Weekend Whereabouts

~ 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.

~ My neighbor invited me over for some wine and girl talk so we spent the rest of the night sitting under the stars on her back patio chit-chatting while the guys played poker at another neighbor's house.

~ I spent a couple hours in the morning lounging by the pool listening to my audiobook.
~ I went for an hour long massage to ease the tension in my back and neck - blame it on the desk job.

~ My SIL, her husband, and their new basset hound rescue pup, Sadie, drove into town to visit us for the night.

~ The four of us went out to the Taste of Nona Event. We enjoyed food and drinks from 25 different local vendors/restaurants, live music, and took part in the silent auction to benefit the Ronald McDonald House.

~ It was a netflix and chill day, literally. I spent the morning catching up on shows and relaxing.
~ I put this BBQ pulled pork recipe in the crockpot to cook for dinner.
~ Went to the pool to catch some rays and listen to my book for a few hours.

~ Spent the evening doing all the Sunday things - laundry, blogging, organizing my work outfits for the week, and enjoyed some delicious pulled pork sandwiches for dinner.

Joining the lovely Biana sharing my weekend whereabouts.


  1. Your weekend sounds so perfect and relaxing- good for you! I’m due for a pedi so I may get one during the day here soon before baby girl comes home from the hospital and life gets a little crazy! I have that same donut float for my pool drinks- so cute!

  2. What a perfect and lovely weekend! I sometimes go in for a manicure and have every intention of getting one color and then i see all the options and start right back to square one!! Your Saturday morning sounds wonderful - pool time and a massage - yes please! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston
