We had the best weekend hanging around the house and it was bliss! Friday after work, we had an exciting date night at our local Aldi picking up a few things for dinner and then after we got back, I gave Stephen a haircut - real exciting things ;) After dinner, we finished watching Tangled and headed to bed with no alarm clock set.

We actually slept in for the first time in who knows how long and after seeing an email for 50% off jeans at Old Navy, I ran out to the mall. I didn't end up finding anything but popped into Homegoods afterwards and spotted the perfect bench for our entry way. I've been looking for a bench for our entry for a while now and haven't been able to find the right one. I love the shape of this one and that it's all wood so I don't have to worry about kids putting their shoes all over it. After convincing Stephen it would fit, I brought it home and it looks perfect!

Now, I just need to find some pillows that coordinate well with the ones in the pictures because those are on our chairs on the opposite side of the room. I love floral pillows like this, this and this.

After getting the bench setup, we had lunch and then I cleaned the whole house. It felt so good to have a clean house where I actually cleaned everything and not just a quick vacuum. After cleaning, I painted my nails and watched 3 episodes of Southern Charm before getting ready for the white party. 

The white party was in downtown Orlando and was a lot of fun! It was for a great cause and we enjoyed getting to catch up with friends. I loved wearing my new dress and we made it to bed around 2 am that night. 

Our alarms came very quickly Sunday morning but we rallied and headed to church. After church, we had lunch with our friends and by the time we finished and ran to Publix, it was after 3. I took a quick nap while Stephen mowed and then got to work on some embroidery and getting ready for the week ahead. It's too bad there's not another day to recover but it was a slow weekend which was much needed

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


  1. Love that bench! I do the same thing with home pieces..I get an idea in my head of what I want, and then when I randomly find it I need to buy it THAT day. It looks so great in your entryway!

  2. What a cute little bench! Love the floral pillows on it, too! ;) And I'm loving your earrings you wore at the white party! Way to rally and head to church -- but yay for naps! ;)
