Weekend Roundup

Happy Monday.  I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend.  They really go by way too fast right?  Has anyone else gotten sucked into Orange is the New Black latest season yet?  We started it on Saturday and finished it on Sunday night.  Talk about binge watching!  I have a photo dump coming up you.  I have been majorly slacking on my weekend updates so here is a quick life catch up. Linking up with Biana.


Going to the Margarita Festival in Tampa

Any excuse to listen to live music with an adult bevs is a great weekend outing for me.  Blues Traveler was such a fun way to end the Tampa Margarita Fest.  I’m not a huge tequila fan but they also had beer in the VIP tent.  There was definitely a great turn out for the event and we were able to escape the rain storms.  I didn’t have to put any money onto my bands but I did see the long lines throughout to “reload” the bands.  I heard after the fact there was some unhappy patrons with that system.  I will say the tent was crowded.  We ended up hanging outside of it with friends more and catching the live bands.  My previous wedding DJ was an act, which didn’t make me happy but luckily it was a short set.

I hope everyone had a great weekend.  The start of the Summer has been a little crazy for me at work and hopefully it will be slowing down soon.  Also, a few long weekend vacations are on the horizon.  I really need a little bit of R&R.  Let’s power this Monday

  12. Rebecca Jo says:

    OK – so random question – since I see your amazing pictures you take out at events & in places, I have to know – what kind of camera bag are you carrying? I’m trying to carry my camera more & can’t find a good stylish camera bag that isn’t CRAZY priced. Just curious what you carry :)

  13. I haven’t finished last season of OITNB, need to get on it! Oh man do I want a peach cobbler margarita! I hear you on the crazy, I have so much to do before I leave for Orlando and so much to do next weekend before I leave again for my family vacation. And then I am moving! I need a break! Power on Monday!!

  14. Owen Davis says:

    Those oysters omgggg give me! And that skirt is just perfect. I love how you styled it… I would have never thought doing chambray with it but it looks awesome! xo

  15. Darcy says:

    I’m with ya on pockets! If a dress has pockets, I want it like 100 times more.

  16. That brunch spot is lovely! And a margarita festival?! That sounds like heaven!

  17. christina says:

    i want a peach cobbler margarita!! that brunch spot looks awesome!

  18. I wanted to go to the Margarita Fest this year but we were in Islamorada so I didn’t make it. Not that I’m complaining about that haha! And loving that chambray top, so cute! Those mules look so comfy too! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  19. Christina says:

    A margarita festival?? Sign me up! Brunch looks delicious too – a great combo of weekend events!

  20. That margarita festival sounds like such a blast! And I’m totally with you on any dress or skirt that has pockets! They’re just so comfortable and you can feel dressed up yet casual at the same time!

  21. The margarita fest looks like a great turnout. We have one here in Orlando too but I don’t know how well I’ll do with tequila in this hot sun. Wine and beer festivals I can handle. lol Your brunch spot sounds delicious and I love places that serve fresh oysters.

  22. Kayla MKOY says:

    That festival looks amazing! Girl, I’m totally with you! Pockets are everything when it comes to picking out an outfit, ha! Yours is too cute! I couldn’t pull something like that off!! ;)

  23. Ashley says:

    Atlanta does similar festivals and I’ve heard the same issue about re-loading bands. Such a bummer too! That mango jalapeño margarita sounds right up my alley!

  24. Oh man, Amanda. These photos are SO good!! Love the outfit too. It’s perfect for a bit of summer and margaritas <3

  25. Jaelan says:

    It’s official. I need that bag!

    Also, I need to get out to a festival this summer.

  26. We started OITNB on Sat too but just got one episode in before Netflix went all cray cray with the load of people trying to watch it… So we have the rest of the season to finish on random nights and I’m so excited. Fav show, for sure! I’m not a hard liquor fan either, I can stomach about one marg before it’s just too much, but that looks like a super fun event to get to hang out at!

  27. That margarita festival looks like so much fun, love how we have so many fun festivals here in the sunshine state year round! I started the new season of OITNB, but only got through 3 episodes so far. Can’t wait to binge watch the rest, as it’s already off to a better start than last year’s season :)

    I need to catch up on OITNB! I’m behind. And that margarita festival sounds awesome!

  29. Lindsay says:

    That brunch spot looks divine, and I’m loving your weekend outfit. I started watching OITNB last weekend and hope to finish it soon : )

  30. Obbbsessed with that skirt – and the whole outfit – so bummed that it’s sold out!! Glad you guys have been getting in lots of fun even though work has been crazy! Hope it slows down for ya soon!

  31. I completely forgot that OITNB is out again! It is so addicting! So just call off all to-do list items for me for the next two days while I binge watch ;) that purse is so amazing–I have to go check it out. Of course, I am not sure if would work for my Mary Poppins size schlepping I do on the regular. And a margarita and tequila party? That sounds like an amazing and dangerous idea for me. I am not a big drink person–I drink red wine and margaritas but I LOVE margaritas ;) Just ask Evan… Glad you had a great weekend–you deserve it!

  32. Rachel says:

    I get so jealous every time you say you are going to a margarita festival! How you pick beer over tequila I will never understand but, we can still be friends ;) I love those loose skirts but they never look right on me! Short legs and a big booty…XXX. You look fab of course!!
