Last night I went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond to get my gift-buying for the April month out of the way. Three printed registries, 25 minutes at the check-out register, and 7 beautifully purple-wrapped gifts later, I am ready to give beautiful gifts to some of the loveliest women I know...and their grooms, of course.
After bridal shopping extravaganza, I headed next door to DressBarn...where not one of the seven dresses I tried on fit. The woes of being tall.
At home the hubby had bought wood to start our (his...? my list of...?) woodworking projects. It's from a nearby area that used to be factories and is being renovated to be the Millwork District. It's old and thick and has tons of character...perfect for a "farmhouse" kitchen table and bench he's planning for. Upon getting home I loaded a rice cake with natural peanut butter for dinner, poured a glass of red wine, and set my mind to getting a few small organization projects completed.
Formal dresses moved to empty closet: check.
Shoes arranged on rack in closet by color and style: check.
Old shoes moved to attic: check.
Spring jackets moved to kitchen closet: check.
2 1/2 loads of laundry: check. (I had to dry the last load overnight...)
Dishwasher loaded and run: check.
Once Upon a Time episode from Sunday: CHECK! (Warning, tangent ahead: This show is seriously so good...thank you brilliant writers for developing an incredible plot based on stories we're all familiar with and making the show scandel-less! Three cheers for good ol' clean television.)
Ahh...So glad that I was able to accomplish so much as I look towards being out of town for work all weekend.
