Sandi, love the quilt & the rack!

Lisa, love Harry!

Andrew, love that your father's getting better and am jealous of the Portuguese food!

As for us, we spent Friday night and Saturday morning prepping (except for the bit where I had to go to work Saturday morning to meet with clients) and running around like lunatics, because Saturday afternoon & night was our 4th annual Mardi Gras in June party.

We had a slew of people over for crawfish boil, etouffee, pecan pie, cake, and cake pops.  It was a blast.









Everyone had a blast.  My friend pulled out her face painting kit and painted the kids.  And we supplied balls, bubbles, and sidewalk chalk, the best things ever for a party with kids at a house with no children in residence.

Today we got up late, then went to where my parents were running a moving sale (my mom has a consignment shop of knicknacks and antiques and such, and as a corollary to that she runs estate and moving sales) and gave my dad his Father's Day card.  As a gift, my sister and I had sent my parents to a Doo Wop concert in NYC Saturday night.  We ended up getting an Oriental rug and an awesome freakin' table at the sale.

Then we popped over by my sister and brother-in-law, who lived near the sale location, and gave my BIL his Father's Day card too.  Hung out with them and my nephew for a while, then headed home to eat leftover crawfish for lunch/dinner, clean up the remainder of the party, watch some movies on TV, and go through wedding photos.

Yes, we got married 2 years ago, but we haven't done an album yet.  We finally had the 1,000+ photos narrowed down to 185, to be further narrowed to about 120 for the album, the chosen ones all saved on Eric's laptop... and his laptop got stolen a couple weeks ago.

Yeah.

So we started going through again tonight, and got it mostly finished.  We'll do the rest tomorrow.  Sucks that we had to do it again, but we still had the choices somewhat in our heads, so it's going faster this time.

Court tomorrow.  Of course.

Oh, and this is the stuff we got from the sale today.





Sorry they're not the best photos.  Just snapped 'em quickly to be able to post.

I'm pretty sure my parents had a rug like that when we lived in Florida!  Weird!

Sandi your dolls look great on those stands!

Saturday we spent the afternoon outside playing in water with the kids (don't ever race a 1 1 /2 year old through the sprinkler; you will spend unnecessary time right in front of it ;D ) and made Chicago dogs



Yesterday we went to a friend's baby's baptism and then had lunch AND dinner over there!

Today I have to do all the things I skipped over the weekend, like folding laundry :D

Such exciting lives everyone leads! The crawfish and the hot dogs look amazing!

We had a normal running around like chickens weekend - lots of kid's activities - nice lunch at my sister's for father's day. Lots of rain here- I would love to see the sun.

I'm going to try and get more stuff listed in my hafshop over the next few days because I'm not going to have a lot of internet this summer - sucks!

I'm so sorry.  Prayers for your family.


We had the typical running weekend where it was over before it started.  This morning I made it to the gym and then took Nathaniel on a long bike ride to get Iced hot chocolate smoothies for breakfast.  For a few minutes it felt like summer!  Tomorrow I am off to my summer job at my friends deli and getting ready for our annual 5 day camping trip next week in addition to a batch of special orders that need to get done before we leave!

Today was court and more court.  2 hours this morning, just waiting for an adjournment, which is ridiculous.  Tonight I'm hoping to finish going through wedding photos, then list more in the HAFshop.  I listed a couple more things last night, plus figured out how to create shop categories and edited everything into them.

As for everyone else and all that awesome stuff going on-whew! My fav though is the Chicago dogs. What can I say-lived there for nearly 20 years.

Thanks for the prayers!
Today I am getting my last wisdom tooth pulled... does this mean I will be less wise?  :P

Well I've had all 4 out, so what would that say about me?  On second thought, don't answer that.

Right now, I'm in court waiting for my case to be called.

Tonight, Eric and I are going shopping for some aquarium supplies and then to Bed, Bath and Beyond to shop for a bridal shower gift for our friend whose shower is this Sunday. 

Got through most of the remaining wedding photos last night, but we'll do the last of it tonight after all the shopping.
