Weekend Recap - Lil' Wrangler edition!

Weekends without Aggie football are SO different than weekends with a game! Normally town is buzzing with an extra 50,000 or so additonal people but by the time the bye weekend comes around, our town feels almost deserted.  And, don't even think about trying to find a sitter on this weekend!  The majority of Aggies high-tail it out of here to re-charge so they can make it till Thanksgiving break!

We had somewhat of a "quiet" weekend.  Here's a little photo recap of what kept us busy!

Weekend Recap - First Watch, College Station, TX
 I met a friend for lunch at First Watch on Friday.  Loved everything about this sweet little restaurant!  It's only open till 2:30pm each day and they are serious about fresh food made to order.

 Meanwhile, Hope was enjoying Pajama Day at school!

 Friday afternoons are for snuggles!

 The boys headed off to the high school football game but the girls opted to stay home.  Later this month, I'm helping with the Kindergarten Halloween "fall" party so the girls assisted me by assembling the make-your-own-monster kits!

 I {might} have bribed them with cookies!

 Meanwhile, I was out in the garage cleaning up this filing cabinet for my new and improved craft closet!  Did you know these things sell for $400 brand new?!  UGH!  Thankfully, Shelly helped me out and pointed me in the direction of surplus at Texas A&M.  I'm the proud owner of a surplused $40 filing cabinet!!!

 The moon was so pretty on Friday night that we had to stop and take a pic!

Saturday morning soccer games were pushed back an hour because of rain showers the previous day.  Due to overlapping activities, Mike and Holden went with Hope while I went with Colby.  I was bummed that I missed seeing Miss Priss score two goals!

Lil' Wranglers is a Country and Western dance team made up of grade school aged kiddos.  This is Colby's second year and he absolutely loves it!  His partner this year is Shay and they have lots of fun dancing together!

 On Saturday morning, they danced at an area elementary school's fall festival.

After their performance, they rushed out to practice for yet another performance later that evening.

 Barn Dance is the Junior/Lil'/Elite Wranglers yearly event where you finally get to see the new dances for the year.  The dances last year were great but this year I was absolutely WOWed!  The choreography is amazing and you can tell the kids love the routines.  I would love to show you a video but we can't share till after competition.  You know, we don't want anyone stealing our ideas! ;)

Our favorite Lil' Wrangler couple before they hit the stage!

 After all the teams dance, they open up the dance floor for a Boot Dance.  For a small donation, you can dance with a Wrangler.  This is definitely the part I look forward to the most!!!  Colby has grown so much taller this past year and dancing with him was so easy!  He's going to make some girl so happy one day!

He waltzed me around the dance floor to one of my favorite George Strait songs...

I don't get a chance to hang out with just my boys very often but when I do I'm in absolute heaven!  They love to give me a hard time but I know it's just how they show they care about me. :)

I spent most of Sunday working here...  It's been a while since I posted on my KonMari journey but I promise, I'm still working on it!  I got stuck on Weeks 11 & 12 - crafts/hobbies.  This area in my life was terrible!  But, I'm committed and can see it starting to come together.  You'll want to stick around because you'll never believe the before/after of this transformation!

My new-to-me filing cabinet installed and waiting to be filled!

I'm still not finished but it's taking shape!
While I'm Waiting...
I still need to label all the boxes...

but I was too busying geeking out over my ribbon storage.  Sadly, I can't tell you how much stuff I have double or even triple bought - simply because I didn't know I already owned it.  No more!  Now everything has its place and is visible!
While I'm Waiting...
It was late but I was determined to get the files into the filing cabinet.  I haven't scrapbooked (do people even do that anymore?!) since Hope was born and these folders contain all the stuff I don't want to forget.  Maybe when my craft room/office is complete, I'll get to work completing some albums!!! #wishfulthinking

There was a lot of dancing and a little bit of organizing over the weekend.  All in all, a pretty great weekend - even if the Aggies didn't play!

I hope you have an extraordinary week!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Gig 'em and God bless!

  5. I've made the switch from traditional scrapbooking to Project Life and have been slowly decluttering and cleaning out my stash to reflect the stuff I'm actually going to use. I've been organizing my paper and it's embarrassing how many sheets I have doubles of or completely forgot existed!

    1. I love to do digital scrapbooking but I also love memorabilia - ticket stubs, artwork, etc. I LOVED Creative Memories and still have so.much.stuff! I'm hoping to use it all up (or the majority) and then move to something a little more, well, current! :) I'll definitely look into Project Life! And, yes, I know the embarrassment well of seeing the excess... Really working on that! Thanks so much for stopping by!
