Weekending is Fun

and exhausting! As I mentioned in Friday's post, the mister was out of town. My mom came down and after a quick meetup with my former neighbor, my mom and I had dinner and then headed over to my usual Friday spot in the summer, the NCMA for their outdoor summer movie series. To Kill A Mockingbird was this week's movie and it was packed! They made an announcement that it was one of the largest crowds in their history and it showed!

I also got to chat with my girl Meghan for a few minutes! I also think that half of my facebook was there too!

Saturday I hit up the new Ross that opened up down the street and man, dangerous! My mom headed out and I got busy making goodies for a birthday party. I made a few sangrias, a beer cheese macaroni with a pretzel crust and a peanut butter gelato, brownie and oreo pie. It was all really good!

Yesterday I headed to Durham to get some shopping in and celebrated National Ice Cream day in grand fashion with a creme brulee milkshake that had a little bourbon added in for good measure. I also may have paid a little visit to Sephora and Nordstrom. Gift cards for the win!

Then last night I finished cleaning and caught up on Sense8. I am addicted to this show, so freaking good!

How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?
