A Little Break for Me

My friend Christie over at A Lemon Squeezy Home is going to have a purse challenge contest on October 4th through the 8th. She asked me to be one of her judges for this challenge and I excitedly accepted it! Please head over to her blog and see all the details and great prizes she has. It will be fun!

Well, you all read about my crazy car situation last week. While we were down to one car I was the full time chauffeur for my family. In the morning I took them to work and school, I have one child that needs to be picked up midday, and the other two at few hours later and my husband at later still and they are two cities away...

It is crazy, but I did it. I did it with a pretty good attitude, because I had something I was looking forward to. Girls weekend getaway!!

My friends and I went to Vegas for the weekend. It was so much fun! When you hear "Vegas" you might think crazy parties, something we need to leave behind...

NOPE, not us! It was lots of shopping, eating, talking and laughing. Very clean healthy fun. :)

Here are some pictures that I took...

Oh...this was so good. More food came after this, but I was busy eating and forgot to take pictures of them.

I love taking picture of architecural designs and such for my design inspirations...(at a buffe, food and culture, two bird and one stone!)

Amy Butlerish(is that even a word?) carpet.

Also, we went to a HUGE swap meat. It was held outside in very hot weather. Near the end I thought I was going to pass out from heat exhaustion. Although, I found some great stuff, and here are my most favorite items.

The purplish pink necklace is all handmade and I bought it for only $5! I love the uniqueness of it, and I know it will be great addition to my fall outfits. I also found a vendor who was selling leathers (in this picture, this brown background you are looking at is the leather). I wanted to buy some leather for quite a while to use for my basket makeovers. I was so excited!! I will be using this leather soon.

It was a great getaway! The funny thing is though, I was never completely "AWAY". I guess once you become a mother, your heart is always attached to your loved ones no matter where you go.

Now I feel rejuvinated and good to go! I am back in to my routine and I rediscovered that I am happiest here with my family and I am such a lucky girl to have a husband who care about me enough that he will let me go for a weekend to take a break. :)
