Weekend Wrap-up

Yesterday was a pretty busy day.  I headed West with the ultimate destination being Fort Worth's Cowtown where I was meeting my parents for dinner, but I made a few detours along the way.  I stopped off in downtown Grapevine at the British Emporium. 

I was looking for a few things that I needed for my Royal Wedding watch party.  Of course they didn't have what a I wanted, but I still managed to drop a load of cash.  I got some Lemon Curd, Clotted Cream, Jams, some other stuff I won't reveal to you until I do my party post, and this tea towel...
I have a plan for this towel, so stay tuned.

I then headed on over to Fort Worth to visit my friends Matt, Suzanna, Bennett, Kate & Lucy dog.  Matt went to work but the rest of us headed off to J Rae's for cupcakes!
Ben & Kate anxiously awaiting their cupcakes...
Enjoying their cupcakes...
or at least the icing!

After that, I went to meet my parents who were visiting Fort Worth for the weekend in the RSTB (Rock Star Tour Bus).  We ended up eating at Pappadeaux and then I finally headed back home.  Once at home I stayed awake reading until 2 a.m.  Ugh!  Why do I do that?

Today, I worked a little more in the yard.  My Mom brought me some plants yesterday, so I did a little rearranging of what I planted the other day and finished everything up.

Yesterday morning I got out the spray paint.  You may have noticed in my photos the other day that my black pots were a little chipped, so I fixed them up...
and I painted a couple of clay pots for my tables...
I decided to add a little color to my world!
I finished this planter up with some plants Mom brought me...
I've tried so hard to plant things that will not give up the will to live in our hot summer.  I hope everything makes it and looks good all season.

Someone enjoyed relaxing in the shade while I did all the work!
I wish this was a 3 day weekend!  I still have so much I want to do, but thanks to my 2 a.m. bedtime last night, I'm lacking the energy/motivation.  Oh well, maybe I can find some time this week to check some items off my list.

That tea towel is so cute! I've never heard of a British Emporium before, but it looks neat! I'm so excited that you're throwing a royal wedding party - if I didn't have finals coming up, I would totally love to host one. I can't wait to see your post about it!!!

Can't wait to read all about the royal wedding watch party. I bet your party will be better than mine. I'm going to sit up in bed and turn on the TV. I will live vicariously through you!
