Weekending: Memorial Day Edition

Tuesday, May 31, 2016

This Memorial Day weekend was so fantastic! We're having a really hard time coming to grips with reality and having to go back to work... can we just not adult? For some reason, the whole mood of the weekend was different knowing we still had Monday off - and let me tell you, it was amazing and we definitely need 3 day weekends from here on out ;)

Friday, Stephen took off work to get some things done around the house and once I got home from work, we headed off to the mall to look at some glasses for Stephen. He didn't find any yet but I sure did find a few pairs; too bad I don't need glasses right now. After looking at glasses we had dinner at Moe's (we haven't been there in years!) and it definitely brought me back to my high school days lol Afterwards, we debated on what to do next but ended up walking around the mall area and browsing through some stores. We closed out the night with finishing season 5 of LOST and going to bed happy that we had 3 more days in the weekend.

We're totally getting these ;)

Saturday, I was up bright and early (because my body hates me) and we got ready and headed out to the beach. We live about 20 minutes from the beach and this was our 2nd time going in a year - we're crazy for not going more and definitely need to change that! We bought a beach umbrella the night before and it made all the difference! We had an amazing time out there and loved watching all the surfers. 

After the beach, we came home, ran to Publix, had lunch and watched some more LOST before grilling out. For desert, I made Fresh Strawberry Cake that Katie suggested and it was delicious, only problem is it didn't come out of the bunt pan... so it ended up getting thrown into a big Tupperware. Thank goodness no one else was supposed to eat it. Even though it looked like a hot mess, it tasted delicious!

Sunday, we got up and headed out to church. Afterwards, we came back and did some cleaning, Stephen mowed, I gave him and haircut and I worked on some embroidery orders. Afterwards, we relaxed, watched some LOST and I made a fun cheese tray before going on a bike ride and eating leftovers for dinner.

Monday, we slept in (finally!) and got to work figuring out where we were going to stay during our CO trip. We got 3/5 cities nailed down so we need to figure out the other 2 cities this week and officially book everything. I am definitely getting more and more excited for the trip after seeing the hotels and all the fun activities!! Afterwards, we tried to hang up our new outdoor fan and turns out, the builder did a sloppy job and didn't install the anchor properly. We're still not sure how to fix it without calling an electrician. After dinner, we watched a little more LOST until it was time for the Bachelorette!

I'm still pretty bummed we have to go back to normal life today but I'm so thankful we were able to have a lazy weekend and didn't have to travel anywhere. The next 3 weekends are going to be pretty crazy so hopefully I savored the slower weekends while I had them ;) I hope everyone else had a great Memorial Day Weekend!!

Linking up with Biana.

  4. We looove Moes!! How cute are yall in those glasses haha! I can't believe y'all don't go to the beach more often... we go every single weekend and we live 2 hours away!!!

  5. The grandma and grandpa glasses are keepers, for sure! We love the beach. We haven't been in a few weeks, but we're wanting to go kayaking sometime soon. I went a few weekends ago with a friend and dolphins were swimming near us. That was so neat! Sounds like y'all are hooked on LOST. I used to watch it back when I was in HS. Your bunt cake picture is so funny! You tried, that's what counts :P


  6. Love that you live so close to the beach and love your monogram hat! The cheese plate looks delicious - one of our favorites!

  7. SO jealous that y'all live so close to the beach!! The closest beach to us is at least 7 hours away...I hate that lol! Your monogrammed hat and beach towel are just adorable!! Matthew got glasses on Friday, too!! We both tried on a ton of different ones lol. At least your cake still tasted good and it was just y'all! I have had that happen before but we had company over when it happened lol epic fail!

    Glad y'all had a great three day weekend!
