Weekend Recap

Happy Monday friends!  I hope your weekends were full of awesome and that you’re ready to tackle this week!  We had a great weekend over here full of family, friends, and yummy food :)

Saturday we were having Chris’ Soldiers over for a BBQ.  Emmie didn’t sleep too well the night before and was up around 5AM.  Neither she or I really ever went fully back to sleep.  At around 6:30 I realized our fan wasn’t on and it was getting really HOT.  I got up to turn it on … only it didn’t.  In my sleep induced stupor it took me a minute to realize we had no power.  YIKES!  We called the electric company and all they could say was that they were working on it … no estimate on time.  After some Twitter-search and Googling we knew that we would be ok if the power would be restored soon as long as we didn’t open to fridge or freezer.  The CDC posts more tips HERE.


We decided to load up and head to our favorite breakfast spot to eat.  By the time we got home it was almost 8AM and the power still was out.  A went back to bed and right at 8:30 the air kicked back on.  Chris and I did a happy dance and got to work getting ready for company.  Everyone got to our house at 1PM.  We had SO much good food:


We had a great time getting to know them better, eating good food, and playing ladders.  Ladders is by far one of my new favorite games.  Chris’ 1SG said that he made his set in about 15 minutes flat so that is on our “to do” list before football season.  Chris was quite competitive and was pretty steamed when his team lost haha.  Oh well babe, you’ll get them next time 😉

Yesterday we spent the morning getting our lives back together.  I had some work to get done and we had laundry to do.  My step-sister Kelsey is coming to visit this coming weekend so we needed to get the house back in order to get ready for her.  We took a welcomed break in the afternoon to head downtown and hit up Moe’s Southwestern Grill for the first time.  For non-southerners, Moe’s is kind of like Chipotle or Freebirds.  Chris and I liked it but for us Chipotle > Freebirds > Moes.  It will do for our local, and only, choice but our hearts lie with Chipotle 😉

After pigging out on Mexican food we hit up the mall.  Bath and Body Works was having a big sale and I got my body wash for $3 each.  SCORE.  Gap was also offering an additional 25% off all sale items so of course Emmalyne lucked out.

Seriously that girl gets more new clothes than I do 😉  Overall it was a really nice weekend full of good food, great company, and fantastic shopping.  I have nothing to complain about :)

I am super excited today though.  Tonight, Victoria and I are going for a workout at D1 Sports Training in Savannah.  Tim Tebow co-owns this franchise … no big deal.  Apparently on top of getting a super sweaty workout on we will get to learn how to Tebow also 😉  Stay tuned for my recap!

How was your weekend?

    1. We actually LOVE Freebirds because of the variety but we lived on Chipotle in college haha. When we lived in TX and had both as options we would switch between the two though.

  2. You guys need to try barbaritos and salsaritas! The first is on Habersham between derenne and Columbus. And the second is on Waters near Memorial hospital. They are no Chipotle either but MUCH better than Moe’s. Plus barbaritos is in a cute shopping center with an adorable baby store called Punch and Judy!

  3. Oh my gosh I love Moe’s!! That is what we have in Alabama. But now I am really in to Qdoba because that is what we have here in Colorado Springs. We also have Chipotle but I am not a big fan of it. Glad to hear you had a good weekend! :)

  4. That’s so awesome that you had all of Chris’ soldiers over =) Are you leading up the FRG for the company??
    Your weekend sounds awesome – 25% off at the Gap is a score – how can you not get some cute little outfits for that little cutie of yours? But it’s true – I’m amazed at how I’m okay to spend a pretty good amount of money for an outfit for AJ – and I would never spend that much on myself! I have a feeling if baby #2 is a girl that it’s only going to be worse – most of the time AJ is in sweats/shorts and a T-shirt – probably not going to fly if we have a little girl! HAHA =)
