This weekend was fantastic - we worked around the house and relaxed. Friday after work, we met up with another couple for dinner and it was a lot of fun! Of course, I didn't get any pictures but it was so nice getting to know our new friends.

Saturday we woke up and got right to work on the yard and the inside of the house. Stephen mowed and cut down part of a tree while I cleaned the inside of the house. After I finished cleaning, I joined him outside to trim the bushes (I may or may not have butchered a bush or two, oh well) - can't wait to get rid of most of the bushes and start fresh! After finding out it would be a 2+ hour wait to get my oil changed, we decided to run to Homegoods instead and get a new desk organizer. I should've taken a before picture but Stephen had all our bills sitting on the desk and I used a small organizer that did not match the office at all. I wanted to get something that matched and would fit everything so the desk could be clean (and maybe my want for a new desk would go away ;)). I really love the new organizer that we found - $20 for a new organizer vs getting a new desk was definitely worth it.

We decided to grill out steaks Saturday night and they were amazing! I'm so glad we finally got a grill, we're both really enjoying it. I paired the steaks with sweet potato puffs and roasted balsamic brussels sprouts.

After church on Sunday, we headed to the golf course to play a par 3 course. As soon as we hit our tee shots on the first hole, it started raining so we called it a day and got a rain check. The storm hadn't hit our house yet, so we chipped some in the backyard until the rain came.

I finally got out our fall decorations and quickly realized that I didn't have a lot of stuff... I'll definitely be hitting up the sales in a few months to stock up for next year. Here are the few items that I have...

I spent the rest of the day ironing and spending time with Stephen since I'll be gone the next 2 days for work. Hope everyone had a great weekend!

  1. Love the fall decor, it's still too hot here for me to even think about putting mine out! Hopefully by October 1st I'll have some motivation. Y'all sound like me and my husband, I'm always working on the inside of the house while he's working on the outside! Have a great Monday!

  2. Sounds like a fun weekend! An organized desk makes my heart happy :) You might not have a lot of fall decorations but they are really cute!! Also, jealous of the golf you were able to play! I have to get on a course soon!

  3. It's funny how moving into a house suddenly all of the regular decorations look a little different, isn't it? I love that sign you have by your tv though; that's super cute! It looks like a great weekend and your office is really coming together!

  4. I love all the fall decorations you have. Especially that "H" pumpkin!
