Weekend Shenanigans

Ugh. Monday. Am I right? I am exhausted! A certain Little Miss thought she was too good for naps all weekend. Goodness! Anyways, Saturday started off with an appointment at the hair salon. I love my hair girl, it was fun catching up with her and leaving feeling fabulous!

I mentioned Friday that one of my friends from Atlanta was coming to Birmingham this weekend. Unfortunately, Chris ended up having to work a lot this weekend (poor guy!!!!)….but we did squeeze in a great lunch with them on Saturday!

I suggested a few places to them, and they picked Saw’s BBQ. If you read any food critic list or southern magazine, you will know Saw’s is usually at or near the top of the list for best BBQ. It was so great getting to catch up with B and his wife. This was the first time that Chris actually got to meet them and I hope that we will get to see them more often now. Good company, good food!

Saturday evening I stumbled upon The Blind Side. I forgot how much I loved that movie! Speaking of things from the past….did you guys know that Party of Five is on Netflix?!?!?! I loved that show and I am totally re-watching it!

Sunday morning I read a little more of The Girl Before and flipped through a few magazines. We did our grocery shopping and dropped by to see our youngest nephew. He turned seven this weekend!! The rest of the afternoon was spent consuming fettucine alfredo, catching up on some of our shows and we watched the first three episodes of Big Little Lies! I was a little skeptical when I heard that they were making a tv series with it, but they have done a really good job. I love the casting!

Other things that happened this weekend? We took our first family photo of three. I know, she is almost 5 months old!!! I have millions of pictures of Zoe by herself, and several of her with Chris. But none of the three of us, and hardly any of me and her together. I have decided to really make more of an effort to change that. Even if they are with a few selfies!

 I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend! Linking up with Biana.

    Your hair looks so pretty! So I just started reading Big Little Lies because I am a million years behind in books. Did you read it? I have this weird feeling like I read it before or it’s really similar to something else… or I have lost my mind and forgot. I loved Party of Five… That sounds like a binge waiting to happen!

  • Reply Lauren @ Oh Hey! I Like That! April 24, 2017 at 1:46 pm

    First of all, you look super gorgeous in these pics! Secondly, Party of Five is on Netflix????!!!! Omg omg omg, freaking out!

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders April 24, 2017 at 5:20 pm

    I know that one of the things that I’m super guilty of too is not getting pictures of myself, so I hope that you continue to get all the pictures with Zoe even if they’re selfies! Your hair looks fabulous, and it really is so much fun to have a day of pampering! Also, those fried pickles look like heaven, and all I want to eat now is fried pickles lol!

    Your hair looks gorgeous and healthy! Love the loose curls…hope little miss let’s you get some rest this week so you feel more refreshed for work. I’m with you on loving The Blind Side movie. I can watch it over and over and still feel the same emotions.

    OMG! That last picture of the two of you! You should definitely frame that one.

  • Reply Elle sees April 25, 2017 at 6:57 am

    I love your hair! Yay for friends visiting. AND YAY for family pics!! That’s always a tough one to remember–tons of kid pics, but not as many family ones!

  • Reply Rach @ This Italian Family April 26, 2017 at 4:04 pm

    That last photo of you two is ADORABLE! So cute! And I love that you made time to take a photo of the three of you together! She will love having that as she gets older. It can be easy to think that unless you have time to take a Pinterest-perfect photo that it’s not worth doing. But that’s so not the case! Those little snapshots are so special!

    So glad you got to catch up with your friend and enjoy some yummy food! 🙂
