Weekend Shenanigans – The One With Three Days

There is nothing better than a three day weekend, am I right?? Chris dubbed this past Sunday “second Saturday” and it was quite glorious! What’s not glorious? Having to wake up to reality this morning. Woof.

I started my Friday out with my first PSL of the year!!! It was wonderful. For whatever reason, last year I didn’t care for them as much as I usually do but this one was so good! Maybe they changed something? I don’t know.


For lunch, I grabbed Jimmy Johns (always a #12 Beach Club with no mayo or tomato add Dijon and obviously salt and vinegar chips) and walked around The Summit. It was one of those days where I just needed to get out of the office. I scored some really good deals on a few shirts for Chris at Belk! They had an additional 50% off their clearance. When I got back, our internet was down and after waiting it out for an hour my boss told us to just go home and finish our work there. YES!!! A technology fail that worked in my favor.

 Saturday morning I cleaned and did laundry, then Chris and I headed out to Blackwell’s Pub to catch a little of football and I ordered a PB&J burger. Yes, peanut butter and blackberry jelly on a burger! Like any good sports bar, the lighting was horrible and this is the best picture I could get.


We went to Crazy Horse for dinner where we started the Alabama game, caught some of it at his sister’s house and some of it at his parents house and then finished it with a win at our house. And then watched Auburn lose to Clemson. So overall, a great night!

Sunday was a lazy, lazy, lazy day where we literally did not change out of our jammies or leave the couch the entire day. We basically watched all but 2 episodes from season 6 of One Tree Hill and ordered a pizza because we didn’t feel like going to the store. Or anywhere. It was wonderful!!!

Monday morning I read some and then we got an early start to run some errands. We scored some awesome things at Hobby Lobby for the nursery! I stopped by HomeGoods to pick up this super cute bunny tummy time pillow I had seen last weekend only for it to be gone. They had like 7 of them. Damn you Marshall’s Law!! Clearly I still haven’t learned my lesson. We did score a pink elephant hooded bath towel at Bargain Hunt for $5 too though, so all was not lost. Then we got our grocery shopping done, picked up Moe’s BBQ for lunch and watched One Tree Hill the rest of the day!


Oh, and there was lots of this going on this weekend too. Such a sweet, cuddly Mac! He clearly knows the importance of a nap and TV time. And he sits on the arm of our recliner like a freaking boss.

Lots of Mac

And Chris surprised me with “just because” roses. So sweet!!


I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! Linking up with Biana and trying not to think about the fact that our next holiday “off” isn’t until Thanksgiving.

    That’s the Jimmy John’s sub with avocado, right? That’s what I always get, too, if it is!

    I made Oreo rice crispie treats for a cookout this weekend- they were AMAZING!

    Our Monday was super duper lazy- although we did run an errand and K mowed the lawn.

    I bought that elephant/heart art for my niece! So cute!

    I am not going to lie I am a little freaked out by the idea of PB&J on a burger! Every time you post nursery things I love them, that tassel garland is so cute. Glad you got to rest and relax this weekend

    Second Saturday! I love that and wish we had one every weekend. How sweet of Chris to bring you flowers! And so glad Alabama pulled out a win! My wildcats weren’t so lucky… Happy Tuesday!

  • Reply Andrea @ Living On Cloud Nine September 6, 2016 at 10:28 am

    Oh that sweet husband of yours, nothing like a surprise of fresh flowers! Friday was my first PSL of the year too and I’m ready for another one, ha ha! Oh that sweet Mac, he clearly knows how to chill on the weekend with mom and dad! I hope you have the best short week lady!

  • Reply Amanda September 6, 2016 at 10:37 am

    Your Sunday sounds like my entire weekend. I made it a point to do NOTHING. It was amazing!
    How have you been feeling? I’ve been off the radar but I’m getting my ass back into shit… I need an update!

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista September 6, 2016 at 10:43 am

    Just because flowers are the best kind! And no mayo sub in mustard – a girl after my own heart! YUM! Cheers to a short and fabulous week 🙂

    There is nothing better than a long weekend 🙂 Isn’t it awesome/crazy/surreal when your house slowly becomes filled with baby items?!

