Weekend Recap

Another whirlwind weekend down in the books for us. 

Thankfully day light savings is to thank for me getting 15 extra minutes to get this blog down....or up?

Friday around 4pm, we headed to Crystal Lake Brewery to cheers Aunt Peggy.

 It worked out perfectly, we saw a lot of her old friends, ordered pizzas, stayed distracted and just enjoyed each others company on a not so fun day.

Leo started another little cold, so Joel took him home right at 7pm, but I stayed a little extra longer and then went to have a glass of wine with my mom before calling it a night. 

Saturday morning was quite lovely. We had nothing to do, I stayed in bed for two cups of coffee worth!, and then gave Leo a long bubble bath in our big tub.

We did a few things around the house, hanging drapes turned into a big fight (hanging things is not good for us!), but we got what we needed to done and we are both loving it.

Seeing little additions to the house each week is really fun. I keep falling in love with everything more...funny how drapes, or a new tray, or whatever make a really big difference. 

We were supposed to take Leo to a birthday party Saturday night but he was so gunky I decided to keep him home and just send Joel. It worked out because Joel picked up thai on his way home, and I fell asleep on the couch before 10. 

Sunday morning we woke up and got right out to the 9am church service, and then we had Joel's brother's family over for coffee and donuts. 

It was so fun to watch Leo interact with all of his "big" cousins. He adores them. And donuts. 

Pretty much as soon as Joel's family left, mine walked in.

We had appetizers at our house and then moved over to my mom to celebrate St. Patty's day and a few March birthdays.

I woke up with a stuffy nose and scratchy throat....along with four inches of snow on the ground, so we're keeping it low key today. We need to venture out to the grocery store so I can get a big tub of soup made, but that's about it as far as activities.

Well, that, and the Bachelor finale!


  1. You aren't alone - Kevin and I can't accomplish home improvement activities well either! Bachelor!!!!!

  2. I cannot believe that y'all had snow after such a nice week last week! Hopefully this Monday morning treats you well! Glad you got to stay a bit longer and have that extra glass of wine ;)!

  3. Your house seems to be coming along so well! My husband and I have all but given up on decorating because we just can't agree on anything. Plus I'm the worst at making decisions!
