My Laborfilled Labor Day Weekend

This weekend I lived at work. I worked Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Four out of the Five days I was lucky enough to close until 10pm -LOVELY. But thankfully on Friday I got off of work at 5 so I got to have a bit of fun.

Our friends Stephanie and Anthony BBQ'd us steaks for dinner and made some delish potatoes! YUM! After dinner I had Josh hang up my latest decorative purchase that I picked up at Bed Bath and Beyond with my 20% off coupon :) I've been wanting something to hang on the wall in the kitchen and I thought this would be perfect because it is a little different!
Up close of the plates, they are really pretty autumn colors
The kitchen table area with the new addition, don't mind the hideous light fixture haha
Then after we were done hanging the plate art I realized that the box it came in would make a perfect sled. So we headed to the stairs.....


And yes I am wearing Josh's fur hat. When I got to the top of the stairs I realized I should wear some sort of head protection in case my ride took a turn for the worse and the first thing I could find was Josh's hat haha

Then Josh gave it a whirl, only after I did it twice and made it out alive haha

After a few sled rides down the stairs we had a fun game night playing Taboo and Sorry! then followed it up with watching some shows off of our DVR while eating brownies and ice cream :) Overall it was a great night, I just wish I would of had at least ONE more night off this holiday weekend, but ohhhhh well!

I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday weekend!

I love those plates! Nick would think I was weird if I wanted to put something like that on our walls. as it is he thinks I'm weird for a lot of the things I already do.

Sorry you had to work, but it sounds like you still had some fun. The sledding video is classic and the fur hat is too funny. That is something I would attempt ;)

The plates look really nice in the kitchen and I love the colors!
