Spring Cleaning Switcharoo

Hello there, darlings, how are you today? I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready to face the week. I had a wonderful, busy weaken and am ready to rock this Monday out. 

This weekend I. . .

… enjoyed an amazing celebratory feast with my fabulous friend, D, on Friday night. I've known her since I was nine and we've stayed friends all these years. She was part of my wedding ceremony and was instrumental in my bridal shower, too. We love finding yummy restaurants and she's an even bigger foodie than me. She suggested hitting up Green Pig Bistro and it was a divine dinner with some awesome company. And guess what, I didn't get too sick, woohooo!!
Pictures are a lil backwards, but L - R: Pear crumble with cinnamon ice-cream and hazelnuts; yummy wine after  a delicious fig&vanilla Manhattan, amazing cornbread and bison meatballs. We shared chicken&biscuts for our meal, but I did't take a picture. Every calorie was worth it!!
… wore a fun new outfit courtesy of Loft, Target and KS. 

… decided Saturday morning that it was time to do some spring cleaning. Which somehow turned into completely rearranging our kitchen and part of our living room. Cheers to starting the spring with a new, clean layout. 

… ran errands and dropped my car of for an oil change and inspection. Sassy runs so much better now.

… drove out to visit a dear friend from high school and her precious lil baby girl. It was so wonderful catching up after way too long and just hanging out with this precious lil one. Their home is Pinterest perfect and she actually had a bunch of things in her home I have pinned which was awesome to see in real life. We had a great time, some wine [!], healthy snacks and lots of fun with her sweet daughter.

… came home and ate dinner with Le Husband then fell asleep watching basketball. 

… woke up a lil late, but still made it to Palm Sunday service. I love starting the week with praise, which of course is followed by passion as we enter Holy Week. 


… ate a delicious breakfast cooked by Le Husband. Our first meal in our new lil nook. 

… placed the final touches on our new corner. So happy to have our new canvases up!

… took a glorious nap during the Caps game. Even though I didn't get sick from my celebratory meal, I can tell my food has changed because I've felt so sluggish over the weekend. Back at it on Monday.

… did a test run for Easter lunch on Sunday. #sotasty #Lehusbandissocool

… prepped my lunch for Monday and got a head start on snacks, too.

… put the finishing touches on our buffet that is now in the kitchen and not the living room. I loved where it was previously but this change has already grown on me. We also finally hung our last name letters which look amazing above the buffet.

… felt so happy with our newly rearranged kitchen. Everything is so organized and I love our shelves. Le Husband is going to build a new island for some extra space and I can't wait to see how it all comes together.

… played in a 9pm soccer game and scored two goals. #hollaataballa

Doesn't it feel good to have a little Spring Cleaning done? I have yet to done mine and probably wont until after we move in April. Also, how about sharing some of your eats that your eating. I always get so tired of "the same stuff".

You've got me in the mood for some spring cleaning after reading this! I love a new layout too...those may be my projects for next weekend now!

Your storage makes me so happy! I organized my little bit of closet space by color this weekend and took all of my heavier pieces out to make more room for my lighter pieces to breathe. I think they really appreciated it ;-)

Brianne said...

Congrats on the goals during the soccer game! The whole breakfast looks good but when I saw it I immediately said "mmm bacon!" Maybe I should've bought some yesterday...

Erin LFF said...

You rocked it this weekend girl! So much accomplished and plenty of time for fun and friends too! :) That breakfast looks tasty but I love the plate it's on even more- hehe, adorable!

I got a burst of energy last night and scrubbed our baseboards.. whoo hoo! Love your canvas'! I have really enjoyed ours too! I know nothing about soccer but yay for scoring two goals! Love your #! ;)

Christina Sotherden said...

I’m glad you enjoyed your feast; you so deserved it!! I bet you feel so much better after the big spring clean! I need to do that this weekend, especially get our closets in shape for the warmer (hopefully soon) weather! Palm Sunday is always one of my favorites, I was bummed to be away and miss it but even more excited for Easter service now!

Amanda {Kids and Cabernet} said...

This is the PERFECT weekend! Love all of the little corners of your house. You're making me want to go on an organizing spree!!

Rebecca Jo said...

I love Holy Week!!!!

You are so good at getting snacks prepped. I put thing in Tupperware & I totally forget they exist... sigh....

That cornbread with all that butter...mmmm....

Katie Elizabeth said...

I normally hate cleaning but there is something so rejuvenating about SPRING cleaning! Now bring on the warmer weather! And whatever that deliciousness is that you're making for Easter - yummmmmmy!

Kristen said...

i am super in love with that buffet, and the letters above - so awesome. i am hoping maybe to do a big spring clean this weekend, we'll see. i love that your husband is going to build you an island, so awesome!

Jessica said...

Sometimes just a few little changes make a big difference! When we moved our couch in our living room out from in front of the window, it opened up the whole room!:) So glad you guys are liking your new arrangement! And girl, you are making me want to shop bad!!! I can't wait to pick up a few spring things after the baby arrives:)
