The perfect double date night | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

The perfect double date night




Wes + D working on their cute planter




We needed some weight to hold down the boards while Jason nailed haha Darian was perfect for the job!


Darian + me



Weston hahaha ^

On Friday we went on a double date with our friends Darian + Weston. They had the best idea ever and it was perfect for people like us. We did a double date project night! So basically we all like to make things and we decided to go to dinner and then go to Wes's dad's shop to build projects. Weston makes super cool longboards (check him out here) and we make signs so we all clearly have a thing for making stuff. Literally the perfect date idea!

D and I went and got pedicures together before and it was awesome! The lady that did my nails was so nice and we bonded over the bachelorette (which is on tonight. k Chad and his creepy whistle??? What?!!) After that, J and I met up with them at Olive Garden. The salad and breadsticks get me every time and obviously I got stuffed up on those before our dinner even came. And then I ate most of the dinner. Pregnant probs. ;) Afterwards we headed out to Lowes to get wood for our projects, Jason and I made our headboard  (posting a tutorial on that soon because it was SO EASY.... mostly because Jason did 99% of the work) and Weston and Darian made a cute long planter to plant veggies and stuff. 

They finished their cute planter but since I was like 0 help, (because I was already super tired and carrying around a watermelon in my belly) we finished building it but didn't stain it yet! I'm so so so excited to get it stained and in our room! I already got the sheets I wanted and a few of the throw pillows to make it cute so it will be fun to see everything when it's all done. Expect to see more posts like this in the future because I vote that project night becomes a regular occurrence :)

  9. I don't think I commented on the head board thing (I know I read it, but that's about as far as I get lately lol) but show pics of the finished product!!! We don't have a headboard..and I feel like I cannot be a real grown up until I have on. It bothers me lol. "Someday when we get a house" is basically what we say about everything. And this couple is super cute. (Is that weird to say lol?) She looks like she could be your sister!

    1. hahah we must be twins because I'm the same! I read stuff and then I'm like "I need to remember to comment" and then usually forget... oops. I've wanted a headboard for so long and I hate dropping so much $$$ on stuff like that when it's easy to make it for so much cheaper. and not weird at all, haha I totally agree, they're so cute! i WISH she was my sister!
