Fall, Fireball, and Gidget the Cougar Pumpkin!

October 13, 2013

How was everyone's weekend? Mine has pretty fun! Friday I worked then hit the gym for cardio. Afterwards, it was time to get ready. One of my friends Jeana, her husband TJ, and I went to Comedy Zone. I LOVE live raunchy comedy, and the show did not disappoint. The opening man reminded me of Kevin Hart. He was too freaking funny. I sipped on my go-to drink for comedy show's; "Blue Motorcycle".

Blue Motorycle is a STRONG drink:
1 1/2 oz tequila
fill with sweet and sour mix
1 1/2 oz rum
1 splash 7-Up® soda
1 1/2 oz vodka
1 1/2 oz gin
1 1/2 oz Blue Curacao liqueur

Saturday I slept in and it was glorious. I have not been drinking much lately so after my two Blue Motorcycles I was feeling good. Sleeping in was essential. I woke up around 10, did my Saturday morning routine of getting meals planned for the week, then Marquis and I went to the dog park, a pumpkin patch, and ran a lot of errands. It was a busy, busy afternoon.

Marquis went to the gym around 4 but I stayed home I was exhausted. I thought Marquis would be to when he got home from the gym, after over 3 hours of training, but I was wrong. He brought me a "Sex On The Beach" and told me to get ready and that we were going out. You don't have to tell me twice!

I got ready in record time: shower, hair, and makeup - 20 minutes!

We went downtown Waxhaw to our favorite bar/public house; "Southsiders". There is a train track that goes through downtown and the town built a bridge over it. It's so beautiful, especially at night. 

We were so close to the train!

We had a blast listening to the band "Lipstick On A Pig" and drinking the official drink of fall: Fireball whiskey and apple ale. It was delicious! When you go your local bar tell them they must make it for you!

Today has been wonderful, fun, and relaxing. We slept in, made breakfast, laid around, and watched "After Earth". It was surprisingly a really good movie. I loved it - great story, acting, and action. The critics were way too hard on this movie!
After the movie, we watched my favorite show "Undercover Boss". It was the "Moe's Southwest Grill" episode and I could not get over how delicious the food looked. There is also one literally a mile from our house. So after the episode Marquis took me there for a late lunch. It was my first time eating there and it did not disappoint! Fast, friendly, and delicious. You can't beat that!

After a yummy lunch we finally had some energy and decided to run errands. Once we finished, we came back to the house for some fall fun! I painted and carved a pumpkin and Marquis carved one. 

Meet "Gidget the Cougar". She is my pumpkin creation. She enjoys copious amounts of wine, anything with glitter, and men in their early 20's.

Here are Gidget's lovers; Damien and BoBo.

They look adorable from the road, too!

Now it's time to eat dinner, settle in, and watch "The Walking Dead". The season premiere is at 9 PM. Then Bar Rescue. Sunday TV is the best! I hope you guys had a great weekend. Be sure to check out my "Link Up" page to check out all of the awesome link up's and blog hop's going on, on Monday's!

  7. Fireball whiskey and apple apple sound good!

  8. Sounds like a great weekend! I watched "After Earth for the first time on Saturday and it was a good movie. You're right...the critics were way too hard on that movie! I also watched the marathons of Undercover Boss, including the Moe's one. I can't say that I like Moe's so much, but the show brought me to tears yet again. Have you ever watched Bar Rescue? I believe it comes on TNT or FX. Check it out on the weekends if you get the chance. Great post!

  9. Sounds like you had a weekend full of awesome!! I am going to have to try the Fireball in an apple cider beer, I keep hearing about it and haven't tried it! I love the Woodchuck Fall Cider and the Cinniful Apple cider by Angry Orchard which are similar tastes I think. I hope your last week is amazing. And if it isn't, you can be thankful it is your last week! Am I right?! Haha.

  10. Can't wait for you to start your new job! :)
