Happy Sunday! This weekend was packed, but fun. 

I had the day off and spent all morning doing laundry, cleaning the house and doing glamorous tasks like sanitizing my dishwasher and cleaning my coffee maker. Glam-o-rous I tell you. The weather was absolutely gorgeous so I ran some errands and enjoyed the beautiful weather outside. 

Brandon came home and we had a yummy dinner {if I do say so myself!} of salmon sandwiches, sweet potato fries, watermelon and pineapple. 

We watched a movie and got in bed like the old people we are. 

We slept in and went to Top Golf with my brother-in-law, Jeff; sister-in-law Becca; and Becca's brother Joey who is home on leave from the Air Force before he goes to South Korea {please pray for him!}. 

It was another gorgeous day, and I just enjoyed sitting in the sunshine with a Bloody Mary. Honestly the perfect afternoon. 

We ran to NorthPark afterward to do a little shopping, then had lunch at one of our favorite local Mexican restaurants, 7 Salsas

After that, we went over to our friends' Brandon and Kimmie's house to visit for a little bit. Kimmie's cousin was in from New Jersey and y'all...she had never heard of shrimp and grits. Or grits for that matter. Isn't that crazy!? I also mentioned that I had a Bloody Mary earlier in the day and a couple of the people there said, "Ew, I don't like Bloody Mary's!" WHAT?! I promise you that I am Southern through and through. If I knew I wouldn't gain any weight, I'd eat chicken fried steak, shrimp and grits, fried okra, cornbread and a Bloody Mary every day. That'd definitely be my last meal if I ever had to have the option of having one! Ha!

We joined our church today! It was so intimidating to be up in front of our entire congregation, but we did it! We are so happy and are so thankful for and blessed with a great church. 

After church, we went to Panera for lunch. My favorite new salad from there is their Power Chicken Hummus Bowl on their hidden menu. {Thanks for the tip about their hidden menu, Stephanie!} 

Then, I took my rear to the gym for the first time since Christmas {I know, I know!!!}. It was time, though. I can tell I've gained weight - especially in my face - and it was just time. We've been eating really healthy for a good while, but I needed those extra calories burned! So running and weight lifting it was. 

I'm also doing this water detox cleanse. Don't worry, I'm still eating food like normal! I just was on oral steroids for a really bad rash/hives I have had all over my stomach, chest and neck for the past four weeks {SO AWFUL AND EMBARRASSING!} and needed to get rid of the excess water weight they made me retain.  

I started today and let me tell you, I feel like a pregnant lady having to get up to go to the bathroom every 15-20 minutes. 

After the gym, I wandered to Target to get a new hairdryer, because mine bit the dust. I got this one, then came home and read my new Real Simple and it was written up in there! How about that?!

I also scored this cute top {in white} thanks to Nina's recommendation. It's precious! 

Hope y'all have a great week!
