Weekend Warriors

This weekend was the perfect mesh of getting things done and relaxing!

I almost always wake up before Blake on the weekends, which is perfect for me because I like to lay in bed and play on my phone for a while before actually getting up. So the mornings were spend being lazy and lounging in bed for a while, then we were up and ready to tackle all the world’s problems…..er maybe not, but we did get a lot done.

Saturday we had a couple errands to run and things to pick up from various stores.

CaptureHow does this always happen? I’ve decided that home improvement warehouses like Lowe’s and Home Depot should have Ladies Lounge Rooms where tired and hungry pregnant wives can relax while their husbands consider all 500 blades available for purchase. They would probably make more money, because then all of us wives wouldn’t be rushing the men out the door. Think about it, a couple of comfy chairs, a selection of K-cups, and a big screen playing HGTV….yep, that’s a moneymaker.  Just remember you heard it here first. 

Eventually, we made it home and got started on our big project! Following these directions, we made this blanket ladder!

blanket ladderIt was pretty stinkin’ easy and looks great! It’s very thick and chunky which makes it looks pretty cool. And oh so cheap! The wood cost around $6 and we had it cut at Home Depot for us. We bought a “miss tinted” bucket of paint for $5. And now we finally have a place for blankets in the living room.

Also on my list this weekend was painting the bookshelf for Miss Liz’s nursery. Its not quite done but almost there! I think I’ll be able to finish it up tonight. Then I just need to hang a few pictures, and find place for a couple more things to go, and her bedroom will done! I confess, I sat in my rocking chair in there for a few minute this morning before getting ready.

Saturday night, I also picked the meat off the turkey bones and cooked up a bunch of meals. I made turkey noodle soup for dinner, then two rice & turkey casseroles and a potpie to freeze. We will save those for when the baby comes.

Sunday was more of a relaxing day. We slept late, then went to watch the Seahawks beat the Rams at the clubhouse where Blake’s parents live. It was a lot of fun, even for me who doesn’t about football one tiny bit.

Then we headed home for dinner, and well…..

Pregnant wife + tipsy husband = Subway & froyo for dinner

It was delicious. 2013-12-29 19.29.25I had only the good stuff. Vanilla froyo with white chocolate chips, crushed oreos, graham cracker crumbs, a few peices of Reese’ PB cup, fudge and marshmallow topping plus lots of whip cream. MMMM. I wish they were open for breakfast! Only kidding.

And with that I’m off to start my Monday! Kia woke up at 5 am, so this should be a fun day.

Tell me about your weekend!
