My weekend wrap up

I feel like I haven’t had the time recently to blog as much as I used to. And that’s weird cause I’m done with classes. Well, I did just work a 6 day week, so that’s probably why I’ve been so busy and away from my laptop. Remember my latest organization project, my closet and tons of clothes? Well, I did weed through my clothes and get rid of some. I can actually fit all of my shirts in my closet now. Before I get rid of them, I’d like to look through them and try to upcycle them like Jill over at Creating My Way to Success. I’ve been seeing her recent posts of how she’s been taking her children’s clothes that don’t fit anymore and making them into new clothes that will fit. She probably used a sewing machine, so if that’s the case, I won’t be able to upcycle my clothes like she did. Take a look at her blog though, she has made some great things!!!

I finally finished the book I started reading at the end of March. It was House Rules by Jodi Picoult. I definitely recommend this book!!! It was really good! I never wanted to put it down to, but as you can tell, I started it in March and it is now May, so I was forced to put it down a lot because I didn’t have much time to read. I posted a few months ago saying that I was making a goal for myself: to ready 20 books between then and the end of the year. Well, 1 down only 19 more to go!!! The next book I just started today is called Damaged and is written by Cathy Glass. It was a suggestion by my step-mom and she said it was really good. I’ll let you all know how it is then. Hopefully it won’t take me over a month to finish this one!!

My fiancé and I went to Walmart Friday night cause we needed a few things. We were over at the deli getting lunchmeat and I noticed these tiny bananas in the produce section. I had never seen them before so I had to get them!!! They are so tiny and cute!!

One last thing…I just wanted to share with you what I’m going to be making for dinner. I’m going to take ground beef and brown it. Then I’ll drain it and add a can of Bush’s Maple Cured Bacon Baked Beans (this was my fiancé's suggestion) , some cheese, and some spices. Then I’m going to put that in a pan and cover it with biscuits and bake it. I’ll be sure to let you know how it turns out! Have a great Sunday evening everyone!!

Oh wait…there is one more thing and it’s exciting!! I’m going to start doing reviews and giveaways soon and I have 3 coming up in the near future! So be sure to keep your eye out for that!!
