Successful Yard Sale!

The yard sale was a success! Contrary to the weather reports, the rain held out and it was a beautiful morning. Cool and breezy, perfect weather for a yard sale. We had a lot of traffic come through, and I made a satisfactory amount of money based on how much stuff I had to sell. I really didn't have much because there was not enough time to get it all together since we were in Texas the weekend before.

After the yard sale, my mom and I went shopping. I got some great scrapbooking stuff from A.C. Moore with a gift card I'd been saving since Christmas from my mother-in-law. A.C. Moore has the best selection of scrapbooking supplies out of all the craft stores I've been to, and unfortunately we do not have one here in Richmond. I sure wish they would open one close by!

We also stopped at Kohl's and Maurice's before grabbing a pizza and heading back home. That night, we watched Gran Torino (great movie!) and Radonna came over to visit. I hadn't seen her in a while, so it was good to catch up. It was her first time seeing my parents' new house, as well.

Sunday, Rory, Scotty and I went to church, and afterwards we celebrated their birthdays along with Mother's Day. Amy, Bobby, Leah & Lila came over to visit, and Amy showed us her bridal bouquets. They are so pretty! She's planned her wedding for September 5th. It will be here before we know it.

I drove back to Richmond and got home around 5:30, took a bath and read a new book I started: The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency, by Alexander McCall Smith. It's so good! They are starting a new series on HBO based on the books, and it really makes me wish we had HBO.

I started going through Texas pictures last night to pick out my favorites so I can start blogging. The problem is that its not just MY pictures I have to go through - I have to go through Anne's, Scotty's, Rory's, Shane's AND Mandy's. Scott and Mr. Trost are the only one's who didn't have their own camera. So there are literally thousands of pictures (I think Rory alone had over 1000). I need to go through them, not only so I can blog, but also so I can order prints and start scrapbooking. The car show is next weekend, and Jeanine wants to do some scrapbooking while we are there. She may not be up for all the walking in the heat since she's well into her 2nd trimester. And I can't be in the sun that much anyway, so it will work out well for us.

It's Monday. Hopefully the week will go by fast for everyone.
