Price left to go back to NY until Sunday night. I was mopey at our lunch together because it is almost a week apart. He quickly corrected me and said only 5 days. True. At least it is not over 2 months like when he was in Biloxi. Things are just not he same when he is not at home. Oh well, I filled up my week with things to do to be distracted. First things first….
YELP ELITE EVENT!!!!!!
Being that I’m super cool and a yelp elite I was able to go on a cruise around Boston harbor. My +1 and I had a good time cruising in Boston Harbor. It was the very first yelp elite cruise event in the history of all yelp event. Sweet. Plus we got some free beverages (makers mark mojito= yum, MGD 64= piss water) and dinner. It is surprisingly amusing to everyone to see plans landing at Logan- lots of cheering and clapping. It’s not like their wheels were going to hit the top of the boat but it was pretty cool so see them RIGHT above us. Reminds me of driving on the Jersey Turnpike next to Newark Airport. Anyway, the best was the sunset.
I organize a Scrapbooking Meetup so that I can have people over to scrapbook. Its great being able to share my stamps and tools with people, esp since I have sooo many stamps!!
Well, I was in slow mo all day and did not get much done. At least I have planned for what I will be doing next…. GREECE!!!
Supplies I used:
I love everything that I use to scrapbook but since I am a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator I can be biased. Great stuff!
Most three day weekends are relaxing but I took today off so I could go to the Brimfield Antique Show with Emily. Really, I can’t miss a chance to see the stuff that people have dug out of their attics and then buy it. So we planned for the show and then added on the New England Sand Sculpting Festival to make our day jammed pack.
Brimfield was insane. Some things were amazing like this set of dishes from the late 1800’s I wanted (too bad I don’t have $800 just to throw around) and other things were scary/gross like this one tent that smelled like grandma’s closet mixed with dead animal. While we were getting crispy in the sun I found some cool Pyrex, a rabbit postcard from 1906, 2 Vaseline glass juice reamers, and this AMAZING copper pot and Emily found this cool (‘hipster’) necklace and a decanter. The pot was the deal of the day- $50 and great condition. Plus the guy selling it was hilarious- he had this monster sized hands that had massive gold rings on all his fingers. HA!
So after getting a mild sunburn, spending all our cash on old stuff and Pilgrim sandwiches we headed off to the Revere Beach, America’s first beach, to watch grown men (and a woman) play in the sand. Luckily, the temp cooled off a bit and some clouds came in otherwise I would look like a lobsta right now. The sand sculptures were incredible. We hung around for a while watching them build, sadly one collapsed a bit but he quickly got to work on fixing it- I would have just fixed myself a strong drink at that point to take a break.
So glad tomorrow is Saturday so I can sleep in.
I had never been to a midnight movie, until now.
Emily, Price and I went to see the 12.01am show at Lowe’s. Emily and I counted down all day until 12am. Price was scared. As excited as we were we did not get that into it. I just can’t rationalize dressing up to see a movie. It was quite entertaining to watch all the wizards crowd into the theatre. If I was a comedian I would have gotten so much great material just from the night’s experiences.
We met at Parish Cafe for some food (no beers- Emily and I have bad luck when it comes to falling asleep and throwing up at shows so we did not want to risk it) . Ran over to CVS for candy. HOLY CRAP! they had strawberry peanut butter M&M’s. Then walked over to Loews. It was crazy town there. Some guy from Lowe’s was on a bullhorn directing people. And then we finally got to see the movie. The movie was fantastic!! But I would like to thank the theater for stating a movie over 20 minutes late. And the annoying guy behind us who banged into our seats every time he left to use the bathroom.
All in all, great night! great movie! great candy! I loved the fact that it was my first midnight movie, that Price was a good sport about they whole night even though I dumped a packet of pop rocks into my mouth, got an inch away from his ear and opened my mouth while we were waiting for the movie to start and kept nudging him when he was starting to fall asleep, and that I managed to get through my day on 3 hours of sleep.
