Weekend Recap: The one with all the carbs and the shopping

I don't even care that it's Monday because I only have three days of work this week! WOOT! Plus there's practically no one here this week so it should be pretty chill. This weekend was wonderful and relaxing and I got to spend some quality time wandering around Target, which is always nice. Plus I ate my weight in carbs, which always makes for a good time. 

Friday night we went to Five Guys for dinner. 

Yes, that is grease on the bag. I'm not even sorry. 

It ain't food blogger pretty, but it's delicious.  

Saturday morning I got up and went to Target, where I tried to resist spending money and failed. But I did pretty good, this shirt was 40% off and these sandals were on clearance. And since this is FL and it can be 40 degrees one day and 70 the next, I most likely won't be waiting until Spring to wear them. 

It's hard to tell, but this shirt has a SUPER cute fox print on it. Here's the link to the listing on the Target website. It's SO comfy too! 

After Target I came home and watched the Gator game, and though we played a lesser division team, it was nice to see them have a good game and win for Muschamp's last game in the Swamp. Plus we're bowl eligible, so yay, better than last year! 

That evening we went to dinner with my aunt and uncle who I hadn't seen in forever, it was so great to spend some time with them! Then we had to go by Walmart to get some lightbulbs (most boring thing to spend money on EVER) and I found this for $5: 

I was kind of ridiculously excited. Of course I had to get it. 

Sunday morning we slept in and then had lunch at Maggiano's with friends (more carbs). I wore this, no sweater or jacket because it was literally 70 degrees in Jax yesterday. After being cold and in sweaters most of the week. 

Hurley's like, "Really mom? More pictures? Is there nothing you won't document??"

Sunday evening we got all of our shopping done for the Thanksgiving meal, and I finally remembered to bring these guys out: 

Other than that just worked on laundry, getting the house clean, and the RSVP's for the Christmas Party are slowly but surely rolling in so I'm getting a better idea of how much food we are going to need!
How was your weekend? Are you ready for Thanksgiving?

  1. We had Z burger on Sunday and it was sooooo yummy!

    Love your scarf, so pretty!

  2. mmm five guys! i freaking love them, but we hardly ever go because.. so bad! haha. i love eating there when i travel as well, they're everywhere! that fox print top is so cute!

  3. The Nsync christmas album is the best! I forced my fiance to listen to it while we put up our tree last week haha!

  4. HA! We thought about Five Guys for dinner on Saturday and wound up getting frozen yogurt instead. #noshame

    Those salt and pepper shakers are so cute it's ridiculous.

  5. Oh my gosh - I was just thinking of Nsync's holiday album...I think I have it too!!! I haven't had five guys in so long - I'm drooling right now!

  6. Ah, Target, land of constant temptation. I miss it so.

  7. Mmmm Five Guys and Maggiano's...two of my favorites! I own that NSync Christmas album too, it's a modern classic, haha.

  8. nsync Christmas, yes!!!!! I love wondering around Target and finding great deals! And your salt and pepper shakers are adorable and I am totally jealous and need some. You are the third person that have posted ones like that and I am like....hello I need!!!!

  9. Sometimes you just NEED grease in a bag for dinner ;) We hosted tons of people over the weekend- so luckily the rest of this week/holiday I just get to ATTEND and not get anything else ready. Until Christmas at least hehe!

  10. I LOVE Five Guys. Their burgers are awesome. I also like the fries. The cajun ones.

    1. I was jussssssssssssssssstttttt about to recommend the cajun fries. Soooooo good. Drooling now. :] // ▲ ▲

  11. Yeah...definitely no jacket needed and even my scarf feels like overkill today. I drive by a 5 guys everyday on my way home and never stop. It's just too tempting to eat it all, but Maggiano's I would definitely stop for!! Ugh, I might have to brave Walmart to get that CD.

  12. Those little publix salt & pepper shakers are consistent in my parents' house every Thanksgiving! love it.

  13. I've still NEVER had five guys! I need to try it out! I also LOVE your salt and pepper shakers!

  16. $5 for the NSYNC Christmas album?! YOU HIT THE MOTHER FUCKING MUSIC LOTTERY!!!!

  17. so nice to see the Gators winning. I would love a win against FSU...wouldn't that just be amazing. I'm praying that our boys can make that miracle happen for Muschamps last game. :)

  18. Oh man--Five Guys! Why did you have to remind me that that exists? ;)

  19. OMG, I love Five Guys. There's one near my work. I go there waaaaay to often for lunch. It's just so good! The *NSYNC Christmas CD is still my most favorite Christmas CD of all times. #sorrynotsorry
