Weekending – Rainy Bloggers Meetup

Happy Monday.  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  It was pretty rainy and soggy this past weekend with a few sunny patches that did peak through.  I have been using Snapchat so much recently that I haven’t been taking as many pictures on my iPhone.  It is so much fun these quick real snaps of life. Follow me @meetatthebarre, I promise there will be lots of great music and food videos.  Let’s get right into the weekend updates.  Linking up with Biana.

I’m sure you all know by now I am not a huge drinker but we did participate in a Golf themed pub crawl on Friday night.  When I say crawl, I mean it was pouring rain out so we maybe switched to one place during the whole time.  It was so fun to catch up with friends and also to see how grown men take themed parties still very seriously even into their 30’s.  No pics, only snaps.  Follow me @meetatthebarre.


Saturday I was up bright and early to meet a few local and visiting bloggers.  It was pouring out but it was an excuse to pull out the Hunter boots.  We met at Oxford Exchange over in Tampa.  Seriously such a beautiful spot for coffee, food, and eclectic finds.  However, I am very disappointed they have no wifi for their patrons.  I am going to pay $6 for a coffee, that at least allots me 30 minutes of public wifi am I right?  I did snag some beautiful pictures at least.

Sunday we headed over to one of our favorite breakfast spots Roux.  Here is the newest menu they just unveiled.

We are going to New Orleans in October and every time we visit it gets me so excited out our upcoming NOLA trip.

The rest of the weekend was spent catching up on work and staying out of the rain.  I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Nothing like ending the weekend with a regram from the Zoe Report.  Day made!  Did you check out my previous review of the Zoe Report Box of Style?  Check it here.

  1. It was such a rainy weekend but I guess one every once in awhile isn’t such a bad thing, right? That coffee shop looks amazing! I am obsessed with the black and white floors! And the food at Roux looks delicious! Happy Monday!

  2. I can’t wait for NOLA…well that is if we can get tickets for the game!! The oxford exchange sounds like an incredible spot – I love the decor and it makes me want to come visit you even more!!! Hope you have a great Monday love! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    Glad you made the rainy weekend a fun one! The blogger meet up sounds like fun and that menu is amazing! NOLA is one of the best cities out there, have you eaten at Armaunds? SO DELICIOUS and so NOLA! Have a fabulous Monday, gorgeous!

  4. Jenn says:

    Your snaps from this weekend had me drooling–all of the food looked so yum!
    That restaurant looks super cool! Love the decor. And I love a good blogger meet up! :)

  5. It was so much fun getting to meet you this weekend! It’s pretty cool to meet someone in real life after following their blog and working together for several months. It doesn’t feel like meeting a stranger! Great suggestion for the Oxford Exchange, too! It was a very photogenic place, which is perfect for a blogger meet up. Definitely disappointed about the wifi, too! I guess it will just have to be a meet up place for me and not a place to go work.

  6. You did grab some great pics! That is unfortunate they didn’t offer wi-fi. It’s crazy how much we expect/rely on that now.

  7. Was it cool enough to wear pants and long sleeves?! OMG, I don’t remember what anything below 95 feels like… Anyway, so great you got to meet up with bloggers but seriously, what coffee shop doesn’t have wifi?! Those two go hand in hand! Ahhhh, NOLA. I would move there so, so fast if we ever got the chance. I could live off Creole/Cajun food for the rest of my life and be fat and happy :)

  8. Jaelan says:

    I seriously loved following your snaps this weekend. Snapchat is easily becoming my favorite social media!

  9. Nikki says:

    I loved getting a peek inside your weekend with snapchat! That food looks seriously amazing and that menu screams NOLA, you’re going to have so much fun and eat soooo much good food!! How cool about getting regrammed, but not cool about the no public wifi thing, I hate when places don’t do that especially if you are a paying customer!

  10. christina says:

    that place looks so neat! i want the fries. and the salad. : ) do i spy bacon?

  11. Girl you know how excited I am over the Zoe shoutout!! And the Oxford Exchange looks like my kind of heaven! I would totally splurge on that coffee for that view. And maybe single guys? Maybe? I’m so selfish haha.

    Also give me those grilled oysters please!

    Oxford Exchange looks like such a fun spot to enjoy. Low key catch up weekends are some of my favorite sometimes! Hopefully things are a bit dryer down there today..

  13. Owen Davis says:

    Loved all your snaps this weekend!!! Happy Monday love!

  14. Lindsay says:

    Seriously dying over your RZ mention!! I need to order the next box, it looks too good!

  15. Jenny says:

    I haven’t made it down to the Oxford Exchange but it’s on my to-do list! I am surprised that they don’t offer WiFi. That’s pretty lousy.

  16. That coffee shop looks amazing! I am drooling over those oysters. We polished off a dozen last week and I’m craving more. =)

  17. Bummed I missed this meet up so close by! I work out of the OE Commerce club but didn’t go in over this weekend.. I LOVE the decor and am always super inspired when I am there! Next time I would love to go with you ladies!!

  18. julie says:

    that oxford exchange looks so peaceful!

  19. What a cute meetup spot! ANY excuse to wear the Hunters and I’m in, so agreed! Hopefully you don’t need them here in a few weeks (and at the least just pack umbrellas for our often mid-afternoon 20 minute downpours). Great weekend, girl!

  20. We got rained out for most of the weekend too. Looks like a fun spot to meet up with friends/bloggers. Congrats on the repost!

  21. Stacy G says:

    Sounds like a fun weekend! I need to get with it and make a snapchat. Although I probably have enough distractions already! lol Happy Monday! xo

  22. A ZR mention?! Dead! Love Rachel Zoe! Great weekend! I hope the rain slows down soon too but doesn’t look like it for the next few days :(

  23. Amanda says:

    Fun weekend – it rained a lot down here too. I think most of Southern FL was rainy. That Oxford place looks so pretty and brunch sounds delish!

  24. Lindsay says:

    I just love your weekend! Can’t wait to hear about your NOLA trip, I’ve always wanted to go just for a weekend even so I would love some recommendations. I’ve really been thinking of getting the zoe box and reading you got it makes me want it even more.

    not a mom

  25. Congrats on the regram, such a beautiful pic that had to be shared! And that coffee shop looks amazing, such a neat spot for a bloggy meet up. But boooo to no free wifi, that’s ridiculous! And of course I just added you on snap, it’s my new favorite social media (time waster).

    Cheers to a fabulous week <3

  26. Darcy says:

    That oxford exchange looks beautiful! Hope you have a good week!

  27. That coffee shop looks like somewhere I would set up shop and never leave. Gorgeous pictures ! And your fashion game is strong – it’s no wonder the Zoe Report took notice :)
