Weekend wrap-up

I know it's Tuesday, but pretty much everyone (except J!) was off yesterday, so I don't feel too far behind with this recap. 

We both got off work early, so we decided to pick up a Papa Murphy's pizza (yum) and a BluRay. We watched Salt and really liked it - even though I am not an Angelina fan AT ALL.

... was a full day! We started off the day by donating blood (although J was deferred due to recently completing his Hep B series of vaccines). Then, we drove to Ark. — J's parents wanted to cook him a birthday dinner. They live about an hour away, so it was easiest to do this on the weekend. We had a nice big meal of fried chicken, fried potatoes, biscuits, gravy and macaroni and cheese followed by cake. We were so stuffed that J and I ended up falling asleep in the living room later - oops :) We had to leave kinda early so we could make it to our friend's 10-year-old's birthday party, and then went home pretty early and read after our long day. 

Slept in and made waffles for breakfast. Our waffle iron was seriously one of the best Christmas gifts we've ever gotten (thanks, James and Amy!) I did some house cleaning and later went to a bridal show with a good friend and another of her friends who are both getting married. I later ordered my bm dress for Jessica's wedding - we waited so long, it's online only, but 50 percent off! After dinner, we caught some of the Golden Globes and did a lot more reading. 

I did A LOT of cleaning. Our pantry hasn't been organized since moving over a year ago and I stockpile so much, it was getting out of hand. It's kinda embarrassing, but here's the before:

After some of the shelves were cleared, I noticed screws were coming out on three of the shelves! I tried to get them back in place with a screwdriver, but no luck. J told me to keep everything out and he'd fix it when he got home ...

So, I tackled a cabinet! Here are the before and afters:

I also cleaned out my car and swept and mopped the basement! Once J got home, he couldn't find studs to anchor the shelves, but said they were sturdy. So I filled 'em back up! Here is the final pantry result:

Much better, in my opinion :)

In the in-between time, I also did 464721647 loads of laundry. It was a busy, but productive day off work!

How was your weekend? 


  1. I'm so jealous of your pantry! Mine is not quite as large, but I'm convinced an organized pantry is a happy one, lol!

  2. I watched Salt the other day, and I really liked it! I was surprised, because I thought I wouldn't when I saw previews for it! Im with you, I am not an Angelina fan!

  3. Oh I have to do this in the worst way, howvever I keep putting it off!! Thanks for following my blog! I am a new follower of yours now too!


Thanks so much for stopping by! I love comments :)
