Friday night we grabbed a quick dinner and then headed to Target to pick up our new planters. After that we went to Lowe's to get stuff to fill them!! Just getting #TheCoatsHome ready for plant at a time! 

Saturday we woke up and I made one of our favorites, sausage roll ups! We had a slow start to our Saturday, eating breakfast and watching a few episodes of How I Met Your Mother and then we got up and got to work around the house...

Trimming all of our bushes out front, pulling weeds and putting the planters together! If you look at the bottom left of this picture you can see a small peak at them! I can't wait to share them with you soon. Matthew cut down one of the bushes in the right of this picture and we plan on taking the second one out this coming weekend.

I also cleaned out my office. We put the rest of our unpacked totes in there as well as other stuff we hadn't gotten a chance to put up yet, and it ended up being a huge mess. I haven't had much time to work on that room until this weekend so that was very high on my priority list this past weekend. Here is the 'before''s bad.
I forgot to take and 'after' picture, but just know EVERYTHING is gone out of that room, except my beautiful desk!! I'm so excited to have it clean and looking like a real room now! I can't wait to get in there and decorate!
Late Saturday afternoon we went over to my aunt and uncle's house for my cousin's graduation party. It was fun to see everyone, and as always, there was a ton of delicious food! The weather this weekend has been very mild...almost chilly. We had the windows open all day Saturday and Sunday and it was great!

Sunday after church we ran to Lowe's to pick up painting supplies...because we got a FIVE gallon bucket of paint. We are so excited to start painting our house. We decided to go with Agreeable Gray by Sherwin Williams for the whole house. It's a beautiful neutral color and we are very excited! The color on the wall in the picture below is a darker beige. I'll update soon on everything after we get it all painted!

We ended up making 3 Lowe's trips this weekend!

Sunday night for dinner I made meatball subs...SO good but SO messy!
