Weekend Update

You guys. You guys! YOU GUYS! YOU GUYYYYYYSSSSS! THE BLUES WON! WE BEAT THE BLACKHAWKS LAST NIGHT IN GAME 7 OF THE FIRST ROUND OF THE PLAYOFFS!

I’ve written about the Blues a lot here on LivingwithaBoy.com, most notably on Being a Blues Fan 101, but I tell you what…nothing feels as good as beating the defending Stanley Cup Champions in Game 7 during NHL playoffs.

We had friends over on Thursday night to watch Game 5, where we thought we’d clinch, and I made everyone in attendance (including Gracie) wear a variety of my Blues apparel. Welcome to the Deitsch household!

I’ll try to stop talking about hockey now but it’s the playoffs so y’all might just have to put up with me until (hopefully) June!

Other happenings around these parts? We got our Derby outfits! We’re going with my parents and our friends Martha and Mark and I’m so, so excited to experience our first Derby. I’m especially thrilled that my dress has pockets! #priorities

Wait ’til you see the hat I DIYed. That deserves its own post. 😉

I just hope our weather on Derby day is similar to what we’ve been experiencing. It’s been so nice here! We went to Beckley Creek Park over the weekend with the doggies and went on a nice couple-mile hike. They were in heaven!

Oh yeah and, GO BLUUUUUUES!

What a Weekend

I was super pumped for this weekend to arrive because all week long, Kevin had been in Kansas City for work. I don’t know how military spouses do it because I really hate when my husband travels and he travels very rarely.

His flight arrived Friday night and I picked him up from the airport with Gracie in tow. We rushed home to catch the end of the Blues game and just like that, the moment I was looking forward to all week had arrived. <3

He had Saturday off so we spent it getting a lot done around the house. We started with coffee/tea on the deck and set up a game plan. Kevin tackled cutting the grass and trimming while I pulled weeds and put down new mulch. A few hour later, our front yard was lookin’ real good.

We had Danny and Sara over for grilling out and a bonfire.

Bonfire season has arrived and I couldn’t be more excited!

Gracie was especially into it. 😉

A bonfire isn’t complete without s’mores.

Kev was at work today but I was able to get a lot done around the house. I tackled laundry, reorganizing the pantry, finishing the bathroom light replacement project (more to come on that) aaaand vacuuming. Sunday night has arrived and its time to get ready for the next week. At least this week I’ll have my hubby home with me!
