It was a busy weekend my bloggy friends. I had an interview, dear friends got married, and we went to a grill-out with Math Man's family to celebrate our engagement and one of his grandmother's birthdays and a second grill-out with friends. Oh plus, I attempted to house clean and organize the condo. And re-arranged our bedroom. And did a small mountain of laundry. Math Man and I oh-so-briefly discussed wedding plans. Went to the gym. Spent quite a bit of time with Mr. Mason. And I spent lots of time running errands--dropped off things at GoodWill, the consignment shop, the alterations shop, the dry cleaners, and the grocery store--TWICE, because you know, I'm a good planner like that. You know all those exciting tasks that I'm discovering go along with being a grown-up.
I also spent some time at TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and Homegoods. Remember this post where I was imagining that we could use our two little white bookshelves on either side of our bed as bedside tables? I moved them there and then measured them in hopes of finding baskets to put in them. Well, you can imagine my surprise when I discovered that these cute solid white shelves are not at all the same size---in fact, not one of the shelves are the same height. One book shelf is 10 inches deep, the other is 8.5 inches deep. One is one width, the other another width. I didn't let that deter me though. I took measurements and headed off to Homegoods where I spent quite a bit of time in the basket aisle with my "purse-ruler" (as I called the tapemeasure when Math Man called me to see what I was doing). No luck, but I haven't given up yet.
How about you? Any homeifying progress this weekend? (If not, don't feel bad, bloggy friends. Trust me when I tell you that you're probably starting out WAY ahead of where I am starting. Plus, perhaps you spent your weekend in a more fun way. Like laying out by the pool enjoying this awesome weather!)
Of course, homeifying our condo actually makes me quite happy---it means I'm that much closer to moving in full time with Math Man! And having celebratatory grill-outs makes me feel so very loved. I'm a lucky girl.
