weekend shenanigans

Weekend Shenanigans

We are just cruising right through July, aren’t we? I am not even sure where my weekend went or how it can possible be Monday morning already. I want a recount!

For Friday Lunch Club we hit up Real and Rosemary in Homewood. I can always could on having healthier options there. Well, minus the fried green tomatoes we split as an appetizer. Hehe!



I tried out their Strawberry Mint “Spa Water” and am determined to make some of this on my own at home. So refreshing!!! I had the roasted turkey plate with seasonal succotash and corn polenta as my main dish. Everything was fabulous, as was the company of my Friday Lunch Club!!



Saturday I started on a new book (The Restaurant Critic’s Wife) and cleaned the house. Chris and I headed over to Babies R Us to start our registry!!! We had so much fun picking out things that we are going to need to Baby M! You guys, there are sooooo many choices in every item category. It gets a little overwhelming! I had gone in having researched the shit out of car seats, strollers, bottles, and a few other things…but I clearly have more research to do after walking around that store for a few hours. It’s so exciting though!

Also, Laura bought Baby M her first dress! How adorable is this???


After all that registering, Chris and I headed to The Tavern for a late lunch. It was delicious!


Sunday my sister and I headed over to Kohls to pick out some baby clothes! My mom had gotten me a gift card to go crazy once we found out the gender. And crazy we went! We picked out so many cute things. Plus, Kohls had 15% off your purchase and they were giving $10 Kohls cash. They know how to get me back for more.

Tracy took me out to lunch at Jim n Nicks to celebrate, and then we headed to Target to start the registry there. Unfortunately, after 45 minutes of going back and forth with customer service we gave up. Their system was having issues and we weren’t able to sign in to scan things. Ugh! So I took pictures of some stuff I don’t want to forget to add online.

Have you guys tried to Iced Coconut Milk Mocha Macchiatto at Starbucks??? I grabbed a small one this weekend and it was amazing!!!

There was also a lot of snuggling this little guy while watching Breaking Bad.

And just like that, the weekend was over! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!!! You can find me fixing our registry today. Somehow a bunch of diapers and stuff we didn’t register for ended up on it. Maybe they default when you start a new one? I don’t know but it was ridiculous and it must be fixed! Any baby favorites out there I just have to have??

Linking up with Biana.

    Such exciting stuff happening! That dress is the sweetest. I’m glad to hear you like the new Starbucks drink! I’ve had to turn to coconut and almond milk lately, so I’m glad they’ve made this a menu item! Happy monday!

    WHAT is that starbucks drink? I haven’t heard of it, but it sounds amazing! Also that food looks delicious- what a cool restaurant! I can imagine it was so overwhelming (but fun) to start picking out things for your baby registry!

    Yay for baby registry, new Starbucks drink, lots of good food, and doggy snuggles! How much do I love that little pineapple dress from Laura! Baby girl M is gonna look precious as can be! Hope you have a fabulous week ahead!

    Hooray for getting some registry stuff done! That little dress is so cute! That spa water sounds delicious.

    that cheeseburger looks heavenly!! I haven’t had a cheeseburger in a long time, but that might need to change this week (hint hint) — so glad you and your sis had a good time going to register, and then yay for cheese biscuits and jim n’ nicks!!

    Looks like a great weekend! I love fried green tomatoes and those look amazing! That dress is so precious! Baby clothes are the best!

  • Reply Rebecca Jo July 18, 2016 at 11:02 am

    I actually just bought that same dress for a friend’s baby – I LOVE it.
    So much fun baby shopping!
    I need to try that drink – but man, that name is long 🙂

    I predict lots of baby-filled weekend activities in your future! You’re right about all the baby buying stuff being overwhelming. Anytime I try to buy something for my nephew (he’s right around 18 months) I’m super overwhelmed!!

  • Reply kristen July 18, 2016 at 11:27 am

    ugh i hate doing registries in person. i did all of mine online, and will do when i do the baby one. it’s just so overwhelming, and i feel like they are always having issues. i went with a friend to do her baby one at babies r us a few years ago and they were having glitchy issues. so annoying. all the food looks amazing as usual, and how cute is that little dress? buying clothes is the most fun part 🙂

  • Reply Lauren @ Oh Hey! I Like That! July 18, 2016 at 11:37 am

    Ahhh baby registries!!!! Is it wrong that I can’t wait to get pregnant, just so I can get this for the future babe? http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=62354346&cp=2255957.2273443.68241026.2256083&parentPage=family

    Yay for the registry! I tried to get one of those drinks this week but my starbucks had already sold out by 11:00!

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders July 18, 2016 at 12:15 pm

    I demand a recount for this weekend too, it flew by way too fast! It sounds like you had a fantastic weekend with lots of baby prepping happening! That sucks that Target was having issues and you couldn’t get everything taken care of there. But hooray for Kohl’s sales and getting lots of new goodies! It’s always the best when you get a sale on top of another sale! I also tried the Iced Coconut Milk Mocha Macchiato this weekend, and it was so good! I might be getting that more this summer than the caramel Macchiato!

  • Reply Cara July 18, 2016 at 12:47 pm

    It’s always super exciting to start buying baby clothes! They make so many cute outfits (especially for little girls) and it’s hard to pass up!

  • Reply Dani July 18, 2016 at 2:27 pm

    I’ve actually never had fried green tomatoes- I need to try it! And looking forward to your review on that book because I’ve read it too! Yay for registries and alllllllll the cute baby clothes! Sorry to hear about Target’s system being down, but I would have done the same thing. Honestly though half the fun is walking around with the scanner!

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista July 18, 2016 at 3:25 pm

    How exciting that you guys started your baby registry! Definitely overwhelming, but you can always add/remove things at home online. YUM to that strawberry mint spa water, you always find the best lunch spots! Cheers to a fabulous week <3

    Just saw your PG announcement on FB, congratulations! That dress is the sweetest. Your girl will be styling from the time she emerges.

    I love flavored waters.

  • Reply Emelia July 18, 2016 at 8:03 pm

    OH MY GOSHHHHH that dress! The cutest! How sweet is your mom letting you go all wild at Kohl’s? So sweet, they have some great deals! I love your Friday lunch spot, looks so cute…and you can totally make your own infused water. I do it all the time…strawberry and mint sounds yummy! Glad you had a good weekend and fun doing baby things, YAY!

    OMG! I am so excited to see all the little girl stuff, congrats again!

    I’ve never had a baby, but I get an unexplainable joy about shopping off a baby registry for someone that is expecting. Such a lovely time in your life 🙂

    all this food is making me hungry in the AM!! and i don’t have pregnancy as an excuse, lol.

    I hope you get to go back to Target to register! They have so much fun stuff. They just came out with that new line of adorable kids clothes, too. Make sure they give you the gifty bag! Yummm those fried tomatoes look good.
