The day started with a(nother) trip to Michael's for a few more beading essentials...including an earring-making book!
So far, I've only made one pair of earrings. I need to purchase some thicker metal wire, because there are TONS of cute ideas that require a thicker, bendable wire.
Here's my first pair!

and a necklace!

|so much fun to be had!|
At 5:00pm, Ben and I met up with a few couples at Sweet Tomatoes, a delicious salad bar restaurant. I had a Hugh Jass salad, including sweet and dill pickles, BEETS, blue cheese, green peppers, olives, tomatoes, and cucumbers. I also had a small slice of cornbread, a few bites of macaroni and cheese, and a yummy glass of iced berry green tea. It was a fun dinner!
Tomorrow we're having a surprise breakfast for a staff member that is leaving us this year, and I was one of two teachers in charge of fruit. We stopped at Harris Teeter on the way home from dinner, and got GREAT deals on fruit. Check my MASSIVE bowl of berries!
|that's a berry parfait! strawbs, bluebs, raspbs, strawbs. :)|
|just give me a fork, and I'm ALL SET.|
|apple + bracelet for our E.C. assistant!|
|I don't want to talk about the wrap job... apples + lanyards!|
