Weekend Bullet Points

It was a great long weekend, it makes me want to start a petition for shorter work weeks. I didn't take as many pictures as I should have so I'll highlight random thoughts and points from the weekend in bullet points.

  • We had a great doctor appointment on Friday, we got to hear BW's (baby W) heart beat which was very strong at 157. Here is video from the appointment. The next appointment September 30th will be the gender appointment! The gender reveal party has been set and planning is under way!

  • As part of our bedroom remodel David purchased a gigantic Samsung LED 55" flat screen TV for downstairs so we could move the one downstairs to our room. We got a great deal as it was a floor model from Sams (would you expect anything else). The picture occasionally goes out on our old one so it was only a matter of time. We've had it for 5 years. 
  •  This was David the next day. He went and got his Dave Ramsey shirt that says Sell Some Stuff on it. He felt guilty for buying it even if we had the money in cash and it was part of the plan. It's staying and looks fantastic!
  • Saturday I was suppose to run around looking for decorating items, but ended up taking Molly for a shot at the vet (she was due for one) and getting her flea/heart guard medicines. She had been itching for a while so we wanted to make sure she didn't have fleas. They said she was fine, but she does have allergies. So we have to give her 1 claritin a day for a while. It's starting to help, but that was a nice $160 bill. We also got oil changes/car washes and David studied for a bit. 
  •  Sunday we had some fun parties. First up was a 3rd birthday party for Thomas, our friends Kerry and Matt's youngest. He loves super heros and got a lot of costumes to wear. It was fun seeing everyone. I stole this picture from Angela on her FB. Thanks! 
 I had to put this picture up. This is what Dad's do with their sons, you know Matt was enjoying it just as much as Thomas!
  • Yesterday we went and looked around for bedding and a nice chair for our bedroom, but came out with nothing. The one I showed you from Home Goods wasn't as I thought. It ended up having a lime green color in it instead of that mustardy yellow that is pictured on the packaging. I wasn't impressed. Back to the drawing board, I think online I will have much better luck. Anyone know of good places online for duvet covers?

  • David did a ton of work on the master bathroom, finishing up patching and painting (which he has sworn he will never do again, and I won't let him. He is not a happy camper when he paints). All in all it was a great weekend and it was nice to have that extra day.

Ah, that makes more sense now why you said David was complaining about painting...I didn't realize he was painting also...still finishing up all the trim today and tonight, rooms like bathrooms with all the different trim pieces and small spots are terrible, I can confirm that!
