The weekend and some great giveaways

Wow, I can’t believe it is Monday  already.  Where did the weekend go.  I had a very busy weekend and the weather Saturday was perfect with the sun shining after so many cold dreary days.  It was still cold but the sun somehow made it bearable.  Sunday was another story, lots of rain, and the temperature we still cold.  This morning, it is dreary and rainy again but with temps almost 60.  But I hear there is a cold front heading our way.  Oh goodie! 

Saturday was a day spent doing one of my favorite things in the the whole world, scouring Antique shops with Michael and friends.  We hit three Antique malls.  I will try to share  my finds with you later this week.  We started out in Emmitsburg at the antique mall emmitsburg mall 1 emmitsburg mall 2 and I found a couple of little things.  Then we headed over to Hanover Pa, and hit two more.

Me and my friend walked away with some goodies.  After seeing all the prices in these places, it made me long for spring and yard sales.  I am gearing up for Yard Sale season.  How bout you?  After all that fun, we headed to dinner.  We hadn’t taken the time all day to eat and so at 7:00 or so we were famished.  Afterwards we had a little Christmas celebration.  We normally exchange gifts with this couple but due to all our schedules we hadn’t been able to fit it in until now.  So it was fun to still have a little bit of Christmas.  Now I can officially say that it over until next year.

Yesterday, was spent rearranging my furniture in my family room.  I will try to get a few pictures soon to share.  I need some help with one particular area.  So would like your comments and advice.

Also, hubby finally got our elliptical machine put toelliptical machinegether, so now I have NO excuses for not exercising.  Need to get this  body into shape before my son’s May 1 wedding.  I still need to shop for that mother of the groom dress.  Don’t have a clue what to even look for.  Help!

Since I was home yesterday I actually had a chance to cook and make a wonderful Chicken and Rice casserole, with enough leftovers for another meal.  Not sure if we will eat that tonight or tomorrow.  Tuesdays are normally hectic here in the evenings, no one is around until after 9 or so…so it’s always nice to have something you can pop in the microwave.  K..guess I just talked myself into having it tomorrow…so will have to plan something for tonight.

Today will be a bit busy, Tori needs to do some shopping, so I am going to take her to look for some new clothes for work.  She has a interview tomorrow for a new hair salon and they have a dress code, so she needs to pick up a few things.  Plus while I am in town I think I will make a run to JoAnnes. 

Now for the fun stuff…

Giveaways  3 of them.  Woo Hoo!

Sassy-red-front-no-bow For the first stop…you have to stop in at Sarah Mae’s and register to win her “flirty apron”.  Too adorable.  All I will say, if you don’t you will be sorry.  Her little video is so sweet too.  She shares with us where we can actually purchase these aprons, and there are some sweet, flirty ones available.Thinking I might have to have one of these on my Valentines Day list.  Way better than chocolate. I like to spend time with Sarah Mae every morning.  She has the most insightful and inspiring blog for me.  Love her!

Hi Cindy, hope you're having a good week. I wish we had some nice antique stores around here... we probably have them in Austin, but I don't venture out too far! I love seeing what you find.
