Weekend recap!

Weekend Recap!

We had such a busy weekend! I was off Friday... So I had a long weekend....but it def didn't feel like it! IT FLEW BY!!

Thursday night...we had dinner with friends and the girls did a gift exchange!

Friday during the day... I went Christmas shopping for all the nephews and niece AND found a few items for myself and E! I was sooooooo pooped!!!

Like...what kid wouldn't want a cotton candy machine?!?!
Although I think my sister is gonna kill me haha!

And do y'all remember when we were kids (now keep in mind I'm 30 lol)...freeze dried astronaut food? Or am I the only dorky one that thought it was cool?!?! I even had a science kit and did ALL of the experiments!

Friday night...E and I went to Eddie V's. A steak and seafood restaurant...and I have to say this was the best food I've had in a long time! We had dessert...and it WASN'T chocolate! We ordered the BANANA FOSTER'S CAKE!! When they brought it out to us...they set it on the table and LIT IT ON FIRE!! To caramelize the bananas! WOW!!! I was so amazed at how awesome this tasted!!

But before Eddie V's...we made a stop at Cavendar's Boot! I found a pair of boots I liked but they didn't have my size. Eric found these awesome boots!
SUPER SNAZZY! (and yes...I thought I would try them on haha!)

Saturday morning I woke up super early to go Christmas shopping again...I had a late start Friday. And again I was soooo pooped!

Bunches of clothes for all the kids!

Wrapping gifts!
(and trust me when I say...I am no Martha Stewart at wrapping!)

Saturday night we ate Mexican food at Cyclone Anaya's! And then hopped on over to The Yardhouse for some drinks!

Here is a pic from that night! I'm wearing a cute scarf I found at Urban Outfitters and E is wearing a beanie from Express (some of the gifts for ourselves lol)!

The weekend was busy BUT I had such a good time with E. As I've said before...we are such homebodies...not sure what got into us this weekend but we needed it!

I went grocery shopping on Sunday and ran a few last minute errands. I had to wear my skull socks since we hadn't done laundry in a while! When I got home...E had stopped at Lo Cal's to get some lunch (our fav healthy joint). I got a buffalo hot dog! 

And I think that's our weekend in a nutshell!

Do you ever have to wear crazy socks because you're putting off laundry? lol!



  1. Sounds like a fun time! I really need to start on my wrapping soon!!

  2. I use any excuse I can to wear crazy socks. I have some funky/cute knee socks that I use for running. They're actually on the blog today if you want to check 'em out. I need to buy some more!
