weekend shenanigans

Weekend Shenanigans

We have a heat index advisory today. Hey summer, I see you. More like feel you. Gross. I will be chilling indoors with my AC on full blast if anyone needs me! We did get a little outdoor play in this weekend though.

Friday, Chris and I had an impromptu lunch date at Taco Morro Loco. I have been wanting to try this place forever and ever and just never made it over there. I have been missing out on the best tacos in Birmingham. I kid you not, they were seriously sooooooo amazing!!!! Unfortunately, the service was slow as shit because they had a million to go orders, and we ended up having to take our food to go because Chris had a meeting and we waited almost an hour after our appetizer came out. But it was totally worth it. I am already thinking I need to go back again. I ordered a chorizo taco, a beef one and The Pastor which was pork with pineapples. I can’t tell you which was my favorite, because each one was so fresh and amazing.

It was stormy and nasty on Saturday morning, so we spent the morning playing indoors and enjoying homemade waffles.

After Zoe’s nap, her and I made an Aldi run and then headed to her first classmate’s birthday party! She had so much fun running around and seeing a few of her friends from school. The mom did an amazing job on party decor. It was Peppa Pig themed and seriously a Pinterest Perfect event. I am going to have to step my game up big time if we invite school friends to her next party. She came home with a pretty sweet bag of loot too. I am glad that the rain had cleared out just in time for all the kiddos to have fun. Even if it was so humid that I stay soaked pretty much the entire time I was standing out there. Making a mental note to never wear my hair down to an outdoor party again.

Chris spent his Saturday getting this awesome Beat Saber VR game to work on his computer. It is insane the things that he is able to do.

Saturday night, I made a plate of black bean nachos and ended up watching The Notebook since it was on tv. Chris came up about half way through and admitted he never did actually see it, so I made him watch it with me.

Sunday, Zoe and I headed to the grocery store pretty earlier. When she went down for her nap, I made some Italian Sausage for Chris and I for lunch and let it simmer in the skillet while I cleaned the bathrooms, did dishes, put a few loads of laundry in, and started getting some stuff together for our beach trip. Zoe had taken a pretty long nap, because I had gotten a lot done! When Zoe got up, she had a snack and then we went outside to blow bubbles and draw with sidewalk chalk. We took a few quick walks as well. Zoe got her first skinned knees and handled it like a pro.

Sunday night, we ate the rest of the sausage for dinner and knocked out a few more episodes of Blue Bloods. It is seriously such a good show!

I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend! Last week was so crazy, I am hoping this week will be a little less so. Linking up with Biana. Happy Monday!

    I’m so over the heat already, and it’s only June! That’s the worst when it takes your food forever to arrive, and you’re dealing with trying to get back to work for a meeting. At least the food was good though!

    I was going to text you if you didn’t post today – figured life was crazy but wanted to check in! It’s going to be 100 here towards the end of the week so bye I’ll be melting. I wish we could dress like kids. I mean how much cooler would we be if we could wear that one piece like Z?

    I am NOT looking forward to going back to Texas simply because of the heat. It is currently sunny & 64, real feel of 72, in Minnesota. It’s 81 already where I live in Texas… All it says for the “looking ahead” is “Hot Today” lol no thank you!

    Your homemade waffles looked delicious!! Sorry to hear about lunch taking so long, but the food did look really good – glad you’ll give it another go! I think playing outside with bubbles and chalk may be the best thing to do on a sunday night!! Have a great start to the week! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    Awww poor skinned knees! It’s a good thing she had her Mama there to help her through it!

    Sidewalk chalk and bubbles….the stuff of summer and tacos, lol. Well, tacos year round given but sound good right now. Blue Bloods is so good!

    I still dont understand 100 degree weather – its the worst. we have yearlong summer weather but it rarely ever hits 90! basically most of the year is 75-85 degree weather. I dont think ive ever even experience 100 degrees outside of the US and the last time I felt that I almost passed out. Stay cool friend!

    Tacos are soooo delicious. I love them soooooo much. Z looks like she had a great time at the party, and I’m already so sick of this heat. I HATE being hot and sweaty – it’s the worst.

    Chorizo taco?! MMMM. I only discovered chorizo after Jerry introduced me to it, but it’s soooo tasty.
    Oh man, Pinterest parties kill me. I don’t do that stuff AT ALL! lol

    I love seeing sidewalk chalk when I’m out and about.

  • Reply Missy @MySh!ttyKitchen June 25, 2018 at 5:12 pm

    Ugh this weather, I hear you! Sorry the food took so long, the tacos still sound great! Nachos sound great too! Sidewalk chalk is so cute as is Zoe!

    Yay for impromptu lunch dates! I need those waffles in my life, and yay Zoe for handling the skinned knees like a champ – not yay for the skinned knees of course <3

    All your food pictures are giving me life! Those tacos sound SO good and I freaking loooove waffles!!
    That light saber thing is probably the coolest thing ever!

    Yumm now I want tacos! It is Tuesday after all so maybe I can make that happen. Parties these days really do end up being amazing. I know some can be over the top, but for the most part, I love planning and getting decor together for the kids. We’re thinking about little nuggets third birthday and I realized I don’t have a lot of time left. Sierra Beautifully Candid
