Yesterday was a day for the books. We made some serious progress in our new house and it’s starting to feel a bit more like home! The musty, pink basement carpet has been removed, exterior paint colors have been tested and selected, piles of laundry have been tamed, rusty mailboxes have been removed, piles of questionable yard debris have been wrangled and we checked out a new (to us) neighborhood restaurant. The fun continues today with, hopefully, one last load of stuff from our in-laws and, of course, the Vikings game. Hope your weekend left your feeling fulfilled as well and you enjoy these links from around the web this week!
This weekend is the first weekend since we closed on our house that we are actually in town! So we’ve got a list a mile long of projects we want to dive into. First priority for me is removing the nasty carpet in the basement. I’ve got podcasts downloaded, knee pads unpacked and LaCroix stocked so I should be set. Wish me luck!
Even though we’ve been back for more than a week now, I still haven’t fully processed our trip to Dubai and Abu Dhabi (and a little adventure in Seattle as well!). I have, however, managed to gather some of my favorite snaps for the faucethead blog. Check them out there!
We are heading into our homestretch of weddings for the year (only four left!!) and I am particularly PUMPED about the one this weekend. My oldest pal (known the chica since I was three) is getting hitched! I’m so honored to stand by her side and watch her marry her match. I hope Chicago is ready for this wedding party. We’re coming!
The Red Head and I went on a little Craigslist adventure on Monday and came home with a new (to us) dresser! Our shirts and underwear have been upgraded from their plastic bins and I think we’re all pretty pumped about it.
I’m back from the other side of the Earth! And I’m actually (kinda…) functioning today. A full recap of our adventures will come later this week, hopefully. I’ve got quite the stash of photos to sort through first! While we catch up on laundry, unpacking, errands and puppy cuddles, enjoy these links from around the web.
