Happy Weekend and Happy Mail!

I hope everyone had a good weekend. I LOVE my weekends, I actually get to spend some quality time with my hubby (and that makes me a VERY happy girl!)

Saturday we spent the day shopping and running errands. We hardly ever eat out, so we treated ourselves to lunch at a new Thai place we found. I tried Pad Thai for the first time. I really liked it, and Ariana did too! I took a picture of it but the lighting was so low in there I couldn't get a good picture with my phone ( I didn't have my camera with me). Anyways, it doesn't look appetizing in the picture that I toke, so I decided not to post it on here.

Sunday was a nice relaxing day at home (sort of). Sunday's are for sleeping in and pancakes at our house! My husband makes me different pancakes every Sunday. It's one of our weekend traditions :) We shoveled some MORE snow (haha my exercise for the weekend) watched a little football, played with Ariana, and I did a little crafting.

I finally finished my owl fabric project! I made a pillow! This is the 3rd pillow I've made, but by far my favorite! Here are the results:

 My cute owl pillow!

My felt owl that matches the owl on the fabric. He is handstitched!

button eyes

I love the fabric so much, I already have another project in mind!

Also, I was excited that the mail came today! No more being snowed in YAY!!! I loved my little package from my Happy Mail person! She is awesome!
