New Surroundings...

So this weekend the weather turned out to be better than expected. Well at least Sunday did. We didn't get any snow, just rain and cold. John and I were desperate to get out of the house though. We went out to Kansas near the race trace and shopped for a new washer and dryer. Found the one we want the price isn't too bad. Once that tax refund comes back it's mine! I also got something else that I'm just wild about this weekend. Shouldn't have bought them but they were on sale AND it as the only pair in my size. I've been searching high and low for the right neutral heel for a bit. Couldn't decide on a color or shape. This one just grabbed me and I had to have it. We actually saw it Saturday but I had to go back Sunday and pick them up. I was praying the entire drive BACK to Kansas they hadn't gone home with someone else. 40% off is a pretty good deal.

We also did some furniture moving this weekend. I was very excited (probably a little to excited from the look on John's face when he saw what I pulled him away from his video game to see) because I got all my make up, perfumes and jewelry organized and displayed on our dresser top. I've been wanting to do this for a while but couldn't work out what I wanted to do. I finally just did it. I think it turned out great. It makes me smile every time I see it now. I think I purposefully came up with reasons to visit the bedroom more after doing this just so I could look at it. Sad but true. Also, got a new little sewing nook set up. It's still very meek but once I get some art up and some mini shelving it will be perfect. It's in a little corner of our living room. Nice because I can still watch movies while sewing or listen to my Ipod speakers from there as well. It's so cute in fact that I felt compelled to sew something. I didn't have the guts to start pants like I thought but I did make some cute decorative pillows for the bed. They are super cute and I'm pretty happy with them.





So this week hopefully will be warm and happier than last. I'm dying to get out and go for a walk. We sat in the yard for a while with the dogs yesterday just soaking up the sun. All the neighbors were out too. It was just such a nice day. I'm hoping we are done with cold weather. I can handle rainy stuff but no more snow scares. No more 30s. I'm so over it. I'm also, thinking about doing this...




Just look at that cute hair!
