Man, the day really got away from me yesterday. Ever since the wedding, Derek and I have been enjoying quiet weekends at home running errands, organizing, and really just enjoying being husband and wife. It may seem a little boring to some, but the truth is I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I feel like we finally have time to tackle some projects we’ve been dying to take care of (like putting together Ikea bedroom furniture that we’ve had lying around for months) and it’s been really nice just being the two of us.
We started off yesterday spending two hours (yep, TWO hours) at Target. I don’t think I’ve ever spend that long at Target before and not walked out with a new shirt or pair of running shorts – I’d say that’s a personal best! Instead of clothes shopping, we were picking up the last bit of items on our registry and narrowing down what other items we needed for the house. Unfortunately they were out of the new hutch we wanted (rain check!), but we did manage to walk out the door with a new ottoman.
Finally we have a place to store all of our extra blankets (um, yeah, the floor wasn’t exactly working for us anymore) and Maddie has a new step stool for getting on the bed. We were hoping she would figure out the new step right away, but that didn’t work. Maybe with a little training she’ll figure out it’s a little easier to get on or off the bed via the ottoman.
After spending two hours in Target, we were starving. I checked my Yelp app for lunchtime inspiration and noticed a Sweet Tomatoes was right down the street. I hadn’t been to a Sweet Tomatoes in years and a salad sounded really amazing at that point.
I’m really not a huge fan of buffet style restaurants, but if you get me in the right mood, I’m all for it. I piled my salad plate high with veggies, then took advantage of a warm bowl of chili and a side of sweet cornbread.
It was all pretty good and exactly what I needed.
Unfortunately I was a little disappointed by the frozen yogurt.
It looked good, but tasted off. Not the trendy self serve frozen yogurt I’m used to.
The rest of the afternoon was spent cleaning and putting together an Ikea dresser. We’d been dreading putting it together since the last dresser we put together took us 6 hours. Sure enough, this one took about 6 hours too. I’ll have to wait until we have the bedroom all set up for photos. Right now our bedroom looks like a disaster zone, trust me, no one wants to see that.
Dinner was tupperware themed.
Basically all of last week’s leftovers thrown to heat up.
Best way to get rid of leftovers that I know of. 🙂
I blame my early bedtime on this.
I’m such a light weight. I finished the whole Pumking (holy moly was that beer good) and was out by 10. Party animal.
Today is new bike day! Hopefully. I’ve recruited a friend to help me check out some of the end-of-season sales around town. Wish us luck!
