[friday] after work, I stopped at the library to return a book and pick up two more (the next one for Brie's book club). I headed home and we picked up some pizza for dinner. Once Amelia was in bed, I started to paint the columns around our front porch and along the garage. They were looking worn and needed to be done. I think I finished around 9:45pm and it was pretty much straight to bed!
[saturday] in the morning, I put a coat of paint on the front and back door (they needed to be done as well) before we headed out to look at a couple houses. One was a major no, one was okay but not quite perfect, and one was perfect. It was above our budget, but decided to put an offer in on it to see if we could get them to come down. We ended up hearing back on Sunday morning that they rejected our offer and also wanted a way shorter possession date, which didn't work for us. Onto the next one!
After looking at houses, we came home to have lunch, play outside and then Amelia went down for a nap. While she was sleeping, I put another coat of paint on the doors - not sure why, but they ended up looking like sh*t so I was super frustrated.
What else did we do? Took Harley for a walk, planted the flowers we bought last weekend and then Justin came over to have a BBQ with us. After Amelia was in bed, I mowed the grass and then cleaned the floors. Productive day!
[sunday] I had a wonderful sleep-in and got up just before Mr.D left for his bike date with Justin. Amelia and I headed to Home Depot to pick up some different paint- all was going well until she had a freak out in the store. That was fun ;) After we got home, we played outside before she went down for a nap around 10:50am (she ended up sleeping for 2 hours and 15 mins!). While she was napping, I repainted the front door with the new paint, and did a workout in the sunshine.
Once Mr.D got home, I quickly ran to Wal-Mart to pick up a few things. When I got back, I put the groceries away and we headed out for a bike ride with Amelia. She wasn't a huge fan of the helmet, but some raisins made her happy. She ended falling fast asleep towards the end of our ride- it was so cute!
Something exciting is that Amelia has finally started walking way more the past couple of days! It's like she realized that she could and now she won't stop. Love it!
Tell me: how was your weekend?
