Weekend Update

Hello ladies and gentlemen...it's hard to believe that another week has come to an end. I am Scrappy Girl and I will be your host on this walk down my weekly memory lane.

It was a weird week. Some days were chaotic and twirly while others were SO boring.
Sunday was a cool day. I actually hired the DJ for Manga Dork's party. What a relief to get that out of the way! The next step was to get the invites passed out. On Friday, we sent 122 to school. She is inviting the entire junior high! Yikes! Next step...

The Cake! I would love to order something like this (just in 80s theme), but in this "neck of the woods" you would never find someone who does them like that. Manga Dork has requested a #1 and and #3 cakes. Wish me luck...

On Tuesday Manga Dork got smeared down the court at her volleyball game. This week they have 2 practices, 2 games, and picture day.
On Friday I revealed the results of my first week challenge in Project Better. This is a photo taken today. I have managed to keep it clean still. Although there IS a bottle of tea on the counterspace. Evidently bodily harm is not a big enough threat. LOL! Be on the lookout Monday for a new challenge! Thank you Mechelle and Heidi for joining me this week!

On Saturday we did a little retail therapy with Manga Dork and friends. These are the accessories for her outfit...yes, those are Madonna gloves AND yes those silver circles are earrings! Do you think she could have gotten bigger ones?!

And of course I had to stop at the Scrap Shack. I brought home mostly volleyball themed items!

Let me just say that I found something that is FANTABULOUS TO THE MAX (Sorry, too much 80s research LOL)! We have an ice cream shop called Brusters. OMGoodness...I had a waffle cone with one scoop of CHOCOLATE RASPBERRY TRUFFLE! So bad for me...yet so YUMMY!

This is my photo of the week...I was typing up a post and I felt something touching my feet. I looked down and Wild Child said, "HiiiiiiiiiYA!" Too funny!

This week in Bloggy World these bloggy friends...

Made me laugh...Just Us Elizabeth is Creating Keepsake's Scrapbooker of the Year. Her hubby, Collin, is hilarious and they seem to be such a fun couple. This post is part of a book called, "Porn for Women." It is NOT dirty so do not hesitate to go over and check it out. THEN be sure to read this post. It is their own take on the book (Yes, that is her hubby in the photos)!

Made me cry...Jan and her daughter experienced a terrible loss this week. This post took my breath, gave me chills, and made me cry. It broke my heart that sweet Jan was going to have to tell her young daughter that her BFF had been killed in a car accident.

Made me think...Live Laugh Love is a great blog if you want to think about what is most important in our world. Christal has great posts every Monday and Thursday.

Have a great week! Happy Blogging!
