So the Fourth of July was very different for me this year... Kevin had to work a shift from 9am till 5pm :( That meant I had to hangout by myself for the holiday. I must say, I wasn't in such a good mood and didn't feel like getting out of the house much that day. Not knowing anyone here is pretty hard, especially around holidays. I was however surprised when Kevin came home, he decided to take me to dinner a movie and to see fireworks at one of the parts in Westlake. We ended up eating a a very good Italian place and we watched Brave finally!! After the movie we headed over to the park to watch the fireworks go off.. they were GREAT!
On Thursday I stayed at home again and did some cleaning and laundry around the house. I got out of the house around noon to go look for a bike and to go grocery shop. I didn't find a bike yet, but I think Kevin and I are both going to go tomorrow (on his day off) to go both buy some bikes possibly! I think it would be nice to wake up and go riding on some of the trails around the area. Also, I am looking into joining a gym. It would be nice to be around people and possibly get to know some new people ... and what better way to do that than joining a gym?!
Anyways, Kevin has been super stressed with all the hours he has been putting in at the hospital so last night I wanted to surprise him with a special dinner:) I made a stuffed Chicken with feta, breadcrumbs, tomatoes, bacon and garlic. I also made fresh green beans with garlic, butter bacon and lastly, corn of the cob! Everything turned out great! I also decided to make some homemade brownies because you know how much Kevin loves sweets!! As soon as he walked in the door he was so surprised I set the table and had wine out with candles lit.
The table a set up :)
Our yummy food!!
Everything tasted SO good!!
Well today I had some packages come in the mail... my NEW DISHES for John Ward Interior:))) I was SO excited to get these three large packages!
These are my Fleur de lis plates!
The Fleur de lis bowls
coffee or cake plates:)
This is them set up :)I LOVE THEM!
All stored away in my cabinet:)
Lastly, this next picture is a picture of the material I got to make my curtains! haha... I have been talking about making these curtain for the past two weeks, but have not actually sat down to start making them :( I think I haven't started to make them yet, because it is sorta a BIG project and will take a lot of time! I am however, going to take out my sewing machine today and start working on them finally!! I'm not stopping till I have finished... or leaving the house! This means I might not leave for a few days!lol You know me, I like to start a project and not stop till it is finished.. because if I don't then it will never get finished. But anyways, that is the project I have for today:) I will post pictures tomorrow to show the progress! Oh and I still have a few more projects to do so I will be working on those as well once I finish the curtains.
The material is a burlap type fabric that is a off white color.. I am going to sew in some other colors to it to give it a design.. hope it turns out okay!
Well, I guess I should get busy on these curtains! I will talk to you a little later today. I love you very much and can't wait to see you next Saturday!!!! I miss you!!!
