We spent the weekend doing normal new homeowner type stuff. After a relaxing dinner out on Friday with some friends, we spent the majority of the rest of the weekend "working". I spent almost all of Saturday deep cleaning the kitchen...fun, fun! I cleaned out all the appliances, the counters, and the floor. I hadn't done the appliances since we moved in August, so it was definitely over due. I still need to do the refrigerator drawers because they were really full of food, so I decided to wait until we were running low on groceries and take care of that part then. Everything else got cleaned: oven, microwave, sink, etc.
Craig spent Saturday in the yard, and what a nice day to spend outside! We had planted the magnolia tree last week, so he started off the day running to Lowe's to pick up some mulch to go around it and other things we needed. After he put the mulch out, he sprayed some weeds and decided to mow. After all of that we showered and decided to grill some chicken for cesar salads. We finally got out of the house for a drive and some ice cream Saturday night!
On Sunday, we invited Craig's parents down to Lincoln for lunch. We grilled steaks for lunch...Craig did a great job! After lunch and the latest show and tell at the house, we headed back to Lowe's to look at some replacement plants for areas Craig had cleaned up on Saturday. We started looking for two plants, and came home with ten! We got two azalea bushes, two rhododendron bushes, four Asiatic lily plants, and a butterfly bushes. Everything was planted by 6p.m., and we finished the weekend with dinner in the backyard with friends!
So...most boring post ever, but we both felt good about the progress this weekend. Yep! That's right, we're boring, old, married, homeowners now! Woo-Hoo!
