Monday, Monday!

Mr. Army Man & I were both off today. He had a four day weekend. I am normally off on Monday & Tuesday's so this is no big deal to me. The Art Institute is observing President's Day on Friday this year. Can't wait.. My Friday class is so boooorrrinnngggg.. Foreign speaking man.. blah blah blah. I teach myself. Yeah. Anywhoo.. Mr. Army Man is off Friday too. So we have lots planned.

Let's rewind:
We both have gotten a lot done today. Mr. Army Man straightened up the shed to make it accessible to me while he is away. (He leaves just a few short days away..) He mowed our yard, packed and organized our laundry room (he moved the washer/dryer and swept, & organized the shelves). He's amazing.

I did homework, ran to Wal-Mart, helped the hubby make dinner, and started some Pinterest projects.
I got these cute candles and place mats for our kitchen table. It needed some spicing up! Normally you wouldn't be able to see the bottom of the table. It is always piled with junk: mail, keys, spare change. You get the picture. It looks great now. Let's hope it stays that way! And it only cost me $2 per place mat & $10 for all the candles. :)

I also got a new rug for in front of our sink..For a whooping $5.00!

And a new 'decorative' dish rag. (I know the hubby will wipe his hands on it soon..Ugh men!)

And I did this little basket from which I saw the idea on Pinterest! I'm not quite done with mine yet but this is the start.

It has a small cookie sheet in bottom so clean up is easy
One from Pinterest.
This is mine.
I also made some of Harry Potter's Butter Beer. You can find the recipe here.
Mr. Army man didn't like his much but I thought it was delicious!
Hope everyone has had a great President's Day!


  1. Glad you added some little things you saw from Pinterest! I actually like how yours turned out better to be honest. Hope you're having a good week!

  2. Haha, I have the SAME dishtowel issue ... no use putting super-cute ones up, they are used for cleaning up coffee spills!


Love hearing from y'all! Thanks for reading!
