This and that . . .

Happy Monday! I had a full and busy weekend. Here is a little bit of what I was up to:

Saturday was the Junior League retreat. I had such a fabulous time getting to know everyone better and learning about the history and things we do in the Orlando chapter. During the afternoon we went on a bus tour and saw some of the places we'll be volunteering at as well as meeting locations and headquarters. It was a lot of fun! My first General Membership meeting is tomorrow and we're having a social beforehand so we can all go to our first meeting together. I am excited to meet some more active members and see what a meeting is like!  


After I got home from the retreat I watched Miss America. I was beyond excited at all of the dancing that went on in the talent portion!!!!! I absolutely loved Miss Florida and Miss Michigan's dances. Florida's was so cute and Michigan had some fabulous leaps and turns. Someone also did a tap dance that I loved, but I cannot remember which contestant it was. Miss Hawaii's native dance was also fabulous. I was surprised that Miss Indiana won, but wow was she shocked and thrilled. I liked how they made it a little more fun and upbeat this year. Did anyone else tune in?


Sunday was spent working at an outdoor golf event. It was nice to be outside for the day and I had fun hanging out and getting some sun.


Last night was craft time. I bought a wooden frame and wooden letter "A" from Michael's and painted some stripes on. I then painted the letter and glued that and a ribbon on. Pretty simple and fun to do! 


All in all it was a busy, but fun weekend. I'm looking forward to watching the Bachelor tonight!!

The frame turned out very cute. I've often thought about painting one too!

At first I only caught the end of the pageant due to a late recruitment practice, and I wasn't sure how I felt about Miss Indiana. However, after catching it on repeat she is really growing on me and I think she is quite beautiful! And her reaction was worth it! :)

I always enjoy the pageant. Love looking at their dresses!

Love your frame! I'm crafting myself tonight, we'll see if the results are as cute as yours!

I am glad you enjoyed your JL filled Saturday!! I cannot wait until I start in May!I watched Miss America too and I think it was Miss Iowa that tapped danced. I was not too shocked that Miss Indiana was as she was always the judges favorite on the reality show. I like her personality, but her dresses were pretty horrid in my opinion!

I also loved Miss America this year! The dancing was fab. I was bummed Miss Michigan didn't make top 5 though. I also loved Miss FL! :)

Yay for the JL!! Glad to hear that you had a great time at the retreat! Love the craft project... everyone is getting crafty lately. I might just have to join in on this trend!
