Whew...what a weekend!!!

Well, I'm home safe after a fabulous weekend away in Vancouver!! On Friday morning at the crack of dawn....Wayne, Brayden and I did a quick trip to Kelowna where I dropped the boys off to pick up Wayne's truck.  I then quickly turned around and headed back to Kamloops (after a quick stop and visit at the store in Vernon) where I picked up my GF Lori and we were on our way!!   We traversed the Coq and made some decent time, stopping at Ikea in Burnaby to take a quick look around and avoid some rush hour traffic.  We then headed over to Richmond to find our hotel and thanks to my iPhone navigation and Lori's fabulous driving...we made it unscathed! :)  We took the shuttle to the airport for dinner that night as there really isn't anything around the hotel except for an overpriced restaurant in the hotel, whose menu didn't look promising!  (...well that and I refuse to pay $24 for a chicken breast!).  Saturday morning we did a little shopping around town and I picked up a cool new gadget for my iPhone that allows me to listen to my music through the stereo in the van.  It also charges my phone at the same time - WIN WIN!!! :)  Saturday afternoon we attended the Scentsy Convention and learned all about the new products available March 1st.  I'm excited to say that I love pretty much everything that's headed down the pike!  Lots of fun new goodies are on the way and the "kits" we received were nothing short of amazing!! Definitely worth a LOT more than the $75 we paid to attend the convention!! We wrapped that up at about 5pm and then Lori and I spent a couple hours geocaching in the dark before heading back to the airport for dinner again! :)  Caching in the dark has its own challenges and as we didn't know the area (or if it was a rough one) our "geo-senses" were tingling and we decided to call it a night after trying to find a few more caches after dinner.  We headed back to the hotel around 11pm and called it a night!  This morning we perservered back to a couple of caches that had eluded us the previous night and did manage to find one!! The other one still kept us guessing so we'll have to try that one again next time we're in town! :)  We headed back to Ikea and met one of Lori's friends for brunch and then after picking up a few items (read new duvet/pillows and some miscellaneous stuff for the kitchen) we headed home.  I arrived in Salmon Arm just before 7pm and enjoyed a cinnamon bun with my boys whilst they told me about their weekend - specifically beating Revelstoke (amazing) and Brayden scoring his first goal of the season!! Yahooo - great weekend all around!!   There was a message saying that I have a parcel pick up at the local stationary store and I can only guess that's my new photography light box!! I sure hope so as that means I can photograph my 80+ skeins of yarn this week and get them on my site! :) Looking forward to focussing on my yarn business again and of course I have a couple of other irons in the fire that will need some attention this week!  Stay tuned......

I hope you all had a great weekend too ....thanks for stopping by! :)
