It's Freebie Friday!!

Happy Friday!!

Got plans for this weekend? Looks like mine is going to be jammed packed with things to do. Wednesday was my father’s birthday, yesterday was the husband’s birthday and tomorrow is my oldest son’s birthday (it also was my grandmother’s birthday), we decided to celebrate them all tonight by going out to dinner. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it? I doubt it will be all that exciting. One on one, each man can be fun to be around, all together though, they tend to be a tad dull. I like to take my time, have a cocktail, chat, have dessert and coffee, reminisce, laugh. They like to eat and leave. I will definitely miss the presence of another woman but my dear daughter is going camping. Just me and the boys. Oh well.

Tomorrow we will be attending a performance of “The Pirates of Penzance”starring the middle son of DH’s boss. George is absolutely adorable and I’m looking forward to his rendition of the pirate king. Afterward there is a buffet, I’m not too sure we’ll be attending but I’m sure there will be some form of dining out for us. If it’s at all possible, I just might be able to talk to DH into heading to the theater for a viewing of New Moon. I won’t hold my breath though, that could possibly be too much culture for one day.

Sunday morning we’ll be headed to the Reagan Library to take a gander at the “Christmas Around The World” exhibit with its 26 themed trees representing the countries President Reagan visited while in office along with other memorabilia. Even though the library is no more than an hour’s drive from here, I’ve never been. I’m so looking forward to this visit.

Then the afternoon will be devoted to loading the cart with groceries for next week. As my beloved daughter is heading to Texas for a Thanksgiving week with her in-laws, my darling youngest is in South Korea (planning a trip to Pusan to locate the temples my father visited during the war) and my strongly principled son (who refuses to see genocide as reason to be thankful and yes, I am very proud of his ethical values and his ability to stand firm against those who mock him), it appears the only ones for dinner will be the DH, the dog, the cat and me. Our feast will certainly be lackluster (I’m still on this enormously restrictive diet of mine), perhaps a small turkey, potatoes for the DH and salad. I do not miss the days of rising at 3 am to start preparations and being on my feet the entire day bringing together a dinner that is finished within an hour. A day at home, watching movies or reading is jim-dandy by me.

It’s been awhile but I have finally scrapped a few pages. I picked up a couple of kits designed by Crystal’s Creations and tossed a couple pages together. The first kit is called Azure Allure.

While I was over at Scrappity-Doo-Dah(such a cute name), I also grabbed this kit called Pretty in Plum.

Both kits are full of beautifully colored papers and fun elements. You can pick them up yourself here.

Before I go, I have a new goodie for you. I especially enjoyed putting these together because they are one of my favorite items to use while scrapping. I hope you enjoy them and I would love to see what you do with them. Please link a sista up. Also, contrary to all the rumors I’m sure you’ve heard by now, I am NOT allergic to comments, so feel free to leave a few. Remember, my links are only up for one week.

Have a super duper weekend.
Peace to you,
