Weekend Report



Happy Monday Y'all! 

I have quite the update after the amazing weekend I had.. lets get to it!

Friday, I left work at 12 and headed to Baltimore to throw my best friend a surprise birthday party! I hit some major traffic on my way and got there a little later than I wanted but got right to work when I arrived. I had loads of decorations and brought a ton of yummy food to make and some easier things to throw together like cheese and crackers. Everyone arrived around 7:15 and Alison arrived around 8:30. She had absolutely no idea and was so surprised, here's a few shots from the party...

Just as she was coming in the door

So great to catch up with old friends!

Aaron (Alison's boyfriend), The birthday girl, and me!

The rest of the night was spent taking too many shots and heading out to the bars in Federal Hill. 

Saturday morning I woke up feeling slightly under the weather and thought about hanging around Baltimore for the weekend but decided to rally and head back to Richmond. Being that I've been away every weekend for the past month... I was itching to get back to my apartment to have a quite Saturday night in. 

On my way back to Richmond, I couldn't help but stop at Potomac Mills to do a bit of shopping. I planned to also hit up Ikea while I was there but did a bit too much damage at the mall and decided I better head home. In my shopping spree I picked up these goodies...

How adorable is this dress I scooped up from Marshalls?! Gotta love a good Marshalls/TJ Maxx find and a steal at only $34!


I also picked up this gauzy summer top from Forever. While I know summer is ending, I have one more trip to the beach and though it would be perfect with some shorts and wedges. 


If you saw my post last week about Fall favorites, you might remember that I have seriously been eyeing up some utility jackets. I found this great one at a boutique for a great deal. I can't wait to wear it come fall with some skinnies and booties!

Saturday night was spent in at my friend Lauren's eating pizza and watching Playing For Keeps. Not an eventful night but it was exactly what I wanted post Friday shenanigans. 

Saturday morning I was up early to enjoy a little "Emily" time...

Coffee and mags in bed... perfect Sunday morning in my book. 

I didn't let myself lay around too long and actually managed to catch a barre class! I haven't been in weeks but it felt so good to be back and definitely left me a little sore today. The rest of my lovely Sunday went a little bit like this...

Catching up on DVR of Devious Maids, pinterest, and a good 'ol Coke


Being that I had so much time on my hands yesterday, I decided to get a little creative with my meal planning and made egg, spinach, and feta cups alongside with banana oatmeal muffins (recipe to come!) I had enough goodies to have one egg cup and one muffin every morning this week, and also enough to freeze for later! 

The rest of Sunday evening was spent making my homemade veggie enchiladas and watching Summer Catch... a pretty good Sunday I would say!


How did you spend your weekend?

Yours truly, 
Emily
