Weekending | Football & BBQ's

Happy Monday (although no, it's not lol). Last night we got home so late and I went to bed way past my bedtime, thanks Texans for going into OT, but at least they won!

Friday was a nice treat because I got to leave early from work, so I treated myself to a much needed manicure. It was so nice to be able to just sit back and relax getting pampered.

Saturday we spent the morning grocery shopping, running errands (aka browsing Target for 2 hours) and cleaning. That night we went out for our date night, completely oblivious to the fact that it was sweetest day. We aren't one for celebrating, but since we were already out...I decided to take the night into my hands and pay for dinner for my sweetest ;)!

We went to Maggiano's and it was beyond delicious...I was well and stuffed! We headed home afterwards to watch SNL (where I then proceeded to fall asleep half way through...#oldladyproblems).

Sunday we woke up late and just watched some football during the day, picking up a few leftover items from the grocery store for later. I celebrated not only my best friends birthday, but our 3 month wedding anniversary #saywhat #wherehasthetimegone?!?

We then headed to our cousins house to BBQ for the Texans game. We made so much food that it was ridiculous...also ridiculous, grilling in basically darkness. However it may be, the food all turned out delicious and we were so stuffed that night!


Overall it was a great weekend, albeit HOT!! It was basically in the 90's every single day this weekend, this is not ok for this Chicago girl ready for Fall!! Bring me 70's Houston!!!

Linking up with my girl Biana for Weekending!

  5. Texas really takes its sweet time with fall, especially Houston! It's so annoying! Haha. Maggiano's is so good! You make me want to go soon.

  6. What a nice weekend! I need a mani and pedi badly....I need to get on that! Maggiano's looks so good, glad you enjoyed it!

  7. I wish that it was cooler in Houston right now too! The 90's is definitely not ok for October, but I've heard that we might get a cool front too! It sounds like you had a really relaxing and fun weekend, and that's too funny that y'all were grilling in the dark!

  8. I love your outfit! I want every piece of it! I love that you guys do date night. Dessert is always the best!

  9. What a quick 3 months it was! I loved your outfit!!
