Weekend Plans?

Happy Friday!

What's everyone up to this weekend?

Re: Weekend Plans?

  • Tonight - DrinksBeerDrinksBeer

    i had my last presentation for my master's degree last night, so we are celebrating. drinks & wii at home...should be interesting. i will be completely done next week!

    Tomorrow - working at the PT job for the first time in months.

    Sunday - knitting, knitting and more knitting. have to get crack-a-lackin on the 7 baby blankets i need to make.

  • Nothing too exciting. Today is my last day of work, my mom is hosting a Norwex party tomorrow morning and I think I'll go get a pedicure in the afternoon. Sunday...I'll hopefully be supervising DH as he cleans up our driveway and the sidewalk next to the house - in an attempt to prevent flooding in our basement!
  • We are in the process of finishing our basment AND nursey.  Yes, we're pretty much insane for planning to complete these two projects in the same two months.  Especially since I'm little help outside of sweeping and cleaning.  :) Thank goodness for handy in-laws!

    I think the nursery might actually be completed which makes me unbelievably excited!!  We are painting the top of walls navy (hello THREE coats) and using white bead board on the bottom with a nice white trim.  I've picked out some nautical accents and can't wait to start decorating.  I've always gravitated towards more "girly" femine decorating, so it's really fun to a do a preppy, little boys room! 

    I might try to get down to Family Tree Sat for Yoga as well - MrsTice, are you going this week?

  • Morning!

    We're going out to dinner tonight with some friends and heading to Cedar Falls tomorrow morning for a wedding shower and to visit some family. Should be a nice weekend.

    And, if I have the energy on Sunday I plan to finish decorating the nursery. I can't wait to have it all finished!

    No, my mom said I HAVE to go to her party Saturday morning, so I went to yoga last night. Have fun though! (I'm going to try to go both Thursday and Saturday next week.)

  • Congrats Natalie!!  Have a drink (or 5) for me ;)

    Will hopefully have dinner with some friends tonight.  Stop down at the hospital after that.  My grandma has been in ICU for a week with pneumonia. They took her breathing tube out yesterday after being on it for a week.  I honestly didn't think I'd see that happen, I'm so happy she is able to breathe on her own.  Infection is not gone yet though, so she still has a long road ahead of her.

    Saturday - H's work has a showroom opening in Sioux City, then a hockey night out, so as long as my grandma is still stable, I'll join him.

    Sunday - Hopefully relax!  It's been a long two weeks of living part-time at the hospital.

    Hope everyone has a great weekend!

    This sounds so cute!! Katen's nursery is similar, except she has red walls on top.  :) We used Valspar paint and it only took two coats if that helps any. I was SO amazed. We really love it.

     

    Today I'm going to use the hour and a half that I can be away from Ana to pick up some fun chocolate making utensils. (I'm excited!!!) Hopefully Katen survives the time with my MIL. It seems she always gets hurt under her watch.  I sometimes feel like a bad parent for leaving.

    We have a birthday party Saturday night at Felix & Oscars. Other than that, not much going on.

    Nobody said life would be easy. Just that it would be worth it.

    Oooh, have fun Angie!!! 

     I'm hoping DH and I can survive the weekend without picking up Will's stomach flu.  And that Will feels better tomorrow am so we can run some errands as a family and end up at Red Lobster to use a coupon I have.  Then just lots of pajamas and cuddling.

  • Nothing.  I'll probably make dinner and then we will all go to bed.  Maybe off to the Botanical center tomorrow then stop by my dad's so C can have grandpa time.

    Oh, then I almost forgot.  Sunday I'm running the Fight for Air climb up the stairs at 801 Grand...Monday they will be holding a grave side burial for me since there's no way I'm going to live through this! Sleep

    Good luck, Syd! :o)

     

    I had some neighborhood moms over today for some baby time and coffee. It was sooo fun, I hope we can do it again sometime. I feel like we have just been so cooped up and I've been feeling sorry for myself about not getting out and socializing, so I decided to do something about it! 

    Tomorrow we are having family in from out of town for Michael's baptism on Sunday. So I playing host....we are having a big italian dinner tomorrow night and then brunch after church on Sunday SO I need to get Hyvee and start prepping things so I can be ready! ahhhh

  • No real plans, DH has to work today and tomorrow so I will probably just hang out at home and clean house. I am also having a Friends marathon :) I love that show.

    Either Sat or Sun we need to go grocery shopping and go to buy something for house decor. We are buying one thing a week to slowly get our house more home-like. 

    Sunday is DH's only day off and I have to work overnight, so we will probably just hang out together til I have to go to work

  • Today was spent running errands and spending way too much money on groceries! 

    Tomorrow:  DH's parents are in town so we will be heading to SIL's house to spend time with them.  Tomorrow night we are staying over at a friend's house so she can watch Sophia Sunday for us. 

    Sunday:  Fight For Air Climb.  I'm really unsure how I will do on this...one day I'm confident the next I'm not.  Either way I know it will be eons easier than what my dad goes through every day just walking a few steps with lung disease!

    Syd---What time do you climb?  I'm up at 10:10:10.  Maybe we will run into each other, not that I'm likely to remember who I am, let alone be able to recognize anyone afterward!  :-)
