As it happens...I CAN keep a secret.
Sadly, most of what I needed to say last week would have spoiled a BIG surprise for one of my BFF's...Amy. See, last November, Amy decided to abandon our quest to become crazy cat ladies and got herself engaged. I know what you're thinking - no worries, I'm fine.
And it's not that I can't keep a secret at all - it's that I tend to let things slip that I think aren't relevant at all to anything. So, I have to go into full-avoidance mode fairly early in the game.
I arrived in Pennsylvania Thursday night. Denise arrived Friday morning. This left us ALL day Friday to get excited for the surprise. Jenn had planned a big cookout with her parents, her husband and John and Amy.
Starting at 5pm.
Note to anyone trying to surprise Amy: Make sure you keep John out of the loop as well.
There will be more stories from the weekend ~ today's is just a short one. In a true sign of a great weekend - I could literally place my head on my desk right now and fall asleep...so trying to explain anything would be quite dangerous.
That's Denise and I - wearing these super cute t-shirts that have a Bride, a Groom and the word "Surprise!!" on them. This was one of those good ideas that went totally awry the first time I tried to make them. Take two was a win. Even if we only got a few hours of use out of them.
And here we are working on pages for the Scrapbook Project that I volunteered myself for. Here are my thoughts on scrap booking after this experience: Scrap booking is stupid. Any craft that devotes six aisles to itself at Michael's is way to cocky. People in the Scrapbook aisles are not quite right. The great news is - our pages came out perfectly.
