Weekend Happenings!



1  |  This weekend was absolutely gorgeous weather. It was sunny and in the high 70s and low 80s all weekend.  I mean really, it feels like full on summer here, and I am not complaining!

2  |  Since the weather was so nice, John and I decided it would be a good idea to lay out by the pool and get a little sun before Blake and Ginna's wedding this weekend.  However, after only an hour, we turned into Mr. and Mrs. Lobster.  It's bad - I'm just hoping my arms get through the peeling by Friday... (sorry in advance to the bride and groom!).

3  |  Saturday night John's coworker hosted a crawfish boil.  Crawfish is good, but I'm not going to lie, the process of getting to the edible portion grosses me out a bit.  After 20 minutes, or so, I was done and just had John do all the dirty work for me! Whata man! :) :)

4  |  It was nice getting to know some of John's coworkers a bit more and chatting with everyone.  Scout was invited and joined, but after only 10 minutes, I took her home... She was eating whole crawfish off of the ground, and it was totally nasty digging claws out of her mouth. 

5  |  On Sunday I made mini key lime pies! I couldn't believe how yummy they turned out!  I plan on sharing the recipe tomorrow. :)
6  |  Also, have you tried the new "Oprah" chai latte at Starbucks?  It is really good!! It's a bit spicier, and the flavor is way better than the normal chai... and fewer calories too!  This will def. be my new go-to drink for awhile!

7  |  Sunday evening, I took Scout to the dog park for a bit.  We haven't been going as often as we did when she was a puppy... I feel like there are a lot of dogs that are pretty rough with her, and although they aren't necessarily being aggressive, I don't think Scout has much fun getting beat up on.  She would rather sit and take selfies with me on the bench!  She's quite photogenic... look at that model stare!

8  |  I'm co-hosting a baby shower for a coworker in a few weeks, so I spent quite a few hours cutting out paper onesies.  I found a ton of super cute paper at Hobby Lobby for a good deal, so I bought a bunch - we will see if my fingers can stand cutting it all!

9  |  This doesn't really have anything to do with my weekend, but I am pretty excited for the new Bachelorette tonight! Will anyone else be watching?!  I didn't really enjoy Desiree or Juan Pablo's seasons, so I'm hoping this one will be worth watching.

  2. Oh I am definitely ready for The Bachelorette tonight (and I'm hoping it will get me hooked on the series once again, since I had to give up during Juan Pablo's season). Looking forward to seeing that key lime pie recipe!

  5. Looks like you had an awesome weekend! Yum key lime pies! I'm going to have to try the new Chai, chai lattes are my usual go to and I noticed that this one had popped up but I was nervous to sway from my usual, glad to hear it's tasty.

  7. I'm so happy you explained the oprah chai! I've been wanting to try it, but thought it was the same chai but more money! Happy Monday!

  8. Oh I love crawfish!! It definitely is a pain to get to the good stuff but worth it, I think :) My dogs would have been doing the exact same thing! Mini key lime pies sound amazing...key lime pie is my favorite for sure! I'll be watching the Bachelorette tonight! I didn't enjoy Juan Pablo so I also hope Andi's season is better :)

  9. What an awesome weekend! So jealous of your nice weather-- we went from warm to cool and I hate to complain, but after having 80s and 90s, going back down to 60s seems chilly! Those little paper onesies look so cute! I love seeing what creative DIYs people do for wedding and baby showers!

  16. I wanted to make my own thank you cards for my baby shower. So I cut out 40 tiny onesies to paste on top of the carstock. My goodness, I was over it around the 5th one. Good luck!

  19. I love your green dress in that picture above! I got a little sunburned this past weekend as well. I wasn't outside that long either. Boo to sunburn!

  20. Looks like y'all had a fabulous weekend. Love the couples pic! Y'all are too cute! Love crawfish but you're right they are tons of work. Obviously Scout doesn't mind ;)

  21. Can't wait for the recipe and I haven't had a chance to try it yet but definitely want to!

  22. I just love your weekend recaps. I've got to start taking more pictures! Crawfish would totally gross me out too and I can't believe Scout was eating them! I'd probably freak out my dogs would get choked or something crazy! My dogs aren't too crazy about dog parks either. Every time we take them, they hang out under the bench with us. And chai lattes are my favorite so I will definitely be trying this new one!
