Weekend Whereabouts


I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! It was fairly relaxing for me but I had a fun girls day yesterday with my bestie visiting which was soooo good for the soul!

K and I didn't do much on Friday night. Lola was sick on Wednesday and Thursday night so I wanted to stick around to take care of her.  We had some Vietnamese food for dinner and caught up on some shows. Steph gave me a recipe for upset stomachs so I wanted to get that prepared for Lola for dinner and her next few meals. It worked wonders and she hasn't gotten sick since. Thank you Steph!



On Saturday K and I spent most of the day looking at new construction houses in the Orlando area. We've been wanting to customize a home since our current house lacks some features we think are important. We saw some amazing floor plans but I'm not sold on the location so the search continues.



After about 5 hours of house viewing we settled for some dinner at Lee and Rick's Oyster Bar which is seriously the biggest hole-in-the-wall restaurant but no one has better oysters around here.

 

Sunday morning came quickly (thankfully!) because it was time to meet up with my bestie of 25 years who's in town visiting to do a course for the next few months. We had SO much fun catching up over pedis at the day spa, lunch at Wich Wich, and TONS of shopping.


My whole backseat was filled with shopping bags but mainly for her. I can't wait to wear the cutest beach coverup from Target (pictured below) next weekend.


I also can't wait to see my bestie next weekend for more girl time at the beach!


How was your weekend?

  9. Yayyyy so glad Lola is feeling better, look at that sweet little face! House hunting especially for new construction is so much fun, I'd just be weary of KB Homes - that was the one builder everyone told us to stay away from when we started the process. Can't wait to see what you guys choose, I'm sure you'll find the perfect spot and floorplan. Your girls day sounded perfect, and a beach day next weekend will be even better! Cheers to a fabulous week <3

  12. Glad to hear Lola is feeling better!!! Chris and I have been talking lately about building our next home. I am with you, after living in our current house for four years there are certainly things that I have determined that I don't want to live without next time around. Plus it would be nice to pick all the finishes that we like! I hope you guys find what you are looking for in the location that you want. Love the cover up you got! Sounds like you had a great girls day :)

  14. I love catching up with old friends, it's seriously the best time! That's so exciting that y'all are looking to build a house! We built our house, and we love how everything turned out! Plus it's really exciting to watch the building process happen and see all of your choices go into the house.

  21. Oh soooo glad Lola is better, her sweet face! Is it bad that I'm not excited to house hunt because it all sounds exhausting and I'm VERY picky!?! I'm so happy to hear that your bestie is here for a while and you get to enjoy time with her...girl time is so important, and even more fun when she's been a part of your life for that long! Enjoy your week-hope it goes by quick for you!
