I have literally had NOTHING on the schedule this weekend. Not a single thing. We were invited to two weddings this weekend, but unfortunately I couldn’t make either of them…crutches and a massive cast don’t really go with outdoor weddings. But I’m wishing both couples a lifetime of bliss!!
So, what have I been doing with this free weekend? Catching up on tv, catching up on magazines, cleaning the house, and enjoying this beautiful (although non fall-like) weather. Plus we moved a desk and a piano into the house! Here’s what else I’m up to…
Reading- This tutorial on how to tie a bow-tie. I just feel like that’s something every southern girl should know how to do, and I’m determined to master it!!
Writing- A birthday card to sweet Brody, who turned 3 on Friday. We’ll be heading to his birthday party this afternoon.
Listening- To HGTV. Feeling blessed that we haven’t had to apply for an episode of “Rescue My Renovation”!!
Thinking- That throw pillows are ridiculously expensive!! I love this, this, this and pretty much all of these, but geeeeez!! Those prices! An expensive rug…sure, I can stomach that. Even the occasional absurdly-priced bar cart. But paying an arm and a leg for a pillow? Nope, can’t do it. Am I the only one that thinks this is crazy? Any tips on where to find quality pillows at a better price?
Wishing- My dear friend, Erin, a super duper 26th birthday! I can’t wait to see her next weekend!! :)
Wearing- Jeans and one shoe…my new normal.
Loving- How good fall TV is so far. I’m loving my old favorites: Grey’s, Scandal, Nashville, and Sons of Anarchy. But I’ve also gotten really into a couple of new ones: The Blacklist (amazing!!), Hostages, and Betrayal. I know, I watch way too much TV. I discovered the new ones on demand while I was couch-ridden, and now I’m hooked!
Wanting- To create a bird bath like this. I think it would be a great use of some of the old bricks from our pile!
Needing- To go through all of our mail. It’s really piling up!
Feeling- Grateful for the possibility of a speedy recovery! The original plan after my ankle surgery was to be in a hard cast for 4 weeks, without being able to bear any weight at all. Then 4 more weeks in a walking boot. But at my appointment last Monday, the doc said I was healing well, and that I will only need the hard cast for about 3 weeks. Plus, I can start bearing 50% weight this week, then as much as I can tolerate next week! And NO physical therapy needed!! Yippee!! That appointment was full of great news!
Clicking- This DIY spotted canvas tutorial. I think it could be really cute (and really simple) in a chunky black or gold frame.
Be sure to check out Lauren’s page at http://siddathornton.blogspot.com/, where you can read about what she’s up to, as well as lots of other bloggers. Have a great week everyone!! :)
