The Birthday Weekend

*I had a blog post for Thursday go up on accident last night. I switched it back to a scheduled post, so Julie your comment should still be saved. :) *

I have to say that even though my birthday was just on Sunday, it was a great weekend overall!
Starting with Mike and the kids doing the grocery shopping on Saturday.
It's a chore that I regularly do each week, but Evan suggested they all take a turn for my birthday. :)
It really was a great idea!
As for material gifts, Erin picked out a necklace for me, Evan gave me a pretty shirt (that Mike picked out although Evan knew he wanted to give me a shirt) which I am not wearing, and Mike gave me the new sunglasses I am wearing.
Mike cooked dinner and baked me a chocolate cake before heading out of town. I pretty much relaxed all day and even worked on a scrapbook assignment.
My kind of weekend! :)

I know I mentioned in my last post that the 2p's in a Bucket scrapbook site is closing.
I have yet to really check in at Cocoa Daisy where I had signed up with the message boards to follow along with Stashbusters.
But I did sign up for Elise's board she put together The Feed Your Craft boards.
There are quite a few peas from the bucket there.
Also I saw this on Facebook yesterday
I was able to switch my entire Two Peas in a Bucket gallery over to my Scrapbook.com gallery pretty quickly. Kudos to SB.com for being pretty smart and proactive. It was a nice, easy solution for me. And even though I had a gallery there, I used the 2p's one a lot more. I don't know about the boards there yet, but at least I have a place to continue posting my layouts for awhile.
Here is the link if you are interested:

Otherwise, it is business as usual here. Enjoying summer and having a hard time believing it is July 1st and we are in our 5th week of summer vacation already! :-O
I will be back on Thursday or Friday with a fun list for Lists with Friends. :)
See you then!

  6. I could not see your post, just the title, well done for retrieving it, I did not know you could do that.

  7. Happy July 1st and Happy Birthday!! Sounds like you had a good one!! :) Evie

  8. Happy Belated Birthday! I'm glad that you had such a fun, relaxing day.

  9. Happy birthday :) sounds like a wonderful day!! I found twopeasrefugees someone sent me the link. I can forward it to you. Right now it's just message boards, but it's a start!!

    1. The only thing with the refugees board is apparently it's mostly NSBR people from what I've heard. Do you know if that's true. I really was not into that scene.

    2. I would be interested to know myself, as I was not into the NSBR board either…those ladies scared me, teehee.

  10. Happy belated birthday and have to say how wonderful your dh cooked and baked for you and that your family pulled together so you could relax.

    As for the refugee Peas board, I feel like it's mostly the NSBR and Feed Your Craft feels like the SB side of the house.

  11. thanks for the link to transfer layouts over to the scrapbook.com site. I have done it!

  12. So glad you had a nice birthday!! LOVE your new picture wearing your necklace.

  13. Happy belated birthday!

  14. Sounds like a great birthday weekend Mary Jo!!

  15. Happy Birthday…you look great!!!
    Thanks for the info on the other message boards…like I need more computer time, teehee
