My BFF Tracy went home this morning, I mean she is already at home asleep in her own bed with her cutie patootie hubby Steve, who I am sure is so darned happy to have her back, I bet he fell asleep with a smile on his face…get your mind out of the gutter…you know what I mean!
We did have the best time and did so much, but then I think, well we didn't have carna asada french fries at Filiberto's, she didn't get to meet my friend Teri and Sharon. We wanted to go see the new Ryan Reynolds movie, but the dang thing don't come out till the end of the month. She missed Eric cooking supper, cause Sara who helps him is coming Wednesday and not Tuesday now.
Look what it was too. Eric's famous Fruit Cookie (they keep trying to do a different desert, and we keep saying no…), and tonight he tried a new main course, Eric's Special Spaghetti Alfredo with Shrimp and Bowtie Pasta. Both were delicious, I sent Tracy a picture of what we were eating and she said that she was coming back. That was 3 hours ago, I keep checking the laneway, and no sign of her yet. She may have been pulling my leg…do ya think?
I however would never pull your leg, when I said I laid down and read in the back seat of the SUV while Jeff drove Tracy and I around sight seeing in the mountains and stuff…here ya go friends. The proof is in the
Gosh I miss her already. While we were in Globe we stopped at a Rusty Pickle Barrel or something like that. Jeff got me interested in going by saying "oh there are antique stores", well let me tell you this was not an antique store, it had beautiful items, and they had a little room in the back with antiques, it was more kinda consignment like. Some of the items outside in the yard were funny. They say that Texas has big bugs…check out this critter…
So while Tracy was here, she set herself up on one of the tables, and she sat in the corner and she had stuff sitting around like a little wall so we could visit and I could not see what she was doing…like I would peek!!!
She worked on gifts for MAMMa and Rhonda, and she also did some stuff for me. I think she did this while she was here, I am not sure, but look how cute this little gift ensemble is.
I do believe I will be copying this card. Don't you just love it?

Tracy says she got the little tins at Walmart in the wedding section.
One of my friends and fellow Paper Craft Planet DT girls asked today what was the best thing about being a SU! Demonstrator, and the first thing I said was the friends that I have made, and I mean it. I am not saying that to be sappy, or silly…it is the God's honest truth, I like to believe that Tracy and I would have met somehow but SU! made us meet sooner, I mean OMG! MAMMa and I lived a block or two apart for years and years, and never met. We met once we moved to Queen Creek and they moved to Gilbert, and we met because of Stampin' Up! So when I think of that, I think how would Tracy and I have met when she lives so far away in PA, and MAMMa and I never even knew each other living that close. Whatever, enough chitchat about that, but I just had to share. I believe…ok get ready for this…you know when you have de-ja-vu ( I am sure I spelled it wrong) I believe that when we are born our life is already mapped out for us. So as we go along our merry way, doing this and that, one day you walk into a store you have never been in, and (insert eery music here) you think gosh I've been here before, I think that is when your life has gotten back on track. I know wacky Di is chatting up some B.S. but I don't know, I always say prove me wrong.
Have a great Thursday, I will be getting my class stuff ready for this weekend, no more vacation, it's back to work time.
Thanks so much for stopping in!
