It felt so great to actually stay home for a weekend. Now don't get me wrong, I love traveling, but considering we haven't really had a weekend home in a month, we were long overdue. It did us good to be homebecause we were extremely productive.
Friday, we had some people over to grill out for our friend Matt's b-day. We usually go to the lake to celebrate me, Marc, and Matt's b-day, but this time we just had to pass due to our many previous trips. We still had a great time.
Saturday, I went and had a pedi with some friends while Marc played golf, then we went to Greenehouse Grill to have some yummy lunch. When I got home {to nap} Marc was in major cleaning mode. He cleaned  the kitchen, moved all the furniture out of the living room to start cleaning the carperts. We borrowed a shampooer because the carpets were looking way rough. So they turned out really good. Then we re-arranged our living room furniture which we have wanted to do for 2 years now. Yay!
We then headed to a going away party and then went to babysit Sawyer so Katie and Andrew could have an anniversary date night.
Sunday, we went to church then got home and stained our deck, which we have also wanted to do for 2 years. Oh and a date night (Marc is not aware of this, but I decided we need one, Ha!)
All that to say, we were very PRODUCTIVE! We are rarely that productive on a weekend, so good thing we did not decide to travel anywhere!

Here is the newly arranged living room. Sorry I don't have a before pic. I really like it. I just needed a change

Here is the deck BEFORE

I think it looks tons better and will hopefully preserve the wood on it.

I love the new arrangement! Also, the deck looks great. Ryan has been itching for us to do ours. I like the color you stained yours. I may need some pointers before we start!
