Fun Filled Weekend

Hi lovely peeps! How was your long weekend? I started mine early, by leaving work early on Friday to pick up Laurel Beard who is in town for a few days. We went to check out the Archivers, where we met up with Gretchen and then because she's not feeling well, I took her back to my place so she can chill out. That whole afternoon, Laurel was nauseous due to her migraine med side effect and we basically drove around with her holding a plastic bag, which thankfully she didn't have to use. :) 

The next day, I spent the morning at the dog park with hubby and Eli the puppy. It's just so much fun watching him trying to keep up with the big boys. In the afternoon I went up to north Houston again  to pick Laurel up, this time for some pampering time. We got a pedicure with matching colors. Yes, we are cheesy like that! :) I seriously, just love having her around. She's so bubbly and she makes me laugh continuously with her no nonsense respond. And, her hubby, just as nice as can be. 

Here's a couple pics from our weekend.

Laurel finally get to meet Eli.

My favorite pic. No, I wasn't being camera shy, but the camera was
about an inch away from my face and that's just way too close. :)

Sunday, totally chillin' out day. Picked up some flowers from Home Depot and hubby panted some colorful flowers & started a little veggies garden on our backyard. I don't have green thumb at all, so I am leaving the gardening stuff to hubby who enjoys doing those kind of stuff. Monday, went to see Man In Black 3. Missed Frank the pug, but if you see the movie, you'll see a few reference to Frank. And... I want the pug puppy poster just like on J's house. Yes, I am a bit obsessed with pug. Ha.. :)

Then my girlfriend came over in the afternoon with her sweet toddler, Mia. Let just say, Mia and Eli enjoy each other company. They played non-stop all afternoon. As I typed this, Eli is totally crashing on the pillow, snoring softly  now & then.

Of course, I made some cards, too. Quite a few actually. And, one of the card is this fish ribbon card, which is my last entry for Paper Crafts 2012 Gallery Idol. And, I know right away that for the encouragement sentiment I want to use the mantra "just keep swimming" from Finding Nemo. It is one that I often repeat to myself when things get a bit rough. 

I partially embossed the top part of the panel and added American Crafts glitter POW paper behind the fish.

I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend and yay... for short work week!!
