Weekend Shenanigans – The Last of Summer

Well hey there last day if summer! With the temps dropping into the 80’s for the next several days instead of the 90’s…maybe fall is coming here?! One can hope!

Friday – I went to lunch with the co-workers Friday. I normally only eat with the ones that bring their lunches during the week and go out with my girl friends on Friday but we had been talking about wanting to try the Greg Brady burger at Jack Browns and they only serve it on Fridays. You guys…..this burger…..


It has house made macaroni and cheese, a slice of cheese and BBQ potato chips on it. Freaking delicious!

Friday evening I was exhausted and we decided to stay in. I made some seven layer dip and we hung around listened to music and watched TV.

Saturday – I got up bright and early on Saturday morning and worked out, made breakfast then cut our front and half the side yard. I then got ready and we headed down town to meet up with Laura, B and Meighan!!! We started out at World of Beer to watch the Alabama game. I was super nervous about the game because my coworkers bet our corporate office that we would beat our spread against Florida or else we would have to were Gator gear to our retreat next month. When the game started out I got really nervous because for a few minutes Florida was winning 14 to 7. Luckily we pulled it out and wont 42 to 21. Thank the football gods I don’t have to wear that hideous Gator shit next month! Annnnnd now they all have to wear Bama gear. Muh haha! The moral of the story? Never let your coworkers place a bet on your behalf. Talk about stress!

Of course Laura had to wear her Auburn colors.

After the game, we walked down to Fuego for some dinner! I ordered the taco salad and it was delish!


After dinner, Meighan headed to meet up with her fiance and Laura, B, Chris and I headed to Lakeview and the guys hung out at Vape Loft while Laura and I grabbed bushwackers at Lou’s! In true grandma fashion, we were home by 10:30 pm!

Sunday – I got up early Sunday and cleaned the house, made breakfast, meal planned then got our grocery shopping down. I also stopped by Sephora to return a new face wash that I tried that blew my face up. I am so glad they have such an amazing return policy. I came home and made Chris lunch and prepared food to take to my sister’s house for dinner. We celebrated my dad’s birthday last night with him. (It is tomorrow.) Tracy had all the kids home, so it was nice to see everyone for awhile. She makes these amazing chicken quesadilla roll ups that are absolutely amazing. I think I have her recipe sitting around here and I will have to share it one day!

I didn’t get home until 8:00 pm, and the rest of the evening looked like this:


Annnd the Steelers pulled off a win last night! Yay!

And that was how I spent the last weekend of summer!

    I was so glad I didn’t stay up late to see my Panther’s blow it, sleep is 100 times better than watching your team lose.

    I just had the same thing with a natural face wash I bought! I was excited that it was mostly natural with coconut oil as a moisturizer since it was an exfoliant. about 3 days later I was so broken out… booo

    The burger looks good except the BBQ chips. I think I am the only one in the universe who doesn’t like ’em.

    I was going to shout you out on Twitter about that game…..then it just got embarrassing. Don’t get me wrong I knew the Gators would NEVER win that one but they tried to make it interesting in the beginning right? Good ole sephora right? I may need to start alternating my drop in times…I think they are starting to recognize me. Seriously that burger… is like larger than life. I need that….but probably bed first xoxo

    p.s tell Livvy to stop being so pretty it’s annoying 😉

  • Reply kristen September 23, 2014 at 11:56 am
