Weekend Recap: A loss & two wins

Good morning, friends! I can’t believe it’s Monday already. How is that fair?

After my post on Friday, the rest of the day at work went pretty slowly. No one was here and I was waiting for client feedback, so it was a long afternoon. I got to Ben’s around 6:15 and immediately died on the couch. Okay, over dramatic … but I laid there until I had no other choice than to get up.

Thankfully (??) Ben had a hockey game at 10:20 p.m. BACK out in the suburbs, but I love hockey so it worked out. The game was awesome, plus Ben had an assist AND the game winning goal so I mean … good Friday night.

Saturday I tried to sleep in, but it didn’t work so I got up and talked with Ben’s cousin while he was at work. After she left, I took a little cat nap on the couch before walking over to Starbucks to get a little pick-me-up. I came back to an AMAZING package …

My Ben’s Halo Top package. I like to say it’s mine because #GirlfriendPrivilege

I also got the key code (I don’t have actual keys) to my apartment, so once Ben got home later that afternoon we went and checked it out. Unfortunately, it was not done. The floors weren’t finished, paint wasn’t dry, it was still dirty … etc. I texted my landlord and she was super apologetic. She had thought the contractors would be done by Friday, but it’ll be done soon. Thankfully I wasn’t actually moving in. Either way, I think it’ll be a nice place! If it’s not, I only signed a 7-month lease, so I can survive for 7 months. Pictures next weekend when I move!

Around 7:30, Ben and I headed BACK out to the suburbs to his parents house to babysit his family’s dog. Not mad about it.


We spent the rest of the evening eating Portillos and watching Dexter. You’d know this if you followed me on Snapchat. 😉 (pst … it’s JustJessie23)

Sunday we slept in a *tiny* bit before heading off to Starbucks to get cranky-pants a coffee. Two guesses who that is. (Hint: Ben doesn’t drink caffeine so …) Ben worked for awhile before his friends showed up and we all went and got brunch, then watched the HORRIBLE PACKER GAME THAT I DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT.

Packer Game Sadness

After the game, we hung out with his family once they got home before going to his hockey game. They won again in a shoot out, so that was pretty fun!


Watching him play hockey is a double-edged sword. I lovvvvvve it and the aggressiveness of the sport, but Benjamin is “extra aggressive” we’ll say … so he seems to always be in on the action so I’m constantly thinking he’s broken. He came off the ice in one piece, though. 😉

After the game, we drove back, showered and off to bed. I woke up at 5:15 this morning and made it to the gym, which I’m pretty proud of.

Got in some lower body and stretching. I was feeling awesome until about now (it’s not even 10 a.m.) … I feel like I might pass out at my desk. Should be fun!

How was your weekend?
Any moving tips? I get super stressed when moving, so I’d love the info!

Linking up with Katie.

    Oh Halo Top! I’ve only tried one flavor and it was DELICIOUS! I can’t wait to try more. And hmmm moving tips, start packing as early as possible. Group similar items you would like together in boxes and label. AND when unpacking really take time to figure out what you want in your kitchen cabinets. I changed my mind like 10 times when we moved.

      SO GOOD. Definitely recommend the Red Velvet HT if you haven’t had that yet.And those are GREAT tips. Unfortunately I’m basically packing/loading everything Friday/Saturday and then we’re off, so I don’t have much time to prepare since I’m in Chicago and my stuff is in Wisconsin! But I like the idea with kitchen cabinets, especially because I don’t have much room!

    I’m glad you checked it out before having the car totally packed, I move things a little at a time, so go to work, drop some stuff at the new place, go to the old place, pack the car, sleep, go to work…repeat. Which then does require the 5 am workout.

      Well, it kind of just worked out since I haven’t been back to Green Bay. In fact, this weekend is going to suck. Have to pack AND move, all between Friday-Saturday. Should be interesting haha! And that’s a great idea – unfortunately I’ve only moved places that are hella far away (aka 3.5 hours this time) so I can’t do that 🙁
