hello Monday

I am grateful to have today off.  Thank you, Mr. Presidents!  I'll be spending the day at home; I hope to have some time to craft a bit.  It's been too long since I've shared a DIY around here.  It's also the start of February vacation in our part of the world ((a week-long break for K-12)).  It makes me slightly jealous, but then I remember they're in school until mid-June...glad those days are behind me!

This week, I am saying hello to...
...new ((to me)) boots
...a couple's dinner with some church friends
...finishing season 1 of Downton Abbey and starting season 2
...clearance priced book shelves now containing my husband's books library
...a handwritten letter to Grandma
...making these outfit inspirations ((here and here)) out of my closet
...our soon-to-be pretty 2nd floor bathroom ((we hit some serious deals over the weekend))
...3.5 day work week

Can you tell we've been a little more focused on the house than usual?  I think it's a combination of the unseasonably warm winter and realizing we've been in our home for almost a year.  We spent so much time on the house over the weekend, but it feels good.

What did you do this weekend?

  3. I'm proud of you for all the work you have done on your house! By the time the weekend rolls around I am so exhausted from the work week that I never endup doing any of the house projects that I wanted to. So good for you! And yah, I have been hearing abotu downtown abbey EVERYWHERE but still haven't jumped on the wagon. I guess it's time, huh?
