Weekending – The Most Gorgeous Weekend Ever

Welcome back to Monday.  This weekend was so unbelievably gorgeous down here.  Bright blue skies, warm sun and temp in the 70’s.  No way to be in anything but a good mood when you step outside.  Linking up with Biana and Meghan!

Friday I had a “day off” I use loosely because I still did work in the morning but then headed out to get my hair done.  I love my hair girl she said told me she has been envisioning my hair and what she wants to do for the Wedding.  Since she’s thinking of pulling it over slightly to the side she wanted to start applying an ombre with blonde to the tips on my underneath layers.  I am obsessed with the change.  I came back, graded papers and then Mark and I headed to Capital Grille for date night.

Dig the mesh inserts on this one
I had the filet with lobster and it was worth every calorie.
Apparently Mark told them it was a special night, we were celebrating having everything nailed down for the wedding.  They interpreted that as our Anniversary……sounds good to me.
Saturday I slept in till a time I embarrassed to even admit but it was amazing.  I think the permanent dark circles under my eyes are vastly improved due to that one sleep in session.  I tried on my new jumpsuit.  I finally took the plunge and I’m obsessed.  I think the key is wearing with heels and having a tapered leg.  First time order from Lulu’s I was impressed.  Fast shipping and free on both ends.

How fabulous would this gold one be for New Years???

Then we did our grocery shopping around the world……the usual subjects, Trader Joe’s, Fresh Market and Publix.  Finally settled in on some dinner and catching up on the DVR.  Did you know that Brussels Sprouts grew on a stalk like this???  
I made Biana’s recipe and it was delicious.  I added peppers, over whole wheat couscous and used goat cheese and feta (both on hand).  It was so good side note was shrimp always so dang expensive?
Sunday I made it up with the land of the living appropriate hours and headed over to Barre.  After, I sat on the balcony, blogged and soaked up the gorgeous Florida weather.  At night we headed to our rehearsal dinner space to finalize all the plans and caught this quick stunner right as the sun was going down.  Florida is so beautiful.
Sunday night I curled up with this…..literally.  Since I am a peppermint ice cream connoisseur (self proclaimed). I give this one a B.  I dig the addition of the white chocolate chips but it wasn’t minty enough and didn’t have enough peppermint pieces.
How was your weekend?  What brand is your favorite peppermint ice cream?  Nothing compares to Kimball’s growing up……have one for me Christina.  Check back tomorrow I have my top 10 tips for growing long and strong hair and on Wednesday I’ll have my workout roundup!  xoxoxo

  5. What a perfect weekend!! Congrats on having everything nailed down and both your outfits are amazing – you are rocking that jumpsuit like no other!! So glad you liked the shrimp recipe – but I have to say the filet oscar is probably my favorite thing EVER!!! I have to say your lack of jackets has me wishing we lived in Florida right about now!! xo

    That black dress is amazing on you and I love both the jumpsuits. I need something with sequins in my closet. I have a scarf, but that’s really it. I have actually only bought frozen brussel sprouts before! Happy Monday! XO

  7. Love your date night! I need to always tell fancy restaurants it’s my anniversary or birthday… hello free dessert! And LOVE that jumpsuit on you! So jealous you are so tall and can rock it! Love the sequin romper too… definitely perfect for NYE! Happy Monday!

    <3, Pamela

  8. That jumpsuit is fantastic, and looks great on you! I’m also loving that sequin romper since I can obviously never resist a good sequin!

  9. Emily says:

    Haha, “Happy Anniversary!” That’s hilarious, but also any excuse to get free dessert. Yuuuuummy!

  10. Ashley says:

    Ohh I love peppermint ice cream! That one sounds pretty good! I love your jumpsuit, it looks amazing on you!

