{{{Warning:: if Blogger has a photo limit, this post just might not make it to the blogosphere because it is loaded with pictures. You have been warned... }}}

I feel like it was just yesterday that I was sitting here posting about our weekend plans. + now suddenly it's Tuesday + I'm already a day late posting about our actual weekend. Crazy. Our weekend was very enjoyable + relaxing. With everything going on in our lives lately, all I want is just to be with the people that I love, and so.....

Friday night we attended said work Christmas party. A good time was had by all + we returned home exhuasted around 3 a.m.

Saturday the hubs was lucky enough to sleep in until noon. Sadly, I was up around 6 a.m. with excruciating pain in my neck. It had been bothering me for several days + causing headaches- I must have slept on it wrong Friday night which resulted in not being able to turn my head to the left on Saturday morning. So I spent the morning cleaning-- hardcore cleaning. I even cleaned out the fridge. It felt good.

Brian eventually woke up and Hollie came over to hang out. Right behind her was the mailman with -you guessed it- Dark Was The Night! Needless to say we plopped that baby in + jammed out for the next couple of hours.

Then we headed out to run a marathan of errands- but stopped off at a couple record shops first where we walked out with the likes of Elvis Costello; Pink Floyd; Bob Segar; The Eagles; Tom Petty + The Heartbreakers; Journey; Johnny Cash; Simon & Garfunkel; + The National. {SCORE}! Then we preceeded with the errands- dropping off goodies at Goodwill + dropping $300 worth of groceries + other miscellenous items. Then we headed home to put away groceries, + quick get ready for poker night!

The crew {plus awesome new friend Sarah!} headed over, + after the usual photo shoot in the kitchen...

..... we made our way up to the "man cave" for some poker!

I wasn't lying when I said I was going to win. These were my chips....

Photobucket




Hell yes! G was rather bored watching us play poker all night though. Not the attention that he is used to getting...

It was another late night and we headed to bed around 2. Only this time it wasn't a pain in my neck waking me up in the early a.m., but rather my alarm clock. I had plans to meet my mom + sisters at the flea market, so up I got {very sleep deprived + neck still hurting!}

But oh boy, was it worth it! Check the amazing pieces that I scored!!

Photobucket


{vintage mirror; three vintage cameras;+ a beautiful turquoise ring.} All for $25! Just check out these beauties...

Photobucket



I will most likely just display the two on the right, but the Duaflex is in excellent condition + I can't wait to use it!! I have actually previously bid on two of these babies on ebay only to be outbid for at least $50. So you can imagine my surprise when I stumbled across this baby. I snagged it in its mint-condition, along with it's original manual, flash + 3 bulbs for $7!!!! I am so excited to use it!!

And of course this beautiful baby. The seller had a box of awesome rings that he found with a metal detector on the beach. Pretty cool! I was more than happy to fork over my $5!

Photobucket



Headed back home to show my honey the loot that I scored + he was very impressed! I of course whipped out the camera so that I could supply you with the lovely images above, but decided to take a few more of some of my favorite things around the house too. What can I say? I do love my camera. Now if only Spring would hurry up so I could take my happy-snapping baby outside. But in the meantime...

And of course my sisters because they stopped over. :)

Kirby in her new glasses!

I love this one of Hollie...

Kirby was headed to a friend's house, but Hollie spent the day with us again {she just loves us so much, right Hol?} We headed out for breakfast and then stopped at Lowe's to pick up some paint for the spare room {yes, finally!} While we were at Lowe's we checked out the rug section {because we always do because we need a rug for our bedroom + can never find the right thing, or the right price} and low + behold.... we found the perfect rug at the perfect price! It was an interesting ride home with a gigantic white fluffy rug in the car, but we mangaged + it was definitely worth it! We love it!!!

Photobucket



Did I mention G loves it too?!?

Photobucket




The remainder of our night was spent pigging out on the couch + watching the Oscars. And of course, Hollie + I rewatched all parts with Robert Pattinson over + over! Yes!


I also wanted to share a little sneak peek for my Jennifer.....

I hope you will love them!

I read your blog daily but never post! Love all the pics you took over the weekend. It would be great to see more of your home.

Hollie Golightly said...

Your house is like my vaca home. Duh! You forgot the Entourage! In that funny voice, and Danny following us around town in his snow pants.
:p

Joi said...

Chelsea! I just love your blog posts!

You have talent with that camera.

One question, are you using any certain program for editing them and enhancing the color?

mrs.leah.maria said...

Absolutely lovely Chels!

Chelsea said...

Thanks Lindsay! So glad that you did post because now I get to indulge in your blog as well! I will have to make an effort to take more photos of our house. I usually only really get around to that on the weekends- but I will try to make a point of that. :)

Sorry Hollie- I am getting old + can't remember every detail. That's what you are for!

Thanks Joi!! I use a mix of Photoshop and Picnik, depending on what I feel like doing. I usually use Picnik for just a quick pick me up, but Photoshop if it's an important picture or if I have more time. Hope that helps!

And as always, thanks Leah! :)

I, like Lindsay above, ready your blog daily but never comment! I agree - I would LOVE to see more of your house, your pictures were fabulous that you took last weekend! Where did you get G's treat jar?? We also have a english bulldog and that's such a cute jar :) I don't have a blog, but have been seriously thinking of starting one, you may have inspired me!

Chelsea said...

Hi Brianne! I am so glad that you did comment.. I love hearing what people think! And I am even more glad to hear that you enjoy what you read here! :) I will definitely get on taking more pictures of our house since people must like those! And the treats jar is from Target of all places! Really, what isn't from Target? We got it about two years ago, but they tend to carry the same items in that department a lot so you might get lucky! It is for sure G's favorite thing in our house. :) That is SO COOL that you guys have an English Bully as well.. aren't they the absolute best dogs?!?! I would love to see pictures of your bully SO you should defintiely start up your own blog! I am so happy that I was able to be inspiration for that. I really look forward to my "blogging" time because it allows me to just express myself freely and I know that I'm not being judged. And I really like to write and share my photos and share what inspires me and I am so honored that what inspires me has inspired you too! Be sure to keep me posted!!
