The Weekend

Whew, I feel like as much as we wanted to embrace this summer and be go-getters about getting our summer list done, it has kind of embraced us.

Over the weekend we had a garage sale, which nicely coincided with us needing a new set of tires for the car. My car is oldish and always falling apart one way or another. We just took it in because it was having issues and then on top of the issues they said our tires were unsafe to drive on. While I helped man the garage sale, Danny took the car in for tires.

From the garage sale I ran by the house, grabbed stuff for our little diaper get together and then went to my mom's house. With the help of some family and friends we were able to get over 200 diapers finished or nearly finished!! I did have a minor run in with the sewing machine, just tried to sew my finger a little. I am so thankful for the support I have had in working on the Teeny Tears Diapers. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, go check it out. It is an awesome project.  Diaper update coming soon. 

After diapers we were exhausted and decided to go get dinner with my parents. Our favorite restaurant in town was unfortunately short staffed and had no high chairs for Cohen to sit in. I grabbed the umbrella stroller out of our trunk which contained Cohen for a short time, but he soon grew restless. I walked him around the parking lot a few times which settled him down. But, he was tired and hungry and I knew trying to keep him in the stroller in the restaurant was going to be a losing battle. I decided to have Danny get my food to go and I would walk home with Cohen.

 Also, I think we *may* have a little bit of a strong willed little boy on our hands. Isn't 13 months a little young to be throwing fits over getting a cell phone taken away!?

Danny and I were supposed to go on a date at some point this weekend, but it just didn't happen. So, we ended the night with a fire in our new fire pit. It was a perfect date. Sometimes being busy sounds like a good idea, but man, I just enjoy the quiet times too. We had NOTHING on our calendar yesterday and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We stayed in our sweatpants all day and it was wonderful. The rest of the week is going to be busy so I'm glad we got to have a slow day. I guess all the rain we are getting is good for keeping us inside!


  1. Ha, we have experienced lots of fits over the cell phone. With my daughter I think it started around six month LOL, girls :) Sounds like a fun weekend!

  2. OW!!! Way to go with the 200! Mark and I had the following conversation tonight:
    Me-Remember how three was worse than 2 in terms of drama?
    Mark-I know...(as we look at Ava...facedown on the floor SCREAMING)
    Me-Better start praying!

  3. Ouchie ouchie ouchie!!!

    Ha ha, that little guy is right on schedule :) Sowwy :)
