I had a successful evening last night. I have been SUPER busy and have barely had any down time, so usually when I have a free night after work (which isn't often) I like to enjoy grabbing takeout, vegging on the couch and do nothing but watch some shows on my DVR.

Last night I had nothing planned and Mr. Pickle had to work late. I felt bad that he wasn't due home until 9 and was to leave for a bachelor party first thing this morning so I offered to help him by packing his clothes. I just laid out the clothes I assumed he would want to take with him so when he got home he could throw them in his suitcase or opt for another option. (I know, I should win the wife of the year award!!!)

We had planned our dinner menu (for Mr. Pickle to make, since I am not a good cook), but I ended up making the dinner by myself (and the help of google). I made corn on the cob, mashed potatoes and flank steak. The fact that I had to google how to make corn on the cob and mashed potatoes should be a big hint that I am not comfortable in the kitchen. However, I am pleased to say the dinner was tasty and we didn't get sick from eating it!!!

After I cooked and ate dinner, I cleaned up the big mess I made while cooking (reason one why I am not a fan of cleaning is the clean up afterwards) and then tackled a sewing project. I have been wanting to make my friend/co-worker a camera strap cover for her Nikon camera that she uses for her camera (she is a photographer too). I decided last night (a few days after her birthday) was the time to get it done. I used some cute retro fabric, followed this tutorial and made my first camera strap cover. I was happy with the results and can't wait to make myself one!

After all that, I was ready to relax with the dogs while watching the Biggest Loser finale.

Just wanted to toot my own horn for being so productive :)
