Over the Weekend

As you can see from this picture-overloaded post we did quite a few things this weekend. The thing we did most often was take lil' Maeby for walks - sometimes even twice a day! She loved it. We try to walk through a few parking lots to keep those nails filed down. 


 I made a special trip to McDonalds to give the Frozen Strawberry Lemonade a try - I'd heard quite a few fabulous things about the frozen drink and let me just say - all the rave is correct! It's delicious. A perfect drink for summer time. 


I found time to lay out by the pool. It was fabulous. I hadn't sunbathed since our honeymoon - so it felt lovely  to soak in that vitamin D. (The pool is behind me - I had to adjust with the sun, you know how that is)


Saturday we traveled up to Birmingham to meet my uncle who was driving through on his trip from NC to NM. Our favorite part of trips (long or short) is stopping by the gas station and loading up with snacks. I found cinnamon buttons! A delicious classic! 

We me my uncle at PF Changs for lunch. It was delicious. It had been a while since my last visit to the Changs - and as you can see... I pigged out! Mmm.



Franncakes and I also stopped by a new local flea market. The grand opening is this weekend, but they were open early! I found a gorgeous and reasonably priced globe! The paper was in tact and the brass looked great. Score! I want a couple more (all different) to start a mini collection to put on display. I also found a purse with markings "JM" in cursive. I'm not sure if it's name brand or not, but it's made well and looks nice. And it was a whopping $10. Finally, I snagged a lightly used Mariah Carey Musicbox CD. I already had it on my ipod, but a physical CD is fabulous to have - and for $3, I couldn't pass it up! Quite the steal!

LOL the cinnamon stuff brings back memories... I made a three-week-tour through California, Arizona, Nevada and Utah with my parents and grandparents in 1992. I was 11 years old, and naturally we bought some sweets at a gas station. Now, Tic Tac is popular in Germany too, but we had never seen the red ones. So we tried them, not knowing what "cinnamon" meant. Needless to say, expecting something like mint or orange they tasted quite yucky and it took us some time to figure out what taste that actually was. But I guess it just isn't our "thing", as the cinnamon variety has yet to arrive in Germany ;-D

Relatable Style

I have a coupon for a free frozen strawberry lemonade! I really need to get over there and try it. I was hoping to lay out over the weekend but I didn't have time...you are making me jealous!

I hope Canada gets the frozen strawberry lemonade drink too because it looks absolutely delish! And I'm so jealous of you for getting to soak up the sun at the pool - it's still freezing here! :-(

Perfect weekend, indeed! I love "red hots" and P.F. Chang!! :)

This looks heavenly! It makes me want to cry that you have weather nice enough to lay out. Our time will come I guess!

I collect globes and have been looking for a cheap one for a project I would like to do with it!

Melanie said...

I always feel like my weekends go by really quickly and I have relatively little to show for them. I guess it's all the dog walks! :)

The globe is really cute, I love the idea of having a little collection of them.
