I Need A Weekend From My Weekend.

That’s exactly how I feel.
Like pheeeeeeeew. With exactly 8 e’s.
I wish you could have seen how close I had to get to my computer screen just to count how many e’s were scrunched into that word. I think that’s a sign I need glasses.
That or a sign I need to stop drinking a bottle of whiskey before writing a blog post.
Psych. I haven’t had any whiskey kids. Although now that I mention it…
{Father—that is a joke. No need to pick up the phone to tell me that I really shouldn’t drink a bottle of whiskey..}

So back to what I was saying. This weekend was 100% amazeballs.
Speaking of, my husband threatened to say a really bad word every time I say “amazeballs”.
He thinks the word is stupid. Clearly he has no brain. Or taste in the English language for that matter. However I threatened to kick him in the “you know what” if he did. And then I realized that would end any sort of hope we have when it comes to producing children.  Although now that I mention it, we are planning on adopting so I better get kicking. Sorry husband.
If you just weren’t so amazeballs….

Two times I have gotten off subject now.
Good work Erin.
And now I am talking in third person. I should probably end this post now.
Okay but seriously. This weekend was fantastic. And full of Friends. Sunshine. Family. Boats. Drinks. Water. Laughter. Motorcycle Rides. Sleep (barely). Food. Pictures. And last but not least, Luke Bryan. Okay, so he was only in my dreams but still.
You know it’s really good weekend when you find yourself drinking margaritas with 80 yr old neighbors at 10 pm on a Sunday night.
Party animals we are, I know.

Here are a frick ton {translation: a lot} of pictures from the weekend.

 Tank//Skirt//Sandals: Target {Recent} Necklace: Banana Republic

 Ring: Miss Chic//Watch: Charming Charlies//Wine: In my stomach
 Dress: Target {recent}

Tank//Shorts: Kohls

...And the fun didn't end. Monday evening I hosted book club. We kinda forgot to discuss the book we read and just drank sangria instead. Gosh, I love book club.

Sleep. You sound pretty darn appealing right now.
Watch out because I’m coming to get ya…..

Ugh. I just envisioned myself getting tickled really bad.
Remind me to tell you my “stop tickling me” tactic sometime.
It may or may not involve me screaming rape at the top of my lungs.
With the windows open in our house.
Needless to say, our neighbors don’t talk to us much.
Except the 80 year old margarita drinking ones.
They know how to get down.



  1. That pizza looks "amazeballs"

  2. can those target clothes be any cuter?

    Wait what brand is the yellow dress- cuz you know I went to target today looking for that skirt you posted on twitter. Now I must have the dress- i love it! And do you have the sangria recipe? Just fruit and white wine? xoxo

  28. 1) I want that pizza--I'm just starving to death, clearly 2) I want all of your clothes...always so fashionable! 3) I could use some of that SkinnyGirl 4) I think we'd be bffs in real life--you absolutely crack me up and I'd just spend all my time laughing at your hilarious self.

  29. Awesome weekend!!! Ps. Amazeballs happens to be coolest word ever!!!

  30. What a fantastic weekend you had, wow!
    Loving the yellow target dress, makes me wish we had a target here in rainy UK.
    That sangria looks delicious, homemade? If so I would loooooooove the recipe ( that's love with 8 o's) ;)
    Oh, and I want to join your drinks/ book club, hahaha.
    Have a great week Erin!

  31. Love the Chevron dress but I can't find it on Target.com :( Also love your suit!

  32. I've not seen him, but love his music. He came to Macon last year and sold out the place (of course it helps that he is from 2 hours South of here). His tickets are reasonalby priced . I imagine it's an awesome, energetic, fun show.

  33. I got the same skirt only in blue and white from Target!

  34. Looks like it was a lovelyyyyyy weekend! My favorite: Cross-eyed Erin. Classic. :)

  36. Looks like a great weekend....as always! So jealous!

    Can I just say that I absolutely love that you got in the water with your niece while wearing your clothes? I bet she thinks that you are the best aunt in the world!

  37. you're telling me you got that yellow and grey dress from tarjay?!?! NEED to buy that asap. I was going to come over last night for sangria too. Let's make this happen. mwah!

  38. Hahaha. This was one of the first things I read today. Amazeballs, indeed.

  40. You're too cute! Thanks for sharing your weekend with us! Amazeballs!! My husband would say bad words too if he heard me say that! :) MEN!?!?!

  41. I don't like the world amazeballs because I've only ever READ it. Like, I feel as if I would mispronounce it if I ever gave it a try. Does it sound as stupid as it looks?! ;)

    that Target dress IS AMAZING. And is that first outfit the one hubbs didn't like?! loser! ;) You are smokin as always!!!!

  42. First, I love that you used the term amazeballs. I use it all of the time, I'm glad I'm now not the only one I know (: That sangria looks pretty amazeballs! Yum!

  45. I am SUPER jealous of your weekend. Stupid fires are keeping us inside :( Can I come play to get away from all the smoke? Haha.

  46. Got my first purchase from Miss Chic yesterday, and I'm in love!! Thanks for the introduction!

  47. Poor hubby! He hears a word he thinks is stupid and then gets threatened with a kick to his amazeballs! Haha!

    I totally love your house! I really want to live in your closet just so I have access to your back yard and your awesome social gatherings... when you start looking to adopt, just remember I am available. Granted I am older than you, but thats a technicality!

    xoxo Love you :)


  48. What a fun weekend! I loooove that skirt (I'm thinking of jumping on the maxi skirt bandwagon), and that pizza is not helping my growling (roaring) belly.

  49. What does it say that I recognize and own half the Target clothes you post here and on Instagram???! Love it, happy you can shop again. Not shopping is TORTURE.

  50. Two things: How do you feel about the skinny girl cocktails? Which are your favorite? I have yet to try them, therefore I need suggestions. Have you tried any of the skinny girl wine?

    What kind of camera do you use to take your pictures? <-- whooaaa that was random. Seriously, though! Your photos always look uhhhh-mazing!

  51. LOVE your chevron dress!!! so cute! and i want your freakin body! lol!


  52. you are so entertaining!! i LOL everytime i read one of your posts :) LOVE that target dress!!!! and is your bathing suit from there too?! your outfits are awesome

  53. That IS a super cute dress. And I just got exhausted looking through your weekend pics. Talk about weekend warrior! I am also a new reader. Yay! :)

  54. All super cute outfits! Love the yellow top! And that skirt!! I wish we had 80 yr old margarita neighbors. We just have my in laws... and they don't drink margaritas.... lame. hahaha

  55. I love your blog! I followed a few days ago...I think from the group giveaway? And it took a bit to update in reader! So fun! You take great pictures...I'm heading straight to target to look for that dress. And I follow you on instagram and was sitting with my fiance when you posted the picture of the pink top and the maxi skirt. I showed him your comment about your husband asking if you were kidding. I showed him mostly because that's totally something that he would say. He always says "is that what you're wearing?" when he knows good and well I just went and got ready. Ha! Love it!

  56. I feel like I did drink a bottle of whiskey last night - so seeing these alcohol pictures def had my stummy churning!!!!
    Couldn't stop looking though - my Pinterest style board thanks you and your friends for being so fashionable!!
    P.S. A CHEVRON bikini!!??? Is this real life!!??


I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
