No road trip or packing up the house

Finally! A weekend at "home". 
It felt so good not to pack up our entire house for a road trip or 
have any kind of schedule this weekend. 
We went with the flow, squeezed in some much needed "momma time", 
got a ton accomplished and caught up on some much needed rest.


I finally got this journal/notebook from Target.
 I smile every time I look at the cover. 
Thanks, Chris, for posting it on Instagram.

Two & Three
I met up with some of my most favorite ladies on 
the planet for a few drinky-poos and some sushi. 
That gorgeous lady on the bottom left just had her first baby about 
a month ago and this was her first night out since he was born. 


Building forts at the casa. 
I just couldn't tell them "NO."

I finally found some flats that don't give me blisters.
I scored them for $12.00 at DSW.
BTW, thanks for all the tips on Friday. 
You ladies never cease to amaze me 
with your suggestions and advice.  

No shame in this picture! 
This is my closet that got an overhaul and 
massive clean up this weekend. 
I feel like a weight has been lifted. 

My friend Courtney sent this to me. 
This not only goes for UT fans, 
but for those so-called "Aggies" as well.
The truth hurts, people.


Eight & Nine
It was TAX FREE weekend in Texas. 
What else can I say??

Chips, salsa, queso, beer and live music...yes, please.

It's official! Football season is in full swing.
 Let's show em' how it's done HOUSTON!!

Lame, I know, but I scrubbed all my suede shoes while watching the game. 
This cleaning set is the BOMB for removing spots off your suede shoes.
Try it.


Getting my hair did. 
My girl comes to MY HOUSE! 
How convenient is that business? 

After the "did". 
Love you, Happy! 
Yes, that is her name...Happy!
If you live in Austin, I can send you her info.

What I wore to church. More on this tomorrow.

So, how was your weekend? Eventful or laid back?

Your hair looks darling and this suede cleaning set you speak of... I gotta get my hands on it! I purposely don't buy suede shoes cuz I hate when they get all gross. And with Wisconsin winters, it's hard not to get them gross. YAY for football season thoughhhhhhhh!! :)

Love a laid back weekend. My 3 year old went to spend the weekend with his Nana so we just had the baby all weekend. We watched SO much tv and ate so much junk food. It was fun.

I hate when you have to pack up the whole house! NIce to have a "free" weekend

Unknown said...

It looks like you took full advantage of tax-free weekend. Nice work :) And your hairdresser comes to your house? Talk about service. Geez! And when you posted the pic on Instagram of the girls making the fort, it took me right back to my childhood. Why is that SO much fun to do when you're a kid?! So funny. Looks like they had a good time :)

Jamie said...

Always Maylee said...

Sounds like a pretty perfect weekend. We also, finally, didn't have to go anywhere and just stayed home and relaxed. Did some long awaited house projects, watched movies, went out to dinner... it was perfect. I love that your hair dresser's name is Happy and that she comes over... what! Awesome.

xo, Yi-chia

Hope you have a great Monday!

It must be so convenient to have someone to come to your house to do your hair. I wish my hairdresser would do that. But these pictures tell that you had a wonderful weekend and I hope your week is wonderful too!!

I need to clean and organize my closet room, soooo bad! There is more stuff in there than I know what to do with! Yay for ballet flats that don't cause blisters!

Anonymous said...

Sounds like a great weekend! Looks like you made out like a bandit during tax free weekend! There is no sales tax here in Oregon... we are spoiled! It's also against the law to pump your own gas!

Unknown said...
