We had such a productive weekend! I know that doesn’t sound like the most romantic thing to say about Valentine’s weekend, but it’s true! And there was still plenty of romance! 🙂 Lots happened this weekend so here are the main overview points that I want to remember:
1. Since we went out for a romantic meal to celebrate our engagement anniversary last weekend we decided to offer to babysit for our neighbors so they could go out on Valentine’s day. They have four kiddos and have never actually been out together just the two of them for Valentine’s. They asked if we could baby sit on Friday instead of Saturday and of course we were happy to do that for them!
Each kiddo got to pick a book for us to read so Christopher and I switched back and forth with reading. I can’t tell you how much it warms my heart when I see Christopher with kiddos. Kids adore him and he is just so sweet with them. 🙂
2. Saturday was project day!
We painted, we hung things, we installed a safe, and even replaced toilet seats. We were go-go-go all day! And it felt amazing! We love house projects and everything went so smoothly all day long (usually we run into at least a couple of snags that take more time than we expected).
3. Saturday night (Valentine’s) we decided to avoid the crowds and get Chinese take out and plan out a couple of our trips for this year!
Every time we watch Gilmore Girls and Big Bang Theory (which is a lot lately), we find ourselves craving carry out Chinese food. But we rarely get it because it’s just so much cheaper to make it at home. But every now and then we splurge and get it anyway. Saturday was one of these nights. So we cuddled up on the couch with our carry out Chinese food aaaaaand…….. TRAVEL BOOKS!
4. Aaaand to cap off an amazing weekend… we heard from a very dear friend of ours, Ian Voigts, (the same graphic designer who made my header up there as well as my photography logos!) that he had made a Learn to Love teeshirt. You guys, it is SO cool! If you want one of your very own you can order it here. And use code: JZWDAUDW for a 10% discount!
So yes, it was an amazing weekend. 😀
Do you like working on house projects?
Do TV shows you watch influence what you want to eat?
Any advice on Las Vegas, San Francisco, or NYC for must see/do/eat places?
