weekend shenanigans

Weekend Shenanigans

It’s time for my Weekend Shenanigans!!! I am going to call this weekend hella productive! Let’s just jump in, shall we?

Friday evening, Chris and I headed to the Pell City thrift store and scored a good haul. We grabbed some food on the way home and watched some reruns of Big Bang. That is the perfect Friday night for me.

Saturday I cleaned the house, cut the grass…all of the grass, and finished cataloging the games upstairs and the ones we had just got. Cutting our entire yard is a huge deal, I was so proud of myself for getting it all done in one swoop. We got ready and we were going to go to World of Beer…but we were both tired. All that work takes a lot out of you! Even the dogs were tired!

Instead we stayed in and watched the Ultra Music Festival live from Miami on the projector and got caught up on some of our shows.

Usher at UltraThat”s right folks…that is Ursher, baby!!! Certainly the highlight of the night for me 🙂 There was also a dude that played the sax for awhile that was really cool…

I enjoy tuning in for awhile each year, but I could never handle a whole weekend of that in the Miami heat. Too old!

Sunday morning I got some blog stuff done and pinned some shit because you know how Pinterest goes once you are signed in. Then I decided it was time. It was time to be honest and clean out my closet for real.

The rules I set up for myself? If I don’t love it right now, it comes out of the closet. If I really still liked it, and I just wish it would fit a little better...you know if I lost like 5 to 10 pounds…. it would go into a storage tote and be re-evaluated. If I wasn’t thrilled to own it? Donation pile.



I literally tried on every single thing that was hanging, unless it is something I wore in the last week. I got rid of…wait for it….45 tops. Forty-five. And 3 skirts.



Sure, it might not look that different in these pictures, but I had enough space that I was able to move my skirts that were on Chris’s top shelf down. Also, the hangers actually have space between them and I can see what I own.

I always have my closet organized by type of top (tank top, regular top, sweater) and then by color from lightest to darkest.

After all that organizing, it was time for lunch! We met up with Chris’s parents and headed to J Alexander’s. I ordered my usual when I am trying to be good, Thai Kai Salad. It was delicious as always.


After lunch, we walked around Bargain Hunt then headed to Target to get our grocery shopping done. I made a Pear and Gorgonzola Flat Bread for dinner.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Let’s bring it, Monday!

    HOORAY for getting all that done this weekend!! So productive! And hooray for a finally cleaned out closet — I swear that’s the best feeling in the world. I still have yet to go to J. Alexander’s. I need to get on it, because that salad looks awesome.

    YES for closet overhaul! In another month you should go through again to see what’s changed and maybe you’ll get rid of more!

    Great work on the closet! I did some purging this weekend. I love it. It will continue as I transition my clothes.

    Closet clean out is the best – I think your closet looked clean before but yay for getting more space!! So smart of you guys to project ultra music fest – it probably felt like you were there without having to worry about the crowds lol!! Hope you have a great Monday! xo, Biana – BlovedBoston

    I LOVE J. Alexander’s- that salad looks incredible! 🙂 Good job on the closet clean out… I’m always so envious when I see people with ACTUAL closet space, lol! Ours is to tiny it has forced us not to hang onto too much stuff we don’t love!

  • Reply Deborah March 30, 2015 at 10:02 am

    Whoa!! You were on the move!!! I felt the same way this past weekend. Like I just couldn’t sit still. I got so much done and felt amazing about it after. My closet is next! HUGE KUDOS to you for the lawn! My husband tackles that all on his own so I know it’s a huge job.

    Pear gorgonzola flat bread – mmmmmmmmmmmmmm. I hate that Emry is allergic to pear, because whenever he isn’t with us – I totally indulge!

    Also – Good for you mowing ALL the grass – kicking butt and taking names!!!!

    Usher – *heartbeat quickens* – so cute.

    So many great things in this post. 1. I also love Big Bang. Bazinga! I watch the re-runs all the time. 2. You have so many gorgeous clothes! Your closet is fabulous! Damn – 45 is a lot of tops, lol.

    I did a purge like that last year and it felt so good.

    I just recently learned that there’s a World of Beer in Baltimore and all your talk of it has put it on my list of places I will go this summer.

    Your closet looks great, awesome job gurlie! And yessss to Usher 😀

    When I first moved in, Mr. Scrooge had 2/3 of the closet and when I had to start buying dress up clothes, I told him his uniforms were getting banished to the man room closet. He had insisted on leaving them in the bedroom closet at first and I finally told him that unless he’s wearing them at least once a month, they were getting banished. He wears the same uniform every.single.week. BOYS..ugh. Now I have 1/2 and I’m considering taking over more on principle since he can reach the shelves and I can’t and he can put stuff up there…

  • Reply Laura @ Life with Lolo March 30, 2015 at 4:07 pm

    So jealous of your closet clean out. I need to do that so, so bad and I just can’t get myself to do it!

  • Reply Pamela March 30, 2015 at 4:20 pm

    OMG hello Ursher! 🙂 How does he just keep getting better with age?! That flatbread looks amazing! Yum! And yay for a closet clean out. I really need to do that… like last year haha!

    I organized my closet before and after I moved. I realized I had not gotten rid of enough stuff and I could still afford to get rid of more. Maybe I should’ve been more realistic!
    The Thai salad looks pretty delish but so does the cheesy flatbread.

    I’ve been doing a lot around my house and thankfully it is NOT yard work. LOL

  • Reply Dorrie @ Bear Den Plantation March 30, 2015 at 6:00 pm

    Woooo! Good job on getting your closet cleaned out (and cutting the grass- I HATE that!) The cheesy flatbread looks amazing. By the by, I got your button added!

  • Reply Tracy March 30, 2015 at 6:09 pm

    Amazing job on the closet purge! I organize my closet the same way. Only now I only have like 2 of each type, haha.

  • Reply Alanna @ Alanna and Co March 30, 2015 at 7:35 pm

    I need to reorganize my closet too!! I thought mine was looking good but then I just realized half my work clothes are waiting at the dry cleaners for me….

    BTW that flatbread is making me drool right now.

  • Reply Kerry March 30, 2015 at 7:39 pm

    That was a productive weekend. I organize my closet in a similar way. The pizza looks delish!

  • Reply Kay R. March 30, 2015 at 7:51 pm

    Umm good for you both on cutting the grass and on the closet purge. Seriously go you! And yes pinterest is the devil once logged in!

  • Reply alyssa March 30, 2015 at 8:23 pm

    WOW. Great job on the closet clean-out! That’s some serious work right there.

  • Reply ellesees March 31, 2015 at 7:27 am

    productive indeed! dang girl! your closet looks amazing. i need to do that this weekend.

  • Reply Jenn @ Business, Life & Design March 31, 2015 at 7:29 am

    Holy crap that’s a lot of clothes to get rid of! I was thinking about doing a purge, but 45 would be pretty much all my tops. 😛 I like the idea of laying everything out and trying it all on, though. I definitely hang onto things that are “sort of ok” and “flattering if I only sit this like this” and that’s silly.

  • Reply B @ The Sequin Notebook March 31, 2015 at 7:58 am

    I am totally inspired by your closet purge! It’s on my to-do list and I’ve been avoiding it for far too long. Also, that flatbread looks delish!

  • Reply Ralph Marion March 31, 2015 at 8:44 am

    I’ve always wanted to go to Ultra at least once in my life. I’m still a fan of EDM music and want to experience that before I get too old.

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis March 31, 2015 at 4:32 pm

    I really need to get my closet organize and purge old stuff. That salad looks yummy!!
