You Know A Weekend Is Well Spent....


When...
#1. You watch 2 movies in 1 night: Ides of March and Bad Teacher
(...and still fall asleep before the clock hits midnight.)
#2. You are actually with it enough not hungover to make it to a morning spin class
(...and get your butt kicked and actually enjoy it.)
#3. You finally find new curtains for your family room after searching for months
(can we say World Market?! thank you.)
#4. You build a fort in your family room like you're 12 years old again.
..it's not like we do this every weekend, FYI ;)



...and admit it was a pretty damn good time
for a Saturday night.
#5. You indulge in some late night fro yo because it sounds more appealing
than an actual dinner.

(my fav mix is: chocolate and raspberry fro yo with choc chips, strawberries, and oreos on top)
 Love in a cup. pure love.
#6. You spend excessive time in Hobby Lobby picking out supplies
for upcoming DIY projects
(...and don't even care how much time has passed because you have all day to do anything.)



#7. You drink wine alone

hey..I have my best ideas when I have one glass of wine
and no intentions on leaving the house.
#8. You finish reading the Hunger Games and then relate your own life to the story.
Like, telling your husband to give your dog more food
 because he NEEDS more food to survive
(...hint: I did that.)
#9. You actually have time to paint your own nails
...versus paying someone to do it.

My new fav nail polish
"Fly" by OPI (in Nicki M. collection)


So, what have we learned here?

You know your weekend is well spent when...
 you do a whole lot of NOTHING.


(..these kind of weekends are necessary
once in a while, don't you think?)



Last but certaintly not least--

Let's talk about about how much I'm crushing on my new blog design.
KC&CO got a makeover.


So, what's new here?

<---On my left sidebar, new networking icons.
Find me on twitter, pinterest, and facebook.

<---Personalized pages are added for: About Me, Our Wedding, Fashion, Recipes, and DIY projects. You can click there to see posts related to those topics! It's much more reader friendly and makes it easier to find things you are looking for.

<---A new BUTTON. If you currently have my old button on your blog...thank you, and I love you for it. But, will you do me a favor and update it to this new button?

<---Don't you just love the graphics with the arrows and pastel/glitter confetti dots?!
I've been loving pastel colors lately..mint green, light pink, and some gold?
Right up my alley!


I loved my last design, but this year I really wanted to switch things up and go with a more simplistic design. Tone things down and clean it up a bit you could say. I owe all of this wonderfulness to...


my good friend Drew


Drew is extremely talented and is one of the sweetest girls I've met here in blog land. She just started doing blog designs (she's also an amazing design contributor for Jen at Made By Girl...amazing, right?!) so if you are interested in getting a new design, you better hurry up and contact her!

Thank you, Drew.
I'm in love with my design.


Only 7 more followers
