Weekend Part 1: Nobi Public House + DIY Closet Makeover

Friday after work, Andrew and I met up with some friends at Nobi Public House. It was literally the best hole-in-the-wall restaurant we had ever been too! I can't believe how many times I've passed this restaurant and yet never thought about eating there. I loved the atmosphere and decorations too! 

NobiPublic house is all about craft beer and Vietnamese-fusion cuisine. Our waiter was so knowledgeable about all the beer on tab and which we would prefer based off the beer we normally drink. They had sooo many craft beer on tap and also in the bottle that it really made it hard to decided which one to try. 

Andrew and I were STARVING so we decided to order a few entrees and just share them so we could try a little of everything. It was so hard to choose what to order even though the menu was simple because everything sounded sooo good. 

We ordered spring  rolls, chicken noodle soup, fried rice, and stir fry noodles. It was all amazing. I seriously cannot wait to go back. If you are in the Houston area for any amount of time, you must try Nobi Public House! 

After dinner we all met up in Midtown to go dancing at Howl at the Moon Houston. It is a live music bar with tons of high-energy! We also didn't have to pay cover since we were military/military spouse which was awesome! 

We didn't get home until after 1 am... which is why we slept in until 10 am and wasted our morning away! Booo. I seriously hate sleeping past 8 am. Anyways, we brushed our teeth(thank goodness) and headed to Starbucks to get some coffee so we could start our day! 

Ugh, espresso shots can completely fix all my problems. We took Frankie to Doggie Day Camp for the day so we could do things around the house. I can't believe we have only been in our new home for just a week! We have seriously gotten so much accomplished and we haven't taken a single day off work. 

We have been looking at closet organizers for the last week trying to decide which way to go in regards to style and color. Finally, we figured that this house is just an investment, not a forever home, so let's keep it simple. After a few trips to Home Depot and looking online at reviews, we decided to purchase the ClosetMaid Model#7032 for my closet! 

It was the cheapest we could find with decent reviews. It was $89  plus we got 10% off because we are military! We also bought two shelves for $12.98 each plus our discount to create more storage for my closet. Let’s face it, a girl always need more room for her clothes! So we roughly spent about $100 bucks to redo this part of my closet. 

I also wanted Andrew to build me a huge shoe rack. But I didn't want those cube storage boxes because they really ruin the form of your shoes!  I did some research and found a shoe shelf kit at Home Depot. We bought 8 Shoe Shelves for $13.48 each. We also had to buy the Hang Track to use as the main support for the shelf track brackets. The Hang Track only cost $8.22 and we only needed one!  The Shelf Track Brackets were $15.44 each and we had to buy two of course! Lastly, we bought a wire shelf to add to the top of the shoe rack for $13.20. So we roughly spent about $160 to build the shoe rack. The good thing is that it holds mine AND Andrew's shoes so well worth the cost!

I can honestly say that Andrew is a true perfectionist. It doesn't matter when he realizes that he did something wrong, he will completely take everything apart just to fix something that most people would say "Oh well, it's too late now".  He isn't afraid to do anything because he knows that he will be able to figure it out some way... some how. I truly love him for that. 

Andrew also replaced our sink in our bathroom vanity this weekend! He also took out our downstairs bathroom vanity and is working to replace it. So we literally spent all day Saturday starting and finishing small projects on our new home. 

What did you do this weekend?!
