Le Weekend

My weekend was fantastic, the perfect mix of relaxing and activities.  Between going out for dinner and drinks with some friends, hitting the bar to watch the playoffs (ahem, the boyfriend was watching the playoffs), and going to class, I managed to get in some good laying time on the couch and worked on a couple of projects around the house.

A couple of shelves on our bookshelves are now considered done:



Others still require a bit more work:


I hung my fabulous new print from Parima Creative Studio:


And I set up what the boyfriend is calling "our love shrine" (I'm still planning on painting the table different shades of mint):


The print came from a giveaway from Rachel at Life Unsweetened:


So all in all, a fairly successful weekend.  I hope you had a good one too!

  11. It's a surprising amount of work to get a whole place decorated, but also tons of fun.
