Weekend Recap

Finally, a relatively fun weekend to tell you about!

Friday night the plan was to meet up with some friends that were playing a show in Atlanta for the night. I got all dolled up and we set out to our go-to sushi restaurant, however when we got there, it was closed for remodeling. Crap! I don't know about you, but when I get an idea set in my stomach about what I'm eating for the night, I can't change it. I can roll with almost any change of plans, but when it comes to food, not a chance. So we googled for the nearest one and found ourselves on the way to Sushi House Buckhead. Low and behold, it was even better than our go-to! It's my new favorite, it's a few bucks more expensive, but the service and sushi were totally worth the difference!
I am typically not a fan of selfies, but I was proud of my hair

As soon as dinner was over, we realized we were both having that Friday afternoon crash. We went to the bar to see my friends to at least tell them hello, even though we knew us two old people couldn't hardly stay awake much longer. So we came back, watched an episode of my latest Netflix obsession, Fringe, and I was out by 10:00. How freaking pathetic of me?!

Saturday I got up and set out on a mission to find the greatest baby present ever for our friends, Billy and Meghan's new little girl, Adeline. Last week I saw the most perfect little rocking horse, but was stupid and didn't get it, and it wasn't there went I changed my mind and went back for it. I scavanged every homegoods store in the North Metro area looking for this adorable little thing with no avail.
If you see her at a store near you, snag her for me. SERIOUSLY!

After half a day of shopping without any luck, I went to Billy's house and snuggled with my favorite little girl until he got off work.  The upside to all of that unsucessful shopping, I found out that I won a facebook giveaway for a $75 shopping spree at one of my favorite boutiques!! Heck yeah! 

That night we went to a party with our Team Elite family at the head coach's beautiful, beautiful new home right near Chateau Elan. I was so excited to see all of the girls again, and Billy was excited he got to play poker and grunt and do other manly things I don't care do do with him.

I was beyond excited to see Ashley show up!

All of the boys and their poker games

Sunday we went to visit Meghan and Billy to pick up a few things and to check on her growing belly! Addie will be here before we know it. We also tried making homemade guacamole for the first time. It was obviously a very very dry run, because it was not near on the level that i was hoping it would be, but it was a start. What do you use in your guac recipe? I know every one does something different and I love hearing each person's take on it.


  1. Fun weekend! My mom legit make the best guac ever. Avocados, cilantro, tomato, onion, jalapeno, salt, and lime. I think the secret to its goodness is that she doesn’t mash up the avos with a spoon, or fork, or whatever…she mashes them with her hands. It gets a little messy but an easy clean if you just scrape it off your hands with those flexible spatulas.

    1. I think I put too much onion in it. The garlic was totally unnecessary. I'm going to have to fly out there and get your mom to give me a little tutorial on how it's done, because I need to make some severe improvements!

  2. SOunds like a good weekend :) Also, I am an old person too and frequently feel like I could fall asleep standing up if I am out any later than 11pm! Haha

    1. I am so glad I am not the only one! I knew I was an old soul, but sheesh ;)

  3. It was sooo wonderful to see you! I love the curls too! My guac recipe is 3-4 avocados, 1/2 cup medium spicy salsa, 1-2 teaspoons lemon juice, 1/4 cup sour cream, and 1 tablespoon cajun seasoning. Just mix it all together. Sooo good! Coach LOVES it! Most of the time I leave out the sour cream too and I like it even better that way. Let me know if you try it! :o)
