After we got settled in on Friday

 we all got dressed and opened a bottle of champagne to kick off the celebration

of girls weekend!

I brought my selfie stick and I think it’s safe to say that Claire was THRILLED about it.

hahaha this may be my favorite picture of the entire weekend.

Our first stop was Boerne Wine Co.

We all did a little wine tasting and ate WAY too many of their “pallet cleansing” nuts…

Which were ridiculously delicious by the way. I totally wanted to throw a handful in my purse,

you know like “that one” grandma you have always does. 

But I refrained.

Our next stop was The Dodging Duck…and boy oh boy did they have some good food.

I opted for one of their lighter options on the menu.

HA! Definitely wasn’t mad about this tower of nachos in front of me.
They were SO good.

It was definitely a fun night.
After eating we headed back to the house for some more girl time and a little swimming.

Make sure you come back tomorrow because I’m sharing my FAVORITE outfit!!
Seriously love love love it!

Happy Thursday Y’all!
Xoxo, Monica

Stomach Bugs and Slumber Parties

I woke up Saturday in the WORST pain ever.

Kyle was out of town and I had no clue what was going on with my body.

Well apparently, I has a stomach bug, and this was my first one EVER!

Needless to say I felt like I was dying and was extremely dramatic,

and had no one to comfort me but charley.

Here she is checking to see if I have a fever…

I felt SO bad because my girlfriend Skye and I had been planning a girls night.

Thank God I started feeling better later in the afternoon and the 

slumber party was still a GO!

Skye had to work a wedding that evening so she dropped her pup, Grayson,

 off so her and Charley could get all their hyperness out.

(just kidding their energy is endless)

Once the wedding was over she came back to pick me up so we could go grab some junk food!

I mean, what’s a slumber party without junk food and wine?!

(wine was already fully stocked at the house)

Skye had this genius idea of bringing some arts and crafts, 

I seriously felt like I was in junior high all over again and loved every minute of it.

She saw this adorable art inspiration on pinterest and of course ours was a fail…

ONLY because we had the wrong glue though!

I’m planning on finishing mine this weekend and can’t wait to show y’all the final result!

Arts & Crafts were accompanied by a ridiculous amount of girl talk and junk food.

And the night just kept getting more interesting…

Our plan was to watch a chick flick, but that didn’t exactly happen.

Kyle and I use someone else’s netflix account.

In college this guy gave us his info so we could use it, 

and well we’ve just been taking advantage of it ever since! 

Skye and I get on and start searching for a chick flick but ALL we can find

are these weird, sexual, crazy movies and TV shows…

Therefore this kid we used to know must have had some kind of weird netflix binger.

We literally scrolled through row after row and couldn’t find anything normal,

so we settled and decided to watch one of these weird shows..

hahaha oh goodness talk about WEIRDEST movie ever.

It was called Wetlands, and I definitely DO NOT recommend it.

We couldn’t help but laugh the entire time because it was so bizarre and uncomfortable.

We definitely ended up falling asleep and not finishing it.

(not mad about that)

All 4 of us hopped into bed but the pups decided they weren’t ready yet.

Which resulted in us in separate rooms. 

I’d say girls night was definitely interesting and definitely a success.

Happy Tuesday!

This past Friday one of my girlfriends from college came to town!

She had a sweet baby girl about 9 months ago, and she lives about 4 hours away.

Therefore we haven’t gotten to see each other much, and she was in major need

of a little getaway!

Me, Tiffany, & Liz

How AMAZING does tiff look after having a baby?? Like her body couldn’t be more on point.

We had wayyyy too much fun.
The evening started out at Cedar Creek, a little outdoor restaurant & bar,
and then we headed downtown to begin the girls night festivities of drinking and dancing.

If you follow me on snapchat (MonicaLeeee) I’m sure you got to see a little of the action.
During the evening we all agreed to do some kind of girls weekend/getaway every year together.

It’s SO important to plan things like this when you get older and start having husbands and babies.
You still gotta make time for yourself and your girlfriends!
Can’t wait for our next weekend (or maybe even vacation) together!!

Happy Tuesday Y’all!

xoxo, Monica

Friends and Piano Bars.

This weekend was SO much fun!
Friday was one of my best friends (Jenn) birthdays,
we’ve been friends since 1st grade and I just love her to death.

A bunch of us all went out to dinner then walked over to Pete’s Piano Bar downtown.

Piano bars are my FAVORITE. Seriously, I could go every weekend.
We had so so so much fun, and stayed out wayyyy too late.
Kyle and I are old souls and used to going to bed before 10 every night.
[I know, I know, embarrassing] It was too fun to leave though!

If you follow me on snapchat I’m sure you saw a few embarrassing videos
of me and my girlfriends singing our hearts out.
[snapchat: monicaleeee]

But anyways, Saturday was another one of my best friends birthdays!
So we had one BUSY and FUN weekend!
I’ll share Saturdays events with y’all tomorrow ;]

Kyle and I MAY be moving out of our home in the next couple of weeks
so please keep us in your prayers!
Moving is always stressful, and as much as I’m ready to get out of this house
it’s also bittersweet because it was our first home together.

I will definitely keep y’all updated.
Happy Monday!

Sunday Fundayyyy.

Tank: H&M [old]




Sundays are for brunches with my 2 favorite girlfriends.

It started out with just us 3, and then turned into a group of 6.

Liz invited one of her friends to join, and Jenn’s old roommate happened

to be walking around downtown with her mom so they hopped over to say hi

and hang out as well!

obviously we had to snap a mirror pic before. 

We had wayyyy too much fun…

and by “wayyyy” I mean we got there at noon and didn’t leave till 6:00….

We took about 800 pictures and these were the 2 that turned out decent…

Why does that always seem to happen?!

Well, it’s officially Monday and time to get back to work!

Hope you all have a wonderful week!!

Don’t forget about the giveaway going on over at Shannons blog
