Birmingham, weekend shenanigans

Weekend Shenanigans

Another weekend has quickly come and gone!

Friday – It started out like any other Friday. A trip to Starbucks on my way to the office, lunch with Courtney…and then it started. The freezing rain. I had heard of reports further north of  the city but they kept saying the temperature was rising and acting like there wasn’t going to be a problem. Chris called me around 2:30 pm and told me that if I wanted to make it home at all I needed to leave RIGHT NOW! Yes sir!

He was so right!!! The minute I turned down the road to our neighborhood, it was super slick. By the time I got to the entrance for our neighborhood, they were shutting the road down!


I am so thankful that I made it home safely and didn’t get trapped anywhere! That evening we stayed in (obviously) and kept checking to see if it would change over to snow so we could go play. Never did. Sigh.

Saturday – We headed to lunch at Jack Brown’s to prep for brewfest! I ordered the Danny Laruso, a water and I totally had a fried oreo. Ain’t no shame in my drinking game!

Jack_BrownsAfter lunch, we met up with our friends for Wild South Brewfest! We had a great time, lot’s of different breweries out there. My favorites for the day were the Triple Belgium from Cheaha Brewing, The Rye Saison from Back Forty and the Belgium Red Rye from Black Warrior.



After the Brewfest was over, it was time for dinner. We headed to World of Beer, of course!!! We had some friends in town from Huntsville that have never been. When they were describing where to go they said somewhere cozy with comfort food and a great beer selection. Sounds like WOB to me?! The place ended up packed out before we left. There must have been a bar crawl going on, there were a ton of people that showed up looking like golfers and I even saw the penguin from Happy Gilmore.


Sunday – There was a possibility of winter weather for today, so Sunday morning I headed to the grocery store early to avoid the crowds. When I got home, Chris had a friend over so I unloaded the groceries and cleaned the house while they were down stairs.

We bought a friend’s treadmill and decided to go pick it up. It was such a debacle trying to get it out of their house! We had to take a door off it’s frame and everything!! We finally went to load it in my car and it didn’t fit. *head slap* Soooooo my sister came to the rescue later in the evening with her huge ass truck!

This is my running view for now. We are in no rush to take all the doors out in our house to get it upstairs! Week 1 Day 1 of C25K is done!


We also go some gaming in this weekend!


I updated my Twitter cover page

    The Magic City Bloggers header looks awesome.

    I love that first beer glass. I’d be tempted to steal it and bring it home.

    Looks like it was a super fun weekend.

    What a fun weekend! I had a party to go to on Saturday night and we almost didn’t make it out of our community just because the roads were so bad.

    thank goodness you got home alright, that is scary! and i really really really want a treadmill, it would make working out so much easier!! i am so jealous 🙁 and now i really want a fried oreo, never had one!

  • Reply Teh Megan February 23, 2015 at 10:23 am

    Fried oreos are the shiznit. If I didn’t have such guilt (thanks Catholicism) about calories, I’d eat ALL THE FRIED OREOS EVARRRR. MMMMMMMMMM, delicious.
    I am strongly considering downloading that weather app, but I’m afraid it will reject me since Charleston has such boring weather.

  • Reply Joey February 23, 2015 at 10:41 am

    YAY for the treadmill!! We had to take the doors off the hinges to get my desk in the house (whoops haha)! So Much winter weather by you!!!!

  • Reply Pamela @ A Little Glitter February 23, 2015 at 10:48 am

    What a fun weekend! Your gaming set up looks legit! I’m jealous!

  • Reply Nadine February 23, 2015 at 10:50 am

    Ughhhhh you just reminded me that I really should try running again. I really, truly hate it. But I hate having something that I feel I can’t do. Keep us updated with how the C25k goes, I’ve always thought about trying it, but man, I just hate running!

  • Reply Jenn @ Business, Life & Design February 23, 2015 at 11:04 am

    I want a treadmill! I mean, I’m lucky to have access to one at work or at my parents, but I would really like to exercise first thing in the morning and the only way that’s happening is if I don’t have to leave the house. One day…

  • Reply Julia February 23, 2015 at 11:17 am

    Oh wow so glad you got home safe! I always hated driving in ice when we lived in OK, so scary for this FL girl! Looks like a wonderful weekend in spite of the weather! Fried oreos are SO good, we had some at the fair and then Adam figured out how to make them, so now he can make them at home which is very very dangerous.

    YES to all the fried oreos and beeeeeeers. YUUUUUM!!! Also, damn dedication to get that treadmill in the house — prep time for our Rumpshaker!!

    That header is amazing!!!

    I’m so jealous of your weekend. All that beer! And great purchase with the treadmill. Just as soon as I buy new sneakers, I’ll be hopping back on mine. I did a C25K last year and although I still hate running, I’m proud that I did it. It’s such a nice change of pace from the regular workouts.

  • Reply Laura @ Life with Lolo February 23, 2015 at 1:58 pm

    Ahhhhh I love brewfests!! So jealous you got to go to one this weekend!

  • Reply Tracy February 23, 2015 at 3:36 pm

    Your Saturday sounds amazing, like I can’t even with all the great beer.
    YAY I’m so glad you finally got the treadmill!!! Great job kicking day 1’s ass!

  • Reply Tracie February 23, 2015 at 4:06 pm

    hahaha we have the smallest at home gym ever, so my elliptical view is a nice beige wall. Whatevs! Gotta get my cardio in 🙂

  • Reply Erin LFF February 23, 2015 at 4:33 pm

    Hahaa, I had to laugh at the treadmill not fitting in your car. Once Jared and I went to Ikea planning on getting just a couple smaller things and ended up buying 2 pieces of furniture while we were there… COMPLETELY forgetting that there was no way we’d fit them in our car. Luckily I had a friend not too far away that helped us out, but still- we felt so dumb!

  • Reply Pamela @ Sequins & Sea Breezes February 23, 2015 at 9:43 pm

    OMG that freezing rain is so crazy! I’m glad you made it home safe, that’s so scary! All of those beers so sound good too!

  • Reply Kay R. February 23, 2015 at 10:39 pm

    What a great weekend! Ive never had fried oreos but that looks yummy!

  • Reply Kerry February 24, 2015 at 5:48 am

    That is a serious gamer haven! Glad you were able to get the treadmill in finally. Fried Oreo, yum!

  • Reply Duckie February 24, 2015 at 6:33 am

    That seems like such a workout to get something to help you workout. Lol. And holy shit your game room is definitely legend – wait for it – dary.

  • Reply ellesees February 24, 2015 at 8:57 am

    i’d say that’s a pretty good weekend, despite the nasty weather. atl is getting that today. cold rain is the worst!

  • Reply Ralph Marion February 24, 2015 at 9:15 am

    I figured that there wasn’t gonna be much with the weather happening. Tomorrow might be a different story.

  • Reply Amanda March 1, 2015 at 11:40 am

    I wish we had a treadmill at home. We have a gym at our complex but I honestly feel like if it was right in our living room I would be more likely to use it, as sad and lazy as that makes me sound, lol
