A Saturday for Mom

So what did you do today??

Ooooh, pick me, pick me, pick me...

I went to a scrapbook convention!!! I don't know if it is the smell of ink in the air, or what, but that place was rockinly cool. And thanks to Daddio, it was just a girls day... my Mom and I... spent the better part of the day walking, scoping out, and calculating what we needed the most (well, lets face it, we NEEDED everything... but what could we actually have is a totally different story).

I walked away with a pretty sweet bag of loot! And of course moments after the boys were put to bed I broke that stuff out... (I'm currently taking a short break... to look up one of the vendors online to figure out what else I need from them).

My gift in return to Daddio... he is going to the Motor Speedway with a friend to catch an IndyCar Race for the evening.

Give and take... that's what marriage is all about, baby!

...and are you going to let us peek in this sweet bag of loot? Hmmmmm?

Normally I would post a pic of all the cool stuff I got... unfortunately Daddio broke the camera while in Cali. at the beginning of the week... so no new pictures right now (we sent it off to get fixed). Maybe I will link to the products... we'll see :-).

Lucky you. I don't scrapbook, so I would be miserable, but I can appreciate the idea. :) You know, there are scrapbooking retreats! That's right, you can go for an entire weekend and scrapbook to your heart's content (they do sell stuff). You should talk to our friend that cuts hair for more info. :)

Yes, I know about the scrapin' weekends... but that's really not my cup of tea. I enjoy doing it in the comfort of my own home, and to come and go from it when I please. Sometimes my attention span for it is somewhat short if I'm feeling uninspired... oh, and I'm not real good at sharing... it's a fault :-).
