weekend shenanigans

Weekend Shenanigans

It was 36 degrees when I woke up this  morning. It was over 80 just the other day, and supposed to be 80 again tomorrow. Get it together, spring!!! Winter is hanging on like a clingy ex, isn’t it??? We had a good weekend over here. It was a good mix of cleaning all the things, catching up on some good TV, seeing lots of family, and relaxing.

Friday started with lunch at SoHo Social with a friend/old co-worker. If someone asks me what my favorite restaurant is in Birmingham, I can’t give you just one. But this one would be on my top five list for sure. I got the three bacon BLT with pimento cheese, sans the L and T and grilled on rye bread. OMG!!!! I was only able to eat half of it, because I loaded up on brussels, and the other half was perfect for Saturday morning breakfast in the toaster oven!

Saturday morning we decided to get all our grocery shopping done since the rest of the weekend was supposed to be nasty and rainy. Of course that means a trip to Target! Zoe knows what’s up when she sees that bullseye.

In true first world fashion, I was too exhausted from spending a ridiculous amount on groceries to come home and cook lunch. So we grabbed some Moe’s BBQ to go. Mmmmmm

Zoe took a 3+ hour nap on Saturday, so I was able to get ALLLLLL the cleaning done!!! It was fabulous.

Sunday morning, my sister came over to visit for a little while. We then met up with Chris’s parents for lunch at our favorite Mexican place. Zoe is a fan of rice, beans and tacos. I mean…she is our kid! Apparently this is her newest pose, not looking at the camera.

Sunday afternoon my dad stopped by to visit and brought Zoe a few goodies for Easter. He got her the cutest stuffed bunny, an Easter book, and of course…peeps. Just when I thought all the candy was out of the house. You know I am going to be in that, right?? It was nice getting to spend some time with him. The rest of the day was spent playing, watching too much Puppy Dog Pals and Vampirina, and catching up on the Chicago shows and Grey’s when Zoe went to bed.

Just like that, Monday is here and it is back to reality. Linking up with Biana. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

    IT IS SNOWING here as we speak. It was 80 on Friday. My allergies and I are OVER IT! I could eat a BLT every day – it’s my favorite sandwich! And I can never get enough sprouts! Happy Monday!

    LOL I love that Zoe loves Target. I am so tired of it being 80 one day & 30 the next! How about a nice compromise of 75… lol

    Our weather has been madness. We had some spring like weather last week, then this past weekend… a flipping ICE STORM!!!
    Lots of good eats. That bacon sandwich sounds incredible!

    Sounds like a fun weekend! Oh gosh, this weather is insane. It’s snowing by me – thankfully it wasn’t cold enough before for it to stick, but it’s crazy!


  • Reply Bri April 16, 2018 at 6:06 pm

    I think the weather is going crazy everywhere; it’s so weird!! Glad you had a good weekend otherwise. Happy Monday!

    80 degrees sounds like it’s far-fetched in Erie, Pa right now! UGH! Your sandwich looks SO good- I want that right now. A good productive mix of everything weekend is what I like – and Zoe’s hair looks like it’s getting long!

    High five Zoe for knowing what’s up when you see that beautiful bullseye! I can’t believe this weather, even here in FL it was super chilly today. Come onnnn spring <3

    Not to be too overly dramatic but this weather is killing me! I’m not ready at all for 100 degree weather but the girls have very limited cold weather clothes so I want the weather to make up its mind! Good call on getting the grocery shopping done early! And we always seem to be the worst with cooking on the actual weekends too, even after grocery shopping!

  • Reply Marie April 17, 2018 at 8:35 am

    It’s been so cold here as well. In fact, it was so cold this morning I had to wear my uggs. Uggs in April!! That should be against the law! Winter is just not leaving.

    This weekend I was stuck on the couch with the flu and I was sick of afternoon trash TV so I turned on Disney channel. Um… I think I’m now obsessed with Puppy Dog Pals and Vampirina. Hahahaha. Those shows are SO cute!
    Those Brussels sprouts give me allll the heart eyes! And Zoe is my spirit animal at Target! Haha!

    A 3 hour nap?!?! Tell me all your secrets. Looks like a super productive weekend!

  • Reply SMD April 19, 2018 at 3:07 pm

    I hate when I think I am rid of the candy and alas I am not.

  • Reply Alexandra April 20, 2018 at 9:39 am
