{InstaLOVE} Weekend Recap

The weather here in East TN was more than beautiful this past weekend! Even though Skye was sleeping his days away (he's on night shift right now), I was able to get out to have a little fun AND be productive. It was my little cousin's 9th birthday party Saturday so I was able to spend time with my family and then Saturday night I went to a bonfire with my brother and his friends. The weather was just perfect for sitting by a fire that night! Yesterday I got to catch up with one of my very best friends over Diet Cherry Limeades. Win! Plus, I managed to get a fair amount of wedding planning ideas in my cute new wedding planning book. And I cooked a fab dinner last night and cleaned my house. However, I did not manage to squeeze in any workouts this weekend so gotta make up for that this week. I'm not wonder woman and I can't do it all in one weekend!

If some of these pictures look funny, that's because I also got the bright idea to edit them in Picasa and with my new FAVORITE iPhone app PicStitch! :)
Here is a recap for you of my weekend {in pictures of course!}

My wonderful Aunt and I at lil cousin's birthday party - she really is like a mama to me! Plus, I look more like her than either of my parents haha

My honey woke up after only 4 hours of sleep to attend the birthday party. Love him!

aww love! if he looks tired that's because he is!

My sweet birthday girl blowing out the candles on her homemade cake. Her best friend made it for her - how sweet!
I heart animal prints! Top: F21, Sandals: old navy

Potential Wedding Venue #2 - Magnolia Manor, so very Southern. I feel like we would need some mint juleps here!

Sunday Dinner - steak, homemade green beans, corn and Diet Coke! Healthy & delicious! I sent my man off to work with a full tummy!

Things I have to look forward to this week-
1. Healthy Goals - TWO 5am workouts and back on the healthy eating train! NO excuses, just do it. (like Nike!)
3. Two of my favorite people have birthdays this week - my baby brother will be 22 on Tuesday and one of my best friends (&bridesmaid) has her birthday this weekend
4. We are setting up two of our single friends on Thursday night - should be interesting

What are you looking forward to this week to get you through to the weekend?

An ex-boyfriend of mine had the same alternating nights/days shift schedule (also a po-po), so I'm just sending you and Skye a little love for living through it!
