My weekend, a sale, and a giveaway

Oh my heavens at the weekend I've had!! What happens when you can't log on to Google Reader? Do you you have a ton of unread blog posts waiting on you? I do, and I want to read each one of them. Maybe I will get through most of them today.

Let's do a quick (I'll try to keep it quick. I tend to talk type too much) overview of my weekend. After school on Friday, my son had a school dance to attend that didn't end until 9:30. Since we live an hour away from our schools, my daughters and I stayed at a friend's house while our older children danced away. Her daughter was going to the dance, too. We ate. We talked. We were lazy! It was good quality friend time outside of the school walls.

They are both great looking, well-rounded children. She is
in 6th grade, and he is in 7th grade. 
On the hour long drive home, a metal piece got stuck in the side of my tire. Whatever it was scraped all the way around the tire. My poor car. I'm so sad and yet so thankful we weren't hurt. When it happened, I was slowing down at a red light. I thought my tire shredded. Nope...
I think it looks even worse than in the pictures. :(

My sweet husband left work and drove to us to change my tire. He's funny about me having to do that kind of stuff. We didn't get home until around 11:30. That's late for this ol' moma!

On Saturday morning, we had to drive back to where we work/go to school (an hour away) because my girls cheer for basketball every Saturday. We had to be there at 10:30 to take pictures then they cheered. Well, Nicholas' 13th birthday is tomorrow, so we went shopping to find the shoes he wants. He found some he liked that we bought. They were very bright yellow. That would be okay except they will get dirty very easily. After we left and got to looking around some more, he changed his mind. He didn't want those shoes anymore. I didn't know boys could change their minds like that. Haha. After going to about 4 or 5 more shoe stores, they didn't have anything he liked in his size. One pair he picked out only had ONE shoe in a size 11. That's a problem since he has TWO feet. So, he had a backup pair in mind. They didn't have an 11 at all. By this point, I could have screamed. It was time to leave the mall. We are going to buy them online. 

We ate at Buffalo Wild Wings for his birthday. It's what he wanted. I love wings, so I wasn't arguing! I think that was the best part of the day. Maybe it's because I like to eat. 

I wake up this morning to find out that I'm How does that happen?? No coffee? Can't have that. We ended up making a quick trip to the dollar store down the road. 

After all that, I just want to remain friends with the couch all day! :)

On a school note...We are going to start working on Valentine's Day stuff next week. I can't wait. I love Valentine's Day. There are so many crafts I want to get done. I think I'm going to use my CAMEO to cut out a bunch of hearts. 

We will be using the things from my Valentine's Fun Pack. We'll make some of the crafts I've seen on Pinterest.  

I have it in my TpT store. It's on sale today and tomorrow. 

So much for making it quick. Sorry folks. 

I will give my Valentine's Fun Pack away to one person who leaves their email address. I will pick a winner tonight before bedtime.
