I took a vacation day on Friday so I could spend a day with Ronnie and the babe before his Spring Break ended and we had the most fun day ever. It was nearly 80 degrees out and breezy so we decided a picnic was a must...but we didn't want any old picnic so we took a trip out to New Braunfels and ordered some food to go from BJ's then took it to Landa Park. We had our picnic, walked the trails, took a ride on the train and grabbed some coffee on the way out of New Braunfels back home. Seriously, best day ever. Violet loves being outdoors so she had an especially good day, I think :)
Saturday was spent doing some Spring cleaning! Ronnie cleaned the yard and started organizing the garage. LOOK AT THIS. Holy eff shit we have a lot of stuff. This is just about half of the garage. You can't see the other side but it has my Christmas décor. When we moved in we just threw shit in there because we never park our cars in there anyway buuut the time has come to finally purge and organize the hell out of everything! (That was my 2013 resolution!)
While Ronnie did that, I worked inside. I sent Ronnie with a bin and huge IKEA bag of toys to a nearby resale shop and because everyone and their mom is spring cleaning too, they didn't accept a whole lot of stuff but we managed to get $20 for a handful of things so that was nice! We sold a few things on Craigslist too. As for V's clothes, any mamas looking for girls NB-6 month clothes? I'm going to set up a page here to sell those items.
Ronnie and I became fully addicted to Netflix this weekend too - and to Breaking Bad. We have so much to catch up on with that show but we are totally up for the challenge. We watched I think 5 episodes in between all of the cleaning and I also watched a couple Mad Mens last night. It's so nice that V plays independently nowadays, makes for some fun TV catch up time ;)
And just to have it on record, Violet took a couple steps on Thursday night, a couple more on Friday and then both days this weekend she took about 4 steps at once. She is well on her way to walking!! In case anyone is even interested (because my life is just oh-so-interesting), I took this video last night and caught her taking a couple running steps. ha. She hasn't mastered it but is definitely trying.
Disclaimer: My living room and carpet may be messy but they are not dirty. The lighting came out weird on video and my carpet looks downright dirty. Gross. If it was that dirty, my kid wouldn't be playing around on it. Just saying ;)
