Update and a Break

Last week was insane! I really wanted to post pictures, but we didn't take any. Here's a brief run down anyway.

Last week I:
  • Baked 72 cupcakes for the Cub Scout Blue and Gold Banquet
  • Had company over for dinner one night
  • Visited people from church with my hubby 
  • Memorized my parts in an 9 page play for Saturday
  • Sewed--a pioneer dress, a pair of pants, and a vest--all for the play (this is what I wish I had pictures of because they turned out amazing!)
  • Normal mom and home care stuff
  • Friday and Saturday I attended a Women's conference for my church. This included the "dinner play" that I was in. Turned out to be more of a skit thank goodness since I had been given the wrong script! All that practice learning 1830s parliamentary speech for nothing. I learned that the long sleeve, full length slip and dresses were actually quite comfy. I passed on the petticoat.
All of that during the week I didn't sleep, so it felt like a lot more.

Anyway, I'm going to take the rest of the week off of blogging so I can actually get some writing done.

And a nap or two, or three. :)

See you on Monday!

    1. It was a lot of fun, but a break will be nice. I managed to get roped into babysitting a 2 year old today though. Why can't I learn to say no?

    1. I should have taken a picture because I stacked them to look like a birthday cake and then decorated them with candies. I wish I could share them with you!
