Freakin' Weekend with Cleaning

Happy Monday friends!!

Let's just jump right in, shall we?!

Friday Night I finished The Fault in Our Stars and as most of you have already read it I won't go into detail, but it was a great book. It did make me cry and ya'll know how that goes, lol.

Saturday morning was brunch and running to a few different thrift stores with a friend looking for a jean jacket. Didn't find one so that was a bust but I did find a folding table for cheap in decent condition that I snagged and brought home.

Brunch we tried a new place to me Ciccio Cali in St. Pete. What you see below is what was left after ALL I COULD EAT of my breakfast bowl. Way too much food, but it sure was tasty!

Then Saturday and Sunday I actually managed to clean my room and when I say this know I have been trying to do this since last year! Every time I would start, I would get so far and either get sidetracked or run out of time.

Let me start by showing you this before pic that was taken several weeks ago (beginning of April), the last time I attempted to clean my room and it had gotten much worse but I forgot to take a before picture.



Yes, my bed is still not made. Yes, I still have piles of clothes to put away but I was tired and wanted to go to bed! This is real life people!

It was also kind of an impromptu cleaning as I had a whole list of things to get done (business cards, bag designs, website, reading, etc) and while cleaning has been on my list for about a year apparently I thought I should just get it done and my reasoning was that I would feel more creative if my space was cleaned up and I'm sure that's still true. I did get everything on that list done with the exception of finishing website stuff and I'm okay with that.

Sunday after finishing my room, some reading for a review tomorrow and designing we celebrated my brother's 21st birthday!! He loves his cookie cake, so I quickly made one for him and whipped up some butter cream frosting only to have him remind me he doesn't like butter cream. *face palm*

His friends even managed to get my dad to down a couple of shots and while I've seen my dad drink, I don't remember ever seeing him do a shot. We had a great time, and that's the last of the kids to turn 21 so there's that. It makes me feel weird and so old!

What did you get up to this weekend?

Next Weekend is my Jacksonville Country Superfest that I've been planning since NOVEMBER and I can't wait...come on Friday!


  1. I totally cried during the movie- I find it hard to believe that anyone could make it through without crying!

  2. Sweet work on the cookie cake and great job getting your room done!

  3. Yeah for getting your room done, I always feel better with a clean room. The cookie cake came out great! Who doesn't like butter cream!! Geez! ;) Country Superfest?! Just when I am starting to like Country! Jealous!

  4. Cookie cakes are sooo good! The butter cream frosting sounds delicious- how can anyone not like that?! haha You did an awesome job cleaning your room! I love your ladder desk!

  5. Looks like an awesome weekend! I have been dying to go to Ciccios!

  6. Hahaha... don't feel bad about not making your bed... we NEVER make ours - unless company is coming over, haha! ;P

  7. My bedroom is a disaster all the time! We just close the door when company is coming.

  8. Sounds like a great weekend! And your room looks great!
