Walks, Guac & Beauty & the Beast – Weekend Photo Dump


How was your weekend?  Mine went by way too fast.  Let’s go back and do it again?

Friday night started off with dinner at Char Bar with the Hubs.  We wanted something low key, and it was perfect.  I’m a sucker for their dip spread because you can choose three… and we never miss the guac.  Not pictured is pimento cheese to the right.


I also got the shrimp tacos and they didn’t disappoint!  Extra limes for the win.

After dinner we picked up a few ice cream sandwiches at Whits Frozen Custard.  We were too full to eat them though, but don’t worry it will happen.

This sign is how I want to live my life! lol!

Saturday morning started off slow again.  With the Hubs working on the weekends because of tax season, I have to admit my motivation has been lacking.  I’ve been lingering over my tea a little too long.

I normally do my hard workouts including my three running days during the week, to keep open our weekend time together.  We do so much traveling on weekends, that this works for me.

Since it’s just me until the end of tax season though I’m thinking about shaking it up and moving a run back to the weekend for the next few weeks just so I’ll have a good reason to get moving Saturday.  I’m also tossing around the idea of finding a fitness class Saturday morning.  Or maybe I should just honor these days of rest with all the busy times ahead this summer.  We’ll see!

The Hubs took Makena to work with him, so the Rhett-ster had the house and his Mom to himself.  I honestly think he had the best day ever.

Poor guy!

By lunchtime I had to get out, so I picked up lunch at Panera.  I love their new beet salad.

After lunch I stopped by DSW (I had a couponnnn) and picked up a new pair of summer sandals.  When I got home I started decorating for Easter!

My amazing Mother-in-law has given me nearly all this stuff over the years…

These guys are my fav.

Salt and Pepper shakers…

By the evening the Hubs came home from work and surprised me that he got enough work done to go to Beauty and the Beast!  I was literally jumping up and down with joy.  I had gotten a maybe earlier in the day.

We didn’t have much time to get to the theater, so we picked up a quick Which Which.  This is their new Superfood Wrap.  It’s pretty tasty… although next time I’d add a ton more veggies to it… I was in  hurry and didn’t think my order through completely.

So… I loved every minute of Beauty and the Beast.  I had really high expectations, and Disney met them!  At the end I just wanted to stay for the next show and watch it again.

My only small complaint was I wish they had chosen someone with a really knock out voice to play Belle.  Emma Watson acted the role beautifully, but I just wanted Belle to be able to belt.  But even with that small issue of mine, I still thought it was incredible. We only see one or two movies a year in the theater, so this was such a treat.

Sunday the hubs made Strawberry pancakes… which are always my favorite.

Ladies… if you aren’t married yet, let me give you  a little advice… Marry the man who makes you strawberry pancakes.  šŸ™‚

Sunday was another slow, rainy day.  I did some yoga at home and then I had some adulting paperwork to do, which sucked the life out of me.  I also did some research for Switzerland, which totally energized me.  Luckily I had the two to balance me out.

The skies cleared in the afternoon and the Hubs and I took Makena for a walk.  She’s so big!  I don’t think we’ll be able to hold her much longer.

It seems like just yesterday she was like this!

What a nice weekend!  Can’t wait for tax season to be over though!  I hope your was just as nice.

I’m linking up with Marvelous Monday.

Thanks for making Running in a Skirt a small part of your day!  Come back tomorrow for a Unicorn Smooooootttthiiiieee! YAAAssss!

Your turn!

How was your weekend?

What was the highlight?

    What a fun weekend!!! I love those appetizers you got with the guac and tomato salsa and chips. Yum!
    ” Iā€™m also tossing around the idea of finding a fitness class Saturday morning.” That’s totally how I keep myself motivated. I have to go to a fitness class at least twice a week – it just helps energize me more and motivates me to work harder. BUT honouring downtime is also very important, it’s good to listen to your body =)
    Your pups are just so gosh darned cute! It’s nice that Rhett got a day with you, must be a nice break from the puppy haha šŸ˜‰
    And yay for Beauty and the Beast!! I had very low expectations as I was scared they would ruin it, so I was beyond impressed with it. I hope they do more Disney live action movies. Come on Little Mermaid!
    Love the Easter decorations – especially the salt & pepper shakers. Adorbs.

