Saturday morning we Skyped with my parents. They are in France right now...they'll be there for a couple weeks visiting friends. Then they'll be heading to Switzerland via train for a couple more weeks to visit my cousin. He & his wife just had their second baby - he is three weeks old now! I wish we could've joined them on this trip! We miss bunches, so it's awesome to be able to sit & chat with them online!
I've wanted to recover the chairs at our breakfast table for a long, long time. And a couple weeks ago we got new living room & bedroom furniture, which made the old chairs look that much more shabby. So, Saturday morning we headed out the door to start our day & upholstery was one of the many items on our list for the day. I'm really happy with how they turned out, too - Michael did the heavy lifting for me - taking the chairs apart & pulling old staples, then I recovered them, & he put them all back together for me! Originally I wanted a much lighter fabric - but in the end I just really liked this pattern and the hints of colors in it, so while I didn't lighten the chairs up a whole lot, I think they definitely got prettied up!
Along with helping me recover the chairs, Michael also hung some great shelves in the potty room (yeah, that's what I call it) in our bathroom - I will post pics when that is complete. I still want to do some more painting & put up some sconces in there. He also replaced our doorbell, which has been on the fritz for a while...sounds much better now!
After all the running around Saturday, Emma & I decided our feet needed a break...and a little pampering!
My pedicure was long overdue...
Ahhhh...that's much better!
I also gave myself a quick 5 minute manicure using this gem from Sally Hansen! I don't do my right hand quite as well, but it still turned out pretty good!
And we spent some time playing outside - the rain is gone, but the heat is pretty brutal, so our time outside was in short bursts! Long enough to get pretty flowers from my sweet girl, though!
Saturday night they were both pretty worn out from the busy day - they both crashed out in our bed all snuggled up!
After we ate we headed home - Aaron napped, Emma "rested", and Michael finished out some more honey do's for me...he put in some hours for me this weekend - gotta thank that man!! When it cooled down we ventured back out for frozen yogurt. Aaron discovered the cool chairs & decided that they were his "time tunnel" (Dinosaur Train reference) and kept crawling through them! LOL
