(Also - I'm real classy...my favorite wine has a screw off cap, ha. And for the record, that is Clean Slate brand Riesling, available at Liquor Barn and wherever fine wines are sold. Approximately $10 a bottle. You're welcome.)
2 - Sooo my friend Sarah came over on Friday night and the two of us went to Hobby Lobby followed by some crafting. We were both kinda like..."does this make us losers?" But I have to tell you, even if we are losers, it was so much fun! We went to HobLob, grabbed some coffee on the way home, then settled in at my kitchen table. If she's up for it, I'm thinking a monthly craft night?! She wanted to make a burlap wreath, while my task was to doctor up a wreath I made a couple years ago.
Gwen did and work on the one I already had! I added some more leaves, a dark red hydrangea, some other flowers, and a ribbon/bow. (I suck at making bows - I need to practice a lot!) Here's what I have now:
While at Hobby Lobby, Sarah and I determined we should be professional wreath makers. There were several wreaths selling for upwards of $79! HOLY CRAP! She looked at one and said "I think I must be reading this wrong. Will you tell me what that says?" I looked at it and said "Evidently I'm wrong too but I'd bet money that says $99.99!" People, it looked like it belonged in a cemetery, but it was for someone's front door. I'm sorry...
Oh here is Sarah's wreath, after she took it home to do a little more work on it. She isn't quite finished...
3 - Sarah and I also opened our Birchboxes together. We were both pretty under-whelmed, though she did get the blue nail polish. Hooker. Here's what was in my BBox...boo.
4 - So last night we went over to my friend Deborah's new house. She and her husband got married and moved into their new house in June, so they had a little get-together. I wrapped up a bottle of wine in some dishtowels, a la Pinterest, but I didn't snap a picture of it before I gave it to her, darn! It was cute though, and an inexpensive gift. I also snagged two great recipes while there! I'll share them later (I gotta keep some material in my pocket, people!)
Anyway, here's a pic of us...(and sorry, many pix here might also be visible in my Instagram feed to the right!)
Both wearing our Stella & Dot necklaces! ;) She is having another Stella party in October so of course I'm pumped! I didn't manage to get a picture of me and TJ....in fact this is the only picture I took the whole night...snapped with my phone, which I'd earlier dropped into the kitchen sink, with water running...only me.
Alright, that's enough for now! Hope you have had a great weekend and get the week off to a good start!
