We had the best weekend! Saturday we spent time at the Farmer's Market, went out to breakfast and then headed to the store to do some shopping. I bought the most fabulous berries (marrionberries, boysenberries and raspberries) as well as fresh green beans. Love green beans!! The berries were just screaming to be made into a pie. Yes, I forgot to flute the edges of my pie crust before baking. Oops...oh well, it didn't hurt the taste in the least and just added a rustic feel :)
I am teaching a mini album class on Saturday at my church. This is me getting ready. Pretty exciting!
This is the project we will be making. It is a mini album using Close To My Heart's true fit folios, paper and ink. I used the Life Delights paper pack for this. Love the pinks and chocolates. Yummy! Each section, except the front, has a pocket with a card insert. Such a fun project. These instructions came from a fellow CTMH consultant, Kelly E.-T. You can do so many fun things with this. I'm really looking forward to teaching this!
My BFF came over to visit me Saturday. She has been knitting a shawl and finished it up Saturday. She also took pictures of my pie and me. In exactly that order :) Her pictures are way better than mine, which is why I cannot put a picture of the shawl on here as I took the shawl picture. Sorry friend!! But, this is us at Starbucks goofin' around...
My son and I went swimming at the local pool. Did I mention I hate 'suiting up'? Need to find the perfect suit. I'm on a mission...
Sunday we traveled to Portland to see a baseball game at PGE park. It was super hot and lots of fun!
Cody and I:
Unfortunately, the home team lost :(
All in all, it was a great weekend spent with the ones I love most.
Today was another work day. I do have to say weekends are not long enough - we should have madatory three-day weekends...a girl can dream, can't she?
Have a blessed evening!
