VISITORS + SOME OUTFITS!


Hey guys!

Did your team win the Superbowl last night?
I didn't really care either way who won, but was somewhat pulling for the 49ers!

We had some visitors this weekend at our house and even managed to get surprised by a few more.
Friday after work we were expecting Billy's brother and his Dad to come into town, but when we opened the door his uncle and cousin came with them too. It was so fun to see them and have them stay with us for a night. Billy had a hockey game to ref so we went down to campus to watch him (or to almost get kicked out for cheering too loud-yep, for the ref... ha) and then we went to a couple places afterwards for dinner and drinks. It was an entertaining (and late night) for us, but somehow I still managed to get up for spin class at 9 on Saturday morning! Success!


I managed to wear two striped dresses this weekend..guess I was really in the mood for them.
Can I just mention real quick how hard it is to look cute in the winter?
You only have so many options! 
Anyway-the first dress (that is under the cream sweater and is red/navy) is from Kiki La' Rue, scarf Marley Lilly, Boots UrbanOG, and sweater is Forever 21.

This is what I wore Saturday night for date night.
Dress Forever 21, sweater is h&m, belt is from Target, and unfortunately I can't remember where I got the chevron necklace.

Saturday afternoon the boys left and me and Billy had date night the rest of the evening. We actually ended up finding one of our favorite new pizza places by luck! We were in the area going somewhere else but decided to try somewhere new (Meister's Pizza/Bar in Grandview) instead, and boy was that a good decision on our end! They have some amazing pizza. If you go-get the deep dish. They put the sauce on top of the cheese and toppings and it was SO GOOD. I can't stress that enough. We were happy campers ;)

 

On Sunday besides watching the game, we ran errands and finished up an awesome DIY project around our house (that will be posted on Thursday) and we are SO happy we did it! Stay tuned for that. I also got around to painting my nails pink and red for Valentine's Day and we hung this print from the lovely SS Print Shop in our bathroom!


 

Tonight, I was invited to go to a tasting event at Red Lobster with some other bloggers and we are trying out their new menu with lighter calorie options that is currently in the works! How fun is that?

Will keep you posted with yummy details, of course. What kind of blogger would I be if I didn't? ;)

I have to ask...is anyone else watching Pump Rules after the Bachelor on Monday's? Someone? Anyone?! I fully admit that I'm 100% obsessed with this show. I may be a bit biased because Lisa is one of my favorite housewives anyways, but it's like the new Hills! Maybe even a bit better at times. Except Brody isn't in it and that definitely gives them one strike against them.

  3. Yes. I TOTALLY agree with you that it's hard to dress for winter. There are only so many shoes that are practical in this gross snow. But you looked adorable in both of your choices!

  4. It's funny... I actually love winter clothing, but that's probably because I live in San Diego and don't get too many opportunities to wear tights and layers. ;)

    Love your outfits!

I just told my husband the other day Vanderpump Rules reminds me of the Hills! I'm soooo obsessed with it! My girlfriend and I have a trip planned in June to go to LA and have reservations for Villa Blanca and SUR. So excited!

  14. This is crazy, but I am literally wearing the exact (well almost minus the belt and hunter boots) same outfit to work right now that you wore on your date night Saturday! I just saw the picture and was like oh my gosh, we have on the same outfit!

  15. Your outfits are always so adorable. I feel like I need to make more of an effort...I mean, I wore sweatpants during the super bowl and we had guests over. Whoops. Cute nail polish too! :)

  16. Vanderpump Rules is by far the best reality show on these days. My fiance watched it with me and got so confused- he was like i can't understand what's going on they all look alike. Bless his heart. It was also the episode where the guys take their shirts off and act like they're going to fight. He said it was the worst fight ever, and I told him honey they're all actors and models of course they're really not going to hit each other. Okay, that's enough rambling from me... :)

  23. KATIE! I am OBSESSED with Pump Rules!! And I totally can't wait to watch it tonight (and the bachelor - of course!) Are you just so ready for 2 nights of Bachelor?? And pretty sure if Pump Rules was on every night, I'd be happy. Looks like you had a wonderful weekend, xoxoxo!

  24. Your weekend outfits were so cute! & yes I watch Vanderpump Rules too. I have to flip from The Bachelor to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to Vanderpump Rules!

  25. You and your outfits are adorable! I wore scrubs all weekend and only saw bits of the Super Bowl. I wasn't very impressed with the commercials; I wonder if they've just given up on great ones due to all the hype around them?

  26. Looooooooove Vanderpump Rules! It's such a train wreck, but I think it's pretty freakin' entertaining. Glad I'm not the only one :)

    PS - Love those outfits! I'm a suck for stripes.
