It’s Monday-Scenes From The Most Gorgeous Weekend Ever

Happy Monday!  For some reason I can’t write that without thinking of a little song in my head…”It’s Monday Monday Monnnnnday!!!”  I know I’m weird.  What were you up to this weekend?  This was the first time in I can’t even remember how long I had literally no plans.  Like I laid out by the pool and didn’t stress about the things I should be doing.  Can you remember the last time that happened?  Oh so you’re saying that’s how life should be?? I guess I just finally let myself relax and I did some mental recharging.

Unfortunately the girls beach weekend had to be rescheduled but there was plenty of opportunities for getting some Vitamin D.

I had to get my oil changed, I knew it was on the horizon but my car dinged at me telling me it was time.  So I made an appointment and then set to google to see if I could find any coupons well wouldn’t you know I found one.  I was fully expecting the dealership to tell my my car was excluded for whatever fine print BS they like to pull like my car was too new or only from the years 2010-2011 were including or something to that effect.  So when the guy willingly took the coupon and when I asked him how much that was going to save me and he said about $100 it took everything in me not to do this.

Then that happiness was quickly replaced with slight rage for him not gelling me about it when I made the service appointment in the first place.  Anyways then I felt like I should celebrate that saving of money with a mini shopping spree.  So I did.  Details to come later this week but hint it involves a new lens for my camera (so I can really start using my DSLR) and some online shopping.  I can’t help it!  Ebates was 9% off at Nordstroms that like never happens.  Moving on…..

Friday I managed to pull this outfit together for work.

I got so many compliments it made me wonder what I usually wear on a daily basis for this one to get that much attention.  I realize I did put pants on but really!  Even someone from the next office over came over to tell me I looked “super cute today!”

Friday night we dined at our favorite Thai place that is almost walking distance from Marks place.  The food is delicious.  We just found out they were recently sold but the new owners reassured us they are keeping the same staff and menu.  However they are implementing new Happy Hour specials like the one we stumbled onto Friday night.  All you can drink top shelf alcohol for 3 hours open bar.  Ummmm excuse me??

Since Mark was finishing up his antibiotics we tucked that little nugget of information and tried the other Happy Hour Special.  1/2 off the entire sushi menu.
We wanted to try a bunch to figure out which ones we liked.  We can home and I absolutely felt like this.

Since I went to Marks house after work and forgot to bring sandals to change into…..guess who got to go to Barre rocking this look again (I know it’s an old pic but it just works so perfectly!)
The best part is I had a Starbucks gift card I wanted to use and the one I drove by naturally had no drive through. I walked right in there with my heels clicking away at 9 in the morning with my head held high…..embracing the stripper judgement looks like a champ.

It was worth it to get this Venti dark roast.  I am loving the pink sleeves.  I’ll admit it.  Totally letting myself be influenced by yet again another genius Starbucks marketing campaign.  Don’t they look so pretty though right??
Let’s talk about how happy I was when Mark came home from Costco with these!
Sunday after I taught two Barre classes in a row I met Kelly at her place for some Spritzers (bahahahaha doesn’t that sound so old???) and a little bit more soaking up of the beautiful weather.  How sweet is that wine tumbler?  I kept on thinking the whole time….”why couldn’t I have invented this??”
The rest of Sunday involved catching up with work and trying to map out my posts for this week.  Oh and I made a super cute button for the link up on Friday!  I can’t wait to show y’all this week!  I also eat the last one *insert sad face.

What were you up to this weekend?  Did you soak up some sunshine hopefully??  Check back tomorrow we are talking about staple hair care products!  xoxoxoxo

  6. April 14, 2014 / 12:29 PM

  7. April 14, 2014 / 12:29 PM

    So much wonderful here! I can’t remember the last time I had a quality sushi hangover. And sometimes you just need your coffee – love that you embraced the stripper look.

