Weekend Recap

So on Saturday Pete and I both work all day and I wanted to do something fun that night because we both worked all week, especially Pete because he had to work 6 FULL days 9-7:15! Yuck. So when we got off we decided to drive up to STL to hangout with my family. My parents and brother were up there to hangout and go to the car show so we thought it would be fun to join them for the evening! We also had a gift card from his sister to Pete's favorite restaurant HuHot. I had barely had a whole conversation with Pete all week because we were so busy, that it was nice to be in the car with just him for an hour and a half and catch up. It's also so nice to hang out with my family even if it is just for a few hours. Wyatt is getting so big and almost crawling!! So exciting, we just love him!! (and my sister and bro in law of course ;) )
Sunday we slept in for a change. We got up and met Pete's mom and Wes at Jones farm, a free-range organic local farm and market, for Brunch. After that we ran some errands and went over to our William Street house and did some more cleaning. It is SO CLOSE to being finished! yahoo! Here is a sneak peak of pictures...

We have a few more little things to get done, but the majority is finished! It is so exciting and such a feeling of accomplishment. I did a lot ;)

That's all I've got for today!
Have a good day!

Ok, well I apologize for not posting in so long! My life has been crazy for the past month. Not that any ones else's life isn't, I am just not use to blogging so it is easy for me to push it to the back burner. But here is what has been going on in our lives.
--We are ALMOST finished with our house on William Street..YAHOO! We have been in the process of flipping it since last May. I am so upset with myself for not taking pictures before we started, but I am going to go over this weekend and take "after" pictures so I will post them soon! If you live in the Cape area and know anyone in need of a house..let me know! :)
--I GRADUATED! and currently looking for a job...I mean I AM looking, but I have a great job now, no matter how much I complain :), so it is going to be very hard for me to leave until I find the "perfect job" Plus I have been doing a LOTTT of babysitting on my days off. I love those kids so much I do not think I am ready to give that up yet.
--There has been a few snow days around here. ...I am READY for summer!! Yesterday I wrote out my summer plans with swimming lessons, babysitting, work, etc. I am going to be so busy but I can't wait! I already have 10 kiddos for lessons and wanting more! whew!
--Every week I try to knock one more thing off our list of things to get done at the house we are in. It is hard to stay motivated!!
--I turned 22 :)
--My sister in law is getting married this summer!! yahooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
--We are starting a business...which has been taking up alot of my time! Getting the website ready and planning all the small details..I will share more info when the time is right! very time consuming right now!
--I am helping one of my good family friends with her wedding flowers. I am so excited but nervous at the same time! In my free time I love looking at wedding blogs and websites so when she mentioned she was going to do her own wedding flowers to save money I thought this was my chance to get my foot in the door. I talked to Pete about it and we both felt like it would be a good place to start and see if this is something I really want to do with my major (event planning)..I will keep you updated but I am really excited she is allowing me to be a part of her big day. The ideas I have for this are consuming my mind though, ha. It is so fun!
--One of  our dear friends is pregnant and is starting to announce it. I am SO happy for them, God is SO good.

I think that is all I can think of right now! I am going to try to post every day for a week, but heck I have been saying that since I started this thing :)
Have  a great weekend!
