Weekend Recap: Don't Make Me Talk to You

Welp, here we are again peeps. Monday is upon us and time for yet another weekend recap. I didn't do much this weekend because I was in one of those moods where I didn't want to talk to anyone. Not because I was mad or annoyed or anything, I just literally didn't want to speak to anyone. I didn't want to have to be "on." I was "on" in a big way all week starting a new job and trying to make good first impressions and by the time Friday afternoon hit I was over it. I just wanted to be at home, sit quietly by myself with my thoughts, my pizza, my wine, and the Suns game and not have to say a word to anyone. Including Nate. He's not much of a talker anyway so it works out. There were things I could've done, maybe should've done this weekend but I just flat out didn't want to. Nothing personal, nothing's wrong, I really just wanted to turn off this weekend. ...See what I did there? Turn up? Turn off? I probably don't listen to enough rap music to make that joke, but whatever.

Saturday morning I slept until past 11am (it's fine, judge me), made myself breakfast, caught up on some Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, then got an invite from my mom who was at The Great American Barbeque and Beer festival downtown with my dad. I thought to myself why the heck not? You're probably like, "I thought you didn't want to talk to anyone all weekend, now you're going to a festival?" I can assure you I didn't talk to a single stranger (actually that's a lie, I had to say "I'll have the pork please" to the gentleman working the food truck), and my parents and I can sit comfortably in the cool grass, eating our BBQ sliders and no one's obligated to make conversation. No one's obligated to be "on."

Saturday night I had all to myself since Nate was gone for the weekend. I've been trying to make an effort to enjoy the amazing weather here in AZ before it gets too hot, so I decided to shake things up a little bit and took my blog reading outdoors to my patio.
Yes, that computer you're seeing is a 2007 Macbook with dirty keys and dirty palm prints on it. I'm terrible at both cleaning my technology and updating it. It's fine.
I was hundreds of unread posts deep after being absent most of the week, so I think I'm finally all caught up with your lives. Also, if you had like, a barrage of comments from me in your inbox all at once...that's why. I can't guarantee it won't happen again this week. 

After the sun went down I went back inside to catch up on some Real Housewives of Atlanta, then watched my first regular season major league baseball game, cause guess what?!
The Diamondbacks have been in Australia this week for the opening series of Major League Baseball. I won't talk about the outcome cause there's some serious mud slinging going on in my family between Diamondbacks and Dodgers fans and quite frankly, I'm a sore loser and don't really wanna hear about it. Also, I haven't really stepped up my s**t talking game yet so there's that too. What I will talk about however, are a few fun factoids I learned about Australia throughout the broadcasts: 
1.) Koala bears sleep 18-20 hours a day ...I must've been a Koala bear in my previous life.
2.) Cricket is a sport, not an insect. In this context anyway.
3.) The average age of the Australian population is 37. ...Social Security probably isn't high on their list of political priorities eh...mate? Wait, do they even have Social Security in Australia? 

After the baseball game...actually I take it back, it was probably more like the 7th inning (yes, it was that bad), I probably made the biggest mistake of my entire weekend. I subscribed to Netflix. And then I proceeded to binge-watch New Girl until 4:30 in the morning. 4:30 in the morning! 
I think this is why I never tried drugs in my life. Cause if I start, I just don't know how to stop. I've completed the entire first season of New Girl and the first 1/3rd of the second season all within a 15 hour span. That's probably not healthy.  

With Monday upon us I'm definitely gonna have to flip the switch and turn back "on" again, but I sure did enjoy a weekend to myself not talking to anyone. No offense or anything of course...

  1. I want a weekend like yours!!! Enjoy your 2nd week of new work!

  2. i love your 2007 macbook. i have the EXACT same one - mine is almost dead so i'm hoping to use tax $$ to get a new one. woot woot! ;)
    and girl that BBQ...i am drooling!

  3. So I'm not the biggest fan of BBQ, but that looks pretty stinking good!! I have to be in the right mood for it I guess, and that picture is doing the trick, haha.

  4. I never know about these festivals, dang it! I wanted to go to the Salsa Festival so bad and totally just missed it lol. I still have yet to get netflix because i know my time will never be spent wisely.

  5. You're just now getting Netflix??? WELCOME TO THE WORLD, MY FRIEND ;)
    And New Girl is the bomb. I could easily stay up watching that show, or Scandal. I'm not mad about it.

  6. Your Netflix binge made me LOL. It's too bad you couldn't come to the AZ Blogger Meetup in Mesa on Saturday. We had fun!

  7. Yay for baseball! I actually didn’t watch the Opening Series, but because I spent time with a Dodgers fan this weekend…I definitely heard about it. Sounds like a good weekend overall, I totally understand about not wanting to be “on” sometimes. I really need to watch New Girl. I’ve heard so much about it and really feel like I would love it, I just haven’t found time to binge watch. That needs to step up in my priority list.

  8. Those sliders look amazing!!! I am so ready for Summer, BBQ's and sunshine!!!!

  9. Yum bbq and beer festival?So fun!! We have grillfest here and I cannot wait!!

  10. Those BBQ sliders look delicious! Netflix never lets me down! I was really excited when they added New Girl because I hadn't watch it but had always wanted to.

  11. Minus the sports that sounds like a perfect weekend to me! ;-)

  12. New Girl is the greatest show on Earth. My boyfriend and I have photos of Schmidt quotes up in our house. Not ashamed.

  13. I just thought you should know that I keep coming back to your blog for a new post.

  14. i love baseball and that bbq looks so good!! cant wait to read about this new job!!!!!!!!
