My Weekend.

My long weekend was great! It's always a little hard to go back to work after being off for a few days. On Friday we headed down to Key Largo to go snorkeling. It was a good thing we went in the morning, because a storm started rolling in at the end of our water time. We had to swim over some waves to get back to the boat, then develop our sea legs REALLY quick to even be able to stand up, with the boat rocking so much. It was really fun, though. But anyways, here are a couple photos for your viewing pleasure. I'll post more of these later when I can work on them at home.

This is El Capitan, the boat that took us to the reef to go snorkeling.

My Dad being a goofball. This must be where I get it from.

I love taking pictures like this, and Chad had the perfect sunglasses to do it. My Dad and me reflected in Chad's glasses.

Chad and Daddy checking out the scenery as we head back in on the boat.

On Saturday, my Dad and I drove up to Arcadia for a day of Antiquing. Chad stayed home on this one....antiquing's not really his 'thing'. I picked up a few small things, all for craft type projects. I only spent about $15. The tin is going to make for a nice shabby mini-album. I'll be taking the backings off the earrings to use the flowers as embellishments. The lady I bought those from GAVE me the purple flower. We had lunch at a cute little cafe that lets you write on the walls, but I didn't get a photo of that.

Yesterday, we took Daddy out to lunch at our favorite Mexican place called Cilantro Tamale's. They have YUMMY rice! After that, we stopped by Borders, because I wanted to see if they had the Chicken Soup for the Scrapbooker's Soul book. This is the second store I've been to that shows it in stock, but then no one can find it in the store! No biggie, I'll just order it. I got this Digital Scrapbooking magazine instead. I'm not giving up my paper, but these magazines are THE BEST thing for learning photoshop. I always learn the best tips and tricks from scrapbooking magazines.

We then stopped by Wal-Mart for a couple car-washing items, and I just couldn't resist picking up a couple more things. These flowers are HUGE. Can't wait to take them apart tonight. All the layers are different shapes, too! The bone-shaped tags and jewel flowers were just too cute to pass up.

Oh, and here's a picture of that tape I got at Target last week, as I know a couple people wanted to see it! Sorry for the blurriness of the photo.

Last but not least, here's an awesome copper bracelet from my Dad. I saw him wearing it, and asked him if he made it (which he did...he makes all KINDS of cool stuff!), and he took it off and put it on me! Sweet.

Okay! That's all for now. Daddy is still in town for today, and I'm hoping to do some portraits of him this evening. Lets just hope the weather cooperates for the sake of good lighting!
