Weekend Shenanigans

I think most kids are going back to school around here this week, if they haven’t already. I guess that means that the summer commute is over and I must resume to leaving a lot earlier than I do now!

Friday evening Chris and I ran by Publix and picked up some steaks and took them to his parents house for dinner. His dad is an excellent grill master 🙂 It had been so long since we had some steaks.

Saturday morning I cut our side yard and worked on the landscaping a little, cleaned the house and then we decided it was time for lunch! We ended up at Mugshots in Uptown. I think I am turning in to a burger snob for sure. Most people love Mugshots, and I used to like it as well but I am going to be honest…it really just wasn’t that good. I mean the burger was ok. I got the Walker that had blue cheese crumbles, blue cheese dressing, lettuce and purple onions on it, but it wasn’t amazing. The fries were rather terrible and I only ate about 1/2 of them, only because I was starving. They do have really good sweet buns though. The only saving grace of the burger, really.

After Mugshots, we met up with some of our friends at World of Beer, of course! I really wanted another Blue Pants Candy Bar Pinstripe, but they had already blown that keg. Drats!!! So I decided to try a Terrapin Liquid Bliss instead.

Don’t get me wrong, this beer was good! It had a nice chocolate after taste to it and it went down smooth. But it was no Candy Bar Pinstripe. I am going to be on a quest to find another Pinstripe for sure!

I also had an Woodchuck Oopsy Daisy and WOB now has Sprecher Root Beer on draft all the time, so I had one of those too. It was hot as balls outside, and that root beer was so refreshing! It quite literally felt like this…

We also hit the 100 club with our loyalty points! Life goals people, life goals.


Saturday evening we grabbed some Moe’s BBQ to take home and watch Hart of Dixie. I also started a new book, Before We Were Strangers.

Sunday morning I was up early and headed to the store to beat the tax free weekend crowd. You wouldn’t believe how many people had the same idea. It was crowded! The rest of the day was spent meal prepping and laying on the couch watching more Hart of Dixie! We are already half way through season 3!

This month is already flying by, today is the 10th!! I am not even sure how that is possible? I have a feeling that this week is going to be a busy one, so let’s get this Monday going! I hope everyone has a fabulous week!

    Sprecher on draft! Oh hell yes!! I can’t wait to be able to meet up with you guys again at WOB !! Also, it did feel like the third realm of hell outside this weekend — I have no idea how you mowed the lawn and didn’t die.

    Your weekend posts legit always make me hungry.

    Your schools start early too and commuting the first two weeks of school always blows. After that you get use to it and the people have their routines down.

    I’m so sorry you just had a so-so burger and a so-so beer! I hate that, when you’re so looking forward to it and then it’s just OK! But I’ll bet that yummy steak on Friday made up for it! Now I’m hungry and it’s not quite lunchtime yet but a big slab of steak sounds so stinking good with maybe some potatoes ha ha. I hope your Monday is off to terrific start, I am praying that it cools down for you, and I hope everything goes great this week! 🙂

    I have only been to World of Beer a few times but every time I have gone I have enjoyed their beer!

    Yay for Hart of Dixie, so sad that cute show is done! But booo for a so-so burger and fries, it looked delish though!

    Cheers to a fabulous week gurlie <3

    Wooo! Congrats on 100 points girl!! I just put all the beers you mentioned in my phone to try to find around here. I’ve been craving some new ones!!

  • Reply Sarah August 10, 2015 at 12:48 pm

    I’m really sad that your burger and fries were disappointing because they look scrumptious. Also, two thumbs up for enjoying good beer!!

    meh burgers make me mad. i hardly eat them so when i do, i fully expect a freaking party in my mouth and when it’s a disappointment, i rage so hard. the pic makes your burger/fries so yummy 🙁

    I think bad fries can really ruin a burger meal for me, sorry that happened to you. I can’t believe it’s already the 10th this month is FLYING already! Have a fab Monday!

    You and all these awesome sounding beers! I’m so jealous. I wish we had a World of Beers here!

    I wore a maxi to work today, so it pretty much feels like pajamas. But I did have to wear a bra. #struggles
    Woohoo on reaching the 100 club! And you just made me realize that I’m craving BBQ. And Hart of Dixie.

    Few things annoy me more than going out to eat, paying for food I could have made at home, and having said food suck ass. It’s a big ass waste. That picture is deceiving, though, because it looks quite good.

  • Reply Joey August 10, 2015 at 2:38 pm

    I think my tastes have changed because I’m really not in love with burgers like I used to be! We had a “Not Your Father’s Root Beer” a few weeks ago and OMG it was freaking delicious. You should try it sometime! <3

  • Reply Lindsay Latimer August 10, 2015 at 3:22 pm

    Your beer posts always make me crave it! I’ve tried one of the root beer beers and I really liked it- I mean I was shocked how much it tasted like the real thing! Happy Monday!

    I hate when school starts and I need to up my morning commute game again.

  • Reply Amanda August 10, 2015 at 4:50 pm

    I love me some bleu cheese! There’s this amazing salad a place by our place has with crumbles on it and a vinaigrette dressing… SO GOOD!

  • Reply kristen August 10, 2015 at 4:56 pm

    i know the burger wasn’t good, but dang it LOOKS so good. i want all the food.

    A burger sounds awesome right now. We went to a BBQ yesterday and my friend (not to complain too much about free food but…) has a slightly different preference for her burgers than I do. As in I like medium rare and she likes hockey pucks. 😛 I looked up the beers after our last conversation about them and I couldn’t find them in DE. 🙁 I will have to remain uncultured.

    Didn’t even know WOB has a loyalty club! I’ll have to sign up next time Im there.

  • Reply Kerry August 10, 2015 at 10:41 pm

    Bummer the burger wasn’t that great. You are serious WOB goers to get into that club. Awesome.

  • Reply Robin August 11, 2015 at 8:51 am

    I saw that Terrapin somewhere and wanted to try it, but it was only in a six-pack and I didn’t want to buy more than one without knowing if I would like it. Maybe I will give it a chance. Have you tried Dragon’s Milk? It has a vanilla and woods-y tone.

  • Reply Katie @Running With Wine August 11, 2015 at 10:29 am

    I love Moe’s!!! Its one of my favorite BBQs places. I was home this weekend and not I’m regretting my decision to have Nothing But Noodles instead of Moes 🙁
