Weekend Recap

I really need to manage my time better since it’s now Tuesday and I’m just now getting around to recapping the weekend.

This weekend was our big Valentine’s Brunch and I think it was a huge success!  We had just under 30 people at the house and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.  The downside to hosting?  I don’t get a chance to catch up with all of my friends!  But it is nice to see a few of these faces a few times a year and I’m glad our brunch is one of those occasions :).

Friday was full of prepping for Saturday but I did manage to squeeze in a manicure and quality time with Jessica.  Their new pup is absolutely delicious and I couldn’t get enough of her little kisses!

Sunday greeted us with a perfectly gloomy day that was made for cuddling on the couch.  Hosting really takes it’s toll on Lucy; she probably slept for a good 20 hours afterward!

Weekend Recap

Hello there!

On Sunday evenings, I’m always so sad to see the weekend fly by so quickly so I thought it best to document them and remember how fun they are {even when they aren’t}.

Lee and I had a date night in Friday evening complete with homemade pizza and wine.  We made the pizza together, took some silly photos, and actually ate at the kitchen table instead of on the couch watching television {horrible habit of ours}.  The pizza turned out less than ideal since I didn’t realize the fresh mozzarella needed to be dried out.  Kinda bummed, but the toppings were delicious!  We enjoyed a bread-free dinner and each other’s company.

Living in a planned community means there are constantly new houses being built.  Unfortunately for us, this also means debris which could lead to flat tires.  Enter: the Leonhardts.  Saturday morning, we started the day at the Subaru dealership to buy a new tire then headed to the Shulers for James’s famous BBQ.  We had springlike weather and enjoyed much of the day outside whilst Cullen entertained us on his Power Wheels.  I wish I snapped a photo!  Such a cutie!

I snuck out of the house Sunday morning to meet Belle at Target and found the tiniest little shoes.  Little human clothes are adorable.

We spent the day organizing, cleaning, and styling the house in preparation for next Saturday’s brunch.  It’s so funny to see our house become a home in the year that we’ve been here.  It finally looks like people live there instead of random furniture strewn about.

Of course, we had to end the day with the Super Bowl {Beyonce put on a fantastic show, btw!} and a tiny bit of the Puppy Bowl.  Lucy had no idea what was going on, but she did not like it one bit.  We only watched about three minutes of the Puppy Bowl and she barked the entire time.  So funny!

And since football doesn’t quite hold my attention for an entire three hours, I had a chance to finish up my Instagram/PostalPix scrapbook.  I love how it turned out and can’t wait to start documenting February’s photos.  This project is so easy and on the inexpensive side of things.  It’s fun to think about where these tangible photos will be years from now and who will look at them!  I hope future generations enjoy!
