Memorial Day Weekend was a whirlwind weekend for me. I woke up in 4 different states in 4 days and participated in 2 wedding celebrations in 2 of the states. It was a busy one, but it was a lot of fun. Needless to say, I'm getting this post out little late, but as they say, better late than never, right?
Here's the breakdown of last week:
Monday- My dad makes amazing spaghetti. He's been perfecting his spaghetti for the past..I dunno, forever? I finally made what I consider my first decent spaghetti- it doesn't rival his, but I thought I did a pretty good job. Monday, I also helped my sister scrap my first homemade card.
Tuesday- For the first time, I watched my (not even two-year old) nephew in his swim class! It may have been the cutest thing I've ever seen.
Wednesday- I love seeing how other people decorate their homes. Wednesday, I got to visit a friend's home for the first time and got to see some of the new pieces of furniture she and her husband recently purchased. I love her style!
Thursday- I've been following so many new blogs out there and I'm hooked on those that visit thrift stores and upcycle furniture and other unique finds. One of the many blogs I've been following is the Richmond Thrifter. Well, all of you upcyclers have inspired me and I visited my first thrift store in my new town of residence! Thursday was also the first day for my master bedroom makeover.
Friday- I saw the first motorcycles of the weekend prepping for the Rolling Thunder ride in Washington DC. Seeing them ride on behalf of the POW (prisoner of war) and MIA (missing in action) servicemen and servicewomen always gives me goosebumps and makes me want to jump on a motorcycle and join them.
Saturday- This was a big day for me. It was my first day as a civilian in 10 years! Yes, I am officially out of the Army. It's all still sinking in. I also attended the first wedding celebration of the weekend which included my first professional swing dance lesson.
Sunday- I had my first martini with no added flavors.
What's everyone else been up to? Feel free to share!
