Weekend Recap

Weekends at home are very rare for us.  When I know that we've got a weekend ahead with nothing planned, I try to take advantage of every free moment. I went to my favorite yoga class on Saturday, and even got T to join me.  We did lots of work around the house, and even planted several annuals in our front yard.  T and I both loathe yard work, but when I found these flowers at Walmart for 98 cents each, I couldn't resist picking up several to plant all around our yard.  I love knowing that they'll come back every year, too. 

On Saturday, we went downtown to Connelly's Irish Pub to celebrate the holiday in style.  I was a little disappointed with the St. Paddy's celebrations on Saturday in downtown Greenville.  Growing up in Columbia, we always had a huge St. Patrick's celebration in 5 Points downtown.  Greenville didn't have anything major organized for the weekend, which I think was a major miss for them.

We also pulled out the grill for the first time this year.  Since the weather has been so nice lately, T and I have been loving spending time on our porch.  Last year we didn't use it enough. We're hoping to make the space more inviting this spring, so that we're more likely to use it. 

We made yakitori, one of our favorite Japanese appetizers.  It's basically just skewered chicken with a sweet soy glaze on top, and it was very tasty.  We served it with sticky rice and salads with ginger dressing. I found there recipe here.

I also was able to make several new necklaces for my Etsy shop.  I just started using horsehair tassels, and I'm loving the look.  I even had to keep one for myself, something I rarely let myself do. I have two posted right now if you're interested! 

Hope y'all had a great weekend as well, and happy St. Paddy's Day!
