Weekend Shenanigans

This weekend was sort of dubbed my birthday weekend since it sucks when your birthday falls on a Wednesday. Of course it went by super fast, as always. I didn’t get done near as many things as I would have liked to. There’s always next weekend, right?

Thursday Laura and I went to Tropicaleo again. I wanted to hit them up a second time before their popup lunches went away. I couldn’t bring myself to order anything but the El Cubano because it is that amazing. I also ordered a side of tostones and got a craft local made ginger ale. If you cant have craft beers….craft soda is the next best thing for a little treat.



Friday, Laura twisted my arm to “forget my lunch” and go to Post Office Pies. When they first opened, several people (including Laura) were not fans. They keep making the top list for pizza in the area and were even on the top 33 pizza in the country list this year so we decided to give them another chance. I am so glad we did!!! It was delicious and I want to go back!!!! And to make it even better?? They make their own Cherry Limeades there! My life was complete.

Saturday morning I did the usual cleaning of the house, and then Chris and I headed up to Warrior to meet some sketchy people off Craiglist for something he wanted to buy. They weren’t really that sketchy…I just think everyone from Craigslist is! After that, we met up with his parents at J Alexanders for my birthday lunch. I didn’t bother taking a picture of my Thai Kai Salad because you have seen it a million times. Chris’s steak came with a side of mac n cheese and since he is staying strong on his diet, I felt the need to eat every last bite of it. Amazing!!!


After lunch, we went by Bargain Hunt, Babies R Us and then Nordstrom Rack. I had really been wanting a new pair of sunglasses and since I couldn’t decide between two pairs…I got both!


I love Kate Spade glasses! They are so cute and so comfortable. And Nordstrom Rack always has amazing pricing on them as well!!!

Sunday morning I finished reading Where We Fall then headed out to get some grocery shopping done. I had stopped by TJ Maxx before Target and found this gorgeous Michael Kors bracelet that I had been wanting at a major steal. Couldn’t pass it up!!!


The rest of the day was binging on One Tree Hill while snuggling with Mac! This picture of Chris and Mac melts my heart.

I hope you have a fabulous weekend!!! Linking up with Biana.

    Yay to having a birthday celebration weekend and to new goodies! I’m with ya on the craigslist thing. Most people are completely fine, but you never know who’s going to show up when you meet people to sell/buy something. lol Happy Monday!

  • Reply Marie August 22, 2016 at 9:42 am

    Love your new sunnies, they are both so fab! I literally celebrate the whole month of my birthday, why not, right?? haha. Ok, that pizza looks amazing!!! Happy Monday.

    Give me all the food! I have been craving pizza like no other. That mac & cheese also looks amazing. Glad you had a good weekend celebrating your birthday!

  • Reply Audrey August 22, 2016 at 10:59 am

    Treating yourself to festive lunches is the best 🙂 I totally think of Craigslist as Sketch-City, too. haha. I’m glad you weren’t abducted. hahaha! Those pictures of Mac are adorable!

  • Reply chelsea jacobs August 22, 2016 at 11:15 am

    Any place that makes cherry limeades is a winner!!

  • Reply Rebecca Jo August 22, 2016 at 11:18 am

    That’s why I never do the Craigslist thing – I’m too afraid of weird people.
    LOVING those glasses
    Glad your birthday continued on for the weekend

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista August 22, 2016 at 11:21 am

    Still drooling over those KS sunnies! And all that food looks amazing, especially that mac and cheese! Yay for birthday weekends, and cheers to a fabulous week birthday twin <3

    We met up with some sketchy Craigslist people this weekend too! Ha! And they really weren’t sketchy…but I feel the same way as you. It’s always sketchy in my mind. And so weird…you get there, you make the exchange, you leave. It feels like a drug deal. Hahaha. That pizza looks AMAZING. And the cherry limeade…I looove that stuff.

  • Reply Jessica @ Pleas(e) & Carrots August 22, 2016 at 12:02 pm

    Ahh you always get the best food! And those sunglasses are so cute! Glad you had a great birthday weekend!!

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph August 22, 2016 at 12:54 pm

    Nice purchase on the double sunglasses!

  • Reply Erika August 22, 2016 at 2:21 pm

    I am drooling over both those sunglasses. I have a major Kate Spade addiction. That pizza looks so good! It reminds me of this burger place we have here that everyone raves about and has made national lists for best burger and we just don’t get it! There are 3 or 4 places in town I think have WAY better burgers! Might have to give it another try now.

