First things first…I don’t know why but the Friday night bombings in Paris really got to me. I haven’t been able to quit thinking and praying about the whole situation and all of the people involved. There was absolutely no reason for all of that loss and destruction, no reason at all. So please, #PrayForParis
Now onto the good news from this past weekend!! I have to admit that after a couple of really bad losses I haven’t been watching much Razorback football this season. However this past weekend we played our biggest rival, LSU (Louisiana State University) for The Boot and at Death Valley (Tiger Stadium) and the Razorbacks pulled out a big ole W!! And they didn’t just win, they stomped LSU into the ground. Their fans started leaving at half time and you better bet we brought that boot back to Arkansas with us!! #WPS
Another huge win this past weekend came from the UFC 193 fight . Now before I go any further, I will say that I am not a UFC fan, in fact watching fights makes me sick to my stomach. When I got to work Sunday everyone was talking about this cray fight and it sparked my interest so I watched it. It wasn’t too bloody or bad but Ronda Rousey, the champ, got knocked out. I am all about cheering for the underdog and especially after watching the weigh in and Rousey totally went off on Holly Holm. I am glad Holm took her down and is the new champ. I amy even watch the next fight between the two, because you know there will be another!! Congrats #HollyHolm on your huge WIN!!!
This weekend was also one of my very best friend’s birthday!! Happy Birthday to my road trip bestie, my sorority sister, and the person who was by my side through my crazy college days and beyond!! I am so glad we are best friends even if we live so far away from each other!! #HappyBirthdayLibby
Last night I posted this pic on Instagram and I am super pumped about it. Yes, it is a big pile of sautéed veggies and that’s kind of weird but now I have plenty to work with this week and I can’t wait to share some yummy recipes with you soon!! YUM!!
So that was my weekend in a nutshell…#PrayForParis #WPS #RouseyVsHolm #HappyBirthdayLibby and veggies and recipes!!
How was your weekend??
Robin (Masshole Mommy) says
I am just sick over what happened in Paris. I don’t understand why terrorists can’t just go be miserable in a cave somewhere and leave everyone alone.
I am still riding a high from that AR vs. LSU game! Woot, we did indeed keep the boot!
Sounds like a perfect weekend with your friend. Mine lives out of state so when we do get together we try to celebrate everything all at once. Paris bombs broke my heart and I hope that they can start to heal and get back on their feet quickly.
The Paris bombings were so devastating. What a terrible thing to happen. And the Rousey/Holm fight was great and surprising at the same time!
Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle says
It’s sickening what people will do to one another. I can’t believe that anyone thinks anything can be accomplished by slaughtering innocent people.
Megan Elford says
The Paris ordeal really got to me too, and to alot of my friends. I wish craziness like that was non-existent. I know it’s not going to happen, but a girl can dream!
Liz Mays says
That must have been an incredible fight. Happy Birthday Libby! I’m glad you guys are still so close and got to spend some time together!
Tatanisha Pitts-Worthey says
I’m so saddened with this news, very devastating. I’m praying not just for Paris but for the World.
Very sad week. I just don’t understand why is so hard to love and respect others. Stop hurting
Tracy @ Ascending Butterfly says
You had a very ‘hashtag’ weekend! LOL
I didn’t watch the fight at all, but was happy to hear about the outcome. :)
Miles L. says
Yes, we all need to pray for Paris and for the rest of the world. This place is not getting any safer with terrorists roaming around. I also watched the UFC fight and heard many are upset with the result.
Wood Arts Universe says
Many things have been happening over the past days. What happened to Paris is so sad, we didn’t expect that to happen. Let us continue to pray for Paris and the victims.
alexandria waning says
Happy Birthday to your friend! The Paris attacks were/are very devastating so thanks for taking a moment to address that. That’s very sweet of you.
It’s heartbreaking what these terrorist did to Paris last Saturday. I pray for the victims and their families.
Still not a Holly Holm fan…I’m definitely behind Ronda all the way. She’ll come back and end up on top I’m sure of it and I can’t wait for the re-match!
tiaras & Tantrums says
Glad to hear you had a fun and busy weekend. We were super busy this past weekend too! I think I am still recvoering
That sauteed veggies is making me hungry. I love sauteed veggies. And yup, totally agree with you about the bombing in Paris – there was no reason for it at all. Sad.
I hear ya on the Paris thing, although it is heavy on my mind I also worry about the future attacks that are planned for our country as well. This is a scary time in the world and unfortunately I have a feeling it’s going to get worse before it gets better.
Bonnie @wemake7 says
My weekend was a little crazy but that’s the norm for here lol. Happy belated birthday to your friend. =)
Chubskulit Rose says
It was really a Friday the 13th for Paris and for the world as this radicals continue to spread their evilness. We are so happy for Holly Holm as well. We are not fan of Ronda Rousey lol.
Ann BAcciaglia says
The events have broken my heart. Those poor families that are suffering.
Crystal Lopez says
It was definitely a profound weekend. The attacks in Paris were a topic of conversation among my kids and I and are still ongoing. Truly a tragic event.
Up Run for Life says
I am sad for Paris as well. I pray for all the families affected.
It sounds like you had a wonderful weekend. I can’t wait to see your new recipes too.
I don’t watch UFC either, but this particular fight sparked my interest, too. I feel the same way about underdogs as well. Congrats to Holly Holm!
Rebecca Swenor says
It truly is a shame to what happened in Paris of all place. We all need to stand up these terrorist. Anyway I pray for all the people and their families. My heart goes out to them all. It sounds like you had a wonderful weekend.
Those are yummy looking veggies. And happy birthday to your bestie!
Despite a heavy start to the weekend, it sounds like ultimately you had a great time!
It was such a busy weekend! Still horrified with what happened in Paris :(
Looks like a busy weekend. This weekend is filled with taking care of a sick baby for me.
