The One With the Sun

You guys, the weather this past weekend was absolutely GORGEOUS!!!! The kind of weather you dream about. We basically spent most waking hours outside, and I wasn’t mad about it.

We also enjoyed some delicious food this weekend. Friday, I stopped by Edgar’s for the cobb salad, we hit up Parish on Saturday and I was whipping it up in the kitchen Sunday with steak street tacos and homemade spaghetti with Italian sausage.

I wanted to get some stuff done around the house too, but decided that it is going to rain some next weekend…and why waste all that weather being stuck inside?? In Alabama, it gets too hot too fast, so you have to enjoy it while you can!

Since I am posting a weekend recap on a Wednesday night, again, can we talk about the Billboard Music Awards?? I rarely watch award shows anymore. Mostly, because I never know who half the people are because I am old. I am either listening to 90s and early 2000’s stuff in my car, or Disney stuff that Zoe picks. But I happened to tune in tonight, and I am so glad I did. I got to watch Mariah Carey sing and accept the Icon award. How awesome. I have always loved her music, and she looked fabulous! I am stretching my bedtime so I can watch Paula Abdul too!!!

We moved into our new office Monday, and I am still trying to get used to sitting out in the open with 2 of my coworkers staring directly at me. The walls around my desk are only 4 foot tall, and I feel so exposed!!!! However, the openness and all the sunlight that pours through the windows is incredible. The space is soooo nice and there are so many little details that were thought of. Like our water machines have pellet ice. PELLET ICE YOU GUYS!!!! We have a “cafe” instead of a break room now, and that space is incredible too. Plus I am a block closer to some of the restaurants that I would like to frequent more often. And I get to park in a parking deck now instead of the shitty lost outside by the Redmont where no one can seem to park correctly and at least five of my co-workers have had their cars hit in that lot since I started back in November. Not good odds, you know?

I hope you all are having a wonderful week!! I hope to be back tomorrow with a Friday Favorites post. Anyone else have their Sephora carts loaded and ready for the VIB Sale???I am about to do that now!

    You really do have to enjoy the nice weather while you have the chance- it feels like it’s so rare these days. Love Zoe’s pure joy riding around in her little car! Your new office sounds so nice- sometimes little perks/conveniences can make such a huge difference. I just ordered a few things from Sephora for my birthday so I’m (likely) not getting anything else, but can’t wait to see what you pick up during the sale!

    Sounds like a great weekend!! And yay for new office perks. When we moved I got out of the situation of staring at my coworkers. Haha. It was kind of bittersweet, though, because we were used to working in such close quarters. HA!

    Can you send some of that weather our way, please? I feel like we’ve had nothing but rain lately! UGH. Buying anything fun from the Sephora sale?

    OK… so are the people that designed your office doing ours – because it sounds just like the same get up – & we just got a pellet ice machine too – haha! I was like _ FORGET YOU GAS STORE ICE!!! Though, ours melts like in 5 minutes ???

    I’m really hoping for more of those amazing weather weekends!! Plus you made street tacos?!? Tell me your ways. I have my eye on a few things at Sephora, and I’ve been waiting for this sale to finally pull the trigger.

    Zoe’s hair is getting so blonde. I love her adorable mini mouse car. I don’t know why the open office plans have become a thing. I feel it’s adds more stress to employees and I recently read this article that says to ditch open office plans https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/327142
