This weekend was wonderful because there was no crazy running around, no places that we had to be and no trips to the burbs. We stayed in town and did some things that we have been meaning to do. We hit Target and did some grocery shopping. We hung up (OK the husband did the actual hanging but I helped) some Pen and Ink monograms that I got the Hubs as his wedding present and cleaned up!
The two highlights were taking a wire and bead class with Diana We spent a few hours learning how to make earrings using different wire techniques. Then we went shopping and bought beads. I have made two earrings so far (not including the four that I made in class) and have to stop myself because otherwise I will be at the craft stores non-stop and we want to get out of debt so we are watching every penny. Diana and I had so much fun though and are going to take a necklace class next month. I think we have found a new creative outlet.
The second highlight was making these short ribs. For the past few weeks, I have been craving short ribs and asked Restaurant Refugee for a recipe so he posted this one. It was so good, the beef melted in your mouth and the bones fell out when I picked them up. We have enough for one more meal and I am saving the bones for my fall project when I attempt beef stock.
I had a great weekend very low key, uneventful and fun. I had a great time with my girl Diana and it was nice to spend some time at home with our NetFlix account.
So what were your two highlights?
