This past weekend was just about perfect in my book.
On Friday I went to get my pictures developed. The boys and I went garage sale-ing and found several deals. I even found a potato bin that I've wanted and it fits perfectly in the pantry.
On Saturday, I got up early and drove about an hour and 45 min. for the crop (scrapbooking day). It was from 9 am to 7 pm. I got to see Sonya, Jamie, Cheryl, and Charity. We enjoyed yummy food all day. There were donuts, fruit, chocolate, desserts, and a yummy Hawaiian chicken over rice with pineapple, coconut, cherries, and celery for lunch. For supper there were grilled burgers and hot dogs, chips, and more of the yummy desserts. During the day we had a lot of fun talking and scrapping. I got all of the pictures into Isaiah's album of his first year. Now I just need to add stickers and journaling. They also had a guy there who gave free 10 minute massages and that was nice.
After the crop, the five of us went out for ice cream and then shopping at the Dollar Tree. It was a lot of fun. It's not very often that I laugh like I did that day/night. Then Charity and I went back to her house and scrapped a little bit more before I finally gave into exhaustion and fell asleep on her couch.
I slept in till 9:30 which may be the best part of the weekend! When I woke up, I had some yummy bread that Jacob had made. Then we talked and I played a game with Jacob. It was nice to do something with him and not have to worry about someone asking me for something or interrupting. For lunch we went to Sonic (yum) and then Charity and I went to the Half Price Bookstore. Oh my! That is like taking a recovering alcoholic into a bar. (Except that I've never been sober.) Thankfully Tim has my credit cards and I was limited in what I could purchase. We went back to Charity's and I packed up my things and left. I got home around 6:30 pm. The great thing I found when I got home was that all the dishes were done and the floor had been swept!
It just doesn't get much better than this weekend. Although, last Sunday, was pretty great too!
