Wonderful Weekend in Photos

Tampa's finally getting a break from the rain for a few hours, and things are definitely looking soggy around these parts. I'm safe from major flooding where I live, but definitely keep Florida, and all of the Gulf Coast, in your thoughts, as the rain picking up to today will lead to flooded roads, rising water near homes, and dangerous driving situations. 

This weekend was one of those weekends without anything planned (except Leah's baby shower on Sunday), and the rain was sort of welcomed. It made being lazy and doing house chores all day and getting to do lists done really acceptable. Not that I need rain to keep me inside, but something about it makes me feel like there's nothing else I should be doing. Do you know what I mean? In fact, after biking (almost 9 miles on the stationary bike) and swimming (1000 yards) on Friday, I didn't even workout this weekend! It was a well-enjoyed break.

Here are a few shots {from instagram} of what I did do this weekend.
1. I wore my new necklace that Annemarie sent me on Friday and got several compliments.
2. I got two new additions to my arm stacks. I got the neon yellow skull above and a red one (you can get them at BaubleBar).
 3. Tim still hadn't gotten fitted for his tux, so we headed to his fitting on Friday and stopped at Pinkberry for a treat! I got the Peanut Butter and it was delicious.
4. I treated myself to a pedicure on Saturday morning and started Mindy Kaling's Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me. So far, very funny!
 5. On a Target run for a children's book and some gift wrap, I had to pick up these amazing looking berries that were at amazing prices.
6. And somehow the Michelob Ultra Light Cider I've been reading about on everyone's blogs and some hint of lime chips jumped into the cart. I was mad that they made it in there when I got home, but I figured if they made it home I should probably enjoy them. ;)
 7. I've been taking more outfit of the day photos (and posting them on instagram @lttlegrlbigwrld), and this was my Sunday baby shower outfit.
8. Before leaving Leah's shower, I wanted to grab just one picture. I'm sure she'll do a recap of her whole shower on her blog. It was very nice. These are a few of the girls that are friends because of our husbands/fiances/boyfriends. It's so nice to have such a fun group to hang out with.
9. And lastly, I made raspberry and lime infused water when I got home from Target, and after a day to really sit, it was delicious! All I did was muddle half a pack of raspberries into a pitcher of water and then added the juice of one lime. When I poured it into my glass I added another handful of raspberries just to get the full effect.
On top of everything you see here, I also got all the laundry in the house done (somehow the washer and dryer are currently sitting empty...I think that may be a first), did the dishes, organized the downstairs a bit, wrote out my rehearsal dinner invitations (that I still need to address), and caught up on blogging! What a weekend!

How was your weekend?
What was one fun thing that happened?

Oooo love everything about this post! I can't wait for Leah to share her shower -- I've been following her blog for a while now! How fun you all know each other! My shower is this Saturday in Hyde Park. I hope it's just as lovely! ;) The water looks divine and I'm EYEING that cider. Counting down til Sept. That's going to be one of my first drinks.

I have to admit that when I saw your water on instagram, I thought: that would be great . . . with vodka! Ha. Love that necklace and bracelet Annemarie sent you--how sweet! I've been wanting more Stella & Dot stuff lately but have to reign it in!

that photo with the chips, cider and berries looks exactly like my fridge minus the bee and chips. bought LOTS of fruit this weekend, why because it is summer and i will meet my yearly fruit quota during the summer months

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

I pretty much love everything about your weekend. You are the person to hang out with! Fashion, food, beverages. Can we be BFFs? :)

OK I'm convinced. I'm buying the red skull bracelet!

Here from Life Lately. You look gorgeous in our yellow dress. Looks like such a nice few days for you!

I really like the yellow sundress you are wearing for your friend's baby shower. It is a perfect summer color and the ruffles and side tie gives a sundress the extra flare that I often think they need! Very cute!

I found your blog from the YOLO linkup and it's adorable! I love Pinkberry but I'm so sad that there isn't one where I live now. You look so pretty in the yellow dress! I'm your newest follower :)
