It seems that I have been packing a bag and traveling every weekend for the last few months. Oh wait, I have been. My family has been so busy with events that I have spent about 3-4 weekends alone in my place since November. That's crazy. Although, it hasn't been all terrible. :)
Friday: Before I headed out, Mrs. P came to pick up a birthday cake I made for her stepsister. I wasn't a real big fan of it. It was too black and too boring. Oh well, it was what she wanted. While at my parents' house, I was able to watch chill on the couch with the dogs. Melly had surgery on Tuesday and is supposed to take it easy. There were a couple of times that she needed to be put in her pen for a while because she and Annie were way too active.
Saturday: Dad made on of his delicious breakfasts and we all chilled for a while. Then, I worked on laundry and such and wrapped a couple of baby gifts for a shower that we went to that afternoon. It was a sweet shower and the parents-to-be received a lot of great gifts. We got to see some friends that we don't see very often.
After the shower, my mom and I visited my Grandma for a while and then we went home where Dad had just grilled some fresh pork steaks. Yum! That evening was a really relaxing one. I didn't do too much after dinner. Except watch Family Guy. A lot of it. :)
Sunday: My mom and I ran some errands and hit up a flea market. I have been on the search for a plant stand and a spice rack for a while now. I didn't want to buy a brand new one of each and pay full price when I knew that somewhere out there, the items I were looking for could be found and thrifted. Well, Mom discovered a spice rack hidden under some things and also pointed out a terrific stand. Thanks, Mom! I am so happy to have a plant stand in my living room now. It's got a few shelves on it, so I need to get my pretties and photos organized so that I can fill the shelves. The spice rack is in need of a paint job and I think I have sweet talked my dad into painting that for me this week. :)
And that was my weekend. Did you happen to catch my first two book reviews over the weekend? I am working on writing those so that they can be posted and I can get caught up.