  • Reply Marie September 6, 2016 at 10:59 am

    What a sweet husband you have! Those roses are beautiful. Yes, they did change the PSL this year. I too wasn’t crazy about it last year. I haven’t had one yet this year but will. Although, my sister said she didn’t like it. haha. Everyone is different, right?

    We were at Hobby Lobby this weekend & I said I wish I had a little girls room to decorate – they have the BEST stuff. All the pink & gold.
    Luckily, my vacation is in October so I can look forward to some more days off soon.

    Aww that was so sweet of him to get you just because flowers!!

    Your Sunday sounds fabulous! Enjoy as many of those as you can before Baby Girl gets here!!! I’m loving all the sweet little girl finds . . . those tassels are so stinking cute! Mac – I die of the cuteness. And the flowers – how sweet was that?!? 🙂

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders September 6, 2016 at 1:42 pm

    My Chris called Sunday a second Saturday too! It was so nice to have that extra time to relax around the house and get stuff done, and super jealous that you had even more time by getting to leave work early! And hooray for the start of football season and both of our teams getting a win in the first week! That PB&J burger sounds really interesting! I don’t really do sweet on something that’s supposed to be savory too much, but I’d give that one a try!

  • Reply Amanda Elizabeth - Meet at the Barre September 6, 2016 at 2:22 pm

    Awwwww good man with those flowers! Wait a PB&J on a burger?!?!?! I think I definitely need to try this. I always think of you now when it comes to Bama football.

  • Reply Jessica @ Pleas(e) & Carrots September 6, 2016 at 2:23 pm

    Jimmy johns chips are the best!! OMG I love the nursery stuff you got! And yay for just because flowers!

  • Reply Jess September 6, 2016 at 2:49 pm

    Mmm pumpkin spice latte. Wonder if they could make it caffeine free for me. I need to figure out what’s so good about Jimmy John’s! It’s been years since I’ve had one, since the nearest one is a small drive.. probably about 20 mins :). What a lucky day, good food + home early. I love blackberry jam! Awww cute baby girl stuff! Can’t wait to be able to decorate a girly room one day.

  • Reply Lauren @ Oh Hey! I Like That! September 6, 2016 at 4:33 pm

    Awww “just because” flowers are the best!

  • Reply Jackie September 6, 2016 at 5:37 pm

    Lazy days were you don’t even change out of your pajamas are the best!!!! I’m glad you had a great weekend <3

  • Reply Robin September 6, 2016 at 7:51 pm

    Lazy days are nice! I think Starbucks baristas get so busy that they, understandably, turn out some drinks that are not as good as usual. I feel bad for them because now they deal with customers in the store and customers using the mobile app before they arrive.

  • Reply Tracy September 6, 2016 at 8:33 pm

    The more PSLs I see floating around the internet, the more I want one! It doesn’t feel like it’s quite time yet but I guess it is!
    The internet was being wonky in our office on Friday afternoon and we got to leave early too! Only like an hour, but still, lol. No one had to tell me twice to leave early for a holiday weekend.
    I LOVE all the things you picked up for the nursery. Judging just from that, it’s going to be adorable!

    I always get the beach club from JJ but on the wheat bread and add sprouts….so good!! Sounds like a lovely weekend of relaxing, productivity and puppy snuggles!

  • Reply ellesees.net September 7, 2016 at 7:40 am

    Not too shabby!! I had the same thing happen with a suitcase. I had one in mind, in purple, and then they were all gone. Dangit!

  • Reply mandie September 7, 2016 at 9:31 am

    I had my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the year over the weekend too. It was so delish. I may just have to go get another one today. Tee hee!

    I love the nursery goodies you found, very cute. 🙂

  • Reply StephTheBookworm September 7, 2016 at 6:29 pm

    Oooh, I love all of your nursery finds! So, so cute!

    Your dog is hilarious! What kind is he? He and my dog look a lot alike. Mine is a Bichon / Pekingese mix which is a weird combo but he’s basically just a long fluffy white dog.

  • Reply kristen September 15, 2016 at 12:53 pm

    ewww i hate salt and vinegar chips hahaha we just can’t agree on jimmy johns sandwiches 😉
