying your Monday! Linking up with Katie.

How was your weekend?

{Vlog} Chicago Travel Day!

We made it to Friday – woohoo!! Sometimes short weeks feel EXTREMELY long, but maybe it’s just because I worked a 14-hr day yesterday. Normal work day today, plus dinner at Margaritas with my friend, Kayla! I have an event tomorrow in Illinois, though – leaving GB around 6 a.m. WOOF. It’s gonna be a long one!

In the meantime, yesterday (while I was wallowing in self pity that I’m not in Ireland right now) I was finally able to edit my Day in the Life vlog from Chicago last week!

Have a wonderful weekend!

What are you up to this weekend?

This entry was posted in YouTube.

Ireland – One Year Ago

I can’t believe that one year ago I was in Ireland. A place I had dreamt of going for YEARS and then I was basically handed a trip (okay, I was handed two tickets, but still). Since I’m going to be so busy crying all day (seriously), let’s take a little trip back through my recap posts. πŸ™‚

Chicago -> Dublin -> Dalkey

Catch-up + Tutu Tuesday + Weekend Recap

Hey! I’m alive! Sort of. I’m currently sitting on my couch at home after a crazy night of either food poisoning or my stomach just trying to rip itself out of my body. That’s still TBD. So with that, I figured I’d catch you up! Unless you follow me on Snapchat (ahem … justjessie23) – then you’d already know most of this stuff. πŸ™‚

So we’ll start back on Thursday. I headed out of the office around 10 a.m., stopped for some lunch in Manitowoc and then kept on driving through to Chicago (that’s a lie – I probably stopped three more times to go to the bathroom). Once I finally got into Chicago (first time driving in the city by myself – woohoo!), I got to my hotel which ended up being a nightmare. Basically it was super old and nasty, but I survived.

Weekend Recap

At least it had good lighting? ^^ πŸ˜‰

I was able to walk to my event from the hotel (the whole reason I booked one downtown instead of outside of the city) and we had a pretty good turnout! Plus, I got to talk to a few of my friends in the area (shoutout to Laura for sticking by me the whole night) and the event was over in no time.

Weekend Recap

After my event, I hurried back to my hotel to change my shoes and hit the road to meet up with Marette at Mercadito. SO GOOD. We both had tacos and a watermelon margarita and I want to go back right now.

Mercadito Chicago

I don’t want to talk about the fact that I got so lost getting there that I started panicking, so finally gave up and hailed a cab. #NotAChicagoGirlYet And Marette and I also realized after we got in our separate vehicles that we didn’t take a picture together and we’re horrible bloggers. But it was fun and I can’t wait to see her again soon!

I got back to the hotel around 10 p.m. and headed BACK out to meet up with Ben. He and I first started following each other on Instagram forever ago, then it went to Snapchat … so we already knew everything about each other. We had a drink at Broken Shaker, which was a really awesome little place (thankfully just down the street so I didn’t get lost). We kind of got lost in conversation and all of a sudden it was 12:30 a.m. Whoops! And I didn’t take any pictures because … I didn’t?

Friday morning I slept in a *tiny* bit before heading south to Orland Park to meet up with a friend/parent that is going to be hosting one of my big events in November at Crystal Tree Country Club. Beautiful! After meeting there and getting all of the logistics of my event figured out, I headed back out to drive back to Green Bay.

weekend recap

I obviously stopped in Milwaukee at Trader Joe’s like I always do for some goodies.

Weekend Recap

I mostly just go for the flowers.

The rest of the night I spent getting some work done, unpacking, going to Chili’s and eating my body weight in chips and salsa …

Saturday ended up being a SUPER lazy day. I did go to the gym to do some lower body because I wasn’t able to go on Friday (my whole week got screwed up) so I did that.

Weekend Recap

And then I got s’mores custard …

Weekend Recap

And the “I blame you for this” is to Ben because he’s constantly putting up ice cream on his snap story and I forgot to save the pic before I sent it to him with the caption. But it was good! And then the rest of the night I laid on the couch and didn’t do anything.

Sunday started out kind of late, but I headed in to the gym to get in my Monday’s upper body workout because I knew the gym would be closed for Labor Day.

Weekend Recap

I really hope my next program has a harder upper body split in it because I just don’t feel like I’m getting a ton from this, mostly due to my injuries.

And then I had 40-minutes of steady state cardio, so I took a long walk.

Weekend Recap

The rest of the day was really fun. I actually met up with my friend Kelly (@dimplesandeadlifts on Instagram!) at Starbucks to get some work done. Well, we didn’t really get anything done but we had TONS of chatting time and were at SB for almost four hours! We then headed over to Vintage Cantina for more tacos (it was a taco weekend for me, apparently) and then home for the night.

And, well, because I slacked off all weekend, Monday ended up being pretty stressful for me. It’s still taking me quite a while to write these social media posts for my new clients, so between 12-7 p.m, I was working on that.

Weekend Recap

I did take a short break to watch my coach do a live stream on standards, though!

Weekend Recap

And then I came home, continued to work and then watched some YouTube, until about 9 p.m. when my stomach started going wild and I was up almost all night. So now I’m home today. I am finally starting to eat and I’m starving, but I’m trying to slow it down. So that was my weekend! Linking up with Tutu Tuesday!

How was your Labor Day weekend?

Screenshot it! #3

This is seriously a post I’ll be able to fill in forever. I always have so many screen shots! And, as you’ll see below, basically my mind has been focused on two things this week: 1) I’m hungry and 2) my brain is all over the place. πŸ™‚ Hope some of these make you laugh!

Decor I love
