As of lately...

I realize weekend updates are supposed to happen on Sunday/Monday but I was too excited about my glitter tumbler, had to show y'all that asap. 

So this past weekend my Papaw had a procedure done to his heart, I won't even begin to try and explain it but it was kinda scary. He lives about an hour away from me right now but since he is a veteran he goes to the VA hospital up in Asheville, about 2.5 hours away. Friday morning he was scheduled for his procedure and had some blood issues so he didn't actually go back for it until about 3pm. All went well and everything was successful and Jeremy and I headed to Asheville to see him and be with family for the weekend, to celebrate another day with the coolest papaw ever! duh.

Friday evening my mom decided to get a hotel up in Asheville so we didn't have to drive back and forth from his house to the hospital all weekend, best idea ever. 
You see, my mom is a master of persuasion, sweet talker, great convincer, etc. She talked her way into the hotel upgrading her to a penthouse suite, for the price of a regular room. They were brand new, not even finished. 
My mom is the shit. 

I was so in love with the decor of this hotel, I want to copy everything. 

Obviously Jeremy was loving it too... #danceparty

There was only a master suite so Jeremy kindly offered to sleep on the sleeper sofa, only thing was it that it was brand new, still in the plastic. The hotel staff couldn't figure out how to open the sleeper mattress part for anything. So mom and Jeremy took it upon themselves to figure it out...
They eventually did, had to remove wires holding all the parts together for shipping. um duh, we knew that. 

and this chair?!? OMG, get in my home. 

Mom & I the next morning after breakfast & mimosas on the porch!

Awesome glass shower with a serious view of Asheville...

...while you're showering off, or showing off?!?

My step-grandma can be a serious pain in the butt so she wouldn't let us come to the hospital the next morning, she wanted to be the one to take care of Papaw, not us. Whatever, we just decided to shop around Asheville!
So glad we did, I found some freaking cute stuff!


Papaw was released from the hospital Saturday afternoon and we headed back to Hickory to enjoy time with him and enjoy a little food! It was so nice to just spend time with family, I don't see Papaw enough and I need to make a point to do it more often! He was in great spirits and seems to be doing much better!
Thank you to all who prayed for him! 

 Sunday my mom kept pushing me to come back home because she had a "surprise" for us. As much as I just wanted to be back in Charlotte and relaxing I knew it really had to be important for how bad she was pushing us! 
And it was! 

Paul purchased a lake place Friday morning! It needs some serious updating and a good deep clean from our cleaning lady, but it also came with a boat so I could not be more excited! It's so cute and perfect, just down the road from their new house! Can't wait to fix it up and have our first big party next year! 


All in all it was slightly stressful but relaxing weekend! I am so thankful for my family and I could not be any more blessed! 

How was y'all's weekend?
