Weekend Wonders

Weekend Wonders is a new little thing that I’m going to do to recap my weekends. It is named this because of how incredibly wonderful weekends are. Really it’s just an excuse to dump a bunch of pictures on my blog so that I can go back and enjoy them later.

I had a very lovely weekend which consisted of food, food, puppies, friends, chickens, and food. It was delightful.

I hosted a little dinner party with some of my favorite Nashville blogger friends. It’s so nice to be around friends who won’t judge you for taking pictures of every single aspect of your meal. They might, however, judge me for taking candid photos of them taking photos :) Sorry Mary, I couldn’t resist this one.

The dinner party itself is a colab that I’m doing with one of my new favorite food bloggers, Sara from Cake Over Steak, and I can’t wait to share all of it with you soon!

Right as my guests arrived I remembered that the chickens were still running around in the backyard and I needed to get them back in their baby chick home or else I’d worry about them all night.


^^^This is Ursula. She is named this because she is the meanest of all the chickens. We love her anyways.


That tarp covered thing is their almost finished chicken coop. It just needs a roof and the finished run attached. OH and some paint. I can’t wait to paint it! Hopefully they’ll be in their new home by this weekend.


The only bad part of my weekend is the cold that I acquired. By Sunday morning I had a full blown sinus headache that left me wanting to do nothing but sleep. This worked out as all of my plans for the day were pretty much canceled due to storms and rain. So, I enjoyed a quiet, lazy Sunday in with leftovers and lots of puppy cuddles.

And y’all, I bought my first succulents and officially joined the succulents fan club (not a real thing (that I know of)). I want 800 more of these all around my house now!

Well friends, that’s all. I hope your weekend was as lovely as mine. I hope you feel well rested, well fed, and ready to take on the week!

  1. Oh no, I’m sorry to hear you got sick. Hope you’re feeling better! It was so great to meet you Saturday. The food was wonderful and I can’t wait to see the post.

  2. I woke up with a cold on Sunday too!!!! I seem to be almost better already though, thank goodness. Can’t wait to share this dinner party with everyone – I started editing photos last night and I’m exciteddddddd :-D

    • Where to start? Probably a very solid CB, a CAM, and a GK. Ricketts is no long term answer, and I’m not sure about Gleeson, truly – seems very injury prone. I’d love to be wrong about that. Also, since we1#82&7;re wishing, a LB and RB who know how to defend (Jewsbury played very well at RB this year).

  3. haha, that is a lovely shot of me for sure. and the succulent fan club is REAL. people are obsessed with those! so hot right now.
