Rainy Weekend

The sunshine state hasn't been very sunny lately.. and that's an understatement. Unfortunately, it looks like the next several days are going to be the same, but thankfully it should be sunny again by the weekend.


The only good thing coming out of all this rain, is the excuse to finally whip out my Hunters which I wore out for dinner with my fav neighbor-friends on Friday night.



Finally tried out a local German restaurant which was a fun little spot with live music and delicious food and German beers. Thankfully, I wasn't talked into trying out das boot as I'm sure I would have spilled it everywhere trying to choke it down. 




Originally, all I had planned for my rainy Saturday was running errands and snuggling up to watch college football, but at the last minute we were given free passes to the Oktoberfest downtown. Admission included unlimited beer and food samples so even in the relentless rain we ventured out to try out some great samples. So many pumpkin and blueberry flavors, and there was even a tent serving root beer floats made of chocolate flavored beer and coffee or vanilla ice cream which was absolutely delish! I nicknamed the event from beer fest to mud fest because after all the rain over the past week and during the event, the field was a mud pit. Everyone was soaked and/or covered in mud and there were even a lot of people who had given up on their sandals and were walking barefoot through the mud... it was that bad! But I honestly feel that it made it more fun.



I also picked up some wall art at Bed, Bath, & Beyond and scored some great deals. I wanted to get something to hang up in the home office, and got what I feel was an amazing deal! The piece was originally $59.99 then marked down to $19.99 on clearance with an additional 33% off. I then used a 20% off coupon (never ever go to BBB without a 20% coupon!) and only paid $10 for it. I also picked up a beachy piece to go above the soaking tub in the master bath and used another 20% off coupon. Great savings!

  14. I miss the rain!! As much as I love summer, and the heat, and getting to wear shorts/be barefoot all the time; I miss the rain - the sound, the smell, the wardrobe, the cuddles! Haha, gotta love the cuddles.

    Oh, and OMG I LOVE THOSE PICTURES IN YOUR BATHROOM - I may or may not be stalking Bed Bath and Beyond trying to find them for myself ;)

  15. Ok, give me the scoop on the Hunters. I've been thinking about getting some but they are a little pricey for only being able to wear them when it rains. But.. they're just so darn cute. Are they comfortable/a good purchase??
