Weekend Wrap Up

We had an interesting day of running errands on Saturday. I took Jordan to her last practice before the horse show next weekend. She did an amazing job riding the course! I didn’t take photos because I’m saving that for next weekend. We were supposed to go visit with Lexie’s bio brother Nathan after her riding lesson but his Mom cancelled the visit due to a family emergency.

We went home and I found out that Ronnie had bought me a Cold Stone Creamery ice cream cake for my birthday. I love ice cream but don’t like cake much at all. I know. That makes me weird but it’s true! The cake was good. (Well. The ice cream part was. I have to admit that I picked most of the cake part out and fed it to the kids.)

My actual birthday was Sunday. I turned thirty-one years old. I don’t want to talk about it. I’m pretty tired of this birthday stuff so I don’t think I’m going to have any more. LOL I spent my birthday here at the house with Ronnie and the kids. We played outside. The kids swam in the kiddie pool, and I sprayed Ronnie with the water hose after he threw a bucket of water on me. I soaked up some sun and just enjoyed being outside. It was a really good day. Ronnie gave me money to buy scrapbook supplies too. That made it an even better day! I also got to scrapbook. I’ve been on a kick creating hybrid cards lately.

Today Ronnie called me on his way to work and told me that there was a show car from Brad Keselowski sitting in the front of a hotel in Covington. He told me I should bring Brandon to check it out. We got there just as the guy was fixing to leave but he let me take a few photos to make Ronnie and Brandon happy.

Brandon may have been slightly impressed by the whole thing. As evidenced by his ear to ear grin.

The guy even let Brandon start the truck with his remote starter before he left. He seriously made this boy’s day! He talked about it to everyone he met today.

Before I go I have one layout and quite a few hybrid cards I did to share!!

When I saw Kari's Easter card template I immediately thought of combining it with Carina Gardner's Hippity Hop collection! This is what I came up with. I added some buttons and a Prima flower. Then I used Stickles to add some bling!

Here’s the second card. The credits are the same as the one above it but it’s a little bit different!
