Weekend Shenanigans

Hello, Monday.

For whatever reason, last week was so long for me. When I left work Friday night, I was ready to put the week behind me so I came home and cleaned the entire house to get a fresh start for the weekend.

Saturday, I headed out early to meet up with my mom for some shopping! It has been far too long since her and I had a girls day! We met up at Sephora so I could pick up some foundation. Why do I always need the basic necessities when the good coupons roll around, eating up my make up budget? *insert sad face*

We checked out a few stores at The Summit then headed to Ashley Mac’s for lunch! Ashley Mac’s is this cute local girly restaurant that has the BEST chicken salad and sour cream biscuits!! When I worked in Cahaba Heights, I frequented this place on the regular. I always get the same thing, half a chicken salad sandwich on croissant with a side baby blue salad and a sour cream biscuit. (The tiny biscuit is hiding behind my salad between the sandwich and the dressing.)

After that, we headed to Nordstrom Rack and TJ Maxx. Norstrom Rack had so many cute things this time! And shoes for days!!! It was then time for me to head home. I couldn’t believe how fast the day had gone by. Why don’t work days go by that quickly?

Sunday morning I had gotten up to do some blog things, but after hearing that the weather may get bad later…I got the meal planning and grocery shopping done super early. The rest of the day was spent doing things like this…

Last night we decided to watch a movie,ย We’re the Millers. Have you seen it? I just love Jennifer Anniston and the movie had its funny parts. Luckily, the weather never got severeย here and we even saw some sunshine for the first time in days!!!

In other news, I was at Target yesterday shortly after they opened and I didn’t even think about the Lily collection premiering. Does that make me a bad blogger? Meh…

I got picked for a Voxbox for the first time in like a year, so I am super excited about that!!! It is supposed to be a Covergirl one and I just love playing with new make up!

Has anyone tried the Rimmel setting powder? Just wondering…

Linking up with Biana. I hope everyone has a great week!

    Sounds like a fun weekend and I hear you on the days of the weekends always going by way too fast!!! I haven’t been to Nordstrom Rack in a while and clearly I need to see what’s there since you said shoes for days and yay for getting picked for a vox box can’t wait to see what you get! Happy Monday! xo, Biana – BlovedBoston

    Uhm the rimmel setting powder (stay matte) is amazing. And only a couple bucks. Only powder I’ve used for the last several years. I didn’t care about the lilly stuff either and avoided target like the plague yesterday. Even just reading the tweets about it gave me anxiety! Getting a good clean on in the house definitely sets you up for a good weekend, huh?

    Mom days are the best. I need to get to this Ashley Mac’s place — because it sounds awesome– I mean, any and all biscuits are delicious. I really wanted to go to Nordstrom rack this weekend, but I fell asleep on the couch instead. Oops. ๐Ÿ™‚

    do nothing/relaxing weekends are the best. your pup has it right ๐Ÿ˜€

    kayla spent the night at her grandmother’s place on saturday night so after dinner, instead of taking advantage of it and heading out for the night, we rushed home and enjoyed the quiet! LOL.

    Shoes for daysssss YES! Sounds like a great shopping weekend, and I bypassed the Lilly craziness too yesterday. There was definitely some cute stuff, but not worth fighting all the crazies ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Reply Julia @ Grace Makes New April 20, 2015 at 10:01 am

    Ha, I totally spaced on the Lilly sale too but I wasn’t ever really that into it. It’s cute stuff but it’s not worth going crazy over plus no money in the budget for such things anyway! That salad looks SO good, I love cute girly lunch places! Looks like a lovely, relaxing weekend!

  • Reply Bri @ My Life As April 20, 2015 at 10:07 am

    I love We Are The Millers. It’s such a funny movie. I miss playing Mario!

    Aw puppy face…. And I’m glad the weather didn’t get too crazy by you! —— also: I’m not a fan of Rimmel. It makes my skin do weird things.

    You always have the best food pics! That salad looks delicious! I love We are the Millers! I only watched it for the first time last week.

    My weekend was mostly catching up on design projects, but the parts of it that were free were very similar to yours. Family time with Ryan and the dog, video games, and shopping with my mom! (which hasn’t happened in years!) Here’s hoping for a better week than last one.