  • Reply Amy Getz August 22, 2016 at 3:09 pm

    OMG – love your new sunglasses and bracelet. I think I need to shop more! Ha – no, I don’t! I really need to read your weekend updates with a full belly because you always make me hungry – everything looks so good! And yes, there is always next weekend!

  • Reply Rach @ This Italian Family August 22, 2016 at 3:31 pm

    Glad you gave the pizza place another shot since it turned out so great this time! We did the same thing with a pizza place here in Memphis this weekend. We’ve eaten there twice in the past and were not impressed, but some of our best friends LOVE it so we thought we’d give it a try once again… turned out third time was the charm. It was delicious!

    Sounds like a great weekend celebrating your birthday! One Tree Hill is ridiculously addicting so I understand binge watching, haha! Just think, on your next birthday you will have a BABY to celebrate with you! 🙂

  • Reply Amanda Elizabeth - Meet at the Barre August 22, 2016 at 3:40 pm

    Yes!!!! I love the OTH reference! You got some major shopping scores, I love those sunnies! Also, everyone on Craigslist is a serial killer until proven otherwise.

  • Reply laura August 22, 2016 at 3:46 pm

    those sunglasses are adorable!!!! And haha, I need to twist your arm more often!! That pizza was still great a few days later — so we will need to be going back! And that picture with Mac and Chris!!!! All the heart eyed emojis!!

  • Reply Erin LFF August 22, 2016 at 4:07 pm

    Okay so basically your post made me want to shop (love the glasses & bracelet!) AND made me want mac n’ cheese haha… how dare you!? 😉 Glad you had a good bday week/weekend celebrating though. I had a few good cherry limeades in my last couple month of pregnancy and they HIT.THE.SPOT!

  • Reply carly August 22, 2016 at 4:25 pm

    Homemade ginger ale?? YUM. And what are tostones? They look amazing! Loving both of those sunglasses– I never think to look at sunglasses at Nordstrom Rack for some reason, but now I’m definitely going to!

  • Reply mandie August 22, 2016 at 4:52 pm

    Sounds like a nice birthday weekend. 🙂

    I want that pizza & the mac & cheese RIGHT NOW!!!! Ha, ha!

  • Reply Lindsay August 22, 2016 at 6:54 pm

    I always leave your blog so hungry! You eat at the best places! We live in such a small town and I hate that we don’t have many options for lunch. Sigh. So I’ve never been to Nordstrom Rack but I need to finally go so I can find some of these amazing deals! I love both of those sunglasses! Hope you had a great Monday!

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders August 22, 2016 at 6:56 pm

    If there’s pizza involved I’m pretty sure that I would have left my lunch too! You had such a good weekend filled with lots of deals and lots of good food too! That Mac and cheese looks delicious while your other Mac is such a cutie! I hope that your week started off ok!

  • Reply Jenna August 22, 2016 at 9:42 pm

    That pizza, though… I needs to be in my mouth right now. Damn this diet. Everything looks so amazing and so naughty when I’m trying to behave myself.

  • Reply Emelia August 22, 2016 at 10:43 pm

    Now I’m thirsty, cherry limeade sounds too good! I love the sunglasses you bought, wish we had a Nordstrom Rack near us…then again, it could be really bad news for my bank account. ha!

  • Reply ellesees.net August 23, 2016 at 6:51 am

    I need to hit up a NR more often!! I’m so bad about doing that!
    I can tell that pizza is good just by looking at it. That’s my favorite pizza combo!

  • Reply Jess August 23, 2016 at 12:58 pm

    What are tostones? Those look delicious. That pizza also looks amazing. Your pup is so snuggly and adorable.

  • Reply Laura August 23, 2016 at 4:45 pm

    WOW!!! That pizza looks delicious! Happy belated birthday:)

    LOVE the kate spade sunnies, so pretty! i have never tried any on, or seen them, i will have to have a look at nordstrom rack. are they very expensive? i know they are on sale there, but still. i'm cheap and i break sunnies so easily so i want to be prepared lol, otherwise i will stay away so i don't fall in love with them.

  • Reply Kristen August 25, 2016 at 11:08 am

    That pizza looks ahhhhmazing

    Those sunnies are the cutest! Even on sale were they still very expensive? I’m cheap and break sunnies easily so I don’t like to waste money but they are soooo cute
