Ketchup + Weekend Update

So I blogged once last week. Oopsies! It was a nice little break. What was I doing all week? being the booziest little lush Spending a lot of time with friends. Matthew’s best friend turned 28, We had to see a co-worker off who landed a new job, we had a girls night out on the town that I just couldn’t pass up, and one of Matthew’s close friends took us out Saturday night as a late wedding present. Oh and it rained. Like an abnormal amount. These pictures sum up my life lately:

Freaking love this Kiki La' Rue dress. Borrowed it from Kristen and its just so cute.

Bulldogs are really entertaining I've learned.

I have no pictures of Brenner's, where we went on Saturday. But it was amazeballs, and if you are in Houston you should definitely check this place out. Needless to say, my body is screaming for a detox.  I think scream is an understatement. And I think Matthew feels the same. He’s all grumpy-like because I’m not cooking and cleaning, but whatevs, I had me some fun! Fear not Matthew (do you read this??), detox is on its way, as well as a scary boot camp that I signed up for off of groupon. 

Before I hit the health train, which mind you I haven’t rode since before the wedding, I am making some huge decisions on the house. I went to a big selection appointment Saturday, and we thought we did amazingly well. So decisive! Ha. That lasted about 12 hours. Because they sent me to tile and décor for JUST kitchen backsplash – and I pretty much changed my mind on everything. Totes my style ya’ll. Check out all this crazy store:

I mean woudlnt you change your mind too?! Bish showed me half my options! GTFO! Of course I picked a bunch of stuff that was not standard. Hey, some of it was cheaper than what they offered, so good day to you Mr. Builder. 

So, that’s that. Glad to be back blogfriends. And thanks for the support with my stressiness last week. I felt a million times better after I hit publish, and it was a great reminder of why I love blogging. For some reason the written word helps me process everything, which sounds super mushy and gushy but hey – it’s the truth.

Now go check out Sami, Dana, Leeann and all the other weekend updaters. They’re some cool bloggers I have enjoyed getting to know lately. 

Happy Monday :)

That dress is freaking amazing. I would like to borrow it please!

And I am certainly in need of a detox too. I feel like I have just been stuffing my face with booze and pre-packaged food lately. I've got to turn that around. If you figure out how to do that, let me know.

Thanks for linking up, lovely lady!

Okay, you need to find out where your friend got that dress because I need it NOW!!! And, I can only imagine how indecisive I would be if I had to pick selections for a new house! Glad you scored some cuter and less expensive selections. And I am joining the healthy train today! Going into the gym for the first time in 6 months!! Wish me luck! Coming over from the link up and happy to be following along! Have a great week!
