{Long} Weekend

Can I tell you how amazing it feels to not be at work on a Monday? Kind of loving that I get President's Day off. I worked from home on Friday, so having that day semi-off and having today off has really extended this weekend! 

As I mentioned, I worked from home, which was so nice after Thursday's announcement. Oliver and I stayed in bed all morning. {Him sleeping, me working on the computer.} During lunchtime, I ran some errands we did lots of laundry. 

My office closed at 4 p.m., so I got a haircut and a massage Friday night. {Not simultaneously, of course! Ha!} It felt amazing to be pampered! 

My co-worker's son turned one, so I went over to her house early to help set up the party. Afterwards, I ran some more errands and while out, I found the best new Essie pale pink: Essie "Muchi, Muchi." 

Brandon played golf with a friend all day, so I came home and ordered a pizza and watched "Kourtney and Kim Take Miami." {I know, I know...}

We slept in {shh} and enjoyed the gorgeous, gorgeous weather outside. I think it was so motivating because we got a ton of stuff done around the house. 

The biggest think we did was repaint this old dresser that my grandparents gave us. Unfortunately, I don't have a "before" photo, but just picture it as really dark brown...almost cherry. 

The other dreeer in our bedroom is mine from when I was a little girl and I love it because it perfectly matches our cream, nailhead-trim headboard. Since I don't like the look of matchy-matchy furniture, I gladly accepted this dresser from my grandparents. 

We actually spray painted it, and used two cans of Rust-Oleum's Satin Finish primer {it was like $1} and three cans of their American Accents Satin Finish Spray Paint in "Ivory Silk." I think the total for this entire project was about $10, which can't be beat! 

The dresser looks awesome in our bedroom now and if you didn't know better, you'd think the two dressers were made by the exact same people! 

As I mentioned, I'm off today and am loving it! Can I just say how much I love the natural light in our house in the mornings? I usually have to leave around 7:45 a.m. every day, so I never get to see this. I forgot how beautiful it was! 

Hope y'all have a great day!
