Favorite Song: I can not get enough of Shake it Off by Taylor Swift. I have probably listened to this song 20 times in the last two days. I don’t know why so many people have to hate on her. Perhaps I like it so much because she is sort of making fun of herself in this video and “shakes off” what other people say about her. I like to think I do the same.
Favorite New Item: A few weeks ago my mom gave me this little Alabama necklace that she saw when she was at the beach. So sweet of her to think of me while she was on vacation! I tucked it away so I wouldn’t loose it and sort of forgot about it. My little gold anchor necklace broke last week so this is the perfect replacement!
Favorite Moment: Hanging out with Laura and Morgan last night. A new Mexican restaurant opened up in Uptown this week and we wanted to check it out. I had signed up for the enews and received a free coupon for table side guacamole. Um….yes, please!!!!!
One strong ass margarita!
Table side guac? Don’t mind if I do!
One beef enchilada and one chicken enchilada. Gotta soak up those margaritas!
I also tried Octane when I was there. I ordered a vanilla latte and it was everything I wanted it to be and more!
Favorite Beauty Product: Last weekend I stopped in Sephora to pick up my birthday freebie and grabbed the smaller size of the Urban Decay All Nighter make up setting spray. I have been using it all week and I have to say….I like it! It works better than the Make Up Forever HD Powder. I have loved every UD product that I have ever tried, so no surprise.
Usually I am a pretty laid back, easy going person. It’s not often that I say “Just NO that is NOT OK.” But sometimes it is needed! Here are some things I am not OK with:
–Drunk driving. This should never happen. Ever.
–Taking credit for someone else’s work
–People who think they are so much better than others
–Ignorance – People who want to argue about a topic they know nothing about
What are some things that you are not OK with?
And of course, Wednesday didn’t really happen if I didn’t confess a few things in ecard form, am I right?!
Confessions in ecards:
When I saw that Helene and Sarah were talking about guilty pleasures for the #totalsocial this month, I knew I had to get my shit together and actually link up. What a fun topic!
1. Keeping Up With the Kardashians – Chris HATES this show. I think a little bit of his soul dies every time he catches me watching this garbage. I can’t help it, I love to hate them. They are absolutely ridiculous and they make me feel normal.
2.Cheesy hair band songs – I have an entire playlist full of this garbage. My parents basically raised us listening to the hair bands and I can’t help it. Whatever, don’t even pretend that you aren’t singing along to this song now!
3. Beer glasses – I love having fun beer glasses. I can’t help but spend lots of time checking them out at World Market and other places that have them. Double points if it is a brewery that we like!
4. Pictures of our furkids – My iPhone is filled with pictures of these critters. And food.
5. Law and Order SVU marathons – I can’t help but watch them. I have spent many a Sunday parked on my ass watching hours of Stabler and Benson. No matter I have seen the episode five times.
6. Funny ecards – Obviously. I can keep myself entertained for hours!
7. Sephora – Is it just me, or when you walk in that place do you just feel different? So many pretty lights, pretty packages, amazing smells. They suck me in every damn time!
8. Nail polish – I might have a problem
9. Jelly Belly – Give me ALL the Jelly Belly!!!! (Except for the buttered popcorn flavor, that shit is nasty!)
10. Needing to leave things on an even number or multiple of five. (OCD probz)
What are your guilty pleasures?
This past weekend was full of fun so let’s just jump right in, shall we? First let me start off with Friday at work. Laura had a special birthday surprise sent to my office, balloons and chocolate! Does she know how to make my day or what?!?! Friday I went to lunch with my friend Courtney, and after work I came home and cleaned the house and finished reading the ninth book in the Stephanie Plum series. Saturday – I got up bright and early and met my sister in Trussville for a little morning shopping. We walked around TJ Maxx and Target and then went up to the Pinnacle for a few minutes to do some birthday shopping for my niece who’s birthday is today! (Happy Birthday Haven!!!!!) She gave us some cantaloupes out of her garden and my birthday present. A curling iron, iron guard spray and three nail polishes! Can’t wait to try them all out! Around noon I headed home to meet up with Chris to start the birthday celebrations. He took me to pick up my birthday present: My first Kate Spade purse to join the collecting Look how fun the inside is! Then we headed to World of Beer. Duh! I ordered the Tater Tot Nachos and they had a new Strawberry Cider on tap, Crown Valley Strawberry. It was delicious! I also tried to Trim Tab 88 which was amazing as well! One of our friends, Jeff, happened to be there! Our favorite crew was working on Saturday, I snuck a picture with Charles. Our friends Lanney and Diane came down from Huntsville to meet up with us while we were there. When we were heading out, Destiny left me a sweet message: We headed over to Southern Kitchen for dinner. I ordered the Jackson Burger that has bacon and pimento cheese. For an appetizer we had cajun angels, which are shrimp wrapped in bacon with a cajun sauce. Delicious! After dinner we walked over to the Westin, ordered some drinks at Todd English and took them up to the roof top to chat. Sunday – We got the grocery shopping out of the way first thing Sunday morning, then headed to Game Stop to pick up a few games. We got Super Putty, Trial Fusions and the remastered Duck Tails. We checked out Bargain Hunt while we were out, and then headed to lunch at J Alexander’s! I ordered the Alex Salad and Potato Soup. After lunch we went to the Galleria and I picked up the Urban Decay Setting Spray and my birthday gift from Sephora, then Chris took me to get us a slice of Cookie Cake to take home because it isn’t a birthday without cookie cake!!! It was Delicious!!!!! We also stopped by 2nd and Charles and scored a great deal on Mario Tennis for our Gamecube. Sunday evening Chris’s parents stopped by to visit for a little while. We watched a little of pre-season football and tried out the Ducktails game, which was super fun until we got stuck on a part that neither of could get past and we gave up. We also watched a few reruns of Big Bang while we ate some black bean nachos then headed to bed. I had a packed weekend full of lots of fun!!!! All the text messages, facebook book and other social media shout outs were wonderful. I sure do know a lot of people that know how to make a girl feel extra special! Just like that, birthday weekend is over and it is back to reality!
Favorite Song: 50 Cent – In Da Club – Because it’s my birthday! Duh! (Well, Sunday)
Favorite Moment: I met up with some of my favorite blogging pals last night at Jack Brown’s Beer and Burgers! Bloggers – check, burgers -check, beer – check check. What more can you freaking ask for?
Favorite Drink: I have been trying to only have diet sodas out at restaurants when I really want one. I had slipped in to a horrible habit of having them at work again and I needed to stop. I had replaced diet coke with the Zevia ones but still. I was obsessed with the Twinings Blackcurrent tea last year and I fell in love with it all over again. I like to steep it then pour it over ice. I don’t even miss the diet coke.
I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
