Weekend Shenanigans

Another weekend has come and gone. I can not believe it is the middle of July?!

Friday – Work has been crazy this past week since I was gone for a few days. I am super behind and worked really late on Friday to try to catch up some. After I left work, I went and met Chris at his boss’s lake house. We watched the sunset over the lake and chatted for awhile, then Chris ordered Fox’s pizza to pick up on the way home. I love that Fox’s pizza is actually from the Pittsburgh area. Makes me feel a little “at home.”

Saturday – I got some stuff done around the house Saturday morning, then Chris and I headed to World of Beer to meet up with Laura! Her husband was out of town, so we adopted her for the day. I am so glad that I met Laura. Her and her husband are so much fun to hang out with. She shares in my love for beer, cheeseburgers, foul language and nail polish. I don’t really know what more you can ask for from a friend?!

I ordered a Straight to Ale Watermelon Wheat to start off with. It tasted NOTHING like watermelon which was rather disappointing. Even so, it came it a super cute class. I really wish I would have someone made the glass come home with me!


Laura and I have been talking about ordering a hard root beer float from there ALL WEEK. We were so excited to finally order one, but unfortunately, they were out of hard root beer. Like seriously?!?! What the hell??? Either way, we went ahead and ordered a regular float. It was freaking delicious.



Had to take a German sign to send to my German friends. I knew they appreciated it with the game and all this weekend!20140713-222218-80538453.jpg

Of course, since we were out and it was Saturday, Jack Brown’s Beer and Burgers was not to be missed! I ordered the Danny Larusso again because it is just so damn good! Cream cheese and jalapeno jelly. Yum yum.

20140713-222220-80540414.jpgSunday – Chris and I finished the second season of The Mindy Project, and now I am not quite sure what to do with my life?! That show is awesome!!! We are also almost done with the first season of The Good Wife. Love it too! Do any of you watch those?

I meal planned, grocery shopped, and worked a little bit because apparently the work will never end. The rest of Sunday looked like this:

I hope everyone had a great weekend! What did you do?

    I remember the summer my sister made me binge watch The Good Wife, I was hooked until last season and then I just gave it up. I’m not much of a TV watcher.

    The mug was too cute, disappointing it wasn’t more watermelon flavored. 🙁 I loved the Good Wife. Sounds like a great weekend!

    OLIVIA STOP GROWING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I’ve watched Mindy and the Good wife, I’m SO behind though!

    Klay and I are doing WOB (after the “family aquarium visit”) NEXT Saturday. Yes, we plan on using the aquarium as an excuse. It’s a GOOD EXCUSE!

    Hard Rootbeer Floats? YES PLEASE! I heard that you can make it with Regular Root Beer, Vanilla Vodka and Vanilla Ice cream. Just saying.. in case they are out of hard root beer again.. 🙂

    Happy Monday!

    Oh my goodness, your kitty is too cute!! Sounds like you had a fun weekend! I have never been to Jack Brown’s Burgers and Beer, but I guess I need to. Looks delicious!

  • Reply Kate July 14, 2014 at 8:05 pm

    I would have been so bummed there wasn’t a hint of that watermelon flavor in the beer too!

  • Reply Amanda July 14, 2014 at 10:11 pm

    A hard root beer float?! I’d be pissed they were out, too! Still though… even a regular one sounds delicious right about now!

  • Reply Laura July 14, 2014 at 11:32 pm

    Awww — had so much fun with y’all too! I loved being adopted by awesomness. I’m still pissed about that hard root beer float, BUT that cherry cola kind of made up for it. Plus lying waiters about watermelon beer suck. I don’t even know why we were surprised when he said he was out of hard root beer. Thank the Jesus for the cheeseburger…we can go, you know, whenever. We can buy nail polish too.

    I could definitely be part of your crew with the nail polish, foul mouths, beer and burgers….pretty much hit all 4 of those major groups this weekend! She is so dang pretty and still petite!

  • Reply Liz @ Fitness Blondie July 15, 2014 at 3:19 pm

    Man I love a good burger so much. That picture had me drooling on Instagram this weekend. I can’t believe World of Beer was out of rootbeer and on a Saturday? That is crazy. Looks like such a fun weekend. I always love your weekend adventures 🙂
