Weekend Update

A baby shower, some beer pong, a DIY craft, and outdoorsy stuff is what our weekend was made of. Too bad the weather was a little bit off it's rocker. It's April, but apparently the cold front didn't get the memo. That's okay, it still worked out great!
1. Husband and I before Meghann and Jeff's Gender Reveal Party. He picked blue, I picked pink. I may have had a hint from the momma-to-be though. Pink wins! It's a girl!
2. On the way to the shower! I loved their invite. By the way, Meghann and Jeff are our neighbors but they're actually much more than just neighbors. Read about it here.
3. Cutest cake ever! And it was so tasty! The cake balls (behind the cake) were also awesome. Meghann's sister-in-law's mother made them. Sorry if that confused you. Anyways, Meghann's sister-in-law and I are throwing a shower in July and the cake balls will definitely be there!
4. A roll of burlap. Hmm... what could I have made? Stay turned this week.
5. Husband mowed the front yard on Saturday and it looked so good. I love the freshly cut grass.
6. Sunday morning, hubby got right to work and mowed the back yard too! He is so great.

Not pictured: Saturday after the Gender Reveal party, I took a nap and then woke up to a text from our neighbors saying, "Fajita's and Ritas?" So of course I got my happy booty out of bed and we headed over. The food and drinks were amazing. Also, earlier that morning we had a neighborhood-wide garage sale. We had borrowed two long tables from my dad to set stuff out, which ended up working out great because we used that for beer pong Saturday evening. Yea, that happened.

By the way, my drink of choice this weekend was this sucker:
OHMYGOSH, SO GOOD. Seriously. Anyone that really knows me knows that I am obsessed with all things strawberry. This tastes like KoolAid, yet you'll catch a buzz from it. I don't hate it.

Oh oh, and last weekend I got a couple new clothing pieces. My favorite, for sure, is the maxi skirt. I got the hot pink (in the picture above) and the mint color. I had to have both. The ones that I got just sold out online but there's a similar one here. I got mine in-store, so I would check there! You can't really tell from my photo, but the skirt is actually sheer toward the bottom. It is SO CUTE on! Most definitely perfect for summer.

Last but not least, if you're following my Instagram, you may have seen pictures from the Google office. Since hubby is employed, I got to do a VIP tour :) Being married to a Noogler has it's perks.


  1. I need that skirt in my life!! Way to cute!

  2. Awh! So glad y'all had such a good weekend! Love the skirt! Def a little jealous, I'm 5'1 so them skirts are dresses on me. Excited to see what you do with the burlap!

  3. Y'alls house looks adorable! And I can't wait to move and meet neighbors and have them be our new BFFs. I'm going to be so depressed if we live next to weirdos.

  4. That skirt is so cute! So is that invite & the cake! & those strawberry lime a ritas are so yummy! I had them a few weeks ago.. YUM! Texas weather was SO weird this weekend! It needs to realize it's the end of April & get with it! ha

  5. LOVE those straw-ber-ritas! The lime-a-ritas are good too. I don't know which I like better! I haven't played beer pong in so long...sounds like fun!

  6. You look SOOO cute! I need that entire outfit! Sadly, F21 and I aren't very good friends. Nothing there ever fits... I have to get a XXXL and it's still awkward, ha! That cake is so cute and fancy! I'll have to try the Straw-ber-ita... does it like the the original one? The original one was WAY too sweet for me, but maybe I'll like this one better?!

  7. you and the hubby look so cute! sounds like a great weekend!

  8. I need to try that Stra-ber-rita!! I saw the gender reveal cake on your IG and I showed Tyler - you know, so he can prepare for our party in the way-future! LOL
