A little weekend recap....

Well, it's Monday....yet again....and I again, am not ready for it, but I did have quite the fabulous weekend!

Friday, I had date night with my sweetie - and although it did not go as planned, it was a good and very much needed night. I love you, Frankie!

Saturday, after a lazy morning of breakfast in bed and a little cuddle time with the hubs watching "What Happens In Vegas", we got up and got ready for Momma'a arrival! Mom got there and the 3 of us went to lunch at California Pizza Kitchen. Now let me just say, I am a HUGE Nashville Originals fan, meaning I almost always try and go to a local Nashville Restaurant rather than a chain - especially when we have out-of-towners. Nashville has an ever-growing plethora of locally owned and run restaurants and they are all fabulous and unique to Nashville in their own way and include all of my fav restaurants! With that being said, I absolutely LOVE California Pizza Kitchen, not for the pizza or the fact that they don't serve champagne - but that's another story, but for their amazing plethora of salads! (wow, who would have thought I could use the word "plethora" twice in one post!) they have so many and they are all SOOOOO yummy and fabulous! Great lunch spot! Oh yeah, and there Avocado Club Rolls....I mean, just look at them....one of the most fabulous things you can put in your mouth....

Then, Trey made his exit and we head to Signature Salon for some girly pampering! Mom and I LOVE this place, good prices, they people are always SOOOO nice, AND they give you wine! What more could you want?!?! Well, maybe more than one glass of wine, that was a tease!  So we had manis, pedis, and wine......it was a fabulous way to spend the afternoon!!!

Next, we went shopping! I have had gift cards left over from the wedding and Christmas burning a hole through my wallet for the past few months and I was determined to uses them. I was trying to save the Macy's gift cards for something for the house.....but we got just about all the kitchen and bedroom stuff we wanted so I have had a hard time making a decision.....so I bought Trey 12 pairs of socks (I know, we are already that couple....but he has been complaining about socks for weeks so when I found some Polo socks on sale for $6 I jumped on it) and I also found a pair of adorable skinny jeans for $20! Mom got a couple really cute wrap sweaters, so it was a semi-successful shopping trip! We head home to get ready for dinner and grab the hubs!

We went to Tin Angel (a Nashville Original) and it was soooooo yummy!!!! I do believe that Tin Angel is my favorite restaurant in Nashville!! If you haven't been, go! We went home and had a few more cocktails while playing Scrabble (which my ever so sweet husband ran out and bought before dinner because he knew I had been wanting it) and had a blast! And let me also note, I was the Scrabble champ of the evening winning with the word Zen on a Triple Word Score - yeah, whats up?!

Sunday morning we took mom to Le Peep for brunch, bloody mary's, and mimosas! She quickly hopped on the road so she could get to Tunica in time to meet Daddy for the game. Trey and I ran a few errands at Cool Springs, where I proceeded to get sucked in to the Forever 21 accessories store......I swear I haven't been shopping for stuff for me in months, but twice in one weekend, wow!!! Then we head to the store to get a few things for the games! I made some munchies and we headed over to a friend of ours house to watch some of the last of the 2009/10 football season. Trey is a big Peyton Manning fans for obvious reasons, so were pulling for the Colts in the first game - and Peyton didn't let us down. Next, was the Saints VS Favre, oh sorry, The Vikings. I am a big Saints fan, Mississippi doesn't have an NFL team - so our team is the Saints. They have had an awesome season and they have NEVER been to the Super Bowl. And let me just say, that was one of the most STRESSFUL games I have ever watched! I absolutely HATE NFL overtime, I get so worked up and stressed...so after a game like that and then goes into overtime....I was a mess! But when the Saints won the coin toss I breathed a little and then not again until that ball made its way through the goal post and I saw the refs throw up their arms! After watching Ole Miss and TN all season, I was prepared for a let down........so you can imagine what we all did!!



So, my Saints are going to the Super Bowl!!!! WOO HOO!!!!! I never thought I would have to root against a Manning......but I guess there is a first time for everything! :) GEAUX SAINTS!!!!!

And thank you again, Momma for such a fabulous weekend!!! We had so much fun with you and cannot wait to see all of you in a couple weeks!
