Weekend Recap (and a three day work week!)

Mondays can kiss my grits. I had a fantastic weekend, folks! It was jam packed with plenty of fun and I was bummed to go to work, this morning. Lucky for me, I only have tomorrow and Wednesday to get through and then I have a four day weekend, WOOT!

Like I said this weekend was pretty fab; from an entirely free night at Busch Garden's Howl -O- Scream (thanks to Yelp, seriously start reviewing places, people) to free martinis and appetizers at a new bar in town, to a trip to Ikea with the spouse, I was not ready to come back in to reality this morning...for real.

Like I said before, Friday night we were able to attend an entirely free night of fun. Not gonna lie, I don't like being too scared but when Yelp offered their Elite peeps an event at Howl-O-Scream, I figured I'd face my fears for a night out like that! I don't have many photos because it rained, I was spooked and *may* have had a few too many and didn't want to take photos. But I had a blast!

After a few drinkies, I thought taking a photo of this bumper car was *so* necessary...?
Saturday, littlest sister, my cousin and I went to Bar Louie for free martinis and starters. I frequent the one in Tampa pretty regularly, but now there is one in Clearwater as well. I am just about equal distance from the Tampa locale and Clearwater spot so I get the best of both worlds! So, free 'tinis and apps for two and a half hours + some girl time = success!



There has been a huge debate at Casa de Crews over getting new bedroom furniture; specifically a new dresser. Hubs and I currently have separate dressers but they're old and take up too much space...I kid you not when I say I have wanted a dresser since we got married (um, seventeen months ago) and I've had enough of the unorganized chaos! So Saturday, my very sweet husband taped the Bucs game and took me to Ikea....we didn't buy anything but I think we may have come to an agreement! It's a start?
...and a second four drawer dresser...
And Sunday was also the year anniversary from when we first got Gigi and she became my baby! We "celebrated" with doggy ice cream for the pups <3



How was your weekend?!

XOXO,
Nichole

  1. I've read a few recaps from the Yelp event and have to admit I'm a little jealous! And I totally thought you were feeding your dogs queso when I looked at the pictures before reading that it was ice cream! Ha.