  8. April 14, 2014 / 12:38 PM

    OMG the weather this weekend was so amazing! I loved getting to spend some time at the pool! That’s so awesome you go to use that coupon! I swear any time I have a coupon I never get to use it. Or I forget it… so bad. Um that sushi place has the best happy hour ever. I’m jealous! Glad you had such a great weekend!

    It was gorgeous this weekend and I enjoyed some of it. I was so busy though, that Sunday was spent napping after church. Drinking for my bday and a wedding…..woof!

    Love your outfit and jealous of the pool! happy Monday indeed!

  13. April 14, 2014 / 12:55 PM

    So jealous you got to sit by the pool! We had our first 80 degree day on Saturday, but it’s supposed to snow today so yeah… #Illinoisweather

  14. April 14, 2014 / 12:59 PM

    jealous that you have pool weather! while we have nicer temps, it’s not THAT nice as to warrant putting on a bikini. i wish, though.

  15. April 14, 2014 / 1:05 PM

    hehhehe the pic totally cracks me up again. jealous of the pool time!

  16. April 14, 2014 / 1:30 PM

    For once I’m not TOTALLY jealous of your warm weather, but I still actually am because I would love to be laying out by the pool ;) Your outfit DOES look so cute! Love the stripes & the statement necklace so much! I share your skepticism over coupons and probably would have felt the same way! It’s the best when you get to use a coupon!

  17. April 14, 2014 / 1:38 PM

    Those ice cream sandwiches are the b-e-s-t! I think I need to visit Trader Joe’s today…

  18. April 14, 2014 / 1:53 PM

    PERFECT weekend. I saw so many FL girls sharing pics from the pool, I AM SO READY TO MOVE haha ;) We did have a perfect weather day Saturday!

  19. April 14, 2014 / 1:56 PM

    So much fun!! I need one of those wine glass tumblers!! I’m glad you went into Starbucks like a boss and got your coffee ;) that happy hour special sounds amazing and yes, amazing!

  20. April 14, 2014 / 2:24 PM

    I want that wine tumbler! And I’m also jealous of the pool time!!!

  21. April 14, 2014 / 2:28 PM

    Your pool view has me totally jealous! What a fun weekend!!! We gotta enjoy all this wonderful weather while we can!

    Look at your rocking your work shoes with your work out gear. If you do it, you gotta own it!

    That ice cream sandwich….OMG. I hate you. Haha :)

  22. April 14, 2014 / 2:42 PM

    They never just tell you about the coupons. So rude! Glad you found it, though!

  23. April 14, 2014 / 2:48 PM

    You OWN those heels girl! I have to agree that your work outfit is super cute and that sushi has got me craving sushi hardcore now, so thanks for that.

    That sushi looks so delicious! And that outfit is super cute.

  25. April 14, 2014 / 3:18 PM

    Oh my gosh, you are hilarious in your heels. If I saw you in sbux I would have definitely been thinking “she’s clearly on her way to walmart in that fashion statement!” Hahaha I need those cookie ice creams…are they trader joes?!
    Your weekend looked heavenly!

  26. April 14, 2014 / 3:35 PM

    Sounds like an amazing weekend! It was 80 degrees here this weekend which felt amazing! I literally cannot remember the last time air conditioning actually felt good. Anyways, I decided that I’m definitely going to buy one of those *classy* baby pools and park my tush in the backyard the next time it’s that nice out.

    I NEED those wine glasses in my life.

    xo, jen

  27. April 14, 2014 / 3:36 PM

    Yes yes yes…. loving the sun an beautiful temps in Atlanta this weekend. I was out in it too… choking on the pollen but still. I love the green skinnies. I need to shed a few more lbs to get mine on again but soon! That ice cream sandwich looks like heaven!

  28. April 14, 2014 / 3:55 PM

    what a fun weekend! looks like you had a blast! and i love the shoes… too funny!

  29. April 14, 2014 / 4:09 PM

    I was totally thrilled that I didn’t have to wear a jacket this weekend but then you one upped with a legit poolside weekend. Jealous!!

