Weekend Shenanigans

Friday-Friday evening Chris had one of his friends over, so we stayed in and hung out with him for awhile listening to music, telling old stories and snacking.

Saturday- I worked out first thing. Yay for week three in a row of 6 day a week work outs! I got a lot of cleaning and laundry done. I also finished reading the twelfth book in the Stephanie Plum series! We decided to stay in to watch all of the games for the day, and that is just what we did. We watched game after game after game! Happy with Alabama’s win, and sad that the Dawgs lost to South Carolina. Then we watched the game that wouldn’t end with Florida and Kentucky. Three overtimes? I was so ready for it to be over! Not that I really cared who won, it was a good game to watch though!

Sunday – In the morning we hung out and had breakfast and watched some TV. We then got ready and headed downtown for Trucks by the Tracks. It is an even at Railroad Park where all the food trucks are at the same place. It was super crowded down there! So many food trucks! So many people! So…much….heat. Fall, you can’t get here soon enough!!!!






We walked around for awhile and enjoyed seeing all the different trucks and people out and about. And all the dogs!!!! So many doggies! But then this northern blooded girl couldn’t take another second of the heat. I cant enjoy eating hot food when it is 934859348690468 degrees outside, so I asked Chris if he minded we head elsewhere. He was down with that since World of Beer or Jack Brown’s were his choices :)

We met a bartender that we hadn’t met before since we usually don’t venture downtown on Sundays. He was super nice and knew all the right beers to have Chris try. I ordered the Tavern Taters with beer cheese and Chris ordered the Golden Ale Shrimp. Both were delicious, as always! Duh!



Food porn, you’re welcome. Trust me, I hate myself Monday mornings when I see all this food that I only allow myself on the weekends while I await my all veggie healthy lunch that I repeats all week. Damn metabolism!

After WOB, we wanted to check out Asian Rim off Hwy 280. They told us about their Watermelon Margaritas….so we needed to check them out! Chris really liked them, I myself am not a huge fan of tequila based drinks in general, but it was good. And pretty!


We will certainly be back there again one day for their sushi!!!! I <3 sushi so hard!

The rest of the evening was filled with grocery shopping without a list (my OCD self had a mental list I checked three times in the store) and working on some blog related things.

Livvy tried to serve herself up on a place mat. Strange cat.


I hope everyone has a great week!!! I am guest posting today over on Jana’s page while she is out of town. Please go check it out and leave some love :) Jana is awesome and I am very certain that if we lived closer, we would be hanging on the reg. The girl has impeccable taste in music, beer and humor. Can you really ask for anything more? No.



Friday Favorites

Favorite Song: U Got It Bad – Usher – Love love LOVE me some Usher! One time when I was shopping at Target next to Lenox Mall in Atlanta, Usher was standing next to me in the CD aisle. I heard a girl gasp a few feet from me and I looked up and there he was. I was like ummmm don’t you have someone to do this for you? He laughed.

Fun fact – I can’t listen to this song without thinking about The Sweetest Thing. That is one of my favorite movies!!!

Favorite Moment: Girls night!!! I met up with Morgan, Meegan, Brooks, Meighan and Laura last night at Five for ladies night! We enjoyed some delicious cocktails and food! (I LOVE all the chandeliers in this place!!! This is the first time I sat inside, usually I sit on the patio but it was so damn hot and humid last night!!!)


Morgan and I started off with the Strawberry Lemonade cocktail…


And then I tried the Blueberry Mint


Surely no one here is surprised that I ordered the cheeseburger as my meal? Five has one of the best burgers in Birmingham for sure!


Favorite Phone Call: I talked to my sister last night on my way home. Cooper (my four year old nephew) wanted to talk to me. We talked for a few minutes, then my sister got back on. Then my sister said oh wait, Cooper has something else he wants to tell you! Cooper got on the phone and recited the Pledge of Allegiance word for word to me perfectly! It was the most precious thing ever!!!

Favorite Purchase: Sunday I had to stop by Sephora because I was out of eye make up remover. Normally I just get Maybelline or Neutrogena but I got the Sephora brand on a recommendation from Amanda and I love it! I have zero issues swiping my liner and mascara right off! Totally worth it!

SEPHORA COLLECTION - Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover

I admit, this is a huge pet peeve of mine


And now I wait...

Funny Memes: During arguments girls be like this

The face you make when you know someone doesn't like you but you don't even care. Lol

I love this funny cat #funnycatmeme #funnycats #cats find more funny cats here http://www.funnycatsblog.com

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!!!! Also, Go Sports!


–I suck at hair. I spent 25 minutes trying to curl mine on Sundday and it looked anything but curly. It just looked like a hot mess. Like seriously, how?!?!?! How do  you people do it?

–I can’t stand petty bitches. I chose to take the high road in most instances in life. I wish others would do the same. I guess it makes for a good laugh?

–Olivia is getting more curious as she gets older. This morning I saw her around the toilet in our guest bath. I said no Livvy, but she has never listened to me so why start now? She hopped up and then promptly fell in. I could not stop laughing. I am chuckling all over again as I type this because you should have seen the look on her face. Does that make me a bad cat mom? I am going with no, it was funny as shit and serves her right! You don’t see the dogs doing stupid stuff like that. I just wish Mac and Gracie would have seen it!

–I have already given up one of my goals this month. And by give up, I mean I never even started it. Meh. The good news is that I have been nailing my 6 days a week of work outs!

–The other day I was just signing in my car, like this:

Annnndddd then I realized that it was my exit and I had to get over two lanes super fast. Oops!

Confessions in ecards:

Oh, yes...that.

Weekend Shenanigans

We seem to be full steam ahead into September. I am not really sure how that happened, but I will take it!

Friday – As I was leaving work Friday afternoon, I saw two different rainbows on my way home! One that was above our office, and one on I-59 heading towards Trussville.



Friday evening Laura and Bennett came up to our house! It was so nice to have friends over. We sampled some beers, listened to some awesome music….and then battled it out in Mario Kart! I discovered that Laura shares the same love for Marvelous Three/Butch Walker. The only picture that escaped from the night was this gem of Chris and Mac. BFF!


In other news, Mac clearly needs a fur cut! He is looking like a crazy man!

Saturday – We got a lot of stuff done around the house Saturday morning. We then settled in to catch the Alabama game. We won 41 to nothing. Afterwards we ran some errands and did some shopping. Chris needed some new tennis shoes to match all his Alabama gear that he wears on the weekends, and I wanted to go to Nordstrom Rack to see if they still had my shoes that I have had my eye on.

While I was there, I happened to score a great top and sweater too! Does anyone else take pictures of everything in the fitting room before they buy it like I do? *crickets*



These Cole Haan shoes are the most comfortable flats I have ever tried on in my life. EVER!! They had a tan pair and a tan pair with some animal print detailing on them as well. Perhaps if these remain as comfortable as I think they will, I will go back for some more! I tried on a few Tory Burch shoes and they were all instantly very painful. How the hell do all of you wear them around? If I am paying that much for a pair of shoes, they shouldn’t hurt so bad! You all are crazy!

Sunday – I got the meal planning and grocery shopping done. Speaking of which, Target finally put out their seasonal creamers!!!! In addition to the Pumpkin Pie Spice and Frosted Sugar Cookies, they had Gingerbread Latte and Peppermint Mocha. Oh yeah! My mornings just got a lot sweeter. See what I did there?

IMG_3618.JPGSunday afternoon we watched some football and both the Steelers and the Falcons won! YAY!!!!! :) And we worked very hard on a project that we are starting up! Probably more to come on that later.

I hope that everyone had a great weekend! Let’s kick some Monday butt!
