This weekend was filled with grilling out, shopping and house work - it was so nice having a full weekend at the new house! Friday after work, my boss hosted a little get together in honor of my birthday. It was a lot of fun and we all had a great time! (I did a total blogger fail and didn't get very many pictures)

I've never grilled anything before so I got the grill started then forgot about it so good thing guys were there to watch it and actually cook everything

Saturday we slept in then went shopping for the house. It was a lot of fun to finally purchase things instead of having to wait because we didn't have anywhere to keep it. We ended up getting a lot of pictures from Kirklands since they were having a big sale and picked up our remaining curtains and curtain rods from Homegoods. We also ran by ikea and it always shocks me when I see how many people are at that store! It's chaos at the Orlando store. On our way home, we had to stop in and get a free slurpee at 7/11. This is seriously the best deal ever - I mean, who would ever turn down a free slurpee?

After our shopping & slurpee adventures, we worked on the house and had our first cookout of the summer at the new house. Stephen made delicious brats and corn on the grill and I attempted Lisa's sweet potato fries which were good, but didn't turn out crispy or pretty like hers. I feel like I'm using my spiralizer wrong, but I don't know how you could mess that one up. For dessert, we tried out Stephen's new smores roasting rack for his grill and it worked really well.

The perfect Florida summer evening

We've got to get outdoor furniture and a new grill

Sunday, we tried a new church that we really enjoyed and then ran some errands. One of those errands was to Lowes so Stephen could get a bunch of things for all his house projects. Afterwards, he said it was so much fun and he loves going to Lowes... um yeah, not my kind of fun but he does stick with me when I go to Target ;)

It's been so nice getting things hung up in the house. I really do feel like it didn't feel like home to us yet because we didn't have anything on the walls or any curtains put up. This week I'm finally kicking off my house tour! Come back tomorrow for the master bedroom and bathroom. 

Linking up with Biana.


  1. Ha, I have actually never grilled either! Looks like you had a jam-packed weekend and got a lot done with the house. Can't wait to see the house tour :) Maybe I can get some good ideas.

  2. What a great weekend! It must have been so nice to enjoy it at the new house and get all those things done! The s'mores rack - I need it!

  3. What a fun time! We went to Ikea too, but we went right before it closed, so it worked out really well!

  4. Lowe's is not much fun for me, either - I used to work at one!

  5. I love Ikea :) the closet one is 4 hours away :(
