Working on a Saturday when my husband is off can suck…but hey that’s how it goes sometimes. Matt and I try to make the most out of the free time that we have to spend together with the kids.
Friday night we spent the night on the boat. Tristan was out with a friend and Taya was working late. It was a perfect night, warm with a nice breeze that kept the bugs away and just the right temp for a good nights sleep!
Saturday morning Matt and I debated on going for a sail before I had to go into work but decided against it. So we choose to go looking for a patio set for a porch we have off of our second floor. There wasn’t a lot to choose from and some of the prices were crazy high. We stumble into one of my least favorite stores…..walmart and found a deal on four chairs and an outdoor rug, and at Target we found lots of fun Beaver Canoe accessories and 4 colorful ottomans that we made into a table. I actually can’t believe what we were able to fit into our lil VW Cabrio.
We could only 2 of the four chairs so Matt had to head back to Walmart while I went off to work.
I work with some pretty great people so the day was going by at a good pace and there were lots of laughs while we were working away. On my break I grabbed my phone to see if I had any texts and Matt had texted saying he had a surprise for me. I was guessing that he set up everything we had bought, and I couldn’t wait to come home and see what he had done.
Once I was all done work I practically sprinted home to find Matt on the 2nd floor porch he had put the chairs together, put the carpet down, put the ottomans in a pattern to create our table where he had bought candles and a cool tray that totally finished our little slice of serenity. Could I have been more stoked???? Hell no! My Matt is the shit and I never forget for one second how lucky I am!
Time to relax before we get back to the grind that Mondays bring.
Have a blissful night!
