Lazy Weekend

We had a lazy weekend with both nights at home. I normally love to get out and have a grown up night out at least once a weekend, but it was REALLY nice to hang out at home all weekend. The kids actually managed to behave quite well and we only had to open the Valium once or twice. (Just kidding) On Friday I drove two hours to pick up our new rug for our bedroom. I was so excited! When I got there I realized that there was no way it was going to fit in my car without major construction. So, we had to hang it out the back about five feet and tie the hatch down. Poor BabyGirl was smashed into the corner of the car. No cares for her, though. We got to go to her favorite Chick fil A in the state so she was quite content. I got the rug home and on Saturday Dr. Daddy and I tackled putting down on the floor. What a freakin pain. The man is crazy. I think we measured within an inch of my life! (this is where the Valium comes in!) Finally, after taking apart and reassembling the bed TWICE (the creaking bed drives my type A self nuts when we're doing you know what) and moving three dressers several times, we got the rug down. It really looks better than I could have imagined. My bed bench is back and has been recovered and now all I have to do is make the curtains!!! My goal is to have them made by Halloween.
Yesterday, we had our photo shoot. Note to self: DO NOT use grape heads as bribery. They turn teeth purple. Duh. Should have stuck with the lemon. Other than that it all went pretty well, considering the kids are three and five! They weren't horribly behaved and I couldn't have asked for more beautiful weather. And, BabyGirl waited until almost the end to fall on her stomach and smear mud down the front of her white cable knit dress.
You can see some sneak peeks here.

I'm so jealous you ate Chic-fil-a. It is by far my favorite.
