I love weekends.

April 7, 2012

Can I just tell you how much I love weekends? I love weekends.  Well, some of them.  The one’s where Scott is home I love, when he is at work for 60-80 hours a week which bleeds into Friday night and all day Saturday (which happens 9 times out of 10) I hate them.  But he is home this weekend.  We went on a date last night and another slated for tonight.

And I REALLY love this vintage sweater. Gaudy ribbon rose buttons and all. :)

She is at a movie with her dad right now so I can finish up a few little things for Easter tomorrow.

My lunch date. She looks so grown up today...

Yesterday Creamie and I went to IKEA  and I found the most life changing little kitchen cart. It has changed the way I use my house, in only 24 hours. Amazing. I wish I’d had something like this 5 years ago!

My building helper this afternoon.

She helped me put it together.  She’s a team player like that.  Also, she brought me Woody’s hat to hold all the teeny little screws.  Thanks Woody.

Done! Time to fill it up with all the craft/sewing junk on my table. And it fits in my pantry so I hope that means I will just put it away everyday and we can eat on the table again! Yay!

Do you see the potential here?  I know.  So so great.  It is already full of all the crap that was on my table.  I only wish it had one more basket/tray/shelf thing to hold my actual sewing machine.  And the best part about the whole thing is that it rolls right into my pantry.  So I can roll it out, work on my projects and then just roll it back so we can eat dinner on the table.  Eating dinner at the table once a week was one of my goals this year.  It’s maybe happened twice.  And only because I sliced my finger and haven’t done much sewing these past few weeks.  But now that will change.  I am so excited about it.  The bet $50 I’ve spent on organization stuff ever.

Asleep on the floor in the hall. Again. Two nights in a row.

Alright, I’m back to the last minute Easter things.  When Creamie and Scott get home we are dying Easter eggs and tomorrow morning I need to make three pies before church.  My great grandma’s fresh strawberry, lemon meringue and my favorite rhuberry pie.  Tomorrow is going to be awesome. (Also, Creamie has taken to falling asleep on the floor in the hall at night.  It is hilarious.)

    I think I need to find a use for a cart like that around my house, only because it is my favorite color and it looks super cool.

    So, so jealous of your TWO dates, and your cute new aqua cart. So pretty. I’m wishing for a reason to need it too… but I know going to IKEA, even just for that, would be a bad financial decision for me. 🙂

    P.S. I can’t tell from the construction of it, but couldn’t you potentially just buy another cart and stack an extra tray up top for your machine? And I love the crazy places and positions kids fall asleep in. They’re the best.

    Yay for turquoise! Oh, and carty shelfness. And cute kiddos. And Cadbury Eggs.

      I officially made it through Easter without eating a single Cadbury Egg. Or a black jelly bean. I am deprived.

    You ARE deprived!
    I want one of those carts too.
    And I feel your pain on those hubby working weekends. 😦 We only get him in the winter… another reason I will be joining you in your love of winter.
