Winery Weekend


It was a relaxing weekend with some fun with friends on Saturday. The weather was cool and crisp so it's definitely feeling like Fall in Florida and I'm not complaining. My parents and sister arrive on Friday so I spent a good amount of the weekend getting our house organized and stocked up with food and lots of wine!

Weekend Sunshine


We spent the weekend in sunny Bradenton, FL visiting family and exploring the cute downtown area. When we got into town on Saturday, our first stop was at Caddy's on the water for lunch in the Tiki bar area. The weather was perfect!

Friday
I happened to be downtown for a work meeting in the morning so I treated myself to some delicious tapas for lunch at Kasa Restaurant.

 

Weekend Whereabouts


Friday
~ I went for a relaxing and long overdue mani and pedi on my lunch break. My intention was to go with Fall colors but I walked out of there with pink sparkles.
~ After work I met up with K for a quick happy hour.

Weekend Flow


The weekend was a relaxing one. I was either sleeping, lounging at the pool, or working on some projects on my computer. I did venture out on Sunday for a few hours which was much needed!

Weekend in NYC


Good morning! Hope everyone enjoyed the weekend. 

If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat (emilyalisonb), you might have seen that I was in NYC over the weekend.

Long Weekend Celebrations


 
What an action-packed weekend! Thankfully we have a short work week ahead. A friend from Boston was in town visiting over the long weekend so we definitely kept busy showing him a good time around Orlando. It's always fun playing tourist in your own city as he did the same for us when we went to visit him in Boston back in June.

Back-to-School Throwback


Hope everyone enjoyed the weekend. I'm joining Andrea and the lovely ladies over at The Blended Blog sharing my answers to the Back-to-School Edition of TBB Asks.

Weekend Happenings + TBB Asks


We meet again on this Monday morning so I hope your coffee is strong and the week goes by quickly. I had a great weekend but it's never long enough, right? I got off work a little early on Friday so I finally made it over to the new Nordstrom Rack to do some browsing and a little shopping, nothing crazy.

Weekend Whereabouts


It was a gloomy weekend in Orlando which was the perfect excuse to be productive around the house and just enjoy some R&R. I was hoping to catch some rays of sunshine by the pool but that didn't happen with the overcast weather and flashes of lightning.

Still Vacationing....


Happy Monday!

I hope everyone enjoys the holiday tomorrow. We'll be heading back from Mexico tomorrow so I may need a few days to get back into the swing of things but rest assured lots of fun travel adventures will be coming up soon on Martinis & Bikinis Blog!

Weekend Whereabouts


The weekend was one of pure relaxation. I slept in until 10:30 on both Saturday and Sunday mornings so you could say I feel fully rested and ready to get this week rolling.

Weekending


It was a weekend of sweet relaxation and not much on the agenda except a ladies night. Most of Saturday was spent relaxing and doing stuff around the house and then lounging at the pool even though it was a little overcast.

Weekend Happenings


We meet again on this Monday morning which means it's time to recap the happenings from the weekend. I hope you enjoyed yours!

My weekend turned out to be more relaxing and productive than expected.  I'm usually too exhausted from the work week to do anything on Friday nights but somehow I had a small pop of energy so K and I met up at Carrabba's for a quick happy hour followed by a delicious dinner.


Carrabba's is definitely one of my favorite Italian chain restaurants because of their Chicken Bryan dish which is topped with goat cheese and sundried tomatoes. That and the mussels are so good!


I mentioned on Friday that it turns out I have Tendonitis in my right foot so I have to wear the boot of doom for two weeks. Right foot = driving foot so my mobility is limited or at least very inconvenient with this big bulky thing.


Kate and I had plans to meet up with a girl friend on Saturday for a wine & apps picnic by the lake. Unfortunately our friend came down with a high fever and had to cancel so plans changed and I went out with K to do some shopping and errands.

I restocked on some of my favorites from Bath & Body Works. We go through those foam soaps so quickly and I can't live without their small hand sanitizers to keep in my purse, car, and for traveling.


Saturday evening I worked on so many projects from blogging to photography along with stuff for work and I finally made the Green Tea Body Scrub created by Alexis from the Chemistry Cachet. I like the idea of a natural body exfoliator and the rose water gives it a nice scent.


On Sunday afternoon we went to a baby's 1st birthday party for our friend's son. It was nice catching up with a few friends and seeing everyone's babies as they grow before your eyes.

On Sunday night we tried our hand at grilling lamb chops for the first time. Lamb is one thing I've never attempted to cook but K whipped up an amazing marinade and the lamb with smashed cauliflower and caesar salad for the sides couldn't have been a better Sunday night dinner.

Weekend: Purple Hair Don't Care


The weekend was exactly what I wanted with lots of relaxing, some pampering, shopping the President's Day sales, and dinner with friends.


I mentioned last week that I went to Tampa on Thursday night for a work conference which was at a beautiful resort on the water.  My coworker and I grabbed a bite to eat and caught a beautiful sunset before the conference kicked off. I didn't get home until super late so I was too exhausted to do anything on Friday night.

On Saturday I had a hairdresser appointment to get my highlights touched up and added in some purple/lavender streaks to change things up a bit. I love how it turned out!


I got roped into the President's Day sales at Target and Kohl's and picked up a few goodies for myself!

We had dinner reservations on Saturday night with our neighbor friends at a new tapas-style restaurant. The food was amazing and we really enjoyed their company. My neighbor guy especially is hilarious so I was laughing for most of the night with his funny comments and jokes.





 

Sunday was all about relaxing and being productive. I finished off a work project, got my blogging on, and did the usual food prep, laundry, and other adulting stuff one is required to do.

Weekend Happenings

It all started with a whole lot of nothing on Friday night and getting a good night of sleep which I don't often get during the week so I felt refreshed on Saturday. I did my usual weekend things like laundry, cleaning and some blogging.

The extent of my weekend fun was on Saturday night. We went out for dinner and drinks to celebrate a friend's birthday which was blast!
 









Lola woke me up bright and early on Sunday against my will. The weather was gloomy so I spent the morning relaxing and sipping on some coffee. In the afternoon I went to get some pampering with a facial. The weather was so extremely windy, it was pretty difficult driving in a straight line to and from my appointment.

I came home to some homemade Moscow Mules made by K which are always delicious.

Then we got a Tornado warning which would explain the crazy winds.


The rest of the evening was spent at home sweet home doing the usual food prep, blogging and getting organized for the work week ahead.

A Cozy Weekend


A cozy and relaxing weekend it was with some pampering and productivity in there. On Friday I went to a new Chiropractor to get adjusted and hopefully fix some of my back problems.



Saturday was pretty overcast so I did some online shopping on Amazon and got a bunch of stuff done around the house. K and I then headed out to do errands and grab some delish lunch at Marlow's Tavern.


On Sunday I went out shopping for some home things at Kohl's and Home Goods and picked up a few beauty items at Ulta. Plus I got my new booties in the mail (I have the same pair in gray) so I already know they're super comfortable.


I finished off my little Sunday outing with a massage at Massage Envy to use a gift certificate I got for Christmas. I ended up signing up for a membership which includes one massage or facial per month so I will be taking full advantage of that!


Hopefully between the chiropractor and the massage membership, my back will begin to feel better again.

The rest of Sunday was spent being cozy on the couch catching up on some shows minus the fact that Lola thinks the couches are all hers. Too spoiled!



Linking up today with the lovely Biana.
