Weekending – The One Filled With Red & Pink

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.
Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend eating tons of good food, desserts and being spoiled accordingly.  I have been making lists, checking off lists then making new lists on top of the old lists.  I had a little mental attack when I found my wifey tee buried in my closet over the weekend.  If I forgot about that what else have I glazed over?  So my new lists are even more specific even down to the underwear for the days……too much?  This week I will try to be as present as possible but we are down to that final countdown so going crazy is a little understatement.  I will have my Friday Favorites up this week so don’t worry about that ;-)  Linking up with Biana and Meghan!
We started off the weekend by Thursday night heading to dinner to our rehearsal dinner spot to finalize all the last minute details.  The view really doesn’t get any better than this.  Not one single filter applied.  Just gorgeous Florida living.
If you follow me on Instagram you may have already seen this but this year I was not swooning over chocolates and flowers.  I know I am marrying my complete soul mate when he went to 10….yes 10….different stores and ended up in quite an interesting area of town at a grocery store where he bought every single pack they had left.  I had told them they were out because “the blogging land already had photo evidence” and that was his assignment.  Let me tell you something about these….they are like a third of the size of the regular Oreo packs.  Total scam.  It’s like how the girl scout cookies keep on getting smaller and smaller every year.  
For everyone who has asked.  Yes.  They live up to the hype.  The cream cheese frosting is the most addicting thing ever.  I had to hide them because that wedding dress is coming at me in 4 days.

Friday night we headed over to our favorite sushi place.  Local peeps.  I would have never found this place Grand Siam until our waiter from Sushi Alive told us this is where he eats.  The thai food is amazing.  They also have happy hour that starts at 8pm, half off sushi and apps, plus 2 for 1 drinks.  They actually just opened up another location in the old Rack spot on Platt in Soho.  It is called the Hideaway.  I definitely need to check that out the next time I’m on that side of the bridge.  The sushi was so good on Friday.
Saturday I met my one girlfriend and bridesmaid for a bikram yoga class.  That was like 2 hours of my life gone.  It was a good sweat but I need a little pumping jams during my workouts that is for sure.  It was an incredible stretch.
Thank goodness I did get that sweat out because this was the dinner cooked by Mark on Valentine’s night.  Nailed the lobster tails.  Cooked to perfection.  Cut up the back with kitchen shears, pull out the meat and place on top of the shell.  Truffle olive oil from trader joe’s, salt and pepper.  Bake 15 mins at 400 degrees.  Pull out add butter, then broil for 2 minutes on high.  The best ever.
Sunday was spent trying to find a good place for my full length to show you some of my new Spring finds that have been burning a hole in my closet to get out and see the light of day.  Like seriously this romper is perfection.  Silky material that doesn’t wrinkle and looks way more expensive then $25.  I insist you get it.  I got a small but a medium probably would have been fine with the length of the shorts.  It would look so fab with black tights as well.
Also scooped up these gems at the Nordstrom sale.  Did you check it out they had amazing prices!  
Did you have a nice Valentine’s weekend?  The wedding week has officially begun!  xoxoxo

    YAY for this week!!!!! so excited for you. you look adorable in that romper and i’d prance around in that thing if i had temperatures like yours. unfortunately, it’s been like, minus 20-something for the past few days. don’t even get me started about “wind chill’.

  4. February 16, 2015 / 11:49 AM

    Happy wedding week! So exciting and can’t wait to see all the details!! Looks like a fab weekend…loving that you got spoiled with Oreos (yum!) and that great vday dinner!

  9. February 16, 2015 / 1:45 PM

    So exciting!! I don’t blame you for making a bunch of lists, I would be doing the same! LOL that is hilarious about the search for RV oreos and so sweet of him! I totally agree about the size of the package, I was a little let down by that but it’s probably a good thing in the end, haha! They are really good! That dinner he made looks fabulous!!

  10. February 16, 2015 / 1:50 PM

    Love that romper!!! And I have my whole office addicted to those red velvet Oreos!!

  11. February 16, 2015 / 1:57 PM

    I am so afraid to try the red velvet oreos…I might get addicted =P That view is amazing too!

  12. February 16, 2015 / 2:00 PM

    Bikram yoga is garbage. You needed you a nice vinyasa flow class, to get the jams and the calories burned off! That romper is adorable. I wish tall people could pull them off. But the shorts would look to have about 2 inch inseams on me, and go all sorts of places they shouldn’t. Life is hard.

  13. February 16, 2015 / 2:02 PM

    Aaaaaahhhh! It’s wedding week! How EXCITING! I hope your Instagram like crazy until you’re able to share wedding details on the blog ;)
    What a great weekend, girl! Good luck with your lists :) Try not to stress too much! Enjoy this week… best week of your life!

