A Full House

Hi Monday, here you are showing your face again.
...when I'm not ready for you. 
How was everyone's weekend?

Like I mentioned on Friday, Billy's family came into town (they had a diaper party for a friend, and the girls had a bridal/bachelorette party) and per usual, it was so much fun but then again the massive bags under my eyes would tell you the same thing.

Friday we had everyone over to our house for pizza and drinks, and then we ended up heading downtown. I remember still being up right before the clock hit "5" and thought, alright, time to go to bed. Still have no idea what time the boys actually fell asleep!

Here's what happens when you try and get a decent group shot of the guys...
crotch grabs.

...and chest grabs. This picture I said "OK, ONE serious one!" and this is the best I could do.

On Saturday, it was Billy's cousin Shannon's (who introduced me to Billy!) bridal shower, and then later at night her bachelorette party. I didn't get any pictures from the bridal shower, except for my OOTD, because I forgot to bring my camera, but I did get a couple from the bachelorette party. Once the other girls post theirs, I will share some more. 

I asked you guys via Instagram, which shoes..
nude or black?

and most of you said nude! 
I loved all the feedback, but I had to end up wearing the black wedges simply for comfort reasons! My feet would have been killing me by the days end and remember, I was only on a couple hours of sleep. That's a bad combo. This was one of my favorite outfits this summer...I mixed black and navy, and different patterns. (What do you think about mixing patterns and navy/black?)

There were about 20 girls who went out for Shannon's bachelorette party (most of us all went to college together) and it was a blast. We danced and danced and danced and then got late night food. You know, what women do best on girls night outs. I even took home an awesome 3rd degree burn on my leg that evening that looks really girly and pleasant. Not.

{that's the bachelorette in the back...I'd say it was a success!}

Also, I have to say sorry, because I realized on Sunday that I was a bad blogger friend and hardly posted any pictures from the weekend. We were so busy the whole time, and I didn't have a chance to share much (meaning: eye candy). Next time I'll do better, promise.

Sunday night, Billy and I had a mini date night together and he took me out for sushi. Does anyone else get those sushi cravings that you need it right then and there? I don't get them weekly or anything, but when I do, I HAVE to go. 
Mmmmm...it was delish.

What was your favorite thing that you did this weekend?
Who watched the finale of the Bachelorette? (who didn't is the real question?)

I never and I mean, NEVER, thought it would be Jef as the last man standing. However, when I watched it last night I just melted at how cute he was with Emily, especially with little Ricky. The way he interacted with her was adorbs. I did wonder if Emily was thinking  "Arie is stupid hot" during the after the final rose. 
Thoughts? Who did you want to win?

I also just want to say thanks to those of you who leave comments weekly, and even daily. I truly appreciate them. 



  1. Arie is stupid hot. Duh. But watching Emily and Jef rewatch their proposal convinced me. I think they're actually in love. (which is a high bar in Bachelorette couples!)

  2. If you asked me from show 1 if Jef ever had a chance to win I would have said "hell no." I am still pretty surprised. But watching them together made me smile. They are sweet and he seems like a great guy. Just not sure they will last. Glad to hear he is moving to his own place and that they will take it slow. On the other hand Arie is SO so so hot and I saw another side of him on ATFR. He was really sweet too. I think the producers just showed up the physical side of their relationship which is so annoying. Oh well. Another season over. I will not be watching Bachelor Pad. I just can't deal w/ seeing Kalon eve for a second.

    Looks like you had a fab weekend!

  3. Sounds like you had a blast at the bach party!!

  4. What a fun weekend. I think we saw 5 am sat as well.

  5. Gosh your outfit is CUTE! AND the boys aren't bad either ;)

  6. I adore your outfit! I love the nude heels, too!

  7. So now I want sushi...asap. I'll have to alert the hubs that i know what were having for dinner! Looks like a fun weekend!

  8. that mint top is adorable! and that polka dot top and striped shirt is such a cute combo. i originally saw it on instagram and i just fell in love with it!

    girl, you sure do have a ton of handsome men in your life!

  9. I miss you. End of story.

    Oh wait, I have a sequel:
    I NEED to spend the weekend with you soon. Not want, but need. Got it?

    The end.

  10. That sushi looks amazing! It looks like you had a great weekend!

  11. Ugh Arie looked so good on the ATFR and I felt so bad for him. You can kinda tell he's never been dumped before haha. I thought Jef and Emily looked so adorable though. You can tell he practically makes her giddy and I hope they work out! Can't wait for BP tonight :)

  12. What a fun, action packed weekend! That sushi looks super yummy.

  13. haha silly boys! the chest grab picture looks like that hand just came out of nowhere!

    And goodness the bachelorette. I would have never thought in the beginning he would be the one. But now I love him and like you said you can tell they are in love and just so adorable.

    ... but arie is STUPID HOT! for real.

  14. I was team Sean!!! But if her and Jef are the real deal, I hope they work out!

    Hey I buzzed ya question on instagram--about your Ohio shirt/sweater purchases? Was wondering where they were from? loved the red heart one!

  15. LOVE this katie!! i love having people over and entertaining! and you are so grrreat at it!

    ok i love that i recognize people in the pics!! marissas Bf mike...and the guy in teh blue plaid shirt it kills me not to remember his name but we played the raunchy game with him on your deck hahaha

    glad you had a BLAST this weekend girly!! :-) and that sushi looks rediculously good. Can billy teach kurt to love sushi?


  16. I'm right there with you girl... Jef (with one f) totally swooned me over last night. Love those two! :)

  17. Holy cow! You were up when the clock hit 5? I am impressed! Sounds like an amazing weekend!

  18. This was one of my favorite seasons of the Bachlorette...I think Emily definitely made the right choice for her and Ricki...Jef seems like better "Dad" material. I think if she was just a single girl, not a Mom, she might have picked Arie...

    :) Lauren

  19. I have to agree with you about the Bachelorette, Arie is definitely "stupid hot", but I think she made the right choice in the end. The two of them seem very happy and in love and I hope they stay that way. :)

  20. I don't even know where to start

    1. I commend you for functioning on that little sleep! go girl!

    2. where is that robin's egg blue shirt from? I want it! and am obsessed with that outfit.

    3. I firmly believe that when people have real style, rules don't exist. Aka black and navy go perfectly together : )

    4. Now I REALLY want sushi. I may have drooled when I saw that pic on instagram.

    and I think this is the last one
    5. Arie is stupid hot, but I was always "team Jef one F" : ) so I was thrilled when he met Ricki and proposed
