Also, after lunch my friend Katy and I stopped by a local bookstore's street sale and stumbled upon this gem:
Since this weekend was going to be really nice outside (albeit cold on Saturday/Sunday), Jon and I decided to tackle all the things we've been too busy to do.
Goals for the weekend:
1. Fix the plumbing in the shower (Jon did this...I just cheered him on and cleaned the rest of the house)
2. Finish/Redo the kitchen: On our first weekend together, Jon and I tore up the linoleum in his kitchen with the intent of replacing it with vinyl tile. Instead, we ended up living with the plywood sub-floor until this weekend (total 5 months). Though, once we decided to do the floor and had to take out all the appliances for that, we thought we might as well just go ahead and repaint/put up the backsplash for the oven while the appliances were already in the living room. Result: brand new kitchen!
3. Go to the Farmer's Market
4. Go for a morning run (Didn't happen... Oops)
5. Grill out with Beth and Steve (Happened, but sadly there are no pictures. Extra bonuses from grilling out: I've finally tasted and fallen in love with parsnips and Jon has learned how to play Apples to Apples!)
Jon spent all Friday night fixing the shower--so Saturday morning, we didn't wake up early enough to run, but we *did* however make it in time to go to the Athen's Farmer's Market. Jon'd never been and I've been wanting to take him since we started dating, but, sadly, not a lot of fresh produce growing in the winter. Saturday was super windy and cold, so we didn't get to stay too long, but while were were there we did manage to grab THIS amazing creation from the local pizza joint Avalanche's bakery:
Then, we came home and conquered the kitchen:
Anyways, busy, but productive weekend. No running, but I definitely didn't sit around and do nothing instead. Whew! Now onto the master bedroom! It's going to be an interesting project because not only did the former owners paint it navy, but then they feathered some silver paint on top of that. Plus, we're going to tackle the carpet replacement on our own... Any tips and pointers would DEFINITELY be appreciated!
