MIMM : Busy Weekend Highlights

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a great weekend and got to enjoy the perfect weather!  In Pittsburgh we got a little preview of fall weather in the morning, which made my runs really enjoyable.  Here is a look at the highlights of my weekend!

A few weeks ago, I won an Instagram giveaway hosted by Gina, Vanessa and a few other ladies for a Target giftcard!  I picked up a few essentials as well as a some fun things, as you can see below!
target mossimo plaid shirt
Sun Bum SPF 50 Sunscreen
This is my first time trying this brand, but I love it!  Smells really good and has great protection.

John Frieda 7 Day Volume
I tried this in-shower treatment before and loved how thick it made my hair feel.  Highly recommend (plus it's cheap!)

L'Oreal Infallible Shadow in Eternal Sunshine
My absolute favorite single eyeshadow formula.  This is really smooth and stays put all day.  I love this golden color for summer and fall!

Scotch Washi Tape and Neenah Cardstock
Washi tape is so fun for decorating my planner, and the cardstock will be great for my scrapbook!

Wilton Silicone Baking Mat
I've always wanted to try a silicone mat for baking cookies and macarons, so I picked this cute one up!

Hanes V-Neck T shirts
My favorite plain white tee.  Super soft and comfortable!

Mossimo Plaid Shirt
I love plaid shirts for fall, and this one is so soft!  Can't wait to wear it!

Bib Necklace
I really liked how this necklace looked, and I couldn't pass it up when I saw it was on clearance.


glyder adopt tank top
I also got this Glyder tank in the mail that I saw on Suzanne's blog!  I love the image on the front, and was pleasantly surprised how soft and comfortable it is.  It also got delivered really quickly, which was a nice bonus.  I wore it on my long run at North Park and highly recommend checking out Glyder's shirts!


Speaking of North Park, it was absolutely gorgeous out.  There were a ton of people out kayaking, and I really wanted to join them! How perfect does that water look?


Most of my weekend was spent at my parents' house helping them paint their living room.  I mentioned before that they're doing some renovations.  I love to paint, so this was my favorite week of work so far!  There's still a lot to do, but the room's looking beautiful so far.


Selma came along to "help", but mostly napped out in the sun.  She was a very happy dog!


I ended the weekend by watching the movie McFarland, USA at Schenley Park!  During the summer, a few different parks in the city host movie nights (sometimes with a concert beforehand), and I finally made it to one.  The movie was absolutely amazing, and the weather couldn't be more perfect.  Best way to end the weekend!

What did you do this weekend?
Do you have anything exciting happening this week? 
Have you seen McFarland?  What did you think?

  1. What a fun and busy weekend! Your parents are so lucky to have you help paint - I would've avoided that :) I'm not the best at "home renovations" so I don't know if they even would have asked haha. I loved McFarland - it made me want to go run some hill repeats... very cool that you were able to watch it outside. I wish we had something like that around here! Hope you have a fabulous Monday!

    1. I actually love to paint! All of the parts of their renovations I've helped with have been lots of fun for me, so I don't mind at all. Plus, they usually take us out for a dinner to thank us for helping. Free food for doing stuff I like? Not too bad :)

  3. Your weekends make me feel so lazy! On Saturday I had a True Blood marathon with while snuggling my kitty and on Sunday I managed to take two naps. Throw in some running and grocery shopping and that pretty much sums it up.

    I really like that rescue tank! Super cute!

    1. Trust me, I have moments like that too (especially in the winter). I do much better when I have lots of things to keep me busy..I've always been happier when I keep busy so this was an ideal weekend for me. Nothing wrong with a True Blood marathon :)
