Weekend Wrap Up

>> Monday, December 7, 2009

Where did the weekend go?? Gosh! I'm going to give you the highlights.


I have put up the 2009 Christmas decorations (and I have a feeling the 2010 decorations will look oddly familiar...) :) I had to get some stocking hangers (Lowes) and some more ornaments to decorate the mantel this year. It turned out nicely and perhaps I'll share some pictures soon.

Speaking of Christmas decorations - I mentioned that I was going to try my hand making this hat. I realized that I didn't mention that it was going to be our tree topper as opposed to the traditional star or angel or something like that. Well, I tried. And I tried hard to make this hat. I told The Mr. at about 3pm Saturday afternoon that perhaps I should have just bought the hat. He kept saying no, it's fine. You can do it.

Fine. I can do it, but I needed break.

As of today, the hat has been purchased. :) The supplies ended up being more than the hat cost...plus the time and frustration.

I think he caved because he could tell that I wasn't happy with the quality of what I was producing. Could I do it? Yes. Would it be done by Christmas? No.


Clemson. Oh, Clemson. You should have been the ACC Champions but who knows what happened. We lost the game to Georgia Tech but that's okay. CJ Spiller played a helluva game and hopefully he gets a good spot in the NFL. But first, CJ for Heisman.

That's all about that. My blood still runs orange.


I turned 26 yesterday. Everyone keeps telling me that puts me into my "late" 20s. I suppose so, but really I don't feel any different than I did when I turned 24 or 25.

I had a great birthday. Very relaxing and got several things done. The things I didn't get done (like folding the laundry or cleaning the bathrooms) will happen at some point this week...just not today. I enjoyed a day just letting what feels like my responsibilities fly to the wind.

The highlight of the day? The Mr. made me stuffed shells. Stuffed shells are my favorite dinner food. My mom would always make me stuffed shells for my dinners when I was growing up. The Mr. had never had stuffed shells before (and obviously never made it either). He did a great job - two thumbs up!

Followed the stuffed shells up with some ice cream and I was a happy camper.


And last, but not least, I promise I'll clean up this mess of a blog soon.

Anyone want to suggest some color inspirations? I need a jumping point. I was thinking grey and yellow - I love the color combo but I don't feel it being "pulled off" here.

Please leave your suggestions after the tone. :)
