My Crazy Weekend

I found myself wandering around this weekend. I didn't quite know what to do with myself because frankly, we did not have one, single lick of plans. This is not a normal thing in my life. We are the type of people that always have something going on. Whether it be a party, family event, or a trip, we seem to constantly be on the everlasting go.  There were times when Ross and I just looked at each other and said, "This is nice." Nice to not be in a rush, nice to just piddle around, nice to not have anywhere to be, nice to just decompress.

Here are my weekend wearings. I have become a little obsessed with my button up shirts and skinny jeans. And these fabulous earrings, I won them from Ashley, whom I love to pieces. Then, I decided to dress it up a bit on Sunday for church.

It actually started to feel like fall this weekend. Yes, people, 67 degrees is somewhat "cold" for us Texans. It was raining most of the time and the temperatures stayed in the 60's all day Sunday. We went to a football game Friday night and I actually needed a jacket. Don't roll your eyes at me. My blood is used to 100 degree heat. I am adjusting. Give me some time. As much as I love summer, I got a little giddy with the cooler weather and I was almost bold enough to break out my riding boots and a scarf.
Like I said, the no plan weekend, had me pacing the floor at times trying to figure out what I could do. Boredom set in a few times, so I figured why not whip up another DIY nail polish statement necklace. For the full tutorial, click here. I got this one at Charlotte Russe for $10.00. It took me all of about 45 minutes from start to finish. I really like how it turned out and ended up changing a few stone colors from what you see in the picture. Ladies, this is SO easy. If I can do it, you can do it. I plan on doing a few more. I want to paint one with the Essie Mint Candy Apple polish.

Since I already had every single solitary polish strung out from painting my necklace, I figured why not paint my nails. This is my #1 go-to color for the fall. It's my all time favorite, You Don't Know Jacques.
Then came Sunday...rain ALL day, homemade vegetable soup, Houston Texans football and a nap. I couldn't have asked for a more snuggle up in your pajamas kind of day.

Moving onto to my nugget children...Landry looked like Yoda in Ross's Texas State shirt.  She said it was her BEAUTIFUL dress. She is saying "Eat'em Cats" in this photo. And then there is Logan with the Biebs at the mall. She asked me if Santa Claus could bring her this cut-out for Christmas. I told her, "Santa doesn't know who Justin Bieber is." It's the first thing that came to mind. Don't judge me.

So, there you have it, my crazy weekend in a nutshell. I know, I am exhausted too. 

What were you up to this weekend? I have feeling football, shopping or drinking a Starbucks Pumpkin Spiced Latte was involved.

There is a $330 necklace up for grabs! Make sure to go enter yourself a few times.

i had one of those weekends, too! but in effort to find something to do, we ended up being gone all day saturday, haha.
that is a really, really neat project! i am a certified messy person and i'm quite sure i could pull this off! however, considering it doesn't cost very much to make, i might as well give a try!

I think you deserved a nice relaxing weekend like this since you're always on the go :) I have got to try out the necklace tutorial. The ones that you have done have turned out so great! Also, I love that you told Logan that Santa doesn't know who Justin Bieber is. HILARIOUS. Have a great Monday!

The Mrs. and The Momma said...

Your weekend looked pretty similar to mine, minus the awesome DIY! I'm so going to have to try this!!!! I'm already thinking Christmas gifts....I'm just saying.

And I LOVED the weather....although my husband said I jinxed it by claiming "fall is here!" I'm pretty sure Halloween will be in the 90's. Yuck.

Rebecca @ Mommy in Heels said...

Your newest follow from YOLO! I LOVE what you did with the Charlotte Russe necklace....I just might have to try that!!

Simply Sarah said...

Even when you're not really doing anything, your weekends still seem so fun. Love those earrings! Like I said to you before, 67 degrees is still beach weather here in the northeast. Pretty soon I'll be shivering and buried under snow, haha. :)

Sometimes weekends without plans are the best! It's nice to just relax and hang out.
I loved your last necklace DIY but I think I love this one even more. It looks amazing, I'm so impressed!!

Sami said...

I am dying over the fact that you told your daughter Santa Claus doesn't know Justin Beiber! So funny! I wonder how Justin would feel about that ;) I didn't do much of anything this weekend either and it was fabulous!

Delusions of Grandeur said...

Shanna, what an awesome DIY necklace, and I'm LOVING the black and white stripes with the yellow skinnies! So fabulous lady. :)

Cathy said...

I absolutely LOVE your DIY necklace! So beautiful! I was feeling the button-down and skinny jean look too as we hit the 60s in Tx this past weekend :) Love your yellow jeans/striped button-down/black bubble necklace combo!

Rachel @lifeasMrs said...

Lol.. you know if Santa finds out who Beiber is.. My SIL found a life size cut out at Toys r us over the summer. She bought one for my neices bday party.. maybe Santa likes to shop there?

Selma @ Crazy Little World Of Mine said...

Oh I'd give anything to have cooler weather...67 sounds wonderful. We had over 100 and that was not a lot of fun for a mid-September weekend. :( hahaha.

Love the nailpolish too.

Happy Monday.

A J said...

YAY for cooler weather in Texas! I'm happy for you!! Its going to be cooler this week in my neck of the woods too, I'm pumped.

I ADORE that OPI color! Its great for fall. And your DIY necklaces are awesome! I really don't think I would have the steady hands to do that, plus I don't have enough nail polish colors! But I love your works ;-)
