I break for cupcakes.

Happy Monday! Did you have a good weekend? I sure did! I only did one thing I actually planned on doing, but it was still super great and I wouldn’t have traded one minute.

Saturday bright and early I went to my friend Libby’s who was hosting a stamp yard sale extravaganza. My table was between two super duper fun ladies who I’ve always wanted to meet — Jimmy Sue from Texana Designs and Lydia from Splitcoaststampers.  Y’all reading this from Texas have just gotta check out Jimmy Sue’s stamps.  Heck, even if you’re not in Texas you should check out her stamps.  And as for Lydia, have you seen her tweets? She’s just too witty and clever.  And well, she’s just like that in person. Awesome.

I also got to meet Dana aka darthsunshine — she drove all the way up from San Antonio.  Jill, Karen, Shanda, Rae Anne, Brenda, Kristi, Laura, and Christina — we’ll all have to get together again soon!

Then J came and picked me up — he helped me carry massive boxes of stamps to the sale — luckily I left with one tiny box — thanks everyone! We had lunch at Thundercloud subs and then dessert at hey cupcake! Oh yeah!





Then I had a second dessert — J spotted a cute little shop called The Stitching Studio with his super vision eagle eyes and we stopped on the way home.  I found an huge bag of vintage scraps for $2, lace, gingham bias tape, and then check out the book that J found!


I love that man! :)

Then we watched a movie — anyone have any good summer movies to recommend?  Our Netflix queue is getting low.

Yesterday we thought we’d make a quick trip to Ikea to get a rug for the kitchen and a shelf so I could finish my sewing studio — but we ended up spending most of the afternoon there dreaming about updating our kitchen, hee hee.

Wishing you a sweet day with sprinkles on top,
