It's a whopper!!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Sunday!

My weekend has been filled to the brim! Friday me & Cody began stripping the wallpaper in my bedroom.  He was very amused! Go figure a 7 year old who likes tearing stuff up!! LOL I wasn't going to have him help but he came in to see what I was doing & then he was hooked! We worked on it for a few hours & it seems to be coming off pretty good. I'm going to finish it up this week & try to paint next weekend.

After Cody left with his dad, we decided to head up to Lake Erie & get a fish sandwich from Jolly Rogers Seafood House.  Boy was it yummy!!! It was nice to just go for a lil road trip with the honey (it took us about 1 1/2 hrs to get there!).

Then yesterday my mom & me went to some yard sales for a few hours.  We didn't find a ton of treasures but it was really nice to spend some time with each other.  I can't remember the last time we've went yard salin just the two of us!! So that was lots of fun. 

When I got home I had a package on my steps! I had won a giveaway from Tamera @ Country At Heart a lil while back & my prize had arrived!! I was very excited to see what was in the box...and boy I wasn't disappointed at all! Look at the adorable candle board she sent me! It is just perfect! She put so much time & thought into it ~ I just LOVE it! Now I've got to find the perfect spot for it. :)
She also sent me some very yummy smelling blueberry cookie tarts! I could smell them as soon as I started opening the box! Thank you again Tamera! I love it all! If you haven't checked out her blog - get on over there! She's one of the sweetest people I've met in blogland! Thanks Tamera for being my blogging friend!!

When the hubby got home a lil while later he announced he wanted to head to Shelby (about an hour away) to get some parts for his parents' lawnmower he's trying to fix.  I said "ok" & off we went.  When we get to Shelby they were in the middle of a parade! They were having some kind of festival & we had to cut around everyone/thing just to get to our destination!! We went to Glen's Surplus aka The Shelby Mall.  Now this was my first visit & I wasn't sure what to expect. The hubby said they had a little bit of everything & he wasn't kidding!! It was a huge old crusty warehouse that had lawnmower parts ~ tools~clothes~prim/country decor~machines~tires~wallpaper~holiday decor ~ anything you could imagine ~ they had!! I was pretty amused with their prim/country decor.  I told the hubby I could stay in there for days!!! I managed to control myself & picked out a wooden star & an old RC Cola crate. 



After our trip to Shelby we had to hurry & get ready to leave AGAIN!! One of the guys my hubby works with was having a HUGE party & we were invited.  They had like 5 bands, some pretty awesome fireworks, food & a huge bonfire.  It was a great time.

So now today we're trying to get a few things done around the house before we go pick Cody up @ 6pm.  I've missed my lil man BAD this weekend & can't wait to see him!! Our poor lil pool was neglected all weekend!! lol

Well I'm off here to work on the mountain of dishes ~ sorry this post was a lil long! I hope everyone enjoys their Sunday & gets some relaxin in before back to work tomorrow!!

Wow! Sounds like a packed weekend! I remember being young and having fun. Fun changes when you get older. sigh.....
Love that you have a buddy to help peel that wallpaper! How is he at dusting? That's my least favorite chore. I could use some assistance!
Your Mom's flowers look great. I can't wait to see Cody's bowling ball and your bedroom!
