Weekending-The Weekend That Wasn’t

Happy Monday y’all.  I hope you had a fabulous weekend!  I think mine is best told with some picture recaps.

This weekend started out great.

Having fish tacos….yes they were fabulous.

It was so blazing hot this weekend, my hair pretty much stayed in this fishtail braid.


While I did some of this.

(I mean doesn’t that rack look straight out of studio 54???) Obsessed with Leith Lace Panel Tank
Have to cover your face and highlights this hat is only $24!!  It’s perfect for the Summer!

I woke up Sunday morning to this….

Got to spend a few hours at Costco where I found some money finds like this (I have a feeling I will be using that little mini more times than I want to admit).  Btw…..like honestly why do razors cost so dang much?

Ultimately my day then needed to end with these.

I wanted to take the time to give a little shoutout to my dad.  He is seriously the most amazing, wonderful, caring and sweetest man ever.  I mean on Father’s day he wanted me to come down early so he could “quickly wash my car”.  He raised six successful children and is now enjoying his newly retired self.  Don’t worry he is staying very busy with his grandkids, orchids, church and all his new endeavors.  I love you dad and can’t even put into words how much you mean to me.

I’ll leave you with this…..
I love living in Florida!  Make sure to check back tomorrow!  I have all the Summer Essentials you need!  xoxoxoxo
Linking up with my girl Biana for her Weekending recap!

    Love how great the tacos look! Whenever I need to go somewhere I can bet there would be no gas in my car. I always wait till the very last second possible to go fill up my tank.

    Also Happy father’s day to your dad :)

  12. loveee your braid! im glad at least the first part of your weekend was good! xo jillian – cornflake dreams

  13. it was so hot over the weekend! but shopping helps, as it works to cure most things :) i was glad to be at the beach saturday with the crazy terrible weather that happened in orlando that day. ugh i wish lived closer to the coast! happy monday! xo


  14. OMG It was definitely SO hot this weekend! I didn’t even get any pool time because it was too freaking hot! I need to get me one of those mini razors! Such a smart idea! And I agree, they are way too freaking expensive. Love all those pics of you and your dad! Too cute! Hope you had a fabulous weekend!

    That little razor is so cute! Love the shoutout to your dad. He seems awesome!

    PS I am so jealous of you living in Florida. It’s just not fair.

  16. Joey says:

    Besides the low tire, this sounds like a perfect weekend. I feel like I could use a dose of all those things!! Esp the cupcakes!

  17. Love the fishtail braid and maxi! Cupcakes and wine sound (and look) delish. Sounds like a pretty good weekend. Hope you have a good Monday!

  18. P!nky says:

    That sunset is amazing, you are so lucky lady!

    Love the hairdo and outfit and those fish tacos look delish! Glad you had an enjoyable weekend.

  19. That sunset is gorgeous!! Looks like an awesome weekend, I don’t know how you manage in that heat! Charleston is oddly very similar in the summer to Florida, which was a disappointment for me because I thought I was getting away from the humidity when we moved here. haha!

  20. Pretty sure I drooled over the fish tacos and cupcakes. Love how you kept the fish theme, too.

  21. Christina says:

    oh those tacos!!! i am giggling at the razor. ;) you never know when you’ll need that!!!!

  22. That sunset is gorgeous. So jealous! Loving the fishtail braid and it’s seriously the sweetest that your dad wanted to wash your car for you on Fathers day! Happy Monday, girl!

  23. Rebecca says:

    Yeah um, why do razors cost so much!?? Love that fishtail braid, and is that Forever 21?? Aka my favorite store ever?? I can never leave there without buying 20 things!

  24. Ugh… so sorry about your car. I seriously hate car problems. Love your pics with your dad and your fishbraid. Wish I could do that!

  25. I’ve been living in the fishtail too! If only I could wear the fishtail with some gold hammer pants, then my life would be complete.

  26. Aww, your dad is sweet. We just bought our house this weekend, and yesterday, my dad just went to the house and cleaned out our gutters. I was like, “umm it’s Father’s Day, you should be lounging!”, but he said he couldn’t stand the thought of us moving in with all that. Gotta love nice daddies. Love the fishtail braid!

  27. That fishtail braid looks great, wish I could do that to my hair! I love living in Florida too!

  28. Your fishtail braid looks great! As does that hat on you!

    Seriously, why are razors so expensive?? And why does the hair on my legs grow back so quickly….?

