Yesterday I worked at the Scrapbook USA Scrapbook Expo for my friend Anne who owns Scrap Works. I ran the cash register and we were SLAMMED all day long, it was crazy! She had some awesome deals, so it was just crazy busy. I was so tired by the end of my shift that I grabbed my bag and walked straight out the door. It's the first time I have ever been to the scrapbook expo without spending a dime! Unlike those other wild women who spent $140 bucks without batting an eye. I hope it was a very successful weekend for Scrap Works.

Then today I painted my mom's house. We aren't even a quarter of the way done and I am heartily sick of painting. I hate painting anyway, and I am so dang tired, I don't know what my problem is. I feel like I have run a marathon. My back is sore from bending over all day at the expo (the registers were on a banquet table, so we were hunched over all day). My legs are sore from climbing up and down a ladder all day, and my arms are sore from rolling paint. I feel so old and decrepit! I wish I could hide under a rock and not go back tomorrow.

But since I need to offset all that paint negative with something positive, here is a beauty blessing for today. My mom's peach tree is in full bloom, it's gorgeous.

Isn't this the sweetest little bud? It's like a newborn for flowers.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

I thought that was you!! That booth was a mad house!! I was going to say Hi, but I couldn't even get close to the register!

Wait, Scrap Works had great deals and you didn't get me anything? What kind of sister are you? LMBO Glad you survived!

I saw you from a distance at the booth and wanted to stop and say HI but it was CRAZY! I worked on Friday and I totally agree with you 100%. Although, I admire that you didn't spend a dime, because I cannot say the same. ugh!
