Weekending – Getting Wiggy With It

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.
Oh Monday raise your hand if you could take one more weekend days.  I am so not ready to tackle another week.  This was a jam packed weekend for sure!  Linking up with Biana and Meghan.
Friday after work I was a possessed woman and had a total itch to go for a run.  I mean with these views honestly.
I haven’t run in forever but did just about 4 miles with under 10 minute miles.  Not crazy fast but I was impressed with the fact I didn’t stop the whole time.  Barre really gives you strong legs.
Mark is getting really good at cooking these steaks especially with the new cast iron pan I got him.  Sear them on high for 1 minute each side and then right into a 400 degree oven for 5 minutes.  They were perfect.
Saturday I was up bright and early to get a barre class in.
We went to go look at a house that was absolutely terrible but at least it was an excuse to hang with my brother and check out this amazing 4 Rivers smokehouse.
Of course we left with a little goodie from the bakery.  See it’s all about choices.  I got my brisket over salad so I could have dessert.  Makes total sense right?
Followed by a wig party with my bridesmaids.  At least I know how I look as a mermaid.  It was such a blast being out in my old stomping ground all incognito.
I also totally know what I should do with my hair after the Wedding.  Totally used this self tanner.  In love.  Natural color, no streaks and the smell when the color developed was pretty minimal.  What do you think of this fantastic 70’s afro puff??
It was a fun one for sure.
Sunday was spent catching up on life and doing seating arrangements.  It was way harder then I would have thought let me tell you.  Did y’all have a great weekend?  Hope you have a fabulous day! 11 more days!  xoxoxoxo

    A wig party looks like so much fun! You’ve got the mermaid look down for sure!

    When I went to Vegas a few years ago there was a bachelorette party party staying in our hotel and everyday they wore a different wig in bright neon colors, it looked like such a blast!

    I LOOOOOVE 4Rivers! The wedding I went to on Saturday was catered by them and it was amazing. Love the long red mermaid hair, how fun! Going out incognito is such a blast! I always feel so different when I rock the bangs so I can’t even imagine a totally different hair color! Happy Monday love!

    oh my gosh it looks like you guys had an absolute blast on Saturday night–you could definitely be a mermaid in another life! lol
    Some of the first few houses we looked at were abysmal to say the least….so don’t get discouraged :) Go eat a cupcake instead haha.
    Hope you’re recovered from your weekend fun!

    Oh my gosh, how fun is that party? Love it!!! Your run looks incredible – maybe I’d be a runner if I had those views! ;) Happy Monday, lady!

  7. February 9, 2015 / 12:28 PM

    Yay for 4 miles! I’m impressed with your time!! What a fun idea for a party! Wigs make everything extra crazy fun, am I right? haha

  8. February 9, 2015 / 12:57 PM

    What an awesome weekend! Those wigs are hilarious!! You look great as a red head, I think you should consider a permanent change ;)

  9. February 9, 2015 / 1:29 PM

    A wig party?! That is so genius and fun! You seriously do look like Ariel with that red wig on. 11 days to go! Happy Monday!

  12. February 9, 2015 / 2:10 PM

    Oh Marks steaks look so good, but I told you this before! I would want to run with those views too!! And a wig party with bridesmaids?? sooooo cute!! Glad you had a great weekend. I feel like Im counting down with you. Its under two weeks now right? Have a blast in these two weeks and dont get stressed out. Enjoy the moments girl. :D

  13. February 9, 2015 / 2:14 PM

    Hahaha! Looks like you had a really great weekend. I need some brisket right now. YUM.

  14. February 9, 2015 / 2:16 PM

    Love that quote at the top so much!! Looks like your bachelorette was super fun! Your side of veggies looks delish and that self tanner is my absolute favorite! I am lost without it. xo

    Wig party is such a fun idea! Brisket salad is really what I have my eyes on though! <3! Hope you have a great week!

  17. February 9, 2015 / 2:41 PM

    Such a good weekend!! So awesome that you were able to run so far! Your night out with the girls sounds like a blast!!

  18. February 9, 2015 / 2:42 PM

    Girl, I wouldn’t go dying your hair Snooki-red, like that wig… Let’s just say you make an adorable blonde!

    I totally do the same thing with food. Gimme the salad so that I can enjoy some wine! Calorie tradeoffs, FTW.

  19. February 9, 2015 / 2:45 PM

    The wig party looks like so much fun! Haha, I love any excuse to put on a costume.

  20. February 9, 2015 / 2:47 PM

    I love the wig party, such a fun idea!! Seating charts are no joke! I think I spent more time on that than anything else wedding-related!

  21. February 9, 2015 / 3:06 PM

    Love that you guys had a wig party, awesome! And your salad for dessert is totally justifiable! Seating charts are hard, but at the end of the day don’t sweat it too much people will deal!

  22. February 9, 2015 / 3:23 PM

    haha you really rock the wig!! and that’s so nice to have a guy around that can cook!! makes all the difference :)

  23. February 9, 2015 / 3:30 PM

    That is a great time for a run, I think! Especially if it is not something you normally do… and you didn’t stop! Way to go, girl!

    LOVE the wigs. That is amazing.

  24. February 9, 2015 / 4:05 PM

    omg the wigs are hysterical. rocking the red sister!! hahaah you were a possessed woman who went for a run. i totally get that…like ew why do i suddenly want to do this?

  25. February 9, 2015 / 4:17 PM

    I love your outfit for the wig party. I need to make steak more often…I got a cast iron pan for that reason & have used it 0 times.

