The trip to Austin was nice aside from the expo. Even though it's pretty close, I'd never really been there before. We drove through town and I just loved it. So many shops and stores and bars...everything looked so cool. All these funky signs and things:) I would really like to go back and just walk around downtown and see more. It was all so pretty and green. Lots of parks. We even saw a few birthday parties going on:)
So after the expo we had lunch and then checked out the Hobby Lobby there and the Jo Ann's Superstore!!! On the way into town I just had to stop in at my fave place...911:)
When we got home we tried calling Steve's mom, but couldn't get a hold of her. She watched the kids that day and had to go to church so she took them with her. So we just went ahead and headed out to dinner and drinks:)
Afterwards we headed to my inlaws. Besides going to church they had gone to the movies and out to eat during the day. Victoria had two little friends over that live across the street from my MILs. When it was time to go, she decided she wanted to stay the night and her to little friends stayed over too. This was her first ever sleep over!!! Mattie stayed as well so we came back home and picked up some clothes for them and then came back home and watched some TV and went to bed pretty early.
Sunday started out pretty good. Got to sleep in with the kids gone:) We had breakfast and read the morning paper. Then we talked to my MIL who suggested we take in a movie:) We went to the first showing of the day at Huebner and watched Blades of Glory. It was really funny. Although I think it's really more of a guy movie cause Steve laughed like a crazy person...(rolling eyes). I mean, it WAS funny, but come on...
We met the kids and my inlaws for lunch where Victoria had brought another one of her little friends who live across the street from my MILs:)
We wrapped up our day after that. Just went to do our weekly grocery shopping. While we were in Walmart, it started pouring...just as we were getting ready to check out. I mean POURING. The sound just got louder and louder in the store and everyone just kind of stopped and looked around at each other. Thankfully, it didn't last long so we were able to get out of there pretty fast.
It was a nice relaxing weekend I must say:)
There was a booth with tons of big bins and everything was 1/2 off. I found all these MME Bohemian rubons!!! There was tons more and I meant to go back and get more, but I forgot:( They were only about 65 cents!!!
LOVE chipboard especially the Plain Janes. They were out of the arrows and the stars:(
One of the booths had this cute little gumball machine that was full of these buttons!!! I got four quarters worth:) Too cute:)
Lots and lots of Scenic Route:) I had REALLY been wanting these cardstock arrows. I got all three sets and some papers from a few different lines.
Serendipity papers. I just love that cute little owl:)
We were each given a ticket to fill out for door prizes. This is what Steve won;)
I stopped in at 911 on our way back into town and picked up these yummy goodies. I had no idea Heidi Swapp made ribbons!!! They are too cute:)
Last pic:) Some goodies I got in the mail. A friend over at sb.com is just starting up her ebay store and I got these fabulous flowers. I LOVE the new Prima Sprites:) They are embossed.

Originally Victoria wanted to do a princess float, but I was having some trouble coming up with some good ideas and this is more within the "fiesta" theme, I think:) She LOVED it.
So besides the "parade" they are also having a Fiesta party. All the kids had to bring something themed from the list. We were assigned bunuelos. For those of you who don't know what those are, they are like those cinnamon sugar crispy thingies;) I personally don't like them. WAAAAYYY too much sugar, but for a bunch of 5 and 6 years olds, I am sure it will be pure heaven:)
So Steve went to get them after Mattie's report card conference last night and he couldn't find any around our area and had to drive all the way across town to pick up the last two bags at another HEB.
I am hoping to do some scrapping today, but I'll see how far I can get with my chores and stuff.
I do have some yummy goodie pics to share of some things I picked up at Hobby Lobby the other day:
Here's two more Heidi Swapp stamps I got in from Cherry On Top. I am having such a time finding them all in one place so I have to keep getting a couple here and there. I think I ALMOST have them all:)

I finally got to use one of my new Cricut carts; Stamped. I just LOVE the shorty option for the font. It gives it a kind of distressed look...LOVING it:)

I am thinking of going back and trying to get a different one with the ad:) hee hee
Another awesome Michael's find today and I used my 40% off coupon on it too:)
They had this is the smaller sizes as well. They also had the ric rac one which is like the zig zag edged one, but only in the small size not the 12x12. I didn't get that one though.
We got up early this morning and went out to breakfast then took Victoria to see Meet the Robinson's in 3D. We saw it last week in the regular version...wasn't that much of a difference:( Oh, well...she liked it. Gotta run and pick up Mattie from my mom's. Off for now.

Pics of my daughter's first day of Kindergarten back in August. I used to embellies my good friend Ang made me in our Bag of Tags Swap a while back. I always feel like I can't do her items justice:) She made me the "a" monogram and the little decorated ruler:) I LOVE them so and I really like the way they look on this LO:) The rest of the letters in the title were cut with my Cricut; Mini Monograms. This is also somewhat of a first for me. I hardly used any kind of patterned paper; just the little strip of "school paper" at the bottom. I really like the look of the kraft paper for this. TFL

I used some of the felt ric rac from Hobby Lobby and I finally got around to using my Fastenator. I've had that thing FOREVER...at least a year:( The pics are from Mommies Group Easter party.

Went by Walmart to fill Mattie's Rx and went through the craft department and found these. They are putting out all sorts of new scrap goodies. I can't wait to see what else they get in. They are clearancing alot of the older stuff, but nothing I want or would use:(
Well, it's back to the cleaning and hopefully I can do some scrapping later today or tomorrow. I feel the need to create:)

I originally wanted the second LO to say Enjoy the moment and was planning on using my new Heidi Swapp stamps, but then realized I didn't have the "moment" stamp so then I opted for "Cherish the Moment". I am not too happy with the way "moment" came out:(

I worked on this one today. It's a pic of my daughter and some of her friends at the zoo field trip last week. I cut some of the flowers with my Wishblade, some with my Cricut and some with one of my flower punches then colored them in with American Craft markers and some sharpies:) I used some of my new Autumn Leaves stamps; the journaling ones, on this LO. I am loving those stamps:) TFL
