Technically last week was the long weekend in Canada; however, I had another long weekend due to having to change my EDO days at work so I got a bonus long weekend. If only every weekend was a long weekend...
Papa Bears big 50th birthday was Friday. My parents are camping in the Valley with friends so they had supper and drinks at the camper. My sister and I did up 50 presents for his 50th birthday, just like we had for our Mom and took it down to the camper.
|Part of the 50 presents for his 50th (I'll do a whole post on it later this week)|
|Checking out his new shirts. This one reads: 'It's my 50th Year! Fetch me a beer!' (Purchased at Spencers). He got a kick out of the bag they came in too.. (also purchased at Spencers).|
|This was everyone's favourite part. An inflatable walker (Purchased at Hobby Lobby). The 'old folks' had a lot of laughs with that thing...|
|While he blew out his candles, Kirby taste tested to make sure it was ok...|
Rae's big dance recital was Saturday. She had two performances - an afternoon and an evening and we attended the evening one. She did a really good job and looked so adorable up on stage!

Most of Sunday was spent doing a thorough cleaning of the basement and getting some spring cleaning done. I went through a bunch of items and have a pile of stuff to put into my aunt's garage sale this weekend and a pile to bring to the Centre. It feels so good to clear up some clutter. I've been accused of being a pack rat before but I'm working on it!
I've been having really bad sciatic nerve pain again so by the time evening rolled around I was really sore. I sat down on the couch for a break and turned on Netflix. I've heard so many good things about Scandal but had never got into watching it. I saw that it was on Netflix and decided to check it out. I watched the entire first season in one sitting and now I NEED to get my hands on Season 2! I am in LOVE with this show! Why do we have to wait until fall for new episodes?! :(
|I was sad that the first season only had 7 episodes but it was also probably a good thing or else I wouldn't have slept at all that night!|
|The girls were at the house in the afternoon and I was teaching them about important information aka: who the Spice Girls are. The bottom picture is Rae being Scary Spice|
My little bro, SIL and I headed to MB for our tattoo appointments. This Friday was supposed to be my EDO day but because of a work meeting I had to switch the days around.
|Newest tattoo. Not completely finished- I'll be adding to it later this year|
|I've been looking EVERYWHERE for this wine and finally found it at a liquor store in Brandon. This and the fact that there is a brand new Target in Brandon means I will be making lots of trips to Brandon in the near future...|
|Got home to see that the package I've been waiting for had arrived! My project life album. Now I have to get caught up on 2012 so I can order my 2013 kit|
That's my weeekend in a nutshell. Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!
