My Weekend via Instagram

Good morning Sunshine’s! Happy Monday 🙂 I’m in a good mood today because this girl isn’t going to work. Wanna know why? We have a special floating holiday that has to be used up and soon. I didn’t want to risk losing it, so I opted to take it today. My boss needs me in the office on Friday which is a bummer because then I could have had a 4 day weekend! Either way two four day weeks in a row isn’t too bad!

Okay onto my weekend via Instagram/iPhone pics! I’ll add in a bit of commentary for the gaps!

Friday OOTD! Unfortunately this is the only picture I took on Friday! After work, the hubs took little Miss Maggie to Petsmart and then we took ourselves on an adventure at Specs. For those of you who don’t know what Specs is, it’s a liquor store in Texas and the one by my house is the size of a grocery store. No lies. It’s awesome. On Fridays they have TONS of samples. This Friday was a big one! We actually had 10 different samples and I was quite happy when we left 🙂
After Specs we had dinner at Barnaby’s and then my girl Kathy came over! We went out on Washington for her friend’s birthday, but I had to pull a Cinderella and was out of there by midnight. Because I needed to run in the morning!
Saturday started off with a 7 miler with the running club followed by breakfast with the hubs and Kathy then some down time. My little girl was okay with the down time!


Saturday night, we had the Waite’s and Philip over {Alison was out of town!} for dinner and the Texans game! We grilled some ribs, boiled corn on the cob and I made a strawberry spinach salad. And guess what? I managed to get absolutely NO PICTURES! Ooops!
Sunday morning started slow until the hubs and I finally got ready for…THE ZOO!!! I love the zoo and I’m a member which means I get in all year long and I can bring a guest. The pass pays for itself after two visits and this was our third!
I’m ready to roll! It was super hot out so I opted for cool, casual clothes. My shirt actually says Running Wild…perfect for the zoo!


I also rocked my new kicks…which kind of look funny from the top! They are super comfy and I’m glad I got to break them in a bit!


Those of you who follow me on Instagram already saw this yesterday! Those of you who don’t, what do you think? A lot of you asked how I did it, it’s actually super easy and requires no french braiding! I’ll do it again, take some pics so y’all can try as well!
Here are a few pics from the zoo!
Clockwise from the top left:
Monkey with his bum on the log and his arms and legs clinging to the fence 🙂
Elephants playing in the water
Giraffes and zebras! Giraffes and Elephants are my FAVORITE!
Sleepy bear taking a nap half in the water. Check out those claws!
After the zoo we headed over to Rice Village for some lunch and shopping! I got a new candle and a pretty hurricane vase for my mantel. Pictures to come soon. I need a bit of advice on the mantel 🙂
When we got home, I finished up my little project. I wanted to decorate Maggie’s food bin so it wasn’t so ugly. I decided to go with chalkboard paint and some fun duct tape!


I think I need to fix up the chalk a little bit! The rest of our Sunday was spent lounging around, taking Maggie on walks and a yummy dinner of grilled tilapia, side of pasta and broccoli!
What did y’all do this weekend? Anything exciting? Here’s to hoping this week is going to be a good week. I’m starting it off right with a day off!
Now go link up!

Until next time…
With love and God bless,

Sharing is caring!
