Miscellany Monday

Happy Monday everyone! I am linking up with Carissa at lowercase letters for another Miscellany Monday!

 For once my weekend actually seemed long, which was amazing! Jordan and I headed to Ohio on Wednesday and just got back last night around 7. It was a great trip and we were blessed to be able to see so many of our friends that still live in the area. Not to mention that we got to hang out with my brother-in-law and sister-in-law several times which is always so fun, as well as our little nephew who gets cuter every time we see him!

It was so crazy being back in Cedarville and not being a student there anymore. As I was walking around, and no longer recognizing any of the faces, I suddently felt so old. I got to visit Career Services where I used to work and say hi to all my co-workers and bosses. I also got to grab coffee with the adorable Miss Emma who has a wonderful blog that you should all check out here as well as my good friend Amy who I haven't seen in such a long time! I love catching up with great friends, even if it was just for a little while. 

Anyways, on to the the Miscellany Monday part of this blog! 

On Saturday, my friend Sara and I decided to make a pinterest craft (what else is new!). Since we are both newlyweds, and are obsessed with anything related to our wedding and our new husbands, we made a canvas that consisted of all the signifcant dates in each of our relationships, highlighting our wedding date among those other five dates. 

[ I wasn't planning on doing wedding colors (green/gray) but I really loved the way it turned out! My camera isn't the best but you can see that 09-04-11 is in gray, which is our wedding date. We were so happy with how they turned out ] 

I also decided to see for myself what is so great about the EOS chap stick that I've seen everyone have. My good friend Meg over at something beautiful told me that I needed to get one, so I did! I got the sweet mint flavor and I have to say that I do love it. I still use my Palmers Cocoa Butter but I love to combine them both for a minty twist. And, how adorable of a design is it, I'm a sucker for anything well designed :) 

Also while I was picking up my EOS at CVS I came upon some great deals that I couldn't pass up! I have wanted red lipstick for a while now but just didn't want to spend $10 on something that I wasn't sure how it was going to look on me. Well it was my lucky night because I got red lipstick and a deep red nail polish by Revlon both at 75% off. The lipstick was around $2 and the nail polish was a little more than $1 - how great is that!?

I hope that you all had a great weekend as well! Can't wait for another exciting two hour episode of The Bachelor tonight! Jordan and I are cleaning up the apartment and going grocery shopping today since his parents are coming to stay with us tomorrow! We are so excited to be with family and to be able to spend a few days with them! Happy Monday everyone!
