Weekend Plans 3/29 – 3/31

Happy Friday friends!

Another busy week has come and gone. I am so excited to enjoy the long Easter weekend with my family! First things first, I need to get rid of the headache that is conveniently located above my left eye. Once the annoying pain goes away, I am ready for pastel candies, knitting, working on deadlines, spending time with family, and, most importantly, celebrating Easter. Here’s what I have planned…

– As of yesterday evening I am officially obsessed with the video series called The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. I am a bit late to the party because on the same day that I start watching and become completely addicted, the final episode airs.  I can already tell I won’t want it to end! The series is a modern adaptation of Pride & Prejudice and centers around Lizzie Bennet’s video diary. It is so great.

– My double seed stitch scarf is getting longer and longer. I didn’t really know what it was going to be when I started (you know, stress knitting…) but I think it will be a nice chunky cowl for the fall. Also, I am still scouting photo locations for my finished granny blanket. I can’t wait to share the finished photos! It was such a fun project.

– I need to work on deadlines coming up in the next few weeks and new projects that are getting started. All good things though! :)

– I can’t wait to make Easter brunch with my mom. Not with plastic eggs of course…

– What is your favorite Easter candy? I already opened some sour gummy eggs to kick off the weekend.

– A set of pastel notebooks for more writing and planning ideas. I think I will use one for paper embroidery projects!

– This pretty white sparkle nail polish caught my eye on Pinterest. It is the perfect, spring polish!

That’s about it! If you celebrate, Happy Easter to you! I hope you all have a great weekend. What do you have planned?

    MK Wiles (who pays Lydia on LBD) is my friend from college! I’m so happy you like that show :)

    Also, your double seed stitch is gorgeous – how pretty would a granny-square blanket be interspersed with some solid squares like that?? Maybe I’ll try that soon with extra yarn I have around.

  2. Esther says:

    I can’t wait to check out the lizzie bennet diares. I have never heard of it before. Looking forward to seeing your finished blanket! Happy Easter weekend, Merideth! xo

    Sounds like a wonderful weekend. I LOVE those notebooks.
    I’m a huge sucker for the candy coated mini cadbury eggs…I’ve been eating WAY to much this year.

  5. anto says:

    TLBD is such a great and creative production! I loveeee it and was so sad to see it end.

    The pastel notebooks are beautiful. Have a lovely weekend!

  6. Hi Meredith :)
    Speaking of paper embroidery, you inspired me to try it & i posted about it on my blog today…
    (& linked to yours): makeandcheer.blogspot.com ~ i’ve been having a hard time getting started
    with embroidery on fabric, but i’m crazy about the paper way!
    Your blog is so lovely – thanks for all the great info, links, and beautiful photos.
    :) Happy Easter!

    Ah!! Thank you for loving the Lizzie Bennet Diaries!! They are simply wonderful!

  8. Beautiful! I really need to jump on the bandwagon and learn more than the basic stitches for knitting and crochet.


  9. What a beautiful grey you’re using for the scarf. I love it!
    I recall catching a LBD episode randomly and loving it, only to not stumble on it again.
    Here in the states, sometimes our PBS station will air just a few episodes of a series.
    Thank you for reminding me to find it.

    LBD sounds right up my street – I’m clearly even later to the party as I haven’t even heard of it … Maybe it’s not airing in the uk, I have to go find out more about it …

    This weekend we have lots of kiddo activities planned, mainly based around chocolate! But in between I have to hook up a collar for a friend of mine, she spied my post but can’t crochet so begged me to speedily make one for her daughter’s birthday on Monday!

    I hope your headache improves, I’m a fellow headache sufferer so I really sympathise.

    Have a lovely Easter, Em xxx

  13. Plain Jane says:

    I’ve never heard of the LBD but as a big fan of Pride and Prejudice I think I’m going to have to look it up! Your scarf is looking fab – you’d need it over here in the UK at the moment as it’s been freeeeeeezing x Jane

  14. Happy Easter Meredith! Have you seen the British programme Lost in Austen? I got a little addicted about 5 years ago, I reckon you’d love it if you can find it. Netflix might have it. Have a great weekend :) x

  15. Asma says:

    I love the LBD! They’re making another series, kind of a sequel, called Welcome to Sanditon. And another full series in the fall :)

  16. Belle Doan says:

    I love the scarf your knitting, im making an infintiy scarf but its taking forever haha

  19. Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for
    a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused ..

    Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!

    Common areas of appearance are the armpits, groin, around the mouth, eyes, nostril, navel, and genitals.
    It is a fact that, as one age, our skin loses a growing quantity
    of moisture; so, facial lines as well as imperfections are expected to occur.
    Some common problems that most men will encounter are described below, as well as the appropriate steps for male organ care that are needed to address them.
    Even mild rosacea can have lasting effects on you, such as potential scarring.
    In 2000 the International Incontinentia Pigmenti
    Consortium concluded that the condition is caused by a genomic rearrangement of the NEMO gene.

    If you fail to give your body this basic need, the skin would appear
    pale and more susceptible to troubles. One of these include Keratosis pilaris rubra red painful bumps, Keratosis pilaris alba coarse
    bumpy skin with no irritation, Keratosis pilaris rubra faceii
    reddish rash on the cheeks. As soon as you notice that your cocker spaniel ate something and got a rash, you should think back to what it was
    and remove it from the diet and see if the rash will disappear.
    It can also manifest itself with scaly plaques on the scalp.
    However, you can almost be certain your baby’s skin will develop a rash before
    the age of 1. It’s an X-linked dominantly inherited condition caused by mutations in a gene known as
    NEMO. No one is entirely sure what causes this
    condition and treatment is very simple. Also it protects the skin from the influence of the
    ultraviolet rays, keeps the perfect balance of the moisture, and finally ‘
    makes the skin younger and softer. There are many more symptoms such as retinal detachment, but their number and extent vary
    from person to person. Third, which is probably the worst one, is the generalized pattern wherein the depigmentation occurs in different areas of
    the body. Now, you will should make sure your surrounding is allergen free.
    Simply apply a little baby oil to the affected are and gently brush away the scales with a soft baby brush.
    But unfortunately that happens all too often especially with teens and singles who are trying to compete
    with others who have flawless skin. The most
    common reason babies are afflicted with this condition is because their genital area
    isn’t kept as clean and dry as needed. The most important one would
    be finding a doctor who has inept knowledge of vitiligo and will give the patient a
    firm sense of security.
