You guys, I’m so excited. This weekend, I get to get out of dodge and head to a cabin in the woods with some of my favorite people in the world. My sis and bff have put together a bachelorette weekend for me that includes all of my favorite things: eating, drinking, crafting, hiking, board games, more eating and drinking, more crafting, and best of all, friends! My bestie from HS is even flying up from Texas to join the party!! I have been looking forward to this weekend pretty much ever since they told me they were planning it, and now that it’s tomorrow I’m pretty much ignoring everything else I should be doing and instead thinking of how awesome it is going to be, coordinating with my peeps, and of course planning what to pack.
I mean, it’s January in Ohio, so that should mean snow boots and hats and scarves and warm socks, right? But here’s the forecast for the weekend:
That’s right, rain and highs in the upper 30s – 50s. So it looks like we will probably be inside most of the weekend, instead of hiking in the woods, which is fine, but kind of a bummer. I was so hoping for a lovely snowy scene as we walked through the woods – basically I wanted it to be a Robert Frost poem or something I guess.
But since we are going to be indoors, there will be more time for crafting, right?
I'm kind of hoping for a weekend that looks a lot like this... ps, isn't my new yarn bowl gorgeous???
Which brings us to the next problem – how do I make sure I have enough projects to work on?? In my head I’m fairly certain that in three days’ time I will be able to finish 2 pair of typing gloves, a pair of socks, and half a sweater. That seems reasonable, right? What if I run out of yarn? What catastrophe will fall then?
Nevermind the fact that I have already told everyone that we will be on flower making duty this weekend. I’ve at this point made exactly 3 flowers for the wedding
and we need roughly 200.
So at least part of the weekend will consist of an assembly line of sorts. I’m certain we will get them all made by Sunday night… the constraints of time and space have no power over me when I’m planning!
Overall I’m over the moon excited about this weekend, and I know it will be amazing. I have the best people and it will be the best time. I’m super sad that not everyone could make it, but I know they will be with us in spirit – have a glass of wine in my honor at some point this weekend, folks!
