In vs. Out

For a week that didn't have much going on (and wasn't a four day week) it went by relatively fast. I feel like I say that all the time, but after getting over Mondays the rest of the week seems to go by in a flash. I'm not complaining though. Here's what's in and out this week!


My birthday weekend (my birthday is Sunday) P.S. I'm going to see the Minion movie tonight and I may be more excited to order a glass of wine and watch a cartoon than anything else #imachild

Shark Week

When people tell me they are trying my no-bake cheesecake recipe (all of the heart eye emojis)

Country Music

Losing Weight (I'm ONE pound away from winning the bet I have going with Joshua)


Packing. That is all. I've come to the point where I don't even know where to start and there's just stuff EVERYWHERE!

Cheers to the weekend!


  1. Packing is the worst. I always get so stressed about it. Happy Birthday! Enjoy the Minions. I'm off to check out this no-bake cheesecake of yours... =)

  2. Happy almost birthday girl!! Congrats on being close to your bet as well! I think the minion movie will be cute but I think I'm going to wait until it hits redbox or Netflix. Unless people say it's so so good then I'll just have to see it.

  3. Cheers to the weekend darling! Have a great birthday weekend and go you for being that close to your bet with Joshua. You got this!!

  4. Happy almost birthday, girl! Congrats on losing weight as well. You're almost there! Let me know how Minions is, too!

  5. I'm right there with you on the packing! Our apartment looks like a tornado went through. How do we have so much stuff?!

  6. You have some great "IN's!!!! Love it!

  7. I missed lots of shark week. ;( & packing does suck!

  8. I love shark week. Happy Early Birthday and I completely forgot about the Minion movie until you said it. I am going to catch that! I hear you about packing. I am always traveling and packing is something I feel like it takes almost the whole day out of me - especially when you are a blogger hehe

  13. Yes!! It's almost your birthday! Enjoy the minion movie, my nephews love them so much! I'll definitely be participating in shark week! I haven't been in a house with a television for so long, so this is the first year I'll be able to watch shark week live!

  14. Hi, country music is my fave! Hope that you LOVE the Minion movie! I am really excited to see it; too bad we don't have one of the fancy theaters that serves wine!

    Happy early birthday, sweet girl! I hope it's the best one yet! Xo

  15. I'm like the only person in America not on the Minion bandwagon. I think they're adorable I just haven't seen the movies yet. I think this calls for a Minion binge session this weekend.

  16. Have a great weekend! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

  17. I'm excited to take my son to the Minions movie too. Great job with the weight loss! Have a great weekend!

  18. I can't wait to go see the Minions movie!! I absolutely hate packing! When I pack, I tend to overpack. Hope you enjoy your birthday weekend!!!

  19. Have the best birthday weekend Birthday Princess! Have a great time at the Minion movie! Oh and congrats on making so much progress towards your goal weight (:

  20. Happy Birthday- have a wonderful weekend! P.S. now I want cheesecake

  26. Happy Birthday! :) I love reading In & Out lists, and it's great to see the good outweigh the not so good! I hate packing too, I really just throw everything into my suitcase and pray for the best lol.
