Hi all! First I want to say, I love blogging and all my new friends! Thanks for all the nice and fun comments! Isn't this fun????
The Covered Bridge Festival was fun but guess what? I didn't get ONE flippin' picture of ONE covered bridge! Why??? It was sooo crowded, hot, crowded and HOT! I got very few pictures! I'm sooo sorry cuz I promised beautiful pictures of beautiful covered bridges! Ugh..But, guess what else...I'm going to head back out there this weekend! So, I'll try again!
Will this satisfy your need for a photo? She was an absolute doll! Her parents had a booth and I asked them if I could take her picture. Cute! I've always wondered to myself what it would be like to live with an Amish family for one week. To lead such a simple life and want for nothing. Has anyone else ever thought about it??
So, we walked, shopped, and walked some more. We had the worlds worst lemon shake-ups EVER! But, we had some very good fresh kettle corn. MMMMM! I purchased 600 count sheets for $20! A very nice shade of chocolate brown...we'll see how long they last. I can't imagine TRUE 600 count sheets for $20! But I bought them right up because I love a bargain! I also bought a really cute giraffe print travel bag. I love it! It will probably only last me about 2 years but it was also only $15! Love the print!!!
I also bought my Dad some sugar free chocolate walnut fudge! He was in heaven!!!
We were there for about 4 hours and then headed home.
Up early on Saturday for Maeci's basketball game and the girl was on fire!!! She made 5 baskets and was all smiles!!! My Dad, Jacob (the teen) and his girlfriend were there cheering her on. She was a HUGE show off! We lost by 4 but she had so much fun!! And that's what matters, right?
Maeci and I spent the day together shopping after the game. Now if you knew Maeci and I in person, you would know why it took us 6 lllloooonnngggg hours to find a few winter clothes and shoes for her! Ugh..it's seriously ridiculous. We have to touch and feel EVERYTHING in sight! I was told that I come by it honestly, my great Grandmother was the same! It's not my fault! I was born this way!
So, we shopped and we shopped. We found awesome sales on clothes and shoes for her and she is now set for at least another couple of months...until she has another growth spurt! She's killing me! Now, of course Jake NEEDS new shoes...it's always something and never ends. We got home around 7:30 and then I had to clean the house for company on Sunday. I went to bed around midnight. I need some love for all the hard work I've put in this weekend!
Went to church this morning, great sermon! Wish I could type it all out for you! Then home to fix a FABULOUS Sunday dinner for 12 family members! WHAT? Everyone who knows me right now has their mouth open with a surprised look on their face...Keli doesn't cook! I despise cooking BUT I do make a mean pot of chicken and noodles! Come on over and I'll fix you some! We had C n' N, green beans, bread and my sister, who loves to cook, brought garlic mashed taters...YUM! And she loved my chicken and noodles, which is a huge compliment to me cuz she's a great cook!
Cleaned up the kitchen and now I'm finishing up this recap of my weekend, which I'm sure by now has bored you all to tears. Please don't cry, I will try to come up with a more exciting post this week!
Oh, and one more thing, if you remember, a while back, I wrote about being told how much I resemble Sarah Palin. I know you all remember every post that I type, don't ya?? I was told again by family that I look like her....maybe I should go on the road...
