Continued Ramblings and Weekend

Good morning!  I realized after I blogged on Saturday, that I completely forgot to include the reason I put that whole story up here in the first place!  I wanted to share with you a goal.  However, a little back story, first.  

Lately, I have realized that I don't have anything to work for in my life.  Yes, I have a job where I make chocolate, and it is great, but it isn't life changing.  I don't have any kids (just fur-babies), so I don't have that to worry about yet.  I just do the same thing day in and day out, and it seems like nothing was changing.  I realized I needed something to work towards.  I gave it a great deal of thought, and decided to set some goals.  

My first goal: get on a scrapbook and/or stamp company design team!  I think that would be awesome!  I've only ever done a little DT work when I was at Magic Scraps.  It was fun, but it was also a chore.  (I hope that my DT goal won't turn into a chore.)  I hope it might open doors to all kinds of things I never thought possible!  Now, I just have to see who is calling for DT members, and to step up my scrapping/stamping game!!!   (Umm. . .does anyone know a great site for DT calls??)

Moving on.  My weekend.  Friday, hubby and I had some friends over for dinner and a swim!  Fun stuff!  Saturday, hubby worked, and I got to play!  I made a card for a baby shower (that we were supposed to go to Saturday night, but decided not to!)  Simple and fun:

(Supplies: Stamp-Technique Tuesday; cardstock and patterned paper- Paper Studio; trim and glitter glue from Hobby Lobby)

Next, I worked on my layout for the Studio Calico Blog's weekly challenge. This is the opening page for my Wedding Reception album!
(Supplies: cardstock and patterned paper- Paper Studio; letters- my designs; rub-ons: Making Memories; flowers- Prima and Recollections; jewels-Paper Studio; heart- Studio Calico)

That night, hubby decided to grill a leg of lamb and veggie packets.  We were swimming while the meat cooked, but a storm came through and that ended the swimming.  However, it was a wonderful time spent.  The lamb was delicious!  Wow!  I'm glad we have some left. . . Can you say GYROs??

 Sunday, we went to church in the morning.  Hubby had to meet someone for a little work-related estimate, so while he was gone, I vacuumed the pool.  Man, it was HOT!  Gotta Love Texas!  Once hubby got back, we debated about our dinner plans.  We eventually decided on. . . .

wait for it. . . . .

Bacon-wrapped Hot Dogs, Macaroni-and-Cheese, and grilled corn!  Horrible for it, but MAN. WAS. IT. GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nothing else exciting.  We swam again, and then watched some Larry the Cable Guy on Netflix!  Great relaxing weekend!  How was your weekend?
