Best Friend Friday No. 22: Crafty Day

I can't believe it's March already! I'm not complaining at all though; I've been so anxious for Spring to finally get here. The cold and I don't get along well, to say the least.

Anyway, on March 6 Lauren and I spent Best Friend Friday doing crafty things all day long. Yup, that's right, we didn't leave the apartment at all!
Early on in the day, I jumped into working on a project for my art/gallery wall that I started a few days before. I spent several hours (at least it feels that long) gluing tiny triangles onto a piece of paper, and I love the results! I already framed it up and it's ready to get hung up now. Lauren has taken an interest in planners. She bought a super cute gold planner several months ago, and now beautifies it at the beginning of each week. Let's just say we've accumulated quite a supply of pretty post-its, note pads, pens, and washi tape. Apparently a lot of people who share this hobby find a lot of cute decorating supplies in the Target Dollar Spot, but sadly a lot of people pick the bins over and often wipe out all of the Target stores in their entire city. No joke. So, Lauren spent the earlier part of the day making her own paper page flags and water coloring stickers. Who needs Target anyway? That's a joke obviously; I love Target.
The later part of Friday was spent eating pizza (of course!), watching Law and Order: SVU, and working on more crafty projects. This week's pizza was a little different. We decided to go all out and have all white pizza dough this week; man we live on the edge! We topped off this glorious dough with a tiny bit of marinara sauce (because we ran out), a ton of cashew cheese sauce, sauteed spinach, bell peppers, tomatoes, and onion. Even without olives (we ran out of these too), it was delicious!

Usually when we watch TV, we're always multitasking. This usually means we're doing something crafty; something mindless, yet still completely worthwhile. On Friday I continued working on Lauren's belated birthday cowl, and Lauren completed the binding of a quilt. Did I mention that she completely finished the quilt and that it's for me? That's right! I am now the proud owner of a beautiful new handmade quilt and I couldn't be happier! I guess that means I better finish up Lauren's quilt soon though.

Even though we didn't go anywhere exciting or life-altering this Friday we still had fun doing best friend things at home. That's what best friend are, actually. Best friends don't need an elaborate venue or fine dining to enjoy each others' company. Having the time fly by when you're just hanging around your tiny apartment is the very essence of a best friendship. Didn't you know?
