Weekend Shenanigans

My goodness that first weekend of June just flew right on by, didn’t it? It was rainy on and off all weekend here in Alabama. This is basically what the entire weekend looked like, with bursts of random sunshine here and there…


Friday, Laura and I were supposed to try a new restaurant that just opened. Unfortunately, the line was about 40 people long out the door and no food is worth that kind of wait!!! No need to fear, we had Skycastle next door as backup. A delicious backup it was! We split the buffalo chicken dip with house made chips and I ordered a burger and side salad as my entree. The side salad totally makes that a balanced, healthy lunch…right?!



Saturday morning I finished reading Fooling Around and started Mug Shots. Both have been on my Netgalley for quite some time! I then cleaned the house and beat Wooly Yoshi! This was all I got for beating the game…


Bullshit, right? I wanted a damn medal. Or at least a cookie! I started to play NES remix…but I don’t really know how I feel about it. It wasn’t my favorite.


Chris and I headed to Crazy Horse for an early dinner. It is a locally owned restaurant in a small town near our house. The food and service is always outstanding and we are lucky to have such an establishment so close! I almost always order the 5 ounce filet when we go there. They don’t bring a knife out with your meal because the owner believes the steak should just tear apart with a fork or it wasn’t cooked right. And it always is perfect! Normally, I am not a huge fan of fried green tomatoes, but theirs are the shit!!!! They always come on the side.


We hit up Target after our dinner date to get the weekly grocery shopping out of the way, then headed home to watch a SVU marathon of our own.

Sunday morning I had a hair up my ass to clean more of the spare room. My goal is to not have any storage left in our guest bedroom and turn the spare room in to a home office for myself. Chris has an office in our basement. It is ridiculous the amount of bags/totes we have. This pile I pulled out from the bottom of the closet in the spare room.


I am donating some, giving some to my sister, and kept just enough to have for when we need but much more organized! I also got rid of a huge bag of shoes, probably about 10 pairs. And a whole lot of clothes that were hanging between the two spare closets. Why do I hang on to this shit? I haven’t worn/used any of it in the four years we have been at this house.

After a down pour, Chris threw some burgers on the grill for us and I made side salads to go with them. Delicious!



I spent the next two hours finishing season two of Grace and Frankie, reading a little and just relaxing after the huge clean up that morning. We then decided to try out the new Netflix original movie The Do Over with Adam Sandler and David Spade. It was cute. Then we checked out Ali Wong: Baby Cobra. The girl is hilarious!!! Here is a little snippet….

Then I realized that it was Sunday night and the bliss of the weekend was coming to an end. So sad when the Sunday night blues kick in. I hope that you all had a fabulous weekend!!!

Linking up with Biana.

    Good job letting some of your stuff go! I keep patting myself on the back for having successfully “minimized” our house and then I find another stash of something. Currently working on going through memorabilia, both digital pictures, and my tiny, little save box of photos, random pieces of paper, and other junk. I started looking at it the other day just for fun and then realized there’s so much in there that it’s too overwhelming to actually enjoy looking at, so my goal is to get it down to a level that’s actually useful and not a huge pile that I won’t get any value out of.

    I loved fried green tomatoes! When Ryan’s relatives were introducing me to Southern foods, they were my favorites.

    I haven’t had fried green tomatoes in so long but I love them! I watched The Do Over a few days ago. I thought it was really fun. Your side salads totally make the burgers healthier! Buffalo chicken dip is soo good! Great job on cleaning stuff out. I got into a cleaning out my closet fit when I was packing up a couple of weeks ago. I still need to go through/get rid of more.

  • Reply Biana June 6, 2016 at 9:06 am

    I’m drooling over that buffalo chicken dip – YUM!! Ah we tried to watch that stand up show, but got about half way through…maybe we should finish it!! Hope you have a great start to your week! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    That food looks amazing! I do not make enough side salads during the week… Too lazy I guess! Ugh the Sunday blues hit me hard yesterday! I have been doing more cleaning, and generally getting rid of stuff. It feels good! Happy Monday!

  • Reply kathy @ more coffee, less talky June 6, 2016 at 9:41 am

    yes to the purging. when i reorg’d my closet, i had clothes from high school; like trampy, ho stuff. not even sure why i had that shit LOL. i kept some of the classy ho stuff (of course but is there such a thing?) and the rest i donated.

