Welcome back from the 3-day holiday weekend (u.s.a. folks)! Our weather had some impeccable timing and decided to steal the sun and dump the rain. How pleasant!
Afterwards, since I was already out and about, I decided to hit the Labor Day shopping sales early! I found a hobby store that I fell in love with! It's full of crazy miniatures that I can't wait to show off! And I was quickly reminded of how much I HATE SHOPPING FOR CLOTHES. I despise it! :(
And that's probably why I was amazed when I found jeans I like -- skinny jeans, no less! -- at Old Navy. I also scored with a few new pairs of boots, two are rain boots for our new season. :) Hooray!
On Sunday, Greg and I strolled the Evergreen State Fair and I took a bunch of new photos for my photo note cards/scrabble pendants. I can't wait to get those ready! I also finally broke down and did some crafting! I finished my donuts which will become hair pins and rings. And I finally finished my elephant faux-taxidermy brooch :)
I also completed my Crafty Challenge project. Which reminds me, the deadline and call for entries is this Friday! Are you working on yours?!
The long weekend also gave me time to sort through all my clothes/closets. I moved my summer stuff into boxes and pulled out the warm winter clothes. I also went through everything I haven't worn in a while to be donated -- three garbage bags worth! I was holding onto a lot of stuff for when I get back down to my goal weight. But that's silly. So I finally got rid of them. It's kinda sad seeing those size 6 jeans and knowing I just bought some size 12's this weekend! But the positive point is I just moved down from 14...so at least I'm finally going in the right direction! *sigh*
How was your weekend?
P.S. I almost forgot about the mutts! Ui had some weird issue with her eyes on Saturday. She was having a lot of irritation and couldn't stop squinting. We took her to the vet and they gave her antibiotic steroids and sent her home. That seemed to make them worse. She couldn't open them at all after that, poor thing! So my mom took her to the ER vet and they said she was having an allergic reaction to the first medication..no idea why she started squinting in the first place. So they gave her something else and sent her home in a cone! Poor thing felt so ridiculous. But she looked pathetically cute, I couldn't resist a pic. Her eyes seem to be all better now.
