Weekend Recap - Otey's Fest

Last night Chad and I met up with Morgan, Mike, Allise, and Josh for the
4th Annual Otey's Fest
at Otey's Tavern in Crestline Village. This year Otey's Fest was held to benefit UAB's Comprehensive Cancer Center. 

The weather was a little cooler than it has been the past couple of weekends and there was a stage set up outside for live music featuring:
The Hurlers
 The Eliot Morris Duo
Secondhand Jive
Rollin' In The Hay

 Chad, me, Allise and Josh

 Even BIG AL was at Otey's Fest!! 

There are three chic villages in Mountain Brook:
English Village
Mountain Brook Village
Crestline Village

Otey's Tavern is in Crestline Village and there are lots of neat restaurants in all three of the villages. We had heard great things about a little Mexican restaurant named Taco Mama. I'm so glad we listened to the recommendations because after having dinner there on Saturday, I've decided it is my new favorite Mexican Place in Birmingham!! Bright lights are hanging outside and two sliding garage type doors are raised to open up the restaurant when the weather is nice. Chad had the Alabama Redneck Tacos which are pork tacos and I had an order of build your own nachos. After dinner we headed back to Otey's for more live music.

 Today was a pretty lazy day!! Allise and I rented  
This Means War

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THE MOVIE!!! I do love a good chick-flick and Chris Pine's looks alone can make any movie amazing. If you haven't seen This Means War and you like movies such as How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days, Sweet Home Alabama, and/or any other girlie movie then you have to rent it!!

I hate the weekend is coming to an end, but I am excited for
The Bachelorette
tomorrow night. I can't believe there are only two episodes left! Jef is still my favorite!


  1. Sounds like such a fun weekend!! I love that big Al was there! And I haven't seen This Means War yet, but it's on my list of to-see movies! I have such a crush on Tom Hardy! :)

  2. My sister and I rented This Means War last night and thought it was so good! Reese Witherspoon is so great, definitely one of my favorite actresses.

  3. This looks like so much fun and I love your entire outfit! Also I haven't seen that movie just yet but have heard it was good, so maybe I need to get on that! xo
