{weekend round-up & a small CT call}

Hello my friends.  How its going!?  How was your weekend?  Mine was great!  We had just the right balance of productivity and relaxing.  


Saturday we went to our nephew's last little league game.  He did great and its so fun to cheer him on!



After that we had a yummy lunch at the Hot Dog King. Josh had been there before, but I hadn't so he showed me the ropes. It was sooo yummy. It will not be our last visit to the Hot Dog King.

The new Saturday Special was posted and its a FUN ONE!!! The challenge is to do a makeover of one of you older LOs that you might not be as happy with anymore. I have PLENTY of those LOs that need makeovers! This is the LO as I originally scrapped it:



Could it be more random?! There's no flow, no plan, just scattered junk. Blech.

And here is the made-over LO, which I am 100% more happy with.

I took lot of time to scrap this weekend. Sometimes I just have to take a break from "work" and just scrap. It felt GREAT.

SEE! I told ya I scrapped a LOT! haha

On Sunday we went to our usual dinner at my parents' house.  There was trampoline jumping, baseball game watching, and of course we always watch America's Funniest Home Videos and laugh and laugh!



We celebrated Josh's birthday with presents, cake and ice cream since my family hadn't had a chance to give him their presents yet.




Ok - so the last "little" bit of business. . .

My CT Call. Yes, its true. I'm FINALLY doing a CT call. It's my first and I'm keeping it small, short and sweet. My blog is the only place I'm posting it. And its only open for a week. I'm not looking for a HUGE team.

The reason I've been putting off my CT call for so long is that I'm a big chicken!! I REALLY don't want to turn anyone down. I've been rejected myself from MANY CT calls, so I know how that feels. And I just didn't want to put myself in that position. But it's just a necessary evil I guess.

On the other hand, I'm SUPER excited to see who applies and to get my Britt Girls all lined up!  
OK - long enough post for ya?! Sheesh! SORRY folks. I'll sign off now!! :) Have a good one.
