Girl time, rain, and beef...

Sunday, April 28, 2013

Everybody loves a good weekend. Everybody. And sometimes you just need a weekend that has some girl time, husband time, some sun and some rain, and a really good steak! And thankfully this weekend, I had all of the above!

Friday night was a laid back evening. We ordered out, we watched tv, and I passed out at 9 p.m. Such a party animal am I?!

Saturday morning, we took the Mr's truck to get the oil changed, and we stopped by Jack's for some yummy breakfast. YUM! We got back home so I could get ready for a little girl time/blate with Nadine. On my way to meet her, I dropped the Mr back off at his truck and headed over to Ashley Mac's for lunch. We hadn't had a blate since March and I was ready to enjoy some one on one time with my girl Nadine!

We ordered some yummy chicken salad croissants, and immediately started with the conversations. Before we knew it.... three and a half hours had passed. Of course, in the middle of all that talking, we enjoyed some cupcakes as we helped the founder of Alabama Women Bloggers celebrate her birthday. It didn't matter that she was in Arkansas... we still wanted to help celebrate her wonderful day. And who turns down cupcakes?! We figured after almost four hours, that we needed to say our see ya laters, and get back to our husbands. They both called to check on us during our visit because we had been gone so long. Ha!

The rest of the evening was spent at the grocery store, and preparing for our dinner. We split a New York Strip steak because it was sooo massive and we topped our steaks with mushrooms, and the Mr also topped his with blue cheese. So delicious!

Sunday it was touch and go with the rain. Sometimes you just need a really lazy rainy day. Well, part of it was lazy. There was laundry to do, a dessert to make for Monday night's social and serving dishes to get ready to take for the social. And tomorrow on the blog, I'll have the recipe for the Brownie Trifle. Trust me, you'll want to come back for this yummy dessert!

How was your weekend? Anyone else enjoy the rain?!


  1. Thanks for celebrating with me, it was a wonderful day!!! Your cupcakes were beautiful! I bet they were tasty too.

  2. Yay for girls time! I wish 4 hours at work would go as fast as the fours hours we spent at Ashley Mac's!! Chris's favorite steak is NY Strip...he'd be totally jealous of your dinner. That brownie desert looks delish, I am going to have to write down the recipe when you post it! Love you girl!

  3. I have to admit that I hated the rain this weekend! haha :) I usually don't mind it, but I really needed another sunny day this weekend. Oh, Ashley Mac cupcakes, YUM!
    It looks like you are from the Birmingham area. I live in Gardendale, but we hang out in Homewood and down 280 most of the time!

  4. That sounds like the perfect weekend! A 4 hour blate!!!! That is some good stuff! PS I love you hair in the picture!

  5. That brownie trifle looks AMAZING!! Can't wait to get the dessert for that! Looks like you have a fabulous weekend and I'm so glad you and Nadine enjoyed some girl time! :) Hope to see you next weekend!

  6. Rain, sun, girl time, husband time, steak and cupcakes sounds like the recipe for a wonderful weekend.

  7. You had me at Heath Bar bits!! This looks great, I may need to make this for my mothers day luncheon!

  8. Haha - just wait for the "check in" calls when the kids come about. So glad you have a great time! :)

  9. I need a good cupcake this week! Thanks for reminding me...
