Weekend Update


Happy Monday errrrrybody! Ugh Monday...it's been raining here non-stop for like 3 days now. It's grey and cloudy and I feel like I haven't seen the sun in ages. BUT like my boyfriend LB says, rain is a good thing, right? I survived the weekend - thank you for all the sweet comments, texts, FB msgs, tweets, emails - every way that you guys reached out to support me on Saturday! XOXO
 
Mostly I was incredibly unproductive this weekend - again, I'm blaming the weather. I watched Django & This is 40 on Saturday. This is 40 was HILARIOUS! I highly recommend it. I laughed my booty off. Yesterday all I wanted to do was sleep in and sleep the day away, but I got up and went to church anyhow. I don't know if you believe in "signs" from God or not, but I do. And I got several this weekend. The weather was a perfect sign of fate for me. Then yesterday morning at church we wrapped up a series on forgiveness - focusing on forgiving yourself for things in order to move forward. Phil 3:13-14 (I'm paraphrasing) Forget your past, look forward. Press on. Boom! Just like that I'm done with the past. There is nothing back there for me to hang on to. Thank you sweet baby Jesus!
 
Here's a glimpse at my incredibly boring weekend via Instagram {nikkib918} -
Drinking problem much? Nah I just love some Fireball! A little pregaming to go watch a friend's band play Friday night.

Love this!

ok ok ok we get it... April Showers...

My precious little Sweet Tilly


Starbucks was so necessary this morning....come to mama!
 
Don't forget to link up tomorrow for the final 30 Miles in 30 Days post for April!

Ok. You are the second person this weekend that mentioned This is 40. I'm definitely going to need to watch that now. I still love that canvas with the CS Lewis quote. I say we have a girls night and recreate that! What do you say? And Miss Tilly....aww she's just too precious! Hope the weather turns around soon! And that you have a great week!

Tilly is too cute!!! That pic is so adorable!! Love the CS Lewis quote!! How perfect! I saw This Is 40 on the on demand list and wondered if it was one of those movies where all of the funnies are on the preview, but clearly I need to watch it now!!

Stephanie said...

Ugh, we had a whole lot of rain this weekend, too. It's FINALLY sunny today.

Cayla Hess said...

Oh my gosh! I'm so glad you found "this is 40" to be FUNNY! Everyone I talk to about it either didn't like it, or found it just "ok." I thought it was hilarious. And will you be doing a 31 miles in 30 days for May?

Kait said...

sweet girl, you deserve all the happiness in the world! I'm always cheering for you :)

DeAnna Stephens said...

You chickies that drink whiskey. I don't know how you do it! I can't!!

Erin @ Keep Calm and Sparkle said...

Here's to new chapters!!! Love you and that Miss Tilly!!!

Pamela said...

Love that quote & the sweet puppy face :)

Fran @ Sassy Southern Bride said...

I know it is a relief to have this weekend behind you. Glad it passed and you made it! :-)
p.s. this makes me sound like a total old lady, but I am happy about the rain because of my garden.

Tori G said...

I have never had Fireball before...I have been hearing a lot about it....guess I should try it!

Melissa Smith said...

Man, I love your pup!! Also, I can't imagine a weekend with fireballs could be boring!! ;)

Melissa Smith said...

Oh and I didn't even think about this but are you doing any challenges for May?

Wine and Summer said...

Ah, Tilly is just the cutest!

Whitney Ellen said...

Mmmm, you know I love me some Fireball. Yes MA'AM!

Chelsee @ Southern Beauty Guide said...

Happy Monday!!! I swear this weather is killing me! It is so nasty here today and will be most of the week. Have a great day!

Kathryn said...

I am so over this rain. At least we're getting a break today, but there's supposed to be more this week.

Blue Dog Belle said...

OMG. I'm absolutely terrified of fireball. Ekk...

erica said...

Rachel's Country Roots said...

I gotta try that fireball!

Jordan said...

This Is 40 is fucking hilarious! Love that movie. Tilly is just so cute! Ok, question. So I'm going to link up for the final 30 Days link up for the month, but when I planned out this last week I planned to do the last few on the 30th. So I'm just going to share what I've completed and then what I plan to do that night, if that makes sense? Eeeek can't believe we're at the finish line!

Meg {henninglove} said...

i thought this is 40 was a bit depressing but there is no hope after 40. i thought the previews showed all the funny parts and that was it. but i do have to admit i feel asleep during the movie so... maybe my opinion doesn't count anymore ;-) im sending sun your way right now ok??

Young and Fabulous said...

I watched This is 40 on the plane back from London. I was literally laughing out loud the ENTIRE time. Best part....when they were eating the "cookies" and when he was taking pictures of his booty. Wanted to DIE!!!

Kelsey Bang said...

Janna Renee said...
