So much going on....

Yes, it's hard to believe that there is so much going on!

This past week I was in Austin at the Scrapbook Exp working for Fiber Scraps! I had a GREAT Time meeting new friends, reconnecting with old friends and just showing everyone what they can do with the Fiber Scraps Walnut Ink Tintz. I love working the booth because, well, it's sort of like I get to play all day!!! Don't get me wrong, it's a LOT of work! Especially building the gridwall, setting up the booth and all. But it's also a LOT of fun because people from last year have come by just to say "hi" to me. Patricia would be so proud of me!

The first day of setting up is always the hardest, okay it runs a close second to the last day when we have to tear down. But after we were done setting up we went out to dinner to Threadgill's. Patricia and I went there last year so that she could try the Fried Green Tomatoes...she even let me try them! This year I ordered them for myself! And they were just as yummy!

The next night was Thursday and anyone who knows me knows what I do on Thursday nights. I watch my tv shows (Ugly Betty, Grey's Anatomy and October Road). So I had take out chinese food and watched tv all night long..finally took a shower around 10:00 right at the beginning of October Road.

Friday night I was able to go out for dinner with my friend Kara! I was glad that I go to see her again! She is just the bestest! We went to Pappadeaux which really is a treat for me since Simon (my dh) doesn't really like seafood. We split the Crawfish Appetizer and the Stuffed Shrimp. Kara kept saying that she was going to have desert, but when time came around did she have room? nope.

After dinner Kara and I went and visited a scrapbook store. It was nice to be able to get out and see something in Austin. We drove to the store and walked around and guess what I bought? nothing, which would really make my husband happy to hear! (lol) But he doesn't know about that new bag that I bought at the Expo either....

After we finished visiting the scrapbook store we went to Starbucks and I was able to get a Vente' White Mocha...at a price that was right! The coffees at the Expo were $4.75 apiece....and that was for a tall! This one was $4.25. Which was better!

I drove home from Austin on Sunday and was greeted by NOONE being home! So i unpacked, jumped in the shower and got on the computer to check out all the messages that were waiting for me...I'm still going through them. I'm afraid to do a massive delete because I might get rid of something that is important....like a gift certificate code (which I also deleted tonight by mistake...)

The week is almost halfway over and there is SO much going on! On Friday I'm going to an all day crop at Recollections, since I can't go scrapbook on Saturday...why can't you go on Saturday? Well....I'm going to go see Gwen Stefani!!!! I am SO excited about this! Dh and I are bringing Sarah to her first concert this weekend and she DOESN'T EVEN KNOW!!! For Easter this year Sarah got the "Sweet Escape" CD in her basket and she opened it up and found the concert dates that GS would be doing...and Dallas was listed as May 5. Of course we as scrapbookers know that May 5 is National Scrapbooking Day...so I told Sarah that we couldn't go to the concert because of that! But what she doesn't know is that SHE will be at THE concert! We aren't telling her until we arrive! I can't wait!!! I have to take a picture of this!!!

Then on Sunday I am taking two classes with Tim Holtz!!!! See I told you I was a busy girl this weekend!!! I'm just wondering, when I'm going to sleep?

And I do have other news too....I am now a PINK LADY over at Scraptalk.com. I was tearing down the booth at the Expo on Saturday and got the call! So I'm super excited about that!

I've also had a lot of other things on my mind lately, some have gotten me down, but thanks to the support of good friends everything is going to be A.O.K.

Tomorrow I'm going to post the frame that I made in a class a few weeks ago...it's has my wedding picture in it...Right now it's sitting on my desk and I can see my husband and myself smiling....and it's just making me smile.

Goodnight.
