It was a busy, busy weekend. After lots of debate over what to do with my Friday night....I realized that I was too stressed to do much of anything that I had actually planned on doing. Add to that the fact that there was a Cardinals baseball game that night...and a building had just exploded downtown I knew that my attempt to commute home after work could take multiple hours....so Andrew came out to the county instead and we had a "date". It felt good to go out with each other after weeks of running around being busy. We went to see Star Wars and it was pretty good. Much better than 1 and 2. I had low expectations but was pleasantly surprised.
Saturday we did some stuff around the house, attended a birthday party for our friend Makanaaloha's ninth revolution around the sun, and then headed to the apartment to clean. Our lease there ends Thursday so we have to clean up and hopefully get some of our deposit money back. Cleaning was awful! It took a good 3 hours...and it was so hot in there...yuck. Needless to say I passed out Saturday night around 9.
Sunday was more house stuff. I did manage to put the third and final coat of joint compound on my fireplace mantle. It looks great if I do say so myself!! I'll take another picture after it's all primed and painted. Then we had tickets to a baseball game in crazy, crazy heat!! Ugh... it's gonna be a hot one in Missouri this summer...
On the way home we got a call from our friend Aileen that her sweet little old dog Taylor was LOST. We went home, made some signs and hung them in the neighborhood. Afterward we all went to the neighborhood bar to eat some food and thank goodness Aileen got a call that someone had found him!!! =) Thank goodness!!!
Andrew and I also managed to stop at one of my favorite antique malls this weekend. We FOUND this awesome old dresser which is now the happy home for towels to wipe off Kula's wet feet, napkins, kitchen towels and a much needed junk drawer. Check out the sweet patina.
I also found this awesome fabric! From left to right you see apple green velvet, dark green mohair, and shiny green cotton chintz.
Here are some pictures of how my new "art" room is coming along.
