A Show and Tell Weekend

Hello All!

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend. Here is the past weekend in a short recap. Yesterday Matty and I went to the grocery store, home depot, Michaels craft store, and best buy.

Here is a picture of my awesome new lamp we got in Burlington, VT for my birthday! I never included it in a blog post before so i figured better late then never!

Here is my Hagen Renaker Collection shadow box house! I got this at Michaels and painted it today! I found this collection last weekend when I was home visiting my mom. It really is her collection, but I always played with it as a kid and brought it home to live in Craft Village :)

After painting the house I planted the herb garden Matt bought me as part of my birthday gift! I love early gifts and I love the beautiful smelling basil, lemon thyme and parsley that are now adorning my windowsill!

And after the herbs I made cupcakes! I don't bake a lot but the cupcakes and frosting were on sale for about $2.50 total, so I couldn't resist! They are so soft and fluffy. I want to eat them all!
The ones on the bottom left have strawberries mixed in. They are so delicious. Every time berries are on sale I buy boxed muffin mix or cupcake mix and experiment with adding them and making berry sauces.

Well, I will try to not be such a stranger to my blog! Hope you are all having a fabulous day!

Where have we been?

Matt and I have just finished a super busy few weeks!

We kicked it off by celebrating Matt's birthday in Vermont. It was so fun, we stayed at the Sterling Ridge Resort Log Cabins in a deluxe cabin! We explored Vermont and then would take nice jacuzzi tubs :) It was just what the doctor had ordered! I will post all about the trip soon!

Then after we got back from the trip Miss Holly came back into our lives! We doggy sat for her while her parents went to London. It was great having her around. I really missed her, and she is a great snuggle bunny! The day after Holly came to stay with us something else exciting happened....


I still cannot believe that I am all done! It is a relief in some ways, but I do not start my full-time career job until September, so now I am stressing about what to do for work for the summer....

I know I should be enjoying some time off, and studying for my CPA exam (when my materials come), and crafting, but right now I am just being a bum and stressing. I am going to try and be better!

Hopefully I will be updating soon about how I have a summer job, or am at least less stressed!
