weekend shenanigans

Weekend Shenanigans

And just like that another weekend has come and gone, and mid-October went with it! I woke up this morning to see it was 39 degrees outside. In Alabama. In October. Crazy talk, but I am loving it! In fact, I was loving the weather all weekend long with highs only in the upper 60’s to low 70’s. Perfection.Time for another edition of Weekend Shenanigans!

Friday evening I was exhausted. I came home and finished reading How Forever Feels and promptly went to bed. I don’t know why, but the week really just wears me out and I cant be bothered to go anywhere on Friday evenings!

Saturday morning we caught up on some of our shows, then headed to Blackwell’s for lunch. I got the Blackwell Burger with a blue cheese stuffed onion ring and swiss cheese on it. And I ordered an old favorite, the Well’s Banana Bread. You can never go wrong with Well’s!

From there, we grabbed some donuts from Heavenly Donuts to take over to my sister in laws house for the Alabama game!

Heavenly Donuts

I would like to point out that I had enough self control to not actually eat any of the donuts myself. If that isn’t willpower, I really don’t know what is. I had my cheat meal already so I was good.

Later that evening we headed to World of Beer for a little while. I was disappointed in theΒ Stone 24 Carrot Golden Ale. It was supposed to taste like carrot cake and there was no taste of it what so ever for me. It did have a “sweet” finish…but not carrot cake. I mean, it was a decent Belgium beer but not what you think it is going to taste like.

They did have my favorite fall shandy, Jack-o-Traveler!

Sunday was a day of Hulu, going to my nephew’s baseball game, grocery shopping and some food prep for the week.

Now we are back to reality! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. Happy Monday!

Linking up with Biana.

    I can’t believe it’s so cold down there!! We are freezing up here too. We had lots of fun watching the game, though T was nervous the whole way through (even though we were up the entire time!). Hope your week is off to a good start!

    Banana bread beer?! I have never heard of this before… I am intrigued!

  • Reply Marie October 19, 2015 at 10:12 am

    I totally have been staying home on Friday nights too, I’m way too tired at the end of the work week to do anything. Those donuts looks so good. I wouldn’t mind one right now.

And team that with a burger and I’m in heaven!! We’re finally on the same temps!!! Crazy but you get to pull out your cozy clothes!! πŸ˜‰ Hope your week gets off to a great start cutie pie!!

    I don’t like beer but that banana bread beer – I may have to try something like that!

  • Reply Deborah October 19, 2015 at 11:44 am

    I’m waiting for cooler temps here in Florida that probably will never come. Womp. But that cheat meal looks delish!

  • Reply Lindsay Latimer October 19, 2015 at 12:27 pm

    You go on your self-control, girl! I had none this weekend. Sigh. What about that Bama game?! So awesome! I hope you have a great Monday- even if we’re wearing real clothes and bras.

    So fun!! And I’m glad there’s someone else out there who likes the Banana Bread beer! Everyone else thinks it’s disgusting…fools. πŸ˜›

    Oh I am happy to hear that review about the carrot cake beer. The chick at total wine was talking it up so much and I was really debating getting it but think I can hold off now. I am very impressed by your will power considering I want to eat those donuts through the computer screen!

  • Reply Mattie October 19, 2015 at 12:46 pm

    Oh man…those donuts! YUM! I don’t think I could ever pass up a donut. They’re a weakness of mine.

  • Reply Biana @ Blovedboston October 19, 2015 at 12:52 pm

    I feel the same way on Friday’s I literally can’t wait to relax!! Your burger looked insanely delicious – I wish i had that for lunch today!! Happy Monday! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    I feel ya- Friday’s are hard. I hate making plans on Friday evenings because I really just wanna flop and usually call it a night fairly early. Working is too hard πŸ˜‰

  • Reply Laura @ Life with Lolo October 19, 2015 at 1:14 pm

    Mmmmmm, I’m going to have to see if I can find that banana bread beer over in my neck of the woods. Sounds so good! And I feel you on the Friday’s thing. All I want to do that night is crash, although this week watching my rival football team get their asses handed to them was pretty great. So going out to watch it was worth it!

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista October 19, 2015 at 1:31 pm

    Brrrr 39?! No thank you! That is waaaaay too cold for this girl! I’m the same way about Fridays, I honestly just want to relax on the couch with some takeout or grill food and Netflix. Is it bad that I’m totally craving that banana bread beer and some donuts? You have some awesome willpower, because those donuts looked amazing!

    a blue cheese stuffed onion ring?! I need that in my life.

  • Reply kristen October 19, 2015 at 2:42 pm

    i was supposed to do something on friday night but i was like nope. yeah, you go out and then you have the rest of the weekend to recover, but i don’t want to do anything on friday nights. i want to lay around and do none of the things.
    one day i am going to visit you and we are going to eat allllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll of the food.

  • Reply Kerry October 19, 2015 at 3:09 pm

    I am the same way on Friday I just need to relax and de-stress after the week. The Banana bread beer sounds delish!

  • Reply Michael October 19, 2015 at 3:19 pm

    Banana Bread Beer?!? How was that?!? I’ve never heard of it but I love me some banana bread.

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph October 19, 2015 at 3:31 pm

    No donuts? How? I always want a fancy donut.

  • Reply Sophia Rodriguez October 19, 2015 at 3:36 pm

    I woke up this morning and it was 57 here in Texas and it felt so nice! I’m super impressed with your willpower not to eat one of those donuts, I wouldn’t have been able to do that! Lol.

  • Reply Pamela @ A Little Glitter October 19, 2015 at 4:16 pm

    This cold weather is NOT cool. I had to break out our Winter clothes for the 33 degree temps this morning. WTF? Not a fan at all!

  • Reply Tracie October 19, 2015 at 5:36 pm

    How did you resist a donut?! I had a pumpkin one for breakfast saturday and it was delish! That burger also looks delish! I need to figure out how to cook onion rings at home without my house smelling like a grease pit so I can make one like that.

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis October 19, 2015 at 5:45 pm

    39 sounds too cold for Fall (although what would i know lol) but at least you got some nice weather on the weekend. I hardly ever eat burgers but blue cheese would probably be a favorite topping to add and bacon of course. Good to know about the carrot beer. I won’t bother to try it out.

  • Reply Amanda October 19, 2015 at 9:51 pm

    I saw that banana bread beer in Bed Bath and Beyond on Saturday and I thought of you! lol πŸ™‚
