Weekend Recap!

Happy Monday y’all!   I am linking up today with HoHo Runs and MissSippiPiddin for Weekly Wrap!
Well, fall weather has finally settled in.  This morning it was in the 50s! The humidity was gone and it was gorgeous out!  I love this kind of weather.  Cool mornings warming up to a pleasant mid-70 degree day!  I really can’t say I miss the northern weather.

Friday night I had a *tough* babysitting job.  It is rough when the kids are already in bed and I have to do it chill 😉  It was a nice end to a bit of a nutty week!

I woke up early Sat morning to news that my nephew had arrived!! Yahoo!  I got to meet him over FaceTime. He is so sweet!
Saturday I had big plans to going to the gym for a class or so, but I slept really cruddy Friday night so I ended up resting some before doing housework and my own home workout.
The hubs went out of town for a memorial service for one of his nephews.  Not the best reason to see family, but he had a nice time with his sister and some other relatives.
I was able to get some work done at our house and rearranged some furniture in anticipation of some new items!!
Later in the day I had the privilege of taking care of 2 of my favorites overnight!  We of course had a blast!  Made tacos, had movie night and a huge cuddle fest!
IMG_2217Sunday we all woke up and the kids wanted biscuits, so biscuits I made, along with some eggs, fruit and some gravy with ground bison!
Mid afternoon the Hubs came back into town and we got our new to us couch loaded into his truck.  Plodded back to our house and got the couch in the house.  Then headed off to pick up our new-to-us TVs.  It was a bit of a production getting them home.  For some reason, the 3 main roads that head south were all backed up!  Instead of it taking 10-15 min to get home it took almost an hour.  It was an annoyance but I kept reminding myself that we were safe, not in an accident and a-ok.  We sat in traffic and belted out Natalie Grant’s new single!
When we got home the Hubs warmed up some dinner while I got things ready to move furniture!  It was a bit messy but ended up turning out pretty well!


In the middle of the chaos

After we moved the furniture and I set up the new TVs 🙂
The new set up is homey and we have tons of space for anyone who wants to come over 🙂

That is about it for the weekend!  I still have lots of work to do on the rest of the house, and especially my office….for being an organizing queen, the disarray is driving me batty!  My goal is to have it mostly finished by tomorrow night! I would like the housekeepers to actually be able to clean when they come!  😉

To end the weekend on a fabulous note, I finally booked our last trip of the year!  I am taking the Hubs to Costa Rica!  He has never been and I have not been down for 7 years!!!  This will be my 10th time and I can not wait!  I was able to find an awesome deal.  It is like Christmas came early!

Have a healthy and joyfilled day!

    10th time in Costa Rica, do you have family there? That is awesome! The room looks great, isn’t it nice to change things up for awhile! Congratulations on your new family member, babies are so sweet and isn’t Facetime the best for that sort of thing when you can’t be there? I’m so glad you chose to come back to the Weekly Wrap! Have a great week!

      I can’t believe it will be my 10th time. The first two times I went were for mission trips and I became very good friends with a few of the translators. Then one of the translators and I became best friends and the trips continued so I could visit my friend!
      Thank you!! I’m sad I can’t be there in person, so FaceTime is really the next best thing! 😉
      I’m glad I’ve found the link up!

    Congrats on the arrival of your nephew, your tvs, and your couch. Sounds like a great weekend to me! That’s so wonderful that you will be taking your husband for his first time on a sure-to-be awesome trip! I will await vacation pictures!!!

    I love your new setup! Can you come and organize my house? I need serious help. Your Costa Rica trip sounds fantastic. I imagine this would be their off season for tourists? We went to the Virgin Islands during their off season and had so much fun. Cheaper and fewer people! I appreciate you linking with us again. I hope you have a wonderful week!

    Hi Baby Nephew! So cute! Congrats on a productive week! I love that you are taking your Hubs (I call mine that, too!) on a fabulous trip! It’s a little harder for us to do things like that with 5 in our house, but I’m wanting to do something fun in the future and Costa Rica is someplace I’d love to plan for. Any suggestions on best places?
