A Wedding, A Fresh Cut, and Bonfires.

Proof of a great weekend goes a little like this...

Exhibit A. 

Our little Rocky got a short haircut for summer and you all decided via instagram that he looks like a. Boo {the famous Pom}, b. a lion cub, and c. a fox. Ha. He is loving it!

He also had a play date with this little one {baby Maddox} and wanted to kiss him the whole time...


Exhibit B.

Celebrating my girlfriend Jen getting married! She was a stunning bride and we had such a good time at the wedding. How cute is the rustic centerpiece?

Exhibit C.

A bonfire and drinks with our neighbor friends.

Exhibit D.

We tried out Datelivery! Whaaa? Wondering what in the world I'm talking about?

Datelivery is a new monthly subscription that focuses on providing unique and creative date night experiences for couples to enjoy in the comfort of their home. Each month they ship out a different themed date night! Our theme for this box was an "Iron Chef Pizza Challenge"...

The only things we had to buy were any toppings we wanted, cheese, and sauce. It was nice that we didn't have to "think" of what to do for date night and of course, we are big pizza fans so we loved it all. If you are looking for a fun/creative way for different date night ideas-go check out datelivery!

*You can get 25% off with the code "KEEPCALM". In order to receive the first box, you must order by May 25th! (someone's birthday...hint hint me)

Exhibit E. 

My peony bush has finally bloomed!

What made your weekend good?

Now, I know this is about to be the start of a great next 7 days because it's my birthday week! Not that I'm excited or anything...

Go link up with Sami and tells us about your weekend. 

PS: Did you miss my $100 Visa Gift Card giveaway from Friday?! NOW is the time to enter :)

Be back tomorrow with a healthy recipe for summer!



  1. First of all...Datelivery?! I need to try this! We are always trying to think of something creative to do for date nights! 2nd, your peonies are gorg! And 3rd, I'm jealous of your bonefires...we need to get a fire pit! xoxo, Lindsay

  2. OMG I cannot get over the cuteness of Rocky's precious summer cut. I just want to squeeze Tilly all the time when she gets hers.

  3. Love that Datelivery thing but I can't seem to get to the website. Every time I click on the link (on your blog and another blog) it gives me an error and I am afraid to get to the site. Help!

    Love the puppy haircut!

    1. I'm getting the same error as well. I've emailed them and will update it once it's working! Stay tuned! :)

  4. What a cute date night idea! I wish I had thought of that so I could have made money off of it!

  5. I absolutely LOVE Rocky's summer cut...he's so cute :) I'm seriously considering this Datelivery service to try out! (As in...on their site reading right now ha) Also, I saw you mention on twitter that your peonies "finally" bloomed. Only ONE of my flowering plants has bloomed at all this year so I don't know what is going on. Craziness.

  6. What a great weekend! I love the wedding centerpiece...we're looking at something very similar for ours next month. And your little Rocky could not be any sweeter!

  7. That datelivery thing is tooo cute!! I love it and think I may have to get in on the action!

  8. I had issues with the website too, I just googled it and got there. I need to order this, we need to start making date nights a priority. Thanks for always providing new stuff for us to try out! :) Yeah for it almost being your birthday week. Can't wait to see what Steph sends your way, I know it will be awesome.

  9. Cute necklace in the top picture and Rocky is so cute with his new summer hair-do! Beautiful flowers, too! :)

    Have a great week celebrating your birthday!!!

  10. Rocky looks adorable as always! I talked to my Vet about getting Seamus a cut but she said it can make the grow back differently so you notice that with Rocky? Those peonies are gorgeous, the grew really big and full!

  11. You and Ryan are practically birthday twins...he's the 26th! Have a great birthday week!!

  12. Looks like a great weekend!! Rockstar looks so fresh with his new 'do. Love that lil pom face.

  13. How stinkin cute is Datelivery?! I love that idea!!

  14. Datelivery is such a good idea! Brian and I love making homemade pizzas too-so good!

  15. Those peonies are gorgeous! And I love Rocky's hair cut...so cute.

  16. The date night delivery box is such a good idea! What is it with receiving boxes in the mail that its just so exciting (hello Birchbox!. I will have to check it out!

  17. YAY birthday week! And ugh, peonies are my favourite flowers in the entire world, but the climate I live in isn't the most ideal to grow them in, I guess? At least that's what my mom always told me, but now after seeing your pretty flowers, I'm going to look into it more. I would really love to be able to have those in my house often :)


  18. Looks like a pretty darn perfect weekend to me! My GOODNESS Rocky is precious, and that wedding looked beautiful! My brother-in-law gets married on your birthday and Jared and I are both in it! So excited :)

  25. Happy early birthday, Katie!

    That Datelivery concept is so cool. They should be featured on "Shark Tank" for sure!
    And how cute and creative is that rustic centerpiece at your friend, Jen's wedding?

    I also noticed that your wedding date is the dating anniversary of me and my fiance. Love 8/28.
    We'll be getting married August 3rd of this year which is a little more than two months away. I can't wait to document the experience on my blog, My Honey Studies Money.
