Snippets from the weekend.











It was an action packed few days: finalizing some details on decorating a dear friend's home, house projects of our own (pics to come), a trip to the zoo, an afternoon in the park, Lindsey's yummy snow cones, a family get together starting with The Barefoot Contessa's Goat Cheese Tomato Tarts, and ending with Giada's Orange Raspberry cake (thanks, Shannan!).

My living room is filled with hot pink flowers, and I couldn't be more exhausted.

The mister instructed me to "go lie down or I'm going to punch you", as he did all of the dishes.


Life is good.
Hope you had a lovely weekend!
