Weekending

It's been a hot minute since I linked up with B for Weekending. I didn't have a crazy weekend, but it was lovely just the same.

Saturday, I ran, did some yoga and mowed the lawn and walked around feeling like a badass for the rest of the day. Then we got ready and headed to Highlands Fest which is basically a big block party, or that's how they describe it. We went with my best friend and her husband.

Highlands Fest Facebook

Lots of little vendors, food stalls, live music and lots.of.people. It was tons of fun and I meant to take more photos, but I didn't, so.... I shall share lots of pictures of myself instead.

Selfies on the way are mandatory. No idea why but I was really feeling like I looked like my mummy.


bestie is wearing F21 leggings, LC blouse, Target flats
I am wearing Express tunic, Old Navy Jeans + JC Penney flats

I trained KC so well to take photos but for some reason yesterday he was going above and beyond the 'holding the camera higher than eye level' and was holding it so high it was hilarious.


So we had to take matters into our own hands - more selfies.


Like a lot more. Someone said we could pass as twins - not true but what a lovely compliment!


And then my bestie's husband took a photo and took it to a whole new level, literally.




Then we stopped an unsuspecting passerby to take a photo of the 4 of us - the awesome foursome - and he said "say 'I'm drunk' "and we all laughed awkwardly because none of us were.


We got home fairly late for having started so early and crashed. The next morning I woke up to the smell of deliciousness - KC had popped out to the store to get me some English baked beans which I was deliriously happy about. He normally doesn't let me buy them because they are kind of expensive for beans but they remind me of home and make me so happy.


KC bought me this cute ear warmer thingy from the Fest that will be perfect for NYC - I mean, I picked it out and paid for it - but it doesn't count for shopping because he bought it for me, ok? It was only $5. Sorry for the awkward photo.


The rest of Sunday was spent cleaning, reading, blogging, a lovely nap and lots of kitty cuddles. I love weekends that are a nice balance of fun & lazy. Don't you?

  1. Gorgeous ladies!!! That festival looks like so much fun! And that hat is way too adorable to have only been 5 bucks.

  2. hahahahahaha seriously I am dying laughing about mowing the lawn and yoga....then feeling like a badass ;-) Also about training KC to take pictures "up and down" because that's exactly how Mark is trained. I occasionally like to yell "use those long arms the right way babe"......or something awkward like that. You looked absolutely gorgeous and totally not like a mommy at all. I adore that you got the deets on your bestie's outfit also. I am slightly jealous you are wearing jeans and not sweating to death.....where is Fall seriously? xoxoxo

  16. Geez! You must have burned about a million calories on Saturday! Well done for staying active on the weekends. It must not be scorching hot where you are. It was still really hot here over the weekend but today is nice and cool...thank god, I couldn't wait much longer for Fall!!

  35. Aw, what a FUN weekend! I want to go to Highland fest! You and your bestie are both so pretty and have amazing hair. That's funny that someone thought you were twins. I would definitely believe it if you told me you were sisters, but maybe after a few shots of whiskey or beer or whatever everyone was drinking there I'd be on the twin boat too. Fun weekend recap, and now I'm wondering if and how English beans are different than regular baked beans?

  36. Next up = pictures taken from a hot air balloon :) haha
    You ladies are lovely!
    I love your head wrap... You know me as a knitter, I'm sizing it up on the yarn & the stitches :) That's some bulky yarn... I love bulk in fall & winter.

    You and your bestie are SO pretty, and you really do look a lot alike!

    Love the hat, so cute on you!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Love the ear-warmer! Definitely will need it for NYC. And it's funny, as soon as I saw the pic of you side-by-side I was like wow, they look a lot alike! And then a few seconds later I saw the twins comment like umm hi I'm Captain Obvious, apparently. Sounds like a sweet weekend, glad you got to enjoy :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. ohhh I love that ear warmer! I've always wanted one of those things, but it totally doesn't get nearly cold enough here for that mess. You and your bestie could totally pass as sisters. (I thought that before you mentioned someone said ya'll looked like twins). Mmmmm it's never a bad time for beans!

    ReplyDelete
