This weekend I... [10.22.12]

Hey friends! Linking up with Sar and Syndal again! :)

This weekend I celebrated boyfriend's birthday quietly, watching Holiday Inn Friday night, letting him watch football all day Saturday (his actual birthday) while I went to a wedding, then coming home just in time to see the Beavers get another W Saturday night.

This weekend I went to my friend's wedding, driving four hours in the process (2.25 hours each way). But oh, it was gorgeous! And look at these centerpieces/favors! Cowbells!
You might also notice the bride's cousin in the background. She's a blur of waving cowbells.

I also got to see Katie, my former roommate, at the wedding. 

This weekend I got to see the most beautiful sunset as I drove home from the wedding.

This weekend I cringed and hid while Pat chased this bug around our room. I'm not scared of bugs typically, but he kept landing on our bed, where I thought I would squash him, or landing on the wall right behind my head, where I feared he would fall into my hair. Pat made friends with him and named him Cal.

This weekend I started a new DIY project. Here's a sneak peek!

My weekend was a blur! My whole Saturday was dominated by getting ready for/driving to and from/attending the wedding, but it was well worth it to see my friend marry her best friend!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

1) You are SLAMMIN' in that dress at the wedding, Abbey!
2) Can't wait to see the finished DIY project! Love that song.
3) Cowbells?! Bwaaahahaha adorable, although I bet it was crazy annoying at the wedding.

Happy Monday!

Those sunsets are breathtaking!

Katie said...

You are so pretty! Your project is amazing. Oh and the bug, in the hair? That's a no-no. I think I can handle bugs okay (unless they're deadly spiders) unless they get in my hair!

Brianne said...

Love the centerpiece!

Bugs... EW! I hate when I find any in the bedroom... that's about the only time I freak out! The cowbells are an awesome touch! And you are so sweet to let him relax all day! My bf's birthday is next Saturday. I think we're just going out to dinner with a few friends.

Kate said...

I'm totally in love with your dress in that picture!
And I love when I find out that I'm not the only one that names everything. Michael once had a huge spider outside his apartment that we named Larry. We still talk about him quite often. Hope Cal made it out ok! :P

AH! I can't wait to see the end result of that project! Also, I think I need a little more cowbell. :)

Hi there! This is Jackie, the Mary Kay consultant from Gentri Lee's blog. I saw you commented about the lash and brow building serum, and I just wanted to let you know a bit more about it.

I am running a special! If you jump on my website and order it with a mascara of your choice I will give you the mascara half off! Just mention this post! You also get the gift with purchase, which is a mini satin hands set! IT's a steal!

I have asked specifically about the safety of this product. I have spoken with medical relations at Mary Kay Corporate, as well as Dr. Mark Barlow, a board certified plastic surgeon who knows the Mary Kay product line backwards and forwards.

Dr. Barlow and MK corp. told me that because it's not a prescription or over the counter drug, but a cosmetic item, it is as safe to use as a lipstick. (And muuuuuch cheaper!)

Also, it shouldn't effect your eye color at all, all it does is make your lashes and brows grow longer (not darker, which is what effect the color.)

Anyway, if you are interested Mary Kay always has a money back guarantee, so try it out and if you don't like it I will take care ofyou!
Let me know if you have questions!

Sara said...

Also, you are rocking that dress - super cute!

I'm way excited to see where this new DIY project goes - I'm already LOVING it... you're totally hitting the crafting bug in me [and his name is not Cal].

Syndal said...
