Weekend Edition X

This past week I had a lot on my plate.. It was crazy busy.. So, I have a lot of catching up to do.. sorry for not dropping by your lovely blogs.. don't worry I will definitely be reading them this week...

Did I mention the weekend was even busier.. I din't even know you could do SO much in two days.. Wanna know what I did this weekend.. but before that there is a little back story to it..

We had scheduled " a pest control fumigation " last week.. not that there was a need for it but you know just being a little more careful.. I hate any kind of bugs or insects inside my apartment... So, we've been putting our stuff into boxes.. and I seriously had no idea.. there is just so much stuff that I've collected in the past year and a half that I don't even remember buying.. let alone using it.. and some amazing stuff that I had been hiding..

Actually I could say that it was a very productive week for me.. I cleaned out my entire apartment in a matter of about 4 days and now it feels brand new... well, some of it is because of what we did on the weekend..

Friday started off with me still unpacking the boxes.. especially when you need your morning coffee fix and the coffee machine is in one of the boxes that contained the kitchen stuff!! Ok, now you've got the coffee machine but there is no cup, spoon or sugar and you have absolutely no idea where these things are, So, you go on and open all the boxes, make yourself a cup of coffee with no place to sit.. break the rule of no eating in the bedroom and have your breakfast.. thinking.. this is gonna be a Looooonnngg day.. and before you read on.. I should tell you.. this is going to be a looooong post!! :P

I gather all my strength cause there was a lot of lifting and climbing and setting and cleaning to do so.. but guess what I completed all the work before hubby came home from office... It felt so good... After all that it was time to go out for dinner.. we wanted to try this new cafe I found but turned out it closes earlier than we thought.. We decided to go for Indian food... Comfort food for me... :)

Saturday started out early, you must be thinking I should have slept till late to make up for the tiredness.. but well we had different plans.. We had signed up for an archery class... and lemme tell you.... You should definitely try it.. it's so much fun.. plus I loved our coach.. he was so patient with us.. told us all the technique.. me being the worst at it.. he took the time to work with me...

What I wore : Shirt : H&M, Cami : american apparel , Jeans : American Eagle , Shoes : Skechers

Hubby decided to give me a pose!! Loved it!!

My quiver of arrows!!

Men in action!

It looks like m concentrating too much LOLZZ

It looked like a scene from a movie.. all ready to fire at the enemy!!


I did get hurt hurt though, No. the arrow din't go through any part of my body... but while shooting it the string of the bow hit my arm pretty bad and not one or two but several time I guess I needed a longer arm guard.. and now It's all swollen and bluish-greenish-reddish in color and pains like hell to touch.. but I guess that's something to show off.. I did something new.. yay!!

It looks nasty.. dosen't it!

In spite of getting hurt and everything we were determined to do our next project : Painting the wall of our living room.. hubby had been obsessing about it for a long time and we both thought.. Let's do it!!

while going home from the class we thought "why don't we pick up the color on our way home?".. we stopped by Dunn - Edwards.. but voila.. we both forgot the name of the colors we had chosen and got confused.. We picked up a new color that we both agreed on!! and it looks amazing!!

It looks blue in natural light!

and grey in yellow light!

We did 2 quotes of paint on the wall before going to sleep that night...

On Sunday we cleared up all the area..

I made them... :)

 I made four wall decor paintings.. We hung  them..

We  decided a place for hubby's new snowboard..

I cleared up my studio area.. It looks so neat now.. got rid of an old computer table that had been taking a lot of space in my studio..

Gol gappas and samosa feast!!
We finally rested at night by watching our engagement dvd.. and laughing at some moments... and having gol gappas and samosas (Indian Food) for dinner...

and also.. Today is my Brother's birthday...
 Dearest Sukrit.. Wishing you a very very happy birthday!! May God bless you and give you everything you wish for...
 I'm thinking of making something sweet today to celebrate as I can't be with him right now to have the yummy birthday cake!!.... Any suggestions??


  1. You get so much accomplished during your weekends! I barely get out to do anything, ha. That bruise looks pretty kind of looks like a heart (to me)? You should make red velvet cake with cream cheese icing, its so yummy and a total guilty pleasure well worth it! :)

  2. Wall color looking nice :) and rest of my questions over at the phone call.

  3. Hey! Seems like you had a fun weekend. I follow u on instagram so I was wondering about the DIY project.
