Weekend Roundup, 2nd Edition

     “Sometimes it pays to stay in bed in Monday, rather than spending the rest of the week debugging Monday's code"
- Dan Salomon

Why is it that weekends go by so quickly? They are going by especially fast because pretty soon I won't have them anymore. Just a joy of working in retail. Anyway, here's my weekend roundup.

After work my two best friends and I went out to celebrate my new job!

These two girls are amazing and we had a wonderful time! Even though our waiter was not the best. I'm talking to you sir at Molly's.

Evan had a game at 11am, so we set out around 10am in order to get there in time for him to warm up with his team. They did not win, they lost by 6 points and it all happened in the last 3 minutes! I'm super competitive and I was dying inside. There were some terribly insane calls by one of the refs and two of our players ended up fouling out, so that didn't help things. Afterwards, I found out that New York & Company was having their 50% off sale again this weekend and there were several things that I wished I had gotten last weekend so we took the opportunity to get some retail therapy in!
I got these shorts in a mango color.

I got two of these shirts - one grey and the other in a coral color.

I got this bag in the pink that you see pictured in front.
I also got some more pieces of jewelry, a printed tiered camisole and two plain camisoles. When I got out of retail the first time I got rid of most of my professional clothes & also I've lost 36.5 pounds and most of them wouldn't have fit me anyway so I was in desperate need of some things to wear to my new job. I don't think I can sell/manage in a Memphis Tigers' t-shirt and denim capris.

Saturday night I kept the kids for which I nanny so their parents could have "date night" and we started to watch the movie Avatar. I had no clue it was so long, so they had to go to bed before it was over. I thought it was so strange that I turned it off after they went to bed. I started watching Toddlers&Tiaras, which is actually not really any less strange but at least nobody was blue.

Sunday was Mother's Day and we had brunch at my grandparent's house.

What's wrong with this picture? We tried to talk my momma out of cooking on Mother's Day but she wouldn't have it.

My two favorite women! I have learned so much from them and I continue to learn everyday. They are so wise and I can't wait to have a child so I can put in to practice everything they've taught me!

Evan and I were messing around with the camera while we were waiting for brunch to be ready! Excuse my lack of makeup. I hardly had time to get ready because I thought brunch was an hour later than it actually was - silly mistake cost me valuable hair and makeup time!

Sunday night I did laundry, watched The Apprentice and just generally readied myself for the week!

All in all my weekend was fabulous! I'm already looking forward to the next one, though! It will be my last for a while as I start my new job next Wednesday!

What were y'all up to this weekend?


  1. Fun weekend, and so excited about your new job and the wonderful things ahead for you!! :)

  2. were busy. I love the picture of your mom and grandmother...what sweet ladies. You are so lucky to have them.

    I love your NY and company purchases...I need you to text me next time the 50% sale is on. :)

    So glad you got to have girls night out in celebration of your new job!!! YAY for you!

  3. The fact that you look that good without makeup makes me pretty sure that we can't be friends anymore.


    p.s. i always have to squint when i come to your blog! the blackness makes it hard to see i think. or maybe i'm just old and blind.
