Happy Monday!

I had a rather fun and hectic weekend, so I thought I would stray from the usual content and link up with Biana for a weekending recap!

Finley and I headed down to my hometown of Schaumburg, Ill., early Friday morning to spend some much-needed quality time with my mom and dad. We had a fun afternoon of going out to lunch and a mega trip to Ikea. I picked up a few great pieces for the house, including our new eat-in kitchen table!

By the time we got home, we all were pretty tired and Finn wasn’t anxious for me to leave again anytime soon. So, we were in for the night!

The primary reason that I went away for the weekend was to celebrate my little cousin’s baby shower Saturday!

Can you believe that she is eight months pregnant?! She’s so tiny! 

This is a cousin inside joke … we had to get the baby in on it!

It was a great afternoon celebrating Rachael and her baby boy, Alexander. She is due Valentine’s Day, so my aunt decorated everything in blue and red colors. Looking back, I should’ve taken more photos of all the details!

I left my parent’s house early Sunday so I could get home in time to turn on the E! Golden Globes red carpet coverage! The rest of the day was spent on the couch gawking and commenting on all the celebrity fashion, and Ryan and I enjoyed our traditional award-night Chinese food.

How was your weekend? Tell me in the comments!
