WE have been super busy this week. We had planned weeks ago to go visit some very dear friends in Alabama and go to the zoo. We have been planning for weeks to see each other and things kept falling through. So, we finally picked a date and we were going. Then, it rained. So, we cancelled the trip - I mean, the zoo isn't any fun if it rains, right?
Well, I get a kick in my step (is that the right phrasing?) Who knows...
I make a list. It's a big list. It's a fun list, work list, honey-do list, everything we (I) wanted to accomplish while Kraig is off of work. I left little room for rest and school work, my bad :( I am feeling real bad right about now. Although, he did get to play golf one day and play basketball multiple times. It's ok. He's had fun.
Well, Monday rolled around and when we were supposed to be driving to Alabama, we get the word that our friends are coming here! YAY!!!! Nothing like a wonderful change of plans. I was pumped!
So, I get an even bigger kick in my step and put our Spring Break list in to overdrive and we get to work. The house was a disaster and the spare room needed an overhaul, well, let's be honest, the whole house did. I also had a few projects I had started and needed to finish. We started around 11 on Monday and didn't stop until we met our friends on Tuesday for lunch. We got the majority of my list done on Monday.
I needed Kraig to help hang some family photos....
I finished painting my new storage box for under the T.V. It also hides some ugly chords that hang under the T.V. This was such an easy and practically free project. Thank you Pinterest.
We finished painting my coffee bar area. Excuse the bottom drawer - it is getting fixed and/or replaced.
Sorry for the ugly glares from the lamps but this is a finished picture with the painted box (under the bottom shelf).
We also cleaned the whole house and moved furniture around and then we crashed for the night.
Once our friends came, we were able to enjoy their company. We also had some other friends in town and we invited everyone over for a taco night. We had a blast talking old stories and laughing. I cherish those moments. I miss my friends from college so much sometimes. I miss those times.
On Wednesday, we had a big youth bowling competition. The girls lost. That's all I can say about that.
Thursday and Friday was a blur of family times, running errands, getting stuff ready for a yard sale, more cleaning, golf, basketball, and keeping a teething baby happy.
Tonight and tomorrow if full of more family and Easter festivities. :)
Tomorrow though, I hope we can rest a little bit before Kraig goes back to school. I have so enjoyed him being home this week. I will surely miss him when school starts back.
Here are some pics of Rett from this crazy week.... ENJOY...
O we also got a new car last week, Rett and I are playing in the mirrors waiting on Kraig while he test drove the new car.
Rett loved the play place at the mall...
He wasn't sure about the grass at all...right after this he started crying and wouldn't go back down on the grass....he had to stay in my lap (I didn't mind at all)
Rett and his Gpa at church tonight. I'm not sure Rett understood the message, we are still talking about it with him. :)
At dinner, he played peek-a-boo with his Gpa across the table.
Next week, Rett's Honey is on spring break, so I am sure she will come visit and we may make a new list...maybe a relaxation list from our spring break '13 list....are we tired, or what!?!?
Hope you all enjoyed your spring break or hope it was very productive like ours. Either way...we had a lot of fun and got a lot done. I'm thankful. I have a good man.
Now, if the weather would cooperate and actually be spring-y....
