Saturday morning started with Spencer's baseball game (pictures to come later). They lost so they are are 3-2 now. The cool thing is that Spencer's teacher came to the game. Very sweet of her. I totally forgot to get a picture though - shame on me!
We got a cover for the back of Matt's Explorer Sportrac - awesome deal. Basically we got it for free and just have to pay to have the locks fitted. We need this - now we can take his truck on road trips, etc.
We enjoyed a lunch out at Firebonz where they have lots of flat screens so we were able to watch the draft while we ate. We were going to attend an Earth Day event at the museum but Spencer opted to go home and watch the rest of the draft instead (not exactly your typical 8 year old).
Matt had to work Saturday night so it was just Spencer and I. He finished up his weather project for this month and then we watched last week's Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?. Good episode. Love that show. We played football in the yard for a bit. That night I worked a little on the foundation's website but I have a lot of learning to do.
Sunday morning was low key. Matt had to sleep. Spencer and I watched our neighbors shoot their bows into the woods. I managed to try on all of my capris and shorts from last year - figured out what fits and doesn't. What I need and don't. Also got some stuff ironed that had been crumpled on a shelf since last season.
After Matt got up and we had tacos for lunch, I joined my sister for a tour of four local houses. We hit one store for shopping (Talbot's - I didn't get anything). I dropped her off at church and was able to count how many people we can accommodate at the church. We will definitely be able to fit 100 scrappers so I hope I can get that many. That's a pretty big goal!
I went shopping at Kohl's -- felt a little guilty for spending more than I should. But after getting home and trying on some more things I decided that I'll take back a necklace and pair of pants that I'm not really *loving*, so I feel a tad better. I was able to get two shirts that are super cute and a necklace that I think I'll get a lot of wear out of. I bought the cutest pair of shoes but had a hard time choosing a color (navy, red or black). I went with black and have left the tags on, just in case! I also picked up a tee and flip flops for Spencer.
Over the course of the weekend I was able to make 9 cards for Spencer's related arts teachers for Teacher Appreciation Week (pictures to come). I also finally finished up a mini album that I started in October - ridiculous! Glad to have that completed (pictures to come).
I had a horrible time falling asleep last night and I'm functioning off about 4 hours of sleep right now, and that's not consistent sleep by any stretch. But I did watch 4 episodes of Desperate Housewives in order to get caught up. Sad, huh?
You'll probably be hearing a lot more about this crop as things get rolling with my plans. It looks like we'll most likely hold the event in August so I have about 3 months to plan. It seems like plenty of time but I know it will fly by!
Also, I've agreed to take over their website for them. I have no experience with this and Strait's coming over tonight to show me the software. Should be interesting!
It was a quick and easy read (seriously, I read it in 2 days). It's a heart-warming story and is written with a nice touch of wit. If you like golf, I'm sure that would make the book even more enjoyable. It would probably make a nice little gift for a golfer that likes to read, or a reader that likes to golf.
Saturday Matt & I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary. It really seems time has flown by! We enjoyed a nice dinner out and a bottle of champagne back at the house. Plus, I get an hour massage soon. Yippee!! Obviously we took this photo ourselves so pardon the extreme close-up.

Here are pictures from Spencer's second baseball game. After losing the first, I'm happy to report that the White Sox pulled off an awesome win on this one!
I barely scrapped at all. I added pictures to the 3 calendar pages that I shared here. But that wasn't even really scrapping. The only worthwhile thing I did was that I managed to get started on the 6x6 pages for Spencer's class (I'm doing about 19 small scrapbooks - one for each kid in his class). The pages are SUPER simple. Basically I just print the information on the computer 19 times, add that with a photo and strip of patterned paper. I might add some stickers later on or something. In general, keeping it very simple!
So, definitely didn't do well in March. I hope April is better - though it's a busy month so we'll see what happens.
