Weekend Recap

We were feeling pretty unproductive this weekend... until yesterday.

Friday night we met some friends for dinner and then invited them back to our house. After a quick house tour, a glass of wine and some chatting.. we went to bed fairly early.

Saturday, Greg and I went to the Reds game. He got free tickets from work and we had awesome seats. It was a little cold, but overall a good game. It went into extra innings, but we didn't stay for that. We met some friends at the bar after the game for a few drinks and to hang out. Our accomplishment of the day: ripping the towel bar off the wall in the bathroom and patching it (so I could paint on Sunday). Then we rented Life of Pi  from Redbox, and I fell asleep about 30 minutes in.

Yesterday we were up early for 8:00 am mass. After church, we went to Dunkin Donuts for some coffee and Meijer to get groceries for the week. We were home by 10 and we started preparing to paint the bathroom. We sanded the walls where we patched, taped everything off and had the first coat done before lunch. Greg made lunch while I put dinner in the crockpot. After lunch, Greg cut the grass while I weeded the gardens. The weeds weren't too bad, so when I finished, I went back inside for the second coat of paint. We had everything done and cleaned up around 2. We went to Home Depot to pick up a sample of paint for the dining room and ran to a few other stores. We stopped in the Ballard Designs outlet store that is about 5 minutes from our house and realized we need to stop in there more often! I finished getting dinner ready while Greg washed his car. After dinner, I helped him wash mine and then we went for a 2 mile walk. Once we got home, I closed myself upstairs for about an hour so I could take a quiz for class. Between everything, I managed to also do two loads of laundry and clean up the kitchen.

Wow, I am exhausted just thinking about yesterday! If every weekend day was like that, this house would be done in no time ;)

We are letting the bathroom walls cure, and hopefully will hang the shower curtain later tonight. In the meantime, here's a sneak peek of the color we chose:

Updates on the bathroom hopefully tomorrow!
