I had a wonderful weekend, it was just what the doctor ordered.
Saturday I went out with an old friend and took maternity photos for her. She is due within the next month. It was a gorgeous morning and we had a great time catching up and visiting. We definitely need to do it more often. Meanwhile my husband spent the whole day doing yard work! I told him that I could reschedule my photo shoot and he said absolutely not. That he didn't mind. He kissed me goodbye and told me to have fun. LOVE that man.
Saturday evening we went out to dinner and hung out for a friends birthday. Again, it was fantastic to see some of my favorite people, and their babies, and just relax. Have a beer, sit on the back porch, and chat.
Sunday it was kitchen destruction! We have slowly been working on our kitchen. We recently got a new refrigerator and dishwasher, and yesterday we installed our new microwave. While we had the old one off the wall we began a project that has been two years in the making - Mission Remove Wallpaper. Sweet baby Jesus do I hate wallpaper. The previous homeowners definitely had a different opinion. I do have to give them their props because they did an excellent job hanging it. Perfectly trimmed, the light switches are covered and do not break the pattern. A professional job for sure. I just don't dig the four different birdhouse/floral patterns they chose. Yuck! Thankfully they prepped the walls just as well as they hung the paper and it is coming right off! I cannot wait to paint and tile. It's coming right along!
Following our productive morning we were off to a grad party BBQ. Another event with great food and fun people! We grilled and hung out by the pool. It was relaxing and an excellent way to spend a Sunday.
I had a really great weekend. I'm so grateful for the wonderful people in my life. After an incredibly crappy week, I'm glad it is over and that it ended on a positive note. Now it is Monday and I get a fresh start. Let's hope this week improves!
