weekend shenanigans

Weekend Shenanigans

Is it just me, or is October in a hurry to get on up out of here?!?! I swear the month just started and here we are in the last week already. Not that the days are going by fast though. Good grief, I thought 5pm was never going to come on Friday!

This weekend we…..

–Washed three loads of baby laundry! I washed every last sock, towel and blanket with Dreft and breathed that stuff in like a drug. I love that smell! Even Mac loves it because when I was fold blankets he kept trying to curl up in them. Next week will be the clothes! Thankfully we only got 2-3 newborn pieces and everything else was 0-3 months, 3 months, 3-6 months and up so I think we are safe to fit in everything.


–Watched Alabama beat Texas A&M! Roll Tide!!! Have you seen the Jermaine Funnymaine Johnson videos highlighting each week of the SEC as a Bama fan? Those videos crack me up!!! You can find them here. My favorite line this week? “Boy the Gus Bus got an oil change and new rotors.”

–Saturday night we hit up one of our favorite spots, Crazy Horse, for a late dinner. I ordered the Southern Burger and it was delicious!! It had fried green tomatoes on it. Southern and fabulous indeed. If you live in the Birmingham area, I promise you this place is worth the drive! Best steaks you will find in town too!


I got the latest Allure box in the mail. I am going to discontinue my membership. I am tired of getting same brands over and over again. I haven’t reviewed a box since being pregnant because I cant use all of the skin items I get right now but thinking about doing one last post on things I liked and didn’t like from the last several boxes.


Sunday was meal planning, grocery shopping and food prep as always. The rest of the day was spent catching up on reading, catching up on shows and a whole lot of this…



I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

    i’ve always wondered what came in those subscription boxes…like what do you do with the stuff that you don’t like/use? i suppose you can give them away but that seems like such a waste 🙁

    those baby toys!! so cute.

    All the mini baby things are so cute! I’m sure it feels so good to be checking things off your list in preparation! Your dinner looks amazing– and now I’m craving a burger and fries at like 9am, haha.

    Oh I just love all the baby clothes, so sweet!

    Ah baby clothes! I swear there’s nothing sweeter. Almost makes me want to have a baby… almost! 😉 So glad Alabama pulled out a win this weekend! I’m not a burger eater, but I LOVE a BLT with fried green tomatoes! I’m pretty sure they make everything taste better. Can’t believe October is nearly over! Hope you have a great Monday!

    Uh, that baby hippo soft animal is freaking adorable.

    I love the smell of Dreft too! I completely agree that October is in a hurry-mode lol. I feel like it was just the first a few days ago and now it’s almost the end of the month.

    Seriously Mac is just the cutest! Dart also likes to mess up his blankets right after we take his stuff out of the wash. It must be the fresh smells! And man, that game on Saturday! Y’all are just such a good team, I was glad that we were staying with y’all through the first half! And hooray for getting all the baby clothes washed! I managed not to do any laundry this week, which is a little scary!

    I love the smell of Dreft, it smells so good. Ok, October is going so fast, it is making my head spin. It’s crazy to think that it is almost over. It’s like I blinked and it was over. Time needs to slow down a bit.

    I cancelled my Birchbox subscription a couple years ago for the same reason – and never looked back. Don’t really miss it at all! And I would maybe pick up a couple more newborn outfits!! You can always keep the tags on them in case baby is big, but Haddie was 7lbs 14oz and wore newborn size for the first 6 weeks! It was so annoying to worry about going out shopping for her the second we got home for more clothes!

    Oh my goodness that burger looks amazing!!

  • Reply Rach @ This Italian Family October 24, 2016 at 4:05 pm

    Crazy Horse sounds awesome! Your burger looks so good!

    And awww, love all the baby things. So awesome that you guys are getting everything ready! 🙂

    Is it crazy that I just got butterflies seeing all the baby clothes in your washer?!? I am so excited for you! I met the nicest people from Alabama this weekend out in Arizona….the guy actually challenged our waiter to a pushup contest and then of course I had to tell him all about my blog friend Nadine that lives in Alabama that I’ve never met before but basically talk to every day. You know us blogger girls it’s totally normal 🙂

    Aww, memories! I remember doing all of Caleb’s laundry before he was born and organizing it all in his room. 🙂 So fun! Baby detergent smells the best! We stopped using it when he was about a year and just started doing his laundry with ours. Makes life easier but smell less scrumptious. Haha.

    Mac is so cute as usual!

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis October 24, 2016 at 10:53 pm

    I think that has to be the cutest load of laundry I’ve ever seen! Puppy snuggles are always a highlight of my weekend

    There was a football game this weekend? I must’ve missed it. 😉

  • Reply Lauren @ Oh Hey! I Like That! October 25, 2016 at 12:39 pm

    Fried green tomatoes on a burger?!?!?!?!? Could life get any better than that?!

  • Reply Jennifer Massey October 30, 2016 at 8:52 pm

    That Tatcha hand cream intrigues me, but the Briogeo… I’ve gotten that stuff I don’t know how many times from multiple boxes and I’ve been underwhelmed. The Spongelle thing is something I wouldn’t use, but I’m intrigued by that, too.

    I know you commented to me that you might be going with Sephora Play. The only thing I’d caution you on is that they do have a wait list, but it does open up frequently, so check on a daily basis and try to sign up. Sometimes invites open up and they don’t send out an email.
