Weekend Shenanigans – The Last of Summer

Well hey there last day if summer! With the temps dropping into the 80’s for the next several days instead of the 90’s…maybe fall is coming here?! One can hope!

Friday – I went to lunch with the co-workers Friday. I normally only eat with the ones that bring their lunches during the week and go out with my girl friends on Friday but we had been talking about wanting to try the Greg Brady burger at Jack Browns and they only serve it on Fridays. You guys…..this burger…..


It has house made macaroni and cheese, a slice of cheese and BBQ potato chips on it. Freaking delicious!

Friday evening I was exhausted and we decided to stay in. I made some seven layer dip and we hung around listened to music and watched TV.

Saturday – I got up bright and early on Saturday morning and worked out, made breakfast then cut our front and half the side yard. I then got ready and we headed down town to meet up with Laura, B and Meighan!!! We started out at World of Beer to watch the Alabama game. I was super nervous about the game because my coworkers bet our corporate office that we would beat our spread against Florida or else we would have to were Gator gear to our retreat next month. When the game started out I got really nervous because for a few minutes Florida was winning 14 to 7. Luckily we pulled it out and wont 42 to 21. Thank the football gods I don’t have to wear that hideous Gator shit next month! Annnnnd now they all have to wear Bama gear. Muh haha! The moral of the story? Never let your coworkers place a bet on your behalf. Talk about stress!

Of course Laura had to wear her Auburn colors.

After the game, we walked down to Fuego for some dinner! I ordered the taco salad and it was delish!


After dinner, Meighan headed to meet up with her fiance and Laura, B, Chris and I headed to Lakeview and the guys hung out at Vape Loft while Laura and I grabbed bushwackers at Lou’s! In true grandma fashion, we were home by 10:30 pm!

Sunday – I got up early Sunday and cleaned the house, made breakfast, meal planned then got our grocery shopping down. I also stopped by Sephora to return a new face wash that I tried that blew my face up. I am so glad they have such an amazing return policy. I came home and made Chris lunch and prepared food to take to my sister’s house for dinner. We celebrated my dad’s birthday last night with him. (It is tomorrow.) Tracy had all the kids home, so it was nice to see everyone for awhile. She makes these amazing chicken quesadilla roll ups that are absolutely amazing. I think I have her recipe sitting around here and I will have to share it one day!

I didn’t get home until 8:00 pm, and the rest of the evening looked like this:


Annnd the Steelers pulled off a win last night! Yay!

And that was how I spent the last weekend of summer!

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!
