Weekend Recap

Here's some bits of my weekend.

Friday we had a half day because of parent teacher conference week. I had a ton of stuff I should be doing, but decided to have a little fun. Soon after I got home, I finished this page (I actually started it at 7:40 in the morning before leaving for work). It's based on last week's Sunday sketch at SC:


Then I got to work on some valentine garlands. I'd punched a whole ton of scallops and hearts a couple weeks ago with this project in mind:


I may have made 5 of them and still have plenty more to play with



After a bit of paper fun, Shawn and I headed to an evening movie since I was home early. We saw The Rite. Interesting, but not as good as I thought it would be. We headed home after the movie since Shawn's stomach was bothering him and I spent the rest of the night in bed with the laptop and some tv. I'm pretty sure I fell asleep early.

Saturday I should have been working on my grad school paper (that was due today) and cleaning the house, but instead, I spend way too much time looking at CHA related posts online and doing other nonsense. I had a music therapy client around lunch time and wasted a good hour at Super Target after seeing her. Came home and had some more Valentine fun:



Did some laundry and scrapped a page for a challenge at SC. I lifted the fabulous Tina:


And took a bunch of self portrait, mirror shots for another SC challenge that I've yet to get around to. While I was at it, I decided to take a belly shot, since it's been requested by some. This is the best I could do. Don't mind my grumpy looking face, I seriously took about 87 pictures before I got one that was even remotely acceptable. Not the best picture, but you get the idea...a little bump has begun to poke out:


Sunday was spent working on my stupid paper. ALL DAY, 8:30-5, with the exception of switching laundry and making cupcakes for dinner at my parents, was spent writing. It didn't get finished either, which made me grumpy this morning when I woke up and realized a still had a lot of work to do by the end of today. Luckily, I rushed out of work as soon as the kids left and managed to get the paper finished and submitted by 6pm tonight. Phew. I'm usually not a procrastinator and had no idea this paper would take me so long. I usually write pretty quickly. I'll be sure and get back to my plan ahead ways before my next paper. I'm not a fan of unnecessary stress.

Had dinner at my parents last night because this one's hubs was in town on business. It was pretty fun, but I stayed up way too late. That along with the tossing and turning caused by the stress of unfinished work and I'm pretty much ready for bed any minute now. Before I go, here's another page I did last weekend that I never got around to photographing or posting.

Thoughts:
1) Did Jessie steal the garland idea from you or the other way around? Either way - they are so cute!

2) I just did a page with the same E pic except my caption was "patootie." I 'spose we're in agreement.

3) "Bump?" Your "bump" is most people's post-diet goal! But I totally endorse the documentation - you might be glad for it some day.

4) LOVE YOU!

Love all the valentine's goodies and the layouts! You are going to totally be one of those cute skinny pregnant girls with the basketball under her shirt look. ;) I am NOT that girl!
