How’s everyone’s week going so far? Did you guys have a great weekend?
Our weekend started off unexpectedly, after I wound up having a bit of an incident with a deer on my way home from picking up the boys from daycare on Friday.
Fortunately (VERY fortunately) the boys are fine. I’m fine. The deer literally ran out of nowhere from behind a car traveling the opposite way and I could do nothing but just barely break before hitting him dead on. I’ve replayed the whole scenario in my head a hundred times with all sorts of what-ifs (what if the deer jumped and hit our windshield, what if there was a car behind us…) and all I can do is be thankful that we all ended up okay.
The police arrived within just a few minutes of my call, and Jay arrived shortly after that to bring us home after the tow truck arrived. Lucas was quite excited to have a “real police officer” coming to help us, who was very nice, although he did get quite upset once he saw the “boo boo” my car got. There were all sorts of tears after that.
And, I feel ya, buddy. Because, unfortunately, my car is not fine.
$5000+ in damage later, and the car is totaled. So we’re currently on the lookout for something new. We’ve actually been considering getting a new car for me for well over a year now, but were hoping to wait until Lucas starts kindergarten in the fall (AHH, can’t talk about it) so we’d be saving a little extra money on daycare. But hey, sometimes plans change, so car shopping it is!
I’m looking into a few different SUV’s, so if you happen to have one you love and/or know how to score an awesome deal on one, I’m ALL ears. : )
Despite our rough start on Friday evening, the rest of our weekend went just fine. We laid low, mostly because I’m all #germophobemode right now and afraid to go anywhere with the boys. But we made the most of it by having fun inside and playing out in the snow a bit, too.
I also had Jay help me by hanging one of the pieces I got while down at Magnolia Market last month.
Here’s the before wall (those sticky hooks have been on that wall for over 2 years…yikes)…
And here’s the after!
(Notice the patched up wall, thanks to the paint peeling off from those darn hooks…)
I got the arch and the galvanized jugs from Magnolia Market, and I found the wreath at At Home. It’s simple, but I love it. <3
We also didn’t do much of anything for the Super Bowl either, but Jay did make some killerrrrr quesadillas and homemade guacamole for dinner that night, so it was a win.
How about you guys? Do anything fun for the Super Bowl? What’s happening this week??
