Weekending ~ June 7

Wednesday, June 11, 2014
One of these days I am going to get better at posting weekend updates...aka posting before Wednesday of the following week ;)

This weekend was a fun one! But it was so jam-packed, I felt like I didn't really have any time to relax. I thought I might be able to catch up on sleep this coming weekend... but I got the text at 4:00 am this morning that Abby is in labor! So this weekend will be spent up in Akron seeing my new baby niece :)) I'm BEYOND excited!! Living 2 hours away from everyone doesn't bother me on a day-to-day basis...but it's times like this where it makes me sad that I can't be there right now while she's in the hospital :(

Anywhoo...here's a quick photo dump from this past weekend...

Broccoli Cauliflower Bacon Salad I made for a cook-out we went to on Saturday. This is one of my mum's recipes and I always used to love it growing up. Only change I made...double the amount of bacon she used to use ;)

Picked up this maxi dress from Old Navy off the clearance rack for $19! They only had one left and it was an xs - perfect! It was meant to be ;)

And excuse the ridiculous mirror situation...we don't have anywhere to hang a full length mirror in our master bedroom - thanks to vaulted attic ceilings...so I have to work with what I've got.

 Loved spending time with our fabulous friends at the cook-out on Saturday! Delicious food, lots of drinks, and great company! We have lots of fun things planned for this summer, which our friend Lisa has dubbed "The Summer of Fun"! 

Sunday morning was spent at Aaron's baseball game. It was their first loss of the season, but they played pretty well - the team they were up against was just tough! The field was really nice though, almost minor league status, and I know all the guys enjoyed playing on it.

And this little miss decided to use Michael Kors as a pillow while I was getting ready the other day...why do cats always do this right before you need to get up?

Hope you all had lovely weekends! Gotta go catch up on all of your weekend posts now and see what you were up to! xx