  29. That mini would be perfect to leave in my car’s glove box for when I notice I missed shaving my knee!

  30. Razors are ridiculously expensive. I order mine from Dorco now and they’re a zillion dollars cheaper.

    I can’t braid for crap, yours is awesome!

  31. Aww love the dad pictures! Mine is the same way – he washes my car EVERY single time I come home! And seriously, why do razors cost so much?! Glad you guys had a good weekend.. drooling over those fish tacos!!

  32. I’ve been wanting to get that mini razor! It’s at Costco? Good thing, we are going there next weekend. Love looking through all your pictures – looks like a good weekend!

  33. so you had low tire pressure?! that sucks!!!

    i loveee fish tacos now all of a sudden and now i would like them for dinner tonight! great view. wonderful pics! :)

  34. How delicious do those fish tacos look?! YUM! Loving your fish tail & your black maxi dress!

  35. alyssa says:

    Those tacos look deeeelish. I need to get some fresh seafood in my belly stat. Tis the season! Looks like a sweet weekend, yay! :)

  36. Florida can be so dang pretty! I love the sunsets there. I have a close friend who lives in Orlando, and everytime I visit her, I have to go to the coast. I just love it.

    LOVE that Trixxi Maxi on you. I want to buy one so bad, but I’m afraid it will be too short….BUT, Nordstrom does have a great return policy.

  37. Sad day for the Beamer! And your wallet. Your dad is precious. :)

  38. Ahh that last picture is beautiful! I wish I lived near the ocean :) maybe one day… ;)
    Great picture of you and your dad! And love the black maxi! you can never have enough maxi dresses in my book! xx

  39. Mree says:

    I cannot stand the heat so I could never live in Florida. Last time I was there, all I did was complain that it was too hot and it was only March. hahah. Love the fishtail!! I go nuts when the “low tire” light comes on. It has to be reset by the dealership which I think is such a pain. You know the potholes around here!! OOh I have been wanting to try that razor. Will have to go to costco. Love me some crumbs!!

    Best, Mree

  40. Those fish tacos are making me starving. They look SO good! Your dad sounds fantastic :)

  41. Love the hat! The low tire light always freaks me out but hopefully you made it to a place to add air. Great pics of your Dad.

  42. Shelby H. says:

    Perfect weekend! Razors suck and men’s are like twice the cost I swear. Loving the maxi (F21?) with that necklace! And your dad is too cute ;)

  43. brooke lyn says:

    your fishtail makes me miss my long hair

  44. I was thinking did some crazy slash your tires??? Lol… I’m guessing it was something else. Oh and those fish tacos look amaze!! Cute maxi!

  45. Love your fishtail! Always love the fishtail! :)

  46. Erin LFF says:

    So I don’t even really LIKE fish, but those tacos look absolutely delish. Not as delish as that cupcake, but still! ;)

  47. Razors are seriously insanely expensive…!! Drives me nuts!!

    And those fish tacos look amazingggg!!

  48. Those fish tacos look amazing… And so does your fishtail braid! Yum Crumbs cupcakes are my fave :-)

  49. Brianne says:

    I really need to get that razor. People keep posting about it & I need it!

  50. Those razors! haha I just saw the commercial! Love the wine and sweets ending to the night and the cute shopping outing! Glad the weekend was great!

  51. Oh my! That view! I need the beach immediately!!!!

    Look at you rocking that hat! I look ridiculous in hats. It isn’t fair!!!

    Are those cupcakes? Seriously girl, just stop!

    I just complained this weekend about how much razors cost! ICK!!!!

  52. Tami says:

    UGH it was hot as a mofo this weekend! also so jealous of your hair that’s long enough to fishtail… mine still sticks out all over the place cause it’s too short. maybe by next summer

  53. It was hotter than heck this weekend! But you looked fabulous! Could you go ahead and send those fish tacos my way? Mmkay, thanks!

  54. Jenny says:

    I love that black maxi dress! And your fishtail braid. Wish I was talented enough to do that!

  55. I definitely can’t comment w/o making a bad “fish taco” joke… haha! ;P
    Razors and tampons are the bane of my existence. Shit should be free! Mostly the tampons though b/c I don’t shave THAT often… bahahah! ;P

  56. Love all you pictures and the fishtail braid! How cute!

  57. Meagan says:
