The Low Key Weekend

What a nice, relaxing weekend it was. I was hoping for a low key weekend to get some stuff done around the house and that's exactly what I got.

Friday night was a nice dinner with Alisha after a pretty nice day at work.

Saturday morning I had brunch with Cristina after we went to WW. I love brunching on a Saturday--I think it sets the tone for the day. After that, I met my Dad at my house because he was dropping off something for me (see bel0w) and I watched the Syracuse game. The sun was shining so I thought I'd head up to Tablerock to take a walk. I've REALLY missed my walks up there since it's been under snow and I don't have appropriate footwear.

I just got a new memory card for my blackberry so I have been taking LOTS of pictures with that.

Love the views (even with the snow) The view of O-State (for my alum friends) This was my favorite part of the walk--it was so nice to see the sun.After that I hit up a basketball game on campus and then ran some errands before I headed home to hang out with a friend.

Today (like last Sunday) was a great day to stay at home and organize closets a project that has been on my list to do. Last weekend I did the accessories closet. This is what the result of that.

This closet is a stairwell that was blocked off at the landing when this house was made into two apartments. So there are bars hanging all the way up the stairs. It's the perfect place to put my bags and all the seasonal clothing. But the new thing are the hanging organizers for scarves, hats, wallets, etc. But TODAY I spent a majority of the day going through my dressers and closet to reorganize everything (and get rid of stuff). As I mentioned above, my Dad brought me the China cabinet that I've never had room for before now.

I put it in my bedroom because I definitely could always use more storage in there. I never thought of using this for something other than dishes before but I'm so glad I did. It has glass doors so I put fabric on the inside of the glass. I'm happy with the way it turned out. It's on the other side of the fireplace and blocked the long window. Now I can focus on what curtains I want to put up there.
Here is the inside. I'm using it for t-shirts and sweatshirts mostly.
I did manage to get a good workout in this afternoon too. Unlike most, I have to work tomorrow so I'm watching the Golden Globes and then hitting the bed.

What did you do this weekend?

What a great idea for the cabinet! I love it! I still can't get over that accessories closet. I need one of those. :)

Hi again! I got my jeans at New York and Company. They are the Mid-Rise Straight Leg Jeans.

I am glad you like the reviews I am doing. I have enjoyed it myself. The letter was great to write but I was sad to read it and see that nothing changed over the year. Oh well, new year.
