Stay-cation, DIY and a Bottle of Wine

By

I’m house-sitting for a friend this weekend and looking after her sweet doggie Griffin! I’m looking forward to it because I’m considering it a little stay-cation. I have no plans on leaving, putting real clothes or makeup on or doing any real work!

They have a fantastic pool so I’m keeping my fingers crossed for awesome weather tomorrow and will welcome the downtime to catch up on reading. I have a giant stack of magazines I haven’t even opened and J got me a really fascinating book for my birthday called The Divide: American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap. If you are at all interested in the bank scandals of the late 2000’s and how it relates to the criminal justice inequalities in America…it’s an incredibly engaging and thought-provoking read!

I also brought a ton of craft supplies with me. It’d be great to cross a few DIY’s and blog posts off my list that I’ve been dying to do, but just haven’t carved out the hours to get done. But look! I have found a whole weekend of hours! I’m definitely going to take a cue from In Residence blogger, Anne, and put a new spin on her Tassel Pillows. 

Just obsessed. So those are my big plans for the weekend. I’m really not mad about it. I’ve been working my tail off and a lazy day reading my the pool/ diy-crafting is just what the doctor ordered. And a good drink or two of course.

What are you guys up to this weekend?
