I am writing this at the tail end of a lovely weekend off. Nemo took the kids to visit his parents for the weekend, and I took the opportunity to refresh and revive my introverted self. The activities included sleeping in, drinking lots of tea in an unhurried fashion, making/eating cookies, re-watching The Hunger Games (by accident; I thought I had rented Catching Fire), and going to Mass all on my own. It. Was. Glorious.
Also in this photo is my rediscovered fireplace surround. The fireplace had been boarded up, completely covering the tile surround, and I took it upon myself to come up with a way to show off the tile and still keep kids out of the fireplace proper. I did it all by myself, table-saw use included! I blogged it over at Living in the Green.
Brooch: No clue, pretty though, right?
I've also got some new stuff on my face!
Over the weekend I also realized that I only own 2 tubes of lipstick and they are both the same color of my lips. So I took the opportunity to go to Sephora (for the first time ever) and try out some new colors. I ended up taking this one home...the sales lady assured me I could pull it off but I remain skeptical. Thoughts?
I am also currently rocking a super-cool DIY injury. Did you know that drill bits get hot when you use them a lot? Because friction. I knew that, but I guess my behavior didn't really reflect that. When I was working on the above-mentioned fireplace I was hurriedly changing a drill bit and the one that I'd just been using got too close to my face and...blammo. Nice burn blister that looks oh so like a raging zit. Fabulous.
Head over to Fine Linen and Purple to see some more WIWS posts that probably don't include facial injuries.
