Weekend Update

Hi Friends and Happy Tuesday! I'm so sorry this is a day late. We had a rather hectic weekend and I am headed to NYC as I type. Thank you, go-go in-flight internet! :)

The Husband had to go into the office mostly all weekend which you can imagine didn't make me happy so I did what any wife would do...I shopped, decorated for Christmas, rearranged furniture, addressed Christmas cards and mailed them, mani/pedi, ordered take out, etc., etc.  It ended up being a rather productive weekend for me, which is good since I'm traveling the rest of the week.

Here's a glimpse of the weekend a la iphone pics. Enjoy!

Friday night we grabbed a late dinner at our fave local pizza joint. You know me, I had the gluten free thai chicken personal. It was so good!

Since The Husband was working and I wanted to get a Christmas tree, I found a local business that will deliver Christmas trees. How cool is that?!? A special thanks to my neighbors who offered a helping hand getting it inside. Here's a quick pic I took before The Husband put the star on top. Shorty here couldn't quite reach! :)

Better pics to come...

For the last five years, I've made our Christmas wreath. I think it's sort of my "thing." This year I intended to buy one but couldn't find one that was the size I wanted. Plus, I really enjoy making my own. I like my wreaths look less structured that what you find in the stores and I like for them to be made from real greenery. In years past, I just kept it simple and only added decorative berries around the finished product. However, this year, with the help of my sweet Dad, I added this beautiful custom monogram. I wasn't sure how it would look or if it would fit but I am so happy with how it turned out! It looks exactly the way I envisioned it in my head.

This isn't the greatest pic and definitely doesn't do it justice. 
I snapped it just before heading out the door this morning.

Saturday was a great mail day. I received this little surprise...

Y'all know how much I love Bath and Body Works. My first thought was...hmmm, I didn't order anything from them. They sent sweet treats inspired by their favorite seasonal scents to their "best" customers. I had no idea I was classified as one of their "best" customers but hey, I'll take it! It was a welcomed surprise! Did anyone else receive these delightful bite-fulls? 

Sunday I did a little more shopping. I found these awesome nesting tables. I want them so bad!

I also scored some new lamps for our nightstands. Yay for sales!  

Well, that's pretty much it! Short yet productive. 
What did you do this weekend? Do you do a real or artificial tree?

I hope to have more Christmas decor pics next week along with a super easy Christmas DIY. Stay tuned! Here's wishing you all a great week!

I'm linking up with Join the Gossip, five30three and Sami's Shenanigans for the Weekend Update. Be sure to hop on over and catch up on everyone's weekend! 


  1. You did a great job on that wreath, Sara! I LOVE it!

  2. You had a very productive weekend!! I need you to fly to SA and help me! We also get a real tree. Mine is sitting undecorated in our living room just waiting for some attention. Maybe tonight? I love your wreath with the monogram in the middle! It looks perfect! I love those nesting tables too! Where did you find them?

    Hope you have a great flight and are able to actually have some fun this go-around in NYC!

  3. I'm obsessed with the wreath! So cute!!!

  4. Sounds productive indeed! Your wreath is beautiful, and of course, now I want one!:) As well as a piece of that pizza;)
