Hello! Weekend Pretties.

6T5C6977Breakfast for dinner at one of our favorites.6T5C6961Truth is, I bought them because they’re pretty but I have no idea what to make with persimmons.6T5C7003Lots of rain around these parts lately.  Been waking up to fog and drizzle every day this week.6T5C6996 6T5C6990A power outage turned romantic candle-lit dinner.

Long time no blog, yeah?  Sorry.  I haven’t felt much like blogging.  This renovation has me feeling a little depressed and it’s zapped a lot of my energy and creativity.  We still don’t have part of our countertops and Ikea has no idea when we will, our builder has been MIA so we’re going to have to finish what they started by ourselves, and in general, talking about it just makes me want to cry.  So that’s where we’re at on that.  And that’s why I haven’t felt much like blogging.  No one wants to hear about the depressing parts of renovating a home and if you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all, right?  :)  But I’m starting to peel myself off the floor and get in to DIY mode with a lot of this stuff now that we know we aren’t waiting on our builder anymore.  Things are looking up.  And even with so much not finished, Parker and I both really love our home and this awesome neighborhood we moved to.

Oh!  And our new sofa came and it’s – so!! – cool.  I’ll show an update of our living room next week now that the sofa is in place.  This weekend we’re hosting dinner for my family now that we have places to sit and even without all of my counters, I’m excited to make it work and cook up a storm.

Have a wonderful weekend. Here are some fun things to look at if you are in a browsing mood.

Elaborate self portraits.

But how?!

Fast forward to 0:25 and I dare you not to smile.

Got lots of laughs out of this one: Brits try to identify the United States.

    Persimmon pudding… That’s what you make with persimmons. I wish I had my grandmas recipe, it’s the best. But apparently it’s a trade secret that I am not yet ready to have lol.

      Ooh if you ever find yourself worthy enough to get that recipe, I hope I can convince you to share it! Sounds yummy! :)

    I’m so excited to find fellow atlanta bloggers! I’m loving your blog. Great photos! I wouldn’t know what to do with persimmons either! They sure are pretty though.
