Weekend Happenings {Sunsets, Babies & Gardening}

My weekend flew by. I don't know about you, but I could have used one more day! However, sadly today it's pouring rain {and trying to snow}.

I might have cheated on my diet again on Friday, but once ever so often isn't bad -- right? After work I met up with some friends at Brooks Bar at Edgewood Tahoe for drinks, appetizers and this amazing sunset!

After Brooks we headed to Apres Wine Company for a another glass of wine and this deliciousness.... strawberry burchetta. I'm still dreaming about it.

Well, we didn't stop there... Next stop was Nepheles for one last drink. This picture pretty much sums up the night.

Saturday morning I woke up bright and early {picked up my car} and made my way down to San Francisco for my good friend Jenn's baby Shower {she's due June12}. We've been friends since college and she was even one of my bridesmaids last August!

Sunday we did a little gardening...

...and I finally planted my mini succulents. I used an antique bowl from the hubby's grandparents farm in Minnesota. Now I just need to add some small pebbles on top of the dirt {maybe another succulent} and ta-da.

N also finished up this bad boy the other week. We picked up this 50s Broyhill dresser and gave it a much needed face lift -- think good sanding, fresh coat of walnut stain and tongue oil. The pulls and knobs were sprayed with a valspar {for metals} satin nickle finish. Oh and the best part we only paid $15 for the dresser and already had everything needed to spruce it up. Double Win!


  1. Looks like you ladies had fun, totally worth the cheat :)

    I have no plants at my place. I should get succulents at least because they are easy to manage right? And the sunset picture is so pretty!

    Thanks for linking up!

    1. I agree... plus you can't eat healthy all the time ;) Yes, succulents are super easy to manage -- but you can kill them if you over water.

  2. Love your plants. I'm putting my annuals in the ground this weekend.

    1. What type of annuals do you plant? Hopefully this weekend we can plant our veggie garden!
