I’ve never met a weekend I didn’t like and this past one was exceptional great! Friday after work, Dustin and I had a date night. We kept it convenient and went to Atlantic Station. I snapped the above photo before dinner with my Iphone after looking over and thinking “dang, what a hunk!” Then we had beers and supper at Yard House followed by the movie theater to see American Sniper. Though it was sad, it was a really good film. Dustin had read the book and said a lot of it was embellished but I suppose that’s how most stories get construed. Sienna Miller has always been one of my top favorite fashion inspirations, always enjoy seeing her act as well.
Saturday the weather was gorgeous and we had tons of natural light pouring into our little home and since I had rented an 85mm L series lens, I experimented with it indoors. First with our fancy coffee we grinned up and used in a French press. I randomly saw this limited edition coffee on Manready Merchantile’s Instagram and thought Dustin would love it and he did! There are whiskey and smokey notes, both of which are right up his alley.
The buffet cabinet I use in the master bedroom with some of my weavings I put on dowels along with trinkets and my new West Elm jewelry box.
My stock pile of flower crowns. One of which I made recently for a friend for Hangout music festival we’ll be attending in a little under 2 months. Can’t wait!
Pottery made by Dustin’s sister Sarah Anne, the pitcher holds my Nana’s old spoons and our muddler.
The only time I left the house on Saturday was to walk to Spotted Trotter, a local charcuterie, for some breakfast sausages. Just now realizing everything I wore was from Gap (minus the Frye boots) guess they have been my go-to brand as of lately.
Our home has two non-working fireplaces, one in the living room and one in the guest bedroom. Though it would be nice if they were functioning during the cold winter days, I still appreciate the mantels we use to display our favorite trinkets like this deer candle I was given as a gift from Emma, one of Dustin’s knives from India, a pitcher from my grandparents, a chardonnay flavored candle and a hawk feather I found at a music fest a long time ago.
A favorite part of my weekends is time spent hanging around the house goofing off with the cats. Of our two indoor cats, Tater is the most playful and snugly. He’s actually very strong too!
Not shown here are the cocktails Dustin and I made and I photographed. Those I’m saving for the next post! Also, Sunday was a much busier day with a picnic and photographing a supper at the Goat Farm. I’ll be sharing both of those here as well! Hope your weekend was equally as sunny and all you ladies took the time to celebrate National Women’s Day!
