Scenes from our weekend

We had a pretty productive weekend in the Park household!

FIRST I would like to pass that I am now up to 1300 items purged from my household! HUGE accomplishment from the weekend!

We also, ripped out the current closet in the boy's bedroom. We purchased a ClosetMaid system from Home Depot... We still have a ways to go (Patching, Painting, assembling) but at least we have started and I hope to be done by next weekend. Thinking that we can tackle a little each night.

Gibson was highly amused by all of the activity surrounding the closet! AND speaking of Gibson he had a big weekend, in terms of development! He learned how to crawl safely down the steps and learned how to crawl on/off the sofa!

Matt cleaned and put together Hunter's new big boy 5 point harness Britax Car seats! We feel so blessed that we received these as a hand me down from my sister-in-law... this was a savings of over $500! There were two pieces that were missing but we were able to buy replacement parts from Britax for only $50. Once the parts come in Hunter will go into these and Gibson will go into the car seat that Hunter has been in... Flipped backwards of course.

Went to Emma's Soccer game!

We instituted a NO ELECTRONICS rule in the house this weekend, for the kiddos, and it was AMAZING! As a family we played games, Emma did a lot of bike riding, and just spent quality time TOGETHER. Emma even let Hunter touch her legos!

We purchased a sofa from Joss and Main! The Camden Sofa in Gray. She is big at 90" and we are so excited! My parents bought her for me as an early birthday gift! I'm a little on edge about buying a sofa that I've never sat on (something I said I would NEVER do) but the chance to get this $1695 sofa for only $691 was too good of a deal to pass up. Fingers crossed this gamble pays off!


  1. Hi, I was considering ordering this same sofa, but I'm super nervous not seeing it in person. Have you received it yet? I would love you to post an up date on it :) Love your style. Thanks!

    1. Melissa- DON'T BUY IT!!! We HATE the sofa! I will be sure to do an update this tomorrow... Just need to go home and take a few photos of a few of the things that I do not like about it.
