The Weekend In Photos

by Jen on November 18, 2012

I had such a nice weekend with a great balance of downtime and fun/friend/yoga time. Here’s a look in photos.

Friday night dinner was seared sea scallops with an herb wine butter sauce, pine nut cous cous and sauteed greens.

Lots of hot tea with my ingenuiTEA pot. It’s such an easy way to use loose tea. I have quite the selection going.

A pedicure, pizza and cookies on Saturday evening.

Y2 Yoga teacher and staff party…including sing-offs and competitions for who could hold balancing poses the longest to win iPods!

Brunch at Whole Foods after teaching Sunday morning yoga. Class was so wonderful this morning and I left full of love and smiles.

Oh my god. I can’t even deal with this anymore.

A good run with this cute one. It was one of those runs that just felt effortless. I loved the overcast day and crisp temperatures.

:)

Hope it’s been a great weekend!

Your weekend looks like perfection to me. I love the Y2 yoga picture, you look like you all love each other. so nice! Don’t stress over the paint. Look at the brochures with finished rooms in them (if you haven’t already,) it really helps. It’s kind of like a hair cut, it’ll grow (or you can re-paint.) I always consult Pottery Barn catalogs, they have the best colors.

What a great weekend! I love scallops, it’s my default dinner out item, that looks fabulous, did you make it? The paint swatches look terrifying, I’m glad it’s not me haha. Also, Sullie is too freaking adorable, just stop it!

Hi Jen! You have probably gotten a ton of paint color suggestions but thought I would offer Benjamin Moore’s ‘moonshine.’ it’s the most perfect soothing shade of gray and it goes with everything. Good luck!!

As someone who just finished painting our entire house, go with a neutral color and if you want some pizzazz, do a one wall accent color that your eye has been going back to every time you look through your hundreds of swatches. Just make the decision then have a glass of wine and be glad that it’s done!

Those scallops look amazing! As for your painting dilemma, I can feel your pain. I moved into a new townhouse in August, and I was so indecisive with the paint that I decided to go with white. Plain white. It was actually the best decision! I feel so relaxed in my white bedroom :) Good luck!!

Haha, I love how conflicted you are over painting – it’s only paint, Jen! You can change it! Looks like you had a nice weekend, paint choices aside :)

It’s not good to look at your post when I’m hungry! Your scallops look delicious! And I’m very intrigued with your Ingenuitea Teapot. I drink looseleaf tea on a daily basis, thank you Teavana, and like how this tea pot seems to work. Amazon here I come!
