Wrappin' up the Weekend

Happy Monday morning everyone, yeah right! Well another weekend is over and to think it's almost the end of July is pretty scary. This weekend was pretty eventful in my books. I was off on Friday and although they tried to get me to come in on my day off which I happily denied, I didn't really do much during the day. I did a little studying for my last final and ran a few errands. 
Friday evening I got invited by my sister's friend to go to an event her PR company was hosting. It was such a fun night to a club I'd never been to and we were treated like VIP's with our very own reserved table and bottle service, all for free! The event was for a talent show which included a few singers, tap dancers, and even an acrobatic performance. It was super cool, plus our table was right next to one of the popular radio hosts on our local fm radio station!

Saturday was one of my old coworkers/bff's wedding shower. I was so excited to see her because she had been in Kansas City for the past year and now she's moved back. Her gorgeous wedding is a destination wedding in Oahu, Hawaii and I'm so upset I won't be able to make it, but I know she is going to make a beautiful bride!!

Sunday was super relaxing, I got to sleep in and when I woke up I did some laundry and headed over to my cousins house. We decided to lounge by the pool even though the overcast made it seem like it was going to rain, it didn't. Afterwards we made some yummy dinner and watched the Teen Choice Awards, not the Bachelorette because I felt like they were over-hyping it up for absolutely no reason. After seeing all the tweets and facebook posts about the finale, I'm glad I dodged a bullet missed the finale. I did watch a little bit of the "After the Rose" episode and realized I'm glad she picked Jef, but I just don't think they will last long considering this franchise only has one solid couple from the numerous seasons. I will tell ya I am mighty excited for The Bachelor Pad, I love me some drama and hookups and I have a feeling they won't disappoint!! 

Here is what's on the menu for this week:

-Monday {The Bachelorette Dish-although I missed it, I will probably watch it from my DVR to see what all the excitement or lack there of was about}
-Tuesday {nothing planned yet, may not get a post up today, my Grandpa is having knee surgery so if you all could keep him in your prayers, I will really appreciate it!}
-Wednesday {Oh, how Pinteresting- I have been finding some awesome things, as always, on Pinterest and want to share them with you}
-Thursday {It's OK Thursday link up party}
-Friday {Nail Files link up-loving the color I have picked out for this week!!}
