Weekend Snaps

Happy Monday, all!

How was everybody’s weekend? It was quite a productive one around the Anderson household.

Ryan surprised me with just because flowers at the start of the weekend – the yellow and lavender roses are right up my alley lately with my obsession for all things spring and pastel!

I’m convinced that Finley wants me to put makeup on him – his spot on my vanity bench remains one of his favorite locations in the house, plastered against my leg, of course.

I’ve had a lot of practice with baby boy gift baskets throughout the past year, and I had the opportunity to create yet another masterpiece this weekend for one of Ryan’s coworkers who is about to be a first-time dad. His girlfriend loves foxes, so I ran with that theme. Not pictured: the cutest baby slippers with fox heads on the front. To. die. for.

I think Finn was trying to tell mommy and daddy to take a break from all the housework and watch TV with him. No joke – he jumped on the couch to snatch the remote and proceeded to run all over the house with it. We couldn’t even be mad at him because it was too entertaining – who needs TV when you have an 11-month old puppy, right?!

The black and white dalmatian print curtains arrived from The Bluebird Shop! Even though I had planned to hang these in the family room, I’ve since changed my mind since the decor and overall mood we are going for in there has shifted a bit. So, since I can’t return them (oops), I think they are going to hang in the guest room instead.

The built-ins are nearly finished – Ryan worked his tush off this weekend and made significant progress on them. I’m so excited to share the final product! Ryan is even more excited to not have to build another bookshelf anytime soon. #diynovice

And, just like that – the weekend ended with warm puppy snuggles and a quick snooze on the couch.

    Finn is seriously so adorable! What personality!! I had animal snuggles too just with a kitty cat! They can be so demotivating can't they?? Lol but can't blame them cause they are cute!

    Ryan has done such a great job on the bookshelves considering he's never done anything like this before! We both are just very anxious for it to be finished. 🙂

  3. 3.31.15

    Ha, right?! Sometimes I'm amazed that I'm ever productive with Finn around.

  4. 3.31.15

    Um, YES. You're welcome anytime.

  5. 3.31.15

    Good for you! Relaxing weekends are the absolute best.

  6. 3.31.15

    I couldn't agree with you more!

    Finn is my little companion! Seriously, he's pretty much by my side wherever I am – we got pretty lucky with getting such a sweet pup. I'm trying to figure out how to incorporate the extra curtain panel (I ordered 3) into my office – it's too long for this window because of the wide windowsill, but maybe I can figure something else out. We shall see! Glad you had a relaxing weekend after a busy week!

  8. 3.31.15

    Puppy snuggles are my absolute favorite!

  9. 3.31.15

    Thanks, lady – I'm excited for it to be done so I can share it with all of you!

  10. 3.31.15

    Ryan definitely did a good job with the flowers! I am trying to figure out a way to use the third curtain panel in my office – I can't have long curtains in here because of the super wide windowsill, but maybe I can rig a valence out of the extra panel or something. We will see!

  11. 3.31.15

    Thanks, girl! Ryan definitely did a great job with the flowers, and sweet Finn – I'm not sure what we did in life before him!

  12. 3.31.15

    Hopefully you're going to see them finished (probably not decorated yet, though) next weekend!

  13. 3.31.15

    Thanks, lady!

  14. 3.31.15

    I may or may not dab his nose now and again with just a touch of powder … I mean, it's kind of hard to resist, right?! He's my little companion!

  15. 3.31.15

    Thanks, lady! I absolutely love creating baby gift baskets, so I'm glad they seem to turn out nice. This one was extra cute with all the fox stuff going on. 🙂 Happy Tuesday!

  16. 3.31.15

    Thanks, girls!

  17. 3.31.15

    They sure are! I was so excited when Ryan came home with them. 🙂

  18. 3.31.15

    I agree about the flowers! I've had so much practice with baby gift baskets lately, so I feel like I finally have them down – thanks girl!

  19. 3.31.15

    Finn sure is entertaining – we definitely are never bored around here!

  20. 3.31.15

    I was thinking about doing a DIY gift basket tutorial, and now I think you've convinced me! I'll have to wait until I have another baby to buy for. 🙂

  21. 3.31.15

    I have the same black and white obsession – I can't recommend that Etsy shop enough for curtains and throw pillows. The quality is unbelievable.

  22. 3.31.15

    I love all of the Finn pictures – could he be any cuter?! So excited to see the finished bookshelves!! I'm sure they are looking amazing!
