The big thing B and I accomplished this week was finally settling on, and purchasing a couch! We looks at all kinds of couches, furniture shopping is quite the process. Unfortunately you all will have to wait the 3 weeks until it is set up for pictures. Currently it's sitting in the garage...covered in plastic. Managing to get it home, in one piece, in the rain, was quite the...adventure.
Easter was really nice this year. B's parents are in Aruba (jealous!!) celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary, which meant for the first time in a long time we didn't have to celebrate a holiday in 2 places. Fortunately our families live relatively close, but driving back and forth for 2 thanksgiving dinners...2 christmas celebrations, etc. gets difficult. Easter was nice and relaxing, just my immediate family (minus my sister who is tackling finals at college). My mom cooked a lovely meal as always...and I swear my dad (always the photographer) was actually there...despite what the picture indicates :)
And clearly, since I'm the master at procrastinating (aka...doing anything other than packing) here's a quick tutorial on the small project I've been working on.
I started with a trip to the dollar store. I bought 2 sets of votive holders and 4 candle sticks:
Now it's off to shower, finish some grad work, and then perhaps pack a box or two. Let's be real...I'm off to shower, finish some grad work, and then go to sleep. Packing will be put off for yet another day!
If anyone finds that magical packing fairy, sent her my way!
