Weekend Update!


I typically blog about my weekend anyway, so why not link up with Leeann, Dana and Sami, right?! Do you recap your weekends on Sunday or Monday too? Go ahead and click the button below to link up your recap post too!


Friday:
After work, I came home to change, grab Binky and grab a bag to stay with Nate for the weekend. I headed to his place and when I pulled up I wondered where his car was. I'm such a bad girlfriend. I forget that he works every single Friday. He didn't work on Fridays for the longest time, so I'm still getting used to it. ;) 

His roomie/bff was home doing his Insanity workout (looks waaaay too intense for my liking) so we hung out until Nate got home. Then we went and grabbed dinner at Raising Cane's to go. If you've never eaten there, I highly recommend it. SO yum.

It ended up being an early night, like Fridays usually are. Nate scrolled through Netflix forever (like always) but we couldn't find anything to watch, so we headed to bed.

Saturday:
Nate had to work in the morning for a couple of hours, so I laid in bed until 11. I LOVE being lazy on Saturdays. When I finally rolled out of bed to take Binky out, I decided I may as well go grab Starbucks since I was already downstairs. I don't know why, but I love to take Binky in the car with me. He loves it too, and people always comment on how cute he is in the drive-thru. ;)

After Nate got home from work, we lounged around the apartment and watched TV, I finished my book and did a whole bunch of nothing. We always enjoy days like this, and so does Binky.


See? Total bums. Binky would sleep all weekend if we let him.

Saturday night, we were going to a wedding for one of Nate's friends from high school. My nails were looking pretty hellish, so I went over to the nail salon across the street to get a QUICK polish change. I waited for 45 minutes. :-/ While I was there it started to rain, so I pretty much knew my hair wasn't going to look good that night.

Once I had China Glaze's Bridezilla (so fitting!) on my nails, I headed back to the apartment to get ready. I love getting all dolled up with Nate and going out to do something fun. I just love attending weddings.



I get A LOT of compliments on this dress. I found it at F21 for $20. I just love shopping there. I can usually always find the cutest stuff for so cheap! Also, how do you like Nate's tie? I got it for him our first (or maybe second?) Christmas together, and I finally got him to wear it. He's a creature of habit.. so he usually always wears the same thing. ;) I love this red on him though.

The wedding we went to was so gorgeous and the reception was a blast. I love all the personal touches they added. The hors d'oeuvres while we waited on the wedding party to finish photographs were the bride and groom's favorite foods - Wing Stop wings and Chick-Fil-A chicken nuggets. So adorable, right? Also, along with wine and beer served at the bar, they also had the bride's favorite, Blood Orange Margaritas. 



They were to die for, so yum!

Nate hasn't been feeling too well - I think he's fighting off a sinus infection - so we left the wedding a bit earlier than we normally would have. On the way home, I mentioned how I was ready to crawl in my jammies and get in bed. I can't believe how just a few years will change the way you go out and have fun. 4-5 years ago, I would just be going out for the night when Nate and I were headed home, HA!

Sunday:
We woke up pretty early and headed to Walmart because Nate needed a few things, and we decided we'd go ahead and get some beer for the pool. As we were putting the beer in the cart, one of the workers said, "You do know you can't buy that until noon, right?" Damn, totally forgot about that. Nate said that's reason enough to not get out of bed before noon on a Sunday, haha. 

We decided we'd go grab late breakfast and then it'd be after noon and we could get beer. On the way out of Walmart, we stopped at Redbox, like we always do.. well Nate saw that J. Edgar was in there. We've been wanting to see it, but it is usually out when we go to get it. Nate got it and said if I watched it with him, he promised to go to the pool with me when it was over. Done Deal!

After the movie (which was OK, a bit slow though) we headed to the convenience store across the street for some beer and headed to the pool. It was SO hot though that the pool felt like a warm bath instead of nice and cool. So, we only stayed for an hour before we headed back up to the apartment where I packed up because I was leaving to meet up with my bff for dinner.

Now, here I am blogging my weekend for y'all. ;) I am going to read a bit on my kindle while I lay in bed and then it'll be Monday before I know it!

I hope y'all had an awesome weekend!

The wedding sounded pretty fun, too! Chick-fil-a at a wedding?! Awesome. AND blood orange margaritas sound absolutely amazing. I need to find one and try that.
Have a great week lady!

Sounds like a relaxing but also fun weekend. I love shopping at F21 too...and H&M! Do you have on in Dallas? And I'm wanting to try Insanity...I just am a bit fearful of getting hurt...

Sami said...

Sounds like a pretty perfect weekend! I feel the same way, I used to go out every night on the weekends and now I'm just as happy at home lounging. I'm sure it's a lot better for my wallet ;) Thanks for linking up doll!

Heather said...

I swear Binky is the cutest thing, he's not helping my puppy fever at all!!!

Glad you had a good weekend and hope Nate is feeling better!

Ashlee Miller said...

Love lazy Saturday mornings! They are the best. Looks like a perfect weekend.

Dana @ five30three said...

Sounds like such a fun weekend. You look beautiful in that photo! And now I'm super jealous that you got to lounge in bed til 11 am! My son wakes up every day at 6:30 am on the dot. Yeah, even after I've had a drink or two (or four) the night before!!

Thanks for linking up!

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

Sounds like a pretty well-rounded weekend! That's crazy you can't buy beer until 12! I live on Hollywood so I think all of the bums would riot if they couldn't get their booze when they wanted it haha ;)

Thanks for linking up with us and the sweet intro!!

Kelly { MessyDirtyHair } said...

Well it's a super cute dress! Love the color on you! Ruffles are my favorite!

Nicole said...

One of the reasons I continue to love living in Montana: you can buy beer or any alcohol any day of the week, from 8 am-2am. That's our rule...the only rule!

That dress IS cute!! I know someone who did that workout and it looked rough. However, my friends body was rocking when she got done with it!
