Weekend Recap + A Blush Blonde Giveaway

Good morning, loves! My blog post is taking a bit longer than normal today – I hurt my wrist working out. Imagine that. Maybe if someone would learn to take a rest day … So now an old cheerleading injury is acting up and I can barely move my hand. At least it’s my left hand?? Moving on, let’s talk about the weekend (and a giveway at the end!) Linking up with Katie, per usual!

Friday was an insane morning, starting out SO early but thankfully my half day went quickly. I went home, ate some food and then headed back into the gym around 5 p.m.

Weekend Recap

After my workout, I headed over to TJ Maxx to shop around for a little bit. I ended up trying on 11 things and coming home with only two. Thanks to those of you on SnapChat for helping me with the dress decision.

Weekend Recap

Ya’ll said yes, which is good because I bought it before anyone told me yes. ūüėČ I just didn’t show you the back …

Weekend Recap

Wooo, hey #booty. I don’t usually wear things this tight, so I’m still a little weary of it, but I’m sure I’ll wear it in public … soon. haha!

Oh, and I got these pants. I’ve been looking for black NON-see through pants for awhile so I’m glad I found these, plus they were like $15.

Weekend Recap

Saturday was a pretty boring day. I had stayed up pretty late on Friday watching Gossip Girl (whoopsie) and slept in a bit. Once up, I ate and watched some more Gossip Girl before heading to the gym around 1 p.m. (the picture with my new pants was from my workout on Saturday). I did a hard glutes and hamstrings workout and then headed back home to shower and mess around for a little while. Hang out with this guy …

Weekend Recap

The rest of the night was pretty boring and super sticky/hot (my AC never reaches my room) so it took awhile for me to fall asleep. Once I did, it was only a matter of a couple of hours before tornado warnings were going off on my phone and the tornado sirens were going off outside.


I don’t know if you know this, but tornadoes are one of my biggest fears. I’ve always been terrified of them. Storms, don’t care. But as soon as you say the “t” word, my anxiety is through the roof. I woke up my sister and watched the news. Thankfully nothing touched down. Here’s a question, though. I live on the second story of a two-story apartment complex that has absolutely no basement. Where do you go for a tornado??

After that stress, it took me a bit to fall back asleep (say, 5 a.m.) so I slept until almost 11 on Sunday. I woke up, cleaned up around the apartment, did some laundry and headed to the gym again around 1 p.m. I noticed my left wrist was a little cranky, but I ignored it. Mistake.

After my workout, I headed home to shower and get ready to go see Finding Dory with my sister. Super cute!

Weekend Recap

And then we went to Target for some groceries, Noodles & Company for dinner and then back home for the rest of the night. I facetimed a bit and then tried to go to sleep before midnight. So waking up today at 5 was a chore.

Weekend Recap

I did manage to get myself to the gym (probably because the scale wasn’t giving me a very awesome number) and did a chest/back workout. It was good … so good that I couldn’t even push the doors open when leaving the gym because my wrist hurts so bad. GRRRRR.

Weekend Recap

And now I’m drinking a gigantic Venti Cold Brew coffee from Starbs and trying not to fall asleep. Oh, Monday. I can’t wait until I have more control over you.

    I was in Phoenix spending time with family after a couple days in my office. I loved eating at some of my favorite places in my old neighborhood while I was there. And I got in a few workouts, so that’s a win!

  2. Liz says:

    That sucks about your wrist! I hate injuries from working out, obviously! But I always feel like they come at the worst times- like when I’m finally REALLY into working out and then it breaks my habit. I love TJ Maxx and Marshall’s! I bought workout clothes there when I was pregnant cause they were so much cheaper! I just realized I typed this out yesterday and never closed it. I have no idea where I was going with the rest of this comment, haha.

      YES, exactly! I went and did a bunch of leg machine work today, but I’m irritated haha. And HAHAHAHA about your “I have no idea where I was going with the rest of this comment” – girl sometimes I think we’re the same person. ūüėČ I do that all the time!

  3. Megan says:

    That sucks about your wrist! I always seem to have really weird injuries or random pain that goes away after a day or two so hopefully yours does the same! You always find the cutest stuff at TJ Maxx! I think ours just might always be so picked over so I can never find anything good there. I love that dress too!

    • Jessie says:

      I’ve been hoping that’d happen, too! I will say this morning it was a LOT better, but now it’s sore again (probably from moving around and typing and stuff).
