cleaned out garage! we were originally going to save this task for saturday - you know how long it can take to clean out a garage - but our neighbors were going to have a garage sale satruday am and offered to sell a few items for us (yes, please! i hate garage sales, but love not throwing away or donating everything). we sold a few items and got the garage manageable (as best as we'll ever have it!) that evening. check!
saturday am: garage sale - we were up bright and early to price and deliver our five items to the garage sale across the street. we ended up organizing our porch area (toys, especially) and playing outside before heading to the east bay for a walk and lunch at pete's parents. we spent a leisurely afternoon chatting and listened to cal (WIN!) on the way home. check!
saturday pm: relax! and i made homemade mac-n-cheese. delish!
storage closets - we woke up feeling so refreshed and with a great sense of accomplishment (even though we just cleaned out the garage- ha!). we kept the beat rolling and attacked our mess of a mess storage closest. i store all our holiday decor, stuff jack's grown out of, and pete stores tools in there. we had a bit of a mishap involving bird seed and rodents (you don't want to know) and i'm super happy we did it this weekend. we found out that the car seat and a few other items we were banking on using for baby #2 had become the home to a little family with big teeth. all ruined - better now than later to find that out - i cried a ton, but we're just going to have to go out and buy it all again! (i'm in better spirits now) check!
fire alarm and carbon monoxide detectors - installed with the help of our resident handy man! check!
plants - after viisting laura and eric's new pad, we came home to a ho-hum front yard. pete suggested we buy pots to make our cone topiaries more grand, and i was digging it! i wish i had before pics, but i think they're pretty cute now! check!
