Sharing My Weekend – Labor Day

I hope y’all had a great, long Labor Day weekend. I sure did!
Saturday was one of those “tackle your to-do list” days. Even though it took me ALL DAY, I’m glad (and proud to say) I got it done! Hubs went to help a friend with his land, so it was just Peanut and I for the majority of the day. I got up around 8:00 AMish and left for Kohl’s around 9:00 AM. I had some Kohl’s cash that I couldn’t let go to waste. :] I spent way more time there than I wanted, but oh well. I got back home around 12 and tackled the house to-do list (all while also caring for the baby, of course). It’s hard to get stuff done when you have to stop all the time to play with the baby, feed the baby, change the baby, etc. etc. (complaining over :])

I cleared, cleaned, and reorganized the mantle…

*I just moved around what I already had in other parts of my house – no new decor for me.*

I also cleared, cleaned, and organized the fridge and pantry. (This was loooong overdue.)

Ignore the Mt. Dew. :]

Whew, breath of fresh air.

That organizer hanging on the door (that’s supposed to be for shoes) is so awesome. It’s super helpful in clearing space on the shelves. As you can see, my pantry isn’t very big so using the space wisely is key. Pretty much, anything that comes in a box gets taken out of the box and put into the hanging organizer – Pop-tarts, granola bars, crackers, etc. And I also put spice packs, sprinkles, Vanilla extract, sandwich bags, chocolate chips bags, and so on in there too. As you probably know, I’m NOT a fan of the wire shelving, but it’s what I have so I’m working with it. I find that the cardboard holders that sodas come in are great for organizing the pantry. (My work gets soda in bulk and they’re delivered in those cardboard holders, so I just take those home when they’re empty.) I also use the cardboard things to store the onions and potatoes instead of getting separate containers that will just take up more space.

And lastly, the biggest thing on my to-do list, that I have no pictures of, was cleaning the master bathroom from top to bottom. That probably took me the longest because I kept getting pulled away to do other things – including stopping mid scrub of the tub to haul the baby in the van and go pick up a piece of furniture for my in-laws! Alas, it got completed and I am sooooo happy about it. Emptied, scrubbed, swept, mopped, and organized.

Hubs came home pretty late, I was too tired to cook (not that I cook anyway – I have the best Hubs ever) so we ordered a pizza and called it a night.

On Sunday I did the grocery shopping and then we just chilled at home. Much needed rest!

On Monday, Hubs went to play golf (is that what you call it? Playing golf?) with his parents so Peanut and I slept in, went to Marshall’s (where I bought things I didn’t need), went to Harris Teeter, and then met everyone over at my in-laws house for a BBQ. We had steaks on the grill and they were SO good!

Now I’m back to the daily grind at work. :]

What did you do this weekend?
