weekend festivities...

Our weekend was a little crazy.  It mainly consisted of last minute errands, packing suitcases, and catching flights.  Friday night Lance and I had dinner at one of our favorite sushi joints and tried to soak up some quality time before he left for Nepal...  

Then we had a little pre-birthday celebration for Lance... his birthday is actually today (happy birthday love!!) but he opened a few presents before he left for his trip:)  The rest of Friday night was spent running around Louisville like crazy people... trying to make sure Lance had everything he needed for his 2 week stay in Nepal.

Saturday we both hopped on a plane and went our separate ways (insert major sad face here)... Lance headed to Kathmandu, Nepal...

 ...while I skipped on over to Houston, TX.

When I got to my parent's house, I was greeted by a big party (and my best friend, Christi).  They were hosting a big wedding party for some of our family friends (Christi's little brother) and everything was already rockin' and rollin' when I got there:)

But let's not forget the MAIN reason why I am here in Houston... TO REDECORATE!!!  Woop! Woop!  My parents basically flew my sister and I out to Houston for a few days so we could do some major updating in their home.  So yesterday was mainly spent gathering all of their "stuff" from various parts of the house so we could start with a fresh slate...

And... holy.freakin.stuff.  The amount of "things" I collected from around the house is out of control.

The sheer volume of faux greenery was absolutely ridiculous.  My parents definitely agreed... especially after seeing it all together in one spot.  I mean, seriously... you could get lost in that faux jungle... lost, and never found again.

My sister flew in yesterday afternoon... and we wasted no time!  We hit up a few favorite spots (Tuesday Morning, TJ Maxx, and Target) and bought rugs, bedding, lamp shades, and shower curtains... Redecorating with someone else's budget is WAY more exciting:) 

But we still have TONS more work to do... I mean, did you see that pile of stuff up there?!?  Don't you worry... there will be plenty of before-and-after photos!!

What about you?  How was your weekend??
