Weekend Highlights

First off, Happy June!!
I know I say it most weekends, but this one flew by SO quickly. And that's probably because this weekend was another one spent doing a home reno project. Unexpectedly. MG's dad called towards the end of the week to see if he could come down and help us this weekend, so we of course said yes even though it meant some of our weekend plans changed a bit.

My weekend highlights included:

~Friday dinner date night with MG

~Saturday morning eye doctor appointment (boring)

~Started reading The Wild 

~MG's parents came into town around noon to help us demo our guest bathroom. And just for perspective, here's what the floor looked like before--linoleum:
No, we did not paint the bathroom orange. Yes, we hate it. Yes it's going to change.

~The rest of the afternoon MG and his dad ripped out the current cabinet and flooring in our upstairs guest bathroom (the one we've picked out the cabinet and granite for a few weeks ago). 

~A super delicious dinner at The Wharf in Old Town

~Sleepy pups at night 

~Puppy cuddles in the morning
~A full day of work for MG and his dad getting the sub floor and tile down in the bathroom

~Going out shopping for a couple hours with my MIL for decor ideas, for our house and theirs, and to pick out our bathroom faucet
thinking of getting these for our basement guest bedroom 
~Running tile that was being cut by MG on our bottom deck, all the way up to our top floor to my FIL to lay in our bathroom, piece by piece. I'm pretty sure I ran up and down both sets of stairs at least 950 times yesterday. (Hey, it was exercise!)
before the grout (the left shows more of what the tile really looks like)
~Mexican dinner for a reward

~Back home to grout the tile
this is right after it was grouted, so it's not totally done yet
~Said good bye to MG's parents (so thankful for their help--we seriously could not have done this without them)

~Tried to relax for a bit before heading to bed since it was a long day for all of us

Needless to say, we both had a good night's sleep after our weekend of home projects.

The nice part was that our parents were able to stay in the guest room downstairs that was just done, and got to see the basement all done in person. They were totally impressed and my FIL even said he might want to do the same floor in the basement at their place.
We learned a lot this weekend. And, coming up on a year since moving into our house, I'm pretty proud of everything that we've learned and done ourselves in this process of making this house really feel like our home.

Anyway, that was my weekend. I hope yours was fun, relaxing, productive or whatever you needed/wanted it to be!

  20. floors are a project that definitely intimidates me.. My sister and BIL did most of theirs so I know I have someone to turn to for tips. We have a bunch of carpet, but I'm extremely allergic/have asthma, so carpets eventually need to go..

    looks amazing so far, though! Where were you shopping for the windows? they look amazing!
