Weekend Update

Happy Monday? Sorry but that's about as enthusiastic as I can get after such a nice, relaxing weekend... On Friday night, the hubs & I headed out to dinner with my grandparents and kept it pretty low key. We were both up bright and early on Saturday. I headed to a few yard sales & Sleepy Poet with friends, and Jeff headed up to Raleigh for a Masonboro Boys show.

Saturday night we had a little girls get-together at Big Daddy's Burger Bar. I hadn't been before, and it was amazing! We were fortunate enough to have a pretty short wait, even though the place was packed, and get a table outside. I tried out the Cantina 1511 black bean burger (sans green chiles), and it did not disappoint! Can't wait to go back with Jeff (I did have a little new restaurant guilt, since we'd been eyeing this one to try for some time, but it's a definitely one to repeat!)

On Sunday I was pleasantly surprised when there was hardly any grumbling once Jeff came home to my yard sale finds...

First up is this outdoor light:
To (potentially, once I can get Jeff on board) replace this light fixture in our kitchen...

Similar to these ideas via The Newlywed Diaries...

I also rounded up this beverage cart from my dad's shed (after a heart-breaking decision not to get one that looked exactly like this one from Lonny for $70 at Sleepy Poet... I reversed that decision around 4 pm on Saturday, but it was too late... already sold!)

Despite the heartbreak, I love having one that my grandparents owned, and think the size fits nicely in our small dining area.

Obviously, there is still a lot of 'styling' left to be done, and I'm debating spray painting it a pretty brass color... Thoughts?

  2. There is nothing like getting a good spot in a trendy resto and tasting some of their delectable dishes! But it is the same as decorating and revamping your home! And that is a good choice for your outdoor lights. It looks classy and elegant. It would surely make your home exterior look nice.
