Scandal, Stockyards, & Shenanigans

This post brought to you late because I was already up until midnight as it was yesterday & staying up later to type this up was not a priority.  I hope that y'all had a fabulous weekend & that you're having a great Monday!  Linking up with Biana!

Friday was rough.  I was tired.  My kids were extra on my nerves.  I just wanted to go home.  So, when one of my coworkers asked if I wanted to go out for lunch I abandoned the lunch I brought with me, & the fact that I'm on a spending freeze, and went to Taco Bell with a couple of my coworkers.  I had plans of going to senior night/the last softball game of the season for my softball girls from last year.  However around 5 I was notified that there was no longer going to be a JV game & the varsity game had been moved up to 5.  There was no way I was going to make it over there in time so sadly I missed it.  So instead, I went to the store, bought myself a bottle of wine, discounted Easter candy, & jalapeno poppers.  Supper of champions I tell ya!  So it was me, some junk food, wine, & Scandal for the rest of the night.  Side note:  While I was standing at the register the ONE Cadbury egg I had rolled off the box of poppers & under the register.  I stood there laughing to myself & thought maybe that was God's way of saying that I didn't need the egg... then I thought "nah!" & walked back to the Easter candy & grabbed TWO eggs!  BOOM!

In the morning I sat on my balcony to eat breakfast & enjoy my coffee.  I was going to sit out there & watch Scandal but for some reason it was about 30 degrees cooler than it had been the day before so instead I went back inside to watch Scandal after my breakfast.  I had an appointment to donate blood at 12:30 but it was so packed in there that It was probably 1 before I got to start the process.  Luckily I'm a pro & can fill a bag in about 5 min because I had plans to meet my friend Katherine at Babe's Chicken for lunch.  I had never been there & she was really craving it.  It was really good!  And because it's family style we had leftovers so I got to bring some chicken home.  When we left I was going to take a little nap & then watch more Scandal before meeting up again that night.  However, I basically just took a nap & then got ready.  We met up in the Stockyards & hung out there for the night.  While we were at the first bar we made some friends from Kansas & then hung out with them for the rest of the night.  Because I love food & obsessed with Ol' South Pancake House, I convinced everyone to go out for after bar breakfast so that I could get a skillet.

I was useless.  I was going to get so much done but I was so tired & hungover most of the day that I did nothing.  I napped a lot & watched even more Scandal.  Around 4:30 I asked my friend if he wanted to get food but he said he had plans.  Not even 30 minutes later he text me back & we then had plans.  We tried to go to the Fort Worth Arts Fesitval but it was the last day & almost over so most of the booths were packing up.  We hit up Chimera Brewing which neither of us had been to.  They had nothing my friend wanted so after my beer we headed to Hop Fusion.  It was a really cool place!  I really wanted crawfish because I hadn't gotten any while I was in Houston so we headed to Dallas so we could get some.  The shenanigans then continued to Steel City Pops & then the Crafty Irishman.  Around 11 we finally left because I had to be up at 5 this morning.  Around midnight I finally got home & immediately went to bed.


  1. I love Steel City Pops. I basically want them all the time! Haha. I'm glad you finally got your crawfish!

  2. Sounds like a weekend full of scandal watching :) xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. What a busy and great weekend. I love those weekends when you don't really have plans but then it turns out to be busy fun.
