Weekend in Review -paint & party

Friday night we had an Olaf pizza party to celebrate mini’s success and by success I mean going on the potty for #2. We’ve been struggling with this one but we promised her to have a party if she went and she did. 

She requested Olaf for her party and D got paper Frozen placemats, Frozen plastic cups, and an Olaf balloon. We had dominoes pizza and lemonade and danced around the living room.

  
Saturday morning we were up early getting ready for a concealed carry class! Found it on groupon for the low.

Mini me went to spend the morning with her little boyfriend 🙄 while we took the class. They were both so excited to know they were going to play together! It was so funny that he was sad Thursday night because she didn’t play with him at daycare so I knew he would be happy to have her come over and play Saturday. I’m glad we have such good friends in them and I can’t wait to show our babies the cute pictures we have of them playing now.

After we all got home I changed to go legs + cardio in the gym. I’m really working on eating right and tracking what I consume and consistently going to the gym. My results should be great !

  


And after I got back home again i started working on the guest room. We haven’t done much to it other than put a bed and armoire in there. (Also stuffed the closet with cold weather clothes and craft stuff.)

Floors will get changed later but I couldn’t get over the color. Originally I was fine with the dark hunter green shade, planning on having a Harry Potter themed room. I found cute prints to put on the walls and a nice cover for the bed, but after we put the furniture in, the room seemed small with the large furniture and my eyes were always drawn to the less than professional paint job itself.

I updated the color to this pretty neutral and I am sooo happy with it. While waiting for the color to mix in I found a scent paint additive on sale for $2. It’s just an oil that leaves your paint scented for a while!! I got a tropical scent and I’m happy with that as well. I will say that after adding the scent I found it harder to get a good paint consistency but I could have shook it up more too.

  



Sunday  morning I made eggs with a runny yellow over power greens with crumbled goat cheese for breakfast!

I ran some errands including returning two sets of lampshades that didn’t fit the bill for our master bedroom nightstands and picking some cute kitchen stuff off a wedding registry.

Later mini and I attended the bridal shower with the gifts. It was at her moms house which was beautiful.The driveway was a winding 2 mile journey on a dirt road through some woodsy area that I’m not familiar with.The house itself was a kind of open floor plan 2 story house with a loft, and the kitchen had a large island and lots of counter space. I loved the fact that they built the house themselves.

The groom-to-be’s mom was there and she was so happy to us; the last time she saw me i was about 8 months pregnant with mini on graduation day. (We are friends of the groom since he was my study buddy in college and one of my senior design partners.) She was happy to know that we are still friends, and guess what? Mini is the flower girl in their wedding! I have also roped them soon-to-be newlyweds into teaching their flower girl how to swim as they were both lifeguards (she was actually his boss when they met haha!)

All the girls fell in love with mini and it was such a nice little dinner party/bridal shower. I’m so happy for this upcoming nuptial because you can see how happy they are together !  Mini napped this candid pic of me at the shower.

    No pics this time. I miss them. I always feel it is like a movie with sub titles. Next time you are down I can show you some paintings (Marianne’s and David’s) that Bert brought back here.
    Glad you had such good friends and can get to go out a bit. Love and kisses
