I had a weekend full of photos, if you follow me on IG (@lenaridley) you would see that I was kind of a serial picture poster.
what a sweet little face he has <3
Saturday morning started with snuggles with my little sweet potato Frankie. Joe had to work so I was up at the butt crack of dawn (5:45) and wasn't really able to go back to sleep so we went from the bed to the couch & relaxed & watched TV for a few hours in the morning before my mom picked me up for our normal Saturday routine of grocery shopping & lunch.
seriously how awesome are these pillows!?
We decided to hit Target to get stocking stuffer shopping done & of course Target came through again as always in their dollar section with some adorable Christmas decorum. These pillows were $3 and the signs were $1. So cute, can’t wait to decorate on Friday!
so in love with this sweater in mint!
Saturday night we went out with some friends for dinner then came back to our house for a couple rounds of Liars Dice. I got my mint version of the Emily Maynard sweater in the mail this week from Apricot Lane. I ordered it back in August so I was pretty pumped when it came in this week. So in love with it, it’s so warm & comfortable, I wore it with leggings and I seriously felt like I was pajamas with a cozy robe on.
Sunday morning I found this perfect quote for what’s been going on in life as of late. Things have never really come easy for me or Joe, it seems like we constantly have a streak of bad luck, or an obstacle in the way of whatever it is that we’re trying to achieve, but I swear it has made us so much stronger in the long run. Now we're just counting down the days!!
While perusing the interwebs Sunday morning & catching up on the DVR I sipped Glazed Chocolate Donut coffee out of my adorable new Cantina Mugs from CB2 (thanks to Stephanie @ Newlyweds North for sharing these on her blog last week). They’re so cute & only about $4 a cup! I had to have them!
LOVE my new table!!
And last but not least, what I waited all weekend for, my BRAND NEW dining room table! It’s so perfect & gorgeous! It’s one of our only pieces of furniture that isn't a handmedown or something that we grew up with. I consider it to be our first official piece of nice furniture for our future home. We took a quick trip up to Pier 1 in Joliet to pick it up, I also bought those amazing mercury glass candle sticks that I’m using for a center piece. I can’t wait to add some fresh greens from the tree farm this weekend. Definitely need a table runner of some sort too.
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!!
