This weekend...

*I made this little card for our next birthday girl at the Poppy Ink boards:

Inside, it says, "To you!" I should have scanned that too because it was done in cute little felt pieces. Oh, well. It is already in the mail, and on its way!

*I took Hazel and Luka to Raleigh to go to Build-A-Bear. Hazel had a blast making a Valentine doggy! And, I got to eat at The Cheesecake favorite! I had the yummy Thai chicken pasta! Everything I've ever eaten there is wonderful, but I always seem to go for that dish. I also made a quick run into Williams-Sonoma, where I bought some of these yummy homemade heart-shaped marshmallows:

*Our French bulldog puppy was born on Friday at 2:10 p.m. (Pictures to come soon!)

*I found out that they will be opening a Forever 21 at the big mall in Raleigh. Yipee! It's my favorite store, and now I don't have to make the 4 hour drive to Charlotte to go. No, if only we could get an Urban Outfitters...

*I also made this little heart-shaped ribbon wreath for the Poppy Ink birthday girl. It didn't turn out quite as cute as I had envisioned, but it's okay.

*I spent a great deal of time racking my brain for an idea on my next submission to the SIStv Fashionista try-outs. I can't believe I even made it through the first round! I feel honored to be included with so many talented ladies! And, I think I have finally come up with an idea for my next submission that will really stand out. I'm hoping it turns out how I have pictured it in my mind!

*I watched Wedding Daze:

Two thumbs DOWN! That movie sucked. I have no idea what possessed me to rent it on my Netflix. I'm all for silly movies...I needed a laugh. But, that movie was so stupid, it was painful to watch. Super Bad is on its way. I'm really hoping it is good for a few laughs.

I guess that about sums up my weekend. Did anyone else do anything fun?
