Weekend Highlights

Happy Monday chickadees!
Notice anything different around these parts?
I got inspired on Friday to revamp my blog and this is the outcome of several hours of work. I still have a few kinks to work out and some things to update, but I'm pretty pumped about it!

Let's get to some weekend highlights!
My highlights included:

~Updating my blog design

~Learning a little bit of html coding (although I realized just how inept I am in general at it haha)

~Friday double date with a couple friend: 2 bottles of wine for the table, calamari, margherita pizza, and tiramisu. Perfect way to end the week if you ask me!
~Baby shower on Saturday afternoon for my friend from work--loved celebrating her little guy and her journey into motherhood! And I won one of the baby shower games, too :)
~Driving with the sunroof open and the windows down as we hit one of our first 80 degree days!

~Visiting my parents

~Finally got to wear my new lace eyelet shorts
it's hard to see the eyelet part, but they're only $19.99 at Target
~Celebrated a friend's birthday at her and her husband's house around the fire pit

~being sickened by the way some of the people acted at the Lilly sale at Target--was in the store for no more than 5 minutes and turned around and left because of how ridiculous people were. I swear I'll never go to something like that again. 

~Sunday errands

~Took advantage of Loft's Friends and Family sale

~installed a new light in our downstairs guest room (and made plans for the rest of the room's update)

~Spring cleaning--took a HUGE load to Goodwill

~Chipotle for dinner

~Watched Shawshank Redemption with MG and Cooper
~Discovered that Fraggle Rock (the first season) is on Amazon Prime! Throwback to my childhood!

~Finished up the night watching Game of Thrones and then headed to bed.

How was your weekend? Get into anything fun?
Linking up with these pretties today:

  1. Loving your eyelet shorts! Target? If so, I almost grabbed the exact same pair and now wish I would have;) And I am SO with you on the Lilly thing. I, of course, couldn't get to a store with a newborn at home, but the website even crashed because people are so cray!!! I don't understand why Target doesn't limit in-store purchases. I heard people were swiping entire racks of dresses and rows of shoes and that's just not fair - I mean, we all know they're going to end up on ebay. Target could do more to prevent this for sure.

  2. I love the look of your blog, good job! I redid mine this wekeend too and it was so frustrating. I stayed away from Target this weekend and I'm glad I did, it sounds like it was crazy every where. Glad you had a great weekend! Happy Monday!

  5. Shawshank is such a good movie! You can never go wrong watching that...or having Chipotle for dinner. Both are excellent choices in my book.

  6. Love the new design here! Sounds like a great weekend with friends and family. I can't believe Fraggle Rock is on Amazon Prime! I used to watch the reruns of that when I was little because I was obsessed with the Muppets! I will have to check that out! I am so excited that Game of Thrones has started back up again, but since its a show I watch with the bf, I have to wait to watch it. Its so hard to avoid spoilers...I have to hold off on social media between 9-10 on sunday nights!
    Hope you have a great week!

  7. The new design looks awesome! I love the colors. Yeah, I steered clear from Lilly this weekend. I actually went to Target around noon to pick up a couple random things (of course) and there wasn't even a sign that the Lilly collaboration had happened, everything was completely gone.
