Weekend Finds- World Market Shower Curtains & Towels

I have always had a bit of an obsession with shower curtains and towels (strange, I know). I think they add so much color and character to boring, dull bathrooms. Well, I wandered into Cost Plus World Market over the weekend just to browse and I was walking thru the bath section and came across the cutest shower curtains and towels that I have ever seen. I wanted to buy all of them! Here were my favorites:

If you don't have this store in your city you are missing out! But, lucky for you, you can shop online! =) I could go on and on about all the other awesome stuff I found that I wanted to buy. This store can be dangerous for your wallet!
Happy Shopping!

Weekend Wrap Up

We spent A LOT of time at home this weekend. It was our first weekend we were in town together at our new house. We did a lot of unpacking, organizing and decorating. And we did a lot of shopping at Pottery Barn, Bed Bath & Beyod and Target! I swear as soon as we make a little more progress on the house I will post a lot of pictures! :)

We had my father-in-law's really awesome, really fast Audi R10 parked in our garage over the weekend so we just HAD to take it for a little drive and out to dinner one night. This car is has a Lamborghini engine in it. The trunk is at the front of the car and the engine is at the rear. People were trying to race us and when we parked at the restaurant people were taking pictures of it. HA!

Date night at Mi Cocina! We LOVE this restaurant so much! Their margaritas are dangerous...they are called Mambo Taxi's and you are only allowed to order 3. I have never been able to drink more than 2! It was a much needed date night...our schedules have been so opposite and crazy lately and all of our time and energy has gone into our home so it was nice to get out and have a little fun :)

Hope ya'll had a fabulous weekend!!

{The Best Time of Year in Houston}

Happy Go Texan Day (and Happy Friday to all you non-Texan's)! Yesterday kicked off the best time of year in Houston...RODEO SEASON!

It all started last night with what we call "Cook-Off Weekend." It is basically a TON of tents set up in the parking lot of Reliant Stadium...all with tons of food and drinks, music and dancing. You have to have wrist-bands to get into each tent and sometimes it is really hard to get wrist-bands, especially to the most popular tents. Sunday is the Conoco Phillips Rodeo Run. There is a 5k, 10k and big parade. Cook-Off goes through most of the weekend, then starts 3 weeks of concerts and actual rodeo events. Every night, starting Tuesday night, there is a different concert. This year some of the groups that will be here are- Lady A, Alabama, Kid Rock, Blake Shelton, Reba, Miranda Lambert, Enrique Iglesias and so many more. The here is a livestock area where you can see animals, attend auctions and even see baby (animals) being born. There is a really fun carnival filled with a lot of fun rides and the most fried, fatty food you can find! Like I said- BEST.TIME.OF.YEAR.
