Happy Leez

It's the end of Spring Break... :(
I'm not ready for school to start up again. BUT, it's been a pretty good break. I worked too much, I think, but I left early yesterday and I took today off, too.
Anyway, I hung out with some good friends and got a decent amount of sleep every night. That makes for a pretty decent break, I'd say.

Heather came over on Thursday night and we decorated spools. I know it sounds weird, but we were at a flea market last week and saw these picture holders made out of spools. Heather had the idea to lose the picture holder part of the idea and just put them in mason jars. So, we did.

We had to unravel all of the thread off of the spools, which took forever. I'm pretty sure we could have found an easier way to do this...

We wrapped the spools in ribbon/twine and then glued a button on them. It was super easy/simple, but I really like how they turned out. We are old ladies together. It's kind of awesome.




Friday night, Heather, Dave, Amy, Anthony and I went to see The Adjustment Bureau. I still don't know how I felt about it. A part of me thought that it was really good-- the acting was awesome, and the story line was semi-original; although, the idea itself is not original. The other part of me thought that they sort of butchered the potential of the idea. If you haven't watched the movie, I would recommend it, I think. (Haha- that's not very convincing.) I'm not going to do a "review," because I truly do not know if I liked it or not. Anyway, I loved Inception; I liked The Adjustment Bureau.
After the movie, we went to Ziggie's, and I'm pretty sure everyone thought that we were drunk. We weren't-- we just have fun. 
Everyone came over to my house afterwards, and we watched a ton of episodes of The Office. It was fun, as usual.

Tonight, I'm meeting up with a bunch of people at Bambu (AN AMAZING PLACE) for delicious food before Jeremy Larson's concert. Amy introduced me to "him" and I've been hooked ever since. I'm excited to see Lydia again, too.


Tomorrow, Amy and I are checking out a new church. I'm excited about that.

Okay, it's going to be a good end to my spring break. I am so blessed.

Cheers.

I haven't seen the movie yet, it looks interesting.

I'm going to be at the concert tonight too! I'm excited to be there!

What church are you checking out?

I want to see it. The previews made me think of an American version of 1984, but I don't know if the movie is actually like that.

The concert was SO amazing. And I am glad we were able to hang out after!

Have fun at church.

Decorated spools? Oh my gosh, that's so cute! I love it. My friends and I like to crochet when we're together. I dream of growing up and joining a crochet circle! Hehe! I love arts and crafts!
