Weekending | Last Days of Summer

Happy Monday lovelies!! You know when you have a weekend that's pretty fantastic, but you can't quite pinpoint what made it so amazing?! A weekend where you get all your to-do's done, manage to make it to a gym class & try out new recipes is a win in my book! It's just the little moments that make it memorable!! 
Weekending
If you notice the picture clarity is a bit better around these parts that's because I'm finally out of the stone age and have upgraded from the 4s to the iPhone 6!!
She's gold and I'm obsessed! 

{Watched}

I'm not an avid documentary watcher, but every once in a while I'll see a title that piques my interest. Friday night we watched Fed Up - a film that sheds light on the food industry and just how intertwined with the government it really is. While I'm always conscious of what I eat, now thanks to this movie - I'll be reading the labels a little more closely! 

So I might be a little late to the party on this one, but in my defense a few months back we tried to get into the show and the first two episodes were so brutal, literally! This weekend we decided to give it another chance and are officially hooked on Breaking Bad!! I see a lot of binge watching sessions in our future!! 

{Cheered}

Saturday, Gary and I went to The Vault which is home to the New England Gator Club! Even though the Gators lost, it wasn't necessarily a blow-out like everyone thought it would be. It was a really fun time and always great to meet some fellow gators! 

{Munched}

I have been craving chicken salad for the longest time and Sunday found this recipe using greek yogurt, avocado & onions! Stuffed in a little pita and it made for the perfect lunch!
I'll be sharing the Shrimp Saganaki recipe from the Newlywed Cookbook this week and let's just say Gary and I both agreed that we hadn't had anything that good in a long time!!  

{Created}

Our little bar cart area is coming together little by little. I finally purchased the frames to showcase the prints from my friend Marissa's Etsy shop Go Chic Yourself. We also bought a few bar cart glasses from West Elm.
Stemless Champagne Glasses//Bier Glasses in store only & on sale
Sunday night I finally got started on our honeymoon album and putting all the prints in order. You'll remember it's one of my goals for September and it's well on it's way to being done!

And now here we are again with Monday and even though we look at Monday's like this...
I say we...



How was your weekend? Hope you'll share in the link-up!

  1. Ohhh jealous of your new phone! I can't decide whether I want to upgrade mine or not... I feel like the 6 is a little bigger than I want! I got the 5 when I did because all the other phones were too big LOL! The Gator bar sounds like a fun time despite the fact they lost. And your bar cart is looking amazing! LOVE it!

  5. it's so hard to eat healthy/clean with the government's grubby hands all up in the farming industry etc. i don't eat anything that comes out of a box, bag or can but damn, even when you try to eat fresh produce, you never know if it's been modified or whatnot. it's why my only option - even though i HATE the price - is organic or grow my own shizz. i wish i could grow my own livestock too!

  8. What a fun weekend! That chicken salad recipe sounds great, and I bet your honeymoon album will turn out so cute. Happy Monday, girl!

  9. You look absolutely gorgeous in that pic of you and Gary! Loving the bar cart! That chicken salad sounds really good. You cannot go wrong with avocado. I might make some this week. Have the best week! XO

  10. Love the gold one too!! Glad you're watching BB. Soo good! Love the bar cart area. Great job!

  11. I have yet to watch Breaking Bad yet, I need to jump on that bandwagon for sure. You'll love that chicken salad, I make it like that almost every week for lunch and bring guacamole with me to work to spread on the wrap since avacado goes bad so fast. Hope you have a great week!

  12. We watched a few episodes of breaking bad and quit and I dont know why, we have been meaning to binge it since but haven't gotten around to it. I am with you, I dont watch a ton of those documentaries but it is really for fear that I might starve to death because in the back of my mind I know the whole system is corrupt and I guess I try to forget about it. Haha!

    I love your bar cart! And I am so jelly of your iPhone 6! I want it SOOOOOO bad! I was going to go see if our store had any this weekend but didn't get around to it. My upgrade is up in December and I dont know if I can wait that long. Have you had any issues with it? I know sometimes when the new phones come out there are some bugs that need to be worked out.

    I cant tell you that I am sorry for your loss this weekend, because your loss was my win! ;) But I am glad you were able to find a Gator bar to hang among your peeps!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I always tell everyone to stick through the first 5 episodes of Breaking Bad & then you'll be hooked... but yes, those first few... that bath tub... OH mercy.. that was rough.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Found you through Amanda @ Meet @ the barre!

