Welcome back to another Monday. We all dread Mondays but I saw something cool this morning on someone’s Instagram story that I really liked. It made me want to start my Monday over. It said:
Do sharks complain about Monday?
No. They’re up early, biting stuff, chasing shit, being scary – reminding everyone they’re a f****** shark.
I don’t have many pictures of this weekend but it was still a good one. On Friday night, Adam and I went to Market Street Grill with his mom for dinner and then went back to her house to play Liverpool. I like card games like that a lot.
Saturday morning, I spent a lot of time out in the yard mowing it and pulling the weeds I had gotten behind on. That clover stuff is taking over our grass! I sprayed something for it a few weeks ago but it is so much worse now! Adam bought something new to try but we’ll see what it does. Anyone have any suggestions for it??
That night, Adam and I went and saw Crazy Rich Asians and I thought it was so good! I need to read the book now. I had heard it was good but the main reason we went and saw it was because Michelle saw it the night before and told me the next morning that I needed to go see it.
Sunday, I decided to tackle what I like to call our “Junk Room.” It’s that empty room where things go when we have no good spot to put them and I would do my ironing in there too. We bought a new mattress for our basement bedroom so we decided to put the old one in this room and make it a guest room. Below is the before!
I feel like I should have taken more pictures because this doesn’t do it justice and show all of the mess.

I organized the ironing stuff in the closet and the rest of the random things in there and was able to shut the doors so it looks cleaner. Adam unpacked his last two boxes from the move and put everything in his gun cabinet. I’m not sure where that will end up eventually, especially with kids. Now I just need to go find a cute quilt or duvet for the bed and then I will pick sheets out to match. Eventually, we’ll repaint this room and decide if it’s will be a nursery or not but for now, this works great. Hope you like your bedroom, Michelle!
That night, we went up the canyon in Bountiful to Mueller Park and had dinner and a fire. The kids had fun playing down in the creek. I forget how much the temperature changes up there so I froze but I will remember better for next year. It was nice to go up there to relax and enjoy the scenery.
Like Steph said, Friday night, some friends and I went and saw Crazy Rich Asians. It was beautiful. I haven’t cried in a movie in a while but that one made me tear up. I loved it so much! I’m so glad Steph went and saw it too.
On Saturday, my family and I ate breakfast, which was nice because we rarely, if ever, get a chance to do that on Saturdays. That night, I hung out with Cody and some of our friends in Herriman and it was so much fun. You are always laughing with these guys.

Sunday was a pretty chill day, I spent the day with my family and we watched Escaping Polygamy which if you haven’t seen, you should. It’s about the Kingston clan in Utah, a prominent polygamous group who marry young girls to their own family members to “preserve the bloodline”. All of it is so sick but we’ve been a little addicted to the show. We watched an episode Sunday and it sparked this huge conversation between the 4 of us. By the time we realized, it had been like 2 or 3 hours of straight conversation but it was a lot of fun.
Last night, I went over to Cody’s to hang out. We watched Little Giants, one of my favorite movies from when I was younger. He fried up some potstickers from Costco that were freaking delicious and also decided to put a raw egg in his ramen that he was going to cook in the microwave and that was a bad idea because it exploded. It was pretty funny.
All in all, it was a pretty fun weekend.
What did you do this weekend?
