How Pinteresting! Weekend Wrap-up

We had such a restful weekend, in between using lots of Pinterest tips and tricks to get our almost-ready-to-move selves in some sort of order. 

I was dead tired by the time Friday rolled around. I came home, put on stretchy pants and an over-sized T-shirt and got cozy on the couch. Brandon brought home Chick-Fil-A and wine {I love that man!} and we just relaxed all evening. I fell asleep watching Dateline around 9:30 p.m. {I'm telling you, we're such party animals!!!} and Brandon told me to go crawl in bed. I happily obliged. 

We got on this cleaning rampage and felt the need to just purge before the big move. My office gave me lots of extra boxes, so I'm hoping we'll be relatively set when it's time to start packing. 

I got rid of a ton of random things in drawers and cabinets, Brandon sorted and tied together an entire drawer full of cords and cables, and I even mustered enough courage to toss my very first Dell laptop computer {circa 2005} that I'd been holding on to for who-knows-why. 

I spent the rest of the morning cleaning while Brandon went to the gym. I ran to the grocery store, then came home and did laundry and more cleaning out. 

We lazed around for the rest of the afternoon, watched W./E. and I made a yummy dinner. 

Brandon let me sleep in really late {yay!} and we just laid around all morning. I caught up on some TV shows, picked up a little and went to Bed, Bath & Beyond for some charcoal filters for the coffee pot and some wine vacuum stoppers

I then followed this guide and cleaned out our coffee maker. If you haven't done this, I suggest you do. Ours was getting sluggish and making one less cup than it was supposed to and generally just being slow. After using this guide, it's working like new again! It's amazing how disgusting your coffee maker can get. Ew! 

I stuck a yummy meal in the oven that afternoon {it had to cook for 2.5 hours!} and we just relaxed. After supper, Brandon felt the urge to purge {ha, just realized that rhymed...oops!} and we spent an hour or so cleaning out his closet and drawers. We got rid of FOUR trash bags full of stuff!!! 

Oliver came in the room and started playing with Brandon's "purge" ties. He looks like he is saying, "Dad, where did you get all these hideous ties?!" 

We finished the evening watching The Bachelorette {Jef-with-one-F, really?!} and called it a night. 

Happy Monday!
