Weekend ReCap {& A Winner!}

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Congrats Joni! 

This weekend was a full one y'all. We were so darn busy all weekend long. Miss Addison's birthday is fast approaching and up until Saturday I hadn't done anything to prepare for her party. I was starting to freak out a bit because I've usually got it all done by now; I like to plan ahead. I was browsing Etsy looking for some cute invitations when I decided that instead of spending $10-$14 on a custom digital image, I'd just design my own.

What do you think? I designed them at home with a program I already had, and then took the digital file to Staples and had them print them on card stock for me. Total cost, $4. Score! Of course the mustache and lips are not part of the invite ;)

On Saturday, I had to get my hands a little dirty. Eww. A few months back my little man busted up our pretty flat screen television. We've since replaced it and hubs has been wanting to hang it up above our fireplace to hopefully prevent any future mishaps. I have been terrified to do this because it just seems unsafe to be, but, do it we did!

We aren't completely finished with the transformation - some wires need to be run through the wall so they won't be visible but for now it's good. The t.v. used to sit on this beautiful stand:

Y'all, this thing is SO heavy. Hubs was worried about how he was going to move it out of the living room and into our bedroom. I thought he was being a bit of a baby about it, but whatever. Well, he left it in the middle of the living room floor when he left for work this morning. Seeing as how it had been sitting there since Saturday afternoon, I was tired of looking at it! I felt I had no other choice but to take matters into my own hands. I pushed this beast all the way down the hall and into my bedroom. Now, my back is killing me. I'm hoping to DIY this piece in the near future. I want to sand it, paint it, make it look a little shabby. Any pointers would be appreciated!

Anyhow, once I got the t.v. stand out of the living room, I had to get the new furniture in place.

TWO NEW BOOKSHELVES! I know y'all probably think I'm a total spaz for being so excited over a couple of dumb bookshelves but I have literally been buggin' the hubs for bookshelves for the longest time! Of course when it's his idea to buy them...Can you believe I still have 3 empty shelves?  I plan to fill them up with more books & my overload of magazines!

Are you exhausted yet? Well, after all the hard work was done, Mama needed a reward. So...I got my hair did. Yup, did. (ha!)

I feel pretty...oh so pretty! I got 3 inches cut off! I think its just was the doctor ordered! 

OH, and Happy Fall Y'all!! My favorite season is here!!
