Weekend Recap...

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. 

Not a bad weekend, huh?  What did you do?
