A hoot!







This weekend was a hoot! I purged my apartment and ended up with three loads of goodwill donations. I made chocolate chip cookies. Had fried plantains at the Great Dane. Made a trip down to Chicago to meet Callie and Vana for coffee (what a delight these two are--thank you girls, you made my Sunday). And watched the snow melt!

What did you guys do this weekend?

ahhh I loved seeing you again Jewels! I am so glad we reconnected and finally met sweet Callie! Niko is munching on a chocolate chip cookie (something i wouldn't do so early in the morning, but couldn't help it - he said " but your friend made them for me, mama"...)I am munching on Callie's shortbread. OMG! heavenly!
Happy Monday, darling!

What a fun (and productive) weekend. We had a busy weekend too with laying the hardwood flooring upstairs, relandscaping the front yard and running around with the kids. I'm exhausted and need another day to recover! :) Glad you had a good one!

Oh sounds like fun - and like you got lots done!

I love all the pics and I always love a good purge. I did a huge one right before we left for the beach. This weekend I was at the beach, but home now, booo.

Julia- you had a full dance card this weekend! It sounds like a great time!
I hope you didn't get caught in the weather we had on Sunday.

Enjoy! xoxo

Oh, what a fun weekend that sounds like! I was feeling under the weather this weekend so was cooped up in the house drinking tea all weekend--which really wasn't all that bad: ) Sometimes nice to have an excuse to do nothing!

what a wonderful weekend! I was pretty busy but I don't think I was as productive as you! :) We did get our new couch though...after ordering it over 3 months ago! so that was pretty exciting:)

Sounds like a productive weekend! Thats always a good feeling. I celebrated family birthdays, went to estate sales, and saw the Full Monty Play yesterday. It was SO GOOD! Happy Monday!

What a wonderful weekend, Julia! Mine was pretty relaxing, windy, stay-at-home Saturday and delicious barbecue on Sunday.
Have a lovely Monday, darling!

Yay! You're an inspiration. I will go to Goodwill this week with my piles of old stuff.

Doesn't that feel good? Clean and donate then reward with special time with friends. This WAS a great weekend for you.

We finished up the ski season and cleaned up the cabin where we go during ski season. It felt like the end of a book, we were excited to finish up yet sort of sad it is over.

Karen said...

Sounds like a wonderful weekend! I got a manicure, made some bread, walked around in the historic part of town...and avoided cleaning :)

Rachel Mallon said...

What a great feeling to purge! Sounds like your weekend was lovely.

I love that hidden bookshelf on that bottom living room interior.

I also love your idea of the perrier bottles!

Lizzy said...

That sounds like a very nice weekend.
We have also been decluttering-got rid of ten boxes of books.

hmstrjam said...

sounds like fun Julia! We trekked it through the rain- ate too many chips and made ourselves sick and caught some of the Dicken's series on PBS- didn't quite make it through Little Dorrit last night though without falling asleep... love the pink walls!

Callie Grayson said...

I had such a wonderful time meeting you and vana. I ate your chocolate chip cookies for breakfast, so yummy!!!!
My weekend was completely fantastic and the best part was spending the day with you and vana. I hope to drive up your way one day soon!!

Mary Jo from TrustYourStyle said...

Sounds so wonderful! I cleaned too! For 6 hrs straight on saturday and then didn't have much energy to do much except eat and watch movies the rest of the weekend. Yours sounds more productive :) Love those photos!

Candi said...

I'm glad you had a great weekend! I wish I was in Chicago, and got to hang out with all of you! :)
