Bobby and I had plans to go camping this weekend, since it was our only free weekend in October, but the weather didn’t look promising so we decided to stay home.
After work Friday, we ventured to Apex Nature Park for some disc golf. Bobby started playing disc golf about 2 years ago with a friend in VA and hasn’t stopped. When we moved to Raleigh, we found out that there’s a huge disc golf community! I enjoy casually throwing a frisbee on the beach, but the thought of making frisbee a competitive game wasn’t enticing. A few weeks ago, I decided to give it a shot and actually enjoyed it!
We didn’t have much daylight, so we only got about 7 holes before we had to leave. And, of course, Mowgli loves chasing the discs in the woods.
Every weekend, Bobby and I like to walk up to Starbucks. We’ve been fortunate to live within a mile from a Starbucks, so we harness the dog and take him with us. Mowgli loves getting a Puppacino (just whipped cream in a cup)! He’s spoiled rotten and gets mad if we ever go to Starbucks without him.
Since we didn’t have any concrete plans, I decided to take some time to catch up on paperwork (yuck) and chores. While I hate doing paperwork, I actually love cleaning. Anyone else as weird as me?
I was also able to update our gallery wall with some wedding and honeymoon photos — only took a year!
Since we’ve been busy most weekends, I haven’t really had a chance to go grocery shopping….which means we’ve been eating out a lot. I did some meal planning and pulled together a pretty hefty grocery list.
I use the “All Out Of” grocery list by Knock Knock. I LOVE this thing! You can buy it here. I keep it on the fridge so I can add things as I run out, or use it to check my inventory of food items or household products. I also love Knock Knock’s Pack This checklist.
Oh! And I found this AWESOME coffee creamer! I try to eliminate dairy from my diet, but flavored creamers are hard to find in a non-dairy alternative. I found a Caramel Almond Milk creamer by Silk. It’s SO good! Even Bobby liked it!
Saturday night we were invited to have dinner at Bobby’s work friend’s house. He and his fiancé are huge Alabama football fans, so we suited up for an epic game vs. Texas A&M. I’m glad I’ve been keeping up with NCAA this season…I was able to hold a decent conversation about stats and players.
Sunday was pretty low key. I started to make dinner and realized I never got out of my PJs! I spent most of my day catching up with family. Spent an hour and a half on the phone with my mom, 20 mins on the phone with my grandma, and about 30 mins texting with my step-mother-in-law. Sometimes you just need to check-in and chat.
Oh! I almost forgot! This weekend was the REI friends and family sale. Luckily, I snagged one of those discounts from Kate while I was in Colorado last weekend. Bobby and I had a gift card leftover from the wedding, plus I had my dividend to spend. We got two new headlamps, a buff for me, a Big Agnus Sleeping Pad, and the Big Agnus Pumphouse…for only $0.22 of our own money! The shipment is suppose to deliver on Friday, so I’ll take some photos and post a review next weekend.
That’s all for now! Hope everyone had a great weekend. Looking forward to a productive and peaceful week.
