Happy Monday! Did you enjoy the weekend? I have to say mine was busy as usual. I tried to play catch up after being out of commission for a few days last week.
Saturday: The morning was full of shopping, from Wally World to Target (I didn’t end up getting the squirrel, but it was so cute) to Lowe’s to A.C. Moore to the Dollar Tree and finally to the grocery store. They have a donation bin for the food pantries in the area so I picked up some corn, green beans, cranberries and stuffing to donate. When I got home I took Seamus for a long walk, then had some lunch. After catching up on some DVR’d shows and my food digested I hit a few workout DVD’s. I started with the Jillian Michael’s Kickbox Fastfix then TurboFire HIIT 15. It felt great to workout after being out of commission. I was a little huffy puffy but I will get my stamina back soon.
I spent the rest of the night watching Christmas movies including my must watch every year, The Family Stone. I think it is so cute because they are a train wreck group of people with is a lot more “real” than most portrayed movie families.
Sunday: Started my morning with a good breakfast, preparing for a long day. Seamus was trying to distract me with naps. What a lazy bones!
One of my finds from the Dollar Tree was that Santa magnet that I put up! I got this shelving from Lowe’s on Saturday so I put it together and then organized all the stuff in my basement.
I would show a before picture but it was really embarrassing since there was a ton of crap piled up everywhere. Basically I couldn’t get to anything so things got tossed in. These are just some of my Halloween and Christmas decorations. I have another shelve directly across from this one and another by the door that holds my tools. You can’t see it either but I have a kayak in there too. It is 11 feet long so it really gets in the way. I don’t have a garage and my attic is useless so this is really the only spot for it. 🙁 I really do hate clutter so this will hopefully really help keep it clean.
After a quick bite to eat I got started on a few DIY projects to get my house “winterized”. First up was my coffee table centerpiece. I got the reindeer from Target, the ornaments from the dollar tree and the tray from Wal-Mart everything else I already had in my house.
Then I worked on my Dining room table. You can see my fall table decorations here. The only thing I purchased was the snowflakes which I got from the dollar tree. I had planned to use them to make ornaments for my tree but I think they work here too.
I will do a post about the details for everything I used and where I got the items from, later this week. I also cleaned my fridge, oven, and microwave. Felt pretty productive so after all the projects were completed I took Seamus for a walk, and watched a few Christmas movies.
