It seems like it was ages ago that I posted about my flat tire!!
What have I been up to? Hmmm, let me retrace my weekend…
We had a wonderful Talent Show at my afternoon school on Friday. Several of the acts were the typical groups of little girls who make up a dance with just a couple of moves that get repeated over and over…anyone know that popular dance song, "let me see your 1-2 step"?? Well apparently that is the most popular song out there for little girls to dance to because we had not one, not two but FOUR acts singing or dancing to that same song!! I honestly think the girls get more out of coordinating their matching outfits than they do the dancing. We had a couple of students playing the piano that were actually VERY talented. That was what it is all about, in my opinion. Chances are that next year I will be the person in charge of the Talent Show…my standards will be much higher and less acts will be chosen!! If you had seen the quality of some of the acts, you would know that I am not being mean, just honest. The kids really seem to feel so proud of themselves, that this year's coordinator had a hard time saying NO to any of those who tried out! Higher standards are a good thing in my opinion!
After work on Friday I met my friends Lori and Ra at Champps. We ordered a giant thing of chicken nachos and it was so big that the three of us ate that and had no room left to eat dinner!!
Of course the giant sundae that Ra ordered put us over the edge! These girls are so much fun…we spent two weeks together in Connecticut a few years ago for work and we have discussed going on another trip together sometime. That would be really fun!
After dinner with these ladies I went to Cassie's house to hang out with her for awhile. Her daughter is getting so big and smart! I just love Johnnessa to death and love visiting…I don't do it often enough. I hope to see more of them both this summer. As sweet as Johnnessa is, Cassie needed a break from her motherly duties so we ended up leaving and going to my house to hang out for awhile…
I lazed around for a good part of the day, finished reading Shopaholic Ties the Knot, and then went to hang out with Jenny for some female companionship. We both needed some"girl time" to discuss relationships, work, etc. Her new apartment is totally organized and looking great in the week since we got her moved in. She got me the best lotions and soaps as a thank-you for helping her with the move. Jenny is so sweet and thoughtful! We walked to Bonfire for dinner, which is just a block away from her apartment. Loved it!! I had the chicken ravioli with artichokes and it was delicious. Can't wait to go back there with another group of friends sometime soon. Anyone down to join me???
I watched part of the Miami vs Detroit game, but Miami was getting spanked, so I decided to watch The Aviator. Very good movie!! Long, but it was entertaining for the most part….
I started scrappin' a little bit this morning…I haven't been real motivated in that area this past week. Around noon I went to my friend Shannon's house for lunch with her and Kara and Gina. It was sunny out so we were able to sit outside for awhile and watch the kids play. I will be going out with these girls again next weekend for Kara's birthday. That will be a riot!! Stay tuned for that post and those pictures!!
When I got home later I sat on the deck and started a new mystery by Patricia Cornwell. Tried to get tan but the clouds started rolling in and we actually had a tornado warning and sirens going off…not much rain actually fell at our house, so I went out and decided to brave it for some dinner.
I spent the rest of the evening putting these two scrapbook layouts together:
