5 Ways To Make Sure You Have An Amazing Weekend

1. Buy this game and invite your friends over for game night:

Cards Against Humanity (click link to buy or learn more)

35 of you commented on my Insta picture expressing your undying love for this game,
so I did what anyone logical would do...
invited some friends over for game night tonight.

So excited to give it a test run!
 I'll report back with our thoughts on it, but I'm guessing it'll be a big hit.

2. Have a positive attitude:

or as one of my favorite quotes would say...
“Life is a bowl of cherries. Some cherries are rotten while others are good; its your job to throw out the rotten ones and forget about them while you enjoy eating the ones that are good! There are two kinds of people: those who choose to throw out the good cherries and wallow in all the rotten ones, and those who choose to throw out all the rotten ones and savor all the good ones.” C. Joybell C

I'm a firm believer that your attitude and outlook can be a deal breaker. If you're down in the dumps complaining about everything little thing, chances are you won't have a really fantastic weekend. So turn that frown (or bad attitude) upside down, and put on your happy face.

3. Roll your windows down (unless you're in TX and in that case just leave your AC on), turn the volume up, and listen to this song:

Holy Grail by JayZ fet. Justin Timberlake on Grooveshark

or this song:

A little country and rap for you, depending on your preferences. Me? I love both. :)
(go link up your favorite jam with miss yoga pants here)

4. Explore your city and try a new brunch spot:

Yup, another round of Katie and Angela's adventures of finding the best brunch in Columbus is happening this weekend. We can't wait to cross another place off our list and find (hopefully) another great place that I can share with you all! 

 5. Get outside:

 Go to your favorite local spot (for us this would be The Goat) and sit poolside with a cold beverage in hand


Go do something active!
(in my case and in this pic from last night the only active part I did was carry the ball bucket and putt putt a bit, but it still counts)

 ...and when all else fails, just go shopping.

So now that you know my weekend plans, what are you doing?
What are your favorite tricks to make sure you have a good weekend?



  1. Love both of those jams! I want to come hang out at that pool place, looks awesome!

  8. Everything about this post made me happy! We are having a game night on August 31 and Cards Against Humanity is on the list of what to play. I may even be pulling out the slip n slide. Oh and us in Dallas, Texas are keeping the windows up due to rain.

    C. JoyBell C. has some of the best quotes ever, good pick!

  9. I need that pool in my life! Don't forget doggy snuggles.. those always make for a great weekend! PS. I need to check that game out, I've never played! Have a fab weekend pretty lady!

  10. Pools, drinks, friends & good music all sound like a fantastic weekend to me! This weekend our city has their annual BrewFest on the waterfront - so that's where you can find us :)

  11. You are going to love Cards Against Humanity!! My friends grandma has a quote about cherries "Life is just a bowl of cherries, sometimes it's just a bowl of pits. It all depends on how you look at it!" Happy Friday dear!

  12. Outside is a must this time of year...and the card game is on my list..we do a game night with friends once a month, so this will be perfect! Have a great weekend girly! :)

  13. Love your brunch tour! I'm in Columbus too - my husband and I are on a challenge of eating at every Short North restaurant. I think tonight we're hitting Haiku. Sushi on the patio in this gorgeous weather? Yes!

  14. My friend Erin told me about this game last weekend! Unfortunately a baseball game was on so there was no pulling the guys away from that! HAHA! Next time though, next time! Hope y'all have a great weekend!

  15. Cards Against Humanity is a great game! My friends and I take an annual girls trip up north every year to a cabin and we brought them on our last trip. Needless to say they made for a great time!

  16. Definitely getting outside and being active. Summer is hands down my fav time of year and before we know it, it'll be over and everyone will regret not spending more time outside. Awesome advice!

    Happy Friday :)
