Wonderful Weekend

Jon and I had a wonderful weekend.  I'd say it was a great mix of relaxation and productivity. We did our fair share of lounging around and watching movies, but also hit up the gym and cleaned the house.  We also booked our 1-year anniversary trip (more on that in another entry)!  We had my iPod blaring through the house on shuffle for the better part of yesterday while we were cleaning, cooking and eating dinner, and I must say, we should do that more often.  There's nothing like enjoying living life to a soundtrack.  

If you know me, you know that I enjoy all types of music--from classic rock to country to Christian to singer/song writer to rap (Jon calls me his little "Thuggish Ruggish" and finds it hysterical that I like rap music)-- I like it all.  

While we were finishing up dinner last night the song "Stay Fly" came on my iPod, and Jon immediately got excited.  He loves this song...mostly because it has the word "fly" in it, and he loves to fly. Occasionally, when he gets excited about something, he'll bust out singing the "Yee-a-aaah!  Bom, bom bom, bom bom bom" from the start of the song.   It always cracks me up.  Knowing how much he loves the song, I jokingly asked him, "Would you like me to have this played at your funeral?" And without hesitation, he said "Yes!  That would be awesome!"  We both started laughing.  

"Can you imagine?" I said.  "Everyone sitting there all solemn and sad, mourning your death, and I approach the podium and say 'Jon had one last parting request, and it was that I play you this song...'and then, to everyone's surprise, this loud rap songs rings out over the speakers?!" Seriously, can you imagine?  Oh the laughs and conversations we have :)

But enough about rap songs, check out the yummy dinner we were eating while being serenaded by Three 6 Mafia.  And no, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you.  That really is asparagus on my plate.  Yes friends, I am branching out a bit and eating a new vegetable.  In the spirit of full disclosure, I must tell you I only ate 3 of the 4 pieces on my plate though.  But progress is progress.   :)

New Coffee Table

After more than a year of debate, I've finally decided on and ordered us a new coffee table! As mentioned here , there were several styles I was considering.  However, in the end the tufted ottoman came out on top.  Not only was it versatile, so it can be used for years to come, but it also will be good for when we have kiddos down the road.  I can't tell you how many people I know who have had to either remove their coffee tables for the safety of their kids' noggins or have had to add those tacky corner protectors.  I did not want to invest in a new piece only to have to stow it away down the road.  So this seemed to be the perfect solution.  And thanks to my Joss & Main membership, it turned out to be the perfect price too. I was all set to order a tufted ottoman from Ballard Designs.  I had already received a swatch sample of the fabric I selected and everything.  But a few days later, I got a notification from Joss & Main of a sale event called The Tufted C

Our Living Room Mood Board

Our living room is slowly but surely coming together.  The biggest To Do's are ordering a new media console, painting the room (which is unfortunately open to the dining room, kitchen, office and breakfast area which means lots of painting to be done!), order a few lamps and a console for the long wall behind the couch. I realize I haven't shared any pictures of our "new" house (we moved in at the end of last October) with you guys.  So here's a glimpse of the living room before we moved in. This is what you see when you walk in the front door.  The dining room is on the left, the living room is straight ahead and the office on the right. A closer look at the living room.  Florida loves their plant ledges...I do not.  You win some.  You lose some.  I also want to replace the tile around the fireplace.   A view from the back of the living room looking toward the front corner of the house. The room behind the half green wall is the office sans the Fr

Southern Gentleman Baby Shower

Last month I helped throw my best friend (we met in 9th grade speech class :)) Lauren's baby shower for her soon-to-arrive baby boy, Gunner.  The shower had a "Southern gentleman" theme complete with bow ties, silhouettes and gingham print.  Personal touches and family items were used throughout, including baby Gunner's dad's bow ties :) Gunner's daddy's "going home" outfit greeted guests at the sign in table, along with a framed "Southern gentleman in the making" print. A variety of centerpieces graced the tables with groupings of baby mementos, flowers and photos. An antique baby basket helped house the gifts. The drink menu consisted of milk, apple juice (one of Lauren's cravings), fruit-infused water and coffee. The menu was made of a variety of brunch goodies including fruit, doughnuts, muffins, shrimp and grits, breakfast casserole and a waffle bar.  And of course no shower is comp
