Another productive weekend...

Wow, was our weekend a busy one! We have done so much since Friday afternoon. I came home Friday from teaching and Mark's Uncle and Aunt were at the house. His Uncle is an electrician and he was helping us out in our basement. (SIDENOTE: We have been working REALLY hard on the basement. My dad has built a wall/office. Mark and his mom painted all week last week. I will post pictures soon! It is going to be amazing!) After they left Mark and I went to a basketball game. The school where I teach has a boys basketball team and Friday night they had their first game. After the game we went to Babies R Us! Yes, I said it! We started a registry. I know it seems kind of early and I should not have to explain myself but I am going to anyway. Since we are having twins and I live 2 hours from home I will be having a baby shower in March. The Dr. said I have about 8-10 more weeks of "comfortability." We have so much going on the rest of January so we decided to just go ahead and check it off our list. We started it Friday night but didn't get finished. Saturday we ran some errands. Lowes and Home Depot to get some things for our basement! :) We had to make a stop at TJ Maxx and Target (is that ever NOT on my list of errands!?!?) for birthday presents. We celebrate my sister and grandma, Mark's brother, mom, and sister-in-law's birthdays all in the next week! WOW...and right after Christmas! We recieved a few gift cards for Christmas so we decided to eat dinner at Olive Garden and finish our registry. When we finally made it home we plopped on the couch and began playing the Wii!! Phew, what a day! That was a lot for a preganant woman, much less one carrying TWINS! ;) This morning we were able to go to church, it was so nice to be back. We have missed a few weeks because of the holidays and it's always so nice to be "home again." It's so comforting being welcomed by so many people that have truly been praying about you. After church Mark's uncle came back over and finished putting all the lights in our basement! While they worked I cleaned our living room, like REALLY cleaned...not picked up...and mopped all the floors upstairs. I made a quick trip to Target to pick up some last minute items for the week and got home just in time to leave again. We have dear friends, Joe and Leigh, moving at the end of this month and we were meeting them for dinner. We are going to miss them...bad. Joe is a friend of Mark's from elementary school and Leigh and I have become great friends. They have been such a blessing in our lives, we really are going to miss them.
Well, what a weekend...right? Now, I am finally sitting on the couch winding down and preparing for the week ahead!


  1. FYI - I started my registry when I was 14 weeks pregnant, and I'm not having twins. No need to explain yourself, girl! ;)

  2. I love you my friend! And I will miss you terribly... :(


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
