A pillow, a trip, and a hike...

***All of the pictures included in this post are no good, very bad iPhone pics.  Sorry in advance!***

Let's start with the pillow.  I have had this Dwell Studio fabric for a while now, but while visiting my parents this past week, my mom helped show me (again) how to make a corded pillow cover.


After a quick trip to IKEA on Saturday, I snagged a feather insert, and I hand-stitched her up.  Here she is on the sofa prior to stuffing.  A better picture to come...


As I mentioned, Andy and I headed to IKEA Saturday morning to snag a few items I needed (curtain panels, pillow inserts, etc.).  It was our quickest trip yet!  We have finally figured out the shortcut to the marketplace, and knowing where everything is now, we grabbed ONLY the things on my list and headed to check out.  But before checking out, I finally spotted the red Expedit line I had seen on Pinterest (but had yet to find in the store).  So fun and glossy!


We also made a stop at The Varsity to eat while we were down that way.  I have a love/hate relationship with The Varsity.  I'm scared to order because they yell, "What are ya having?!?"...and my brain seems to go blank with the pressure (so Andy orders for me).  We also always manage to go before Braves games/sporting events, so it is super crowded.  However, the food is artery-clogging good, so we can't resist.  


I finally tried a fried peach pie while there...SO GOOD!  They are homemade and completely delicious.  Will be getting one of these as my side with a burger from now on!

On Sunday, we headed over to Berry for another hike we had heard good things about.  We hiked up to the House of Dreams...


It is a steady incline the entire way up to the top, but it's nice to get to walk downhill the whole way back!  This lighthouse sits next to the house...


And there were some swings to enjoy next to the house as well.


HUGE swinging tree...


We took a picture while sitting on a Notting Hill-ish bench by the house...


See what I mean?


The views from up here were pretty awesome...

A fun weekend!  More details to come on our IKEA loot and the finished pillow!
