Spring Break - Review

Wow! What a great week! Let's see how well we stuck to our agenda.

1. Bicycles! 
We bought excellent bikes! It rained for most of the week, so we didn't get to ride everyday like I had hoped. However, we did have several glorious days of sunshine at the end of the week, one of which we spent at the park riding bikes with my sister and nephew. AND! A snake tried to attack me. VERY serious situation. Luckily, I was on a bike and traveling much faster than the serpent. The incident was over within seconds. 
2. Antique store and garage sale shopping
We only made it to one garage sale, but it was a whopper! We got a very cool, old radio/record cabinet. Only $30! It needs a good cleaning and we will eventually put some new wiring to it to make the radio and record player functional. But for now, we will most likely use it as a TV stand.

The same yard sale had several books of fabric samples, like the kind you see at upholstery stores or something. I bought all four books and can't wait to figure out a project for them. Any ideas?

3. Casino!
Yes! I had a very fun night with my mom, her husband and my amazing Granny. Granny made off best with $350 in winnings! Casinos are dangerous, dangerous places.... which I love.

4. Picnic
Hmm. Didn't do this. But there is still plenty of sunshine coming our way.

5. & 6. Hang out with friends
I spent one excellent day crafting and drinking champagne with my sister in Tulsa.
Had time to help out at Raw Intentions and hang with Denise.
Sadly, I did not follow through on Chelsea time, or going to Fayetteville to visit Helen and Lindi. I'm sorry, friends!!! 

7. CrAFts!

I did not work on the giraffe at all. MEhr. BUT! Husband and I did get about halfway done with our summer quilt! It is looking reeeeally cool and I can't wait to show it to you.

8. Cooking!
Hmm. I can't recall cooking once this week. What did I eat??!!

9. Reading booooooks
I read a few pages of a Christopher Moore book. It reminded me of Tom Robbins. I think I will read the rest of it!

10. Maybe a little shopping?
Gap Outlet wins again! I love shopping... and credit cards aren't real money, right? ... whimper...
No, we didn't spend that much actually. I'm pretty proud of my restraint.

Obviously, it was the best week that has ever occurred in the history of the planet. How was yours?


  1. I'm glad you had a good spring break, even though I didn't get to see you. :P

  2. I still love you. And my week brought me one week closer to graduation so I'm pretty stoked about that. I start workin at debzart salon and spa the following week. You'll need to make some time for a facial <3 or maybe a wax ;)

  3. Austin and I have been on a Christopher Moore kick lately. New ones keep appearing in my house lol