  • Reply kristen April 20, 2015 at 11:33 am

    hmm rimmel setting powder? is that the stay matte pressed powder? if so i freaking LOVE that stuff like it’s in my holy grail products and i literally only have 2 things in that list. i don’t know anyone who doesn’t love it ๐Ÿ™‚ and yes seriously why do the weekend days go by so fast and the weekdays never do?

  • Reply Rebecca Jo April 20, 2015 at 11:49 am

    Don’t feel bad, I was at Target & didn’t even go NEAR the Lilly-crazed-women!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Reply Laura @ Life with Lolo April 20, 2015 at 2:55 pm

    I love shopping days with my mom too! I could probably do it every single weekend. Yay for getting a VoxBox – I’m so behind on my last one that it expires today and I have to get all the promo stuff done in like the next 10 hours. Eeeeek! shows how much I liked *cough* the product. Makeup should be a fun one though!

  • Reply Pamela April 20, 2015 at 4:45 pm

    OMG that chicken salad sandwich looks absolutely amazing! YUM! I totally play Mario on rainy weekend days… I love it! Haha! And I really want to see We Are The Millers. Glad to hear you liked it!!

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph April 20, 2015 at 4:46 pm

    I used to have Rimmel powder, not sure which one, but it sounds like that one? I liked it.

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis April 20, 2015 at 4:49 pm

    Sounds like a fun girls day with your mom and the salad looks delish! I didn’t go to mess at target either and really don’t understand the hype.

  • Reply Mia @ MakeMeUpMia April 20, 2015 at 4:59 pm

    Ha! Yes.. I hate when I get a good Sephora coupon and I *need something! Buying a Clarisonic replacement head is nowhere near as fun as splurging on a palette or something. Do you mean the Rimmel Stay Matter powder? If that is what you mean, it’s my holy grail. Awesome powder for under $5. Also, if you’re a bad blogger so am I… I woke up yesterday to all the Lilly pics, I didn’t even know it came out yesterday.

    My favorite part of We Are the Millers was the bloopers at the end when they played the Friends theme.

  • Reply Kerry April 20, 2015 at 7:56 pm

    Always nice to spend some girl time out and about. The salad looks so good. Being able to relax inside is always nice, and so relaxing.

  • Reply Lindsay Latimer April 20, 2015 at 7:57 pm

    That salad looks amazing. We just watched We’re the Millers last weekend and it was cute! I liked it. Girl I’m surprised you didn’t get taken out when you went into Target… heard it was nuts. Can’t wait to see what’s in your Voxbox! I’ve never tried the Rimmel setting powder, but now I’m intrigued!

  • Reply alyssa April 20, 2015 at 8:58 pm

    Seems like last week was a particularly bad one for a lot of people, myself included. Sounds like a pretty good weekend to take the edge off! Hope this week is so much better ๐Ÿ™‚

    i need to hit up a nordstrom rack. the one by my house has bad parking but they have such good stuff!

  • Reply Ralph Marion April 21, 2015 at 8:56 am

    Whitney was just talking about the whole Target stuff on Sunday. She didn’t understand the hype about it.

  • Reply Marie April 21, 2015 at 9:48 am

    I thought We are the Millers was soo funny!! I just love Jennifer Aniston.

  • Reply Dorrie @ Bear Den Plantation April 21, 2015 at 9:54 am

    Love We’re the Millers- my favorite of the whole movie was at the end when the Friends theme came on and Jennifer Aniston started crying! I teared up, I’m not gonna lie!

    That food looks delish! And your puppy is so cute!

    I’ve def been playing Mario brothers recently too! I just filled out the quiz for a new voxbox. Hope I get picked!

    We’re the Millers! ha! That was so funny. That salad and chicken biscuit looks amazing!

  • Reply Lindsay T. April 21, 2015 at 10:50 pm

    We’re The Millers came up on one of my recommended lists on Netflix or HBO go or somewhere and I was like, what is this!? I’m going to check it out!

    I have yet to meet a Rimmel product I didn’t like!
