Summer is HERE!

Hey friends!

It was definitely hard for me to adjust back to reality today since this past weekend was filled with loads of activities as well as a bit of fun in the sun. Here is a peek into my pretty awesome weekend.


My weekend fun actually started Friday morning since I attended a Social Media Breakfast for local social media enthusiast like myself. The meeting was held at E’s Kitchen which is located in Parc Lafayette.

socialmediabreakfastAlthough my initial intention was to participate on behalf of my employer, I actually also gained loads of insight on how to better promote the blog too. It was a very educational meeting, and I cannot wait to participate again next month.

Once I had clocked out for the weekend, I headed home to freshen up for a dinner date with my best friend, Kristin. Since my hair was looking pretty miserable after a full day, I decided to pin it up into a bun for the night. I used this easy tutorial; however, my bun didn’t come out so messy.

After dinner we headed back to my place for a movie and wine night. I had a absolute blast catching up. Many giggles were shared, and we both agreed that it felt like an old night back in our college town house.


Brett and I spent Saturday afternoon browsing for new pots and pans at Bed, Bath and Beyond. We took pictures of the sets that we liked the most, and have intentions of reading reviews on our favorites before purchasing. We also visited Target so that we could purchase a few things for the house with a gift card we received as a wedding gift.

Later that evening we joined our friends Rodney and Morgan at LT’s Seafood and Steakhouse. That night I ordered five boiled crabs, boiled mushrooms and a boiled onion. The crabs were full of meat and flavor, and I was definitely one happy, Southern girl after the feast.

But at the same time I felt compelled to support the Rajun Cajuns as well since they represent my hometown of Lafayette. The game was definitely close and intense, but in the end LSU was the victor.

After the game we played Cards Against Humanity. I had only ever saw the game played a few times on Ellen, so I was very eager to play that night. This game was all sorts of fun, and we definitely shared a few moments where we laughed until our stomachs hurt.


Our weekend ended with a day out on the boat in Henderson. We enjoyed the day cruising and wake-boarding with Brett’s coworkers Toby and Colin.

Once we returned home, we watched the second ULL vs. LSU series game. Since LSU won again, they will now advance to the World Series in Omaha! Geaux Tigers!!!
