Hi Friends!!! Long time, no talk! I know I missed a few blogging days last week, but week turned real crazy, real fast. This week is shaping up to be just as crazy… but with much longer days. So fingers crossed I get my content up for you, because I’ve got some great posts planned!
I hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend! We’ve been enjoying our time at home.
Our weekend started out on Friday when I got out of work nice and early! It was cold and rainy, and we ALMOST didn’t want to do anything. Almost 🙂
Because of the weather (the rain was turning all the snow we had gotten days prior to ice) we decided to change our plans and stick close to home. We put on our comfiest clothes (because who wants to dress cute to just get soaked?) and headed out to dinner.
We hit up our local Mancinos and guys… it was so good! We’d both grown up eating grinders, but hadn’t had them in forever!
After dinner we headed to Home Depot to start picking out carpeting! EEK! I am so so so excited because we are finally starting to renovate our upstairs! No… that doesn’t mean that our main floor is done. We’ve just decided that we are ready to tackle another big-ish project! (If you call painting and choosing new carpeting big-ish!)
What is left on our main floor is pretty much just decor/minor fixes, like paint touch ups, adding in small pieces of moulding and picking out new light fixtures.
We thought long and hard about restoring the hard woods that are upstairs (that aren’t in great condition), installing floor like we have on our entire main floor, or doing carpeting. I’m really glad we waited to make this decision, because I think we’d have gone with installing the same floor as we have on the main floor if we’d done it right away. But now, after being in our home for almost a year, we’re realizing we miss having cushy carpet under our feet when we wake up in the morning!
I know a few of you have been hoping for a new house update, but I haven’t shared one because we haven’t made many changes since the last! However, this week, you’ll get a peak of how our home looks on a daily basis, now that we aren’t decorating for any holidays! (Be sure you’re subscribed so you don’t miss it!)
Saturday we were up early to do a little shopping before heading up to Detroit for the Men’s Basketball Game!
We had so much fun at the game! It came down to less than a second left and we scored and won by one point!
After the game we headed to Ferndale to get dinner at one of our favorite places… One Eyed Bettys! They have the world’s best Brussels sprouts and grilled cheese 🙂
When we got home we snuggled up to watch some Disney+ and turn in for the night.
Today, I’ve been working on blogs, cleaning the house, and drinking lots of coffee!
How were your weekends?! I hope they were amazing!
Alright my loves, I’m signing off for the night, but I’ll be back tomorrow! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
Oh! And before I go… Trev made these AMAZING little Apple Pie Bites from Magnolia for me last week. They were SO SO yummy! I’m sharing the recipe for them tomorrow, but wanted to give you a peak of them today!
Don’t they look SO yummy?!!! They’d be the perfect addition to your Super Bowl Snack lineup 🙂 Hint hint about tomorrow’s post!
