Weekend Wrap-up

It was one heck of a weekend. Let it be said, I have the BEST friends who go out of their way to send me "funnies" to cheer me up post-surgery news.

Like Bobbie, who sent me a pic of my favorite Cam Cam to cheer me up! In an effort to maintain Cam's modesty, I'll just post the side by side comparison of me and that sweet girl - we would have been besties!

Or my Kimmy who sent me this hilarious rendition of T. Swift's "I Knew You Were Trouble" - which happens to be one of my favorite songs currently. But the goat, it's an amazing addition...

Or Cameron, my co-worker, who wrote me one of the kindest and most encouraging notes I've ever received. I'm seriously overwhelmed by the kindness of my friends!

On a "house note," I am a bit obsessed with driving by every day and looking at it. You guys, it's to the point where I think my car is recognizable to the neighbors. I had my first "wave to the neighbor" moment on Saturday - and she initiated the wave! It was so excited that I had to text mom and dad immediately!

The inspection is on Wednesday, and the only person more excited than me is my friend Vicky. I took her by the house yesterday, and we picked up these fab side tables from Target. Still not sure if they are going to work, but I'm pretty much obsessed with these beauties! Vicky and her fiance Evan treated me to dinner and game night at their place on Saturday and there was some serious trash talking during our game of "Sequence." So fun!

I mentioned that I plan to refinish the side tables that are in my room currently. Here's a pic of the "before" and the color I'm going for in the "after."

Well, I've got 2 more projects that I'm adding to the list:
1. Paint this frame - not sure what color yet, but it needs to be modernized a bit!

2. I'm also thinking of painting the twin bed that my Nanny is giving me for the second bedroom in the house. If I decide the mirrored side tables won't work in my living room, I think they'll be great in the guest room - but the twin bed is brown. So, the bed will need to be updated a bit.

I really love to refinish/paint furniture, so these projects make me giddy!

Finally, I'll leave you with 2 of my favorites... I am obsessed with these new candles that Momma got me when she was visiting. The scent is divine! And sweet Emily - this little munchkin is the best, with the cutest little baby giggle. Love her!

We are supposed to get hit with Snowpocalypse tonight, so might have a snow day tomorrow. Fingers crossed! xoxo, E


  1. I absolutely LOVE those side tables and am super jealous about them right now.

  2. So true! I can't wait until Wednesday and I really really hope all goes well!
