Busy, Yet Productive

Well the first weekend of the new year has passed and sure enough it was a good one!

Friday night was spent relaxing, low key and dinner was already made by my awesome MIL - she made us shepherds pie! Yum! M watched The Dark Night Rises and I looked through travel books and finished crocheting yet another dish cloth! Oh and you will all be entertained by this video of Lux - aka crazy cat.
He was fine until he noticed me video taping him...

Saturday morning M worked, so I folded laundry and read a little of Bittersweet by Shauna Niequist. When M got home we decided to goto Costco and buy our backsplash for the kitchen, so we measured what we needed and off we went.

Costco is a dangerous store - let me tell you!! We not only bought our new back splash:


But we also bought a new couch for the basement:


It even has a chevron pattern:

 
You go to that store for one thing and leave with way more than that.

We then went out for dinner to Turtle Jacks before heading home.

When we got home we said "See ya later plaid couch".


The room of hand me downs is being replaced slowly! We are soo very grateful for everyone who helped furnished our house that was full of empty rooms, but it is also nice to be able to put our own touch on those rooms now.

Sunday we went into town, bought some groceries, went upstairs and organized, purged (another bag of stuff gone) and I am happy to say that our guest bedroom is now ready for guests - who is coming over?!

After dinner I had a shower and that made chocolate chunk banana muffins from scratch. Yum!!

 
Happy Monday friends!

Love the couch! Also I hate costco for that. I started only going every few months so that when I spend a min. of $300 on food I wouldn't hate myself!

Looks like a very productive weekend! I go back and forth on whether or not to join Costco because it's so damn dangerous...

I love that new couch. I was going to go to Costco on Saturday but, like you said, it's dangerous. And I was too lazy to carry the stuff by myself and my husband was out of town.

Stopping by from Mingle Monday!
