Hi everyone! I hope you had a great week! For those in the US have a great 3 day weekend for Memorial Day and to those who serve (or served) our country....THANK YOU each & every day for your work and sacrifices! I think a lot of times we forget what this holiday is actually about in the rush to have some summer fun. So just my two cents on it but wishing all those who have served the US a very restful holiday weekend as well.
I won tix to see Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Eli Young Band and Kacey Musgraves in concert tomorrow night through the Washington Redskins Women Group...whooohoooo! I almost peed my pants when I found out since I enter contests ALL the darn time but never win. Well I won and I will be there at FedEx Field with Alexa whooping and hollering LOL. Its gonna be in the 70s so I will be wearing a coat LOL...not sure where the HOT weather went but I want it back...NOW! Then on Monday we will go see the Washington Nationals play the Baltimore Orioles...our 2 fave teams facing off...gonna be a good one! And blissfully on Sunday we have nothing...nothing but hanging around and doing nothing LOL.
Only 2 more weeks of school left...my kids get out on June 6th and not only are they excited but SO AM I...omegosh! Between field trips, choral events, exams, projects and papers due...I'm TIRED. Why these high school teachers assign so much in the last 3 weeks of school is beyond me. But they've both had hours of homework each night and I'm DONE with editing papers. They both had 4 papers EACH...two of which had to be 10-14 pages long...and I'm the family editer...I'm over it LOL! Alexa doesn't know but she's getting a BIG award on Tues for her academics (she has a 4.1 GPA) so she will be surprised. So proud of her because she's had a TOUGH year with all her AP classes, Calculus and Chemistry...lots of homework, tests and projects for those this year and she's pulled straight A's all the way through...that's a tough accomplishment. She will be applying for early acceptance to her #1 choice Univ of SC in August. They base early acceptance on Academics only, nothing else so I'm hoping she gets in with that round...if not she can apply again in Oct. She's also applying to Auburn Univ, Florida State, Towson Univ and U of NC. So we shall see...hard to believe she will be a senior in the fall.
PS...if you hover over my blog pics now you will see an AQUA P...that means you can pin it to Pinterest if you'd like! :)
Soooo this is my Mother's Day present for my mom....yup its late...yup she doesn't have it yet LOL. I will HAND deliver it in a few weeks when I see her and she will see it here on my blog as well ahahaha. But I had good intentions to get it done in time but some of my "supplies" didn't get here when they were supposed to...ugh. But I got it done and I'm purty pleased with how it came out. Its a bit shabby-chic-french-country and yes its another altered cigar box.
