So I'm not usually one to wish for time to pass (I am way too sentimental about days passing too quickly), but I am looking forward to the end of May.
To say May has been crazy in my house would be the understatement of the year. All of it was fun stuff and I wouldn't change any of it, but I'm wishing I could have spread some of the festivities out a bit. First was my solo trip to Florida - I told you not to feel sorry for me :-)
I went to Fort Lauderdale to help my in-laws with their drive home. As a perk, I got to spend a week at the beach, do some fantastic shopping, and read. In fact, I got to read 13 books. I have never read 13 books in such a short amount of time. It's amazing what you can get through when you don't have to take care of anyone else! I was grateful to be there, but was happy to get home to my family too.
Then the fun began. The week I was back was filled with preparations for 2 wonderful events - that happened to be scheduled back to back.
Saturday I hosted a birthday party for my youngest. My baby was turning seven (insert sentimental gasp here) and I had 6 seven year olds over for a scrapbooking party. It was so much fun, and I loved seeing what the kids had come up with when they were done. It helped that I had a superb Creative Memories consultant (who is also a dear friend) over to run the party. This meant I could take pictures for my own scrapbook!
After everyone left, I had some crafting left to do to get ready for my little sister's baby shower - which we held on Sunday. It was so fun to watch all our friends and family gather to celebrate the fact that we are adding a new member to our family. My sister looked and felt great, and she got everything she will need for once the baby is born ( ha ha...so she thinks)!! There was a little added stress to the day - we discovered that my other sister's wedding venue had burned down the night before! She was a trooper and got through Sunday with a smile. Now the hunt is on for a new location!!
The month of May was a fantastic one, but I admit I'm looking forward to a quieter June. Then the fun starts again while we prep for my other sister's bridal shower and wedding!! Maybe I should be looking forward to September! LOL
