Weekend Update! Sell it all!

(eeek! just realized this didn't publish on Monday for whatever reason.... whoops! here is a LATE weekend update...on a Wednesday!)

Happy Monday and MLK day! We had a SUPER lowkey weekend-- and it's still happening since there is no school today!

I cleaned out Andy's closet last week and had a LOT of stuff that no longer fit-- but it was really nice stuff that I couldn't bring myself to just give to goodwill.  So I sold it all....! More on that below. 

First, in honor or MLK, this was Andy at pickup on Friday:
 Just chilling with a crown on. 

Then he got closer and I could read it:
Dr. King had a dream. My dream be nis to evrebody. 

That might be a keeper. 

Also a keeper....

CalBoy got to be Eagle of the Week! Whoop Whoop! I am super proud of him! (of course he got in the car and I was all excited- Andy goes "big deal, I already got that like months ago..." I had to remind Andy about the hat he JUST made..... be nis to evrebody.)

We did nothing Friday night.  Nada. Eddie picked up suski takeout and I think everyone was asleep super early.  I started a new book (holla! WILD Friday night!!!) and was asleep by 11!

Saturday morning, I went to popup and I am so glad I did! It was a great class and a lot of fun.  I was smiling the whole time I was getting my booty kicked.

This is Gina- another one of the popup instructors.... we wore the same shirt.  Amazing how different it can look- on her short torso vs my long torso- hahaha

Cal had a basketball game next, where my momma bear might have come out a little bit....

And then Andy had his first practice and he was BEYOND excited! Eddie and Cal went to the Carolina game,

 so I took nug to practice.  He was in HEAVEN.  He has been counting down for this season to start-- sick of watching Cal play, he was ready to play!

So, the sale I mentioned above... I was going to wait and do it on Sunday, but I got a few messages from people wanting it to be Saturday night.  

I prepped for this- and wanted to do it right.  So I divided everything up into categories (polo shirts, jeans, khaki pants, shorts, long sleeved button down, etc etc) and then made a cover page for each group:

and then I took a picture of each item and listed it under the cover pic with the brand, size and cost. I had a LOT of items.... holy cow, this isn't even a quarter of what I had.....

 So I started on Saturday night and people were buying things faster than  I could post them! It was so much fun! I created a facebook page to post all of this so I wasn't blowing up everyone's feeds.  It worked out really well and I hope to do something like this again! Several people who read this were in the group, so hopefully y'all got some good stuff!

I still have bags and bags to go to goodwill, but it is a start!

The boys begged and begged to sleep together (in a twin bed!) Saturday night.  Andy is back to being a horrible horrible sleeper, so we were hoping this would help (spoiler alert: it didn't).  How cute were they together though??

 Checked on them one more time before I hit the hay.... out cold. 
Until Andy came into our room, wide awake, wanting to talk about stuff.  And whine.  And cry.  And whimper.  Let me tell you-- Bruce was flat exhausted on Sunday...he can't handle the up all night business. 

Sunday was a great day-- it was soooo pretty outside! Andy went to a friend's house in the neighborhood and was gone the entire day.  Cal played with his buddy and had so much fun the whole day too.  Eddie went to a gun range with a friend and I settled up all of the sales from the night before and then did a bunch of house cleaning. 

I cleaned out a TON on Sunday and then the day ended with Cal's first sleepover! whoot!  There was a ton of debate over where to sleep-- our house or theirs, but in the end, Hunter wanted to stay here, so we hosted a sleepover!

 They slept in the guest bed and I was a little worried Cal was too excited to go to sleep- the kid couldn't stop grinning.  It was adorable. 

They did finally fall asleep- around 9:30 and slept until 7:15!

Where was Andy?! He was having a bit of a hard time with Cal having a friend over.  I half-jokingly texted my mom and asked if she wanted an Andy date, and she said she would LOVE one! My dad was out of town so she and Andy had a special night together and Andy slept in her bed (through the night!) and woke up asking for breakfast in bed (!!!).  Who does he think he is?!?! Well, whoever he thinks he is, it worked....

A nice little low key weekend.... with Monday off too so a quick week!
