What A Weekend!

Hey Y'all! Happy Monday to ya! How was your weekend?

Our weekend was pretty awesome and even a little productive! 

Saturday morning I did a little Spring cleaning; I tackled my kitchen cabinets as well as my hall closest which also serves as Addison's second closet. Yes, the child has two closets. 

I learned two things during this process. 

1) Our medicine cabinet makes us look like we're a bunch of sickies. It's packed and this is after I cleaned it out. We rarely get sick!

2) I have a problem hoarding gift bags + tissue paper. I had three large gift bags full of other folded up gift bags. There was also a large bag full of used tissue paper. Complete ridiculousness. I consolidated everything into one bag. Go me!

Once I grew tired of cleaning (didn't take long) I got started on a couple DIY projects. I'm so excited to show you guys the finished product! Except they aren't finished yet :) I should finish everything up this week sometime so it won't be long! 
Here is a little sneak peek for now. 

When Sunday morning rolled around we told the kiddos we were going on an adventure. We sent them on a hunt to gather everything they might need - we were thinking flashlight, binoculars, notebook/pen, sunglasses, etc. 

What they actually brought was a puzzle, two stuffed animals, a net, a notebook/pen, their two favorites books, a hair brush, and a purse. Things that make you go hmm..

Anyhow, we traveled about an hour and a half up to Sam Houston National Forest and we spent the day hiking and exploring. Added bonus: myfitnesspal says I burned almost 700 calories. SCORE! It was a fabulous family day.

What were y'all up to all weekend?
