General Life Update

I've been continuing my old movie resolution these past couple days with a few classics: Marathon Man (1976) starring Dustin Hoffman. It was a good story but super slow. I gave it 3 stars on Netflix.

Next up was Visiting Hours (1982) with a crazy young William Shatner. I gave this one 4 stars. 

Lastly I watched Women in Cages (1971) last night. TERRIBLE. Awful story, awful acting, awful everything. One star. 

I haven't made much progress on some of my other resolutions- like sewing my own clothing so I figured now is as good a time to start as any! I downloaded this pattern today from Grainline Studio and plan to start work on the first attempt tomorrow! I have the perfect fabric for it!

It's been ridiculously warm these past few days so we've had our windows open to enjoy it. I have a crazy bout of spring fever! I can't wait for shorts and sandal weather!

Roger and I went to Anthro today and I scored a super cute green wool and cashmere sweater for only $9.95! So. Excited! I also have a LivingSocial coupon to use at UAL sometime in the near future. I haven't been thrifting in a while so I may do that tomorrow instead to keep it cheap :)

(Cute button detail on the back of my new sweater!)

I am thinking of entering this BurdaStyle challenge to encourage myself to sew more. Plus, I really like the free blouse pattern!

Last Thursday I went to my very first Nashville Predators game with Kathleen because my boss gave me 2 tickets he wasn't going to use. It was a blast! We eventually lost in the shoot-out after no one scored in overtime but the excitement leading up to it was so fun!

It seems like it is going to be a slow week at C.R. Gibson so I may not be called into work. Anyhow, that's a general life update. I am sure I am forgetting things but that's it for now :)
