Weekend Warriors

This past weekend was wonderful! We didn’t have any plans for the first weekend in about 5 weeks! It was nice and relaxing but we did do a lot of things! I was going to post pictures of all the things we have done around the house lately but I can’t find my digital camera :( Not being able to find it is frustrating me! The last time I used it was to upload Dana’s wedding pictures and I have no idea where I put it after that.

So, I’ll just tell you what we did this weekend and have a more comprehensive update later. This past week we designated a “craft” area for me in the living room. We had planned to use the space to house Will’s pack n play but I decided I would rather have a craft area – the pack-n-play will now be banished to the back corner :) The craft area is composed of our ladder bookshelf for storage of my crafting supplies and our console table which functions as my work surface. It’s perfect! I also fixed the lamp switch that had broken so I have some light at my desk. I need to get some nice storage things so it will look nice on the shelf and a chair. For the moment, whenever I am crafting I pull over the piano bench.

Speaking of the piano bench, that was another project this weekend. We bought a yard of fabric from Wal-Mart that matches the couch and recovered the piano bench. I thoroughly enjoyed using the electric staple gun to complete this project. It looks about 100 years newer and now fits in nicely with the rest of our decor. Bill, PepperAnn and I are still really enjoying the piano. PA just lays on the couch when I’m playing in the afternoons – and usually if she doesn’t like something she goes and hides under the bed.

My last project of the weekend was to hang a shelf in the laundry room. I was quite proud of this project because it required the use of the power drill and laser level! I needed a high shelf so I could hang dresses and pants to dry. We bought a kit at Lowe’s and in under an hour I had a new shelf.

While I was working on all the little projects Bill was working on a big project – The Nursery! He has been painting the nursery walls (tan on top and white on bottom), cutting chair rail, etc. It is looking really great! I can’t wait to post some pictures of all his hard work!

Bill also mowed the yard and washed the car this weekend! So, we did a lot but it was very fun and relaxing weekend! I’m looking forward to more weekends like this one this fall.

    Yay! Great job getting all that stuff done! I am so excited about the upcoming nursery pictures! Good luck finding your camera.

    About that digital camera… Last night I said ‘Amber, where all have you looked?’ and she said practically everywhere. So I decided I would double check the places she had looked (in case you don’t know, Amber is not very good at finding things she thinks she’s lost, just ask her mom). The first place I look is in the coffee table drawer, which is where we keep the camera, and in the back of the drawer, there it is! Amber was sure she checked that drawer, so the only logical explanation I can figure out is that PepperAnn must have been using the camera when Amber was looking and had then put it back up by the time I looked for it :) Love you Amber!

    So much going on with you busy little beavers. I’m anxious to look at the pictures and see all the hard work making your home “your place”. Love you all: keep the news coming!

    Wow! Your relaxing weekend made me tired just reading about it! I can’t wait to see all of the updates to your home! Amber, you owe Bill a dollar!! You know that is the deal for someone finding something that you cannot find!!

    AMBER, I DON’T WANT THESE PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT YOU LIKE THIS. IT’S O,K. TO FORGET WHERE YOU PUT STUFF. I DO IT ALL THE TIME. I PUT SOMETHING IN A PLACE THAT I WILL KNOW RIGHT WHERE IT IS, THEN I CAN’T REMEMBER THE PLACE. SO YOU GET IT HONESTLY. I LOVE YOU ANYWAY. YOU TWO HAVE A FUNNY WAY OF RELAXING!!! CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOUR HOME.
