I already posted about Patrick's birthday fun on Thursday, but I didn't tell you about the big "gift" Patrick got for his birthday - a new TV!
Yay! This is a huge upgrade over our old 32" TV. It a is 46" Sony something. I'm not electronic savvy.
Also on Thursday, Patrick & I had an assembly race. He put together a new desk for our office while I had to assemble a lamp and an office chair.
You can see the desk and the chair in the top picture and the lamp below. It was a close race, but Patrick ended up beating me. I probably shouldn't have taken that 2 hour nap at the start....another example of how slow and steady wins the race. In all honesty, I didn't actually finish the chair either. In my first attempt, I couldn't get the legs to attach and I screwed the arms on the wrong sides. It was a total fail so I gave up and let my husband work his magic. I do really like the end look. The desk came from Office Max on sale for $180, the chair came from Big Lots on sale for $36 and I found the lamp on clearance at Target for $15!
We also hung up some new decor in the office, but I am saving those items for a separate post so as not to jinx anything.
On Friday, we had a baseball Postseason Party to watch the beloved Cardinals take on the Giants in game 5 of the NLCS but it was not a winner so again - no pictures until I feel it is safe to post. My husband is extremely superstitous when it comes to baseball.
On Saturday, we did some thrift store shopping - still no luck finding the last piece for Patrick's Halloween costume. However, I did score a few goodies I didn't even know I needed.
Saturday afternoon Patrick watched the Notre Dame football game and helped me decorate for Halloween during commercial breaks. Our front yard has officially been spookified and I love it. I'll have to take pictures tomorrow so I can show you what I am so excited about.
Today I went to Perryville for my cousin Jennifer's baby shower. She is expecting twin girls in December - how exciting! She looks absolutely FABULOUS for being 7 months pregnant with twins.
That's all for now. More to come later this week. Go Cardinals!
