Justyn and I both finished a couple of little projects over the weekend. His project might be a little more impressive than mine… but whatever the case, we were able to keep ourselves busy!
Project #1 – Sun Shades for the Back Patio
With football season and the nicer weather that’s just around the corner, we decided it’s time to get our patio in shape to actually be used! Our backyard faces the southeast, so we get a lot of morning sun shining on the patio and through the windows into our living room. Besides the heat that comes from the sunshine, we also get terrible glare on our TV screen. This is no good for football watching!
So, Justyn found a couple of sun shades from Lowe’s. We (yes, I helped) had to cut them down to size so they would fit the space perfectly. Once Justyn figured out how to do that, it was all pretty simple to put together!
Here are a few pictures of the installation and finished product:
Project #2 – Labor & Delivery Nurse Gifts
I saw this idea on Pinterest (of course) and decided it was something that I definitely wanted to do. Whenever I get the opportunity, I love to give out gifts! And anyone who has ever spent time in the hospital knows how amazing the nurses can be. Honestly, I have so much appreciation for them mostly because it’s something I don’t think I could ever do. Taking care of patients day in – day out, the long shifts on their feet, working nights, and I’m sure they get their fair share of difficult people to deal with. So, I really like this idea to show our appreciation to the nursing staff that will help out when Baby Kearney decides to arrive!
