Sharing My Weekend – Hair Cut and Happy Easter!

I hope you all had a great Easter! He is risen!

I have a lot of photos to share today, so I’ll keep the posting short and sweet.

Saturday – Peanut got his second hair cut – this time we actually cut it all the way around. If you remember from this post his first hair cut was really just to trim up his bangs. This time around we hacked it all off. (Not really, but pretty much.) He didn’t sit as still this time, but once we got Mickey up on Youtube he was good to go. After that we went to Walmart to grab a few things and headed home to put Peanut down for his nap. (One of the main reasons we got Peanut’s hair cut was because everyone kept thinking he was a girl. Well, when we went to Walmart right afterward, the first thing someone said was that “We had a beautiful baby girl!” I thought Hubs’ head was going to explode – LOL!!!!)

Sunday – We went to church and then headed over to my SIL’s new house to have dinner with Hubs’ family. It was a lot of fun!

Don't let this photo fool you. He was quite squirmy before Mickey.

Just for the record – Peanut and Hubs got Easter baskets too. I took pictures on Hubs’ phone but for some reason they came out really blurry. Peanut got a coloring book, crayons, reading book, Mickey figurine, new zip sweater, and a miniature bat and baseball set. (I say miniature, but the foam bat is probably as big as Peanut.) Hubs got pajama pants, socks, and candy. :]

Sharing My Weekend – Partying and Cleaning House

On Saturday, Peanut went to his first non-family related birthday party and he had a blast! The party was for my friend’s, M, little boy who turns one today.
(HAPPY BIRTHDAY LITTLE DUDE!)

-

It was a superhero themed party, so all of the kids were in their various superhero shirts. It was so cute! Peanut went as Batman (he had a cape on too, but you can’t see it in this picture).

Hi. I'm cute.

Hi. I’m cute.

He had so much fun! Now that he’s walking, he was allll over the place.

Maybe he should have went as “The Flash”! :]

(Now you can see his cape.)

(Here’s the cape.)

The birthday boy got tons of cool toys!

My friend made this AWESOME cake. Look at this!

"I'm just going to put my foot in it."

“I’m just going to put my foot in it.”

"Okay, I'll eat it!"

“Okay, I’ll eat it!”

Peanut had SO MUCH FUN and was wiped out by the time we got home.

Later that afternoon we went over to my SIL’s house to get the armoire we bought from them (they’re moving and were trying to get rid of it). It’s really going to help us sort stuff out in our guest room and I am SO excited. Then, that evening we went over the Hubs’ parents house to hang out and have dinner with them.

On Sunday, Hubs and I did some major home purging. We got the armoire situatued in its place upstairs and then Hubs went to work getting/sorting all of his hunting stuff into it. That means that now I have closet space to organize other things! While he worked on that, I did the following:

– I FINALLY cleaned out the fridge (It was loooong overdue. I don’t even know when we had chili… so who knows how long that Tupperware was in there?) =\
– I  FINALLY got some pictures framed. (Note – I didn’t actually hang them… but they’re framed!)
– I FINALLY wrote down all of the stuff I’m taking to the Goodwill and boxed it up. (FIVE diaper boxes full!) AND I loaded them into the Swagon to get dropped off. No more boxes full of stuff cluttering the upstairs hallway!!!
– We got Peanut’s new car seat* installed – sniffle. He’s growing too fast.
– I did ALL of the laundry (and put it away. Go me!).
– I did ALL of the dishes – which was A LOT after emptying the fridge.

We all (including Peanut) got cleaned up early and were able to actually relax a little.

It was definitely another FULL weekend – fun stuff mixed in with stuff that NEEDED to be done mixed in with relaxation.
That’s success in my book! :]

101 in 1001

I saw this “bucket lists of sorts” a while back on Pinterest and have been wanting to post one for SO long. It took me about 101 days just to come up with 101 things – HAHA! (And because of that, some of these things are already completed, but that’s okay.)

Here’s the idea – list 101 things that you want to get done in 1001 days (that’s a little over 2.5 years), so these can be short term AND long term.

Sharing My Weekend – Hockey and Hunting

Whew. What a long weekend!

Friday night after work, we (my mother in law, father in law, sister in law, Hubs, and myself) took Peanut to his first hockey game! He did SO great. We opted not to get any noise cancelling headphones, and even though I started worrying about his ears once we got there, I think he did totally fine without them. We sat on the upper deck (which is kind of perfect but it’s not SO high that you can’t see) so I think that helped a little. Maybe? Who knows? I was also a little worried that Peanut would get tired of sitting in our laps and want down to play, but he did SO well. He calmly sat in our lap and watched the game with us. I think he was in awe!

During warm ups...

I caught this next picture of Peanut trying to get to Hub’s hot dog and about died laughing when I found it on my camera. (I was just snapping pictures and didn’t go through them all until I got home that night.) LOL!

HAHAH!

HAHAH!

Did you see that?!

Saturday morning we all decided to head to the Dixie Deer Classic. Hubs has been many times, but this was Peanut and I’s first time going! (The in-laws first time too!) It was SUPER cold, so we bundled Peanut up really well. :] (The event was indoors, but the parking lot was jammed so we had to park pretty far and walk in.)

This is my marshmallow baby.

We got there around noon and a good friend of Hubs got us in for free. It was REALLY cool! It was held in three different buildings (so it was pretty big) and there were a bunch of different vendors set up. They had “trophy” deer mounted and they had exhibits where you could go in and feel different furs. I touched a bear – no big deal. They also had an area with LIVE wolves, bob cats, coyotes, and owls. (Yes, owls. My life is complete.) I had NO idea that wolves got so darn big. Before we left, we all got “Walk About” hats. Hubs was SO excited that we all copied him. ;] (He has been wanting one of these hats since our honeymoon FOURS YEARS AGO! So I’m glad he finally got one.)

Clean the mirror much? =\ I’m going home and doing it today, promise.

Again, Peanut did so well. He didn’t get fussy from sitting in the stroller or anything like that. SUCH. A. GOOD. BABY.
After the Dixie Deer Classic we all went out to dinner at Rudino’s and then headed home.

On Sunday it was pretty yucky outside (cold, dark, rainy), so I ran out to the grocery store and then we all chilled at home for the rest of the day. Peanut finally got in a good nap – lol. He was too curious to nap on Saturday. :]

What did y’all do this weekend?
