Weekends are the best! I love mine! I usually spend the entire time with my family, esp my sis. This weekend was no different. Monday posts are always long, hang in there if you want to ;)

Friday ~ I had the day off, I spent the entire day helping my mom prep for my sister’s grad party. We cooked/prepared food from 10 in the morning until 4 in the afternoon. That night my sis and I went shopping for a party outfit for her. After B met me at my parent’s house and we sat outside and had a few drinks with them.

Saturday ~ I woke up early, my sis picked me up and we headed to pick up the balloons for her party. Once we were to my parent’s house we set up all the patio furniture, pulled weeds and decorated. I headed home to get ready then straight back to the rent's to set up all the food. The party turned out great!

Here are some pics of the grad ;)


I got to visit with family in from out of town along with some family friends. One of my bosses showed up and get this….i didn’t recognize him! How embarrassing! He has been my boss for 7 years! I’d never seen him in jeans and a baseball cap and it took me a good 15 seconds to recognize him! Did I mention this was in front of everyone at the party?!? Gosh, I haven’t been that embarrassed in a while! Ha! Needless to say I was made fun of for the rest of the night.
B got to meet some of my family and family friends that he’d never met before, he is so personable and cute ;) everyone loved and adored him!
The inflatable bouncer was there and I do have some battle wounds from fighting the slide….I went down head first and ended up with major rug burn type burns on my elbows, owie!

Me and Kayla in the jumper….I had a few drinks by then, can you tell!? Lol!
The guys in the pool playing volley ball: I didn’t get many pics, I’m quite bummed about that! But, the weather was PERFECT and we all ended up hanging out until around 10 at night.
Sunday ~ I was still worn out from the day before. I cleaned and did laundry for a little while then took a 3 hour nap. I heart naps! It was only in the low 70’s yesterday and partly cloudy so not tanning weather which is why I stayed inside allllll day! I loved it though, lazy Sundays are the best. I went to my parents for dinner and more relaxing. Only way the day would’ve been better is if B was there to enjoy it with me. But, my poor B was at work by 7:30 that morning, had to leave for a few hours of coaching hockey, then straight back to work. He wasn’t home until almost 10 last night! We watched Entourage and crashed. Does anyone else watch that show? Total guy show but I’m hooked cuz B has watched it the past 2 years.
On another note, I am finally posting on some giveaways that I’ve previously WON! Both items I received look perfect in my office! My office is not totally decorated yet so for now I’m just showing little bits ;)

I received a beautiful custom frame from Embellished Bayou! Check out the Etsy store, there are many unique gifts on the site! It has a “B” painted on it since eventually my last name will start with a B. It looks perfect on my file cabinet/hutch and I just love it! I don’t have a pic printed for it yet but I will have a black and white photo in it soon!

The other giveaway I won was a print from Kelly Ann Studio. I LOVE IT! And I happened to have the perfect frame in my office for the print. Check out Kelly Ann’s blog and her website!
After with the print:
Tell me the print does not look perfect in that frame!!
Here is a full pic of the desk as well:
What do ya think!?!
Some day I'll finish decorating my entire office and post more pics!
Happy MONDAY everyone!! :0)
