Weekend Shenanigans

Another weekend has come and gone and another weekend passed me by without getting all the things done that I wanted to accomplish. Isn’t that always the way?

Friday for lunch, Laura and I checked out Shiki over in Homewood. We basically wanted to order one of everything off the menu and will be back soon, I am certain!

Saturday after the usual cleaning, I headed over to Salon 2000 to get a much needed cut and color. Several inches came off my hair and I went several shades darker. My hair looks so much healthier now!!!

After I came home, Chris and I did some planning on a few things and then we were off to Red Robin to have a quick drink and dinner. We tried to go to Crazy Horse first but they were super packed and we couldn’t even find parking anywhere. I am really disappointed that the Red Robin in Trussville stopped carrying craft beer. I ordered a sangria in protest, and to be honest…it wasn’t all that either. But the food was good, so I will give them that.

Sunday was spent meal planning, grocery shopping, food prepping and TV watching! I made Greek quinoa salad and veggie soup for lunches, paleo banana bread for breakfasts and last night we had paleo buffalo chicken pasta for dinner using spaghetti squash. It was delicious!!!


There was also some of this…


I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! Linking up with Biana.

    I wish I was on the meal planning bandwagon. I’ve been watching what I eat but I’ve been wanting to experiment with healthier meal ideas and I’m just so turned off. Give me all the bacon!! lol

    Your hair is SO DANG CUTE. And so is your leather jacket. That restaurant looks soo amazing, but so does that spaghetti squash! I totally need to add that to my grocery list for tonight…I’ve only been meaning to buy some for months!

    I love your new hair color and cut! I think the darker shade looks so pretty on you! That buffalo chicken pasta sounds so delicious! We’ve been looking for some good spaghetti squash recipes, and this sounds right up our alley!

    Okay okay- I know everyone else said it, but seriously, your hair looks GREAT! 🙂 Love it!! I’m having quinoa salad for lunches this week too but need to try your greek variation on it next time 🙂

  • Reply Jenna February 22, 2016 at 2:30 pm

    Oh, I love me some spaghetti squash. I typically have one hanging around the house, and then I go out and grab another one at Publix as soon as I eat it. Now that cutting into those suckers isn’t such a big deal, I eat it all the time, especially in the colder months.

  • Reply Lauren @ Oh Hey! I Like That! February 22, 2016 at 3:26 pm

    Ohhhh the onion ring tower at Red Robin is AMAZING!

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph February 22, 2016 at 3:37 pm

    It is always so hard to choose when there are so many amazing things on the menu. I always love Red Robin as well but I think sushi is my fav over burgers.

    Your hair is so cute!
