Productive - That's ME!

My husband is hunting this weekend. I was supposed to go. So was Skylar. I opted out. I figured I would take this weekend to get a few things done around my house that I have been putting off. And I wanted to spend some time with one of my dear friends, Jill. She is more like a sister than anything and I truly enjoy her company. So does my sweet Skylar. See for yourselves!

Last night I went up to spend some time with my mom since my dad is hunting as well. I got a horrible nights sleep. Skylar didn't sleep good either. Morning came much too soon! We got up and got moving and made the most of it. Skylar was much more lucky than I with taking a few naps. Lucky little noodle head.

Me? Well, me, my mom, and my grandma decided to do a complete make-over of my kitchen. I went through all my cabinets and replaced all my old things with all the new things Eli and I got for our wedding. Everything is all neat and organized - I LOVE IT! I also took the time to line my drawers and cabinets. While my grandma and I were doing all of that, my mom started painting the kitchen with the paint that I picked out the same time I got the paint for Skylar's room. I love it. I have never picked paint out before and I did a wonderful job - yes, I am tooting my own horn!

11 hours later and we needed to call it quits. We have the kitchen almost completely done. We just have to do a couple finishing touches. And we have a couple things to 'start' in the living room. The living room is going to be another project to tackle here soon. I am so excited. I can't wait to take pictures (when I get my camera back) and share everything with you guys!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful Saturday. Tomorrow I can only hope to get a little bit of rest! :) If not, at least my house is looking fabulous!

When your done with yours... come on over.. I'll get you to motivate me. :) B went hunting this weekend as well and it's nice to be able to get stuff done without him under my butt. That huge smile on Skylar's face is SO CUTE! Made me laugh out loud.

Wow! You guys need to come to my house! I need a new deck and to finish some landscaping. And while you're coming, bring the money to do it all because that's what's stopping us. LOL
