A Southern Twenty-Five on Friday!

Hey! It's FRIDAY! It's also the last "calm" weekend that I have in store for the next couple of months. I have a feeling that with the way the weather is shaping up for Sunday that I'll be spending the day inside the apartment doing a little spring cleaning/purging. Motivation? The more crap I don't need that I get rid of now... the less I'll be moving at the end of May.

As always, linking up with the Five on Friday hostesses April, Darci, Natashaand Christina!


It's Friday and the weather is going to be nice tonight... sounds like a perfect night to hit up Food Truck Friday. I'm can already taste the Big Cheesy from Papi Queso. Mmm... delicious.

I've recently stumbled across Taylor at The Daily Tay and her blog posts are pretty much the highlight of my day. She posted this on her blog yesterday & I love every single thing about it:

It's officially spring and the weather is outstanding and Riverbanks Zoo is calling my name. But when to visit? Hopefully soon!

P.S. - who wants to go with me? Cause I doubt I'm going to talk Patrick into going back for a fourth time {because the zoo is only fun with alcohol and food} in less than a year...

Papa freakin' Pope. He's quickly becoming my hands down favorite character on Scandal, especially when he goes off on a rant. He steals the scene every single time. & last night's episode? Yup. He did it again. As did Shonda Rimes because seriously, who comes up with these story lines!?

So... are you a No Reply Blogger? Chances are that if you are a NRB then you probably have no clue that you are {I sure didn't when I was!} There's quite of a few of y'all that leave sweet comments to blog posts & when I go to reply to you, I find out that you're a NRB.

Don't worry though! Easy enough problem to fix if you follow these instructions. Check it out! Get out of the dreaded No Reply Blogger land :)

Have a great weekend!

  5. I agree the zoo is always better with drinks! Although, now that I have a little one, I go stone cold sober once a week!

  6. I've been trying to hard to get into Scandal but haven't had the time to sit and watch past episodes like I want. I feel like I'm missing out! Have a great weekend!!