    We're watching The Wire right now and it took me 2-3 episodes to gel with it. We haven't done Breaking Bad yet but I'm sure it'll be the same!

    I heard the 6's night photos are much better - true?

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'm glad that you guys had a nice weekend! The bar cart is so cute and nice work on your honeymoon album!! I'm looking forward to hearing more about your Newlywed cookbook recipes, and don't worry we haven't watched Breaking Bad either. :-) Congrats on the new iPhone too!! At some point I'm going to have to upgrade, but I'm going to wait until Chris does haha. I hope that you are having a great day so far too lady!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I think I might be getting the 6 too! Do you love it?! My husband wants the plus but it's ginormous haha! How cool there's a gators club so fun! Omg that shrimp looks awesome can't wait for the recipe!

  17. I'm so jealous of your iPhone 6! I just upgraded to the 5... grrr!! And so glad you are getting into Breaking Bad! It was a little dark in the beginning and I remember after the first few episodes feeling not so into it, then it gets really good! You will not want to stop watching it! You get so involved in the characters' lives! That show got us through last winter lol!

    ReplyDelete
  18. You had such a productive weekend!! That chicken salad sounds delicious and the bar cart area is looking so great!! Hope you have a great week girl! xo

  19. We haven't been able to make it past the first 2 episodes of BB! Sounds like we need to try again... I seriously don't know if we can bring ourselves to try though, ha ha!
    Yay for your new pretty phone! I have the 5 and love it, but I'm dying to get this one for the camera! I have a "big girl" camera but barely pull it out... all of my photos of Mia are on the phone!
    Pinning that chicken salad recipe now! Sounds delish!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Ohh. Love that shiny gold iPhone! I'm still stuck in the stone ages as well and pondering the upgrade. Sounds like a fun weekend. I've seen those chicken salad recipes with greek yogurt and wondered if they were good. I'm going to have to try it! Have a good Monday :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh i love all the gold phones popping up everywhere. I have not watched Breaking Bad either. The first episode I tried to watch was some guy getting brutally murdered and I just couldn't. I would like to see it from the beginning though! Looks like a fun weekend and boo Bama... yuck.

    ReplyDelete
  22. You're not the only one that hasn't jumped on the Breaking Bad train. I want to watch it, but I just haven't found the time to start a new series. Hopefully Netflix doesn't have any plans to remove it soon! Looks like you had a great weekend {minus your team losing.. that sucks, but Go Noles! ;) } And I agree, let's make Monday amazing! So, hope you have a wonderful and amazing day!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love that there's a place all the way up there where you can meet other Gator fans! How fun! Pinning that chicken salad recipe now! Happy Monday cupcake!

  24. Your new phone is so pretty! I'm going to have to wait for the 6s since I just upgraded last year, and have another year before I can upgrade womp womp...

    Loving your bar cart area, especially the artwork above it! :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. mmmm those pitas look SO good!! im glad you're finally watching breaking bad! isnt it SO good! and congrats on the iphone upgrade... i still have a 4! i need to get a new one soon (mine doesnt even lock anymore!) xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  26. I had zero desire to watch Breaking Bad, but my husband was re-watching it, and I was hoooooked! We're now on the last season. It's so good. I have been wanting to watch Fed Up, but haven't yet.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Fed Up sounds really interesting! Adding that to my Netflix que. Your new iphone is so pretty!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Sounds like it was a great weekend. So jealous that your phone arrived. I pre-ordered the same day and it says it won't be here until October. I cannot wait to get a new phone. I feel like I'm in the dark ages with my 4S. haha. Happy Monday!! Hope its a great day!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Love the bar cart area!! Those prints are too cute :) I still have an iphone 4s and I'm about ready to throw it out into traffic, it's running so slow --- an iphone 6 upgrade might be in my near future too! xx

    ReplyDelete
  30. I just watched Fed Up last week! Pretty eye opening right? And I can't wait to get the new Iphone too! Have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I still on the 4s boat and I really want to get the iPhone 6. I'm thinking about making it a christmas present to myself but we'll see if I feel like splurging. The Gators gave them a run for their money, I think for at least the first half the Bama fans were a little nervous. Happy Monday!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Your new phone is beautiful! :) I love your bar cart area and love that you put a photo on it. What a fun personal touch.

    ReplyDelete
  33. yay to the phone upgrade and double yay to using the newlywed cookbook! Glad you guys had a fabulous weekend! xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm definitely going to be trying these yummy recipes! We have a newlywed cookbook back from when we got married. I don't think it's been opened once. Going to have to fix that! Glad you had a great weekend!!!

