For those of you that follow my blog, you know that I am working on a scrapbook. I have been working on it on and off since about May. I originally got all the photos at the end of January, but had a really rough Spring health wise and didn't really start digging into it until the end of May. At that time I gave myself a deadline of Oct 16th. That will be Lindsey and Matt's one year anniversary. It is an engagement/bridal/and wedding scrapbook. I work best with a deadline - if you tell me no rush, you better mean it! With the deadline looming I have kicked it into overdrive....at least I did last weekend.
Friday afternoon I rushed home and fed our crazy cat and packed up all my scrapping supplies and headed off to a friend's house to scrap. She is one of the most creative ladies I know and can most always help me if I am stuck on a particular page - which I most definitely was. I got past that block and moved on. Before I knew it I looked up at the clock and is was 11 PM.
Saturday morning I had a million errands to run and the day was culminating with a girlfriend's 40th birthday celebration in Dallas. Melinda is one of my friend's from Louisiana and Denise is her best friend whom I used to work with at Pavestone. I have blogged about them before, but they are truly awesome ladies that I am blessed to call friends! We started the evening out at the bar at their hotel....

Sunday morning, brought another day of scrapping. I was determined to be productive and arrived at another friend's house around 10 AM.....we ended up working on our books until almost 8 PM.

I ended up driving home in an insane storm - hail, strong winds on sideways rain. To say I was frazzled when I arrived home would be an understatement. So to recap....an incredibly packed weekend where no domestic chores were accomplished not the least of which was laundry and I pretty much had to play catch up all week with grocery shopping, picking up around the apartment and washing clothes.
This weekend was much easier to handle.....got the grocery shopping done early on Saturday, Zachary had a soccer game in the afternoon and that was pretty much all that HAD to be done. So with my pillow loudly beckoning....my kitchen is clean from a home cooked spaghetti dinner, lunches are packed and my project from work that has been in the works for what seems like forever is complete and has been emailed. Didn't make much progress on the scrapbook, but I am still determined to make my deadline....I am 27 pages in and I am not giving up!