  13. Peppermint ice cream, yum! Glad you were able to get some sleep in this weekend. :) Happy Monday! xo

  14. Sounds like you had a great weekend- I love Capital Grille.. lobster and steak sound divine! And that jumpsuit is super cute- didn’t know they had free shipping, definitely makes it worthwhile! Have a great Monday :)

  15. Filet and lobster is my last meal hands down! I could eat it daily. My hair lady always tries to leave my hair darker underneath and it always drives me insane because I want my hair to be all one color but I guess it looks more natural?! She also said it looks better for wedding hair and I was pretty happy with my hair so I can’t complain!

  16. Love that jump suit, I’ve seen so many cute things on Lulu’s but haven’t taken the plunge yet. Would you say the sizing is more towards juniors or misses? Super jealous of your sleep in morning!! I could so use one of those, but do not see one in my near future!

  17. Love the dress and the jumpsuit! Hot stuff!! I also want to be eating that lobster and filet right now… for breakfast. I’m so happy you took a day off and slept in – you work a lot and deserve a big break! Your hair looks so great and I can’t wait to see what she has in store for your wedding look, it sounds like it will be amazing!!

  18. Sounds like a fab weekend! Love that jump suit on you! Definitely have to wear heels, otherwise I think that they look funny. That gold one is amazing, I want it haha. That sunset is gorgeous too. Since we’re heading to Miami in two weeks, I have some fashion questions. I hope that you don’t mind if ask you a few. Have a great day! :-)

    Sounds like it was a fantastic weekend. Glad date night was fun. Love the Capital Grille. Love your hair, looks great!! Ok that jumpsuit looks amazing on you!! I need to find that ice cream!! Happy Monday.

  20. Now exactly how much do I need to sleep to work on those dark circles?! Braum’s peppermint ice cream sounds good to me!!

  21. My husband LOVES peppermint ice cream! Now you guys need to always celebrate that date as some sort of anniversary!

  23. Great outfits pretty girl. Love that jumpsuit!

  24. Kelly Mock says:

    Happy Anniversary! What a great weekend!

  25. I have to admit, I hate the flavor of peppermint. I think I am the only person in the world who does, but it just doesn’t do anything for me.

  26. You in that jumpsuit is just too much – you look amazing!!! I love it but don’t think I could pull it off!!!! Make sure to pop over to Virginia Sweet today fora great giveaway! xoxo!

  27. I slept in until 9 yesterday and felt ah-mazing! Then I may have fallen back asleep at noon for no reason, whoops. :)

  28. love the new hair! that jumpsuit looks perfect on you – and i’m loving the gold one too! the filet looks too good to be true, and i’m so curious to hear what your favorite peppermint ice cream is! that blue bell sounds pretty yummy!

    your hair looks fabulous, and that jumpsuit looks like it was made for you! i made that shrimp recipe as well, so good! we served it over pasta, even KC loved it. bust seriously shrimp is so freaking expensive, just the plain frozen stuff was twice the amount for less shrimp as 2 packages of shrimp scampi so i just used that and it was amazing.

  31. I love the jumpsuit! Congratulations on having everything all set for the wedding, must be exciting :)

  32. I tried on a dress just like the gold sparkle romper and loved it! It is perfect for New Years, I may go back and get it!

  33. Your hair looks great and date night’s dinner looked delicious!

  34. Hair looks fabulous! I just don’t get to have any minty type of ice cream often enough. It reminds the boyfriend too much of toothpaste and he rebels. Now peanut butter and chocolate ice cream, that’s my bag baby.


  35. You look gorgeous dressed up! I especially love the jumpsuit. I need to go out and try that ice cream pronto, but you will have to share your favorite brand of peppermint ice cream if this one only got a B!

  36. I am not a jumpsuit gal – but that gold one would be super cute for New Year’s!

    OH – I saw Brussels sprouts on the stalk THIS WEEK TOO! And I literally thought, “That’s how they grow?” Not sure how I thought they grew – but seriously, that was NOT my first thought!

