Freakin' Weekend Alone in the Old House

Happy Monday Night!

Today was national pink day and I totally missed it. My attire instead of being awesome was 3 shades of grey. Drab!

I'm finally feeling a little more rested after last weekend and I had a great non-committed weekend with friends...BUT I'm still sick and that's never fun!

Did you see I surpassed my reading goal and we're only half way through the year...over achiever I am.

I started on my shorts project Sunday after trying to find the red + white striped material and blue with white stars. Of course the last place I checked, Hobby Lobby was the one to have it. Anyway, I can see why they cost so much now, I spent about one full episode of the Sons of Anarchy taking the "little blue strings" out of the shorts!

Yes, I started Sons of Anarchy and one of the reasons this is late is because I watched the entire first season!

So, here are the shorts...

Thanks for ignoring my chubby legs and the string on my shirt :)

This sickness is kicking my behind! I left work early today because I just could not keep my head in the game and it felt like it was going to explode. I don't know why I feel fine in the morning...well, not fine but better in the morning. I'm not one that usually gets sick so I apologize for the wining.

I got my business cards in!! Tried to spray paint the edges and must have been too thick or close at the top as there was enough of a bleed to make me sad.

Another thing I finished this weekend was the wooden bunny for my sister. I had shared a pic on Instagram before Easter when dad cut them out for me and since I'm like Queen Procrastinator I finished painting it the night before my parents left to go see her, lol.

Finally, the other cool thing about this weekend was I finally got to see the movie The Fault in Our Stars and I thought they did such a great job keeping with the book that I loved. The one part I remember being different was a great addition and that parts I really wanted to see weren't so bad to be missed.

Am I the only person that dips their popcorn in butter? I really need to remember that I can't eat an entire bag of popcorn by myself...let alone a LARGE bag. *shakes head*

How was your weekend?!
