My weekend according to my phone…

I was scrolling through pics on my phone today to decide what to blog about so I finally just decided to share some of my favorite snapshots from the weekend. πŸ™‚


You guys know that I’m a nanny for two kiddos.Β But that’s only part time. The rest of my “8-5” time is filled with whatever I want to fill it with. So that’s usually volunteer work, my photography business, house stuff,Β the gym, blogging, etc. This past Friday that free time included taking care of two sweet little boys who belong to some of our best friends. We had a great day together. πŸ™‚ I mean, just look at that adorable face!

Friday night we went over to Stephen & Julia’s house (some of our friends here in Memphis) and their sweet dog, Duchess, decided I was the weak link when it came to who would give her table scraps. She was right too. πŸ˜‰ {for the record, I only gave her table food after her owners said it was okay}. She ended up in my lap more than once. Oreo was not pleased when I came home smelling like another dog, ha!

We spent Saturday doing house projects and maintenance. I did a lot of touch up painting around the house while Christopher cleaned out the garage. And I finally got around to painting our new night stand. This is the one we found for $2.19 at a thrift store! It had been spray painted silver previously, but it was streaky and didn’t go with our colors. So I sanded it and then painted it “dove white” and it is perfect in our bedroom! I loooove it!

mac and cheese

Saturday night we went to Mac’s Burgers with Brodie and Lyndal. Since we travel so much in the summer and Lyndal is a youth minister who is crazy busy in the summer, we haven’t been able to hang out with them as much as normal. So it was great to be able to reconnect for an evening. πŸ™‚ Mac’s has burgers and salads and all kinds of tasty looking food, but I was crazy excited about the idea of their macaroni bar. I got the “mac trio” so I could pick three different types. I got the loaded mac (my fav!), the Memphis mac (bbq), and cheese steak mac (philly cheese steak toppings). They were all tasty. Not the best macaroni and cheese I’ve had, but I understand why it has to be pretty basic since it has to go well with so many different toppings. It’s definitely a fun spot for something a little different.

If you went to a mac & cheese bar, what toppings would you choose?

What did you do this weekend?

  2. Mac and cheese bar!? Wow how fun. I do the same thing at times when I want to blog, but am not sure what to write. Photos to the rescue!

  5. wow, so jealous of that nightstand find! i should definitely keep a look out, i always forget that i can paint things and i love the white that you painted it.

    • It was SUCH a steal! We thought it was $15 when we went to check out so you can imagine our delight when they told us it was $2 (plus tax). I think it’s going to spoil me for looking for furniture in the future. πŸ˜‰
