Good morning and happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Our weekend was quite eventful, here is little peek at what it looked like…

Photo 1: We bought our first home on Friday afternoon (cue my happy dance!). We are so excited we can’t stand it! It’s in the perfect neighborhood, has a picket-fenced back yard, and the front door is red. I’m obsessed. We have been and will be spending any free moment we have this week packing up our sweet little apartment (the dogs are TERRIFIED of bubble wrap, it’s hysterical.), in preparation for moving day a week from today! We have been house hunting for quite some time and it is so nice to finally have something that we can call ours.

P.S. This is only a sneak peek of the house, I am in the middle of working on our moving announcement illustration, once I finish, I’ll share all the details!

Photo 2:I made these homemade treats to bring to our closing meeting on Friday afternoon. Each cake was personalized with a little thank you tag and tied up in pretty blue and white twine. We’ve been working with the seller, agent, and brokers for the last month and a half and I was almost sad our daily chats would be over… So I whipped up our favorite Sour Cream Pound Cake recipe to give out as a thank you. Plus, it never hurts to bring sweets to a meeting! Everyone flipped over their personal little cakes, but then again,  it’s pound cake… how could you not be excited!?

Photo 3: And to top off a great weekend we ended up going to a Magic game! My husband and I both love going to games and grew up going with our families. So when we get the opportunity to go, we hop on it! This weekend we were so generously given two great seats, so we made a date night out of it! We had the best time, and of course… as soon as we got there I made a bee line for the popcorn. Are you surprised?

And per usual, I’ve got some really fabulous post coming your way this week! Plus a great desk obsessed on Thursday!

I hope your Monday is off to a great start! Cheers to a fabulous and productive week!!
