scenes from the weekend (& more)

Bella and Allen snuggling

my sleeping beauties

qua-trefoil print from a long time ago that I finally put to use

last Sunday we found that a house finch had made a nest in my front door wreath

I moved the wreath to the wall next to the front door so we wouldn't disturb the nest and just hoped the bird would still come back to it to lay her eggs

 tried out a pinterest inspired polish and liked it for a few days
(polish: revlon rock and milani jewel fx gem)

 our little finch found the new spot!

 some cute owls I spotted at Pier1 while shopping for my mug swap partner

 replicating a cute photo Mayra posted of her bulldogs on instagram earlier in the week

 tagged by Emily for the "5 random things" on instagram

 Bella wound up with an eye infection during the week and we had to make sure she didn't bother them when we applied the drops

 changed my polish two days after the purple color to my fave minty green
(polish: sally hansen mint sorbet)

 I work for #13

 I made Lucky Charms treats for my office

 3rd polish change of the week and this one went through the weekend
(polish: essie big spender)

 the progression of the nest throughout the week

 I love things like this and just had to take a photo of this beautiful terracotta pot

 hung out with family on Saturday - love my lil' Ava girl

 my outfit on Saturday (I forgot to wear green) and my cute lil' Daisy

 my St. Patty's day drink - they didn't have green beer so a margarita would suffice

 last nights game was a nail-biter - KU is in the Sweet 16!

 and this color is how I'm beginning my week - lavender and sparkles
(polish:  cosmetic arts and opi it's my year)

I went home for the weekend to spend time with my family and forgot my camera at my parents house when I drove out to my cousin's to see everyone.  I was so disappointed in myself because I would have loved some photos with everyone who was there that day.  We had a great time chatting and eating (what family get togethers are for) and afterwards, my Dad, brother, sis-in-law, cousin Kristy, her husband Kevin and myself went to Razzoo's for crawfish and adult beverages.
On Sunday I went and hung out with my mother-in-law for a little bit then went to see Honey after he got home from church.  I helped write a few extra thank you cards for donations made in my Gramma's name and then my noisy pugs and I got back on the road late in the afternoon.
What is usually a 2 1/2-3 hour drive for me turned into 4 + hours and I didn't get home last night until after 8pm.
Last I was able to check before leaving town our birdie had only laid 3 eggs and she has been incubating them each time I've gone outside to look since getting home last night so I hope to check on them today when I get off work.  House Finches typically lay from 4-6 eggs so I'm wondering if she will have any others when I check today.  I can't wait to watch the progress of them going from eggs to baby birds.  I will probably keep that wreath out year round now that it has a nest so that any other birdies can use it whenever.

Happy Monday y'all!

Love the polish! I had my green this weekend, but this whole interviewing stuff is really getting in the way. Why won't they hire me if I wear green polish? About to go take it off now actually :( then I shall repaint tonight. I've offically mastered doing my own nails!

Sarah-Life is what you make it said...

how is Honey doing?

also, you don't use the glue that comes with the nails right? you use something else?