  14. February 16, 2015 / 2:22 PM

    I can’t believe you’re getting married this week!!!! Hooray! Um, Mark is quite the cook and that romper is perfection. I must have it. Happy Monday!

  15. February 16, 2015 / 2:42 PM

    Congrats on the upcoming nuptials. The best advice I would give is something a friend told me years ago when I got married (the first time…yeah, it didn’t work out but the second one is a keeper). Be sure to have one friend or family member grab you about ever 30 minutes so you can stop and really take in everything going on around you. I would have totally missed 200 people descending on a huge dessert table (I’m talking 40 feet) had I not done this. It was quite a scene, one that the photographer missed so I’m glad I was there to witness it. Have fun enjoying every moment!!!!

  16. February 16, 2015 / 2:44 PM

    Love the Kendra Scott earrings ;) The cookies look delis.. I need to try them
    Happy Monday!!! I found your link on the link up Chelsea @ thewilliamsjourney1.blogspot.com

  17. February 16, 2015 / 2:45 PM

    So exciting! The final countdown is on. Good luck with the lists. Try to relax and have fun and know that everything might not go perfect but the important part is you and your husband celebrating your love! Easier said than done, yes, but it will all work out! Umm your dinner looks amazing and now lunch time needs to hurry up and get here :) Winks and Eyerolls

  18. February 16, 2015 / 2:50 PM

    i need to go find my romper. and wear it in my house bc it’s never going to be warm here again haha. sooo i love mark, based on that oreo picture alone. sooo they live up to the hype? great. i need them. post whole30 they’re going to be thrown into my mouth.

  19. February 16, 2015 / 2:53 PM

    Happy hour that starts at 8pm is my kind of place! I need to go…kudos to Mark on Oreos AND lobster! YUM!!

  20. February 16, 2015 / 2:54 PM

    Ahhhh I love that view, it’s so gorgeous! Happy WEDDING WEEK! I hope you can really enjoy this week and not have to go through too much stress.

  21. February 16, 2015 / 2:57 PM

    Is the romper navy or back? My daughter is looking for a navy one. I got new jewels this weekend too. BIG blitzy gemstones from Charming Charlies that were 2 for $4.99!

  22. February 16, 2015 / 3:11 PM

    GIRLFRIEND!! You’re getting married this weekend!!! How freaking exciting! And no–I don’t think the lists are too much! We had our wedding, reception, honeymoon and moving to a different state all within 7 days of each other…so not only was I dealing with last minute wedding details and packing for a honeymoon–I was also having to pack pack and make sure all to leave out all the things I needed up UNTIL the wedding–and then be sure that those things got collected/washed/packed before the move!! It was seriously INSANITY! You’e got this! And it’ll be SO MUC HFUN! Can’t wait to hear all about it!

  23. February 16, 2015 / 3:26 PM

    I need to get my hands on some of those Oreos! I doubt they’re available in Canada though, Canada always misses out on the best food flavours!

  24. February 16, 2015 / 3:32 PM

    LOVE those earrings. I’m totally jealous.

    IT’S WEDDING WEEEEEEK! Oh my goodness. This makes me giddy for you. Have such a wonderful week and try to slow down to enjoy it!

  25. February 16, 2015 / 3:34 PM

    Those lobster tails look amazing!! Ahh, so exciting that it is wedding week!!!!!!

  28. February 16, 2015 / 5:27 PM

    Wedding week! It will fly by, so take in as much as you can!
    This post makes me want to go shopping for clothes and go to my fave sushi place. The -9 degree wind chill is keeping that from happening!

  29. February 16, 2015 / 5:47 PM

    That lobster looks so so good! It’s wedding week! YAY!

  30. February 16, 2015 / 5:50 PM

    That man is your ride or die with the effort he put into those oreos! :):) Have an amazing week lady!

  31. February 16, 2015 / 5:50 PM

    That food all looks delicious, love those earrings, and that view is beautiful. Yay to it being wedding week too!!! :-)

  32. February 16, 2015 / 6:19 PM

    I love that romper! And what a gorgeous view. This is now like the millionth time I’ve had these red velvet oreos brought to my attention; I really MUST track them down!

  33. February 16, 2015 / 6:24 PM

    4 days so exciting!!! Those Red Velvet Oreos are so amazing! Total scam as you said but still amazing!

  34. February 16, 2015 / 6:33 PM

    Haha the red velvet oreos!! They are sooo good. I was seriously angry at first when I saw how much smaller the package is than the regular kind lol! The romper is adorbs. You will be proud to hear I just scored flipflop, 6 tops and a dress at old nacy for $23 on clearance. Amazing right? lol xo

  35. February 16, 2015 / 7:42 PM

    That view! So pretty! I am so excited for you!!!! I bet this week is just going to fly by with everything going on!

