Weekend Shenanigans

Hi sweeties!

You guys, I finally have something to link up to Weekend Shenanigans! 
Usually Monday rolls around and I think back on our weekend and decide that I have nothing blog worthy to talk about. No, I didn't do anything that great this weekend, but I did take pictures of some random things. I mean, if you have pictures, you have something right? 

Friday, the weather was perrrffeect. Garrett and I took advantage of that and went for a jog. {I know, I'm just as shocked as you are.} Don't worry, we made up for it afterwards by grilling sliders and hot dogs. YUM.

Garrett is serious when it comes to grilling.
{Don't laugh at our ghetto grill. It was free on Craigslist several years ago.}

We topped off our wild night with an old fashioned crossword puzzle.
I know, we really need to settle down.

Saturday we slept in and then had an early dinner at Jason's Deli. Oh we love Jason's. The food is delicious and it doesn't hurt that you get free ice cream with your meal!

I normally get the Beefeater, but I opted for a dumb salad instead. G had soup.

One of Garrett's grad school friends recently moved back to Denver, and we hadn't seen him yet, so we spent Saturday night at his apartment. His sweet girlfriend was in town too! We played beer pong and talked until 2am. And, I discovered a new favorite drink. Coke + Pinnacle Whipped Vodka. Try it! It tastes like a Vanilla Coke from Sonic. 

Tim and Jessica.
They beat us in beer pong, but only by one cup!

Sunday was a laaazzzy day. We ran some errands, watched the ACMs, Game of Thrones, and a couple episodes of Arrested Development.

These "errands" consisted of going to Starbucks and Target {both of which I had gift cards!}.

I tried a "secret menu" drink at Starbucks: Banana Cream Pie. SO good!
I also had a chocolate cake cakepop.

At Target I found this:

It's like a water bottle but it looks like a Mason Jar with a lid and a straw. So cute! I may need this soon. *HINT HINT* hun! ; )

 The ACMs were fun. I loved that Garth Brooks and George Strait performed! Hearing Garth again was probably my favorite part of the show. He used to be my favorite! 

It also reaffirmed how adorable I think Hunter Hayes is, how much I love Miranda Lambert, and that Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton are funny and easy on the eyes. 
Did you watch? What did you think?

Linking up with Sami!

Ps. THANK YOU so so so so so much to those of you who linked up for Never Have I Ever last week! You certainly made our day and we loved reading all of your posts!


  1. Hey whit!! As a new(ish) blogger I'm trying to be better and get more involved. Your's and Brit's posts are always fun to read.

    I've contacted to the carabox lady because that seems like legit fun. But I'm confused on all this link up stuff...can you help me out some lol??

  2. Whoa now I'm going to need you to calm down with all the wild and crazy crosswords! ;) haha jk Those sliders look delicious! I'm glad you had a great weekend!!

  3. Missed you on our blate this weekend!! We don't have Jason's Deli but we did in college and we went there ALL the time for the free ice cream. I'd always get a salad so I felt better about the multiple ice cream cones I would eat! ALSO, LOVE that whipped vodka! I tried the cookie dough kind and it was even better! Makes everything taste like milk shakes!

  4. Omg, you've made me so hungry! Those sliders look so good!!

    I just discovered the whipped vodka too. I'll have to try it with coke now. Thanks for the tip! :)

  5. Y'all had such a fun weekend!! Those sliders...oh my gosh...seriously drooling over here. They look SO good! Great job on the grill, G!

    Okay okay, wait, how have I not heard of this "secret" banana cream pie drink? It looks amazing! Is it as good as chick fil a's? I need to know this please.

    I don't even like salad (at all) but that one from Jason's actually looks yummy to me. Either I'm just past ready for lunch or that thing actually tastes good. Did you like it?

    MISS YOU!!!!!!!!

    1. Oh and "I know, we really need to settle down" cracked me up. You so funny!

  6. I definitely wouldn't laugh at your "ghetto grill" but those hot dogs made me giggle for some reason.

  7. Can you believe you were outside grilling and now we have a blizzard warning tonight? Ugh. I hate it! I have always wanted to try a secret menu item from Starbucks but I worry they won't know what I'm talking about haha. That mason jar cup is so cute!

  8. This whole post is makng me super hungry!! Love!

  9. A few things: That pepper jack cheese is calling my name. Oh em gee that cup is adorable. And I agree with you about Garth and George, I loved hearing them again. They were my dad's favorites growing up so we always had them on in the house! Looks like a super fun weekend!

  10. I want that mason jar cup ! Seriously I'm obsessed with everything mason jar. Looks like you guys hang a great weekend!

  11. A dumb salad! Ha, ha. Why am I not surprised that you would call it that? LOL. It looks really good though. Free ice cream? That's so cool. I'd go there a lot too for that alone. That mason jar cup is so cute! Sounds like a nice weekend mix of getting out AND staying home.

  12. Sounds like you had a great weekend! Love that mason jar cup!!

  13. I love Miranda and Blake. :) She killed it on the ACMs

  14. sounds like a great weekend to me - the food looks so good - i laughed that you called your salad dumb. my mom almost always orders a salad, and where i love them, i make fun of her and tell her it's dumb and boring to always get one. the mason jar cup is so cute! and the starbucks treat sounds amazing! glad you had a great one!
    thank you so much for your sweet, sweet words, whitney!
    have a great tuesday! xoxox

  15. Hahaha !!! I love that you said you both ran but made up for it by grilling! My kinda gal!

    I'm trying to remember the last time I ordered an entree for my meal. I really need to get with the program. I'm serious. My a$$ is getting HUGE!

    And now I'm definitely stopping at Starbucks today! :)

    Looks like a fun weekend!

  16. hey, a free grill is a free grill! and looks like the food on it is tasty :)

    xoxo, Amy @ Interpret As You May

  17. I'm so happy it's grilling season. And if it's a free grill and it works, I'd say that's a huge win.

  18. Those burgers look simply AMAZING!!! Makes me want one and I usually don't eat burgers! LOL!

  19. Target is the WORST and BEST I want to buy EVERYTHING!! That mason jar cup is ADORABLE.
