A bunch of random...

This past weekend was probably the most eventful weekend I have had in a long time.

Why, you ask...

Well, for starters, it was the first weekend in LONG time that I had a taste of my friend, tequila.
The fiance and I went over to a friends house and there he was, begging me to come party.
So I said yes. DUH.


Thankfully, I had enough self-control to stop before it was too late-
and so avoided my other friend- the toilet.

My crazy party days are over,
but I will not deny that it is nice to get out of the house and have some fun with friends every once-in-a-while-
even tequila.

I ended the night with a ginormous burrito.
And I was reminded why I gained those freshman 15 (more like 30) back in college.

How did I eat and drink crap almost every night of the week?

I woke up the next morning feeling like death.
And have thus sworn off alcohol for the next two weeks.

(we'll see how long this really lasts)

The big news of the weekend?

I finally got a pair of these-
I did it!

Actually, I returned something I never wore and got these instead.
So, I don't feel that guilty.

But, finally, after over two years I got some decent rain boots.
Are they worth $125?
We'll see.

These babies better last me the rest of my life!

I was also considering buying a pair of TOMS.
Thankfully, the sales guy was honest enough to tell me they really are not made for lots of walking,
and that they fall apart pretty fast.

I know they're a charity shoe, 
but eff that!

I do not buy a product to have it fall apart.
So, no TOMS for me. 

I've also discovered a new obsession that I would like to share with you-
It's cauliflower.

No, not plain cauliflower.
Cauliflower topped with pasta sauce and some parm.

Umm, seriously, just make it and see for yourself.  I've had it twice in the past week.
Sooo much better than pasta.
And since i'm currently not training for any races, it's much healthier too.

So, my friends, this was my eventful weekend.
You can imagine how my not so eventful weekends usually go...

Pin It!

Sounds like a fun night! I have a love of tequila too :)
And I love those boots!!! Yay to those :)

love the booooots!! (:

What color of boots did you get? I love my Hunters!! I bought my first pair of TOMS this December (the herringbone pair, LOVE) and I really, really like them. They're super comfy. I've probably worn mine 20 times and they're still in good condition-- even in the snow! (which I've had to cut back on because I don't want them to deteriorate because of the snow and salt..) But you're right, they're more house shoes rather than WALKING shoes. Sounds like you had a great weekend!

I've been wanting red rain boots for so long! I can never find them and it doesn't rain that much in Alabama, so I guess it's just as well I can't find them.

I did not know that about TOMS! I was thinking of getting a pair, but I walk a lot and would hate to spend $50 on shoes for the first time ever, only to have them fall apart. So thanks for that!

I'm a cauliflower fan but I've never used it in place of pasta. I'm apparently having to go gluten-free, so maybe I'll give this a go!

I love my Hunter boots. They have lasted me four years and are going strong. Mine are dark grey. Do you roast the cauliflower first? I have been loving roasted cauliflower lately! And my TOMS did get a hole in them after 4-5 months of wear and tear.

Sandra said...

I'm surprised to hear that about Toms. I have a pair that has been through festivals, concerts, a cruise, everyday wear and they still are in good shape. I find them to be comfortable as well. So I'd say mine were worth the $50 spent a couple of years ago.
I love the boots! I want a pair one day!

Jenna said...

Ahhh glad you finally caved :) What color did you end up getting?

I was also a member of the freshman 30 club - and also guilty of eating and drinking my way through college - bleh, kind of glad I got it all out then! Still, sometimes it's fun to go a bit wild :)

And get TOMS. Yes, they fall apart but they're amazing if you're not walking miles a day (aka traveling). I'm on my 2nd pair of gold ones and about to get a 3rd and still think they're perfect.

What color Hunters did you get? I have the forest green ones and I wear them ALL the time... in fact I'm wearing them right now!

Congrats! They're the best purchase!

yep, TOMS fall apart SO easily. Ugh.

♥B said...

I love the rain boots! I've been wanting some forever but it hardly rains in southern california, I can't justify the purchase :/


Miranda said...

those boots are so cute! what color did you get? and that cauliflower sounds should tell me the recipe how to make it (i am very bad at cooking)...

Sunshine77 said...

I loved this post! I can so relate to the reunion with tequila, the break up with the toilet, and being choosy when it comes to $$ you spend. :) Thanks for a nice read. Happy Valentine's Day! :)

Jamie said...

Tell us how the Hunters go...I'm still contemplating a pair.

hello, Friday said...

I want hunters in all different colors. xoxo

Emily said...

Ooooo. Fun boots!

Rod and Alex - aka: "Rolex" said...

A night of tequila and burritos sounds wonderful! And I'm a big fan of cauliflower...I actually had some for a snack today. I like it with lemon. My husband thinks I'm crazy because of it! :)

Seeing friends, realizing it's not good to drink too much, making a good switch at the store and leaving shoes behind sounds productive to me.

cute cute cute cute cute cute blog!

Ameryn Marie said...

I sooo want some of those rain boots! What color did you get? I think I want red! =)
P.S. loving your blog.

LOL me & tequila also have a love/hate relationship. And ALSO, Hunters ARE worth $125. They'll last you forever, you just have to polish em up once in awhile. And my boyfriend and I each walked 140+ blocks in our TOMS in NYC. My feet killed but the shoes were fine, though I can see them falling apart if you did that often. I know people who wear theirs everyday in the summer and they last the entire summer+, for sure. Id get a pair, they're cute & for a good cause :)
