i had a frickin' fabulous weekend. seriously. oh. my. god.
I dont remember what we did Friday night but lately it's been just staying in and going to bed by like 10:30, which ended up being really great because it got me outta bed by 9 on Saturday.
Late for some, I'm sure, but we typically dont roll outta bed on the weekends until 11 or so. Needless to say, I was the only one up for the first 2 hours and I was able to clean undisturbed. I was on a roll and by the time my men woke up, my bro stays with us on the weekends, i had already accomplished so much! I really needed that because the past two weekends had us so busy I hadnt gotten around to cleaning.
I have a confession: in the past...I'd maybe clean every quarter...gross I know right? But since I've pledged to fabulousity...it means a clean home! i had been sticking to my guns for about 3 weeks and then the last two had just been so busy with engagements that i had let it slip and it's amazing how it really affected my mood!!
In my attempt to cut the bills, I've been attempting to recycle. By that I mean, antique/thrift etc. Well, that and I envision owning this beautiful French Provincial claw footed dresser for my bedroom makeover. I didn't get far on Saturday, although I did find this cute little bench which I may have to go back for. A Home Goods recently opened by us so I went there for the first time, and oh. my. god. what fabulous prices!? seriously... i couldnt believe it!!! i'll definitely be checking in there on a weekly basis from now on. I bought these cute little lanterns for my newly planted flower bed. I cant wait to show you guys pictures!! Those will probably be coming this weekend since we still had/have some frost at night.
I also bought all the pavers for the edging of my flower bed. Heavy...lemme tell you..but I'm so proud. Nate has made me do most of the work since this is 'my' project but I am so proud of it. I've put a lot of work and thought into how I wanted this to look and I can't wait for the flowers to be in the ground!!
for the evening we had tried to get some couples over, but it ended up being a guys night in. Rock Band...wooohooo...I holed up in my craft room...fiddling around with my sewing machine, which ive had forever but have no clue how to use. It was chill. I needed that since all the shopping wore me out...not only that but Sunday was going to be another early one...
