anniversary to acorns to weight to sneak peek...oh my

Last Sunday was our sixth wedding anniversary... 

This last year has been tough...I mean rough stuff, really. From trying to figure out how to raise a baby to packing, moving, and renovating a house it has not been an easy one. I'm happy to say we're finally coming out of it though and although we've had our moments I think we're stronger for going through these things together. 
Instead of getting a babysitter so we could go out we just waited to celebrate after bedtime. Saturday night we picked up some PF Chang's, treated ourselves to pints of Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream, and watched season four of Modern Family. Nothing too exciting but relaxing for us.
Every year we walk around the park where Joel proposed and we got married so we went after church on Sunday. This year it was a little chilly and rainy so we pretty much had the park to ourselves.

Walking around the park...

and searching for acorns...

which I turned into felted acorns. (sold at Redtree Coffee Shop)

Ok, so last week I started my six month challenge to lose this extra weight by my birthday. I weighed myself on Tuesday and I haven't lost weight yet but I do feel better. I am drinking more water/less soda and I've been walking every day. I am also taking a supplement that is all natural and supposed to help with my metabolism. Here's to another week and hopefully seeing results!
The sneak peek from my title is referring to the last room we needed to renovate downstairs. It was also the last room with wallpaper so we've really been putting it off. The wallpaper is gone, the room is painted, and in the process of being decorated. Next weekend we are picking up a sleeper sofa Joel's mom is giving to us, which means we will have to move our stuff upstairs for good. I am so excited about this room. It will serve as an informal living room, guest room, and kind of a playroom. Three walls are painted the same gray as the other rooms but to change things up I painted an accent wall black. I am really happy with it too. We are going to make it our family picture wall.

Hope you have a great weekend!
