Weekend Wrap-up: April 26-28, 2013

Linking up with Carissa

Happy Monday to You! Well, this weekend we had originally planned to go to my hometown to their yearly carnival called Wildflower Trails. I was planning to see a lot of friends and stay with our family friend, Joyce but when Mallory got a fever on Thursday, we knew we weren't going to get to go. I was sad but told Joyce to hold our reservation for next year because we would definitely come.

Since we were home, we did enjoy our time with nothing planned Friday night or Saturday (that quickly changed when I knew how much cleaning we could get done!)

Friday evening, after Brian got home from work, Mallory grabbed his hand and told him to come to her kitchen and he did. She loves making us good food 

Brian went to cheer on our nephew, Cade, at his baseball game so Mallory and I stayed home and I got some good snuggles.

Saturday morning, we were up bright and early. I used to be able to sleep in but those days are gone. Once we realized we had all day Saturday at home, we decided to tackle some home projects that needed to be done. We started with cleaning out the garage. Thankfully, we got some great help from Cade. 

Of course, Mallory was thrilled that Cade was there and they played together and he helped me in telling Brian that he didn't need half of the stuff he had :) Thanks Cade

When we got finished cleaning it out, Brian, Mallory and Cade decided to play a little baseball. They were cracking me up! Yes, those are Brian's targets from the gun range. He wanted to hang them on our front door for security but I felt they wouldn't make our friends and family feel welcomed so they are hanging in the garage. Helping Hands got a lot of good stuff from us and the dumpster got a lot of stuff from us too. It really is crazy how much stuff you can accumulate. The garage looks great, we have more room and it is more organized now. Project #1: complete.

Our 3rd bedroom has honestly been our junk room since we moved in 1 year ago. We just threw everything in there that we didn't have a place for at the time with intentions to go through it all and clean it out. Well, when I was home Wednesday with Mallory, I cleaned it all and decided we would make that a playroom since Mallory has so many toys. Her room was getting a little crowded with all of the toys so Saturday, my parents brought over the mattresses for our guest daybed and I set up the guestroom/playroom. I'm so happy with it and Mallory loves for me to pull out the trundle bed for her sit on or climb to the top mattress. Project #2: complete.

I didn't take a picture but Project #3 was hanging up curtains in our living room. We have a sliding glass door that leads to the backyard and our living room can get pretty warm when the sun's out so we finally got some curtains put up for privacy and to keep our house cool. Project #3: complete. All of that and Brian mowed and weedeated the front and back yard while Mallory and I went to eat with Nana and Papa. Busy but productive day for us!

Sunday morning, we headed to church and afterwards, I headed to a little tea room downtown for one of our Sunday School class member's, Jenna's baby shower. She is having baby Dylen next month so it was fun to celebrate her and her baby boy! 

Lyndsey made the cute diaper cakes with the airplanes on top and Brettni made the very yummy cupcakes. We had a great time and can't wait to meet Dylen!

Sunday afternoon, my older brother got to throw out the first pitch at the Frisco RoughRiders game!

He sent us this picture of him throwing the first pitch and him posing with the baseball and the RoughRider's mascot, Deuce. He told me threw a strike. I'm sad we weren't there in person to cheer him on but I'm so glad he got to have such a neat experience.

Sunday evening, we relaxed after our busy weekend. I think our bodies were ready for relaxation - just in time for another week to begin! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Here's to another week!
