I couldn’t be happier that it’s finally Friday because I have so much to do around the house this weekend. Erik’s going to be out of town so it will be completely up to me to try and stay motivated to get some things checked off my ever-growing to-do list before the baby shower next Saturday.

Here is my (probably a bit too ambitious) list of goals for the weekend:

Saturday--It’s supposed to be raining in the ATL so I will be forced to focus on inside projects including:
·         Re-covering my dining room chairs with fabric I picked up at Hobby Lobby for 50% off (woo-hoo!)
·         Painting trim in the hallway and kitchen
·         Priming my thrifted shelf/coat rack for hallway

Sunday (hopefully to be nicer weather than Saturday):
·         Mulch and plant flowers in front yard flower beds
·         Paint shelf for hallway
·         Hang some pictures
·         Begin process of organizing laundry room

Like I said it’s probably a little ambitious but it’s good to have goals, right? We’ll see how much I get done at any rate. It’s times like these where I wish Mary Poppins would show up and I could just snap my fingers and everything would just get done by itself but I keep telling myself this is part of the fun of home ownership.

Speaking of which—I OWN A HOUSE!!! Sometimes I just have to remind myself because it still seems a bit surreal. Thanks for indulging me on that one.
