Hi, hello and how are you?!?
I sometimes feel like a broken record with these weekend recaps (“it was great…it was short…can we please have more time together”…) but I really enjoy sharing a few pictures of our family time. This weekend we tackled the home improvement project from hell. There’s just no other way to put it. The project?
We painted our basement floors.
Except we didn’t.
We painted like a quarter of what we’d hope to paint. I’m not sure if you’ve ever done this type of work yourself, but the process of painting concrete is exhausting (and expensive!). We set out to paint about 1,000 sq. feet of floor (which in hindsight was just way too much) and ended up painting around 300 sq. ft. <-even this took a lot of time. I’m sure it didn’t help that we’re inexperienced and have a 70-year old basement floor but I still think it would be a hard project for anyone (or maybe it’s really easy and we’re just wimps?). The actual painting was a breeze – the preparation work before you can paint…that’s the hard part. Anyway, lesson learned and now we’ve got this neat little (out-of-place) patch of beautifully painted cement in the corner of our basement. Hehe.
Live and learn, right? I’ll try and remember to share the finished look when it’s completed (we still have one last step to do).
Here’s the weekend in pictures (no particular order):
^^We’ve been having “Smoovie” night every week. I make a big batch of peanut butter-banana smoothies and we drink them while watching a movie. It’s the best.^^
^^Review to come this week– still learning all about this new Polar F60.^^
^^On Saturday morning, the Track Stars group completed “Hit The Deck.” They LOVED it (I think….).
^^I like to document our group through pictures but we’re kinda running out of poses. ^^
^^Meal prep. For more time saving tips, go here.^^
^^Like puttin’ lipstick on a pig.^^
^^Postpartum hair loss is no joke. I think this past month has been the worst.^^
^^I just ordered these. I’ve yet to put them on. Have you tried Jamberry yet?^^
^^This x2 plus allllll the coffee.^^
QUESTION: Best thing you ATE all weekend???
