Memorial Weekend

It's always nice to get a 3 day weekend but boy did we pack this weekend!

Every once in awhile I just get this random amount of energy and I just can't stop going!

Saturday the kids, my parents and I went and hit some yard sales. This week was a good week! I got a whole mess of painting stuff (rollers, brushes, roller-brushes, tape) for $10! That stuff is not cheap and I always hate having to buy tons every time I want to start a new project. So I was stoked to get so much backup stuff for dirt cheap!

I also got this little desk for FREE!
Looks a little beat and needs some TLC but it wont be too hard. I already have a coat of Primer on it and just need to add the color and plan to paint the top with chalkboard paint. I am working on Lys's room and getting it all cute and nice for Hazel to move in when this new little guy gets here so the boys can be together and the girls can be together. Lys loves and I mean LOVES to draw, color, craft.. you name it so I am excited for her to start using this.

I also found this little cubby thing. We always are just throwing mail and stuff into a basket on the counter and it's so annoying to have to go thru and organize and I have turned into a cluttler freak. I CAN"T STAND IT! I think I am becoming OCD and if things aren't organized and tidy I go crazy. Anyways, I forgot to get a before picture but it was just an ugly brown wood thing so I gave it some paint and added some fabric to match the kitchen and to spruce it up some. I was excited about the turnout!

I have been a crafting freak lately and just have projects lined up one after another. Can't wait to get them all done, I'll post along the way :)

After yardsales (and a nap) we went to my grandmas because my aunt and uncle and cousins were over and had a pizza party with out Pizza Oven. It was a lot of fun and the kids were hilarious!

I wish we would have gotten video but Hazel got so tired crazy that she would just start laughing and it ended up sounding like a lamb baaing.. we were all laughing pretty hard. And then there was Henry... He developed a little angry man temper and would walk around yelling at every one in gibberish while waving his arms. It was pretty hilarious! I've got to get a video of this and am disappointed in my dumb phone always being dead!

Sunday we ended up just chilling at home. Lys wasn't feeling to great and has a nasty cough.. we think it may be alergies.. poor thing..

Monday we stopped at great grandpas graves 

then headed to my grandmas for another bbq with my other aunt and uncles. By the time 6:30 rolled around we were all beat and ended up going home. The kids went straight to bed they were so exhausted and I of course watched The Bachellorette! I have been following the last few seasons so I kinda have to keep with them now right ;)

It was an enjoyable, busy, productive weekend and I now feel like I need just a day off to do nothing and unwind haha!