      Thanks Kimmy! I have a hard time resting at home and not trying to do all the things!

    Your puppies are so cute. I’m happy that you enjoyed Beauty and The Beast. I really like it and it reminds me of my childhood a lot. I like all of your pictures.

    That salad looked amazing. Beets! šŸ˜‰ I’ve never actually been to Panera.

    I loved Beauty and the Beast- my daughter and I saw it last week! The hubby took a pass on that one šŸ™ I think that new beet salad at Panera is yummy too- they always come up with some good ones! Looks like you had a nice weekend! I am happy to be home šŸ™‚

    I loved Beauty and the Beast as well! Be Our Guest made me almost start clapping in the theatre (nerd!). We are going to see Power Rangers tonight. My young self is so happy with movies right now.

    Glad your weekend went well.
    Easter will be here soon ( smile ).
    I really enjoyed seeing Beauty and The Beast with
    my daughters. They were over the moon excited to see it.
    We all had huge expectations and we were all happy with it.
    We did each have a few nit picky criticisms but the overall
    take-away was that it was AWESOME !.

      I thought the same thing… a few things I didn’t like but overall they did a good job and my expectations were through the roof!

  8. Did you say beet salad? Now I know what I”m going to get when Marcia and I meet for lunch next week!

    Looking forward to that unicorn smoothie. My son is going to love it!

    • JulieWunder April 9, 2017 at 4:00 pm - Reply

      Yes! It was really good! Hope you liked the unicorn smoothie!

    Wow Beauty and the Beast must have been a really special date, since you only go once or twice a year. <3 I'm excited about them potentially making more re-makes of old Disney Princess classics; I just hope they do them right? I know making movies is tough, so I guess I shouldn't be overly critical.

    And Rhett is just so cute; I love your dogs. I have this big soft spot for any dog.

    Your salt and pepper shakers are ADORABLE. <3

    Love your Easter decorations–I have to confess that I am a little lacking in the Easter decor department…I also enjoyed Beauty and the Beast! I thought Disney did a fantastic job on the remake. I found myself smiling throughout the movie šŸ™‚ And BTW–there’s nothing wrong with lingering over tea, enjoying the silence of the morning. Just sayin!

    • JulieWunder April 9, 2017 at 3:56 pm - Reply

      YES!!! Me too! I was like a big kid watching the movie. Hope you are having a good weekend.

    I’m so glad you enjoyed Beauty and the Beast, I was disappointed when I heard the critics reviews were so so. Now I really want to go see it.

      I really loved it and my expectations were high! Like I mentioned I wish she had a better singing voice, but other than that, it was great.

  12. We really do not have a great Frozen Custard option around here!

    again this weekend we were still dealing with sickness…Sherry was still down, she went to work Saturday morning and was down the rest of the weekend…highlight(s) of the weekend was playing wiffle ball with the littles and hearing Pastor DJs sermon from Daniel 9….great word we needed to hear…

      Oh no! Hope you guys are finally all on the mends.

    Cutest pup, she is getting so big. Loved the earlier picture to compare to. She is just cute as can be. Sweet Rhett, nice he got one one on one tme with you. Your Easter things are cute and fun, enjoyed all your pictures.

    Love the Easter decor. I can’t believe it is right around the corner. This year is just flying by. I want to see Beauty and the Beast, but no one I know wants to see. Maybe I will just have to go by myself.

    • JulieWunder April 9, 2017 at 3:47 pm - Reply

      Aw bummer! I’d totally go again with you! šŸ™‚

    Tax season will be over soon enough! I think all of your ideas for Saturday mornings sound great. I do love starting my weekend with a run but I didn’t workout this weekend and it was nice to have those days off. Glad you liked Beauty and the bEast. I haven’t seen it and probably won’t until it comes out, haha.

    • JulieWunder April 9, 2017 at 3:47 pm - Reply

      Yes! A little more than a week now. Hope you are having a good weekend now too.

    I want your Mexican fiesta, and I am so sad that there isn’t a Panera near me anymore. YOU KNOW MY FEELS ABOUT BEETS. We were going to go see Beauty and the Beast this weekend, but instead we binged on Game of Thrones. It was worth it!

    • JulieWunder April 9, 2017 at 3:45 pm - Reply

      That sounds like fun too! I’ve never seen that show. Hope your weekend is going well.
