I Struck Gold!

The title of this post should be "I Struck Gold!...And Other Random Musings" because this post is quite the random assortment of my weekend.  So brace yourself and bear with this all-over-the-place post!

Happy Monday everyone--did y'all have a good weekend?

Today is my first day watching Cuties A and B for the summer and I couldn't be more excited.  If you're new to the blog, click here to read about the Cuties.

Remember my Gold Digger Post from oh so long ago?  Well I'm glad to say that I am no longer a gold digger!  I struck gold when I bought a new pair of Jacks last weekend.

I love their shine!

I've had them for 8 days now and think I've worn them for 7 out of the 8!

Last night's outfit!

Aren't they lovely?

Now on to the rest of the randomness of this post!

Friday afternoon I was out with my dad running errands and he put on the following song asking me to guess who it was.  I had no clue, but thought it sounded kind of country/Shania-esque.

What do y'all think?  Are you as shocked as I am that this Lady Gaga?!  I actually love the song and am planning to add it to my iTunes!

Friday night we watched Just Go With It.  I have always loved Adam Sandler and also love Jennifer Aniston so the movie did not disappoint.  It was funny and cute, but I did think had a lot of sexual humor/references that could have been left out. 

Saturday morning my cousins, CAE and CJE, and I went to a Mary Kay event called Makeovers and Muffins.  My good friend sells Mary Kay and the event was fun!  I'll post about it later this week.

Saturday afternoon I went on the hunt for some Euro pillows.  My Garnet Hill shams (which I posted about here) came in.  The quilt was on back-order and should come in this week.  Here is a sneak peek of the pillows and I can't wait to reveal the final look once the quilt comes in.

When I get the quilt I plan to put it on the bed and put my current spread at the bottom of the bed and current shams in front of the two Euro shams.

Saturday night I babysat and the last hour or so I got the most horrible migraine and was just feeling really out of sorts.  When I got home I took a nice, hot bath in my parents HUGE jacuzzi (it could probably hold 4 adults easily) and munched on some of my Lilly animal crackers.  I'm only sharing this tidbit of the weekend with you, because I figured my fellow Lilly lovers would get a kick out of the thought of me eating Lilly animal crackers in the tub!  I came out feeling refreshed!

Lilly and a hot bath..what more could you want?

Sunday we decided to grill out.  My dad is a really good cook and always comes up with the most creative meals.  Last night we had hamburgers that he put chopped up onions in and seasoned with garlic, salt, pepper, and Worcestershire sauce.  He also cooked a zucchini, squash, and onion side.  I made baked macaroni and cheese.  I also baked the S'more Cookies Glitterista posted about here.  It turned out to be the perfect night to cook out--it was cool with a nice breeze!

Pink Lemonade I made

Baked Mac-N-Cheese
I will be posting the recipe Friday!

My plate!
CJE let us use the cutest bamboo straws she got when she went to Costa Rica for Spring Break last year!

My dad's burger was prettier so I snapped a pic of that too!

While we were eating, a lightning bug decided to join us and landed in my mom's hair!

Can you see him?

S'More cookie for dessert!

After dinner, I snapped a few pictures around our yard!

Lillies have always been one of my favorite flowers and these are gorgeous!

Isn't this little guy cute?

pretty pink and purple pansies!

Was that enough randomness for you?  How was your weekend?

If you've made it this far in the post, I have two last things!
  1. Remember last week I realized how close I was to 300 followers and also the 3 month mark?  As you all know, I made a little goal when I realized it, to get 300 followers in 3 months.  I'm so close, just 7 followers away!  Please, if you're new to the blog or a normal reader that hasn't yet decided to follow, please do!
  2. Also, remember last week I made a Sundresses & Smiles Facebook page.  Do you also remember the embarrassing pouty picture I posted on Friday?  Well that picture was just one of a little photo-shoot to find a pout worthy of the blog.  In order to entice you to check out the Facebook page, I added a much more embarrassing pout picture on Facebook.  So click here to check it out! 
Have a Happy Monday!
