Halloween Weekending


Monday, October 31, 2016

This weekend was a pretty good one considering I was still sick (and I still am). We had a lot of progress on our kitchen this weekend, went to two parties and snuggled by the fire.

My weekend started Thursday evening since we had Friday off for Nevada Day. So after work, we headed home to get the girls ready for their grandparents to come over. Rory and I had a get together to go to for his softball team taking first place. I was feeling a little better after being on antibiotics for 36 hours, so I went. We had Mexican food followed by beers at a beer bar. We had never been to this beer bar and it was so much fun. I only had a beer, but it was a cream ale on nitro draft and it was heavenly.

Friday morning we had a meeting with our contractor to go over the progress and an issue that came about. We fed the girls breakfast in their rooms and waited. Our contractor told us that we needed to move all of our cabinets up several inches OR just the one above the stove because they were too low for our new range hood. We went back and forth on our options and decided to just move the cabinet above the stove up. But now we have to add crown modeling and figure some other stuff out. It never seems to end with renovation issues. I feel like we are in the middle of an episode of Fixer Upper or Property Brothers.

After our meeting, we took the girls up to their grandparents house, so we could grab lunch and run some errands. We needed to get the girls' sweaters for our family photos, some paint supplies for a side project in regards to our kitchen renovation, we voted and made an exchange at Loft.

After our errands, we headed back up to my in-laws house for an early dinner. After dinner, I headed out to my friends house for her Wild West Murder Mystery party. I wasn't sure I was going to be able to go, but was so glad I had the energy for it.

Saturday morning we slept in and it was glorious. We went out to breakfast at BJs (a barbecue place) and then took a drive around the city to see the changing trees and kill some time. Our counter top guys came over after breakfast and installed our new counter tops. Progress!!! After the girls' nap time we headed up to my in-laws house for dinner....vegetable soup and it was soooo good and just what the doctor had ordered. We had mini bundt cakes for dessert and it was the perfect cap to the evening.

Sunday morning we went out to breakfast again and then dropped the girls off, at you guessed it, my in-laws house. That seems to be a theme since we started our renovations. Rory and I headed out to get some paint and then went home to do our project in the kitchen (best way to save money during a renovation is do demo and small projects like painting). That took several hours, but we managed to get it done and get to my in-laws house by 2:30.

We picked the girls up and headed home to build a fire, run to the grocery store and snuggle by the fire. It was raining all day and we were exhausted from painting.

We played most of the afternoon between watching football. That evening we gave the girls their baths and prepped for the week ahead (laundry, packing daycare stuff, packing lunches, etc.). We ordered in some pizza (no kitchen = takeout) and watched Everest. The movie was really good and pretty intense. 

We settled in for bed and Avery started coughing a lot. She ended up crying for about an hour and kept everyone in the house up except Sutton. My cold had lessened so much, but I feel like it came back a little today. The lack of sleep last night ruined it. Let's hope for a more peaceful night of sleep after trick or treating tonight.

Happy Halloween! 

I hope you had a great weekend.

Looks like the girls had fun painting pumpkins! I've been wanting to see Everest, I'll add it to our list!
