Weekly Meal Plan

This weekend has been one of the best in a long time minus feeling a little sick. It was the first weekend after a full week of school and my birthday! All I wanted to do was relax and spend time with my husband & that is exactly what we did. Although I have a long birthday wish list, I am still trying to make up my mind about what I want. Yesterday, Chris smoked a brisket for a little over 10 hours and I think it was the best one he had ever made!! I was able to sleep in a little bit today (after feeding the dog, letting her play, and letting her go out 7 times). We have plans every weekend from now until the end of football/hunting season. Today was the second time this weekend that Chris woke up to go hunting. I'm sure he will be excited to show me his loot from the day when he gets home!

Meals this week are going to be very simple. We are having left overs and take out a couple night because the days will be so crazy!

 Chris smoked a brisket and we had beans, macaroni, & potato salad with it! YUM!!

Leftover brisket

Oven Roasted Sausage, Potatoes, and Peppers

Texas Roadhouse

We will be leaving right after work on Friday so we have to pack and get everything together on Thursday. Dinner will most likely be something Pei Wei or Chipotle which of course I don't mind!

Friday- Saturday- 
We will be in College Station for the first home football game. We have season tickets and a huge tailgate (that grows every year)! I can't wait for the first game and it will be even more exciting with College Game Day there!!

Sunday Social

First off, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!! I had all intentions of posting my birthday wish list last week but school got in the way. Last week was a crazy week! I was so busy during the day and when I came home all I wanted to do was relax on the couch. 

Today, I am linking up with Neely for the 13th week of Sunday Social. Today's topic is End of Summer Wrap Up!

1) What was your favorite trip/vacation/activity this summer? 
Hmm, so much went on this summer that it is hard to just pick one but I definitely have to go with one of my best friends weddings! We celebrated her bachelorette party in New Orleans and then a few weeks later her and her husband were married in Irving!

2) Favorite outfit look of the summer/clothing item?
I spent a lot of my summer in a bathing suit! Definitely my favorite outfit for summer!

3) What is one thing you wish you had gotten to do this summer? 
Relax?? I am a school teacher and did a lot of stuff school related throughout the summer. I have a really hard time turning off my brain during the summer. I taught summer school the first half, taught 3-4 inservice sessions offered through the district and then helped interview for a few different positions towards the end of the summer. I enjoyed most of it but wished I had taken time to sit at home and do nothing!!

4) Favorite Song of the Summer?
I'm sure this will get a good laugh out of people and I didn't just sit around and listen to this song, but it had a good beat and reminds me of my childhood...

5) Favorite movie/tv show of the summer:
Hands down, The Bachelorette! I absolutely love and am obsessed with this show! Also love Emily so it was that much better!

I can't believe summer is over... It is bittersweet! I love having time off but have to keep myself busy!

Enjoy the rest of your long weekend!
