Memorial Day weekend

Oh post long weekend comas... how I dread thee. As if work wasn't tough enough to get through, I'm now sitting here with a laundry list of things to do... yet I'm in my PJs ready to call it a day. Sigh.

Friday was the only evening in a 6 day span that I was able to see Clay for more than 10 minutes. We had our usual date night which consisted of dinner at Crapplebees and a Netflix movie. Yeah, that's how us old folk roll.

Saturday Clay had a golf outing and went both bass and bluegill fishing. I went into Muskegon early to drop Zora off at Mama Z's and then met with Pastor Kevin from Blue Lake Community Church about the website redesign I'm doing for them. Real nice guy and I'm excited to finally get rollin' on this project. Went back over to my parents to swim/layout. Well, actually I sat around for 5 1/2 hours in jeans and a sweatshirt waiting for the sun to come out. The clouds eventually disappeared and got some sun before going to the Station with the folks. Zora and I went home and Clay came rolling in sometime during the wee hours of the morning.

Pups dig carrots.

Kissin' friends... kinda.

We're all hot. 

Sunday, I was up bright and early to participate in my first craft fair with Ashley. She sold her jewelry and I sold/marketed my special dates and birth announcement prints. I have a good feeling about how many business cards and order forms people took... even for it being such a small fair. Even had a couple orders right there on the spot. Head over to my Etsy site people... prints are up and waiting to be ordered. :) Went to Grandma's house afterwards to hang by the pool with family and grill out.

3rd shifters up waaaay past their bed time results in shananigans like this...

I spent a full 12 hours on Monday prepping for our garage sale. Ironed clothes, priced everything, laid out tables... gah. Mom came over after dropping Dad off at the airport to give me a hand. Luckily we got everything about 99% done. If you're in the Holland area on Saturday 9-4, we had 8 family members contribute to this garage sale... it's pretty outrageous. Check out the Craigslist ad for a fairly comprehensive list of everything that's up for grabs... cheap.

Two days of bathing suit wearing this weekend encouraged humiliated me into going to buy a tankini today. Um, tankini makers of the world, there are women out there taller than 5' 6". If a tankini falls 2 inches ABOVE my belly button.... it kinda defeats the purpose of wearing one. No one, I mean NO ONE, is going to want to see this belly bobbing in the water in the coming months. I finally found one that's meant to mold you and give you a more desirable shape. Yeah that's great and all, but at least it goes down to my butt. Hoooooowever... it has built in cup support. Normally, YAY! But pregnant me has a slight fear of looking like a pudgy porn star at family pool parties by mid summer. Sorry fam, but in the changing room battle of belly vs. boobies... boobies won. Shield your eyes.
