I mentioned that my dad came up last weekend, so Hubby and I had a chance to get out a few times by ourselves without the little dude tagging alone. It was amazing. We don't have family close by and sitters get expensive, so it's usually always the three of us. We really need to make date nights a priority again, though. It was so refreshing to get out and actually have an uninterrupted conversation, hold hands and just leisurely run errands. Anyway, when leisurely browsing the aisles of Target (let me reiterate - uh-mazing), Hubby came across a glass lamp. He knew I'd been on the look out for a pair and I casually commented "too bad there aren't two". Well, he made that his personal mission and was able to uncover a second one. I'm not sure I totally love the shape, but for the $14.98 price tag, I was sold. These babies were originally $49.99 each and I ended up paying $15.82 total, thanks to $5 and $10 Target gift cards I found in my wallet.
This weekend, we started our festivities at 6 am with a little dude that was beyond ready to get up and play. I don't understand why he struggles to get up at 6:30 during the week, but is wide awake and perky at 6 am on the weekend. I was hoping for at least another hour of sleep. Maybe tomorrow. After a diaper change and an episode of Dinosaur Train, we decided to make breakfast for Hubby. E's really into cooking lately, so it's been a lot of fun to have him helping in the kitchen. I came across a breakfast ring recipe on Pinterest the other day and immediately pinned it, hoping to surprise the Hubby this weekend. Well, he was stalking my Pinterest boards to look at faucets I'd saved and came across the recipe pin the next day. I got an e-mail at work that read something like: "MOST DEFINITELY, YES!!!!", along with a link to the recipe. So much for that surprise!
Despite having to go back to the store this morning because the crescent rolls I bought last night were crusty when I opened them, the recipe was a big hit! I snagged the recipe from The Kitchen Life of a Navy Wife but the original source seems to be Bacon Time with the Hungry Hungry Hypo. I'd highly recommend adding it to your breakfast rotation. I didn't have cheddar cheese on hand and ended up using a mix of American cheese slices and shredded mozzarella. Next time, I might do 6 or 7 eggs instead of 5, but, otherwise, I followed the recipe as written and it was delicious.
After our bellies were full, we headed out to the house to check out the latest progress. Our first discovery was that our garage doors were hung. Verdict is? I love them. Now I'm even more anxious for the siding and stone work to be finished.
This is the first snow we've really had this winter and E loved bundling up in his snowsuit and getting a chance to play on his new sled from Christmas (thanks Papa K and Gram-Gram). He and Daddy took a couple rides around the house and the giggling was contagious.
Nothing else had changed on the inside, but we discovered our bathtub had been unwrapped. It's just as pretty as I remember! I'm guessing the plumber wanted to take a look to see what he was up against? Hubby and E decided to check it out and make sure they still liked it as well.

I also took a few shots of the insulation on my big girl camera and made sure to document that we had indeed passed our inspections - woohoo!
We ordered our cabinets on Thursday and are now just waiting for the drywall work to begin. So exciting!
