Sequins and Sea Breezes: Weekending + A Giveaway

Weekending + A Giveaway

4/27/2015

 
 
Happy Monday loves! Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! I'm counting down the days until the next three day weekend. I feel like I never get everything I wanted to do done on the weekends. I really need a three day weekend every other weekend just to get things accomplished! Oh well! Linking up with my girl Biana for our weekend recaps!
 
 Friday night I relaxed a bit, made poppy seed chicken casserole that I saw on Meghan's blog last week, and had a glass of amazing moscato d'asti while playing Wii Party. Nothing overly crazy but it was nice to relax after a super busy week.


  Saturday I headed back to my Florida hometown for my friend's twin's 1st birthday party. She did an adorable Uno themed birthday and had tons of amazing food and beverages. After the twins went to sleep for the night and most of the guests had left we ended up sitting by her pool and indulging in some wine and Tequila Rose. I'd just like to give you a little PSA... wine and Tequila Rose are a bad idea. Plus mixing wine and alcohol makes it REALLY difficult to judge how much you've drank. And when I get to a certain point I have no filter so mixing wine and alcohol made me hit that point sooner than usual.
 
  Sunday I ended up doing some errands, cleaning the house and taking my sweet little pooch to the vet for yet another bump on his body. Turns out this one is fine, like all of the others, so nothing to worry about, thankfully! Not a very picture filled weekend but now I get to start Monday off with a fun giveaway! I've teamed up with some amazing ladies to give away a Nordstrom gift card and a few other goodies!
 
  Hope everyone has a fantastic week!
 
Up for grabs is a $150 Nordstrom gift card, a Harrods tote bag from Marie's recent travels abroad and a Lilly Pulitzer Pink beach towel from the LillyforTarget craze! Brought to you by my beautiful sponsors! Nordstrom Giftcard Jill from Capri+Co || Amanda from Meet @ the Barre || Helene from heleneinbetween || Biana from Blovedboston || Pamela from Sequins & Sea Breezes || Rachel from Small Town & City Lights || Kate from Life as Kate || Kristen from See You In a Porridge || Kay from The Kay Times|| Marie from Twin Living Blog

  1. Sounds like you had a lot of fun this weekend...maybe even TOO much at some points ;) haha We've all been there! Luckily you had yesterday to relax and recover from your fun Saturday night. And Im happy to hear your pup's bump wasn't anything to worry about--it's always scary when your pet's health is an unknown. Hope your Monday's off to a good start! :)

  7. Haha I've totally been there with mixing wine and liquor, and it did not end well. Looks like you had a fabulous time, and I could not agree with you more that I need a lot more 3 day weekends in my life. I need a day to have fun, a day to get things done, and a day to relax. Sadly, the relaxing part is what usually gets the cold shoulder :-P

    Have a fabulous week gurlie <3

  18. You and your friends are all so very pretty. Looks like it was a fun weekend. A birthday party for twins sounds like so much fun. It's double the fun. lol. I so need a three day weekend every other week, that would be so fab. Heck, I wouldn't even mind just having two days off a week instead of one.

  19. What a great weekend! I'm always wanting to try recipes with poppy seed's in them, but Eric doesn't like poppy seeds! Crazy, right?! I love the Uno theme idea! Poor Mia gets the lamest party ideas from me because I'm the furthest thing from a party planner, ha ha!

  25. I 100% agree with you about 3 day weekends twice a month! I always have a few items on my to do list that don't get knocked off. Glad your pup is okay! Do you have insurance for him or do you pay out of pocket for vet visits? We're looking into adopting a cat and trying to figure out how to handle things like that!

  26. Looks like you had a fun weekend! That poppy seed casserole looks so yummy! And I'm with you on needing a 3-day weekend... I need a recovery day from the actual weekend! So glad your pup is okay :)

  35. Sounds like a fab weekend! I like your striped top and also how you layered your necklaces. :-) Sorry about the tequila and wine, but my gosh hats off to you for being able to do errands the next day!! I would have been a mess!! During the summer I love having a glass of wine outside too, it's so peaceful. :-) Anyway, hope that you had a great day today too!!
