Weekend Recap: peeps, hats & artwork!

Hi Loves,


Happy Monday! Again another weekend has come and gone way too quickly. I realized that it’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve done a weekend recap and I’ve missed them. So here we go again!


Saturday night we had a surprise 30th Birthday party to go to! It was a crazy hat party, which meant we needed to go out and gather supplies. After dropping $15 at our local dollar tree we were in business.


I decided to go with a spring time theme and picked up peeps, a cowboy hat as my base and butterfly wings.



I wanted to dangle something from the wings, but I couldn’t find anything in time.


Jon’s hat was a HUGE hit! He went with an army hat, army men, planes and night vision!


He had a great time getting the planes to fly and setting up all the army men so it looked like the dark green guys were against the little green guys.


Sunday was spent getting up bright and early, heading to the diner for breakfast, taking the pups to a state park for a long walk and a project of course!


Our basic half bath on our first floor got a bit of a re-vamp when we first moved in. Beadboard walls went up, a fresh coat of paint on trim and a tin ceiling was added. It stayed as is for a while.


Jon thought I was “finished” with it. Ah poor, stupid man. I’m never finished. I had slowly been collecting artwork to go into the space. This Sunday I made some headway with the project!


Sneak peek of bath:


I still need to get some more accessories, fill in some blank frames on the walls and update the window treatment. So a full blown reveal will have to wait a little bit, but I was dying to share.


Sunday night I had a massive breakdown due to web design. Ah it’s all so stressful. I’m the kind of person that wants something done yesterday so have this whole process take so long makes me want to pull my hair out. Last night I practically did that while scaring my poor husband with a way ugly cry. Not my proudest moment.


What talked me off the ledge?


Wouldn’t it be amazing if I said Jon bought me a plane! Ah close second he purchased some tickets for a little get-away. We leave this Friday and I get to spend my weekend with TWO bloggers!


How did you spend your weekend?


Any guesses on where I’m going this weekend and who I’m going to see?

I'm sorry to hear you are still have issues with your website... my advice is to take just a couple elements you love and leave the rest simple and clean. My website consists of my green burlap background, light blue and dark blue (same as on my blog). And that's it! Simple yet "me". Hope things get better for you. Aren't you working with Front Porch Studio (saw on Twitter). You're in great hands! Good luck!!

Hmmm...who are you visiting?? They must be pretty fun to be worthy of a trip ;)

p.s. We'll need to discuss the bathroom - mine is VERY similar to yours, beadboard and all, and I'm struggling with it...
