So Much Fun Saturday

I had a crazy day yesterday! I got to spend the day with some fabulous ladies scrapbooking at the Heidi Swapp event, from there I ran home, changed and then scooted off to a bachlorette party for about 2 hours. I was then off to Kara's to hang out and do a little scrapbooking. I hung out there for about 2 hours too and then I decided it was time to head home and go to bed-I don't even remember my head hitting the pillow!
Here we are hanging out with Heidi! The day was so much fun and we did so many cool projects and discovered a few new fabby techniques. I'll post pictures of them as soon as I add some photos to the layouts. At the end of the day, the event was over for the most part and people started clearing out, Heidi then talked about House of 3 and what they're all about, then a little about blogging and why she scrapbooks. It was very intimate, incredibly motivating and so so inspiring. It was one person talking and a group of women totally relating to a woman we all admire. Thinking to myself- we're not so different after all. It was one of those "ahh, I get it" moments for me, I don't think I was alone in that feeling. So thank you, thank you to Treasured for giving me the chance to see her and participate in this day. I am more grateful than you van even understand! Thank you to Heidi and to Talia and Kim who helped make this all happen!
Here's a few pictures from yesterday:

I was driving back to Kara's when I realized we have a huge Stanley Cup just off Calgary Trail South. Huh? I whipped into the parking lot and we posed it up. We laughed like crazy and though "How have we never noticed this huge thing before?" Good Times!

Then off to the bachlorette party for my very good friend Dar. I almost fell over when I saw her. She hates pink! Like super hates pink and her friends had her decked out in it- priceless!

Then off to Kara's to hang out with some scrapbooking friends! I made one layout before I became so very tired. Here's Chantel in an action shot making us a wicked yummy pecan, grape salad! I wish I looked as adorable as she does cooking.

Today I am excited to hang out with my hunny, I never get to spend Sundays with him and never never Sunday nights as he's always either playing hockey, ball hockey or coaching it. Tonight he's planning on BBQing the hugest steaks ever- I am SO excited! I perhaps will be indulging in a refreshing Mojito while he cooks for me. Sounds like a weekend to throw into my Top 5 best weekends?
Later Friends!
