I don’t know what got into me this weekend but I feel very accomplished. I know the cooler weather gets me excited. It was perfect aside from the rain, but even that didn’t dampen the night since I got to relax and read while listening to the rain.
Friday: I put together a to-do list so I could stay on track this weekend and get stuff done. It helps when it’s colorful right?! If you remember from my Birthday Wish List I wanted these anchor bookends, well I bought them and then got to work making them more my taste. A textured black spray paint make these so much better.
Saturday: Seamus decided it would be fun to wake me up really early (5:36am) to go the bathroom and then immediately go back to sleep. I have a very hard time going back to sleep so coffee it was instead. I decided to use this day as my running around day so I went shopping first at the Christmas Tree Shop for a Keurig stand, then to Wal-Mart for odds and ends then I went hiking. It was predicted that rain was coming so I wanted to get it done early.
After the hike I went to PetSmart for dog food and they were having an adoption drive, let me tell you it was so hard to resist getting another dog. Then I went to A.C. Moore for a picture frame for my Happiness sign I got last week. Back home I did most of my chores including grocery shopping before the rain came pouring down. The rest of the night I read and finished The Killing on NetFlix.
Sunday: The morning is as always spent reading. I look up to see Seamus sticking out his tongue. Seriously can he get any cuter?!
After putting all my laundry away, it was time for the MAJOR project. Really I just wanted to move the furniture since my new bedspread is supposed to come on Monday and to make a custom bench for the end of the bed. After moving the bed, it turned into me wanting to change EVERYTHING!!
The bed and nightstand doesn’t really fit with the headboard I currently have so that led to deciding I need new ones. Then I wanted to change up my bureau pieces currently everything is what was already on it.

I realized I have some shopping to do and projects to complete before it’s done so stay tuned. The rest of the night was spent baking this Blackberry Pear pie, some goat cheese meatballs with spaghetti squash for dinner while watching movies.
Overall I felt really accomplished and feel like the coming weekends will be just as productive. I know it seems like I was go, go, go but I did have a little bit of relaxing time too, promise.
How was your weekend?
