Weekending

Hey ya'll and happy Monday! Sorry we've been MIA lately but ever since Monday's little fractured arm incident with Miss Andi, we've been cuddling and taking it easy. Update: She has been doing absolutely incredible! She amazes me every day and hasn't even stopped rolling over - whew girlie!

This weekend we cleaned, cuddled, ran some shopping errands and hammered out some home projects including the total renovation of our huge front door. When we first moved in, we found the original screened door, well not 1850's original but it is dated 1903 and was in pretty good shape. Hubby sanded it, re-screened, sanded giant entry-way and re-stained and I am IN LOVE! It is so gorgeous and vintage looking which is perfect for our home. Also, the cooler temps at night make it so awesome to now have a screen door open to let air flow in the foyer! "Our song is the slamming screen door..." T Swift? No? Ok.....

We also took Andi to her first home football at my high school! I was a cheerleader and also judged this year's squad's tryouts with newborn Andi in tow so all of the girls were so excited to see her again! Can we say future cheerleader? (I'm totally pushing and campaigning my hardest for her to go there but getting her Dad on board with private school tuition since he went to public school is proving a little more difficult than expected...he did dress in the appropriate colors though! Getting closer??) They won and really kicked off the season with a bang! Is there anything better than small town football Friday night lights? It was a fabulous and relaxing weekend and I hope ya'll had a similar one!

Linking up today with B Loved Boston & Champagne and Suburbs for Weekending

  1. Man, your husband is so talented, your doorway looks amazing. I can't wait to see it and sleep on your porch ;)!

    Andi is sporting that sling like a champ and looks soooooo good in her lil outfits. Funny story, my husband and I have the same 'discussion' as you and Seth, except I'm the public school girl and he's the private school kid. Isn't it crazy that we like what we did growing up? I think both educations are great and as long as parents support the kids in school kids will do well, but I want it my way and he wants it his. Good thing we don't have to decide right away, huh? :)! I'll ask how y'all figure it out when the time comes for us. xoxo love you!

  10. So glad your sweet little Andi is doing alright! She is one tough cookie. As always, loving the home updates. The door looks amazing; one day when you all are finished making all the updates (does it ever really end though with home ownership? lol!) you will love knowing that you invested so much of yourselves into it. That just makes it all the more special for you!!:)
