... yeah.... I'm that way.
I was looking back at pictures I took on Friday & was like, "That was THIS weekend?"... you KNOW its busy then.
Friday for me kicked off with a big night.
It was the annual Blue Vs. Pink at our church - a youth event for middle school that has the boys vs. girls in competitions. The past 2 years, the boys have won. I wanted so badly for our girls to win - especially because my girls are 8th graders & it was their last year to get that win....
& long story short - WE WON!!!!!
It was hard fought... & so much fun.
|This is my girl!!!! She is an ALL IN kinda girl - obviously
... she's the girl in the pic below on the left.
I was glad some of my girls were able to make it for the fun - especially because half of our little bible study group was at a championship soccer game. I hated they didnt get to make it & I hated I didnt get to make their game.... but we still had the BEST TIME!!!!
I didnt get home till nearly 11pm....for me? That's like staying up all night long. I was EXHAUSTED!
Luckily, I did get to sleep in till 8:30 on Saturday.... whew. I needed it.
I got up with a motivation to try a new project I wanted to try - those bookmarks I talked about on Friday.
I got some water color paper & pulled out my paints & I got to creating...
I was actually really happy how they are turning out.
I'm getting some inspiration though on some future ones - where there's adding washi tape, & gems & ribbons.... Just a fun thing to work on... like I dont have enough things to do.
I then got my crock pot going with Bruno's food for the week....
& the geared up because it was time for a photo session.
I'm so glad this sweet girl got worked in because it was literally the ONLY open date I had for basically the rest of the year... & it couldnt have been a better day. The temps were perfection, she was stunning, & we just had the best time doing her session.
|I reallllly need to clean my back shield
We even stopped in between locations at Starbucks. #daymade
I said this is why I love doing pictures for people that are my friends, because there's just a comfort that makes it all just a better experience. Plus, I'm just a better person with iced coffee.
I cant wait to work on these pictures... I was so busy the rest of the weekend that I havent even gotten them uploaded yet. But I'll be working hard this week at getting these gorgeous pictures to their owner.
After getting home & taking a shower, giving Bruno a bath, getting his meals ready for the week, & doing my Bible study, I was just exhausted...
I just called it a day by laying in bed & watching the last 2 episodes of Ozark. Which by the way, can someone who watches it talk about it with me. I mean, COME ON... that last show of the season?!?!?!??!?!?!? OHHHHH MYYYYYYGOSHHHHHHHHHHH.... I literally was screaming at the screen... twice actually.
... my anxiety is kicking in again thinking of it....
Sunday, time for MSM ... which was a fun day since its fall break, our numbers are down - so they ended up separating the boys & girls for the next 2 weeks. This week, the girls got to go around & see what areas there are to serve in & the boys had a lesson given just for them. Next week, the boys go around & the girls get their lesson.... I'm excited because I get to be a part of that & help out on a panel of women speaking to the girls.
I left from church to head to my Joysters .... It was just such a great time of talking & reflecting & sharing.... I cant even put into words how much I love these ladies.
I made it a point though that I was just going to be there till 3... I had to jet
It was after all, my momma's birthday! YAHOOO!!!! 70! Doesnt she make 70 look good????
|Think my momma likes blue? Just a little bit?
I loved it was a perfect day to sit outside & just talk & laugh & play with all the animals....
Finally, around 7:00, Ricky & met up since I didnt get to see him the whole day & we ran down to get some dinner....
& then I got home & was OFFICIALLY exhausted.
By the time I got the dogs fed & did my bible study for the day, I literally couldnt do one more thing but just lay on the bed.. in my clothes... not even turning a channel because I was too tired... but glad my TV was on Halloween Wars on Food Network. I'm always a sucker for all their Halloween shows all October long.
So yeah... it was a doozy of a weekend... & I actually have a busy week ahead & another busy weekend after that.
People think I'm lying when I say that my calm time is going to be January 2018.... its true.
How was your weekend?
October busy for you?
Finally feeling like FALL to you?
