I'm Off...

This morning I'm leaving for a little getaway...till SUNDAY.  

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY!

I'm a little excited to get away.  This will be my 3rd year of going to a scrapbooking/Great Beginnings retreat, just a couple of hours away from tiny town.  

It's fabulous.  Great food (which I don't have to cook or even think about,) two wonderful friends to chat endlessly with, times of prayer and reflection, AND scrapbooking.

What?!?  You didn't know I scrapbook?!?  Hmmm...I never talk about it?!?  Yeah...that's because I went on this retreat last January, scrapped my brains out, and then started this little blog in February.  Guess what I have not done since last January....scrapbook.  

But, I have unrealistic expectations high hopes of getting caught up.  Even better than that, is just taking a brief break from reality...with friends.  

Maybe you could all say a quick prayer for my hubby as he becomes a single dad/pastor trying to prepare two sermons for Sunday kinda guy...with 3 little boys to help ;)

PS - I'm fully aware anything I've cleaned or organized the past 2 weeks will be undone in my absence...it's the price I pay...and it's totally worth it.  Amen.

  3. Have a great time -- you so deserve it! I love to scrapbook but don't get to very often b/c of the lack of realistic space and time, but someday . . .

    Do share about your time away when you get back!

  4. Hi Sarah! I love your blog... been "stalking" for some time now, but haven't commented until today! I also was an avid "scrapper" until I started blogging! I feel your pain! My husband is out of town for a while, and I've convinced myself that I'll catch up on the scrapbooking. We'll see... Hope you have a great weekend!

  6. Have a GREAT time! A whole weekend of just scrapping...it's better than a dream.

    Don't worry about the house. I'm sure it will clean itself in your absence (spelling?)...NOT!

  9. Have fun! I scrapbook, too. In theory. I actually set a goal this year to get two pages done a month. I think I should be able to achieve that. Right?!

    I'm the same way with scrapbooking. That's why I go to snapfish.com now. Soooo much easier, lol.

  16. i hope you have a blast this weekend with your friends! i think every women should do a girls weekend atleast once a year... its a must!

    i scrapbooked my heart out for like 3 years, then baby #2 came along & i don't have 1 page of him. very sad, i know. i still take a lot of pictures & in the process of getting them organized into books. big job! but what i do now instead of scrapbooking is the photobooks from shutterfly, snapfish, even wal-mart, cvs has them. not tried them. i have only used shutterfly & snapfish. i LOVE them! i do one a year for each of my boys. they love looking at them. and i love not having to buy paper, glue, stickers! ha just a thought you might want to look into. :)
