I love vacation! After the stress of making the trip down state to visit my parents, Josh and I have done nothing but relaxing and shopping. The trip down was AWFUL! I got out of class a half hour late...not quite the way I wanted to start a 4 hour drive. Then it was snowing pretty hard almost the whole way down and in some places the roads were horrible. We were going to stop in Watertown for the night, but once we got there and got on the highway, the roads cleared up. Then they got bad again so we were going to stop in Syracuse for the night, but of course they cleared up again. Near Cortland they got bad again, but by then we were so close to the trip being over that we just kept going. The 4 hour drive turned into a 5 hour drive and we didn't get in until after midnight. 

We have definitely made up for the stress of that trip though. On Friday we stayed home all day and lounged around the house. We went out for dinner and a movie later that night with some friends some college and had a blast. Yesterday we went shopping. Josh bought a hi-def projector in the going out of business sale at Circuit City and I got some good deals on some scrapping necessities I needed. I spent a couple hours at my mom's office helping her answer phones and give info to clients if she was busy. That night we went to the mall and I was able to exchange a pair of shoes I had bought a while ago in Watertown. Today Josh and I took my mom out to breakfast and we went to Target and Bed, Bath, and Beyond. We had a nice evening at home and my mom made lasagna for a yummy dinner with my parents, sister, niece, and grandparents. Not quite sure of plans for tomorrow yet, but we are thinking of visiting one of my aunts, maybe going to a movie, and I should probably do some work. 

OK, on to scrapping news. I have LOTS to show you, but since this post is getting pretty long, I'll only show you the Valentine's card I made for Josh. This is the card I did based on the sketch for Sketch Saturday at Sisterhood of Scrap. I have these journaling blocks from one of the monthly kits that I get and I knew this block was perfect for this card. 

One last thing before I go...if you want a chance to win some YUMMY blog candy, make sure to check out Carla's blog. She always has the BEST cards and great, fun giveaways so make sure to stop by. 
OK, it's time to go and watch my favorite show on my favorite channel. (HGTV, which I don't get at home so it's a real treat to watch it while I'm out of town.) Hope everyone had a great weekend are enjoying the holiday weekend!
