Have A Wonderful Week!

The weekend has come and gone and we find ourselves at Monday again. For me, it's all about making the weekend count.

Nick and I started off the weekend by having breakfast for dinner on Friday night. We enjoyed pancakes, bacon, cheese omelets, and grits on our deck.

The food was amazing and it was a great night to get outside and enjoy each other's company.

On Saturday, Nick headed to his parents house for a mini family reunion of sorts. I stayed home and had a pretty productive day. I got to some home improvements projects that need to  be done, like, last year when we moved in.

The outdoor trim on the French doors was in terrible shape. I sanded and painted.


Life IS good, but I don't need it to say that on my dining room wall. I don't know why I didn't take this decal down the day we moved in. I hate it!

Life is BETTER! No more decal!
It's official - Empire Fleet Blue will be going on our kitchen and dining area walls (eventually)!
I also did a little bit of shopping on Saturday. New York & Company had a buy one get one free sale on their pants and denim. I needed pants for work and I love the wide legged trousers at NY&C. I think I have them in almost every color now.

I got home to discover this...

Possibly the most annoying thing EVER. I guess another trip to the mall was going to be in order.
Sunday was a clean up day for me. I vacuumed, did a load of laundry, dusted, made my husband some welcome home chocolate chip walnut cookies, and picked up around the house. I also headed back to the mall to have the security tag removed from my purchased pants. While I was out I stopped at Bed, Bath, and Beyond to pick up a new iron, ironing board cover, and some spatulas. I wish it were standard that every 5 years that you are married you should register for gifts again... have people help celebrate your anniversary! I made time for an amazing two and half hour nap, and finished the weekend by getting my Big Brother fix.
As much as I don't like Aaryn, at least someone grew a pair and started playing the game this week!

Follow along this week on Facebook and Twitter.

A great way to start a Monday - Keurig brewed mudslide flavored coffee with sugar free Italian sweet crème creamer, sugar free chocolate syrup, and stevia!

Rockin' red nails this week (Essie Scarlett O'Hara)!


  1. Wow! Look at you! The doors look great and I can't wait to see photos of the new paint! I love breakfast for dinner.. we had a month long kick of that so we are worn out but I think I might bring it back soon!
