Week in the Life: Sunday

On Sunday, I finally had a chance to relax and chill out. With the pressure of the wedding gone and done, and family obligations abated, and the end of the WIL project happening, I felt like a big weight was off my shoulders. I mean, I had laundry to do, but other than that... looking pretty good for the old to-do list.

I treated myself by going down to Southcenter mall for a little good old fashioned retail therapy. For those of y'all not from around here, it's like a shopping mecca. Among many other stores, you will find in close proximity: a Michaels, a JoAnns, a really good GoodWill, a Tuesday Morning, a Best Buy, several Starbucks, a regular mall including things like Torrid, Nordstroms and Macys and other "big" chain clothing stores, a Borders and a Barnes and Noble, a Target, a couple of movie theaters and an Ikea. (Jealous yet?)

Basically, if you want it, they have it. (Oh, American consumerism...)

Anyway, I started my morning by checking out the sales at Old Navy (where I scored a cute linen top for $6). I then grabbed some coffee at the 'Bux before swinging by my favorite stamp shop Impress. And since Paper Zone was practically next door I had to stop by there too.

It's a dangerous place.

Anyway... after I got home, I futzed around on the internet for a bit, and then cleaned and organized some things in my room and work area, and then worked on editing photos for a while.

And that was my week.


Now you see why I have no time to scrap? Seriously. Okay, well the whole nephew/friend's wedding thing really were some out of the ordinary events, but I hope this explains a little bit why my blog can get so shabby and neglected.

I suppose there could be less trips to the mall, and more blogging. But I'm having fun. ;)

I'm really glad I got to document this period in my life. And now I just have to order the photos and put my book together. YAY!

I promise to post as soon as I have scrappies to share. Which should be soon. :)

Hope you are well and if you've been documenting your week too, in whatever way, let me know. I'd love to see what other people are doing.

Speaking of, I really need to get back on the Flickr bandwagon. Ooh, my scones are done. Gotta go.

I love all your scrapping goodness!!

I've really enjoyed your week in the life pics and stories, those ones of the scrap / paper stores are to die for. There is no where in Australia ( well that I have seen) that has all the great brands like that on the shelf. I buy about 95% of my stuff online and then get hit with stupendous shipping?!?@

eek - i have to organise my week in the life. I'm a first timer, its a bit of a mess .......
