Weekend Update

You guys. You guys! YOU GUYS! YOU GUYYYYYYSSSSS! THE BLUES WON! WE BEAT THE BLACKHAWKS LAST NIGHT IN GAME 7 OF THE FIRST ROUND OF THE PLAYOFFS!

I’ve written about the Blues a lot here on LivingwithaBoy.com, most notably on Being a Blues Fan 101, but I tell you what…nothing feels as good as beating the defending Stanley Cup Champions in Game 7 during NHL playoffs.

We had friends over on Thursday night to watch Game 5, where we thought we’d clinch, and I made everyone in attendance (including Gracie) wear a variety of my Blues apparel. Welcome to the Deitsch household!

I’ll try to stop talking about hockey now but it’s the playoffs so y’all might just have to put up with me until (hopefully) June!

Other happenings around these parts? We got our Derby outfits! We’re going with my parents and our friends Martha and Mark and I’m so, so excited to experience our first Derby. I’m especially thrilled that my dress has pockets! #priorities

Wait ’til you see the hat I DIYed. That deserves its own post. 😉

I just hope our weather on Derby day is similar to what we’ve been experiencing. It’s been so nice here! We went to Beckley Creek Park over the weekend with the doggies and went on a nice couple-mile hike. They were in heaven!

Oh yeah and, GO BLUUUUUUES!

Curtains Complete!

Hey hey heyyyyy!

This weekend was, as usual, way too short. On Friday, we went to dinner with Kirsten and Kevin. Guess where we went. No, really guess.

Surprised? Probably not. We can’t help ourselves it’s just so good. I got the Good Ole burger again, but (my) Kevin switched things up and got their fish tacos which came with Mexican corn on the cob – basically heaven in your mouth.

It was Kirsten and (her) Kevin’s first time – I think they’re hooked.

After dinner, we went to B-dubs to watch the Blues game. They lost, and I cried myself a river. Only after eating a second dinner which consisted of wings. #ieatwhenimsadokay?

In other news (possibly the most exciting news to come out of the Bladdick/Deitsch household for the past few weeks) WE HAVE CURTAINS!!!!!

Hobby Lobby “found the missing fabric” we ordered (what.ever.) and we picked it up on Saturday.

Hello pretty new curtains and GOODBYE TRASH BAG DRAPES!

Since we moved in, I have been HATING on these massive windows because of how big of a pain in the arse they are (having to make your own curtains vs. shelling out thousands of dollars for custom drapes), but with these crisp, white, flowy curtains, I’m obsessed. And the trees in our front yard provide the perfect amount of privacy where I feel comfortable leaving them open all day, only to close them at night.

(And thank you Kirsten and Kevin for letting us borrow your iron and ironing board!)

We added another addition to our house – a dog bed for Grace! Now that we have our new couch, new chair AND new bed, we’re trying to prevent her from getting on the furniture.

Our friends Jess & Chris (and Calie & Nita) from Des Moines mailed Grace a bunch of homemade cookies today and she LOVED them! Here’s a video of us opening the package. She’s a silly little thing.

And lastly, today we booked our plane tickets out to San Francisco for our friends Jeannie & Brett’s wedding in September! And I booked mine, Katie and Jackie’s hotel for Jess and Jason’s wedding in July! I have weddings on the brain so I’m off to see what’s left on our big to-do list. I’m feeling a little inspired. 🙂