  30. April 14, 2014 / 4:19 PM

    It looks like you had a great weekend! That outfit is so cute, I’d pin that look on Pinterest. :)


  31. April 14, 2014 / 4:40 PM

    so i just signed up for ebates and i feel like such a neewb.

  32. April 14, 2014 / 4:41 PM

    YES! We were up in the 80s and sunny so you best believe I was out in my bikini! Felt amazing. Your outfit from Friday is too cute! How much are your styling services? ;)

  33. April 14, 2014 / 4:49 PM

    Weekend PERFECTION. That is a super cute outfit but the gif made it even better somehow hah. Spritzers 1. Sound old but 2. are flipping fantastic. Happy Monday!

  34. April 14, 2014 / 5:24 PM

    Looks like you had a really nice weekend. Though your laying out pics seem a bit dark for lots of rays…

  35. April 14, 2014 / 5:35 PM

    hahaha love it all AS USUAL! -ugh I have to get my oil changed too soon I just noticed its on 16%…wondering how low it can go? Maybe 5ish? That outfit is fab girl! Way to go! (the little girl thank you gif is my fav haha)

  36. April 14, 2014 / 6:12 PM

    Sounds like weekend perfection. I see so many gifting opportunities for that tumbler!

  37. April 14, 2014 / 6:22 PM

    Ha I love this post! That happy hour sounds ridiculous (in a good way). I had one of those relaxing weekends too, it feels so weird when there is nothing pressing going on!

  38. April 14, 2014 / 8:29 PM

    Bah aha love the cat pic! That’s totally how I feel sometimes! Jealous of the pool! And guess who may have found some barre classes close to her?!! This girl!!

  39. April 14, 2014 / 8:30 PM

    Great weekend recap! Sounds like so much fun! I’m hosting a swap that benefits mental health awareness – stop by to sign up!

    Lol’ing at the heels and barre clothes…that is amazing. And your weekend was equally as amazing as that girlfriend! Xx.

  41. April 14, 2014 / 8:45 PM

    I hate anything to do with maintaining my car. Such a drag. Love your heels paired with your barre outfit definitely the safer route over barefoot (a la Britney Spears)!

  42. April 14, 2014 / 8:53 PM

    Those skinny jeans are adorable!

  43. April 14, 2014 / 9:26 PM

    Wow! That sushi!!!! The outfit is super cute! LOL about the heels and barre ensemble. I’d strut in Starbucks like that too…anything for my Starbucks.
    Glad you had a lovely, relaxing weekend.
    XO, Gina

  44. April 14, 2014 / 11:03 PM

    How much are your oil changes that you saved $100?! My mind is blown over that, when I get my oil changed it’s like $45! Sounds like the perfect weekend.. yay for some relaxation and pool time! And I’ve got TJ’s on my to-do list this week to pick up some of those ice cream sandwiches :)

  45. April 15, 2014 / 12:30 AM

    That outfit IS super cute! I totally laughed out loud reading about the heels & Starbucks. Power to you! I don’t think I would have had the guts to walk in lol. And totally agree on the Starbucks sleeves, they’re just so cute and make me that much happier when I’m drinking my coffee :) Xo

  46. April 15, 2014 / 2:38 AM

    There are so many amazing things going on in this post, that I just don’t know where to start. Love it all. Especially the heels at barre class and food pics. I love food pics so much. =)

    And 9% at Nordstrom? How did I miss that? I LOVE ebates.

  47. April 15, 2014 / 4:11 PM

    I’m so painfully jealous of your weekend–stripper attire and all! And that ice cream cookie sandwich. Every time I see something from you it makes me want to pack up the car and head out to FL. I swear.

  48. April 15, 2014 / 11:23 PM

    We got so much sun this weekend it was SO nice! I can’t imagine not being outside enjoying it. Sounds like you had a really awesome weekend. I love when coupons work for me :D How awesome about the happy hour specials!

  49. April 23, 2014 / 1:32 AM

    I am so jealous of your weekend! It looks so warm there!! I want to go to there….
