What A Weekend

Had a lovely weekend and wanted to recap a few of the great things going on!

Had houseguests Friday, my Dad & brother, I always love it when we have people over! Gives me a reason to cook and clean - both of which I enjoy! The guest bedroom and bathrooms are all lovely now and we had a great time hanging out. I even managed to whip up breakfast burritos in the morning that amazingly got my brother up before noon! :)

Our good friends, Matt, Laura and their little one - Landen, closed on their house Friday and started the painting process this weekend. I will be joining them here in a few minutes. (Matt has to work today and we both felt crummy yesterday - hopefully just a 24hr bug).

As if the excitment of house guests and wonderful new neighbors wasn't enough my husband surprised me with this lovely beaut!

Meet my new sewing machine - the Singer Confidence! I have already ripped seams out of two pairs of my pj pants that had too tight elastic in them and made them into comfy drawstring pants! I have such a long list of stuff I want to make - I can't wait to go out and find some great fabric to get going! :) And it has spurred me to get back into knitting - or, at very least, finish up the scarf I started for my sister last Christmas! It feels so good to get into the craft mood again!

Oh and we finally got the approval paperwork for our deck! Woohoo!

Lucky girl!!!! I was scoping out new sewing machines this morning, but didn't come home with one. The bobbin on my current machine is crap!!! I hate it.
We also spent the weekend painting. Wait till you see the color. Holy cow...
Hope you and Matt are well. Would still love for you two to visit.
