Water Water Everywhere

I am pretty sure that yesterday was the quickest day in the history of days. I mean seriously…it felt like the day was just flying by and then I got the inevitable Sunday night blues.

Friday – Friday I went to lunch with my weekly “lunch club” and it was wonderful. Then I came back to work and soon after got a phone call from Chris. It went a little like this. “So um. I came home today and was in the basement and I could hear water running. Turns out the main water line into our house burst. I am going to head back to Lowe’s.”

Oh gee! Own a house they said. It will be fun they said! So my picture of water today for Kelli’s link up is actually lack of water. Can you get more creative then that? I think not.

Saturday – I got my hair did Saturday morning. Then I headed to pick up a few random things that we needed, and stopped by Marshal’s real quick because I wanted to see if they had any shampoos that I wanted. I happened to walk by these baskets on the way and I thought to myself…hmmmmm those would look AWESOME in my linen closet. I didn’t get them but now I kind of want to go back for them!



Saturday afternoon we met up with our friends from Huntsville. They were in town and it was Lanney’s birthday! We met up at World of Beer, then headed to Moe’s BBQ for dinner. Their turkey platter is DELISH!



After Moe’s we went to the Todd English pub for some drinks and to hang out on the patio at the Westin.

While we were there, the Alabama gymnastics team showed up. They had just won the SEC championship! ROLL TIDE! Chris got a picture with the coach!

Sunday – I did our meal planning and grocery shopping. I tried a new “power foods” salad for lunch. It had brussels sprouts, kale, broccoli, cranberries, pumpkin seeds and poppy seed dressing. It was amazing.



For dinner we tried Liz’s loaded chicken and cheese potatoes and it was good too!


And that was how the weekend just flew by!

    UGH, that water picture is no fun! I know Tyson wants to own a house but things like that is why I wouldn’t mind being a forever renter. I am going to learn to meal plan, I suck at it and we never have anything to eat.

    before you head back for those baskets, check Ikea. i could have sworn i saw those (or something very similar) for dirt cheap. although marshalls boasts “cheap” prices, i think ikea is actually cheaper. all hail cheap bitches!!

    and sucks about your water!! was chris able to fix it?? did it damage anything?

    Ooooh I need some covered baskets so I may have to head to Marshall’s to try to find those at lunch today… sorry about the water situation. Home ownership is so lame sometimes!

    UGH! We had the exact same thing happen to our house the weekend after we bought it. It was July, so hot, and we had to cut the sidewalk to get to the broken area. Miserable. I am so sorry! I almost picked up that exact salad at the grocery store the other day. I had the broccoli salad one the other day and it was delicious! I will have to get the Kale one next time!

    I don’t know what World of Beer is but it sounds like my kind of place! Love the baskets, you should go back 🙂 Sorry about the water, that looks like a disaster!

Did it cost an arm and a leg? I hope not girl. A lunch club sounds fun. What all did you get done to your hair? Where is the obligatory picture! That BBQ lunch plate looks freaking BOMB.com!

    That salad looks so good! And as for the water problem, I’m so sorry!

    I swear our weekend was super fast too! That totally sucks about the water line–ugh. That’s one thing I’m thankful for that we won’t be able to own for a good long time (we move around waaaaaay too much for that), is that whenever there is a big (read: expensive) problem it’s not ours to handle. Sheesh! That salad just made my mouth water–I might have to replicate it!

    Oh man that stinks about the water. I just recently had a flooding in my basement and it is not fun. Hope everything gets fixed ok. Those baskets are really cute, but those chicken and cheese potatoes look heavenly!

    So did you get the water leak fixed? That’s a major bummer! Hanging out on the patio at the westin sounds so fancy! LOL

    I feel you on the water or lack there of. My hot water heater broke last week and I about lost my shit. Well I did actually lose it but that’s not the point lol. That salad looks awesome!!!

    Sounds like a great weekend, except for the water problem. I had a similar disaster this week. The toilet backed up mysteriously, flooding the bathroom. As I ran downstairs to the basement to get some old towels to clean it up with, I saw that it was leaking through the basement ceiling. I could see the water falling but I could not pinpoint exactly where it was coming from… so I walked closer to see if I could find the spot and block it with a towel… and guess what? I walked right UNDER the dripping water and got toilet water on my head! 😛
