Musings of a Museum Fanatic: Weekend Update

Weekend Update

Another productive weekend in the Glenn household!  Friday started off with me running errands on my own.  I went to Michaels and got the supplies to work on another Pinterest DIY project this month.  I've decided to work on #23 in my 101 list.  Although looking at it again right now I said every other month ... well looks like I'll be an over achiever on that one!  Photos and link to come after I've actually finished the project.  I also got a nice storage bench thing from Bed, Bath & Beyond but upon opening it yesterday found parts were missing and wood was scratched.  Very annoyed about having to return it ... that sucker was heavy and I got it from store up to our 2nd floor condo by myself.  Those are the flowers Kevin surprised me with for our 6 month anniversary ... forgot the photo of them last week.



Saturday I was supposed to work a Pampered Chef table at a holiday bazaar for a local museum, was going to be a fundraiser show.  Had a mis-communication with the contact person and didn't get the right paperwork in but it looks like I'll be able to do a show for the museum at a later date and my contact (a person I know from a previous job) will host a personal show with me!  So I was planning on helping Kevin and his dad paint our kitchen but it's so small three is a crowd.  My mother in law and I went shopping instead!  Here are the photos of the couch I promised by the way!  Empty space then awesome new couches!!!
Sunday was a lot of fun for me.  It was Founders Day for my sorority, Gamma Phi Beta, so I went to the luncheon.  My new alumnae group, the northwest burbs group, was hosting it in downtown Arlington Heights so I had a nice 10 minute drive yesssss!  Delicious Italian food and lovely sisterhood.  Then it was Bears and being more productive for me!  I sent a bunch of emails and started on another number!  Got started on #42 ... digitize all my hard copy photos.  Finished an entire roll!  Realized that the process is going to take a while too.  I started with the images from my London & Paris trip after my senior year of high school.  Definitely will dedicate an entire post to that later this week when I get more photos digitized.  

OH I almost forgot, I'm sure everyone really wants to know this one but get home and change out of my dress yesterday and I have this lovely bruise right below my knee.  You'd think with something that colorful I'd remember hitting something really hard but I have absolutely no idea how I got it.  The photo doesn't even do it justice, it's very purple today, it's pretty awesome.

    Sorry about missing the Pampered Chef table... I'm kinda in love with PC. My mamma spoiled me early. ;)

  3. OH MY GOSH I do that all the time with bruises! That's a big one though! Usually when I bang something I'll tell my hubby about it and say if I have a bruise a few days later remember why. ;)
