I'm a 23 year old Business Systems Analyst planning a DIY-heavy wedding to the love of my life on 9 . 10 . 11. Other then wedding planning, I spend most of my time trying to stay in shape or playing with my 3 dogs...Gabby, Dudley, and Tyson. I hate cleaning and almost never go a day without wearing something purple, and I hope you can keep up with my ADD blogging style!

Such a Productive Weekend!

I love it when I can say that.  Bryan and I seriously had such a productive weekend.

Friday night I actually followed through on working out (woohoo), and then basically relaxed.

Saturday, I woke up, did some stretching, practiced painting candle holders in preparation of making my table numbers next weekend, went to my Weight Watchers meeting, went to Marshalls, got home and cleaned.  I cleaned like I have never cleaned before.  We have double pane windows that are a pain to clean.  I literally climbed out on the roof of our porch in order to properly clean all sides of the windows to our bedroom.  I scrubbed and sanitized every surface of our bathroom.  I think the chemicals may have burned the inside of my nose a bit, but I don't think our bathroom has ever been that clean before.  We even rented a carpet cleaner and Bryan did all the carpets.  It's an amazing feeling.

Then Saturday night we went to a Pirates game.  In Bryan's head, spring hasn't officially sprung until he's gone to a baseball game, so that was our kickoff to spring:
A little girl sitting next to us pulled out her tooth during the game, it was quite exciting, lol.  I enjoy baseball, but I didn't realize how cold it was going to get (it was warm during the day) and when my hands turned deathly white Bryan agreed we could leave, even though the game wasn't over yet.

Sunday, got up, worked on an Etsy order a little bit, got ready and we went and returned the carpet cleaner then headed to Ikea to start our registry!
Those of us in Pittsburgh are lucky in that the Ikea here even does registries.  But the computer you use to set it up is SO SLOW!  Apparently the Swedes can design some pretty nifty furniture, but their programming abilities kind of suck...
We were probably walking around/registering for about 2 hours.

And then we had to go to Costco to pick up some odds and ends and Walmart for random stuff and groceries.

Then when we got home I worked more on my Etsy order (it's almost done and has turned out even better then I thought it would), then I worked out, showered, ate, did a load of laundry, watched the Amazing Race and passed the eff out.

It was super busy.  It wasn't a restfull weekend at all.  But at least we accomplished a ton of stuff and had fun!

How was your weekend? (and yes, I realize it would have made much more sense for me to have posted this yesterday, but I'm still recovering from my busy weekend, lol)


  1. Sounds great! We wanted to register at Ikea, but couldn't do it all via the website, so we gave up. LOL.

  2. Wow! I had no idea you could register at some Ikeas. That's amazing.

  3. Oh ikea registry sounds like a good idea! I can walk into their little setups all day and pretend it is my home...haha.

  4. I'm glad you got to do everything you said you would do! I cleaned like a mad woman on Saturday too!
    P.S. I could walk around IKEA for HOURS!
