A Typical Weekend Recap

Usually when I share my weekends they include a special event, but my typcial weekend consists of errands. Who else has a million errands to run on the weekend? Is this what adult life is all about? Dang, why didn’t someone tell me this before? I wouldn’t have rushed to be an adult haha Actually, that’s a lie. I’ve been pretty independent since going off to college. So what does a typical weekend look like for me? Here’s a quick recap.

Saturday I had a long overdue hair cut. My hair lady, Kelly, had a freak accident which caused her to break her elbow. She’d been out for 7 weeks…which means I was desperate to get my hair cut.

Lunch date with the hubs at the ever romantic police department. We had JAX Burgers, one of my favorite places to grab a burger.

Like a crazy person I had several shopping stops to make, Hobby Lobby for more items for the baby sprinkle I’m hosting next Saturday, the mall, and Market Street to get Lush Cosmetic’s Skin Drink. Can’t wait to try it out!

A hot day has to include Passion Tea Lemonade with Raspberry from Starbucks đŸ™‚ My favorite for a summer day!

Then I started binge watched Season 5 of Downton Abbey. In the middle of Downton Abbey I decided I should go grocery shopping so I could sleep in on Sunday. By “sleep in” I mean until at least 8:30 lol Remember the days when you could sleep until after 12? Where did those days go?

Sunday started off with the usual puppy snuggles and Food Network. Read about that here. I really like Giada’s new show, Giada in Italy. Then it was off to get my nails done.

We met up with family at Gringo’s for dinner. So yummy and good to see everyone.

I hope everyone had a good weekend! Enjoy your week and I’ll “see” you on Friday! Until next post…xoxo Becca

Favorite Pin Friday | Volume 7

While most of the fashion blogging world is chatting about the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale and other bloggers are talking Memorial Day I’m over here fantasizing about the 3-day weekend I’m about to enjoy. One of my best friends is visiting this weekend and we’ll be enjoying a girls weekend with pedicures and mimosas.

So this week for Favorite Pin Friday I thought I’d mention some of the recipes on the menu this weekend. Pinterest is one of those ways (like Food Network) I find new things to try. A lot of the things you’ll see today are basic, but simple changes to items you already eat can add a lot more variety to a menu (and maybe impress a few people…hopefully). Check out the pictures below and follow the links to their sources for the full recipe. Tell me what some of your go to dishes are!

Avocado plus proscuitto…I’m in heaven!

Wish me luck with this one, it looks like a lot of steps, but so sweet and savory!

Harvest Breakfast Braid | Kevin & Amanda

Mini pizza? Yes please!

Pizza Tarts | Life Currents

If you have a 3-day weekend I hope you enjoy it and remember why we celebrate Memorial Day. Until next post…xoxo Becca
