yummy dinner

The other night, hubby made me dinner. It was so good! Mushroom, swiss burger. We sauteed mushrooms and onions and put it on top of the burger. And we used a kaiser roll. We also made steak fries to go with it. It sure was good!

A Working Weekend...

We spent the entire weekend running around and working hard. Hubby spent his Saturday cleaning the yard. He is replacing the mulch in our playground set. It is way too hot and he got pretty miserable.

I spent the day cleaning the house. I have been so busy with work during the week that I had to wait til Saturday to clean. It sure feels good to be in a clean house. I even cleaned our ceiling fan! I just love the smell of a clean house!

Saturday afternoon Little Man and I had a date. It was our first since baby boy has been born. I left baby boy and hubby home. Little Man and I went to see one of his little friend dance in her recital. He loved it. She is such a cutie pie and did a great job. She didn't know that we were coming and was very surprised to see little man there. Her little face lit up when she saw him! Then when she was done and we were leaving, he gave her a big hug and kissed her forehead (he is a bit taller than her). You can see her little eyes sparkle bc she does have a little crush on him. Well, I think 4 is way too young for my boy to be kissing on girls. But alas, it happened. haha

I spent Sunday catching up on rest and I had to run to the grocery store.

It was a busy and yet nice weekend.

This week will also be filled with more yard work.... OH and the best part is that I was able to order a patio furniture for my patio. WOOHOO! I am so excited! I got it for a steal at Wal I'll have to take pictures once I get it all set up. :)

Monday Madness! Partys On

Can you believe my baby boy is almost 1? Time flies. It goes by sooo much faster with the second kid than with the first. With my oldest I started planning his party 6 months in advance. With baby boy I've been slacking. I just have so much going on. It's hard to keep up with everything. But don't worry, baby boy is going to have a special party! I just love etsy and made my very first stop on etsy for all my party needs! Of course the first thing I needed was a banner. SO I found a super cute store called Partys On. She made me the most adorable circus theme banner for baby boy. She has the most amazing banners! Check out her store here. She was so sweet and great to work with! I can't wait to get the house all decorated for baby boy's party!!! Although, I can wait for him to turn 1. lol
