Oh Weekend, My Weekend!

I have to say that this weekend was pretty great! I spent the day Friday shopping and wandering around town. It was a nice break from school and FRG things.

I spent the rest of Friday making bottle cap coasters and I am really happy with how these turned out. It's amazing what casting resin can do!


Saturday, we headed off to the tattoo parlor to get our tattoos. As usual I got anxious and nervous before getting it done (you would think it would be easy after 6). It took him maybe 20 minutes to finish mine and it came out amazing!! I got it on my right shoulder and I couldn't be happier. Kyle got his done on his left leg (still within Army regulations haha) and I love it.

We will most likely be going back in a month or so to get more work done.


The rest of the day was spent grilling and watching movies. It was a great way to end the day.

Sunday was spent doing laundry, grocery shopping, cleaning and finishing up last minute school work. My Dad gets here late Wednesday night so I'm trying to prep everything for his arrival.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

  5. Mac loves PBR, so I've been debating what to do with all of the bottle caps (they're numbered like a deck of cards). I might have found a solution!
