Last week my husband was on holidays, and we got a few projects done around the house. Our entry bathroom got a fresh coat of paint and a mini makeover. I will try to share some pictures in the next few weeks. We also started on our new fence in the backyard and patched walls and started painting the basement. Our family also managed to get away for one day, which was mostly spent shopping for my brother's upcoming wedding. My sister, Mom, and I all managed to find dresses. I was very happy to find myself a maxi-dress on a great sale (regularly priced at $170 but on sale for only $35!). I love that it is something I will wear again, will be easy to nurse in, and is long, which I prefer. It can be worn in summer and winter with a sweater. It is always nice when a dress is versatile :-). We were really busy so we went out to eat...a lot. This week we will be getting back to our usual routine. This week I am hoping to get a few other house projects done too...a big batch of homemade baby food made, start cleaning windows (I need to get this done before the snow flies), and clear out a shelf in the hall closet for my homeschooling supplies. I also realize my blog header is in need of an update, though that is going to take some time to redesign one. Ah yes, so much to do and so little time to do it. Sound familiar? :-)
