Before & After: A (sort of) productive weekend
I've successfully completed my first weekend as a 40+-hour-a-week employee, and I'm happy to say it was fun and refreshing, and I'm looking forward to getting back into things at work today. Friday night I went to some friends' new house and had sort of a girls' night while our husbands and boyfriends talked, then Saturday I did some things around the house before I met my friend for shopping, dinner, then karaoke with more friends. Sunday I saw a townhouse and looked for other rentals nearer to work... we are moving again. Then I got some sewing and projects done, then hot-tubbed at my parents' house.
I also cut out and finished a cute work-ey dress with some fabric I got at JoAnn's on Saturday for 50% off the clearance price. Sweet. I also did a quick project on a stool I bought at Goodwill Outlet recently--we needed a more piano bench-height piano bench, and this one was funky and vintage but not covered well. Turned out to be stapled with an old flannel pillowcase.
I knew I wanted it white, and then I had some awesome bright yellow chenille, also vintage, that I used some of for the cover:
I will wear the cute navy work dress that I started soon, and am building my work wardrobe from the after-Christmas season sales as well. I got three cute pairs of shoes at the mall Saturday at great prices!! I love having great shoes.
How was your weekend?
