Oh wow have we been busy this week! Since the snow has melted and the temps have stayed in the positives for weeks now, we decided it was time to take on some projects before spring break. We have family coming to visit from California during break, so we wanted to get things done prior to their arrival so that hopefully we can enjoy the spring weather once it’s here! I shouldn’t say “we” because I wanted to get things done. Matt went along with it, because he knows it’ll make me happy and because he’s awesome.
Our largest and most time consuming project was to paint the living room, entry and dining room. This isn’t as large of an area as it might sound like, because our home is nice and small. But, still a big project. I’m in love with the white walls though and can’t wait to get to work on this blank canvas and finish up the below canvas!
Our handsome little guy had been growing his hair out since the end of summer. I only trimmed his hair once and I liked it longer, it was cute. But, it was getting scraggly and in his eyes. He decided on a whim to cut it all off. I love that we can see his bright blue eyes and his cute little face again!
Remember at Christmas when I talked about the big gift, the trampoline? Well, this past weekend the weather was warm enough that we decided to finally set it up. Best decision ever! Both kids have already spent endless hours jumping, there has been less fighting, and lots of fun. That smile on Cohen’s face says it all.
I did some baking this week (you can find the recipe here) and asked on Instagram and facebook if I was the only one who does this. Powdered sugar is such a nightmare to mix and a while back I discovered (on accident really) that if I drape a damp towel over the mixer it traps and absorbs that cloud of sugar that I usually spend too much time cleaning off of every surface in my kitchen. Some people said they do it and some hadn’t ever thought to do so. Do you do this?
We are so proud of our boy! Last weekend was his first Taekwondo belt testing and he did a wonderful job. His form was pretty close to perfect and he worked hard. Watching him graduate from white belt to orange belt was exciting. I’m just so happy that he really loves taekwondo as much as we thought he might.
And now for a busy weekend ahead! With family coming to stay in our home for a week, we’ve got some getting ready to do. Cleaning, rearranging, etc. We’re excited to see my mom and stepdad and to show my stepdad around Milwaukee and Wisconsin since it’ll be his first time here.
What are your weekend plans? Do you have a busy few days ahead or plan for some relaxing?
