Weekend Update Blog Hop

Hi Friends! Guess what! I have some new followers! When I saw my GFC count this was my reaction

And then I did my happy dance
I love gifs. They make my day. 

Now onto my weekend.... I'm linking up with the Weekend Blog Hop to give you a little recap :)

I wish I could say I am the most exciting person you'll ever meet... Sorry I can't. I'm the most boring normal person you'll ever meet, but I did expand my horizon's this weekend!

I have always wanted to go to Trader Joes but there wasn't one anywhere near me in Michigan. Now there is one 7 minutes away from me!

It was magnificent. Plus I left under my budget and only had to carry 3 bags up!

As I was driving back towards the highway I saw a sign. It said Cafe Rio. Now this may not seem like a big deal but when you read Janae's posts about Cafe Rio's amazing salads and lemonades every week, you make a quick u-turn and try not to hyperventilate from excitement. 
I had the grilled chicken salad and strawberry lemonade. Now I know why she goes on and on about it. Amazing :)

I also got to skype with this cutie Thursday AND Sunday since it was her birthday weekend!! I can't believe she's 9 now!! 

Now I realize I didn't blog at all last week.
I'll try to do better this week but this whole teaching 40+ hours a week is really kicking my butt... so there may be a delay till I get used to my new schedule.

Happy Monday :)
