A scrappy weekend!

My fun weekend started on Friday as I traveled to St. Louis to meet up with friends and scrapbook for 3 days!! It was a great weekend and hope to do this again in the future!

Here is my luggage & scrappy supplies:

Friday night was the arrival for the Scrapology event. I drove and I am not used to all the highways that St. Louis has but I did okay this time! One of the girls I meet up with lives in the area which is a big help with finding things! I also use my GPS system which I am not sure how I traveled and found things before getting it! After we all arrived, we scrapped for awhile and then went to dinner together. We had Mexican and it was good! I can't remember the name of the place though! Then back to the hotel for a night of scrapping!!

The crop room:
Our table:

Saturday we scrapped the day away but had a late lunch/early dinner to Fritz's! They make root beer and it was sooo good! It was a fun place to go. I have a big camera so I didn't bring it with me so I have no pics. ;-( I need me a good point and shoot camera to keep in my purse for times like this!

My plan for the weekend was to add pictures to the LO's I had done at the LSS. I was having a hard time getting pictures to fit the way they had them planned on the LO. I got pictures on a few of them but I was hoping to get the whole album done! I really need to sit down at my computer and be able to resize and print. I also brought a bunch of page kits and did scrap some of my Paris/London pics. I am slowly getting this album done! I didn't get as much done as I was hoping but I enjoyed the company I had!

I was proud of myself that I didn't go shopping at the vendors at the crop and I didn't sign up for any classes. I normally have a weakness for these things but was strong!! When I was getting ready for Scrapology, I have to many kits to put together at home. I need to start using more of my stash. But I did have to go to Archivers while I was in St. Louis as there isn't one in my town. St. Louis one is the closest to me which is a few hours away! It is always fun to visit that store!

Sunday, my roomie and I slept in a little. We finally got to the crop about 11am and ended up leaving about 2pm. Not much scrapping on Sunday. I was feeling tired even after having about 8 hours of sleep! Then we did do the Archivers shopping then we headed home.

What I got done on Sunday:

It was the tax free weekend so I have been wanting a MacBook for quite some time. After my PC laptop troubles in May and talking at length with someone about what an apple would do, I really wanted one!! I called Best Buy in my town to see if they were having any special financing and they were!!! 18 months with 0% interest!! They even had extended hours so I was able to get back in time to get me my new toy!! I have a 13" MacBook Pro and trying to figure it out!! I am sooo excited about the battery power - I have been on here for about 1 hour and I have 7 hours of battery life still!! My laptop would be dead by now. I have Photoshop CS3 on my PC laptop and need to figure out what to do about that. I might need to search ebay to see if I can find it cheap!

There are little things I am so used to on my PC that doesn't work on my Mac. I saw on the apple website that I can take tutorials to help me learn my Mac. I am happy I saw that!! I am looking forward to learn more and fall in love with a Mac!

My new computer!

I got a hot pink cover for my Mac and love it!!

I have lots of updating to do on my blog of some events that have happened in the last couple of weeks. Some sad and some fun stuff! I am going to be working tonight with no sleep. I usually will take the day off after traveling but I didn't this time. I needed to go pick up my pup from being kenneled at the vets so it messed up my day sleep schedule. I just hope it is a good night!!
