I was looking back at my last WITL post and I put day 6 when really it was day 5. I need to stop doing things before my coffee in the morning!!! I probably mislabeled all my days haha. Geez Louise! My day 6 and 7 were uneventful.
I didn't even take pictures!
Wednesday: Got up early again, hung out with Zoe and then headed off to work. Now on Tuesday I got those awesome plates to make platters with, well on Wednesday I ran back to the thrift store and got the rest. I haggled the guy (yeah not really) and got the big plates down from $1.49 to a buck. There were three left so I saved like $1.50. Not bad. I then got green glass candle holders. It looks so pretty the green with the fine china plates! When I got home I just got lazy and sat around my apartment for the rest of the night.
Thursday: I work nights on Thursdays, so I spend my days doing laundry and cleaning. But I didn't really feel like doing that yesterday. So I asked my friend if she wanted to go to ikea with us. We were leaving at 11:30. That left me 2 hours to get some cleaning done, so I wouldn't feel too guilty. We headed to ikea and Zoe was too short to play in their playground, so we walked around. My friend got a lot of things for her classroom and I got a lock for our fridge. Richie found some chick-fil-a near Zoe's kitchen the other day and we hadn't been to Chick-fil-a in forever. So she needs to be locked outta the fridge! Then I bought some cute little bud vases for $.79 each. I think they would look cute for platters :) I'm obsessed! After lunch at Ikea (which kids eat free Aug 1-21) we left and got some $1 ice cream on the way out. Then we headed to hobby lobby. Which was funny, because I was browsing a blog and she kept talking about hobby lobby and then my friend mentioned it. I didn't even know we had one by us. So we headed there. It was huge, like Joannes and Micheal's smashed together. They were a little on the expensive side. My friend who is not a crafter in any sense was not impressed, but they had Christmas decorations so I was super excited lol. They had a bunch of cone trees covered and smothered in bright sparkly colors! I feel in love haha. So after that we headed home. Zoe was a grump. I took a quick 30 minute nap before I headed into work. 3 hours later I was phased. Fine by me. I headed home and relaxed the rest of the night.
I had fun doing this little project. I think I will do it periodically. Like maybe during the holidays. Just to see how every ones celebrations went. Now I am off to work again :(
