All photos from our weekend were taken from Instagram.  Follow me:  here

Friday afternoon Hudson and I went to Vintage Market Days with my mom.  I don’t know how I thought that was a good idea being on the Contentment Challenge.  I had no will power!  I came away with a wooden growth chart, a paper mache letter H for Hudson’s room, and a silver tray.  I clearly felt disappointed after but am trying not to be too hard on myself.  I’m simply hitting the restart button and planning to avoid temptation!

The only photo I took.  Isn’t the Lick Your Lips Mini Donuts food truck just the cutest thing?

Friday night and Saturday morning I attended the Chazown experience at church.

The Chazown experience couldn’t have come at a better time with the Making Things Happen Conference next month.  I have been a little terrified going to such an event without a specific goal or dream in mind.  Now, I feel I have a truer sense of my purpose and can’t wait to see it come to fruition.  The Chazown experience will be coming back to my church in the Spring.  I have volunteered to help as a Veteran so please let me know if you are interested.  Would be happy to give you more info as it draws near.  Or if you’re not in Oklahoma they do offer Chazown online (click the link above).

Friday, I also helped chalk some signs for Ashley & Ryan’s wedding.  This was before I had cleaned it up a little…but you get the idea.

Saturday evening the couple were married on a rooftop on Cherry Street.  Everything turned out just beautifully!


 

Sunday I started the Advocare 24 Day Challenge.  Have been anxiously awaiting this day — so ready to feel healthy, energetic, and lose a few pounds in the meantime.

The rest of our day was spent lounging around the house and then an evening church service.   I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!



Linking up again with Darci, Christina, Liz, and Natasha for Five on Friday.

THE GOOD LIFE BLOG

 

 

1.  Sugarboo Art – Designer, Holly Mathis, has helped us with five spaces in our home.  We are in the midst of finishing up our office by adding some art (will share images of the rest of the room soon).  We also purchased the “Remember when” piece for the little nook as you enter our bedroom.

2.  Console Table – The console table that my hubby purchased for me arrived this week.  Holly is in the midst of picking out some lamps, baskets, and other pieces to help me style it up.

Formal Dining Room with console table, farmhouse table, chandelier, white wingback chairs, and refinished china cabinet

3.  Hall of Fame – A little bit of a back story first…my husband I met through the world of skating.  Makes since now as to why we would own a roller rink, right?  My mom and Aunt skated competitively growing up so my sister and I skated competitively as well.  The same with my husband’s family — his Dad, Mom, Sister, and him.  We relocated from Kansas to Oklahoma so that my sister could take from his parents after I had quit skating.  Although my father-in-law has retired from coaching my mother-in-law still does.  They came to visit us from the national championships where they were inducted into the Coaches Hall of Fame.  It is definitely deserved!

 

4.  End of summer sales – The end of summer sales have been so dangerous but useful in stocking up for next year’s items.  Can’t beat 40% off the sale price of J Crew Swimsuits for Ella.

5.  Wedding Planning – The trip to Rosemary Beach is on hold until next year.  My friend is still getting married, however, has decided to go the local route so that more of her friends & family could join in on the celebration.  Went location scouting with her this week and the place she has picked is kind of amazing.  It’s a rooftop that is typically used as an outdoor yoga studio.  Dying over the double sided fireplace and also the bistro lights that they have recently strung (not pictured).  She is a fantastic party planner (see her 30th birthday party here, her son’s birthday parties here and here) so I can’t wait to see what she does with the space.

Have a great weekend everyone!
