Weekend Update

Hi Friends! I feel like I blinked my eyes and the weekend was over. So sad! Too bad we can't fast forward to the holiday weekend. Here's hoping this week flies by. First of all, I want to say welcome to all the new followers! Y'all Rock! Thank you so much for following along. It means more than you know! Also, did you see my feature on Sami's Shenanigans? Pretty cool! :)

This weekend was pretty much the norm for a summer weekend. Friday night we tried a new Mexican restaurant and it might just be our new favorite. It was so good! Here's a peek at our appetizers...

Saturday was spent running errands (and shopping!) and hanging out by the pool. Can you believe The Husband agreed to go to the mall and Ulta with me? I guess I'm still riding the Birthday wave! Hey, I'll take it! New makeup, even restocking, makes this girl so happy! :)

It was such a great pool day. Low humidity and lots of sun. There are never enough days like this.
I may have indulged in a few of these while soaking up some much needed rays...

Saturday night I had to leave The Husband at home while I attended a bachelorette party here in town. One of my dear friend's sister is getting married and I was invited to tag along. Remember waaaayyy back in January when I told you about their New Year's Eve engagement? Well, the wedding is almost here (next weekend)! I had a blast with these ladies but let me just say, I cannot party like I used to! Sad, but true. Since all things that happen at a bachelorette party must remain secret, here's the one and only picture I snapped...

It was such a fun night. I rarely see these girls so there was lots of catching up to be done. 
We even had our own koozies! Christy and Lisa did such a fantastic job with all the planning. 
A great time was had by all!

Sunday morning we attended church and then lunch with some new friends. Afterwards, we hit the pool. It was such a pretty day here yesterday, we just couldn't resist. We totally abandoned our dirty laundry and weekly grocery store trip to soak up the last bit of sunshine for the weekend. It was glorious! And with the blink of an eye, it was Monday.

So there you have our weekend. Nothing too exciting but definitely not boring. 
What did you do this weekend? I'd love to hear!
