This weekend I actually got some things done..which feels great! I am feeling good about my productivity this weekend.:) Of course, you have to have some fun--so here is a picture from one of my 2 trips to Farmington Gardens....
I so love this nursery! My Mom and I went on Friday and got some flowers and an outdoor rug..which I love! Janae saw the rug and loved it too, so called them and had them hold the last one for her so we had to go back the next day and get it. Going back the second time was not an issue for me--I could spend hours there! Bella and Lacie like it because it is all outside so they can come.
While Janae and I were at the gardens, Chantel was at home shampooing her carpet and Wyatt's. The night before Janae and Chantel shampooed Janae's upstairs of her house since there is no longer any carpet downstairs...finally! When we got home I spent the whole evening cleaning the carpets in the rest of my house, we got Janae's money worth out of that rental machine!
Yes...Janae's new floors are done! Janae floors post here My new nickname is Jigsaw woman. Chantel is experiencing so many different things than the normal 13 year old girl experiences in a weekend. The above picture is when her and I went to Home Depot and picked up more moulding, and were trying to decide how much we needed, which we cut ourselves I might add. I'm pretty proud of our new found skills!
As I mentioned before Mom and I found a outdoor rug (on sale for 1/2 price) at Farmington Gardens last Friday. I love, love, love it!!! I love the way it feels on my bare feet. I love the way it looks, and how it makes the front deck look even more like a actual room.
Doesn't it look great?! (besides the fact that it feels great) Also, that little table..I found it at Goodwill and thought it would make a darling little coffee table for the front deck. Of course..it will be white and cute eventually. Stay tuned for that:) I can't wait to make some cute pillows and stuff and make this area look cute and inviting! You will be seeing this rugs identical twin sister on Janae's blog soon.
I cut these lilacs to take to Janae's so she could enjoy them in her home with her beautiful new floors. Was over at her house tonight for a bit and her house looks amazing! Hard to believe it is the same house that was covered in dust and wood stacked everywhere just a few short days ago.
Since Janae took the week off to do her floors her vacation time was something less than relaxing. She said at one point it would have been much more relaxing to go to work..and her job is pretty stressful! Her car was in bad need of a detailing job and so that's what I spent my afternoon doing today. It was such a lovely day! Gage came out and watched...and Chantel and Wyatt cleaned the outside of her car for her. I cleaned every last inch of the inside of her car and it looks beautiful! I know how much she appreciates it. Now she can start her work week with a clean car...and a clean house. That always makes life better in my opinion.
|Notice Big John came out too. One of the first times he has ever been outside. He looks real thrilled about it:)|
Chantel found this rock in our yard today...
So it was a weekend of cutting floors, cleaning carpets, and cleaning cars...but the important thing is I spent it with my kids and it feels good to have gotten so much done. Tomorrow is suppose to 80 degrees and the gardens are calling!
I hope you have a lovely week!
