weekend update ~ crazy late!

my excuse is: i'm busy getting ready for some peeps to visit...so i'm taking a brief interlude to detail my super exciting weekend:

friday when i got home from work (early) the kids were all sleeping...where is sophie? does anyone see her?


there you are you crazy cat!

saturday we spent most of the day helping set up for the Fur Ball...we also went to the farmer's market for pumpkins...

sunday i cleaned house, did laundry, baked some amish friendship bread and got ready for the Ball...about five minutes before MIL was to come take our picture i realized the camera battery was d.e.a.d...so after literally only 5 minutes of recharging we managed to get one picture:

i've had that skirt for 10 years, lol. i wore it way back to an office christmas party that was all fancy schmancy...it was fun to get all dressed up and wear a LONG skirt...i've not done that since the last time i wore it...

we scored 3 items at the evening's silent auction:

a basket of mary phillips stuff (i've got a couple of her pictures in the house...and i think her napkins are fun, her headquarters are here local):

the contents spread out...i didn't' even know there was a t-shirt in the basket!

i also really wanted this painting by smithfield the painting pig...i'd seen him on tv before and knew he'd come to the vet school at ncsu for nasal cancer treatment...he paints to pay for his vet bills...hmmm, are you listening my little kitties? he WORKS and gets paid...take note...anyhoo, i had to knock a couple of peeps out of the way at the last minute to get the winning bid:


we also got a metal cat sculpture...picture to come later...

back to cleaning the house...
