This weekend ended up being different that originally planned with my sister deciding not to visit - even though we missed her, we found plenty to do and had a great weekend :)

Friday, I kicked off the fun weekend with lunch with one of my co-workers at Chicken Salad Chick. I got the Southern Chicken Salad and it was delicious! We will definitely be going back there for lunch. While I was at work, Stephen received our new kitchen table, except 2 chairs were missing... thankfully they didn't give us any trouble and we'll be getting the final 2 chairs as soon as they come in. Later that evening, we met up with some of our friends to go rock climbing! We had such a fun time and I even overcame my fear of heights a few times ;)

Saturday morning, we were planning on hitting a few garage sales and then going to the parade of homes, but we slept in later than we thought we would so we skipped the garage sales and hit 5 houses on the parade of homes. They had some amazing homes and we loved seeing the different designs - one of them reminded me of Ron Burgundy's house but we weren't allowed to take pictures there. 

I'm obsessed with this entry way

This was the coolest bathroom ever! 

After the parade, we ran to the mall to run a few errands and while we were there, we ran into the bookstore and I found the magazine that my friend Camilla's wedding was featured. They did a great little spread on her wedding and the pictures look beautiful!

For dinner, Stephen wanted to grill out pork loin and he did a great job! I paired it with roasted broccoli and gnocchi. We enjoyed sitting outside together while he was grilling because the weather was amazing (can't wait to finally get a patio set so we can eat out there)! After dinner, we finally started LOST and so far, we're already hooked. It'll be interesting to see how it all turns out...

Sunday we did the usual... church, Publix, mowing (that was Stephen lol), ironing and getting everything ready for the week ahead. I was hoping to relax a little more but it ended up being a fun weekend!

I already forgot to mention it on Friday, but I snagged a few great items from the Mud Pie sale. They have some items up to 80% off which is an amazing deal!! There were lots of swim suit cover ups which is perfect for summer! I grabbed this cover up (in 2 colors) and this tunic.

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Linking up with Biana.


  1. I so want to to a Tour of Homes! Looks like a ton of fun!

  2. Love the new table and can't wait to see what you do for a centerpiece! I'm glad you enjoyed checking out the Parade too! We made it for 4 more houses this weekend and got some great ideas

    1. Thanks!! I need to get going on the centerpiece before the Mother's Day cookout! I'm sure y'all saw some great homes and got fantastic ideas!

  3. Those houses are to die for!! Gorgeous! And I just love your new table!

  4. Ah, rock climbing looks so fun! It's cool because it's like one of those exercises when you don't feel like you're doing much but you are. (I actually haven't been in like...well, since like middle school, but I think it looks fun/not too hard lol.) That picture of the bathroom up there is AMAZING. Bathrooms are underrated sometimes, but I would DIE for that tub. I used to work in mortgages and I was invited to a "house tours" thing once and I didn't go and I've always regretted it! (I think I chose to sleep in, hah.)

  10. Glad you had a fun weekend! That parade of homes sounds awesome, I wish they had something like that around here! Have a great week!

  11. Ahhh! Your new table looks so good! Bummer the other two chairs didn't deliver yet, but glad they didn't give y'all any trouble! The parade of homes sounds so fun!! There is an event this weekend in downtown Nashville for people to go in and tour homes/lofts downtown that I think would be so fun!

    Dinner looks delicious!! I love seeing what y'all always come up with, they always looks so well put together lol. Glad y'all had a great weekend! :)
