Summer's Here!

It's been a long weekend! I'm kind of exhausted, so I probably won't write too much tonight. Friday morning my friends Melissa and Yonda and I headed to a town rummage and spent hours yard-saling!! I really didn't pick up too much, especially in the way of clothes, since I'm pretty sure Annabel could outfit a small country at this point. I did find a couple pairs of cute jammies for the winter, so I grabbed those up. :) The best thing I found was a large set of those big lego things ($5!). 

Then Annabel and I headed down to my parents to the annual town festival. I tried my hand at selling hair bows, but didn't have much luck! I think I sold 4, which did not even pay for the booth space! Haha. Oh well. I did, however, make enough to buy a fake Dolce & Gabbana purse that I'm kind of excited about. :)

I totally forgot the camera, so no new pictures :( but here are some highlights from our weekend at the fair!
~ Annabel and I ate 5 meals of fair food. Somebody, please, give me some vegetables before I have a heart attack!
~ I flirted with a carnie to get free trips down the giant slide with Annabel. My mom called me a carnival whore. 
~I held a tarantula! It belonged to said carnie. Annabel was scared of it. 
~I mentioned my new purse, didn't I?
~We went to a parade and Annabel LOVED it! She waved at everyone, and loved chasing the candy. I think she ate more candy that day than she has in her whole life!!
~This morning before we left I entered her in a baby contest. She took second! She really should have been first, of course, but we'll file our appeal later.  I felt really bad for the moms of the babies that didn't place. I would have been so sad/embarrassed/mad if the judges didn't like my baby! I don't think we'll do it again for that reason:) It just seems wrong, anyway. 
~We also went to a baby shower for my friend Sarah from high school. I'm so excited for her, because she and her husband have been trying for 4+ years for this. 

While we were gone, Derek got to cater a party on a house boat! How fun is that!? I really hope it helps drum up some new business. Tonight, we stopped at the "Family Fun" festival at the camp. We ate MORE fair-type food (cheeseburger, corn on the cob, cotton candy, sno-cones, iced coffee...), petted the animals in the barn, hung out with friends, and most importantly, saw daddy! I think Annabel really misses him when we're gone like that, because she asks about him constantly. 

Anyway, that's all for now. I've going to go lay down on the couch and catch up on some dvr:)
