Weekend Recap + Life Lately

Since I didn't get my 5 on Friday post up in time, today's recap will catch you up on what we did this weekend as well as what we've been up to this last week.

Tuesday night J and I snuck away for a night out of town to see Hozier.  The concert was at The Pageant in downtown St. Louis and we booked a room at the Moonrise hotel right next door so it was a quick 30 second walk.

Even though we were gone for less than 24 hours it was exactly what we needed. We ate dinner at a restaurant without rushing or taking kids to the bathroom. It honestly felt like we were dating again. At the hotel, we lounged around in bed, ordered room service, and slept in before checking out and hitting up a few stores on our way out of town. Hozier was AMAZING, and just as talented in person as he is on his record.

Hozier is most known for his song Take Me to Church

But my personal favorite is Work Song.

I mentioned we did some shopping before we left town and I found 2 hellava steals at Nordstorm Rack (one off Brentwood if you're in the area and want to snag your own). I bought my very first pair of Kate Spade earrings. You can't really tell in this photo, but they're a gorgeous maroon color. Ready for the price? $10.99!!! You can't buy earrings at Target for that cheap.

I was also in desperate need of some new black boots, but didn't want to spend a ton since Winter is winding down, or supposed to be. I snagged these leather boots for...$39.99 I couldn't even believe it. They were originally well over $100 and I love the look and feel on.

The rest of the week was spent catching up on work, attending meetings, and getting hooked on The Blacklist. Have you all watched this and am I just late to the party? If you like Scandal, Homeland, or just a good suspense this show's for you.

Saturday afternoon/night we got our 2nd big snowfall of the year. And when I say "big" I mean big as in this year not big as in the years past when we've had 18+ inches or compared to the northeast whose had record snowfalls. We had tickets to see Disney's Frozen on Ice and waffled back and forth about going due to the weather. Early Sunday morning I decided to brave the roads and head to St. Louis once again and although it took almost double the time to get there we finally made it.

One last dad was admitted to the hospital late Friday night. He may need surgery in the next upcoming days and will be in the hospital until later this week. If you could say a prayer or send good thoughts his way it'd be greatly appreciated.

Linking up with Biana for Weekending.
