Weekend Rewind | April 2017

Now that I am officially in between jobs I am spending a little less time checking emails and a little more time catching up in the blog world! (Side note: It feels absolutely insane and liberating to not have work emails piling up on my phone or worrying about projects and deadlines.) This week I have big plans to finish unpacking, deep clean (goodbye construction dust), shop for home stuff, enjoy a spa day and more. I’m also hoping to take a bunch of pictures of our home progress to share with y’all too! Anyway, in the meantime, here are a few exciting updates from the past few days.

We unpacked our patio furniture!!!! Aside from Thomas still learning to navigate new steps, it has been so relaxing to spend time in our backyard. Also, there is nothing more gratifying than sweeping toddler dinner off the porch instead of scrubbing hardwoods on my hands and knees.

Matt is on the board of a local dance company, Caroline Calouche Co., and took Caroline to her first aerial performance over the weekend. She loved it and felt really special meeting the dancers after the show. She excitedly came home and told me and Thomas alllll about how she watched people dance from ropes. 

We went to IKEA…with our kids. Caroline got an A+ for behavior and watched 2358743054 episodes of Little Audrey. Thomas was a maniac and wouldn’t sit in the cart without screaming and basically touched every single thing in the store. But we made it out in under two hours with hot dogs and tons of stuff to assemble.

Oh, one last update — on Thursday Sara hosted Supper Club! Her outdoor space is ridiculously amazing so I was excited when she picked a warmer month this year to host outside! The weather could not have been more perfect and a few of us stuck around late into the night sipping rose` and chatting. For dinner Sara made a delicious beef tenderloin, twice baked potatoes and her famous salad from last year!

    Looks great, well done! Do you maybe have any tips on how to keep those white cushions on the patio furniture clean? The carpet underneath is beautiful too, do you bring it in at night or leave it outside?
