Weekend Recap

My holiday weekend was pretty low-key… it was so nice to have the extra day to look forward to! Why can’t every weekend be a 3-day weekend? Sigh… I really think we’d be a happier, more patient society if we just had a little more time to relax!
Anyway, my weekend included a bridal shower, a trip to the mall, and a trip to Panera. Oh, and watching pretty much *all* of Season 2 of Downton Abbey. I realize I’m ridiculously behind… please! No spoilers!!!

We also scoured a bunch of furniture stores in search of good President’s Day deals. We ordered a sofa for our bonus/game room upstairs! And I forgot to snap a pic of the upholstery/pillow fabric combo. Ooops. Guess you’ll just have to wait until it gets delivered in a month 🙂 Aaaannnd, we found a dining room table that we love! But I think our checkbooks would appreciate it if we wait a month or so to make that purchase.

And lastly, and I know, most-excitingly, I organized my growing washi-tape collection. (I was kidding about the “most-excitingly” part.)

Check back tomorrow for a washi-tape diy to see these puppies in action!

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday friends! I hope you find something today that sends you into the weekend with a smile. I have a 3-day weekend thanks to the President’s Day holiday on Monday, and I couldn’t be more ready for an extra day to decompress. I’ve been extremely busy (and stressed as a result) at work this week, and next week is looking to bring much of the same. So the extra day to just breathe is going to be very much appreciated.

Did everyone have a good Valentine’s Day? We’re not big celebrators here at TPC (is it obnoxious that I abbreviated my own blog?), but Tom did gift me something awesome – a 3-month subscription to UmbaBox! I discovered UmbaBox earlier this week, and immediately became smitten with the concept. I cannot wait to see what I get in my first delivery! Anyone else out there subscribers to UmbaBox, or something similar?

I just want to end this post with a little thank you, for all of your likes, comments and follows. You guys make me smile every day!

autumn isn’t that far off! these colors stood out to me; bold, warm and the perfect palette for my purple & yellow family room / kitchen!

discovered this enormous caterpillar, plus his three BFFs, on my tomato plants this week. Google told me he’s a nuisance to gardens (i.e. eats like there’s no tomorrow), so they were promptly relocated to the woods.
