Weekend Snapshots 21



Holy Home Improvement Projects, Batman!  Dennis and I were super busy this past weekend with home improvement stuff, but we still managed to sneak in a little fun, too.  This edition of Weekend Snapshots is brought to you by Jack and Dennis working on putting down the new floors in our bathroom - yes, the same bathroom floor we had to rip up back in April because of a horrible, very bad, no good plumbing clog.  As always, this weekend recap link-up is hosted by yours truly and Ariana at 3twentysix.  Make sure to link-up with us and share your weekend happenings!

Saturday:  Because of Den's weird work schedule, this was the first weekend since the clog that we've really been able to dedicate to working on the bathroom.  Den has been slowly repairing the subfloors in preparation for laying the new tiles and this weekend was tile weekend!!!  Yay!!!  Jack was super ready to help.  After Dennis got the subfloors done, we headed to Lowe's to pick up the vanity and sink that we'll be installing.  It was early enough in the day that we thought we could just run in, get the vanity, and come home, but that one simple thing turned into an all day ordeal.  Getting the vanity was the easy part - it was in stock and all we had to do was go and get it, but when we got home, we unboxed it to discover the sink and counter were broken!!!  Whomp-whomp.  Lowe's was very nice and helpful and let us exchange it (I mean, we had it all of half an hour before we discovered the crack), but we still had to drive all the way back to the store and then home again.  Dennis and Jack spent the rest of the afternoon/evening laying out all the tile and snipping the pieces that needed to be snipped.  I finally decided on a color to paint the living room fireplace and I got busy tackling that project.  I tried to Facebok Live the painting, but my internet got all wonky and decided to cut out on me.  No matter, I used the timelapse feature on my iPhone and like that result a lot better.  What do ya'll think of the end result?

Sunday:  Sunday was Tile Day!!!  What-what!!!  We got a little bit of a late start on Sunday because Jack is a late sleeper and Den didn't want to use any power tools to mix the thinset mortar while Jack was still sleeping.  Jack went from asleep straight to help Daddy mode - I even had to feed him his breakfast while he was helping mix the mortar.  Our original plan was to lay the tiles, get cleaned up, and then join Ariana for Sunday Streets, but putting the tile down took a lot longer than we expected.  But that's okay because beautiful new bathroom floors!!!  Post tiling, we headed to Den's sister's new house for a housewarming party and since we were already on the east side of town decided to do a little urban exploring of Baytown.  They have a very cute downtown main street and town square park.  Plus a super cool downtown coffee shop - we'll definitely be spending some time in Baytown soon to do more exploring.

What were you up to this weekend?  Did you get any projects around the house done?  Done any urban exploring lately?  We'd love to hear about it!  Make sure to link up your posts and have an awesome week!!
