Long weekend craziness

I apologize for my absence yesterday everyone!   I found myself buried by tons and tons of paperwork at the office yesterday and was unable to type up a post.  Lazy, yes, but I got a lot of work done, so....there you go.    But I'm here today!  Better late than never, right? 

It was a productive weekend but a crazy one at that.  T's parents came into town to visit and help us out around the house.  We went to dinner with them when they got here on Friday and then went to Home Depot to pick up various items needed for weekend projects.  Side note:  I'm not a fan of the Depot.  It's huge, you can't find anything in it, and's not Target.  So, I'm not a fan, but I went.  Because I'm a trooper like that.  Saturday was spent doing projects around the house, and then in the afternoon, my family came over for a cookout/birthday party for T's upcoming birthday.  It was a lot of fun...loud, lots of stuff going on, but crazy in a fun way.  The next two days were a whirlwind of home projects.  I can't believe how much stuff T's dad completed in a few days:  installed two screen doors, two light fixtures, added electrical outlets in our basement, repaired some drywall in our bathroom and fixed two toilet paper holders (crappy install job done by the builder on those).  Oh, and added some mulch to our front garden and put in stakes to straighten the trees that were planted when we moved in and were blown slightly crooked by some strong storms.  But we got a ton accomplished, and we are both truly thankful for the hard work T's parents did for

While it is fun to visit with family and have company, however, it is nice to have our house to just the two of us now.  I'm thankful for this short week and for an upcoming, relaxing and enjoyable birthday celebration with my one and only. 

So that was my 4th of July weekend - how was yours?



  1. Ours was not productive (also it was Canada Day Weekend for us) so we went up to the MIL and spent time at the beach, on the boat, sun bathing, reading a good book etc.


  2. Our weekend was NOT productive...
    Went to movies, and had lunch/dinner at different restaurants...
    And then just relax in our swimming pool...
    That explains why my house is a mess.

  3. Adore you always. I need to see some updated house pics please that I can sigh over! :) have a great week, my friend.

  4. Always good to have helpful in-laws, right? Glad you could cross a lot off your list.

    Our 4th was fun and mostly relaxing. Loving the short work week already.
