Hey hey, and happy Monday!
So how was your weekend?
Was it wild? Was it crazy? Was it MARVELOUS?!
Join my favorite diva and me as we relive our weekends and make this Monday marvelous! The last few days have been totally JAM-PACKED for me so, instead of having a million-word post, let’s just skip the intro…
The weekend kicked off with a WILD birthday celebration!
My BABY sister turned TWENTY ONE!! 😯
As if the reunion last weekend didn’t make me feel old enough! Omg, just go ahead and break out the dentures and Depends! 😉
Mom, Tori, and I met up at O’Charley’s for lunch on Friday afternoon to celebrate the day my sister was allowed to drink (legally, that is…har har!)
We started out with bread, butter, and oBLIGatory BOOZE!
Mom and Tori ordered the white peach sangria while I went with the tangerine
And of course we had to pose with our drinks!
Then another to show our reaction to the size of our glasses…
Keep in mind we hadn’t even had our first sips at this point! 😉
…sorry, I couldn’t resist 😉
I ordered the grilled chicken sandwich with jalapeno mayo on ciabatta with a side of their new sweet potato fries…
Ok, I’m not usually big on chain restaurants, but I have to say, O’Charley’s has some sweet potato frying SKILLS…crispy on the outside, soft on the inside…and not a SPECK of cinnamon-sugar in sight! 🙂
Later that night, the man-friend and I met in Nashville for dinner…any guesses as to where we went and got totally CRAZY?!
Oh yeah, Koi sushi buffet…come to MAMA!!
I told you guys I was begging to go back! 😉
And this time, I got TWO plates!
But the CRAZY didn’t stop there…the next day (on a SATURDAY mind you), we went to COSTCO!! Yep, we’re not only crazy for sushi, but just crazy in general! It was much too busy for pictures (even though this was my FIRST time there), but I did manage to walk away with a nice little bounty (and a sample-satisfied tummy!)…
Peach mango orange preserves, stuffed grape leaves, Wild Planet Tuna, nitrate-free turkey meat, and the man-friend and I split a case each of organic tomato paste and sauce.
Afterwards, we headed back to his house to prep some MARVELOUS!
Marinated flank steak (brought by a friend), veggie skewers, PERFECT watermelon
wedgies wedges, and Blueberry Lavender Coleslaw!
For the record (and for all you #strangebutgood haters out there) the slaw was a total HIT…everyone was raving about it! Well, until we got to dessert…
Unfortunately, there was no cake for me (for some reason, even WITH my Lactaid, ice cream seems to be really bothering me lately…*sad face*), but from all the moans and groans going on around the table, I’d say it was a real winner!
What was the most MARVELOUS thing from your weekend?
