Weekending | Springing Forward

Happy Monday morning cupcakes! Today was the first time I felt the time change and it was awful! Walking out to my car and having it be pitch black thanks! I want my sunshine back!!! The only good thing that comes out of today being Monday is that I get to leave work a bit earlier and head to the Houston Rodeo with my main squeeze Sam Hunt (oh and hubby too 😉). Catch all of the fun the Rodeo has to offer on my snapchat (npat62) and Instagram (npat62)!

This weekend was pretty low key, we did a bit of shoe shopping and eating yummy (but awful for you) foods too! 

Friday night we ended up renting Manchester By The Sea, overall I thought it was a decent movie. I absolutely loved Casey Affleck's acting, but kind of got annoyed by the other characters. 

Saturday we headed out to a few stores before a big rain storm hit us in the afternoon. We went to DSW to use up some giftcards I got. Let me tell you, I always head right to the clearance section of this store because 9 times out of 10 I will always find something there in my size and at an incredible price. I ended up getting 2 pairs of shoes, a fancier pump and wedge sandals. The pumps were originally $79.94 and I ended up getting them for $17! The wedge sandals were $49.94 and I ended up paying $34.94! Here are the wedge sandals I got, but I couldn't find the pumps. They seemed to be the only pair at DSW that day too, so I wonder if they were on final final sale. I love that these wedges look cute with the gladiator-esque style, but are super duper comfortable! Plus this color goes with just about anything and everything under the sun! 

I had been craving some cupcakes so we headed over to Gigi's to grab some yummy treats. I couldn't wait to dig into this confetti cake I picked up, let me tell decision ever! 

Sunday was spent waking up an hour later than usual (thanks DST). I didn't really feel the time change Sunday because we didn't have much planned. I didn't feel sleepy at the time I usually go to bed and ended up sleeping a half hour later than usual. Which definitely made it difficult to wake up this morning. For dinner we met up with our cousins and headed to our favorite, Chuy's! 

Can we just take a minute to talk about a super cute "Beauty and the Feast" shirt they had on their wall...too bad they didn't have my size or else that bad boy was coming home with to stalk all the Chuy's to find my size!!

So waking up this morning was probably already awful, but then add that it was basically night-time out. Luckily it's Spring Break week which means minimal traffic and getting to work a whole 20 minutes sooner than usual. I'll take it especially since getting out of work will be 100% worse this week.


Linking up with Biana who celebrated her birthday this weekend and is frolicking around La La Land :)! 


  1. The going to work while it's still dark outside is definitely the worst thing about daylight savings time, but at least it'll be nice and sunny when you're at the Rodeo tonight! I can't wait to hear all about your time there, and I hope that you have a blast!

  2. Ah, so jealous that you're getting to see Sam Hunt! Have a blast! :)

  3. Have so much fun tonight!! All of this food looks so good - now I'm totally craving Mexican :)

  5. I'm with ya on the worst part about DLS is waking up when it pitch black outside and finding the motivation to get out of bed. I need sunshine to get my day started!! lol The cupcake looks yummy!

  8. Man, you made out with those shoes, such a great deal! And now I'm totally craving Chuy's, I think I need to hit that up for lunch this week! Glad you had a great weekend! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes
