Weekend Shenanigans

The first weekend of May is in the books! It was a gorgeous weekend here in Alabama with temps in the 70’s. Gotta soak it up as much as possible, soon it will be hot AF and I will want nothing to do with the outdoors again.

Saturday morning my sister came over to hang out for a little bit and spend some time with Zoe. We headed to meet her niece for lunch at a local Mexican restaurant, then went to my nephew’s baseball game. Unfortunately, Zoe is not a fan of screaming parents and promptly had a break down. We had to leave a little early, but I at least got to see my nephew bat once and play on the catchers mound for a few minutes. I hope she gets over the screaming before football season!!!

That afternoon, Chris and I hit up HomeGoods and stopped by his parents house for a bit. We never made it out to eat, so we stopped at Publix on the way home and grabbed some snacks so we could make it home in time for Zoe’s bedtime. Classy AF with our dinner right here….

Sunday was meal planning and grocery shopping. I had to try the new Midnight Mint Frap at Starbucks. You guys, this one does not disappoint!!! So amazing and not too sweet. It was the perfect treat.

I had to snap a picture of Zoe in her cute outfit too!!! My Godmother got this one for her. I envy the fact that she can pull off white leggings. You will never find a light color on my bottom half. If makes me look a like the Stay Puff man. How cute is that tunic? I die!!!

Sunday night I made a bacon pasta that was delicious! I will be sharing the recipe soon! We enjoyed it while we caught up on Chicago Med/Fire/PD, Vampire Diaries and Scandal. Is it just me, or is this the best season of Scandal yet??

We did watch one episode of 13 Reasons Why on Friday evening. I am interested to see the rest of them. There are a lot of mixed reviews out there. I also started to do some organizing around the house. I redid the laundry area and we got a cute set up for the soap and brushes near the kitchen sink. Next up will be under the sinks. HomeGoods and TJMaxx didn’t have what I wanted so I am on the search on the internet I guess. No area is safe from reorganization!

What are you all getting for your mom for Mother’s Day? I haven’t quite decided yet. Usually I have that figured out by now!

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

    Aww! #Zoepix are always a welcome way to start the day! I loved the frapp, too, but I’m a sucker for anything mint!

    Zoe is just the cutest- all her outfits are the best. Girlfriend better get ready for football season – haha that made me chuckle. I love cleaning and organizing. I just keep going and getting rid of things- I’m loving it. If I haven’t touched it in a few years- bye! It feels so good to get rid of the clutter. Hope you have a great week!

    YES to Scandal! Killing it!!

    I am laughing so hard at your comment about the white leggings. I just told Jason that I could not do light-colored bottoms… I will not punish the world! Haha! And your dinner is like my favorite thing to eat. We have “snack night” often because there’s nothing better! Happy Monday, girl!

    Have you ever been to The Container Store? I went to one this weekend. I don’t know if they have an online presence, but they might have what you need!
    That frap looks SO good, but I don’t like chocolate + mint. So it’s a no go for me.
    Our dinners resemble that kind of meal more often than I’d care to admit… lol.

    Haha to your dinner! B and I ate pizza rolls for dinner last night, so you’re not alone! I LOOOOOVE that top pic of Zoe! Those blue eyes — Sheffield’s in for a world of hurt! In a good way, of course.

    It sounds like a very busy weekend, but perfect considering how awesome the weather was! We got a little bit warmer in Texas but it was kind of chilly in the mornings and I loved it! I bet that Zoe ends up changing her mind about screaming at sporting events, well except maybe if she’s at an Alabama football game, then I have a feeling that she will be screaming!

  • Reply Marie May 8, 2017 at 10:49 am

    Zoe is so cute!! That frappe looks so good!! I got a Vanilla Bean one on saturday. Oh it was so yummie. Happy Monday!!

    Glad you had a great weekend and the weather was beautiful! Zoe looks so cute in her outfit with those leggings. I can’t wait for you to share that pasta recipe, it looks so good! Mother’s Day is always a tough one for me. I think my sister and I are just going to plan a girls days with my Mom next weekend and then do brunch on Sunday. Flowers are always my go-to and some sort of handmade gift from the boys. Beautifully Candid

    I actually like ‘snacky’ dinners sometimes. Just a blurge kinda feeling.
    I’m not a big fan of mint drinks but I do want to try the smore one. Especially with it being HAPPY HOUR!!!! 😉

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista May 8, 2017 at 12:28 pm

    We whipped through all the episodes of 13 Reasons Why in a few days shamelessly, I can’t say enough great things about how fantastically well that show was written. Cue all the feelings, since it hits really close to home for me but I’m so glad this message is out there in pop culture and done so well.

    Check out Zoe in all her Target glory, that’s my girl! And I need to try that frappe! <3

    Her outfits are always so adorable! She’s going to be super fashionable for sure! 😉

    You had me at “bacon pasta.”

  • Reply Amanda Elizabeth May 8, 2017 at 2:46 pm

    I just spit out my water with the stay puff man you are ridiculous but I totally get it. There is only one pair of white jeans that I own that make me not look like I am shoving my thighs into tight casings. It’s all about the stretch lol.

  • Reply StephTheBookworm May 8, 2017 at 3:23 pm

    That pasta looks good, and so do your apps for dinner. Yum! LOL
    Love Zoe’s little outfit and leggings.

    I never go for the fun drinks at sbux but that sounds like one i have to try because I love mint!! So glad you guys had great weather this weekend!! Hope you have a great start to the week! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    Aww, poor Zoe with the screaming sports fan! She definitely needs to learn that it’s okay for football season 😉 And umm midnight mint frapp?! That sounds so good- what is it exactly?! I want one lol!

  • Reply Allison Arnone May 8, 2017 at 8:53 pm

    That pasta looks amazing (shouldn’t be commenting on blogs before dinner!). Can’t wait for you to finish 13 Reasons so I can hear your POV on it… I just heard they’re making a season 2 which is, interesting…

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis May 8, 2017 at 9:54 pm

    Love her baby cbue eyes and precious smile! Hey when you are parents, anything goes for dinner…lol

  • Reply Rach @ This Italian Family May 8, 2017 at 11:39 pm

    I hope Zoe is prepared for football season, haha! Lots of screaming coming soon. 😉 Glad you guys had a good weekend!

    That bacon pasta looks so good! I liked the Midnight Mint Frappuccino, tastes like a “Thin Mint” cookie.

  • Reply Bri @ North Star Girl Lone Star World May 9, 2017 at 6:46 am

    You had me at bacon! I’m pretty sure that the midnight mint mocha might be my new favorite! Definitely getting one today after work! I always love seeing Zoe pics. She is too cute!

  • Reply Carly May 9, 2017 at 1:29 pm

    Home Goods/TJ Maxx can be so hit or miss- I feel like there will be a million of something when I don’t need it, but when you need something you can’t find it. Zoe is so cute in her new outfit!

  • Reply kristen May 10, 2017 at 1:14 pm

    i don’t know if i am getting my mum anything – that sounds awful, but i’ve gotten her things she’s requested over the last few months and i’ll be seeing her in a month, and it costs SO much to ship and it takes like 3 weeks so.. eh. i’m with you, i will never wear light colours on my bottom half. unless it’s like pale grey baggy as shit sweatpants lol

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph May 11, 2017 at 12:01 pm

    I did flowers for all this year for Mother’s Day and said Eff It.

    Zoe is always stylin’!
