Crazy crazy weekend!!
Now that Nate's time at home is quickly drawing to a close (yeah!!) we are working in hyper-speed to finish all projects that we had wanted to get done during this period.
Our house is a little bit of a fixer-upper as I believe I've mentioned before. I don't tend to show too many photos of it because, well, we're right in the middle of it. I don't mind when people come over because you can see quite obviously that work is being done and so the unsightliness of it can be forgiven. But actually taking pictures. . .well, that embarrasses me.
Especially since there is not a single wall in our house that is square and not a patch of floor that is level. If you've ever done any sort of remodeling, then you know that often means quite a bit of jimmy-rigging. We tend to walk away from each phase of a project saying "Well, I guess that's as good as we can expect to get it!"
And then follow through with a caulk gun.
This weekend we tore down the crown molding in the living room (that we don't have enough of once we added a closet to the room) and put it up in the bathroom. It looks pretty good, but definitely needs that caulk gun before I show pictures!!!
I put on pretty coats of blue paint to big sister's dresser and am poised and ready to distress it as soon as a moment comes open.
My mom and I had some girl time at Anthropologie and I walked away with a great shirt and sweater!
Did some party planning, scoured craft and fabric stores for supplies and put my Mom to work when we got home—I was busy painting!!
We also took my Mom to my favorite sushi & thai place. She doesn't like sushi. But I figured she has just never had the RIGHT sushi.
She ate it.
She didn't hate it.
But she still doesn't like sushi.
Oh well, I got to eat it!! (and she did like the pad thai, so she didn't go hungry)
Overall, good weekend. I'm a bit tired from it, but we got a lot done and spent time with people we love. Isn't that what it's all about?
(pictures will come. I promise!)