    That romper looks so cute on you. And how awesome that you got all those RV Oreos!!! We finished our bag last week and I really want another. Luckily Target doesn’t sell them so I wasn’t tempted. Hope you have a great week!

  36. February 16, 2015 / 7:56 PM

    Your post title totally has me wanting to curl up on the couch and binge watch old Friends episodes on Netflix. (; When I mean curl I mean with my fuzziest socks in my thickest slippers under my heated blanket. Seriously when is Romper weather going to be in Ohio?!

  37. February 16, 2015 / 8:16 PM

    Happy wedding week pretty lady!! I am literally so excited for you!! Love that cute romper and you can never go wrong with KS earrings!

  38. February 16, 2015 / 8:58 PM

    The final countdown, how exciting, have a happy wedding week!

  39. February 16, 2015 / 9:05 PM

    Sounds like you had an amazing V-day and weekend! The sushi has me drooling and you look so great in the romper!!

  40. February 16, 2015 / 9:16 PM

    What a perfect weekend! I had a moment like you where I made the most specific list of my life. I recently came across it and was a little embarrassed, but I didn’t forget anything for the wedding or for our honeymoon. That romper looks AMAZING on you. I am so so so ready to see your wedding pictures! xoxo

  41. February 16, 2015 / 9:59 PM

    Such a great weekend! The food looks just as amazing as the romper on you! XO

    Your legs are unreal, girlfriend – that romper is PERFECTION on you! (Red velvet Oreos don’t count as calories, especially during Valentine’s week – just FYI).
    I am SO EXCITED for you! I can’t wait to see all the pictures, everything. You are going to be the most drop dead gorgeous bride.
    Also, I am so jealous of that sushi place – it looks unreal. Always funny when waiters give recommendations for OTHER places with the same type of food. Looks like a major winner.
    Enjoy yourself this week, gorgeous! xo

  43. February 17, 2015 / 12:46 AM

    Ahhhh happy wedding week gurlie! You look amazing in that romper and I’m totally swooning over those KS earrings!

  44. February 17, 2015 / 2:45 AM

    YAYAYAYYY you’re getting married ON FRIDAY!!! How excited are you?!?! I cannot wait to read all about it :) Seriously, you had such a great weekend, and that romper is on point!

  45. February 17, 2015 / 3:39 AM

    such beautiful photos! love the earrings!

  46. February 17, 2015 / 12:38 PM

    I’m so excited for you! I hope the weather is perfect. That sushi looks delish. I went to a Bikram class last week for the first time in a long time. I could not believe how hot it was and how sweaty I was!

  47. February 17, 2015 / 1:51 PM

    How cute are you?? Love the outfit! Sounds like the perfect pre-wedding weekend!!! So excited for you!!!!!!!!!!

  48. February 17, 2015 / 2:02 PM

    ah those earrings are so gorgeous! and that romper, totes cute.
    i’m so excited for you, your wedding is so soon!! i am not a fan of red velvet but you are making me want to try those oreos! yum! and i love my yoga, i did bikram for a couple of years actually, but i much prefer something faster paced and pumping to sweat, and then use yoga to stretch and relax, you know?

  49. February 17, 2015 / 3:27 PM

    Looks like you had a fabulous Valentine’s weekend, that view is killer. And what a man to stock up on those Oreo’s for you! Loving those earrings!

  50. February 17, 2015 / 4:55 PM

    Holy cow that Valentine’s dinner looks amazing! Yum! I so wish you hadn’t posted that photo on Insta, and now here. I have been avoiding eye contact with those Oreos at the store the last few weeks. I may break down a get a pack tonight. Yes, our store still has some left. Love that view too!

  51. February 17, 2015 / 5:09 PM

    Countdown to wedding! How exciting!! I’m totally with you on the yoga, I need some jams or something to keep me interested and engaged. Anytime I do yoga I just think about all of the other things I could be doing.

  52. February 17, 2015 / 7:01 PM

    so, so sweet of Mark! I can’t believe he bought so many packs :) and girl, that view is incredible! I’m super impressed you are posting at all this week…you rock!

  53. February 18, 2015 / 3:15 AM

    Love the romper and the earrings but can we talk about Mark schlepping to 10 stores for oreos?? Loves it!!! Im so excited for you that Friday is the big day!

  54. February 22, 2015 / 1:52 PM

    I noticed that the red velvet Oreo packs were smaller, too! RUDE! Now that the wedding dress has come at you, does that mean you can eat them ALL? I will help! :)

  55. February 25, 2015 / 12:01 AM

    Girl! Your killing me with this cooking shit by Mark! I can’t handle it! What a man! Love that first picture of the FL sky/water! So pretty! Definitely love that romper and earrings too!
