Weekend in Photos!









Hola friends!

Happy Monday :)


How was everyones weekend? Ours was all over the place! On Friday, me and Billy stayed in and watched Moneyball together. We liked it, but both agreed it wasn't spectacular. Saturday, I went and did some serious shopping damage on things for our house. I got new pillows {chevron}, new lamps, and a huge floor length mirror for our bedroom. The Christmas decorations were finally taken down, too. 'Bout time. Saturday evening, we attended the annual Catholic Social Services dinner party. My Dad's best friend invites us and it's a nice excuse to get all dolled up and fancy for an evening. :) After the party, we went and met up with our friends for a going away party. My friend Jim is moving to Kansas and we had one last night out with him. Alicia and Holly even met up with us.. love those girls! On Sunday, it was two of my nieces' combined birthday party. I haven't had time to upload pictures yet, but will share when I do!

Here's a big photo dump of our weekend...

  11. I have heard so much about The Hunger Games lately. I'm not a huge science fiction/fantasy reader though so I'm not sure I'd like it.

  12. Omg the bowtie...PRECIOUS! LOVING your green dress, ma'am, AND those pillows.

    I, too, am super depressed Picnik is going away. What the hell. WHY??!!

    I've heard a lot about those Hunger Games books. Like Twilight, I refuse to even jump on that train because I know I'll be just as addicted as the next girl...aka: even MORE unproductive than I already am. (hence: me commenting on blogs while I'm at work...)

    Vicious cycle I tell ya!
