Weekend Recap

Sunday, May 15, 2016

It feels like lately I've only been able to blog about our weekends, but I'm hoping that changes very, very soon! I know I say this a lot, but we had a really great weekend. It was packed full starting on Thursday. We had some friends come to town to help host a baby shower with us, so we took them to dinner and just stayed low. 

I worked a half day on Friday and then met Leigh for lunch and went shopping all around town for my house. Leigh is a true artist and has such an eye for home decor so every time she comes to town, I beg her to redecorate my house. We went to Target and Hobby Lobby and bought a total of 7 lamps so that we could play around with the area and see which one we liked best in the space. Pictures to come because we decided on one! 

Oh, and I hung curtains and absolutely love how they turned out (after my mother-in-law hemmed them). They are the Ritva curtains from Ikea. 

On Friday evening, Andrew and I enjoyed a dinner alone at one of our favorite restaurants and then came home to start preparing for the baby shower. I made this Ultimate Brownie Trifle to take to the shower. 

Saturday was full prep for the shower and it was such a beautiful day, high of 85 degrees, sunny but very windy! So windy that I had to make sure that the tablecloths didn't fly anywhere! 

How beautiful are these flower arrangements Leigh put together for the shower? She put together the most gorgeous arrangements in silver cups, mason jars and mint julep cups. 

Some of the greenery and hydrangeas are actually fresh from my backyard. 

The couple's backyard bbq shower was a hit and we can't wait to meet baby O this July. 

We met Chesson and Patrick for brunch on Sunday as they were passing through town and man were we full afterwards. We walked off our brunch strolling through downtown admiring Artisphere.

Lots of baby shower leftovers made for a relaxing and extremely easy dinner in! 

I hope everyone had a great weekend! We will miss having guests with us but sooo excited to have some special guests coming to stay with us in a few weeks. Stay tuned to see who it is!
