This last weekend was pretty darn full and exciting!

Thursday we all got haircuts by our amazing friend Lindsey.
This was Bennett's first haircut in the salon, he stayed pretty still which was a good thing!

Friday night was date night.
With no babysitter, we had to be creative. 
Chris built an awesome fort and grabbed takeout from our favorite Thai place.
He let me pick a movie (Life as We Know It)(not so bad!) and we watched in in the fort.
How awesome is my husband?! 
Also, this was like the first movie ever than I've stayed awake for. 
Amazing I tell ya!

Saturday night we went to our friend's wedding.
It's always fun to see your friends get married!
It's also funny seeing all of your other friends all dressed up.

And this is what I wore:
(I had to dust off some very tall heels, Yes, I said heels.)
(I don't miss them)
(I realize it looks like I have no arms. They are there, just hanging out in my pockets.)

Us with the lovely couple:

Sunday we went up to my sister's house for a mother's day bbq.
We didn't get too many pics.
The sun was so bright, I could barely open my eyes:

I got some lovely flowers and a sweet handmade card.
(does anyone else bawl when they read cards? No? Just me?)

And yesterday we began our house hunt!!!
We saw 8 houses in one day, but technically only 6 because just the mere sight of a few of the houses/neighborhoods made us keep on driving!

We saw some awesome things:
(yes this is our definition of awesome)

...and some not so awesome things:
(this bathroom wasn't horrible but it would be difficult to work with the pink tile and the world's smallest sink. I don't think we could bring ourselves to tear something original out though.)

giant tile doormat? no thanks.

We found one that we can't stop thinking about but our least here isn't up until the end of August.
Know anyone who wants to move downtown for a couple of months?! 
It was a long day and we learned that house hunting is exhausting even though you are mostly sitting in a car.
We also learned that you can't just judge a house by the pictures on the listing, they are VERY deceiving!

    House hunting is definitely interesting. We came across some really creepy places when we were looking for our first house and didn't have much of a budget. One house had garbage everywhere and two little kids home alone in it. That was unexpected and sad. We also came across one with the door wide open and a raccoon literally jumped through the window when we walked in. I think homeless people were living there. I hope you don't come across anything like that!

    Also, your dress for the wedding is super cute.

    Beautiful family! House hunting is so fun, what a great experience that will change your life forever. Good luck!

    I agree with Lauren! I love that one living room with the white fireplace against the wood panelling... the house we're trying to buy has that same panelling around the fireplace and I don't mind it!

    Happy (late) Mothers Day! Its so true that pictures on a listing can be very deceiving! If we would have just went by the picture on the listing of the house we bought we wouldn't have even spent the time to look at it... but I'm glad we did end up looking at it!
