I'm A Winner...Part Deux!

well, well, well. this has been quite the little cliff hanger huh? ok, i obviously give myself too much credit but really, for anyone who actually reads this here little blog...i meant to blog about this last night. but i went to bed. i was wiped out after sitting and doing not so much selling at the italian fest yesterday. but let's see. winning. ah yes. there were so many ways that i won this past weekend. friday, we took a lovely trip to the home of good friends and played in their creek.

saturday morning i got some great deals at staples. did you know with their teacher's rewards card you can get more than the regular maximum of their sale or free stuff. that means i got ten packs of pencils and ten rulers for free. today i'll be heading out for free folders, erasers and pencil cases.

saturday afternoon i had lunch at this lovely and oh so tasty restaurant with two of my favorite lovely ladies from our homeschool group. we were supposed to attend a lapbooking day but it was cancelled so, we opted for lunch instead. we had a great afternoon with alot of laughter. it was such a blessing.

and saturday evening i was a real winner with the homily i heard at mass. but more on that later.

i suppose the winning you were possibly looking for was this...i was so shocked on saturday when we went to pick up our projects that i had won first place. yippee! i think even cooler than the ribbon was how proud the kids were of me. they were genuinely happy for me and they haven't stopped telling people about it since.
