Just Another Manic Monday

I'll give you shortened, condensed version of how my weekend went: (1) because it's not all that exciting, and (2) because I'm crazy busy again this week--both work and personally--so I need to pick it up a notch to make sure I get everything knocked out in time.
Friday Night--cookout with some of Jeff's work friends ended up with be babysitting my dear fiance because he just had to sample a few too many rounds of tequila shots--poor baby! I also made this FANTABULOUS corn dip that I will post the recipe for!!
My Little Grillmaster!
Saturday morning, we got up and headed to run errands all around town...and I am happy to report that we added a brand new coffee table AND throw pillows to our couch/living room--let's see the before and then the after! 
No Couch or Table
  
Bring On My Couch
And Introducing Our New Coffee Table and Sofa Pillows
Now that we are slowly but surely getting the furniture, we are going to start looking at accent pieces and art for the walls--can't wait to make it finally feel like a living room!
Saturday night, we headed to my parent's new house since they had just finished moving in...they did a great job picking out paint colors and the new furniture looks incredible, but my Mom would kill me if I showed pics before it was done so that'll come soon!
As for Sunday, I spent practically all day working on calligraphy...my hand felt like it was going to fall off, but I made a lot of progress
Last night, we met our friends Andy and Lauren {sorry darling, can't tag you here--hehe} for dinner at our favorite Mexican establishment and then headed to the movies to see Inception. So for my personal preference, was it as good as everyone made it out to be? No--but these are the reasons why: (1) it was FOREVER long, and (2) confusing as all get out. Now don't get me wrong--it was a great movie, but you definitely need to be ready to think and not just sit back and get entertained...VERY thought provoking!
Alright, back to work--Happy Monday friends!
