Weekend Adventures

Its been a good weekend...not quite the weekend of nothingness at home that I planned, but good none the less. Here's a little weekend recap.

Friday night we had dinner at Pappadeux, where we enjoyed a really good, but rich dinner. We shared mussels as an appetizer and I had almond crusted trout and a nice glass of wine. Unfortunately, my poor stomach is not used to eating so much rich food, so it wasn't too happy with me during the night and the next morning.

Saturday night went to Michelina's for some Italian food. Another thing I haven't enjoyed in a long time. I decided to be careful about not overdoing it and stressing out my poor stomach, but had a great meal none the less.

Sunday I met up with my mom for pedicures and a little shopping. It was probably the best pedicure I've every gotten. Definitely the best foot massage. We hit World Market just in time for their outdoor sale and I got this fabulous striped umbrella for our courtyard. It matches out trim paint perfectly. I spent the rest of my Sunday doing laundry and scrapbooking. I was working with the June Scrap for a Cure kit. I'm in love with the kit and the Cosmo Cricket goodness inside of it.

Here's one of my pages, this week's Monday Challenge at SFAC. The challenge is to use at least 4 different patterned papers on your page. If you play along, post your creation in the challenge gallery to be eligible for the monthly RAK.

Monday I had intended to spend today in my pj's not leaving the house, cleaning and scrapping. Shawn had other plans. Instead I spent 2.5 hours at the Nissan dealership while Shawn got his new car. He decided on this car in Bitter Chocolate a couple of weeks ago and was just waiting for the dealership where he had worked a deal to get one in for him. He sold his Rx8 on Friday and was not enjoying being car less for the weekend. It's a pretty nice car and really comfortable and roomy on the inside. Plus it gets much better gas mileage than the Rx8 (and will hold a carseat, which is important in my book). He's awfully excited. After the dealership we grabbed a late lunch at BJ's Brewhouse and I headed home while Shawn went to show off his new car (he's showing it off to yet another friend right now in fact). I finished some of the cleaning and the laundry, planted some succulents and did some more scrapping. I just finished my 4th layout with the SFAC kit and my pages for the Scrapgal June gallery. Now I'm ready to go crawl in bed with a book or my knitting and get some rest before a really long day at work tomorrow.

Hope you had an enjoyable weekend.

So, there are still some cars being saled in the US! That cube is cute :-)
I've just made myself a pedicure appointement for next thursday: thank you for reminding me!
I can't reach my toes anymore: the best excuse ever to spend some money at that salon :-))

Sounds like a fun weekend Erin...I love the umbrella, the layout of Nichole, and tell Shawn that the car is unique and I'm sure he's going to have so much fun with it!
