Great weekend!

We had a great weekend! Saturday we went to BRU and finished up our registry. We picked out our bedding and some really cute outfits. Now I need to go to Home Depot and get some paint swatches and figure out wall color. I'm leaning toward a light green but we'll see. I may do tan. Who knows? All I know is that Chris is in a big hurry to get it done so I'm picking out paint this week!

After BRU we went out to Leesburg to have dinner with Chris' parents. It was Bob's birthday yesterday. We had a really nice visit with them. We spent hours outside on the porch after dinner chatting away.

Yesterday I woke up with some nesting motivation so I started in on laundry, worked on D'Cadillac's blanket, cleaned the bathroom, did more laundry, worked on D's blanket, cleaned the dining room, did more laundry, hung out with Chris and worked on D's blanket, did more laundry, and then we tackled the nursery. We've been using that room basically as storage since we moved in. There wasn't a lot to do in there, but it was hard to figure out what to do with the stuff in there. Like, where do we put the safe? Or, where are we going to store our old bills? That sort of thing. But we figured it out. We threw away a lot of stuff, added more clothes to the Goodwill pile, and got the room ready for painting. It's practically empty now. Well, the closet's full of baby stuff, but that doesn't count. I think it took us about an hour total to do it. We took a few breaks. It's hard for me to bend and squat too much. Makes my back hurt.

I really feel good about how much we got done yesterday. We usually make these grand plans to do that room and then it never happens. Go team!
