Ah Monday has come again way too quickly than I wanted.
Here is what we were up to this weekend:
We are finally getting a move on our deck. Took longer than expected, because the Summer just flew by and we never had time to work on. So, we decided instead of doing it ourselves we were going to hire it out and get it done now before the Winter so that it would be ready to enjoy come Spring.
Saturday was spent getting bids from contractors and then getting to work on some prep work like knocking out our back step.
They even build a temporary step for us until the new deck is built:
We continued to spend the rest of the day outside cleaning up the yard and getting the area ready for the new deck. Hudson passed out promptly at 7pm and I’m happy to report that by 7:30 I was already in bed myself catching up on Breaking Bad.
On Sunday Hudson woke up with a cold and wanted nothing more but to snuggle in bed. We spent a blissful morning in bed watching movies and napping!
Hudson was feeling a bit better in the afternoon and getting bored at home so we ventured out and installed some items in my parents office.
The office is already painted and has existing furniture that we needed to work with, but we decided to update the lighting, add a rug, new pillows, and zhush up the desk area a bit.
Here is the old lighting we were replacing:
I still remember picking out this light fixture when I was 12 years old. I remember thinking it was the coolest thing. I loved that the frosted pieces looked like they had black smoke coming up on them. Now I laugh everytime I see and remember how in love I was with it.
My mom is going to be the one that mainly uses the office so we went a bit more girly in the new fixture:
We got to lay out the new accent rug that I picked up for a steal!
It was a new purchase that ended up working perfectly with the fabric I had already picked out for the space months ago.
The day ended with some more napping and getting chores done like laundry which Hudson loves to help with. He is a pro at helping place clothes in the dryer.
