Movin’ and Groovin’…

It was a long weekend, but a very good one. Here is the recap:

– Thursday night: Went to Kathy’s house to spend the night, working cards to swap on Saturday.

– Friday: Lunch in downtown with Gayle, our Stampin’ Up! upline. A shopping stop at Sephora at Memorial City mall. (Mmmm… Sephora.) Drive to San Antonio, and check in the nice posh Hotel Valencia. (Expedia rocks!) Walk to the Rivercenter Mall, then back along the Riverwalk to have dinner at Casa Rio. Check out the Alamo. Stop by Hard Rock Cafe so Kathy could get her San Antonio t-shirt. Return to the hotel, pamper myself with a good facial and a loooong shower. Finish stamping my cards.

– Saturday: Early start, had to check out of the hotel before the conference. Walk to the Convention Center and check in. Got a new adorable stamp set that will be in the 2005-2006 Stampin’ Up! catalog that comes out this summer. Swapped cards with others at the convention. (500 stampers!) Listen to the seminar, learn cool new things, find lots of inspiration in all the things I saw. Very tired by the end of the day. Walk back to the hotel to get the car and drive back to Houston. Picked my car up from Kathy’s house, headed home. Bummed when I got home to discover that my favorite pillow was left in Kathy’s car.

– Sunday: Slept very poorly without the good pillow. Slept some more. Caught up on some e-mail. Got ready for Scout Sunday. Drove across Houston so Jason could receive his Ad Altare Dei award. Dinner at Fuddruckers. Home to catch up on more e-mail. Mastered my new French phrases. Je suis belle!

– This morning: Sorted mail, prepared to pay bills. Cleaned out part of the closet; time to get ready for another garage sale. Sorted my yarn. Bagged up some things I need to return to the store. Clean, clean, clean. Clean up the Helpdesk. Clean out spam e-mail. When I get a lunch break, it is going to be time to KNIT! Wheee!

There are pictures from San Antonio in the Flickr sidebar, and I’ll post some more later tonight, including a scan of my cute card that I made, and photos of the knitted goods!
