Keeping Busy!

>> Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Did this week drag on as slowly for you as it did for me?!?

One good thing about the week was that we were able to tackle a ton of house projects in order to keep good and distracted. However, I highly advise against starting to strip product off of your wood floors at 8PM at night...especially when your house is 90% hardwood. True story, and three full days of my house cleaner's magic later, the floors have been restored to their original beauty. If you own a bottle of orange glo wood floor cleaner - THROW IT AWAY! It almost ruined my floors!

Mr. power washed every inch of concrete and finally got rid of that new construction white powder that's been haunting me (and said floors) since the day we moved in.  You can basically eat off of our garage floor, sidewalk, driveway, patio and outdoor living space!

Speaking of our outdoor living space, I pinned this couch a few weeks ago and decided on a whim to order it.  Do you follow me on Pinterest? Mr. put together the couch while Jackson and I assembled our new coffee table, it was so easy. We're so in love! I've curled up on it pretty much every night after work and watched Jackson call for his lizards:) It's the little things!

Ah yes, so I bet you're probably wondering when I'm going to update about my cycle. Such anticipation, but unfortunately, I'm just not ready to go there...yet:) I will say that the 23rd of the month is my favorite day for two reasons now.  And I'm pretty sure all of my boys will proudly sport 23 as their lucky sport's number;)

Many updates will come soon, very soon.  I promise!

It's festival week and our other Wilson's are coming all the way down from St. Louis for a visit.  I think I may burst with excitement.  Only one more sleep!!!

Wow, love the sofa! Glad you got the concrete pressure washed. Maybe that will help with the dust problem on your dark floors. I know its been driving you crazy. Love you!
