we had such a great weekend. saturday, I put together our new dining room set and it's a much needed improvement. our old dining room table was awesome- i loved it- but it didn't have chairs that matched and I couldn't bring myself to pay fifty plus dollars for each chair! what can i say, i'm a little cheap when it comes to things like this. the other problem was it was a little bigger than it should have been for our dining room. we were constantly bumping into it and having to walk around it. it worked for our first 3 years in our house, but it was time for a change. our parents both went in together and bought us this for Christmas. It took me foreeeever to set up but I really love it! It makes the dining room look a lot bigger- always a good thing. i'll get pictures of it soon- once i pick up in there! yikes!
|Em LOVES reading! She's always pulling out her books and asking us to read!|
Sunday afternoon we had a massive pile of laundry to put up. it was probably like 8 loads that have all been folded, but I haaaate putting clothes away! While we were putting clothes away, Emmie was running around without clothes (ha) and having so much fun with Linus!
|best friends forever!|
|my accessories loving girl!|
|oh linus makes a great chair too!|
sunday afternoon we went out shopping and drug Emmie along with us! She is such a sport on these days! we went to Children's place to look for a Snow Suit and ended up finding a ton of great deals! There were fleece pajamas for $2.99! I ended up buying like 10 sets! Michael kept Emmie entertained by trying on earmuffs, sunglasses and coats. She was loving it! And it kept her in a good mood so I could shop! (Just pushing her nap back like an hour...oops!)
Weekends call for cozy, warm outfits like this long oversized sweater and leggings!
Then, Sunday night, I was able to leave Emmie home with Michael and go out for a girls night with Miranda and Heather- two of my dear friends from college! I'm so lucky they both still live here in Lynchburg! :) We went to Robin Alexanders and I got an amazing Turkey burger with avocado, and feta cheese- oh my goodness- so yummy! Martini's and Salted Caramel Brownies were also part of our girls night! I think I am STILL full- but oh so worth it!
So good to have friends and time away from my responsibilities!
What did you do this weekend?
