A Whirlwind Few Days!!

Well, I think I can finally catch my breath!

It started Tuesday on My birthday, my BFF Let came to my house and we scrapped and had a fab sushi lunch!

It was awesome to hang out and celebrate my day ;)

Then Thursday eve my gal pal Shermala from Kansas came down to visit for the convention. I picked her up about 10 pm or so and we stayed up LATE and visited and then hit the hay for the convention the next day. We got up early drove to the convention, got our tickets and got in line for the early entry vendor fair.

Wasn't too impressed with the goods offered except for the dollar scrapbooking booth, did some damage there ;)

Had a couple of classes and acrylic one that was way to simple and not worth the price, didn't learn anything.

2nd was a card class put on by Devine Memories, the cards were very cute.

3rd class was a princess acrylic album, better class..but the instructor grated on my nerves!

I did learn a few interesting tidbits.

Good news was that I won a $15.00 gift certificate for a vendor at the convention from the daily drawings, I haven't won in 4 years that I have been going there.

Went to a Late nighter crop at friend Donna was also there and brought cute name tags for my spot and some cute balloons, and an awesome tasting carro a?!! Thanks Donna! I didn't get much done, I was soooo tired!

Once again we stayed up late and got up early to head up to Payson to start the shop hop...we had TONS of fun, did some monetary damage and stopped at 7 stores all over the valley.

Then we did ANOTHER late nighter! Holy cow we were WHOOPED! WE hung out until 10:15 or so, then headed home to start the shop thing again today.

When we got back to the house Shermala had the HUGE task of trying to get her massive amount of purchases into her empty suitcase and not exceed the weight. go girl!

She accomplished that task and then we hit 2 more stores today..LOL, and yes she bought more stuff! and she managed to get it in the suitcases...

Took her to the airport at 4:45pm and I already miss her...See you in Sept girl!

Oh I'm sorry I didn't say Happy Birthday... I didn't know! But I hope it was a fabulous You-Day.

And Tammy, thanks for thinking of me. It helps so much to know that there are those out there pushing for me to succeed. It's a day at a time process, but I am being strong and keeping my head up the best I can. I know I will be okay! A solo roadtrip actually sounds like fun, now that you mention it. Maybe I'll hit up a weekend trip to Sedona or something. Lol! :0)
