Party Weekending

Monday, July 27, 2015

I'm never going to sleep early again..

Here we are again on a Monday... ugh. I had a great weekend and a busy one at that. Friday night I had the best of intentions to come home and cook for my party on Saturday and get to bed early. Well, as they say, best laid plans sometimes go awry. I did come home and get to party food prepping and I got most of it done too... and then I got the text. You know the one from your friend that says please come here, to the bar where there is live music, cold beer, pizza and me. Duh, ok you had me at pizza. Actually I did not eat the pizza but a few cold ones were on the menu. That led to a much later evening than was originally planned but definitely worth the lack of sleep! I'll sleep when I'm dead I guess is the saying right? Or on Sunday afternoon works  for me too.

Saturday I did a little shopping with my 16 year old which is always fun. We went to our favorite local candle shop Juls where they make and sell the most amazing candles you have ever smelled in your life. I just don't buy any others if I can help it. She uses all essential oils in her candles and one will literally scent your whole house. Go check out her website here and order some, they are like nothing else out there!

I also splurged and treated myself to this... the new Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette. And it is gorgeous! Can't wait to watch a million tutorials and take my smokey eye game to the next level. Love this.

The rest of Saturday flew by and I had my most epic of parties yet for my tennis team end of season celebration. I didn't take nearly enough pics because beer, but there was great food, lots of beer pong, giant fireworks (yes we are rednecks at heart) loud music, and a drive by form the County sheriff. Not even lying, we were a little obnoxious with the mortars but... YOLO. That lasted till the wee hours of the morning with various folks camped out on my sofas and extra beds because driving home drunk from my house is not allowed. Sunday morning we cleaned up and goofed around until 12:30, when they can legally serve alcohol on Sunday in GA, and headed to our favorite brunch spot for a much needed Bloody Mary and some amazing Crab Benedict. And the rest of the day was spent napping and watching Netflix and not much else, which was amazing!!!

My chalkboard wall makes a nice welcome sign. And everyone got to add a little something too. 

My new favorite brunch.


Linking up with Biana!


  1. I need to splurge and treat myself to that palette! Things is I dont wear a lot of eye make-up unless its a really special occasion so its sometimes hard to justify splurging on eye makeup though I always want it.

  2. That first quote - sometimes I do remember a great nights sleep LOL! I have my eye on that palette but need to give my mom my other two before I am allowing myself to buy this new one!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. the new naked palette is soooo pretty!

  4. I have naked 2 palette! LOVE it! Urban Decay is awesome as fuck.
    Did you see the new list of movies/shows being added to Netflix in August? HOLLA! I can't wait!

  5. I'm glad your party was awesome!

    Brunch looks amazing.
