Happy Monday everyone! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty spectacular! I'm definitely ready to continue forward in hopes for great week to follow. One way I have come to love to kick off my week is by linking up with Katie for Marvelous In My Monday and recapping the weekend happy moments.
Buckle up because I have lots (of photos) in store for you today!
And don't forget to comment with yours too. I love hearing about them!
Marked 18 months that Billy and I have been together. I shared in my post on Friday that he had a surprise for me and promised I would tell you all today what it was. Well, if you didn't see already over on Instagram or Twitter the surprise was…KAYAKING! He remembered a conversation we had a couple months back about how I had never been, but always wanted to go. It was so much fun!
|it was incredibly peaceful & beautiful|
|the first time we tried to call for pick up there was no answer|
When we got back, the place he took us was about 2 hours away, we rested up some before heading out to the movies. My dad, mom and brother joined in with us! We went to go see 22 Jump Street and no words could do justice to explain how hysterical it was. I think I got an ab workout from it!

The morning and early afternoon was spent hanging out with my family (celebrating an early Father's Day) and doing a few things around the house. Around 6pm Billy came over and we got ready to go see my bestie Kayla for her birthday party. Her birthday is not until later this month, but since she will be out of town Kayla's boyfriend wanted to throw her a little something something before she left!

We all had such a blast! Billy and I had to leave shortly after Kayla opened up her presents to head over to a going away party for one of our friends, Andy. I've known Andy for about 6 years and Billy actually went to high school with him. The funny thing is, Billy and I didn't know Andy was a mutual friend until we started dating..small world right? I don't have any pictures to share from this because I only had my phone with me and they weren't turning out well in the dark :/ (so sorry!).
A happy Father's Day to my dad and all the dad's out there, wherever they may be.
My mom had leave to go on a business trip and we were all able to grab breakfast together on the way to the airport, which was nice start to the day! My dad had heard that it was supposed to rain tomorrow (err...today) so he wanted to head home to finish up the mowing. A stop at the dollar store was made on the way to grab a couple things for a project I had in mind. Last week Sarah over at Paint it Rogue posted a few DIY ideas and the one that had my attention most was for making your own scarf hangers. My mom and I had recently been looking at these for purchase but they can get quite pricey. Instead I spent $3 at the dollar store and am really happy with the final product!
All you need:
-shower curtain rings
|I have 2-3 scarves per ring|
Okay, truth. When I said I spent $3 I was talking only about the project. I can never go into the dollar store and walk out with just what I went for meaning...I also picked up these nifty nail art polishes.
The afternoon involved doing a few cosmetic type things to my blog waiting for my dad to finish with the lawn. Once he did it was time for dinner and the choice was his. He decided that he wanted a pizza from Hungry Howie's while we watched World Cup soccer waiting for the NBA finals to come on.
Last but very not least, I received my first ever box from Influenster!
I cannot wait to reveal to you all what was inside.
Keep a look out for it tomorrow!
