A Bit of This and That

Happy Monday, Peeps!  Let me just say that I had EVERY intention of doing a post yesterday….I really did.  With that being said, I truly got lost in the blogosphere yesterday.  I was determined to get caught up on my “regular reads”.  I get downright cranky when I don’t get my fix, and that seems to be happening more and more frequently.  Anyway, as I was reading through my blog roll, I kept getting distracted….a lot of my regular reads do monthly sponsors, or after reading a post, I would get sidetracked on one of THEIR blog rolls….A.D.D. much?????   Needless to say, I have a few new blogs on my roll, time got away from me and before I knew it, it was way past my bedtime.

Enough of that….I had a pretty good and semi productive weekend.  Friday night Zachary and I enjoyed dinner al fresco at my parents.  They have a beautiful patio and the weather was perfect!  Friday night and Saturday morning I worked on handmade note cards for my blog giveaways. 
Two of the three cards plus the front of a gift box

Homemade gft wrap and top of the gift boc
As I'm sure you know by now....none of my projects are complete without a little help from this guy
Yeah, I know that giveaway closed like two weeks ago.  What can I say…I may have been a little over ambitious when I decided to do that smack in the middle of finishing a huge scrapbook and going on vacation.  I also had some shipping issues which were no fault of my own.  For the ladies that are waiting on their goodies…never fear….everything got done, packaged up and delivered to the post office Saturday morning….they are on their way PRIORITY MAIL.  Thank you again for your patience!
Sunday, got off to a slow start.  Zachary had a friend spend the night and they stayed up WAY too late.  We ended up at brunch at Cracker Barrel….YUMM!!!  Right after lunch time, we (one of us rather unwillingly) kicked it into high gear and started tackling tidying up Zachary’s closet.  We managed to get rid of a whole bag of unwanted “stuff”.  We also recycled a ton of books and CDs with Half Price books.  The return compared to what we dropped off was miniscule, but I felt good that someone else will get use out of them as opposed to just trashing them - not to mention all the space it freed up for me.  In case you are wondering, I am on a huge “clean and organize” kick.  There is a small chance that I will move midsummer, but more likely it will be next year and I refuse to once again move a bunch of stuff that I have no intention of ever using or needing again.  I have done this too many times to count and I don’t want to fall victim to it yet again.  It is definitely a work in progress, but as they say “slow and steady wins the race”.  Next weekend I will be tackling my own closet and believe me…it could monopolize the entire weekend – no joke.  Maybe I will be brave and share a “before and after”. *****CRINGING*****
Have a great week!
