Wonderful Weekend

This weekend was the kind I crave. Laid-back and fun.

Friday night, my cousin Kirbie and her hubby Dave were house guests as they were in town for a Marine ball (Dave's a Marine). They brought us the most beautiful bouquet of flowers. We all stayed up late talking and I loved having them at our home.

Saturday morning while Dave had drill, Kirbie and I hit a local thrift store and my personal favorite...the Dollar Tree. I love that store and it always makes the secret hoarder in me come out. Why yes, I needed a $1 bird warbler whistle. 

After our guests left, we spent Saturday afternoon doing some yard work. I think we raked not only our leaves but those of at least two neighbors. Dang wind!

Saturday night we headed to a hip, vintage part of town to a restaurant we'd never tried called Espana. They only serve tapas. We met my friend Kari and her friend Paul. The food, sangria and company was perfection. I think we nearly closed the place down.
Saturday night outfit. Skinnies, boots, fur vest, crepe blouse, bubble necklace, layered bracelets.

No perfect weekend is complete without a Sunday Funday. I started the morning off with chocolate chip pancakes, coffee and the Sunday paper. Scott and I spent the rest of the day at the mall, where I found two super-cheap bargains at Old Navy.

Delish Panera Greek salad at the mall.

Orange sleeveless blouse from Old Navy | $3.97

When we got home, Scott hit the gym and I made a big pot of chili. Delish!

As much as I love the weekend, I'm ready to take on the work week. I hope you all have a great Monday tomorrow.
