weekend in review...

This weekend wasn't much different than last weekend, really.  

Awesome girls night... new restaurant... great food... good shopping... throw in a fun wedding and an adorable babysitting gig and you really can't go wrong.  Here's what I did this weekend...


My best friend since 3rd grade drove up from Nashville on Friday for an impromptu slumber party.  It was the best last minute sleepover I've ever had.  This picture is a pretty good representation of us.  I thought it was pretty funny when Christi pulled out the scarf she brought to wear on Saturday, and I realized I had the exact same one in my own closet.  Great minds think alike.

Friday night we had dinner at a new restaurant in Louisville, Harvest.  It was pretty dang tasty.  Everything was super fresh and locally grown... hence the name, Harvest.

Then we walked down the street to Garage Bar for drinks...

The weather was absolutely perfect... cool, actually.  It was the perfect night to just sit outside, have a drink and catch up with an old friend.

Saturday morning we slept in a little, then walked over to my favorite antique spot.  The Goss Antique Mall... you know, the one I always say I'm going to dedicate an entire post to because of it's sheer awesomeness.  One day friends... one day.  Christi was on a hunt for an old trunk to add some vintage character to her house... we found several... just not "the one."

I've been on the hunt for a file cabinet for months now... and lookey-what-I-found.  Only the most-beautiful-wooden-credenza-file-cabinet-ever.  I'm hoping to snatch it up this week... fingers crossed no one buys it before I can get back over there.

Christi and I headed over to the Butterfly Garden Cafe for lunch... which is the exact same place I took my Georgia girlfriends last weekend... but I knew Christi would like it, and they have the sweetest little vintage shop attached to the restaurant... and I thought, just maybe we could find the perfect trunk there... and we did!!!  Sadly Christi had to drive back to Nashville after lunch... but the short trip was so worth it.  I'm so glad she was able to come.

After Christi left I had just enough time to get cleaned up for a friend's wedding.  It was beautiful.  It was an adorable couple that is in our community group, so the gang was all there.  Here's a pic of me and my friend Hillary at the reception.

My weekend came to a close with this handsome little guy.  Adorable, right?  Some friends of mine asked if I could babysit for them last night... I happily agreed... mainly because I know how cute their baby is.  I mean seriously... look at that face.

I don't think he knew quite what to make of me.  "What is wrong with this crazy lady??"

Crazy or not... it was a great weekend.  But I'll tell you what... I am ready for my husband to get home already... geez.  Three more days... three.more.days.

What about you?  How was your weekend?

Christi looks exactly the same! I think it is so amazing that you two are still such great friends. I am slightly jealous :)

Sounds like an awesome weekend. And yay for best friends from 3rd grade! Question - the huuuuge antique place, reasonably priced? If yes, I just might have to come to Kentucky...
