I Am Tired!

What a wonderful weekend!

On Friday mid-morning Matt, Debbie, the kids, and I went to the Greek Food Festival in Little Rock. Oh yummy! Unfortunately, I can't eat baklava, and the yummy pastry that Karon told me about was not available this year. But I did stuff myself full of gyros, pastitsia, hummus and pitas, and another yummy spinach-stuffed pastry that I can't spell the name of.

Then I ran home and picked up the food I had made for our friends Mark and Stefanie, and took it up to the hospital. I cuddled the new baby while Mark and Stef ate. Then I took lots of pictures. Here are a few of the best. I'm looking forward to a photo shoot with the baby in their home in a month or so!

After I left the hospital, I swung by Sonic and grabbed a giant cherry limeade before heading out to my scrapbook retreat. I'll spare you the details of the weekend. I just scrapbooked until 2:30 a.m., then lay in my bed talking with my roomie, Stephanie, until 3:15. A severe thunderstorm rolled in at that point, and Steph and I pulled back the curtains, turned around so our heads were at the foot of our beds, and watched the storm until 3:45. Then we went to sleep. We had breakfast at 8, then scrapbooked until 6 p.m. I got 40 pages (20 layouts) done, journaling in all! Maybe later this week I'll scan a few and post them.

Now I'm home, and I'm VERY tired. I'm thinking about taking a nap before community group at 6. Yes, I think I'll go do that now! Happy rest of the weekend!

Oh yes, my blogger friend Sarah Mae is have awesome giveaways at her blog for the next few days. Check it out! Who knows...maybe you'll win something great!

Your posts about scrapbooking retreats always make me want to start scrapbooking! Then I remember the 1st year book I still haven't finished for my big girl... :) Glad that you had fun!

Nice! This all sounds like nice stuff to get tired doing. I loved the baby pictures - so sweet. I know Kara is only 7 months old, but those pictures made me ache to hold a new born again.
I'm proud of you for being faithful with scrapbooking! I am not faithful with it and its something that bothers me. I want to get the stuff out and start trying again, because my kids would love the memories!

That is an amazing about of pages scrapped in one weekend! When i go with my friends we are lucky if we get done with 10!

Love the baby pictures. Congrats on getting so much scrapping done. I wish I had uninterrupted time to do some but I guess I've lost desire over the past year or so.
