Weekend In Review: Party Party Party & My Bridal Shower

I had the best weekend!  In fact, I must have been so sad to see it go that yesterday afternoon while walking out the front door of our office, I called over my shoulder to our security guard "Have a great weekend!"

Ummm... it was only Monday at 5pm.  We still had 4 more full workdays to go.  Where was my mind?!

Anyway, here's a little recap of my weekend:

Friday Ian and I had a much-needed low key evening.  We met our realtor at our new home and took some measurements for furniture shopping.  We headed to the mall (which is about .5 miles from our new house!) and hit up Pottery Barn.  We were in there for only about five minutes before we decided the sofas there weren't what we were looking for.  That night we made Greek salads and oven pizza and shared a bottle of red.  Perfect.

Saturday Ian and I drove an hour down the road to the furniture mecca of Hickory, NC.  Went to a few furniture stores, struck out.  More furniture shopping in Charlotte and finally we fell in love with a sofa and 2 chairs from West Elm.  Score!

That night my friend Kerry drove to town and we went to a friend's 30th birthday party.  We had a blast.  Kerry stayed with us at the condo and then woke up early the next morning to drive back to Greenville and host a bridal shower for me along with our friend Ashley.  Yep, amazing right?

Sunday I drove to Greenville with a few girlfriends for the shower and it was just lovely.  Kerry's condo was looking beautiful and she had the best drinks.  Try this one on for size: champagne with lavender-infused simple syrup.  Ahhhhhh-mazing.  Kerry, please do send me the recipe and I'll post it on the blog?

    I've been stalking out home goods looking for a beehive. I think they are so classy for a fun party, instead of the boring ones!

    champagne with lavender-infused simple syrup -- send me the recipe or I'll google. I may do that for Easter!
