Weekend Recap

Well Happy Monday everyone!!!  I am in such a better place mentally and emotionally than I was last week.  I'm not 100% back to my normal self but I'm slowly getting there.  And I'm determined to make this a positive week.

Saturday, we finally crossed some house projects off our list.  We've been in our house for almost 3 years now and no room is completely finished.  Going on bedrest 3 weeks after we closed on the house (and being without a second paycheck for 15 weeks) kinda put a damper on our home improvement plans.  I am determined to finish this house by the time 2013 rolls around.  The Hubs finally got the shed he's been asking for and I finally got the carpet I've been wanting.  Our garage does not house either car.  It's been turned into a laundry/man cave/playroom.  But we've had to store the lawn mower, tools, sharp objects that could seriously harm the kiddos, etc, in there because we didn't have a place to put them.  Well now we have a cute shed (windows and all) just waiting for these items.  The Hubs is excited!  We also have a patio room that has vinyl windows/screens.  We removed the nasty carpet that was there when we bought the house and never replaced it.  We've kinda been using it as a storage room.  I have wanted to transform this into a room rather than a porch for years.  The vinyl windows make it so much nicer than a porch.  So we bought carpet, we're buying some patio furniture and it's being transformed into the sunroom I've always wanted it to be.  Our elliptical is being delivered tomorrow (SO EXCITED!!!) and it will go out there too.

Saturday afternoon, Em and I went to a baby shower tea party for the Hubs's boss.  Bev is a great girl, who's babysat for us a few times, and we're so happy that she and her husband are having a baby.  Oliver is going to be one lucky boy!!!  I was excited to go to a tea party but even more excited to bring Em.  We got to wear fancy dresses and hats!!!  My bridal shower was a Kentucky Derby themed shower so I have the most amazing hat that I planned an outfit around.  I ended up testing out an outfit that I'll be wearing to a friend's wedding in a few weeks (minus the hat).  But Em was, hands down, the cutest thing on the face of the planet!  He had a poufy dress and hat and totally looked the part! I wish I had better pictures of her but these will have to do

I just love her!!!  Here's a quick (and blurry) pic of my outfit.....I didn't have anyone to take my pic when I got home so this is what happened when I tried to balance my camera on the bookcase and use the self timer
It doesn't deserve to be a huge pic.  But I love this dress and found out it has pockets!!!!
Oh I do have to share my new shoes with you!!!  The Hubs was awesome and not only bought my new dress and belt, he bought the shoes that match the belt.  And they are WONDERFUL!!!
Love them!!!!
Sunday was my Mom's birthday so we spent it with my family.  I just love hanging out with them.  We're weird and actually all get along and have a great time with one another.

All in all, it was a great weekend and a great way to kick off the week.  Here's hoping the week continues to be a good one!!!
