After a quick trip during the week to meet our niece, we were happy to have a weekend at home. Stephen had to get up for work at 4am on Friday after getting in late the night before so we didn't stay up too late on Friday. We enjoyed a delicious pre-made dinner that I picked up from Publix and a few Office episodes before Stephen was out by 9pm.

Saturday, we made a delicious breakfast before heading out to go shopping for some things for the house. I finally tracked down the sofa table I've been wanting for our family room and found the perfect one at World Market. Right now, it's 25% off, which saved me $75. I think the sale runs until sometime this week. I was a little nervous about the color since we now have 4 different colors of wood in our family room if you count the bar stools. I think it works well - I love the length behind the couch but Stephen is a little concerned about the height since it's almost taller than our couch. I'd love to hear what you think about it - keep it or return it?

We also tried to look for some decorations for the table but didn't have any luck. I need to look through some more inspiration pictures and get a feel for what I actually want to put on the table. I got that brown basket to put a blanket inside but the basket is too wide. I definitely want a pretty white hydrangea arrangement for the table but that's hard to find since every store has fall and Christmas decorations now - I might have to hold out for spring. 

We also looked into kitchen tables at Pier 1 because they are having a sale until the end of the month. We really liked this one because it can seat 8 if you use the extensions. We originally wanted to build our own farmhouse table but we're still on the fence. I also like this one but it doesn't have a leaf. 

Saturday night we had a work function about an hour away. Unfortunately, as soon as we got on the interstate, there was a wreck that took us 1 hour to go 3 miles and of course, the wreck was in between exits so there was nothing we could do. We showed up very fashionably late... Even though we were late, we had a great time and enjoyed some great food! We even got to meet my co-workers adorable baby boy. We were definitely in baby heaven this week ;)

Last year, I made Christina's pumpkin dip and everyone loved it so much that I was begged asked to make it again. Once again, everyone raved about how delicious it was! I also made green beans as a side dish.

Sunday, we weren't feeling too great so after church, we enjoyed laying around most of the afternoon. We did get up and do some chores and Stephen grilled out an amazing dinner (once again ;)). I was really hoping for a rainy Sunday but we got that Saturday (of course while running errands) and Sunday was beautiful but hotter than blue blazes! I don't know when Florida's going to get the memo that it's November, but I'm running out of things to wear that aren't too hot but don't scream summer.

Hope everyone had a great weekend! We are having serious Siena withdrawals over here - only 15 more days until I get to squeeze those cheeks again!

Linking up with Biana.
