Big News = Busy Weekend

Hi friends, and happy Monday (said no one ever). Although, my kids are on a mini Fall Break, so I'm off work today...which drastically improves the outlook of my Monday. We're heading out for a family day, but I hope to scope the Nate Berkus for Target collection first (if there's anything left!). I'm looking forward to a relaxing day, after our crazy weekend full of projects.

So you know when you're having house guests and you run around like a crazy person getting things ready? I mean, it's okay to have broken blinds, half-painted chairs, and your piano leg supported by blocks when it's just your family in the house. But when others come over, you don't want to be constantly explaining the unfinished projects.

Now what if those guests happen to be a certain Young couple, who blog about a House, they are DIYing, with lots of Love?!? This said couple is touring the country with their new book, and have asked to House Crash the Sugarplum casa while in town! Needless to say, we used this long weekend to get a few things done...here's some sneak peeks.

These are all projects I've talked about doing, so you may recognize a few. I'll show you the results in the coming weeks. There's no guarantee the House Crash will happen, since they don't know their schedule yet, but we'll be kind of ready if it does! But the weekend wasn't all trigger blisters and wrecked manicures, we had fun family time and new milestones, too.

Babygirl ditched her training wheels...this triumphant smile melts me.

Success!

And our son became an expert rock-skipper. All very important life skills.

Skipping rocks.

And as always, copious amounts of food were involved. Can you even believe this is a veggie burger?! Or, was a veggie burger, since it took me all of two minutes to toss it down.

Heaven on a bun. #veggieburger #best #houstons #gone

So how was your weekend? Did you paint 4 chairs, a bench, and a lampshade? How manic do impending house guests make you?!

  1. I cannot even imagine the tizzy I would be thrown into knowing about possible house guests as talented as your possible house guests. I think I might have to hook myself up to an IV or something. Can't wait to see the finished projects!

  2. Shut the front door! Oh girl, I so hope they stop by. You deserve it! I love the pressure of having someone coming to make me get things done...no better motivation.

  6. First off, CONGRATS on the Youngsters coming to visit! How exciting!!! This past weekend we had a dinner party guests who read my blog but have never visited my house, so I was running around like a crazy person cooking AND making sure every room looked beautiful at the same time.

  10. Ooh how exciting! I hope they manage to fit in a crash with their busy schedule. House guests make me get my but in gear! I sort of wish we had some people scheduled to visit so I can get over my inability to finish the gallery wall in our room!

  13. Ahhh so exciting to have them come stay with you! How fun is that? Well, fun once you have the house in tip top shape...I would be the same way as you!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Awesome! Hope they come by. That'd be so fun! And, we'd all love the posts about it. I bet it's tough scurrying around, yet not knowing for sure if it's going to happen. AHH!

  15. No way!! I would be making my husband so crazy it wouldn't be funny ~ they don't quite get the urgency and importance of it all! :)

  16. how exciting! YHL in the HOUUZE! Hope you all can make it happen. I did a little Halloween decorating (finally) and we had to seriously clean out my rental house, including allll the carpeting (Yuk) - but we were loving the weather! Can't wait to see the things you did.

  17. I hope they stop by your casa, how exciting. I want to stuff my face with that veggie burger right now. and big props to baby girl and boy- two big milestones!!

  18. OMG Cassie, you lucky duck! Although if I were in your shoes I would probably be paralyzed with fear and be spending the next few weeks getting the cat hair dust bunnies out from every corner of my house! ha. I hope I get to see your house on YHL!

    ReplyDelete
  19. If Sherry & John were stopping by my house, I would be giddy with excitement, nervous as can be and running around like a crazy person cleaning/straightening/fixing everything!!!!! I hope I get to see your house on YHL. I love all you guys!!!

    Congrats to baby girl learning to ride her bike and to your son for learning rock skipping. Rock skipping is something I never got right. Good thing my hubby can teach my little man because that is a life skill boys need! At least southern boys :)

  20. That is so exciting! Hope it works out with their schedule so your hard work isn't for nothing. At least you can share all the projects with us :-)

  21. So awesome if the come by! Do you know when? I am crazy crazy too just having my mother in law coming. I make myself nuts for sure. Too much to do. Counting down the minutes until I get to see you!

  22. How fun to have blogging house guests!! And a great way to get through your to-do list! Hosting overnight guests or the holidays is just about the only way I finish anything around here!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I am so jealous of your possible guests! Not that I would want to get my house in order (list is way too long), but I would love to spend time with them. They seem so fun and I would have a million DIY questions to ask.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yay! Congrats! I hope the crash happens... and um, that burger. It's making me ravenous.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I wondered where all the motivation for those spray paint projects was coming from! Though you usually have a ton of great projects up your sleeve.

    Congrats on the upcoming house crash! I would be going crazy knowing they were coming and not knowing when!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Did you find any of the Nate goodies at Target? That's super exciting about YHL! Eeeek! I'm sure everything will be fab! And look at her go on her bike!

  30. Squeal!!! I would be a mess running around trying to get things done. That's perfect motivation though! Congrats to your little one on going training-wheel-less, that's big stuff! And that burger - it's not even 8:00 am and now I NEED a burger ASAP :D

    ReplyDelete
