Thrilling Thursdays..

per the second graders that did the announcements today! It has been a crazy but productive week at the Lenz Casa. We have emptied a few more boxes, emptied the suitcases and done a ton of laundry! It sure does feel great to get things checked off the to-do list. On that note, the hubs has been checking things off left and right! He has fully embraced being a homeowner and I love seeing him get excited about projects around the house he has completed. He has become quite the handy man! Speaking of the hubs, I was feeling pretty sickly by the time I got home yesterday..he let me sleep and lounge while he cleaned out some boxes at his parents. He called to tell me he was on his way home and had a surprise for me..yay! He made me close my eyes and placed it in my hands! I opened my eyes to this:

Such a great surprise! If you know me, you know I love anything Snowman! They are "my thing" when it comes to Christmas time! He told me he got it because I was feeling sick and he wanted to make me feel better..what a hubster! You see Jonathan and I decided that we would wait to buy yard decorations once they went on sale this year because it seems silly to spend anywhere from 50 to 150 bucks on yard decor this first time around. So the plan is to check out other people's yards to determine what we want and go from there. Our front yard isn't incredibly large, so we won't need a lot to decorate. I am thinking a few reindeer and lights and then we should be set! Who knows I need to get through Halloween first!

I am going to leave you with a picture of our guest is a work in progress, but you can see the direction we are headed in with the bedding.

We are working on trying to decide what kind of headboard we want at the moment. I want something light and clean. This bed will have its first overnight guest next month with Thanksgiving on the horizon. Granted it will be my brother, but still I am excited for him to come stay here with us! It will be fun having him around for the long weekend since he is in San Antonio attending St. Mary's University. I am sure he will expect some gourmet breakfast every morning and I will laugh and say Shipley's is about 2 minutes away! Joking..I will make our staple breakfast that we enjoy every holiday..Sarah Lee's Coffee Cake..yum yum yum. Sure does make me want to run to HEB right now..

Happy Friday everyone!
