Friday night, our church hosted a ladies painting night which was so much fun! Since we just moved to this area and I work an hour away, it's been hard meeting new people so this was a fantastic way to meet ladies who go to our church and live around the area. We all had a great time painting Mermaids.
Totally forgot to get a picture of the finished painting at the event
Saturday, I mowed the grass for the first time ever! I mean, I've hustled on the Hustler but this was the first time using a push mower and actually doing the full yard. It wasn't horrible, but I won't be begging to do it every week ;) I will need to get some better socks though; I don't think the pink tube socks will cut it every week...
After mowing, I ran over to the mall to get a few things and check out Old Navy's sale. I found this striped dress for $15 and couldn't pass it up. I think it's flattering and is the perfect transition piece for fall. Can't wait to pair it with a jean jacket and booties.
I was also looking for some placemats and napkins to spruce up our table for my family's visit this weekend. I found some adorable placemats and matching napkins from Homegoods (can't find a link) and I can't wait to break them in this weekend!
I'll add the plates to the other place settings this weekend
Thankfully, I was able to get Stephen on board with planting some fall flowers for the front porch. I decided on one pot of yellow mums and one pot of orange mums. I can't wait for the buds to bloom and hopefully I won't kill them. We decided to only get one planter to make sure I don't kill the flowers, but I'd like to get another one for the other side of our front door. I'll definitely have to keep adding to my "fall" front porch when everything goes on sale.
Stephen actually found this planter - we thought it was neat and is perfect for fall (and was also $15!)
After church and the grocery store on Sunday, we worked on some things around the house which also consisted of me finally filling some picture frames and hanging pictures in my office. Having pictures finally hung in the office makes a huge difference!
I got 1 picture frame filled in our living room... I wanted 2 more but the way they had to be cropped wouldn't work
Obsessed with my sister's paintings!
*Please ignore the messy room and the awful lighting. It's been raining since Saturday afternoon.
Threw this plaque up in our closet - we actually met over a pair of shoes ;)
I was also able to squeeze in making a garland tassel project for the first time as well. I'm really happy with how it turned out! Come back tomorrow for a tutorial!
Hope everyone had a great weekend! PS that "hurricane" dissipated and ended up on the west coast of Florida - nothing exciting happening over here except some rain.
Linking up with Biana.
