Trying to update

This weekend was one of the best I've had since this Summer!! My BFF Michelle and I went on a scrapbook getaway with a few other fabulous and talented ladies.

The weekend started Friday night when Michael and I dropped Wesley and Lani off at his sisters for a sleepover. We decided to celebrate my birthday a few days early since we had a sitter. Michelle, her husband Dan and a few of their friends met at a restaurant in Manchester called Unwined. There was a live jazz band, a crazy amount of wine, and the best chocolate fondue ever! We actually dipped rice krispy treats!! How delicious is that? It was an awesome birthday dinner!!

On Saturday Michael headed to work while I headed out to meet Michelle for our trip up to Saco, Maine. We spent Saturday and most of Sunday in a hotel scrapbooking and creating! I had no intention of making my Christmas cards, but the Stampin' Up! demonstrator who put this all together brought some of her holiday stamps and I took full advantage of that. I am not going to post photos yet since some of my readers will be getting cards from me. (Let me know if you are interested in swapping)

I also was able to get 2 whole pages done, LOL:) Two adorable pages from Lani's 2nd birthday!! Those I will post when I can find my USB cord for my camera. I fell in love with a new to me product named "Stickles". It's kind of like a glitter glue! I used it on all of my Christmas cards and on my scrapbook pages. We stopped at an awesome scrapbook store on the way home so I stocked up on a few colors.

This past weekend was such a huge success that Tara is having another one in March for TWO nights this time. Michelle and I are so there!! Let me know if you are local and interested in going. Our one night stay was only $88 and it included the hotel room, dinner, breakfast, dessert buffet, $25 worth of Stampin' Up! products, and many raffles! Totally worth it. I know the one in March will be more becuase of the extra night.

Right now I am just trying to get caught up on things around here. Oh, I also taught myself how to knit so I have been playing around with that. My hands are super achy, but I am having fun:) On Friday I am going to a crop at my favorite scrapbook store for FREE because Thursday is my 31st birthday. I feel kind of bad about going, but I couldn't let my FREE month pass. I really owe Michael. He rocks!!!

Your birthday night out sounds fantastic!

I want a christmas card, although I have to warn you that at this point I am still very uninspired and not sure what I am doing yet for a christmas card or newsletter or whatever. Too many balls up in the air to make any decisions yet. So I might be a slacker, although I am sure I will get SOMETHING in the mail even if it ends up being a new years card!

It sounds like you had a great weekend. The scrapbooking night out sounds fantastic. I would love to do that, but I think Paul would kill me if I left him with the 4 kids all weekend long :) Take care and have fun catching up!!
