This past weekend was like Christmas! I got two packages in the mail and was finally able to hand my vintage movie posters.
Friday: I couldn't wait to open my packages. I had won a giveaway hosted by the always awesome Lin. It was sponsored by Bead Up. Isn't this necklace cute? You should really check out her Etsy store. It's pretty neat.
Then, I dove right into my swap package. Lin was my partner and I knew it would be great. I just wasn't expecting how great. I will do a special post to show you all of the awesome stuff she sent, but take a look!
Saturday: This day was spent doing absolutely nothing for all but about 2 hours of it. I slept in. Then, when I did get up, I made myself some cinnamon rolls and coffee and had breakfast in bed. I stayed there for another 2 hours while watching Legally Blonde. It was nice. After finally getting up, I grabbed a book and headed out to the pool. There I stayed for a little over 2 hours. I received a call from Mom that she and Dad were heading to the local brewery, so I got ready and tagged along.
No sooner did I get home, but I put my comfy clothes back on and headed out on the balcony with my book, Dr. Pepper, and a snack and stayed there for a couple more hours and had to come back inside because bugs were biting me. I then spent the rest of the evening watching a movie and the Olympics.
Sunday: I slept in a little bit and then got to work on my big to-do list. I cleaned my apartment (including dusting!), did all of my laundry, caught up on my ironing, and made dinner for my parents. Sadly, I didn't get a picture of the meal, but it was Honey Pineapple Chicken and it was delicious! I also baked a cake using a new icing recipe.
Sometime throughout the weekend, I managed to finally hang up my vintage movie posters. I bought these posters at a local vintage shop while out with Mrs. P at least 8-10 years ago. I think they cost me around $3 each. They have been stored since then, and I was so excited to get them out. They look so great in my Hollywood inspired living room. I hung them up with a couple of other movie themed art that came from Kirkland's during our vacation.
