Perfectly Productive.

This weekend was so perfect. It was the first time we didn't have any plans since being in our house and it was a beautiful thing. I cleaned the bathrooms, did laundry, dusted, Shredded, scrubbed the floors, and did dishes.
Garth and I explored our new city library and I checked out Tori Spelling's new book and a few Hungry Girl cookbooks. We went grocery shopping to get some staples to make some HG meals this week and then went to Kohl's and Walmart to look at artwork.
We have been unpacked for a while now, but have had nothing on walls. We had limited wall space in our apartment so we just filled the space with wedding photos. Now that we have a home we want to be a bit more sophisticated. It has been fun shopping and looking at decor but we are so indecisive and have different taste. But this weekend we agreed on a few pieces, purchased them and hung them up on our walls. Our house is really starting to look like a home! I can't wait to show it all to you, but for now we just have one room completed so it may be a while before the big reveal.
We went to church and I think it was the best sermon on grace I have ever heard. I have to admit that going to a church where we don't know anybody has been difficult. I'm used to either going to church with my family or our friends so it is weird to be in and out without any interaction. But yesterday we ran into my co-worker at church and we talked for a while and made plans to have dinner during the week. We are also talking about volunteering at our new church so we get to know more people so I know it's just a matter of time.
And this morning we woke up to 8 inches of snow! Shoveling the driveway was intense but sledding in our backyard afterwards helped me to enjoy the snow. Happy Monday!

Sounds like the perfect weekend! When we first moved into our house our walls were bare as well...it made such a difference to get a few things on the walls!

I’m so glad you’re getting the house together and can’t wait to see the big reveal! It’s so fun to decorate. I’m going to try and make a recipe from the HG cookbook this week too. There are so many good ones.

That is nice that you found a new church and I’m sure you and Garth will be getting to know everyone in no time!

I checked out a "Hungry Girl" cookbook at the library this weekend too! I've already marked several recipes in there I'd like to try.

Have fun decorating the house! :)

I know the feeling. When I got married and moved it was so hard to get connected with another church. I was heavily involved in my old church and I knew EVERYONE. Luckily we found a good church and made new friends but now we are moving again! oh my! lol

Make transitions to a new church can be so difficult! I hope you make many new friends, soon! :)

Glad you had a great weekend exploring and decorating. I can't wait to see everything. I'm still finding things for our house after 8 years. It's finally starting to all come together. :)
