This weekend has been an amazing one for recharging. Both physically and spiritually.
I posted last week about the entryway table I painted to match our door. Boy, am I in love with it now. I was about to donate it, but I decided to give it one last chance and paint it. And I adore it.
With no further ado, here is the new/old member of the family.
I love that it matches the door to a T. It looks so much more modern even though it’s the same table. Nothing like a fresh coat of paint. I also added this cute pumpkins from JoAnn and now i feel like we are ready for Fall.
But now, on to the weekend!
This Saturday we were finally able to fulfill our father’s day gift to my father in law. We are a Philadelphia teams family, but we don’t get to see too many games since we are in VA. But this weekend the Phillies were in town, so we bought tickets for the whole family to attend.
Unfortunately, we had a family emergency the day before, so half of the family had to stay behind. We were left with 5 tickets that we were not going to use. So we did the next best thing: we gave them out!
We made 5 strangers super happy and they got to enjoy a free game (that the Nationals won) on really good seats too! It felt really good to make someone else happy, specially when they least expected it.
We got amazing seats, but unfortunately no foul balls came our way. It was a perfect overcast day, but luckily to us no single drop of rain hit us until we got back home. It did get chilly, but since I am from Brazil I had an extra coat because I am already freezing at times. Crisis averted!
We can only hope his dad loved it as much as we did.
We also had to stop and get my car checked and inspected, and boy, do I hate this. Luckily our garage/gas station has some pretty nice, hardworking crew, so it was nice to get everything checked out and set until next year. Horray!
Sunday we went bright and early to church and had a chance to talk more with our new pastor. They want to start a new membership group as well as a Bible Study and I really hope it’s at a time we can both attend.
The rest of the day was spent catching up on all the laundry I had from the week, cleaning and dreaming on more renovations.
