We had a fantastic Memorial Day weekend! On Saturday we picked up an old table and chairs that we purchased using Craigslist. We spent the day in Ty's workshop sanding and prepping for paint and stain (I have lots of pictures to show off! This is our first renovation project!)
Sunday was a crazy day! Ty left for work at 6 in the morning and walked in a 9:00 pm, only to be called back to work at 11! It was a long day for everyone. Monday arrived and totally made up for Sunday. Ty had the day off. There was some more sanding and a trip to Home Depot and then the painting began! I made cinnamon rolls with the kids which turned out to be kind of a bad idea because I ate more than my fair share! We ate some more delicious food and Ty worked really hard on the table and chairs. We are hoping to finish up tonight or tomorrow.
Today is Tuesday, and I will have to tell myself that all day long because yesterday felt like a Saturday and now I am all confused! Tonight I am making these steak sandwiches from the pioneer woman. She says they are her husbands (aka: Marlboro Man) favorite. I am sure my husband will appreciate them as well. I am going to serve them up with some cheesy roasted potatoes so the kids will be happy too!

I hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful holiday weekend. Here's to a great week!