  26. February 9, 2015 / 4:29 PM

    What a fun weekend! Love the wigs!! I so need to get a cast iron pan!! I always get a salad so that I can have desert!! Happy Monday!!

  27. February 9, 2015 / 4:42 PM

    I never would have thought to do a wig party/outing! Fun! That food looks awesome and hello yummy cupcakes!
    Glad you had a great weekend girl!

  28. February 9, 2015 / 4:51 PM

    Did a 4Rivers just open in your area? I work right by the original one and LOVE their BBQ but the line is usually wrapped around the building. Glad you had a blast on your bachelorette!! The final countdown!!

  29. February 9, 2015 / 5:16 PM

    Stop- y’all are so cute!! I went on a wedding cruise with friends and the bride is known to wear wigs to switch up her look. So one of the wigs came on the trip and one day/night of the cruise we all had to wear it, talk about some silly pictures! I’m so, so excited for you that the big day is so close!

    Ahhhh 11 more days, you’re sooo close gurlie! And 4 Rivers?! One of my absolute favs, and yes you must stop in their sweet shop as well, it’s kinda a package deal :)

  31. February 9, 2015 / 5:45 PM

    Wig party! haha You should for sure rock the afro when this wedding wraps up. (; Totally kidding btw. Your hair is beautiful.

  32. February 9, 2015 / 5:47 PM

    way to go on your run girl! thats awesome. those steaks look amazing, and a wig party – hilarious and you look totally awesome!

  33. February 9, 2015 / 5:55 PM

    What a fun weekend! A good steak is always so nice, but that veggie mix looks amazing! I’m wondering why I’ve never thought to put those all together before! What a fun night with your bridesmaids- so close to your wedding!

  34. February 9, 2015 / 6:02 PM

    I had 4 Rivers a few weeks ago for the first time, and the 50 minute wait was worth it!! I also had steak and brussels on Friday, how funny. Happy house hunting, sometimes it depressed the heck out of me. LOL

  35. February 9, 2015 / 6:13 PM

    Oh my gosh a wig party is a spectacular idea! You definitely look like a mermaid in that red wig too. Look at your fiancé and his cooking skills! Very impressive!! I’m glad that you had a fun weekend, and I hope that you are having a good day today too. :-)

  36. February 9, 2015 / 6:57 PM

    Glad you had a fun weekend! LOVE the idea of a wig party – I think I need to plan one of those :) And yes, dinner over salad so you can get dessert makes total sense! Girl math!

  37. February 9, 2015 / 7:07 PM

    Hah you looked awesome in the red hair! It makes me want to go all incognito at some point soon. I’ve got to try steaks out in the oven asap! And then top them with basil butter (#divine).

  38. February 9, 2015 / 8:39 PM

    Those wigs! lol!!! You haven’t run in awhile and you did 4 miles without stopping and under 10 min/mile? Don’t even talk to me right now. :P All of your food looks amazing and so now I am starving again even though I had lunch like 2 hours ago. And umm 11 days?!?!

  39. February 9, 2015 / 9:25 PM

    I love the wigs! Hilarious!!! I wish I would get the itch to run….I really want to try a barre class….I just wish I was brave enough!

  40. February 9, 2015 / 9:57 PM

    Oh my gosh, the wigs! LOVE it! You know, now that you mention it… I’ve recently thought a few times how running feels different to me lately, better & easier. Must be the barre :) I’m so excited for the Love Your Body class this weekend!

  41. February 9, 2015 / 10:11 PM

    Hahaha that wig party sounds like a blast! Oooo we have a 4 Rivers here but I haven’t tried it yet, it looks so yummy!

  42. February 9, 2015 / 10:32 PM

    You look AMAZING as a redhead! I’m dying for that steak and brussel sprouts too! I am seriously so excited about your big day! Cannot believe it’s so close! Ek! xo

  43. February 9, 2015 / 11:02 PM

    Looks like you had a great weekend! I want to start running again but I haven’t done so. Those steaks look absolutely delicious!

  44. February 10, 2015 / 12:52 AM

    the wig idea is HILARIOUS! oh and we cooked our steaks this way tonight because i read your blog this morning & it inspired me to try it. delish!

  45. February 10, 2015 / 1:35 AM

    love the wig party! how fun is that?? sounds like a good weekend and i hear you on needing one more day – how about we have every monday off! ha. i bet you’re just totally slammed bc of the wedding soon!! ahh!! :)


  46. February 10, 2015 / 2:02 AM

    The wig party sounds like such a blast!! You look great as a redhead!

  47. February 10, 2015 / 3:07 AM

    A wig party?! Now that sounds like fun! I could totally use another day for the weekend, 2 days is just not enough!

  48. February 10, 2015 / 10:30 AM

    The seating chart was easily the most frustrating part of our wedding. Hope it’s behind you now and you can enjoy the last couple days! And I love the mermaid look! So much fun!

  49. February 10, 2015 / 4:14 PM

    omg that wig party is hilarious! how have I never heard of this before?? EEEP you’re getting married so soon!

  50. February 11, 2015 / 3:53 PM

    Haha love the idea of a wig party and your steak dinner looks amazing! Go Mark!! Food always tastes so good in cast iron pans!

  51. February 24, 2015 / 11:55 PM

    Geez, I have so many unread posts from your page! I think half my unread newsfeeds are yours! haha! Just kidding! Love the wigs! Looks like a great time! :)

  52. February 24, 2015 / 11:56 PM
