A Lovely Mess


April 4, 2011

This weekend was just that…a lovely mess. No complaints from this girl, as I tackled each and every thing I needed to knock out and still managed to have some fun with friends, too!

Recap time:
Friday night, Jeff and I decided to forego the grocery store to get dressed up for dinner, just the two of us. After going through dozens of restaurants and trying to figure out our “food mood”, we ended up right down the street at Stoney River Steakhouse. And I absolutely took advantage of our little date night as the chance to indulge in some surf n’ turf–yes, by now you must be aware this girl loves to eat 😉
Afterwards, we headed home to rent a movie–I would like to tell you how wonderful The Tourist was, however, this lady fell asleep once my head hit the pillow on the couch.
Saturday, I hit the gym, ran wedding/party errands, then met the Grunkes for lunch and people watching at Jackson’s, and then ended up changing our evening plans in exchange to hang out/grill with the Grunkes yet again…so fun and yet still a relaxing evening.
Sunday, it was all about church, working on more invites, buying picture frames so we can start on our gallery wall, taking an afternoon run for some “me time”, and then cooking dinner for a patio rendezvous…grilled swordfish in lemon butter dill sauce, rice, and salad! Jeff’s getting pretty impressive on the grill these days.

Gallery Inspiration–LOVE!

So there you have it–nothing spectacular off-the-wall by any means, but a weekend we desperately needing with all our upcoming travel activities…not that I am complaining–hehe 😉
Cheers to a happy week friends!!

    Well I can tell you that you really didn't miss anything by falling asleep to The Tourist – I wasn't a big fan.

    I love the first inspiration photo you have selected for your gallery wall. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

    Hope you are staying safe with all of those tornado's!

    Gallery walls are hard!!! They take forever to collect all the "right" pieces! 🙁

  13. Tiffany says:

    Love that you got surf and turf! My kind of girl!

    And I'm really loving this design with multiple different frames on one wall. I may have to do some re-decorating! 🙂


  14. It's great that you got so much done and still squeezed in some fun! I love your gallery wall inspiration. Ours is still in the works, but I hope one day it will look as amazing as the one's you posted 🙂
