Sequins and Sea Breezes: Weekending

Weekending

8/18/2014

 
Happy Monday ya'll! Another weekend over way too soon...how does that always seem to happen? I've got to say though, I've really been enjoying preseason football though even though my teams haven't been doing the greatest. The only thing that makes me sad is knowing that my "free to do whatever weekends" are quickly coming to an end.  So on that note I'm linking up with my girls Biana and Meghan for another episode of weekending! 
 

Even though this wasn't exactly the weekend I'm still sharing my martini blate with these two lovely ladies from Thursday night!
 

After chatting online for what seems like forever and working literally minutes away from each other me, Emily and Kate decided to finally meet up for happy hour! $5 martinis, $4 appetizers and great company is hard to beat! Can't wait to meet up with these ladies again! 

On Friday I hung low at home with a little bit of champagne and some cards... not to mention some preseason football. It felt good to just relax after a long and busy week.


On Saturday I did a little shopping with Jill and her daughter (see above). Yes, that is a super creepy unicorn mask we persuaded her to put on even though it smelt like rubber. She is seriously the cutest thing ever and she makes me second guess ever having kids because I feel like there's no way my kid can ever be as cool as she is! #truestory A little retail therapy on a Saturday morning was the perfect way to start my weekend, especially since I haven't been shopping in person in awhile!
 

Sunday we had planned on going paddle boarding however when we got out to the springs all of the paddle boards were already taken (at 10:30 am, seriously people... sleep in every once in awhile!) so instead we ended up heading across the street to Publix to grab a few pool floats to relax in instead. 


This actually ended up being a great idea and a perfect way to spend our Sunday, just relaxing, having a few beers and enjoying the weather. However Shannon and I quickly realized that tying ourselves together and then to the pier was a smart idea so we didn't float away as seen above. There's a surprisingly strong current ready to whisk you downstream the second you let your guard down!


Did anyone else do anything fun this weekend? Hope you guys have an amazing week!

  2. Sounds like you have such a fun weekend! I attempted beach day on Friday but it was way too windy to really enjoy it. Floating in a tube sounds so perfect right about now.
