The last few days have been nuts for me. I've been so busy, I've barely had time to stop and think! I'll share some of the highlights with you.
Friday morning I had the opportunity to help a dear friend out and judge tryouts for Wendy's high school cheer squad. It was fun to be involved with something cheer related again, even for just a day. I was also flattered that she thought of me. It made me realize that I do miss cheering. Wendy was so cute providing us with great treats and by color coordinating all the judging materials. She's so neat! Wendy and I realized that we hadn't actually seen one another since high school, so it was great to get to visit with her in person once again.
After I finished the tryouts, I had to run straight home to pack up my room. I spent about 4.5 hours packing and cleaning. I was so exhausted at that point that I didn't know how I could possibly move everything at that point. Thankfully Sean showed up at that point to help me. Traci's parents were also great about getting the stuff down to my new bedroom for me. It was great to have the extra manpower. I sure couldn't have done it alone. We ran into an issue with my couches however. I had nowhere to store them. There was no room at Traci's house, my dad's house and they couldn't fit down the stairs at my mom's house. I was worried that I'd have to get rid of them, but my sister decided that she'd take them for her apartment. I do need a new TV stand now though as I decided my old was too much bulk to keep moving around. I was so exhausted that I passed out around 11pm that night, which is early for a Friday night.
Saturday was another busy day for me. I got up fairly early considering I like to sleep late on Saturdays. I had to go to my cousin's fiance's bridal shower. It was nice to see extended family that I hadn't seen in quite a long time. It also didn't hurt that they had some pretty good food to snack on while they're there.
After that it was time to head to Ashley's baby shower. Ashley and I have been friends since we were five. I've been through a lot with this girl so it was nice to be able to be there with her at her bridal shower. She is a little over a month away from her due date, but I'm sure she's feeling pretty ready now. She looks so adorable with her little belly! It was fun to get to see her family again as well. Ashley's house used to be my second house growing up, but I hadn't seen her parents or sister in years. There were also lots of other people that I hadn't seen in a long time, such as Megan. I hadn't seen her since she was pregnant with her first little boy and now her second is 8 months! It was such a nice few hours.
After the two showers, I finally had some time to unpack. I thought it would take forever to get everything in its place, but it really wasn't bad. It only took an hour or so to unpack everything. What a nice feeling it is to be all settled once again.
Sunday I had a meeting at panty heaven/hell. We had an opportunity to learn about some exciting new products and changes at the store. I do love working there a couple nights a week. My friend from work, Suzi, and I went to lunch after. She's such a fun girl to hang out with.
Later I got the opportunity to hang out with family again. Many people were up at my mom's for enchilada night. The food was delicious and I love being able to see my mom. We played apples to apples with 11 people! That was a challenge!
My weekend was great, but I'm sure ready for a break!
