Weekend Shenanigans – The First of August

Another weekend has come and gone. I feel like I just typed my last weekend shenanigans post yesterday. Not quite sure how that happens. I have noticed that blog land has been particularly quiet these last few weeks. I guess everyone is trying to get as much summering in as they can.

Friday – When you live in a small town, you tend to cling to the local restaurants for some help on nights you don’t feel like cooking but don’t feel like eating out either. Chris and I ordered Landmark BBQ for take out, and the place was packed! If you can believe it, that little shack below had about 15 cars parked out front. Crazy!



I ordered the pulled chicken plate with smoked beans and potato salad. Yum!



Saturday – I had an appointment first thing Saturday morning to get my hair cut and highlighted. Finally. I haven’t been since like March. I told Kerri to take off as much as she needed to make it healthy again. She also added more of the deep dark red highlights this time than she did last time. I was super excited for something new and different. She also makes me want to purchase a curling iron, I liked how she styled it.


After my hair appointment, I came back home and Chris and I had lunch and watched a few episodes of The Good Wife. We then decided to head out for a little while. We headed downtown and looked around at What’s on Second, checked out Bargain Hunt…then headed to The Summit to see what Michael Kors had. (My birthday is coming up soon!) I didn’t really see anything at Michael Kors, surprisingly. I feel the department stores have a better selection that the actual store. Crazy, right? We also walked around Saks to see if they had anything, but I wasn’t sold.

We stopped for an early dinner at Village Tavern. We just ordered the crab dip and chatted. They have the best crab dip!

Then we headed to Trussville and checked out Best Buy and did our grocery shopping while we were out. Groceries are expensive!!!

Sunday – We made breakfast Sunday morning.


And basically spent the rest of the day looking like this while watching The Good Wife and the Carbonaro Effect:


I also painted my nails with the summer block party set.



I hope everyone has a great week!!!!

    You didn’t go to World of Beer? They’re going to think you died!!!

    Love Olivia, don’t like that she isn’t a kitten anymore. Add me to the list of people who aren’t blogging. It isn’t even summer (it’s too damn hot here to be outside!), it’s just life!

    YAY!! Pretty nails! We live in a small town too, and it’s insane how many people pack into these tiny little restaurants! Your hair is gorg! Definitely snag a curling iron (conair 1 1/4 inch is like 15$ and worth every penny–you an find it at any drugstore, walmart, target, etc). I think I need to start The Good Wife.

    Sometimes I get so bz that I forget to do nothing and relax – those are the best. I really love your nails! I used to take time to do my nails but not anymore. Seeing yours makes me want to do it again.

    It never fails, I always end up drooling after your posts! And as for curling irons, I don’t own one either. I never have time to do my hair…ever. Thinking about getting curlformers though.

  • Reply Kimberlee August 5, 2014 at 3:58 pm

    Love the hair and nails! I can definitely relate to the nights you don’t want to cook. You can get anything delivered in NYC… it’s dangerous lol

    Thanks for linking up with MMG 🙂

    Babe I had BBQ Friday night for dinner and it was awful… it did not cure my craving. Yours look freaking amazing. I had Village Tavern on my birthday and it was so delicious; I had never been. I have noticed that about the Coach stores — the department store selections are much better. I love the purse on your newest blog post. You need to come do my nails, they look fabulous girl
