Weekend Update

I bet you guys think I’m going to spam your innocent little blog-reading eyes with an update from last night’s Walking Dead mid-season premiere, huh.

walking-dead

Well you’d be wrong my friends! Wrong, for a number of reasons. The first being- hey, homie don’t play that “spoilers” game. And the second being I’m still not sure how I feel about it?

Don’t get me wrong- I love the show. It’s always good.

Even when it isn’t.

Mostly, I didn’t love the story lines they focused on in last night’s episode. I have a list of favorite characters, and you guys all know what happened to my number 1 at the end of the mid-season finale. (It’s still so fresh.)

But I have a list of other favorites, and not a single one was shown or even mentioned last night. I’m still stressed out because I don’t know what’s happened to any of them! All we got last night was a whiney Carl (surprise, surprise) and a Michonne mental collapse (big woop).

Okay- done complaining. Moving on!

Happy Monday! Is everyone ready to get back on track for this coming week?

I’ll tell you what, the one thing I’m probably most excited about this week (besides Valentine’s Day, which despite it being a completely commercial holiday, I still love it) is the fact that we’re going to get a weather warm up round these parts!

WOOOO!

In the course of one week, it’s going to go from a high of 28 to a wopping high of 62.

Kansas, folks. You don’t like the weather, wait ten minutes.

Apart from that excitement, Shane and I actually got some big stuff done this weekend.

We chose our apartment (finally!) and we’ll be taking our application and down payment in there this evening.

We also chose our bedding and some bathroom stuff for the apartment, and put it on our registry.

The pattern we chose is called ‘Glass Block’, and I am obsessed with it!

The cool taupe, green, grey and blue is so calming and it’s exactly what I had envisioned for a master bedroom. We also registered for some amazing European sham pillows that I LOVE!

Can you tell I’m excited?

Then, on Sunday, we ventured out into the snow in search of some furniture. We didn’t find the type of couch or chairs we were looking for, but we did *shockingly) find a bed frame that both her and I fell in love with.

It’s called the Southport, and we found it at Haverty’s.

It comes in both distressed white,  and also a gorgeous distressed pine finish- seen above.

We chose pine, because we both wanted brown wood.

Plus, if you can tell in the bedding photo above, our BB and B bedding is going to look so gorgeous against the distressed pine finish!

I’m so pleased that Shane and I seem to be (at least on the big stuff) on the exact same page for our furniture- we really want an old-meets-new, refinished vibe and so the wood on that bed was perfect- and the detail in the frame is gorgeous.

One piece down, about 6 more to go!

Also exciting- over the weekend, I got a package….of water bottles!

Yes! I got a package of pink polycarbonate, ½ gallon water bottles and I am OBSESSED.

Do you guys even know how much of a hassle it was to try and drink a gallon of water a day in 16oz increments?

Do you? (And yes, that is The Walking Dead on the tv in the background)

These little beauties are going to make my life so much easier. Plus they’re pink.

Rock on.

Alright kiddos, the gym is calling my name- and then I have to get to that apartment before it closes for the day! I’m hoping to have a new workout for you all later on this week, so keep an eye out for that.

Have a great night!
