weekend shenanigans

Weekend Shenanigans

You guys…it is hot as SHIT down here. Just felt the need to say that if you were wondering. I swear I just wrote last weekends post, no? Crazy how slow the weekdays are but how quick the whole week passes!

Friday started off with lunch at Babalu. I have one word for you: GUAC!!! I happened to mention something about guac to Laura on Thursday and it was all either of us could think about until we finally had our mouths full of it on Friday! I didn’t even snap a picture of it because I dove right in. I did manage to get my enchiladas before they were devoured.


Saturday morning I read a little and cleaned house. I also borrowed my sister’s pimento cheese recipe and made my first batch to take to Sheffield’s first birthday party!!! Several people commented about the cheese and asked for the recipe so I will be posting it tomorrow!


After the party, I headed over to Buy Buy Baby to register there. I found bedding that I fell in love with and have completely changed the color scheme I was originally going to go with. I picked up a blanket while I was there to use as inspiration for paint and decor.


Sunday morning I headed to Home Depot to pick up some paint samples!!! You guys, this is going to be so hard!!! Why are there so many shades of every color? Yikes! And I haven’t even decided on what color the walls are going to be. I originally wanted a light gray but now I am not sure. I grabbed some other neutrals and pretty blush pink samples. Decisions decisions!

After, I headed to Target to poke around and get our grocery shopping done. Ummmm how adorable is this mint green and gold heart ottoman??? And these wire baskets?!?!?!

I am really REALLY tempted to go back and get them for the nursery!!!

I came home and meal prepped and we are now up to the last season in Breaking Bad! Also, what would a weekend be without snuggling with our little Macachu. (Chris gave him a new nickname this weekend. Apparently he is a rare Pokeman to be caught!!!)


I have made a little more progress on getting the junk cleared out of the nursery, got the clothes hung that we have so far, and have about a million other things I meant to do  but didn’t get to this weekend. There is always next week, right?

Linking up with Biana. Hope you all have a fabulous week!!!

    Girl, I am over this heat!! I couldn’t pick a shade either. So hard!! Can’t wait to see the nursery come along though!

    I still love the idea of a cute little blush pink nursery, and I have no idea how you resisted the power of that heart ottoman. Soo cute — I think you need to go back and get it. Thank you so much for coming to Sheffy’s party and for that cheese — B and I devoured the rest of it yesterday.

    Can’t wait for your recipe! And also can’t wait to see what you do with the nursery! I am so nosy and love seeing how people decorate. Happy Monday!

    I think light grey sounds perfect, she can grow with it! Do you have Hobby Lobby? If so, they have the most cute stuff! What’s your new theme?!

    Guac! It’s been too long since I’ve had any! I’m excited for the cheese recipe! Cheese is always a winner in my book.

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph July 25, 2016 at 9:47 am

    I love gray and pink together.

    I say yes to the ottoman and baskets!

    Ahh I can’t wait till the nursery is all together and you post pics, I love baby nurseries!

  • Reply carly July 25, 2016 at 10:41 am

    So random but I had pimento cheese for the first time this weekend! I can only imagine how much fun you had registering and how fun it is to plan a nursery!

    it was hot AF here as well but today and last night we finally got a break. thunderstorms rolled in and gave the grass a much needed watering.

    have fun putting together the nursery! we had a blast doing that 🙂

    Oh my gosh, that ottoman would look SO cute in a nursery! And YES, why in the world do they make so many shades of the same color. #toohard.

  • Reply Rebecca Jo July 25, 2016 at 11:03 am

    YESSS – i need that recipe – that pimento cheese looks AMAZING!
    I always say that when it comes to all things home decorating – why so many decisions? I just want to leave my house for a week & have someone make all the choices for me – preferably someone from HGTV – & let me come back & have it all done.

  • Reply Lara July 25, 2016 at 12:21 pm

    WHY are there so many shades of grey??? Really? I can’t wait to see how it turns out!

  • Reply Mattie @ Northwest Native July 25, 2016 at 12:41 pm

    You NEED that ottoman for baby girl!!! And you and I both need those baskets. I saw them the other day and was trying to figure out where I can use them! Haha.

    The heat is literally killing me this summer! It must have been this hot when we were kids, but why don’t I remember it! It sounds like you had a very productive weekend, and that burrito looks so fantastic! I promise I’m not looking the screen or anything… And hooray for registering! That mint ottoman is so cute, and if that’s the color palette you’re going for I would totally get it!

  • Reply Erin LFF July 25, 2016 at 1:18 pm

    I’m much further north than you and I’m DEF over the heat. Bring on fall, seriously! Excited about that cheese recipe because it looks tasty! I had guac over the weekend too, for the first time in FOREVER- it hit the spot!

  • Reply chelsea jacobs July 25, 2016 at 1:21 pm

    That ottoman is adorable!!

  • Reply Amy @ The Crazy Wise Woman July 25, 2016 at 1:49 pm

    Oh I love the ottomon… you must go back and get it! Grey and blush sounds so pretty and soothing for a nursery, can’t wait to see it all come together!

  • Reply Cara July 25, 2016 at 2:13 pm

    Going with a more neutral color like gray for the wall gives you the flexibility to add in colorful, girly pieces throughout the room in wall decor and bedding etc. But either way would be beautiful. So exciting! & it’s hot as blue blazes here too..lol

  • Reply Amanda Elizabeth - Meet at the Barre July 25, 2016 at 2:31 pm

    I just get the biggest smile on my face hearing you talk about nurseries! You need that heart shaped ottoman and yes seriously when is Fall going to get here?

  • Reply Erika July 25, 2016 at 4:06 pm

    I can’t even imagine how hard it is to pick colors for the nursery! I love that ottoman, so adorable!

  • Reply Emelia July 25, 2016 at 7:47 pm

    I had Mexican on Friday too….YUM! I love the blanket you picked up, so pretty! I can’t wait to see how you decorate it all- So FUN!

  • Reply texerinsydney July 25, 2016 at 11:37 pm

    YES to the ottoman.
    You became fixated on guac, and I see your picture and am fixated on the queso………….

  • Reply Jess July 26, 2016 at 11:34 am

    The weeks seriously fly by. I guess one good thing about our tiny apartment is I don’t have to make any nursery decisions yet. Baby will be in whatever space we can fit her! I love the little ottoman. Target has great baby stuff. I’ve been on Pinterest looking at ways to paint dressers, lately.

  • Reply Teh Megan July 26, 2016 at 12:36 pm

    I’m not even ready to start the painting process. Choices are hard and my inner Lisa Frank interior decorator doesn’t like being repressed.

  • Reply Audrey July 26, 2016 at 9:49 pm

    I’m a horrible blog reader- I had no idea you were expecting! Ahh, I promise I’ll be much better in the future! Adding your site to my favorites tab now! 😉 I love the pup-nickname! We should call our pups after pokemon, haha!!

  • Reply caitlin @ candyfloss & persie July 27, 2016 at 12:52 pm

    oooo, greys, good eats and dogs! Perfect weekend. It’s so NOT HOT in SF, it’s funny! I am forgetting that it’s summer!! Looks like you had a great weekend. I like the Pokemon nickname 🙂

  • Reply Amanda July 27, 2016 at 1:24 pm

    Those colors for paint are pretty! But yes, so annoying how many color options there are.

  • Reply Amy @ Getz Girl on Fire July 27, 2016 at 9:38 pm

    Ha – love Mac’s new nickname – my kids would get it – me, not so much! I say get that nursery stuff done because you won’t feel like it when you get near the end!!!
