Weekending: Monday Morning Gossip



Good morning!  I'm excited to be co-hosting the Monday Morning Gossip link up with Leeann and Kimberly, thanks so much for having me!  Be sure to link up with us this morning!

We had a good weekend, it was the perfect balance of relaxation/fun/accomplishing stuff on our (never ending) to do list.

Friday night was all about painting our master bedroom.  Finally!  Goodbye purple walls!  We put one coat up and then due to the fumes, had a family sleep over in the living room in front of the fireplace.  Check that off the Christmas bucket list :)



On Saturday, we did our second coat of paint and are sooo happy with how it turned out!  The color is Cedar Key by Benjamin Moore.  Love.  Now to get on with furnishing and decorating the rest of the room - aka the fun stuff!


Later that night, we headed to a friends house for a steak dinner.  Everyone brought their dogs so it turned into a fun little puppy play date.  Although none of the other pups were too fond of Brady, he was a bit energetic for them ;) They mostly growled if he even looked at them but he still had the best time!  He's such a happy guy - and we were pretty happy that the night wore him out and he slept in until 10am on Sunday.


I had also whipped up a batch of the Pioneer Woman's peppermint fudge that I had mentioned on Friday for my dinner contribution and it did not disappoint.  This was all that was left and everyone was requesting the recipe!


Sunday was reserved for a lazy day - besides locking ourselves out of the house while on a walk with Brady.  We ordered pizza, watched Dexter (our most recent Netflix obsession), tried out a new church and checked out the Christmas lights around town.  The perfect ending to a great weekend!


And speaking of Christmas... only 10 days to go!  I hope you'll join us tomorrow for our third and final - sad face - holiday link up.  It's our Christmas edition so be sure to join in on the fun!  I'll be sharing some of my favorite traditions :)  See ya tomorrow!


Linking up with LeeannBellaCarlyBiana and Ashley

  11. I know this post is about wall color/weekending-y stuff, but I have to say - I love the color of the hardwood in your living room! Is it pine? Or a stain? I want that color in my home! And that sleep over situation looks magical :)

  13. ahh I love the way the master bedroom turned out!! It's so calm and serene now, just the way it's supposed to be!! I have so much catching up to do in the blog world as I have been so out of tune, so I need to go back a few posts and see if I've missed any other house updates :) I love how charming your little temporary bedroom looked by the fireplace too!! It's fun to camp out sometimes !

  17. I'm in love with your wall color! Great choice girl. Puppy play dates are the best. The picture with everyone holding their furbabies is super adorable! I'm beginning to discover, everyone enjoys sleeping in the living room when it's decorated for Christmas. There is something so comforting about it. :) Sounds like you had a great weekend, and I hope you have an even better Monday!
