Weekend Shenanigans

And just like that the middle of May is here!!! Weren’t we just asking how it could possibly be May already and now it is half gone?

Friday started out with lunch at Chicken Salad Chick. One of our Friday Lunch CLub girls is back after being out of the country for a few months, so it was great to get to see her!

Friday evening on my way home, I stopped by American Cookie Company to pick up Chris’s birthday cake that I ordered. Pay the up-charge to front the whole cake, it’s worth it!!!


Saturday morning I cooked up a big birthday breakfast for Chris, and we hung around the house watching tv, playing video games, etc. We then decided to head out for a late lunch at Hickory Tavern. We split some crab dip, and then I had a side salad and a cup of loaded potato soup which was amazing!!!

We then headed over to Paramount to meet up with Chris’s parents on their patio and sip drinks and enjoy the amazing weather we were having. I couldn’t resist a root beer float!


Saturday night, Chris’s parents had the family over for a birthday dinner. The food and company were amazing, as always.

Sunday was a day of meal planning, running errands, grocery shopping and then parking it in front of the TV to relax and eat some Moe’s BBQ that I picked up on the way home from the store.

I hope the birthday boy enjoyed his weekend! I know I did. Chris ordered some super fun floats for all of us for our beach trip in July, and now that is all I can think about. It seems so far away!!!

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

    It sounds like you had the best weekend celebrating your husband’s big 3-0! I would definitely pay the up charge to get the cake exactly when and how I wanted it! It’s seriously so crazy that May is already half way over, but you know that means that your beach trip is even closer than what you think! I hope you have a great start to your week!

    Loaded potato soup is one of my favorite things ever– as are root beer floats! It sounds like Chris had a good birthday– I haven’t had a cookie cake in forever, but now I’m craving a piece!

    I am the opposite with cookie cake – I scrape the icing off! That sounds so good, though. I need to find someone with a birthday ASAP!

    My aunt and uncle are franchise owners of several locations of The Great American Cookie Company. These have been a staple in our family for many years. I love them so…and now, you can cover the whole thing in icing?!? YES!

    I’m so busy looking at that root beer float and the cookie cake birthday that I can’t focus on anything else, hahaha. GIVE ME ALL THE YUMMY FOOD. <3

    Looks like a fun weekend, I’d take a cream soda float about now!

  • Reply Jenna May 17, 2016 at 2:23 pm

    Is it weird that I’m looking at that delicious chicken salad and thinking to myself, “I really want that pickle”?

  • Reply Dani May 17, 2016 at 4:48 pm

    That cookie cake looks SO good! Sounds like a great weekend celebrating Chris’ birthday! Can’t wait to see all the fun floats he ordered- don’t worry, vacation time will be here before you know it!

    All that food looks amazing. Cookie cakes are my favorite kind of cakes, besides ice cream cake.
