I had a wonderful weekend!

I have so much to tell you! Like... Lots... So, please, no dozing here.

This weekend my Mom decided to take a "mini" vacation to my brother's so he can treat her to fine dining and antiquing. So, I decided to take this opportunity   to take time for myself by hitting a few of my favorite stores and here is what I came home with. Well, some of it anyway, some of it I already ate and some of it is better appreciated if worn.

I just love Hobby Lobby, my heart once did belong to Michael's but then Hobby Lobby arrived and my breath was just taken away... I'm sorry Michael's but Hobby Lobby just has so much more to offer! Can't wait to show you the finished pages of Tessa's scrapbook, adorned with these little beauties

I love this sweater so much. I also bought a pair of fabulous skinny jeans that make ME look skinny. The sweater was originally $48 and the skinny jeans were $38. But because J.C. Penney was having sale, guess how much I paid for them both? $37! That's less than the pair of jeans alone! I am very proud of myself and can't wait for the weather to turn cold.

And since I mentioned scrapbooking earlier...

This is the first page of Tessa's book. The photo was taken by me when she was two weeks old. I also put her "name tag" on here as well. The paper and all the embellishments were given to me by a friend of my Mom's who had bought a BOAT LOAD of craft stuff from a yardsale; from embroidery, to leather working to scrapbooking stuff. I'm really happy with how it came out. Can't wait to work on the other pages!

So how was your weekend? Any good photos you want to share? Just send it in to
