Mother’s Day Weekend Shenanigans

Woah. This past weekend was full of shenanigans. It’s mother’s day weekend and all and I spent the entire weekend with the family.

Let’s start with Saturday. A local community nearby hosts an annual garage sale. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t the best, but my mom and I managed to hit up some garage sales. I actually found a few items. Brace for it….


A mini rice cooker and a potato peeler. Score.

Following our epic garage sale searches, we went to an antique place in downtown Issaquah. Sadly we found fun items, but the prices were “too big.” I remembered that back in the day, we’d go to Snohomish to visit the antique shops. I kept this in my radar….Post antique shopping was cutting down a tree and random errands then dinner and a movie.

We watched Labor Day. Overall, the movie was okay. It was slow in the beginning and that is hard for me. If it doesn’t catch me in the beginning you can find me on my phone or something. lol. We watched the entire movie though.

Sunday started off with a quick 4.5 mile run….sadly it didn’t end well. I swear that I’ve actually injured something in my hip and knee. I was in serious pain by the time I got home. I had the pleasure of limping all day on Sunday. Call me the gimp. I am actually really mad about it.

Post run, we went to Soaring Eagle to walk Kasa.


Just way too excited. She may have pee’d herself.

Following the walk, it was time to change the plans and head to Snohomish to go antiquing.

It was a beautiful day for a drive to Snohomish and I was determined to find some new items to the new place.


But first, a coffee.

Mother’s Day cheers.



Do you recognize? Fred Flintstones “new” vehicle.


Joe and I just Pinterest-ing.


Got the window frame on the mantel. Still alot to be done. I’ll be spending alot of time of pinterest looking for ideas.

Overall, I had a great weekend minus the fact that my hip/groin/knee hurts alot when I run. I think that this year will not be a running year. Perhaps a biking year. I cannot believe that I am saying this. Maybe I need a doc’s opinion.

Anywho, this weekend was fabulous. On another note, I’ll be viewing a trial all week so there is a good chance that I’ll be MIA. I am warning you now.

That being said, have a great week!

What did you do for mother’s day weekend?

Do you like antique shopping?

XO, Tara



  1. Every time you write about your hip/knee/etc I wince, knowing that’s where I had pain and I’ve got a nasty stress fracture. Hind-sight is always 20/20 but I wish I’d gone to the doc sooner than I had because it might not have been quite so bad. Good luck!

  2. LOVE LOVE LOVE the window frame SO much!! I cannot wait to get a place of my own to decorate like that. LOOVEEEE!! What a run weekend, I love your out and about attire, that’s exactly what mine looks like too.
