Weekend Shenanigans

What is it about a three day weekend that will scramble your brain so much on what day it is??? It was wonderful and glorious to have that extra day off. I just wish I would have been more productive with my time! I meant to clear out our guest room and paint it this weekend. None of that happened. We did have some fun though!

I kicked off the weekend Friday with trying out a new to me restaurant, Abhi. I met two of my friends over there that I hadn’t seen in awhile and we had some delicious eats! I ordered a side salad, miso soup and the Sexy Lady Roll (spicy tuna with crab.) They both ordered some kind of spicy noodle bowl that came out in these super cute tin pots.  C was so sweet and brought R and I bundt cakes since we both had August birthdays. It was great catching up, and I always leave a lunch with them feeling like my soul was fed in some way.

Saturday morning, Zoe and I went out to Michael’s to pick up some fall craft supplies. We also stopped by Sephora so that I could take advantage of the VIB sale and get my moisturizer and make up remover. I ended up picking up a skin care kit to try instead of what I went in there for. I used it Sunday and had two different people tell me that I looked 25. Sooooo the new skin care is definitely a keeper!!!! We also went to Publix to get some game day snacks, Zoe approved because Publix keeps her happy in cookies.

When we got home, we attempted nap time with no success. We gave up, and headed to Chris’s parents house to catch the Auburn game with them. Then we came home for the Bama game. No naps means a passed out Zoe on the way home.

Sunday morning, Zoe and I did our weekly grocery shopping at Target and picked up some  Moe’s BBQ for us to eat on over the next two days. When we got home, we again tried for a nap with no success. We decided to hear out to Best Buy and Bargain Hunt instead. When we got home we had some color time and played with bubbles outside. Two days without a nap was starting to take a toll on all of us. Someone was being such a toddler!

Monday morning, we had scheduled a play date with one of our daycare friends. We decided since neither of our kiddos sleep in, we would meet up early at Chick Fil A for breakfast, and then head to the park before it got too hot. This was actually Zoe’s first time at the park, and she had a BLAST!!! Now that it is **hopefully**  going to start cooling down some, Chris and I should be able to take her more. She had so much fun running around with her friend. They live close by the day care, and hopefully that is the area that we will be moving to soon…so clearly more of these play dates are going to need to happen!

Zoe had worn herself out, so when we got  home we had lunch and she finally went down for a nap! While she was napping, my sister came over with my nephews and we all played Mario Kart and waited for Zoe to get up. After they left, we had some bubble time and settled in for the night.

I was running behind this morning and didn’t have time to get breakfast together for myself. I stopped by Starbucks and grabbed an egg white and turkey bacon sandwich and tried out a weight watcher friendly PSL. For 3 points you order an Americano with 4 pumps of sugar free cinnamon dolce syrup and 1 pump of pumpkin spice syrup. A regular non-fat grande PSL with run you 16 points. Yeah, no thanks. This was actually pretty tasty and I would definitely get it again.

I hope you all enjoyed your long weekend! Linking up with Biana.

    That cake looks delicious. I think we need to have a discussion with Zoe and tell her that she’ll regret not taking those naps one day. LOL! Maybe she’s afraid she’ll miss all the fun?! Thanks for the heads up on the lower-cal PSL! I’m not a huge fan but am always looking for a fall drink – that might be the one for me. Here’s to a good Tuesday!

    Awww, she looks like she’s having so much fun in the swing! Hooray for play dates! And Chick-fil-a! That sushi looks super good – I’ll have to make my way over there to try that place out!

    Sometimes it’s okay to not be productive and just have fun!! I purchased a few things from the Sephora sale and it already arrived – winning!! I also had sushi this weekend and will be having it again every weekend for the forseeable future since I missed it so much LOL!! Enjoy your short week! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    Ooh that bundt cake looks really yummy. How kind of your friend! I’m glad that Zoe took a nap yesterday, but man, two days in a row without one? You’d think she’d just be exhausted! LOL And you too. 😉 I loved my three day weekend, but it went by way too quick and I didn’t get as much blogging done as I’d hoped. I did get to see a few different friends throughout the weekend though (and one I haven’t seen in awhile) so that was really nice.

    I’m always intrigued by the Starbucks hacks that saves so many calories & less sugar.
    Zoe looks so tiny in that swing! Hopefully you will get to take advantage of park days when it cools down.
    Bundt cakes… those little things are the BEST!

    So much to love and Pumpkin Anericano here I come! Poor Zoe, oh the no nap days threw me for a loop! Glad she got tuckered out at the park and that she loved it! Dang it, I totally spaced the Sephora Sale!

    What is this skin care kit that makes you look 25?! Ugh I hope the naps return soon. And I need to find a place here with a sexy lady roll!

    The food at Abhi looks delicious especially the sushi roll you ordered. Now I’m craving sushi so that’s probably going to be lunch tomorrow. Zoe looks adorable in her sunglasses even if sweet girl missed her naps. Hope she caught up on sleep and slept through the night; Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

    That bundt cake reminded me that I have a coupon for Nothing Bundt Cake! Thanks! LOL. Yay for fun play dates with friends! Hopefully it starts cooling down for y’all soon. I am so ready for cooler weather… so October/November haha.

    girl, my last run-in with PSL was disastrous! i wonder if this drink would be any different (ie. *not* tasting like someone shat in my cup)? LOL

    Z looks so cute in her fashionable sunglasses.

    That sushi looks so yummy!! And I’m still trying to figure out what day it is- I love mondays off but man it messes you up for the week lol.

  • Reply kristen September 5, 2018 at 2:16 pm

    i don’t drink coffee but that’s awesome you figured out a way to get a WW friendly PSL. why the heck not. Sexy Lady = fantastic name for sushi. looks delish!

  • Reply Carly September 5, 2018 at 2:51 pm

    Ohh yay for new skin care! I’m running low on my moisturizer and am kind of wanting to try something new! It sounds like you guys had such a fun weekend– getting out before it gets too hot is a must– hoping some cooler temps are around the corner- I would be happy with low 80s, lol. The difference in points for the Starbucks drink is crazy– but so awesome that you found one for less points.

    I love that you found a PSL dupe. I still haven’t had one yet. I need to get on that. Yes to looking 25. That is amazing. I need some new skin care products. I am sooo happy that football is back!!!

  • Reply Audrey September 6, 2018 at 10:45 am

    It sounds like you had a fun weekend! Your sushi pictures ALWAYS make me crave a California roll… (I don’t eat raw fish so my selection is limited.) I’m glad Zoe finally graced you with a nap on Monday 🙂 Your park playdate sounded so fun!!
