Weekend Recap: Yard work and Wedding Gifts

On Friday night I went to a co-ed bridal shower for my friend Melissa and her fiance Justin.  I didn't stay too late because for some reason, I was tired from my first full week back at work after having two weeks off (pathetic, I know).  

Kevin and I went and saw Man of Steel on Saturday afternoon and we both enjoyed the movie.  I had a coupon for a free popcorn since my birthday is tomorrow (Tuesday), so that made it even better :)  After the movie we stopped at Target and spent a gift card from the wedding on a couple hoses, sprinklers, and some other things for our yard.  It's been really hot with very little rain lately, so our yard needed some water.

I put some of our bridal shower and wedding gifts in our front yard (finally) and love they way they look!

Outdoor solar lanterns from Target (here) which were a wedding gift.
Pathway lights from Target (here) which were a bridal shower gift.
Needs a little more, something taller maybe on the front porch, but I like the way it's starting to look.
Love the pathway lights in the front flower beds.
I think my front door needs a wreath...I better get on that!
I love the way the lanterns look at night!
We also got a really cool golf organizer as a wedding gift that we put together on Saturday.  The pictures aren't the greatest, because I had to take them around my car that was parked in the garage, but you get the idea:

From Bed, Bath, & Beyond (here)
Has shelves to store smaller items such as golf balls or shoes.
Sunday morning I went grocery shopping and then came home and did some cleaning and put away some more wedding gifts.  Last week we put together this entry table that we got as a wedding gift from my Uncle.

Table is from Target (here).  Don't mind all the junk on it...

I can't wait to style it.  The candle holder on the table was a wedding gift too.  That's as far as I got...put the table together and put it where I want it.  I plan to move the vase that's on the floor to a different room and I have some ideas of how I want to style the table, but just haven't got that far yet.

We also installed this under cabinet wine glass holder that we received as a wedding gift.  I freed up a lot of cabinet space by hanging my wine glasses.  And I think it looks cool too!

Overall it was a pretty productive weekend in our house.  My parents are coming over tomorrow for my birthday and to watch the baseball All-Star game.  I hope you had a great weekend and happy Monday!
