Free time is few and far between around here. Between house projects, visitors and traveling, there’s barely any downtime. This weekend, we decided not to make any plans and use our time to clean the house and catch up on some projects – stay tuned for some fun pictures. Inspired by Jess’ “crumbs,” I decided that since people DO read this blog, I wanted to devote every Sunday morning that I could to catch you up on my current thoughts. I think it will give me some time to relax, drink a cup of coffee, collect my thoughts and review some of my recent pinterest posts. So here we go!
——> we just had french toast from the left over french bread i bought for topping on mac and cheese. AND bacon. too bad we didn’t have any bubbly for mimosas…
——> … and now i have a lap full of dogs and blanket
——> the hubby surprised me with a kreg jig – something we’ve been thinking about for awhile – so now we can get to work on this rustic x console table
——> do your dogs sleep in the bed with you? this is a typical night for us… decorating the bedroom is on my to-do list, i swear
——> this is how i want to paint the rustic console table when we finish it
——> painting our awful ikea malm dressers is on my to-do list too. i want to do something like this zinc oxide painted furniture. i’ve heard that oil-based primer is the key. hopefully my second try at painting laminate turns out much better than my first…
——> i’m going to sew some of these fun pillow covers today. i promised katie i’d make her a big mustard yellow pillow cover a long time ago so it’s probably about time i actually did it…
——> have you heard of maybooks? they had an awesome groupon so i ordered an academic planner for my sister and a lined notebook for all my furniture ideas. they are eco-friendly too!
——> if you are looking for an inexpensive dog toy and need an excuse to go to ikea, grab some of these guys. they are riley’s all-time favorite. she has two big ones and a slew of little ones that she likes to carry around in her mouth two at a time :)
——> is it weird that i don’t care for fresh-sliced, out-of-the-garden tomatoes but i love the viney smell they leave on my hands after picking them? i think we’ll make fresh tomato and mozzarella pizzas using my homemade pizza crust recipe tonight
——> hopefully i’ll have a fully functioning office by next weekend and that means i’ll have the space to start creating a sewing space for this new machine!!
——> i think fall is my favorite time of the year. hokie football is only a handful of days away. all i want to do to make wreaths like this one or this one and this one…
——> i had a “terrific lady day” yesterday. if you haven’t heard of that, ask your significant other. hopefully they watch The League.
hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
