I was out of town this weekend with my friend Jenny. Her sister Susan had a birthday and wanted to go outlet shopping so we went to Ohio and shopped all day Saturday. Let me tell you, those ladies can shop! I got some nice warm socks, some pajamas for Seth, some gloves for me. Sad as it may sound to some, I am so happy to have some new warm socks. Usually my socks are a bag of 6 for five bucks at walmart-or some ridiculous price like that. This time I bought pretty socks. The kind you pick out one pair at a time. Oooohhh La La. I am a a simple girl and easy to please.
Mostly I carried people's bags. Jenny said "You know, I never spend money like this." But really she does. I have seen her shop before, and if I am never going to let myself spend money with wild abandon, at least I know someone who can! She taught the boys at their local elementary school, and her husband will soon be a doctor. She deserves to spend all the money she wants. I did have a good time and we spent the night at a hotel and came home Sunday. It was nice to eat out and not have kids around. But, I did not read or knit as much as I had hoped. I was a team player.
I came home, and no one seems to have noticed I was gone. The house was clean enough and the kids were fine. The dog and Seth did miss me, and that was nice. I did call on the way home and ask Scott what kind of shape the house was in. I don't enjoy a messy home and really don't want to come home to one.
The card above was made for the Friday Hanna Challenge at SCS. It was sketch challenge, and I used paper from Basic Grey. The man is "Anthony" and the dog is from one of the dog sets, I can't remember which one. Well, there are three dog sets, how can I remember? I am getting older everyday!
I did buy a couple of surprise presents for friends while I was gone. Lynn, did you hear that? Something is for you, and it's not homemade. Get your smile on. You are going to pretend to love it.
