Weekend Recap: 3 reasons I felt like an adult this weekend

This weekend was filled with a bunch of things that reminded me more and more that I am growing up and becoming an adult.  Just last week, Danny and I moved out of our 1 bedroom apartment in Willoughby.  I had been living there the past three years and Danny moved in almost a year ago.  When we bought our house in April, we still had a few months of overlap between the house and the apartment.  At first, we thought this was nice since we could move things out of our apartment at our own pace, but it really just increased our procrastination to the point of no return.  After finally getting everything moved to the house, living and non living, we piled the boxes in our new garage for us to go over at a later date.  This weekend was our later date.  After investing time, money, and energy into just the house this weekend, I officially feel like a home owning adult.  Below are the threes reasons I felt like an adult this weekend:

1.  Everything we bought this weekend, was for the house. This included a patio set, pool cleaner, and even a hammock for our backyard! BTW, the hammock purchase was my favorite purchase for the house yet.  Since our backyard is a mini forest, it is the perfect accessory to our outdoor living space!

Yogi wasn't so sure of the hammock, he's showing his baby teeth!
2. We are now Sam's Club members.  So we bit the bullet and are now members of Sam's Club.  After shopping in bulk this weekend, I'm trying to figure out how to eat all of this food.  Future plans include planning meals entirely so I don't waste any food we buy.

3. Saturday night consisted of catching up on my reality TV shows and making homemade popcorn.  So although I work the next day, I can tell I am an adult because of how I spend my weekend nights.  I love staying in and watching some of my favorite shows/movies with my husband.  This past Saturday we caught up on some of my reality TV shows like Catfish (its back for another season!) and Pregnant & Dating which follows the lives of several women that are pregnant, but still trying to find Mr. Right (very intriguing and obviously addicting).  We also made homemade popcorn! Danny received an old time popcorn machine as a Christmas gift last year and we finally got it out and used it!

Yogi was very intrigued!

Tom petty and the Heartbreakers Weekend

I have learned many things from my husband and probably one of the more important things I've learned about his likes and dislikes would have to be his obsession with Tom Petty.  I never really knew who Tom Petty was growing up and as soon as Danny and I met and started dating, he sought out to change this about me.  Danny grew up listening to a lot of Rock and Roll.  Some of his favorites include the Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and of course Tom Petty.  I grew up listening to a lot of different kinds of music and never really had a favorite artist, I just liked anything that had a good beat and that I could dance to. 

It all started with the first weekend I went to Danny's hometown to spend the weekend with his parents.  The first night was our first official "Tom Petty night" which is what they are still referred to to this day.  We stayed up until 5 in the morning listening to Tom Petty concerts and talking with his parents.  It was an amazing day and one I will never forget.

Fast forward a year and tour dates for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers were just released.  Since my husband and his family have seen him 6 or 7 times, I had a feeling we would get tickets.  I knew going into marriage that not creating my own obsession with Tom Petty was a deal breaker.  Fortunately for the both of us, I enjoy Tom's music and we even incorporated some of his songs into our wedding.  I was very excited to see "The Man" in person since I have listened to his music and heard his story so often in the last year of being with Danny.

Below are some of my favorite pictures from the concert.  It was a blast and went by way too fast.

Weekend Pin Craft: Doggie Bed

This weekend, I decided to make a new doggie bed for Yogi.  Since he is still a baby, he ripped his original crate bed to shreds and I realized he needed something a little more sturdy if it was going to make it to adulthood. This craft was inexpensive (around $20 total) and required just an hour total to put together.

The supplies you will need for this craft are two pillows, two separate fleece designs, and a pair of fabric scissors.  I bought inexpensive pillows at Target, they were two for $5.00.  I got 1 1/2 yards of each fleece fabric to cover the two pillows and have more than enough room in between the pillows and the seams to make it big enough for Yogi's crate.

First step is to lay out the pillows and the fleece where you want it to lay.  I had a lot of space in between so the pillows could move around, but you can also make the pillows snug. Next, you want to cut about 4 inch square on all four corners as shown below.

Next step is to start cutting strands that reach the top of your four inch squares on all four sides for the ties.  Next tie them twice to make sure they do not come undone.  After all four sides are done, your doggie bed is complete!  I loved this idea since it was cheap, easy, and everything is completely machine washable in case the puppy has any accidents in his crate.

Puppy Approved!
