Monday is here and I am not going to be sad about it. The weekend was crazy and as much as I would have loved to just sit on the couch all weekend, snuggled in blankets and books I really wanted to check in with my Dad who has been having some health issues. I also dropped off a book I got him last weekend at the used book store. Overall it was a good weekend.
Since I was in the same town I popped over to my brother’s house to see the nieces. It is always tough when I have Seamus but he was good for the most part. He is not good with sudden movements and with kids that is a given.
Friday was a relaxing night in with a little Sparkletini I picked up at the new World Market while reading.
I started the Coincidence of Coconut Cake, it is promoted as a cross between You’ve Got Mail meets How to Eat a Cupcake, and I would agree.
Saturday was also a good mail day. I got my package in from Ulta and NYX was buy 2 get one Free so I made good use of the discount.
After getting home from my brothers I dropped off Seamus and went grocery shopping and by then it was 8pm so it was a quiet night with some DVR shows and crackling candles.
Sunday was busy and I wanted to finally make this Rustic Bacon Apple Chicken that I saw on Chelsea’s post a week ago. It was delish and it really inspired me to start creating some of my own recipes again.
I thought I wouldn’t have time for a big project so I decided to do some smaller ones I wanted to do, yeah it still took a lot of time but totally worth since I love both of them. I can’t decide if I want to put little baby’s breath wreaths on the stars or stencil on FALL or just leave as they are now. This will find a more permanent home soon, once I finish another project. Ha! I used the Early American wood stain by MinWax.
This project is only half done. After attaching all the board together I stained it with Rust-Oleum in Carrington. I already had the anchor stencil from a project I did last year and I used a sample paint in off-white, to stamp it on. I plan to add the words “Find What Anchors You…” to it mostly likely next weekend.

What where you up to this weekend?