    Purging is the best! It just makes you feel ten pounds lighter, and who doesn’t want that?? Our side salads totally made our lunch healthy, and hooray for burgers on the grill! Such a summery thing to do, and I love it. one day we’ll all get together and grill!!

  • Reply Kelli June 6, 2016 at 10:04 am

    So reading about your weekend made me feel like I was way lazier than I should have been. I meant to clean and take stuff to the Goodwill but the beach and my chair said no.

  • Reply Marie June 6, 2016 at 10:05 am

    I just started cleaning out my closets and I too have way too many tote bags. You don’t even want to know how many of those recycling bags I have either. It’s crazy. Those burgers look yummie.

    Sounds like a fabulous weekend!

    We definitely had the same type of weather in Houston that y’all had! Rainy weather and random bursts of sunshine! We have a ton of those reusable bags all over our house too! I don’t know what to do with them so I just keep accumulating them. I think that I have a small fear of going to the grocery store one time and not having any with me. I hope your Monday is off to a good start!

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista June 6, 2016 at 10:32 am

    All that food.. YUM! And the side salad totally balances out the buffalo chicken dip and burger! Yay for beating Wooly Yoshi, but yes you deserve more than all the Yoshis dancing around at the end. I used to love the party and the 5 minute long credits at the end of the Super Mario World that came with the original Super Nintendo when Yoshi was introduced. They need to bring that game back!

    I’ll have to check that lady out – I love a good comedian – especially a good funny lady!
    Yep – unless the food is amazing AND its free, its the only way I’m waiting that long.
    I so hate cleaning out rooms & junk & my hoarding ways – but its so worth it in the end.

    Ohhh that buffalo dip looks amazing…adn the side salad totally cancels it out! 😀

  • Reply carly June 6, 2016 at 11:08 am

    It looks like you definitely enjoyed some good food this weekend– buffalo chicken dip is my favorite! Isn’t it crazy how some things (like bags) you accumulate over time without really realizing it?

  • Reply Jessica @ Pleas(e) & Carrots June 6, 2016 at 2:15 pm

    I’ve never tried fried green tomatoes but they sound delicious! It must be a southern thing bc I’ve never seen them up here!

  • Reply kristen June 6, 2016 at 2:56 pm

    next week i will text you that monday has been cancelled. i feel you. especially when SOME PEOPLE i won’t name names post pictures of delicious looking food on monday morning but i am trying to be good so they just make me hungry and cranky.
    though waiting 40 mins for food? oh hells no.

    You go girl with your purging and organizing! I meant to do that yesterday but somehow ended up wandering around Target for an absurd amount of time.

  • Reply Cara June 6, 2016 at 5:14 pm

    Um that dip looks amazing! Awesome job organizing, it always feels so good to purge!

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis June 6, 2016 at 5:43 pm

    I can never resist ordering buffalo chicken dip if it’s on the menu. I almost tried my hand at buffalo chicken soup over the weekend but we ended up eating out. I feel ya with the on and off rain. We have tornado warnings today in Florida. Hope it clears up for you!

  • Reply Emelia June 6, 2016 at 8:18 pm

    I haven’t had buffalo chicken dip in a while, now I have a hardcore craving!! No knife with the steak…that’s a cool concept- the steak looks great! We cleaned out the garage and some things this weekend…some stuff just had to go, I feel ya on that! Hope you have a great week!

  • Reply Amanda June 6, 2016 at 8:35 pm

    You’re meals look delicious, as always! We love buffalo dip. We make the Pinterest recipe at home all the time.

    That is some BS for winning the game! What a let down! I’d want like, streamers and airhorns going off lol. Great job purging! I have the same issue with bags inside of bags inside of bags haha. So much easier to let go of shit when you have a tangible goal in mind- good luck! And seriously LOL @ Ali Wong. Never heard of her before, but I’ll definitely be checking that out!

  • Reply Jess June 7, 2016 at 1:13 pm

    What is Wooly Yoshi? Omg I want to play some Nintendo. Just gave me Yoshi flashbacks. I don’t have any Nintendo game systems, though.

  • Reply mandie June 7, 2016 at 3:26 pm

    Ya know, I think that I’m gonna have to try some fried green tomatoes, they look interesting. Ha!

    I also agree with you that when you win a video game, you should get something more than a video montage for all the time spent trying to beat it. The system should spit out a cookie, for sure.
