Long Weekend/ Family Fun/ 2 Lists

This weekend was a long weekend... can't go wrong with a Family Fun day and Valentines on the same weekend. Not that I do anything for Valentine's Day for anyone other than my kids, but they enjoyed it.

After an emergency run on Valentine's for a second stuff Dachshund (cause my kids were fighting over the one I got) and breakfast, I actually managed to buy some awesome material for my daughter's DracuBecca Dress. If you don't know who that is there here's the rundown. Draculaura and Rebecca Steam from Monster High get fussed... hence the movie name Freaky Fusion. The oldest is having a Draculaura B-Day so I decided to make her a dress for it. It's turning out pretty awesome, just some finishing touches. Once done I'll post a pic :).

We also did some fun family things at the Guelph Civic Museum. Which made for a great Family Day.

Now other than that it was a busy weekend of Friends and Family and Events. So I'm behind again on Lists. I'm glad I did my weekend ones on Friday, so here's Monday and Tuesday for you. Also I am hoping to finish writing and send my new Penpal's Letter. YAY Letters.

3) “Sometimes we know in our bones what we really need to do, but we're afraid to do it. Taking a chance and stepping beyond the safety of the world we've always known is the only way to grow, though and without risk there is no reward.”

I think those 5 are some of the best. I have a whole book of quotes but sometimes you need to stick to a few simple ideas. 

So until Tomorrow :)

Keep on Geeking on.