  36. lol I guess I am still in the stoneage, as I only have a 4 not even a 4s! but yay for new phone :) i am not big on documentaries either but i do enjoy watching ones about the food industry and the like (have you seen forks over knives? there is another one... fat, sick & nearly dead that we enjoyed). the chicken salad + the shrimp - both look amazing! yum.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Damn it I want that phone! I have the 5s in gold, but now I'm having jealousy issues hah. Love the SJP pic and I'm definitely looking forward to your shrimp recipe! Happy Monday (and would totally meet you at your bar cart if I was closer!).

  39. Love the new bar cart! Looks like a great weekend to me! I've never heard of Shrimp Sagnaki but it looks really good and i have some shrimp at home that needs to be used.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Ah breaking bad really sucks you in, it was so good though. I need to go back and watch the first couple of seasons.

  41. I love that picture of you and Gary at The Vault, such a great pic! Last weekend I mixed up a chicken salad, greek yogurt and avocado mix and I loved it too. I definitely like the taste of the greek yogurt over mayo for sure. Glad you had a perfect weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  44. i'm really curious to see the iphone 6 in person.. i'm worried it will be too big for me! :(

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm so jealous of you for two reasons - 1. gold iPhone!!!!! 2. I wish I could reverse time and start watching Breaking Bad all over again. I hate that it is over.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Looks like a great weekend! Love the new iphone and the gold! That shrimp sagnaki looks delicious.

  47. The bar cart is coming together so well! Love when you just feel so accomplished after the weekend! The chicken salad sounds really yummy.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Looks like you had an awesome weekend!! Love how the bar cart is coming together for you!! A bar cart is one of my dreams for when we have a house and have the space to put one... we ended up with a keg-o-rater in the spot where I had thought a bar cart would look fabulous... oh well... it happens I guess!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Ooo, pretty gold phone! Mine is boring, it's an LG something I don't even know, but it gets the job done I guess. ;)

    I too am just glad we did not have a blow out game! I don't know that we could have said the same if we had played Bama last year! Yay for improvement over last year's season, right?? So cool that you have a Gator club up there! Gator Nation! :)

    I love chicken salad, that looks so good!

  51. I cheered so hard for your team this weekend! They did make it a good game though & it definitely was not a blow out. Can't wait to see how the rest of your bar cart turns out!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Hope you love your super fancy new iPhone!! That photo of you & Gary in your Gator gear is so cute… and love the progress on the bar cart! xoxo

  53. So glad you gave Breaking Bad another chance!! It's been my favorite show ever! Can't wait for this shrimp recipe.. it sounds delicious and YAY for a new iPhone! Happy Monday!

  54. I was in Tuscaloosa for the Alabama/Florida game and I must say they did put up a good fight! I was expecting a good game based on how Florida played against Kentucky the weekend before and they did not disappoint!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Congrats on the 6!!! Love the bar cart teaser, it's looking really pretty! I've been meaning to watch Fed Up - I need to get on that!! Happy Monday!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love the bar cart! I am going to have to see Fed Up. I have learned quite a few things that are still on the shelves due to politics and corrupt crap so I am extremely glad to hear about this movie.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I had such a love/hate relationship with breaking bad- it was so well done and the acting is so good, but it was so depressing I could only handle like one episode at a time and my husband would binge watch like 5 a night! haha. I love the prints above your bar cart-- everything looks so cute so far! And that's such a great picture of you & Gary at the bar! I'm so behind on like 4 photobooks and I was just wondering why I don't print pictures and just put them in an album! I love making photobooks online but they take SO long; hence why I haven't finished any of them! haha

  58. wahoo! congrats on the new phone! so exciting!

  60. Bar cart is looking cute! And I know what you mean about those weekends that are kind of run-of-the-mill, nothing really exceptional or spectacular, but they just leave you feeling *good.* So glad you got to enjoy one this weekend! xo

    ReplyDelete
  61. I need to watch Fed Up! (or do i?? ha ha!) That chicken salad looks delish! I love the addition of avocados! And your bar cart is such a chic idea! If I didn't have four kids, I would totally have a bar cart front and center! Happy Monday :)

  62. We've gone to the Gator game viewings now and again but when we went to The Vault last year I was surprised by how few TVs/seats there were compared to when it was at Stadium. Will have to give it another shot.

  63. I definitely want to see Fed Up....I've heard it's a must-see!
