My Weekend in Pictures

Happy Monday everyone.  This weekend was a quiet one for Dan, Heidi, and I.  With the rainy, cool weather on the East Coast we weren't really up for doing too much running around and opted to stay indoors where it was warm and cozy.  I actually preferred this because I got a bunch of work done on projects that I wanted to do for myself.  I thought I'd share a few of the photos with you.

We had an embarrassing amount of brown, mushy bananas is the freezer that were just waiting to be used up so I made deliciously moist Banana Blueberry muffins on Saturday morning.  I'll be sharing that recipe with you later this week - it's a winner, for sure.  I also used some of that banana to make Banana Coconut pancakes on Sunday morning.  Those were also quite delicious.

I nearly finished my Wiksten Tank.  Isn't it lovely?

I really struggled with the neck line.  I'm not quite sure what happened but I think I'm going to pull out my stitches and try it again.  It's also gaping a little bit in the front and back, but it's nothing that I can't live with and I think with a little tweaking I can get a better fit in the future.  I really like the pattern and for the most part (excluding that curved hemline!) it's a quick one to sew up.  I'll definitely be making more for my spring wardrobe.  

I also turned these little guys:

Isn't it fantastic?!  I'm ridiculously excited about my new desert terrarium.  Here are a few more shots:

Please excuse the photos.  I snapped them with my phone but I intend to get some better shots with  my camera in natural light.  I'll be doing a post dedicated to this terrarium detailing the materials, cacti and succulents used.  Readers, I am seriously in love with this.

A few more highlights included finally watching the English-version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.  We saw the Swedish-version a few months back and had been really looking forward to the 2011 film.  I'm completely enwrapped in the second book, The Girl Who Played with Fire, so viewing the film served as a nice little recap for me.  AND Sunday was the season premiere of The Killing.  Ah, yes.

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend, as well!  I'm looking forward to a four day work week (hooray!) so Monday doesn't seems quite so bad. :)
