Over the Weekend

We live in the most perfect Southern town. It's a college town, for those of you who don't know, but it's really so much more than that. I'm kind of obsessed with it, and with every season that comes around, I fall more in love. Spring brings blooms at every corner, lots of balcony sitting on our perfect little quaint Square, and plenty of lazy afternoons. Spring also brings one of my favorite weekends of the year--the Double Decker Arts and Music Festival. Our Square transforms into a sea of people and tents full of artwork, pottery, and the like.

It was my weekend to work, so after working Friday night, I slept for a few hours and made myself wake up in time to enjoy an hour or two on the Square--fear of missing out, I guess. It was hot and crowded, but it made me love our little town even more. There's not a whole lot that makes me happier!

Sunday was a little more low-key--rainy, lazy day. Except it was my husband's birthday, so we celebrated. First with home cooked breakfast for the birthday boy, then an afternoon of Ole Miss baseball on the radio (hooray for the sweep against KY!) and Harry Potter on TV. 

My sister, brother-in-law, and niece came over for a low-key dinner--chicken enchilada casserole (recipe on the blog later this week!) and some birthday cake. Sweet celebrations for my sweet husband. 

We're supposed to be getting bad weather across the South later this afternoon, so say a prayer for my sanity. I have my wine and flashlights prepared. Happy Monday! Xoxo

P.S. You may want to stop by Living in Yellow for a little giveaway today...something fun to start off your week :)
