Two Weekends of Girl Fun...

I'm a mom.
I'm a wife.
But sometimes, ya just gotta get out with the girls and have a little Me Time!
I'm such a lucky girl that I got to do it two weekends in a row!
(kisses to Bob for sure!)

So, a bit of backstory...
I'm dancing as a Dallas Defenders cheerleader! Its a minor league football team & we raise funds for kids charities. As part of the whole cheerleader gig, our director set up a big photo-shoot for cheerleader calendar! Say what? Yeah, a calendar...a Swimsuit Calendar! LOL :) The photo shoot was a huge, fancy-schmancy mansion in a gorgeous neighborhood! It was full-on with make-up artists, hair stylists and photo set-ups...the whole shebang! :) I did the shots in our cheerleader uniform, but not the swimsuit ones. Too many issues with the swimsuit stuff for me, so I opted out of that one happily! :) But I want to show you the pics of my bestest girlies all done up, looking hotter than hot! :)

So, there's us in all our glory. Apparently, I coined a new term o'Staci...Hotness on a Stick! Don't know why, or where it came from, but it became the catchphrase of the day. Of course, if I could show you the pics of all those hotties (& all the other chicks there) walking around in bikinis and heels, you'd understand better why the term was flowing like water up in that place! LOL :) For now, you'll just have to use your imagination b/c those pics aren't mine to share! ;)

Weekend #2:
Yesterday, Ms. Marla organized a whole day of scrapping fun for us! :) She picked me up at 8:45 and we headed out for the day to shop till we dropped!

First up, the Crafty Scrapper in Waxahatchie! I've heard so many fabulous things about this store (& they were soooo generous and great at GASC for my Jenni Bowlin class). The store...TOTALLY lived up to its reputation! So much product in a huge, charming setting! :) Helpful folks too...they were telling me about the Lisa Pace class coming soon ( I got lots of goodies and we were off to a fantastic start!! Happy, happy, joy, joy! :)

Next door, there is a gorgeous home decor shop called the Dove's Nest. Marla and I ran around wishing that we'd instantly win the lottery so that we could just pack up the whole store in the van and bring it home! There were some deals to be found, but we were good and saved our budget for the scrap stuff we'd planned. But believe me, I'm saving up for some home stuff for our next trip to Waxahatchie! :)

We ran around to a few more stores...that Marla knows the name of and that escape me right now. Sorry.

Then we hit Gotta Scrap in Rockwall. Lots more yumminess to be had. Got some little Creative Cafe tickets that ended up being a whole big thing. Marla and I ended up laughing ourselves giddy over the whole thing and it has now become forever known as The Great Ticket Debaucle! Its gonna be all okay...I'm sure we'll get it straightened out and I can't wait to play with the cutie little journaling tickets! LOL :)

When we finally got home, we started cropping the night away (with Bob just shaking his head at us for the most part!) LOL :) After digging through some goodies from my spinner rack, somehow we got into the little AC chipboard animals. Why exactly are there pigs in there? What are you supposed to scrap with those? This was what we pondered as the hour approached midnight! What followed was some *really* inappropriate (& very funny) jokes about a tour to the Owen Farm (think sausage), and lots of oinks and snorting. Ultimately, I think we mixed up some sky paper, a whole AC chipboard pig family, and some Heidi Swapp ghost wings and got a little diarama going of..."When Pigs Fly". Yeah, it might be one of those things that you had to be there for, but we were rolling on the floor and had a super-hard ab workout from all the laughing! :)

So that was my 2 weekends of crazy girlie fun! And I absolutely LOVED every single moment of it! Thanks to my dance girls for the first weekend, thanks to Marla for the second weekend, and thanks to Bob for handling things on the homefront for me to disappear for a while! :)
