Weekend Update: I Watch a Lot of Sports

 (Linking up with Leeann, Dana, and Sami!)

This weekend was pretty intense.

And by intense I mean that I watched a LOT of sports.

We watched the Steelers lose on Thursday amid incredibly exciting Nats and Tigers victories.

I still don't want to talk about the Nats loss on Friday night. I've never been that upset about a game.

Very few hours later we watched MSU lose.

Needless to say, after watching two frustrating losses so close to each other it was time for a break from sports for a little bit. 

So we went to Nordstrom (more on that when my beautiful Frye boots arrive!!) and afterward to see Argo, which was an incredible and suspenseful movie. I am not exaggerating: I was on the edge of my seat the entire time! Go see it!!
Then we caught up on more amazing college football (Go Bucks!) and watched the Tigers almost lose in another intense game.
Then on Sunday we watched the Lions win in OT. Of course it went to overtime, right? Oy.

During the Lions game we held our breath while Felix broke the freefall record...it was the craziest thing I have ever seen.

And then we watched a tense Tigers victory!
 
Quick recap: game after crazy game after crazy game, a ridiculously intense movie, and a dude jumping from about 24 miles up in the air. Phew.
 
Thankfully the rest of Sunday we relaxed, went to Mass, I gave myself a mani/pedi, and wore sweatpants. Yay for low-key and cheap weekends!
 
 
I got the polish in my September Birchbox, so I thought I should give it a whirl. I love the shiny fall color and the polish seems really durable. I didn't think I would like it since it's not Essie or OPI, but this Color Club "Status Update" color is becoming a new favorite shade!
(P.S. I highly recommend subscribing to Birchbox. It's fun to get beauty samples every month!)
Even though we saw some of our teams lose the past couple of days, it was an awesome weekend overall. I'm very grateful we had the time to relax and watch so many games together!
How were your weekends? Any intense games? Did you watch Felix fall?

Gotta admit, not only did I not watch Felix, but I didn't even know what was going on until I saw everyone tweeting about it. Actually . . . I still don't quite know what happened. Everyone was talking about a "space jump," but that's all I got . . . so I'll be investigating today. :)

Pretty nails!
