A nice long weekend...

What a fabulous weekend! Not only was it Presidents Day today... meaning a 3-day weekend (4 days for Brandyn)... it was also fun and productive!

Saturday, Valentines Day, we started the day off with a photo shoot! The VERY talented Kelly took our pictures... and while we've only seen a few so far... I love them. Here's one!

More to come soon!

Later that evening, we went out for a nice dinner. Normally dinner out on V-Day is NOT something B and I enjoy... its crowded... hard to make reservations... the fixed menus are always pricey, etc., etc., etc. BUT... being that this our last kid free V-Day... and likely one of the last times we get to go out for a nice dinner... without a babysitter... we splurged! Lucky for us... we were only able to get early reservations (5:30 p.m.)... so the restaurant wasn't very busy and we had a great dinner... and great service!

That was the FUN part of the weekend. Now... onto the PRODUCTIVE part. Yesterday and today... we were busy little bees. We ran to Target and Babies R Us for last min. items... and then began plugging away at the room.

Here's how I spent my time. (Pic is looking down on the dresser/changing table. I cut tags, did laundry and folded more clothes than I have in my LIFE!)


And Brandyn... well... he had a much bigger project. Remember last month when my family was visiting... and we put them to work removing the plain French doors awaiting the arrival of our newly ordered glass panel ones?? Well...

A BIG thanks to Mr. Matt... for his patience and time in helping Brandyn pull it all together!






And the finished product!! (Well.. we still need to get the paint coated plastic off the glass windows... but we're *almost* finished!)

Everything looks great! And I'm sure you have a nice feeling of accomplishment. I see you have the same changing pad cover that I do.

Good for you for splurging on Valentine's Day. It's a whole different day when you get kids involved.

Love the pics and the nursery looks amazing! The little boy onesies all folded are so cute!

The pic of B and Mr. Matt putting up the doors is a great one.