  37. The jumpsuit looks great on you. What a beautiful sunset! Hope you enjoyed your “Anniversary” dinner! Haha!

  38. What a lovely weekend. That weather sounds perfect! I love your black dress for date night, too!

  39. Love your jumpsuit and that gold one is definitely fabulous! I am not a huge peppermint ice cream fan, but Blue Bell makes a Christmas cookie one that is disgustingly sweet and we love it :) PS- we slept until 10 am both Saturday and Sunday, it was heavenly!

  40. Meagan says:

    That jumpsuit looks amazing on you!! Sounds like the perfect weekend :)

  41. I’m dying over that jumpsuit – I wish I did fancy things for new years that require fancy sparkly clothes because I loooove them, but it never ends up happening. Looks like a lovely weekend!

  42. Jamie says:

    What a gorgeous sunset!

  43. Fun weekend! Great pictures. That jumpsuit looks awesome on you!

  44. Emily says:

    Looks like an amazing weekend!! I saw those brussel sprouts at TJ’s last week and thought the same thing!! I had no clue lol

  45. FL weather IS gorgeous. when i stepped off that plane in toronto, it was a blustery 10C BRRRR! this morning it was 3C! #RAGE.

  46. Erin LFF says:

    Definitely sounds like one heckuva’ weekend! :) Sometimes you need those days where you sleep in ridiculously late. I think the dark circles under my eyes are begging for one of those soon ;)

  47. Love the more blonde version of you! So much good food. I need those Brussels Sprouts if for nothing else than blowing Trey’s mind haha.

  48. Sounds like an amazing weekend, and yes Florida is beautiful! I’ve never been happier since moving down here :-D

  49. Oooooh ice cream…. how I miss it! Haha! I’ve never had peppermint ice cream though. That sunset is beautiful! You look great in both the dress and romper! That is too funny about the restaurant thinking you were celebrating your anniversary! Haha! Oh and lastly… I love your hair! :)

  50. Haha happy anniversary ;) Love your additions to Biana’s saganaki… I think I need to try it over cous cous next time, too!

  51. You are always dressed so cute!!! And your filet and lobster looks so good. So good!!!

    I saw that Peppermint Bark ice cream picture before I read what you said about it. Shows you what distracts me, right? I am glad to hear it was a B. I wont purchase anything like that unless it is an A! Not worth the calories to me. And now I really want Mint Chocolate Chip!!!!

    have a great week!

  52. Maggie says:

    It sounds like your weekend was a total win! I don’t even know where to begin! I am glad yall just went with the anniversary thing at dinner – that is awesome! The romper thing is totally working out for you – you look amazing. I would absolutely wear that sparkle one for NYE!! Happy Monday! :)


  53. Teh Megan says:

    I recently learned about brussel sprouts on a stalk! I was so impressed. A lady suggested cooking bacon in the oven, then taking the bacon off the cookie sheet, break the sprouts off the stalk and cut them in half, then cook them on the bacon grease until they are tender. worth EVERY.SINGLE. calorie.

  54. Meghan says:

    Your hair looks amazing!! Also, don’t you love hair girls who just get it? I just walk in to mine and she just does whatever she thinks will look the best. Also, you look awesome! Congratulations on having everything all nailed down! :) xo

  55. Brianne says:

    Bluebell is by far the best ice cream I’ve ever had. I don’t know what I’m going to do when I move back to MN.

  56. We had such gorgeous weather over the weekend too and I swear it makes everything that much better! It looks like you guys had a great weekend- love your new jumpsuit and that gold romper would be so cute for New Years! Ahhh peppermint ice cream- YUM!

  57. What a great weekend! Loving your gorgeous weather…fortunately I was in some myself this past weekend but came back to a semi-cold Omaha…boo.

    I love that jumpsuit on you! I have tried rompers and jumpsuits and something doesn’t suit me….maybe it’s the fact that I need a boo-tay. I got my dad’s butt and it’s not awesome =)

    Congrats on your anniversary…errrr getting stuff done for your wedding! =)
