A Good Weekend

I'm so happy it's Monday! I normally am not a big fan of the day, but I am today. We are all healthy! We had a great weekend. My To Do list has gotten huge after the flu went through the house, but now that we're feeling better,  I started checking things off!

On Saturday, hubby and Rose were in Seattle for her soccer game then afterwards they went sightseeing around town before driving home. She got Space Needle earrings and a special 12th man Seattle Seahawks shirt. A great belated birthday celebration for her with her dad, who she really misses when he's not home.

IKEA's RÅSKOG
Finn had his final soccer game in the Founder's Cup tournament, then Mackenna and I made a run to IKEA to buy one of these. Check out the link and see all the cool things you can do with them in a variety of rooms in your house or apartment.

Yeah, I probably sound like an ad, but when I saw that article above I knew I had to have one. Of course, I ended up purchasing two RÅSKOG carts, a blue one for Mackenna's room and a gray one for me. I haven't had time to put them together yet, but that's on my list of things to do. I'll be sure to post pics once we figure out how we're going to use them!

Last night we finally had Rose's birthday dinner at her favorite place The Old Spaghetti Factory. Perfect timing for a celebration since I also sent off the line edits for my first Special Edition, The Nanny's Billionaire. Rose and Mackenna both spent the night elsewhere so Finn and I watched a movie together—Pacific Rim. A good choice because I found the inspiration for my new Special Edition hero while watching. I happened to be working on the proposal at the same time. Needless to say perfect timing!

So how was your weekend?

Well Sat was not a good day because we had a lot of snow storm and cold weather. But Sunday the tempts jumped back up to 50 and I got to take a walk. Needless to say the tempts are dropping back down today and its about 16 degrees. One thing about KY if you don't like the weather one day give it a chance it will change over night. So ready for spring.

Those carts are cute and look like they'll be very useful.. So glad to hear Rose had some some special time with her dad AND her birthday dinner. Hope your week is going well.

Oh, that's cold Quilt Lady. Hope it's warmed up or did you get more snow yesterday?

Thanks, Brandy. So far the week is going well. Still haven't gotten the carts together, but once I finish my proposal that's first on the To Do list! I love them.
