Happy Monday, everyone!  I hope your weekend was as amazing as mine.  I’m linking up with Kate Kati again to share a quick recap of the weekend.  It was a great weekend so I will warn you that my bad and ugly are a huge stretch.

But first… just a reminder.  Have you entered the giveaway yet?!  Ok… on with the weekend!

The Good

My parents and I spent the weekend in Minnesota visiting my brother and his girlfriend.  It’s always so wonderful to see him.  We sat up until 6am Friday night Saturday morning, drinking beer and talking.  When I was in college and lived in Minneapolis, we got to do that all the time.  When I lived in Kentucky, it almost never happened.  It was so great to have a night to catch up.

The Bad

My bad is that I don’t get to see the people I love who live in Minneapolis more often.  This trip, I was able to see my best friend, her husband, and their three kids.  How fast they are growing up, and mow much of their lives I’ve missed, is also a bad.  (Told you it was a stretch….)

It is an understatement to say that I love these children.  So great to see them.

(Sad that I didn’t get a pic with the oldest.  He was too busy being a little grown up and charming my family.)

The Ugly 

Remember last week when I said my ugly was that I was really struggling to decorate the apartment?  Ugly no more!  I bought $200 worth of things to fix up the apartment this weekend.  I now have a dining room table, a new rug, pictures on the wall in the living room, and a few other little things that I’ve been searching for since I moved in.  Gotta love IKEA and cute little boutiques.

(Pardon my awkward torso in the mirrors.  Couldn’t figure out how to take the pictures otherwise!  Also, pardon the old textbooks holding down the rug.  Trying to get the corners to uncurl!)
