1. My Occasional Table
I’ve had my eye on Ikea’s “Occasional Table” for a long time. Now that I finally decided to buy one, I found out that they no longer make them. What is up with that? Well, I had this burning need for one, so I made myself one. I used a gel stain for the first time and I wasn’t crazy about it. I had a hard time spreading it thinly, but I’m happy with the overall project. It’s not perfect, but it works.
2. Miles Time
Yesterday I spent the majority of the day with my nephew. Isn’t he the cutest? He’s honestly the happiest baby on the planet.
3. Summer in D.C.
Ivan got an internship offer at the Pentagon. He’s not positive that he’s going to take it, but we’re pretty sure. It is the pentagon after all. If he goes, I’m going to go. I’m a graphic designer and my boss will let me work from D.C. I’m pretty excited about the idea, I think 3 months in the Capitol will be a ton of fun. One of my best friends from high school lives there, so that will be nice to see more of her.
4. I’ve Been Getting My Workout On
Ivan’s been in Texas since Tuesday, so I’ve had some free time. I’ve been trying to get as many workouts in as possible. I’ve been somewhat successful and it feels great. I really need to make more time for working out on a regular basis.
5. My Etsy Purchase
I found this fun way of storing ties on pinterest and decided I HAD to find a pop crate. I found one that a local etsy seller had listed and was able to pick it up. Because I didn’t have to pay shipping it only set me back $30. They are listed for $75 online. Yikes.
