(p.s. this is long...sorry)
I'm sure most of you saw me write something last week about us heading to the Frio River out in West Texas. We go with a lot of people and were totally psyched to go. Well I sent T to the store on Thursday to get everything we were asked to bring. While he was there he called to verify everything. The lady he called didn't understand why he was buying everything so early. Well apparently the river weekend is a different weekend than the one it's been the last 4 years and no one bothered to tell us. Everyone "assumed" we knew. Thanks.
Do you know how much it sucks to anticipate a vacation and a half day on Friday only to find out on Thursday that you're one week ahead of schedule? No? Well it sucks.
SOooo needless to say we did not go to the Frio River this weekend and I switched my half day of vacation to this Friday. Ugh, and people in our group got word and kept calling us all weekend to see how the "river was." Awesome.
ANYWAY...Friday we didn't end up doing much other than watching Bride wars. It was cute. Saturday we slept in, got up and went crazy cleaning on the house! By noon on Saturday my house was spotless!! That's a pretty cool feeling! I even got out the carpet spot cleaner so by saying spotless...I really mean spotless! Hubby watched TV and I played in my craft room. I made a bunch of earrings and a necklace as well as Father's Day cards. A friend came over to discuss our future Etsy store - Yep, I think we may just do it...stay tuned!
Sunday we realized our house was clean and there wasn't enough laundry to make a full load and that we weren't going grocery shopping since we were going on vacation this weekend...therefore we really had nothing to do!! We went to the local cheapy theater to see The Proposal. So cute and SOOO funny! I was so nerdy...We went to the cheapy place because it's $2.50 a person for a matinee. So we get in for $5. Then I made us each a baggy of kettle corn and put it in my purse. We bought a large coke to split for $4.25 at the concession stand so we literally went to the movies for $9.25! Ha! What a bargain.
Then my friend called and was giving away her old scrapbook shelf. It's a really nice one from Ikea. So we went and picked that up and put it in my scrapbook room!! It looks soooo good and it really helped to organize all my craft stuff since I can't just choose one hobby. I have to have several. So you want to know how anal I am? I got out all...ALL my scrapbook paper and organized it. Paper Pads got grouped together. Then paper that came in it's own box stayed in those boxes. All my non-cut 12x12 paper went in one storage container. All my paper that's been cut, but is still in large chunks or halves went in another tupperware. All the paper that has Cricut cut outs went into one of those clear 12x12 envelopes. All my small scraps - long and skinny strips, squares, etc went into a different envelope. All pre-cut cricut cutouts went into one as well. So now thanks to my ocd, all my paper is neatly organized. Ha!
We took my parents to dinner Sunday night for Father's Day. It was fun to hang out with them and actually treat them to dinner for once! We've never been able to do that. I felt pretty grown up. So yup that was our weekend. Now to look forward to the river...all over again.
Oh wait! Did you really think I would neglect to show you my homemade goodness from the weekend? Ha! Ok here you go...you've waited long enough...
