Weekend Shenanigans

May sure came quickly and it just seems to be flying right by. I mean, how is it May 9th already?! And more importantly, how is it Monday??

For whatever reason, last week was exhausting. Friday evening we settled in for some TV and retired rather early.

Saturday morning I finished the book I was reading, cleaned the house, kick some Wooly Yoshi butt on the Wii U and then we headed downtown to grab a late lunch at Fuego. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day…well entire weekend…here in Birmingham. Just look at the sky!!!



We like to refer to that as the satan fountain in Five Points.

We enjoyed the amazing patio weather, ordered some chips and salsa and  taco salad and it was perfect.



When’s the last time you had orange soda??? Delicious!!!

Saturday evening we spent some time with Chris’s parents and then when we came home Chris’s friend came over and I decided to curl up in bed to start a new book, which was amazing and I am almost done with it and hope to have it in my link up post tomorrow!!!!

Oh and I also got the May Allure box in the mail and tried out the Foreo and OMG!!! I am in love!!! I cant wait to get a review up on this box in a few weeks, it might be my favorite yet!


Sunday we celebrated Mother’s Day with Chris’s family at my SIL. They ordered in Moe’s and we hung out for awhile and then got our grocery shopping done and came home to watch the Chicago shows; Med, Fire and PD. I might have also enjoyed some mint chocolate chip ice cream inside a waffle bowl. YOLO.


And just like that, the weekend was over. I hope you all have a fabulous week!!!

Linking up with Biana.

      Be sure that before you DO sign up you head on over to reddit’s /r/BeautyBoxes and read up on what’s been going on with the May (and even April) Allure boxes. I definitely would not go in blind. Know what you’re getting into.

    I am feeling the same way – what is happening with time? its like on SPEED MODE!!

    & that ice cream in a waffle bowl… mmm.. .that would make my Monday better, for sure. I need one

    So jelly of the Allure box. It’s been an absolute nightmare for me trying to sign up for Allure, and despite signing up on 4/7, I’m supposedly bumped to the June box– though there were folks who have been subbed since March who didn’t get the May box because it was “sold out.” But at the same time it looks like others resubbed as late as 4/28 and were able to get one, so they definitely weren’t sold first come first serve. Customer service has been touch and go, but I don’t think anyone has had what I’d call “good” customer service, and Allure still hasn’t officially addressed this whole fiasco. With that being my first impression of them as a company… Well, let’s just say I’m not that confident I’ll get a June box, either. Apparently this is the second month in a row they’ve had these issues, and now they’re actually issuing refunds in the forms of CHECKS as opposed to refunding the money to a credit card. Lordy… I spoke with Chase, and they said that if I don’t receive a product within 60 days of my order to give them a call and they’ll credit my money back and take it up with Allure on my behalf, which is nice. I’ve gotten flat out rude responses and even been lied to by their customer service, so knowing that Chase will deal with them instead of this lowly customer is a weight off my shoulders.

    Y’all really did have gorgeous weather this weekend, so good call on the Mexican food on the patio! And ice cream in a waffle cone bowl is always a great idea! It looks so yummy! You got so many great things in your Allure box too! I can’t wait to hear what you think about all your goodies!

    Yum, mint chocolate chip is one of my favs!! I can’t wait to see your box review, especially on the Pixi stuff, I am kinda loving that line, well, the two products I’ve tried. Yay for patio time, we finally got to sit out on ours and we watched the Chicago shows last night too, so good! Hope your week is off and running!! 😉
