Memorial Day weekend recap

Remmy

Holy hell, Batman. This weekend was awesome. In spite of the fact that I ate and drank so much it made me sick on Tuesday (call the waaaahmbulance!), this weekend seriously kicked ass.

Thursday night we had one of my college roommates over. We grilled and it was delicious.

Friday night my bestie and her man came over. We made homemade pizza and Dana brought over Velatis caramels. And it was delicious.

Saturday I did two more sections of rocks in our driveway while the hubby mowed. Then we installed shutters. Then we drove all over Columbia to get lunch at chipotle. Then we painted his mom’s molding in her living room and helped her set it back up. Then I planted 6 tomato plants! In a dress. Without getting dirty. WOO! Then we had friends over for yard games. Busy day, huh?

Sunday! Sunday started with friends and food (big surprise, right?). Our friends Ben and Phil came over super early to watch a Formula 1 race with my man, then we all piled into the car (plus Dana) and headed to a local farmer’s market! I scored a loaf of Italian bread, cherry tomatoes and some peas. And it was all delicious.

Sunday afternoon we baked. Well, Emily baked and my baking failed. But that’s ok. Then we went to a Memorial Day cookout at our friends’ house in Silver Spring. I pretty much hung out with baby Declan the entire time. Holy cuteness.

DeclanYup… look at those eyes.

Like I said, totally awesome weekend. We finished our fabulous weekend with a picnic at my dad’s house. I don’t remember the last time I got to see so many friends and family members a span of five days — it was incredible.

I hope you all had a great weekend. Enjoy your weeks & happy hump day (do people still say that?!)

Spring break!

Work has been really busy lately and there’s just been no time for crafting of any sort. Thankfully, I get a break starting tomorrow — spring break, in fact! One of the best perks of working at a university is that we get a spring break just like the students. We usually get two days off, but this year we have Monday through Wednesday off work! Wahooooo! I am also taking Thursday AND Friday off 🙂

I can’t wait to get started on a few projects that I’ve been dying to get my hands on.

My goals for spring break:

  • Paint the cabinets in our laundry room & replace the countertop
  • Create a side table for my craft room to replace an old dresser that is falling apart
  • Possibly hang new doors in our office closet
  • Buy new front and car port doors — also paint our current doors a test color to see if I like it for our new front door
  • Finish a sewing stool project I started in January
  • Build an ottoman for our living room (this probably won’t happen because I am super picky about fabric and can’t decide what I want)
  • Fix jewelry for people… I realllly need to get to this.
  • Take a bunch of crapola to the dump

Totally doable list with a whole week off work, right?

OK, it does seem a bit ambitious. If I get half of it done, I’ll be super pleased.

Hope your weeks are going well! Happy Friday & happy weekend!!
