Weekend wrap up

I started off my days off by having breakfast for supper when I got home Thursday night. I love biscuits and gravy. Only I just like the gravy when it is made from bacon grease, not sausage.

Friday morning I went to McKay's and took back a few books. I didn't have very many and didn't expect to get more than enough to get 2 or 3 new books hopefully.

But I ended up with enough to get 8 new books. I love series books so these are all a start of a series by each author. 

Then I made a stop at Dollar Tree and found some cute summer flip flops and a matching bag. 

I picked up a new glass, a drinking bottle (how cute is that?) and some candles.

 For my beach room, I found this sign. They are starting to carry a lot of these wooden signs and I love them.

Since I don't want too much blue in my beach room, I thought this one could go in there on another wall.

I have some craft projects I want to do that involve paint. I finally found the sea glass paint that I have been looking for. Can't wait to try it out. I love theses little bottles of craft paint at Walmart. They have an amazing selection and they are just .50 cents each.

While I was in Lowe's getting the sea glass paint, I picked up a few paint charts for a little project I am going to be doing in children's church. 

When I sat down to read that afternoon, I realized I needed a new bookmark for my books. 

So I grabbed my crochet thread and cut a big length off. 

Braided it with a tassel on the end. 

Then I punched a hole and trimmed down a paint chip and wah-lah and instant book mark.

I picked up Shelby and she was my date Friday night to a local school production of Grease. I supplied a bench from my front porch for one of the scenes and I was given two tickets as a thank you. 

We really enjoyed it. I couldn't believe the talent. I was totally blown away.

Saturday I went with my daughter and Shelby into town, but didn't really do any great shopping to show you....unless you get thrilled when somebody buys trash bags and Ziploc bags.  Saturday night I just spent most of my time on the couch watching TV and enjoy some peace and quiet after an extremely busy hectic work week. I actually fell asleep on the couch until 1:00 in the morning. Then Sunday was church and back to work. So that was my weekend. I hope you had a great one as well.
