Weekend Rewind & a slight Bedroom Makeover

Hubby & I had a very busy, but fun weekend! Friday night we had dinner at a local pizza place with a couple from church. We had a great time just fellowshiping and after dinner we headed back to our house for some more socializing & no-bake cookies (one of my favorites!) Saturday I had to work then I headed to a baby shower for one of my friends from college. She is expecting a baby boy in June! After the shower I headed to my parents' house where my husband had been recruited to help with re-mulching all of my parents' flower beds....let me just tell you this is quite the job & my dad was very thankful for the help. We had pizza delivered & enjoyed a quick meal with Mom & Dad before heading home.

Sunday was of course Mother's Day so we headed down early on Sunday morning to attend church with my parents'--then it was back to their house to fix lunch. I volunteered to take care of all the planning for lunch which included my parents, my mom's parents, & Hubby & I. We had hamburgers, homemade french fries, & homemade peach cobbler. I do have to brag on myself--the french fries & cobbler were both amazing & I received tons of compliments. I got my mom a more practical gift of neat plastic plates for them to eat outside on & also some new colorful dish towels. She absolutely loved them! My brother came down later in the afternoon & we simply sat around inside because it was COLD!!! My cousin was also having a come & go graduation party so we made an appearance at that later in the afternoon.

In unrelated weekend news, we have recently had a slight makeover of our master bedroom. We've just changed out the comforter & pillow shams but man is there a big difference. Hubby & I were both really tired of our old comforter & it looked very tired as well. It was only 2 years old but it looked like we'd had it forever. So...Hubby & I were casually looking for a new one, hoping we'd happen on something we absolutely loved...and we did. The only requirement was that the color scheme had to remain the same because I didn't want to have to change all the accent pieces, wall hangings, window treatments, etc. in the room.

Here is our before picture...

& Here is our after picture....

Hubby & I are both so much happier with the new look...the other comforter set was just so dark--at least this has a little bit of life!

The bedroom makeover looks good...I've been looking for something for our master for a while and just can't come up with anything that I like!

In fact, I've got another return I need to make! ;-)
