Weekend Recap

This weekend was one of the best I've had since the hubby has been gone...and I owe it all to my wonderful family (minus the baby sister...she's too busy learning how to be heart surgeon). Saturday I got my hair cut, and on my way there I stopped at a world famous bakery (famous in a small town sort of way) to get some fattening breakfast. Girl has to eat...and man was it delicious!

After my hair cut I went home to get the baby (Kali) and headed to my parents for dinner. My middle sister has literally every kitchen gadget designed and I made her show me how to make "pop" with one of her toys. In the midst of her amazing me with technology, she reminded me that I announced to the blogging world that I was trying to give up pop, but I don't classify this as pop so it was okay...I think?

My mom has a bad case of collecting scrapbook stuff, so I had a plan to swipe a few things for decorating care packages to send the hubby. She has a scrapbook room filled with anything and everything scrapbook you can imagine!

Moms scrapbook room (my baby sister organized it...she would never let me forget it if I gave my mom credit for the organization. I got your back B :))

Every bin is a different scrapbook my mom is working on...serious scrapbooker! She's part of a scrapbooker gang club (it's funny to think if 50-something ladies huddled around a table comparing pages they designed and gossiping about the world) called the Gems. Cute huh :)

Now if only I could organize the care package room like my moms room!

I got some pretty sweet stuff to decorate boxes, and the best part is I didn't have to pay a dime, just spend some time bonding with the family. Don't mind if I do! :) We watched a movie and by the time it was over I was too lazy tired to drive home, so I had a sleepover and stayed up too late watching Sabrina the Teenage Witch with my sister. Love that show!

My parents and I have a date with McDonalds every Sunday in the summer so we drove the 15 minute drive to the nearest one and celebrated the coming of summer (early I know) and had our usual, hot cakes and pop (yes, I had a pop...oops). It was nice to just talk with my parents and have someone to spend my weekend with. Always cherish the little moments in life!

Overall, it was a fabulous weekend...and I didn't spend it sitting in front of a computer all weekend! I hope you all had a great weekend, oh and happy Monday :)
