Houses and Surprises

Hi Everyone!! I hope y'all had an amazing holiday weekend celebrating our Nation's birthday!

By the actual 4th of July, I was exhausted! Saturday was spent at my sister's new house painting, hanging ceiling fans and helping my dad hang a garage door opener.  We were so busy with things that I forgot to take a picture of the housewarming gift I made for Jess and Doug AND any inside pictures.  I'm afraid the only photo I have to share is of the outside...which is very pretty...

On Sunday, J and I went by the house that we are under contract on...I was hoping we could peak inside.  We walked the perimeter to check out how much fencing would be needed to enclose the backyard. J looked in through the back window and said there was still furniture inside the house. AWKWARD.  I'm sure we looked more than a little suspicious so we high-tailed it out of there! Not before taking a pretty picture of the outside though!

We made our way to our friend's house where our group threw a surprise reception for our sweet friends who were married June 27 -- that same girl we had thrown the bachelorette party for =) It was a true backyard reception; cake, first dance, sign in, group shot and alcohol. =)
   
 


We didn't hang out on the beach or lake, nor did we grill out.  We spent the Fourth of July with one another, laying low and recovering from our weekend.  I know it wasn't very festive of us, but it was perfect. I love spending one on one time with my amazing and sweet husband. Once the sun went down, tons of people in our neighborhood and the surrounding areas were setting off expensive fireworks, so we made our way to the driveway where we watched a Fourth of July celebration. It was a perfect weekend with my husband.

I don't anticipate hearing anything back about the house this week so hopefully the week flies by and we are able to keep ourselves busy so we don't think about it too much haha =)

What did you do this weekend???
