A Weekend with Photos!

Wow this weekend was busy, but great!!

Friday night was low key, go caught up on some TV, finally hung my calendar, it was great.

Saturday we were awake by 8:30 when M's fire pager awoke us. When M got back from the call we started rearranging the basement! Happy to say the couch is in its home, and we need a new tv... ours is too big!!
 
 
Then we decided to put away all of the Christmas totes, yet keeping the bins we had not gone through separate. While rearranging bins in the back basement, I found these:
 

 
These are our wedding favours for all of our guests. My Dad hand engraved them all. Such an amazing keepsake to have found that brought back many fond memories of our wedding day!!
 
Once we finished, M decided to go outside and take down all the Christmas decor while it was nice and warm out. While he was doing that I made new covers for the new cat bed. They love it!

 

M and I watched the movie The Silver Lining - can't say we liked it it! It was soo slow!!

Around 11:00 we decided to go for a late night walk in the fog and take advantage of the warm weather! It was soo foggy we could barely see the dogs in front of us:

 
Sunday morning we decided to swap chairs with my Dad. He took the snuggly double recliner and I took his leather rocker/recliner. It fits soo much better in our great room! The other chair was just too big and well let's face it, didn't quite go with our decor:


 
 
Then we stopped back into Zellars and bought blinds 50% off, as well as this chair:
 

 
 
The deals are great. I was never really a Zellars shoppers, but now that it is being liquidated, the prices are great!! I just wish Target was coming. Luckily there is one coming near where I work!
 
We finally celebrated Christmas with my Dad. My curls are starting to work out better, but clearly I need to watch some tutorials.
 

 
I also found my knit boots when purging the bedroom upstairs:
 

 

Our weekend was great!! It feels great to be accomplishing soo much around the house! Another bonus would be that my lawn is officially green again and most of the snow around is gone!! Unfortunately the weather is getting colder again. I will get over it - it is January after all!

I've never heard of Zellars (must be a Canadian thing?) but I love the leather recliner so congrats with swapping with your dad! Fabulous!

Just stopping by from Mingle Monday!

Found your blog on Mingle Monday!

Don't you love celebrating Christmas a few weeks after?? It extends the holiday out and you get to see people you love - a win-win in my book!
