Weekend Shenanigans

Well hey there errrbody! Seems like another weekend has come and gone right from under us. This Monday I am back at it, I started Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 work out today. Level 1 isn't completely kicking my ass as bad as the 30 Day Shred level 1. Apparently I am not as in bad of shape after completing that challenge and doing Pilates and ab works outs since.

Enough about all that, on to my weekend shenanies! Friday after work Chris and I had some stuff to do around the house as we were hosting a guest! The dogs hung out back while we were running around like crazy people. I mean, do you get any sweeter than this? Me thinks not!

We played grown ups and went to Target to purchase a few items that we have been meaning to get since oh I dont know...last June when we bought his house. We got a welcome mat for out front door. What kind of people don't have welcome mats? Apparently us for a year. It has a dog bone on it of course. We also purchased a bath mat for our 3rd bathroom in the basement, some poster frames for Chris's awesome gaming posters for the basement, new shower liners for the bathrooms and a curtain rod for our bedroom. We also went to Staples and got a new office chair. We came home and put together the poster frames and got all the other stuff set up. I also cleaned out the atrocious mess that we called our guest room. 

Saturday morning we woke up early and I did my normal 3 hour weekly clean of the house. Chris's dad came over and helped us hang our curtains that we have had sitting around since last November. Oops. Then, while we waited for our guest to arrive...I enjoyed a hard root beer. It was amazing!

Our guest lives in Huntsville and had a bad first impression of Birmingham. We wanted to change that, so when she got here we headed to World of Beer. We hung out there for awhile and sampled several new beers. We then headed to Avondale Brewery. We sat outside and enjoyed the Georgia/South Carolina game...go Dawgs! Afterwards we went to J Clyde to have some dinner. It was such a great day! We took lots of pictures, but unfortunately I left my phone at home and have none of them. Fail! Maybe they will share them with me.

Sunday we took our guest to Chuy's for lunch. Their patio has some of the best views in Birmingham!

Our waitress brought us out an extra thing of chips because she said we had lots to dip. Why yes, we did! Lunch was delicious, even though any of us hardly touched our meals after all the wonderful dips we had going!

After lunch our guest departed and Chris and I headed to Target and Publix for our weekly grocery shopping. Sunday evening we enjoyed some more Vampire Diaries, we are almost caught up to where the season is now! I don't know what we will do when we are caught up?! 

I hope everyone has a wonderful week! Go get it!
