Successful weekend

I paid off my couch this weekend. Woohoo! Mini victories!! There were big things I bought when moving into my house... the couch, and the appliances.

I hateeeee having 'credit card debt' hanging over my head, but everyone convinced me I should go ahead and do the "18 month no interest" financing, just so I can hang onto the cash in case something were to go wrong. I took their advice... and grumbled every month when I got those two bills ha. So I'm extremely happy to be down to one!

Can I get a mini hallelujah?!

That hallelujah is fitting, considering I got Jehovah'd this weekend. Nothing against them, I just don't prefer the door-to-door religion thing.

I woke up to a thunderstorm on Saturday and did a little sewing and crafting. I am working on a wreath for my front door... it involves burlap and a fabric flower... I can't wait to finish & share!!
I caught up with a friend over non-sushi sushi that night (I get a roll with tempura chicken and mango, it's heavenly)

I worked on my yard all day Sunday - and even developed a bit of a farmers tan. YES! We had a gorgeous weekend, full of sunshine and blue skies! I've got soo many flowers popping up, which makes me so happy! It's odd buying a house in the fall... you don't know what's gonna be on your plate come spring. I can say I'm pleasantly surprised so far!

This is my favorite bush, it's blooming a bright coral color right outside my sun room.
Russell is a fan of it too!

And I also made some super delicious chocolate chip cookies. I've been auditioning new recipes the past year or so... these may just be my favorite so far!

 In fact, I'm eating a few right now for breakfast!

Hmm what else... oh yea, my plate wall in the dining room no longer exists... one plate crashed down yesterday shattering, so I removed the rest for now. I guess I spoke too soon about my love for CommandStrips!

Here's hoping my 4 day work week flies by... i can't wait to jaunt off to Vegas on Friday!!

Paying off debt is such a great feeling!

Good for you for paying off the couch!

Sounds like a good weekend...can't wait to see the wreath!

Casey said...

Can't wait to see your wreath! I love burlap...looks so natural and earthy! And yay for paying off your couch! I'm proud to say I only have a small...er somewhat small...Von Maur debit to pay off currently! :)

Becca Christensen said...

Yay! I love to pay things off. And I can't wait to be debt free...years from now when I finally pay the last of my townhome off. ; ]


Jenna said...

Congrats on paying off your couch! I did the same thing when I moved and made the monthly payments until it was paid off but before the finance charges kicked in. I am not a big fan of racking up credit card bills either, but it seemed to be the only way I could afford new furniture after purchasing a house!

Congrats on paying off the couch!

Sarah @ Scissors and a Whisk said...

Hallelujah for the sofa! And how cute is Russell?! I'm loving that pic! :) Also, if you don't mind whipping up a few more delicious chocolate chip cookies and sending them my way, that would be great! Thanks! :) lol
