Eventful Weekend at the BeB House!

 (I think this is the perfect image to start the week!)

Welcome back from the weekend, lovers! How was it? I hope you took my advice on Friday and dressed accordingly ;)

Well, it was quite eventful around my house this weekend. My mama took off a couple days of work and came over for a visit. Yes, you're right I did just come back from my parents house, but mom and I seriously have so much fun together, I was happy to have her!

We did a little shopping, cleaning and redecorating! I have been in my townhouse for about ten months now and love it. However, there were some decorating decisions we made when I moved in just to hold over until I could do what I really wanted. Remember when I did my 'welcome to my crib' and I never showed you my bedroom or office? Yes, that's why, lol. I promise I didn't forget you and your curiosity, lovies.

Long story short, this weekend my mom and I managed to create the most lovely bedroom and office! I am so so happy with how they turned out. Enough reading, want to see some pictures?? I thought so....


New white bedding from TJ Maxx for $30!

I got new lamps at TJ Maxx, too for $20 a piece.

My grandmother's dresser.

I used the monogrammed shams and accent pillows from my previous bedding.

I love monograms!

The other lamp, birds, and a new bud vase. I want to get side tables and put the lamps on each side of the bed. One step at a time....

Just some little details....


Now onto the office! Where the blogging magic happens!

Love! This picture doesn't do it justice!

Remember the little leopard painted accent table?

Yes, that is a leopard background. It matches my....


Comfy love seat.

I got the corkboard this weekend at K Mart for $10. I've had the chandelier art for a while. I got them on clearance at TJ Maxx for $11 each.

Little details in the office....


What do you think? I love it so much! I am head over heels for both rooms! As if I haven't already shared enough pictures, I also have two, yes TWO, OOTD!

1. Thursday's outfit:

Dress: Target, Bag: Boutique

Belt: Express, Earrings: Claire's, Bracelet: Steinmart, Shoes: Steve Madden


2. Friday's outfit

Dress: Belk

Necklace: Forever 21, Ring: Mark, Earrings: Boutique, Sandals: Old Navy


I also made a few, ahem, purchases over the weekend. I will share them later today or tomorrow.

Love you, sweeties! Happy Monday!

Everything's just GORGEOUS! And where did the storage piece at the foot of your bed come from? I feel like that would go PERFECTLY in our bedroom, and who wouldn't love an extra surface for displaying pictures?
