A Martha-esque Weekend

This weekend, I got my Martha on.  The weather was beautiful - and I got to do a little bit of everything the good lady would admire - socializing, exploring, baking, decoupaging, cleaning, and planting.

We celebrated Greg's birthday with a delicious meal at Fox Brothers BBQ (if you live in Atlanta, check it out!).

The infamous Barnes Bunch was in town, and I was so happy to spend a few hours them in the warm sun at Little Five Points. 

I made Hidden Kisses cookies (which were delish).  No pictures because I ate them before I had the chance to photograph them.

I planted some lantana (an old favorite) and some pink impatiens.  I love both of these annuals because they grow fast and don't require too much attention and/or me remembering to water them more frequently than every two weeks...

I tried to ameliorate my sorry Easter decor by taking inspiration from Centsational Girl and getting my modpodge on.  It's like fingerpainting with glue - fun for hours!

I got our Easter baskets all ready for the bunny's visit.  I wanted baskets that would last a while, so I opted to buy $1 baskets at the thrift store and paint them.  Granted, I spent about $5 on paint, and it would have been cheaper to buy new baskets from Walmart, but you know what, I love to spraypaint and I felt like being domestic so I "made" my own from scratch so there.

All in all, wonderful weekend.  Now, if this silly little week would just go ahead and get on with it, that would be great.  Thankyouverymuch.
