That will make sense in a minute.
Regardless, it was a hectic one... which freaks me out because this is one of my slower weekends for the next 3 weeks. I figure I'm going to collapse at some point. Hopefully after 3 weeks.
Let's see if I can recap this weekend without dragging it out too long or too many pictures... yeah, right. Did you all laugh with me?
Friday, did my grocery thing with the hubs Our Friday tradition. He cracks me up because he's becoming so aware of foods & ingredients now. I mean, Mr. Diva has to have organic pop tarts now. haha. I love that though. High Fructose Corn Sugar - be damned!
I ran over to the little craft store & picked up some stuff for a project I was working on over the weekend... & then we headed to Penn Station for some dinner. Who wants to cook after the grocery?
I got home & finished up knitting some dish clothes that I need to put up at my Etsy store....
& then for some reason, I totally got sucked in the Mama June show ... binged it all. That's almost embarrassing to admit. But it was like a car wreck... you have to look no matter how horrible it seems as you come up to it. I'm still not sure what to think about the whole thing.... but I do have to say, I ended up loving every scene with her trainer in it & he totally made me laugh with his comments & made the show for me.
|This jump rope scene was the FUNNIEST thing I've ever seen in my life|
I ended up not going to bed after midnight getting caught up in this show. Again... the thing you admit in this world on blogs.... #shame
I woke up on Saturday just glad it was supposed to warm up & feel like spring again. Though my allergies aren't happy about it feeling like spring again. Oh mercy.... my head is ready to explode.
Ricky had some work to do in his back garage, so the whole morning, I cranked up some worship music on Spotify & dug into my Bible Journaling. I am so excited about Easter being next week & really wanted to spend some time in my Bible at the start of Holy week.
|If you follow me on Instagram - I did a step by step IG Story on how I did this page|
The artsy bug was in my system at that point & I went ahead & started a project that a precious friend asked me to do. I didnt have any confidence in myself to do this but she gave me the biggest pep talk & told me she knew I could make her something she was wanting to give to her sister for a gift.
I just let the creativity come out & see what happened....
I got so far after waiting paint to dry & needing a paint pen that would make my life so much easier so had to put the rest of the project on halt....
& then decided to take advantage of the warm weather & get in my long run.
Except my long run didnt like me. Or my new shoes didnt like me. Put it that way.
I was supposed to do 8 miles... but I got to a little over 7 miles & I had tears in my eyes. BLISTERS. Sweet baby Jesus.... I forgot how bad blisters felt. I was limping back to my car on the side of my foot. It was awful.
|why do I look like I'm ready for a bootcamp class?|
I still can't fully walk on my foot. I did my foot up good. Needless to say, these shoes wont be back on my feet for any long distances for awhile. There's got to be an easier way to break shoes in.
All I wanted to do was get my shower & get off my feet for the rest of Saturday.... which is exactly what I did.
Sunday, I had to get up early because I was going to be church jumping.
First stop.... I was so excited to go to one of my Joyster's church where she was getting BAPTIZED!!! A lot of my JOY Bible Study friends go to this church so it was just so nice to be at church together with them all. I told someone we need to do church together more often. It was nice to worship with them & take communion & all that good stuff.
But it was just so heart warming to see this precious girl make the decision to take the dunk... & she had her childhood friend in the tank with her helping her come up WASHED CLEAN IN JESUS. I get so emotional at baptism... lest someone I know.
This is the sweet girl that just went on a mission trip last week... spent a week building houses in another country. YEAAAPPPP - God is going to use her in incredible ways!!!
I had to jump in my car & head to my MSM group right afterwards....
& man oh man... I know, I KNOWWWW - I say it every week... but these girls. They are just the best. We had the BEST conversation ... & it was funny how it took a turn from the topic of the day but just what I could tell needed to be talked about. & at the end, we even had a girl ask about getting baptized. Baptisms for EVERYONE!!!!!
|I felt cool when my sandals matched 2 other girls in our group|
I left from church to go pick up some stuff at Target... & by stuff, I mean goodies for the dogs. Spoiled dogs. They get more yummies & goodies than we do every weekend....
& was able to stop at Michael's for the last stuff I needed to finish up my project
|Thank goodness Target has a Starbucks for some energy to get through theday!!!|
But got home & got my inner artist on....
Finishing up my first hand lettering canvas.
I have to say, I was pretty excited how it turned out.
& I'm excited that I bought an extra canvas in case I messed up my first one... so I may have to try this again.
... & its got my brain working on some other things I want to make now too.
A monster may be unleashed - just saying....
I spent the rest of Sunday still not able to walk well with this stupid blister... but sat outside as much as I could. It's that horrible decision of wanting to feel the warm air on your face... but not breath the pollen that comes with it. #firstworldproblems
I felt like I went non stop this weekend... but loved everything I accomplished... & seeing the awesome decisions being made for God... all at the start of Holy Weeek. My favorite time of year. Easter really is my favorite thing to celebrate.... CANT WAIT TO SUNDAY!!!!!
So how was your weekend?
Are you an allergy sufferer?
Do you love Easter?
& Honest question....Should I make some of these canvases for my Etsy store?
