Happy Monday...

Nope, no recipe... I'm not very good at this blogging thing, oh well. This weekend was fun. Friday, I ended my work day a little early in the afternoon and Sean and I got ourselves some Costco cards and stocked up on meat for the garage freezer, and some other random non-perishable necessities. We have a new Costco coming in just down the way from us soon, and we are excited! We do really well with our finances, but are trying to find that sweet spot of savings vs spending, so we're giving ourselves a more watchful eye on our spending habits.

Saturday Sean worked but I enjoyed a rainy morning, gave the dogs a bath when there was a break in the rain, and then pretty much spent the rest of the day fixing the curtains in my office. We have curtains up in front of what used to be a closet before the previous owners converted the 3rd bedroom into an office/library type room. I brought out my sewing machine back in Sept and made curtains, but they needed to be widened a bit, so I spent hours with my seam ripper (I hope I never have to rip another seam again), and added panels on both sides of each curtain. I must say I'm pretty happy with my handiwork, and am happy that you can no longer see our stuff peaking behind the curtain! I went to our friends Beth and Brian's house for dinner and some good conversation and stayed up late finishing curtain #1.

Yesterday (Sunday), there was a break in the rain which was nice since Sean and I went to church, then got him a new computer. I spent the afternoon finishing curtain #2 and then we went to our friend's engagement party. Always fun to get dressed up, spend some time with friends, and laugh a lot. No I didn't take any pictures, I suck.

Next on my round of craftiness/home improvement - painting the kitchen/dining room (I WILL take before and after pictures), sewing the dogs a new dog bed for the living room, making a cushion for the wall between our living and dining room for some extra seating when guests come over, and making some accent pillows. I'm feeling crafty in 2012!!
