Weekend WrapUp


This weekend was a mixed bag of fun and not-so-fun.

It started on Friday with Elayna's softball game, which was fun. My parents came to the game. The other team didn't have enough players show up, so they technically forfeited but played anyway. Shelbie had a friend spend the night, and Tim had to work.




Saturday began bright and early with another softball game. Elayna's team won this one, and it was a great game! The rest of the day was spent arranging the house. We got a LOT done and it looks great.
Also on Saturday, I received my goodies from ShortMama's Spring Swap. (I would've gotten it earlier but the change of address caused a delay.)

My partner was Amethyst Moon of Life, Music & Laughter.

{a blogging journal, an awesome mug, a martini recipe book, hair clips, Kat Von D perfume, and air fresheners that smelled SO amazing I may or may not have licked one to see if they tasted as good as they smelled.}
{a sewing kit and a bag of assorted truffles...mmm!}
{an adorable tote bag that contained many of the goodies, and a CHOCOLATE cookbook! LOVE!}

{My dog Sasha was very interested in what was going on and stuck herself in the picture!}
Everything was beautifully wrapped until I tore into all of it!

She totally spoiled me, I had to take three pictures just to include all of my gifts, plus I accidentally left one thing out! In addition to all of the pictured items, she also sent a beautiful scarf. I feel like such a lame partner, she totally overdid it! Thank you, Amethyst Moon, I LOVE my gifts!


Sunday....oh Sunday. We had great plans for you, Sunday.
We were going to get up early again, and help my friend with setting up our town's Spring Festival. Then we were going to go to church. Then we were going to attend the Spring Festival. Then we were going to attend our church's baptism service. But instead.....Aunt Flo and her evil henchman, The Migraine, came to visit me. I literally spent the day in bed. And it SUCKED. We missed everything. And once I finally started feeling better, it was time to get ready for work. Yay, Sunday.

Now it's time to kick off another week.
I hope you all have a good one!

Fun, fun, fun, not fun at all! Glad you feel better today, but what a bummer to miss out on a nice full day of activities that you were actually looking forward to doing.

What a grand swap!! Fun stuff. I'm going to go visit your swap partner right now.

Awesome pictures...and looks like you did a lot better in your swap than the one I participated in lol. It's cool that they all played even though they had forfeited...good practice!

Just Breathe said...

It was nice that they still let the kids play the game. Look at all the goodies you got. Wow!
