A Few Friday Things

Some things going on around here this week / weekend:

We're having my family (aunts, uncle, grandpa, mom, dad, sister...) over for lunch on Sunday to celebrate my Grandfather's 85th birthday! My Grandpa is one of the coolest person I know. He is so fun, positive, active (he swims 45 minutes everyday, outgoing and happy-go-lucky. I honestly believe that is the key to living a long life! 

Ibought a new throw pillow for our couch. The couch was looking pretty drab after the Christmas pillows went back into storage and I finally found one I really like at HomeGoods. Its also fitting with my new "blue" accent color / theme in the living room.

I've been talking about getting a chair for the corner in our living room next to the fireplace for a while and I am thisclose to finally buying one. I've got my eye on this one from Pier 1, but I'll have to see it in person to know for sure. Putting it on the to do list for MLK day.

This picture is a terrible end of the night, end of the week picture of me (in my PJs no less!), but I wanted to show you a "before" picture of my hair, because tomorrow I will be cutting it and coloring it! My hair isn't super long, but its long for me, and with the wedding being over I can now justify cutting it into something short and cute again.The Mr. is still trying to get me to keep it long, sorry babe! 

 On New Year's day we bought this neat table thing for our room and I've finally found pictures to hang above it. I guess iI'm really into blue this month, huh? I like how the prints are opposites, but still manage to satisfy my need for symmetry. I hung them super quick before heading out tonight for a work thing. I think they look pretty straight. I also bought that big vase thing this week at HomeGoods.

Anyway, just a few random things I wanted to share. I hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Kendall- You have that chair? Maybe I like it because it seems familiar from your blog? :) Its so classic, I just can't wait to see it in person.
