Weekend update + bonus recipe!

We meet again, Monday. I won't be missing you this time next week!

So we got another weekend under our belts and it was a fun one, at that! Like I mentioned, Emily came up and spent the weekend in the area.

Before Emily arrived, Mark and I whipped up some fajitas on the grill for dinner on Friday night. Cooking has been rare in the house so far!

After dinner we headed up to our friends house for a game night. It was full of laughs, as usual. While playing Taboo, one of our friends described a ladybug as a 'domed creature' and I could. not. stop. laughing. So fun!

Emily and I got up on Saturday morning and enjoyed breakfast by Mark and then headed down to Aveda. Our friend Jody is going to school there and was giving manicures, so we couldn't turn that down! We hit up Velvet Taco after that with Jody in tow.

Emily requested a stop at a boutique so I obliged and scored some cute mint colored crocheted shorts while Emily picked up a silver necklace.

We both tried those shorts on and they were definitely a no-go. 

We stopped at HomeGoods and Tom Thumb for a few things, then headed home where I made this loaded baked potato dip to take to a housewarming party later that night. 

Here's my simple recipe, found just about anywhere:

-about 3 lbs of sour cream (this was for a large party, I just bought the big tub)
-two bags of shredded cheese
-one package of cooked bacon, crumbled
-two bunches of green onions, chopped

Mix it all together and serve it with potato chips and it's pretty dang good!

Mark, Emily and I then made the drive to Arlington to congratulate our friends Jimmy and Courtney on their new house. They had a great turn out, lots of food, and the perfect yard for lawn games. I saw quite a few of my best high school friends and we played corn hole (also known as bean bags) until the sun went down. We got to hang out and chat for a while and then the old people (us) headed back north around 10:30pm. It was a great night!

Emily headed out on Sunday morning to see some other friends, so Mark and I got back to it with decorating, cleaning, and making changes to the house.

 I love having fresh flowers around!

This was part of my day on Sunday...fabric shopping!

I also hung a few things in my office for inspiration.

Stay tuned this week for more updates, as promised!

One more thing-I'm doing a draft tonight for my very first fantasy football league with other bloggers! Karoline at Karoline with a K is heading up our league and to say I'm excited is an understatement.
