Weekend Update

On Friday, Addison declared that she wanted a "girl day". Every so often, she and I go off and do something girly just on our own, and it's become a fun little tradition with us. It started back when Justin was in scouts and had to go on camp outs EVERY WEEK and Addison and I were left to our own devices.

So, I deposited Andrew at Justin's mom's house, and Addison and I went off in search of something fun to do. We finally decided to go to the Witch Festival being held at a cute little tourist-y village nearby. It had a ton of cute witches done up that you were supposed to go on a scavenger hunt for, tons of shops to buy things from, and with manicures. We bought Addison a witch hat and got her first, real manicure. Which is RIDICULOUS because I'm 25 and never had a manicure. I have crappy nails. She chose pink, with sparkles and kitties. lol. The ladies at the spa loved her. I think they were just sick of doing french tips.

We also went on a search for home decor stuff, something that poor Andrew (or Justin) has no patience for. I went a little crazy and came back with three bags of stuff for my house. Bahhh I am already chomping at the bit to get decorated ofr Christmas, but I'm trying to wait until the second week of November. I CAN DO IT!!

On Saturday, I cracked the whip and Justin got going on a few things around the house that needed to be done while I mucked out the kids' room. With Addison, I saved EVERYTHING. Every outfit was lovingly placed in storage for my next little girl. Poor Andrew, I am so anti-babies right now that as soon as he outgrows something, it goes right to the thrift shop. So I got rid of a bunch of stuff that he wore once because he grows and is a behemoth of a baby. It felt good to purge. I watch those Hoarders shows and feel bad for them, because there is no better feeling than getting crap out of your house.

Get this... we even bought drapes. I KNOW. If you've ever been to my house, then you know that the entire front is glass, and everyone in the neighborhood is intimately acquainted with the going ons in our kitchen. While it doesn't bother me (I figure if we're interesting enough for people to want to peer into our windows, why not give 'em a little show?) I know my BROTHERS don't love it, and am trying to be a good host for when they come to crash on my couch. (*cough* in 55 days)

So we were pretty much PARTY ANIMALS this weekend. BUT! I do have pretty new trim rings on all of the lights in my house, and drapes are in the mail, and I am feeling very accomplished and clean. Good enough, right?

OH! Also, we carved a pumpkin, which is now rotting on my table. It was the first time that we attempted anything other than your classic toothy smile. Which makes me mad because Justin does architecture for goodness sakes. He DRAWS things for a living and never wants to draw on the pumpkin. But he did this year. I only had to cut out the last bit. Ten points to whoever can correctly identify what it's supposed to be!
