On a scale of 1-10.

So, I get really excited about two things: puppies and babies. LIKE REALLY excited. Like I make weird noises and become obnoxiously giddy.

My poor husband thinks that I am crazy and weird and that I am the only in the world that acts this way. I assure him that I am not and that there are others like me. And now I have proof. Thank you, Kristen Bell. You have helped me very much.

See, Jer, I’m not crazy.

PS- Kristen, this makes you our new fav celeb.

Weekend Update.

Normally, this post comes out on Monday. But, the SAG awards were on Monday. So, what does that mean for you?!? You get an extra day and and extra pictures in your weekend update. Score. You can thank the Screen Actors Guild. Anyways…

A lot went on this weekend. Some really exciting stuff and some really scary stuff. And at the end of the weekend, Jeremy and I were just thankful.

We spent Friday night in. Redbox and Homemade Black Beans and Rice. (Incredible. Recipe here.)

On Saturday, Jeremy’s parents were almost home- they got into a car wreck. Everyone is fine, but just a little banged and bruised. We were so glad that we could be with them and are so thankful that everyone is alright! So, Jeremy and I made a surprise visit to Clarksville on Saturday.

When you go to Clarksville you have to go to Blackhorse. Even if it is an hour and a half wait.

We headed back to Nashville that night and had a wonderfully lazy Sunday.

Grocery shopping. Notice that Jeremy is in charge of pushing the grocery cart. I am not allowed. I hit things. Specifically Jeremy’s heels. Whoops.

Then had fro-yo for lunch. We LOVE Sweet CeCe’s. We got it free. We’re still not sure how that happened, but pumped all the same.

Went to the gym to work-off the fro-yo lunch. (side note: why do they always play sad movies in the cinema room at the y? they played we are marshall. i am trying to concentrate on my breathing– crying does not help.) 

Then pulled out the tried and true Pro/Con lists for some upcoming decisions. Thank you, Rory Gilmore.

Then Monday I headed back to C-ville. Spent the afternoon with Lauren and Emily. And my family.

My parent’s house is perfection.

These guys missed me. And I missed them.


How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?

Happy Tuesday, Mary

Three Things.

1. Warby Parker. I know, I know. We’ve blogged about this before, but we really do love these glasses. I got my five try-on pairs shipped to me this week. So fun.I have narrowed it down to two. Which do you think look better? 1 or 2? Let me know!!!

2. Weimaraners. The sweetest dogs alive. When we were growing up, we always had one. I just really want one to snuggle with and play with. I won’t even mind when he goes to the bathroom on the carpet or chews up my shoes. Really I won’t- as long as I get to snuggle.  I mean who could resist this face?!?! (Image)

3. Wellies. Or as we Americans call them, rain boots. I’ve had my eye on a pair of Hunters for a while. They are just a little too $$$. And they have a ton of colors to choose from. I can’t really tell which one I like the best, but I have it narrowed down to my favorites! Which ones do you like the best? They’re all just so great!  The Queen of England wears them, so they have to be great right? You can get your pair here.

fuchsia and blackberry

cranberry and vermillion

This has never happened to me before. I am not a summer kind-of-a girl. Let me clarify. I love the ocean with my whole heart. If I had to choose one place to be it would be at a beach somewhere. But, summer is not my favorite. It’s hot and I don’t like to sweat unless I am working out. I am more of a fall and spring kind-of-a-girl.

But this year is different. It is January 24th. I don’t want spring. I am CRAVING summer. I may just miss this:

and this:

Or maybe it’s because we have a lot of traveling to do this summer with vacations and all the weddings.

Either way, the facts are the same. It’s January 24th and I want summer.

the weekend.

This weekend the weather was weird and crummy. It was like 60 degrees one minute and then 38 degrees the next. (We slept through the tornadoes! Whoops!) The sun decided to not show its face AT ALL. Awesome. But you have to admit the fog looked pretty cool.

We ate at Germantown Cafe with my parents for Nashville Originals Week. I predicted that the Coconut Curry Salmon would be in my belly and I was right. And it was GOOD.

I went out for a girls night. Whiskey Kitchen. Yum and yum. Their pizzas are incredible. And the girls and I recommend the Blackberry Jeulip and the Marmalade Whiskey Sour.

We watched one of our favorite TV shows. (While flipping back to football.)

We made some yummy treats. (Poppyseed Bread and Fruit Smoothies)

And best of all, I just got to hang out with this guy.

I hope that your weekend was relaxing, wonderful, and exactly what you needed.

Happy Monday! Xo, Mary
