June Blog Extravaganza begins!!!!

Well....June 1st came and went and I didn't blog!!! LOL!!! Oh well...life got in the way yesterday and I'm not sad. We had a great weekend!!! Friday I finally finished unpacking! Yep...all the boxes are empty! My husband has to unpack the garage and I didn't unpack pictures because I'm going to paint before hanging anything up.

Then Friday night I went to a crop!!! WOOHOO...It was great to get out and scrap again. Although, I'm becoming an at home scrapper. I didn't really plan what I was going to do and just didn't have what I needed again. Oh well...it was great to get out and meet some new people. I have a couple layouts to finish from that night.

Then my Dad and MaryLou came for a visit. So...we played pinochle, showed them around town, went out to dinner. Plus...my Dad...his generousity is AMAZING...purchased a yard tractor for us. We have almost an acre to cut and our push mower would not do the job anymore! Thank you DAD!!!!! I love you soo much!

We mad them a big breakfast Sunday morning and then they went to visit MaryLou's brother who lives 20 minutes away in West Liberty! Go figure! When we lived in Atlanta, we lived 30 minutes from her other brother! Small world!

Then we had a spontaneous road trip. We decided to go to the mall. It is in Coralville, about 45 minutes from here. WOW...It felt like we were in civilization again! We spent the day shopping and caught a movie...IRONMAN...Loved it...the movie and the day. I think we just needed a family day of just us not doing anything! I do feel a little recharged after that.

Now...back to life! LOL!!!
