Weekend Recap

LILIES

FRIDAY I CAME HOME TO SOME SWEET SURPRISES. LANE, WHO HAD STAYED IN NEW ORLEANS THURSDAY NIGHT FOR GUYS NIGHT WITH OUR BROTHER-IN-LAW, SURPRISED ME FRIDAY EVENING AFTER WORK WITH BEAUTIFUL LILIES AND A DELICIOUS MEAL.

STEAK AND VEGGIES

THEN, ONE OF MY LONG-TIME BEST FRIEND’S, KORISSA, ASKED ME TO BE A BRIDESMAID BY SENDING ME A PERSONALIZED TUMBLER FILLED WITH AN OPI NAIL POLISH, AN eos LIP BALM AND A RING POP.

BRIDESMAID GIFT

^SERIOUSLY, HOW CUTE!!

KORISSA LIVES IN CHARLESTON AND WORKS FOR A SALON, KILLING IT AT HAIR AND MAKEUP. SHE GENEROUSLY GIFTED ME MY HAIR AND MAKEUP FOR MY WEDDING WEEKEND AND THE RESULTS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES. A FEW WEEKS AGO, HER BOYFRIEND, JORDAN, PROPOSED AND I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER FOR THEM! THEY HAVE SET A DATE FOR NEXT APRIL AND I AM ALREADY COUNTING DOWN TO THE CELEBRATIONS!

IT’S CRAZY TO BE AT THE AGE WHERE YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS ARE GETTING MARRIED. WHEN LANE AND I GOT ENGAGED SEPTEMBER 2013, ONE OF MY OTHER BEST FRIENDS, YASMINA, GOT ENGAGED 2 DAYS LATER AND ALTHOUGH THEY HAVEN’T SET A DATE YET, THEY WILL BE ANOTHER 2016 WEDDING. LOVE IS DEFINITELY IN THE AIR AND I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR THAT BECAUSE HAVING BEST FRIENDS WHO ALL LIVE IN DIFFERENT STATES CAN DEFINITELY BE HARD, BUT WEDDINGS BRING US ALL TOGETHER AND CLOSER IN WAYS WE DIDN’T EVEN KNOW WAS POSSIBLE!

ON SATURDAY, WE WOKE UP TO THUNDERSTORMS AND ENJOYED THE COZY, RAINY MORNING. MY MOST FAVORITE THING IS SUNSHINE ON SATURDAY MORNINGS, BUT IF WE CAN’T ENJOY SUNSHINE, THE EXTREME OPPOSITE IS NICE TOO.

ROUX

^ONE OF ROUX’S FAVORITE THINGS IS LOOKING OUT THE WINDOW IN THE OFFICE AND WATCHING THE RAIN FALL. HE’S SO CUTE.

LANE MADE A DELICIOUS FRITTATA, FILLED WITH A WEEKS WORTH OF LEFTOVERS AND I USED THE TIME TO DO SOME TIDY-ING UP AROUND THE HOUSE. A FEW HOURS LATER, WE DECIDED WE NEEDED TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE FOR SOME REASON OR ANOTHER AND WITH NO REAL PLACE TO GO, WE ENDED UP FURNITURE SHOPPING FOR A NEW CHAIR IN OUR DEN. ONE THING WE WERE BLESSED WITH (AMONG MANY OTHER THINGS) WAS GREAT HAND-ME-DOWN FURNITURE. IN ADDITION TO OUR GORGEOUS ETHAN ALLEN COUCH AND OTTOMAN/COFFE TABLE (THANKS MARCI AND TAYLOR), WE ALSO HAVE A LEATHER RECLINER AND AN OVERSIZED UPHOLSTERED CHAIR THAT WERE ALL GIVEN TO US. THE CHAIR HAS DEFINITELY SEEN BETTER DAYS AND ALTHOUGH IT IS MY DARLING ROUX’S FAVORITE SPOT, IT SIMPLY MUST GO. LUCKILY, WE FOUND A GREAT CHAIR ON SATURDAY THAT TICKED ALL OF OUR BOXES AND ARE IN THE PROCESS OF DECIDING WHICH FABRIC WE WOULD LIKE BEFORE ORDERING IT. IT’S A LOT OF PRESSURE, BUT WE HAVE NARROWED IT DOWN BETWEEN TWO OPTIONS AND HOPE TO DECIDE AND HAVE IT ORDERED THIS WEEK! ON OUR WAY HOME, WE STOPPED FOR DINNER AT OUR FAVORITE NEIGHBORHOOD MEXICAN RESTAURANT AND REWARDED OURSELVES WITH, WHAT ELSE? FRESH MARGS!

THIS MORNING AFTER CHURCH, WE HEADED TO THE OUTLET STORES TO MEET UP WITH OUR FRIEND TYLER, WHO HAPPENS TO BE IN TOWN FROM NYC. WHILE HIM AND LANE CHECKED OUT WHATEVER STORES THEY WERE LOOKING AT, I HIT UP J. CREW TO DO SOME DAMAGE. GOT TO LOVE ADDITIONAL 60% OFF SALE MERCHANDISE! AFTER PIDDLING AROUND THERE, WE STOPPED BY THE GROCERY AND THEN HEADED OVER TO TYLER’S, DAD’S HOUSE TO DO SOME BBQ. IT WAS A GREAT DAY FILLED WITH LAUGHTER AND THEN SOME MORE LAUGHTER. GRATEFUL FOR GREAT FRIENDS!

WE JUST GOT BACK AND ROUX IS DYING FOR MAMA’S ATTENTION SO I AM GOING TO GO SMOTHER HIM WITH SOME LOVING NOW. 😉

I HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GREAT MONDAY!!!
