Fun Times and ER visits

Weekends pass by SOOO MUCH faster than normal when you have company! Austin and I had such a great time with Jenn and Hal :) (As usual!)

Our time together however, started off a little rocky. They got to our house Friday night and Hal's ear had been bothering him. By 2am Saturday morning, it was so unbearable, he and Jenn payed a visit to the ER here. So two hours and a severe middle ear infection later...they were back and we all got back to bed!! Saturday the boys were supposed to go golfing, but Hal's ear was still bothering him....not to mention the medicine they had him on had him "floating on Tinkerbells" lol. Needless to say, they did NOT go golfing. But Jenn and I DID get pedicures and go shopping for cutie outfits for baby Halle!! :) Ahhh, there's nothing like the combination of pretty toes and spending money to make a girl feel good! ;) Meanwhile Austin and Hal napped the afternoon away.

That night we all dressed up a bit and went to Kobes Japenese Steakhouse for dinner. YUM! We all ate way more than our stomach's could hold, but oh was it SOOO good! Afterwards, we decided to keep the party going and headed to the movies and saw Obsessed. Beyonce' kicked some booty in that one! The boys just LOVED that movie, lol. We stayed out until we couldn't keep our eyes open....which was around 10:00. (Hey, that's late for us! lol)

This morning, we had brunch at good 'ol Cracker Barrell and then sent Jenn and Hal on their way :(

This weekend was fulfilling in every way!! Next time, it's our turn to stay at Hotel Keene!! :)

Needed a little somethin'

My hair that is. As an "almost hairdresser" I am constantly getting bored with my hair. A few months ago I went "dark"-

Now that Spring is here, it's time for a little bit of blonde. I think this was just what it needed-

Very natural, but noticeable :)

That sums up my weekend. Friday was Austin's birthday. His parents and brother came and stayed the weekend with us to celebrate. We had a great time! We spent Saturday in Orlando. We went to the outlets and went to my FAVORITE store, Ikea. I could stay in that store ALL DAY! lol. We met up with my family for dinner and then headed back to Tampa. Whew!

I got the "design bug" when we were at Ikea, and this is what happened:

Truth be told, I've had this idea in my head for AWHILE, I just haven't done anything about it. Obviously it isn't finished, there will be some candles and random little knick-nacks arranged as well, but you get the idea!
What do you think??
