Odds + (Week) Ends: Volume 15

Odds + (Week) Ends: Volume 15 | CosmosMariners.com

A little bit of fun, a little bit of work: isn't that how every good weekend should be?

Landon, my husband had been feeling terrible all week, so we had a night in on Friday catching up on the last season of The Walking Dead. Only a few more weeks until we find out what really happened with Negan!!

Saturday: jump castles and baby shopping

We goofed off on Saturday, heading to a carnival that my sister (who's in HR) heads up every year for her company's employee appreciation day.

My sister winning Aunt of the Year on one of the bouncy slides! (I definitely wasn't going to haul this gigantic self of mine up there, so I'm glad she took one for the team)
My sister and my daughter are closerthanthis, so my sister had made sure there were plenty of things that Britton would love at the carnival including cotton candy, bouncy castles, balloon animals, and a glitter tattoo station.

After my daughter bounced herself into near heat exhaustion in the 88+ degree weather we're still having here in Charleston, we pulled her away from the cotton candy and headed to do a little shopping. I've only got about 6.5 more weeks until my scheduled surgery to get baby #2 out (and I'm counting every day since I've gotten to the beach-ball-with-legs stage), and I'm feeling the pressure to get all of those last minute things done before his arrival.

We picked up a few more outfits and a few things for the nursery before going home and collapsing on the couch.

Sunday Workday

Then, yesterday, we worked around the house. I haven't talked too much about the house on the blog yet, so let me bring you up to speed: we bought it nearly 2 years ago and it needs so much work. We're no strangers to home renovation as we nearly completely gutted our last house and then reworked it completely on our own, but things tend to move much more slowly these days. Having kids and traveling as much as we do equals very few weekends at home to work on the ever expanding list of projects that need to be done.

On Sunday, we tackled a major one: cleaning and pressure washing the porch in anticipation for it to be painted in a few weeks. I have no idea why the previous owners would build a white house and not immediately add on a white porch, but they didn't, so we've had a white house with an unstained, unfinished front porch for the last two years. It looks so undone, and it drives me crazy!

We also (almost) finished the nursery, so baby boy can make his appearance whenever (though I really hope for his lungs' sake that he hangs in there a few more weeks). :D I still have a few things to do, but it's close enough for me to feel good about bringing him home from the hospital to his new room.
