weekend in the City ....

 well, not really, but kinda ....

  I joined the super stampers at Scrapfest at the Mall of America !! It was chaotic -- we had tickets to scrapbook at Archivers from 6:30 to 12:30am ... so we worked, we ate, we laughed and we got educated.

becky picking thru pictures (note the food on the lower right -- popcorn drenched in almond bark)

jan starting out Sunday morning with the diet COKE!

we witnessed a fight in the parking ramp -- we moved pretty damn fast to get out of there quickly ... ugh

I shopped my way up there ... gotta love the Lands End outlet store -- and shopped my way home -- but bought very little.

Beautiful day today -- I started picking squash -- the deer seem to enjoy anything orange, tan or white so I picked the carnivals, the butternuts, the tennessee sweet potato's and my knucklehead pumpkins.  picked all of the available pumpkins.  I spent $42 on pumpkin seed for jack-o-lantern pumpkins and got 6 -- spendy devils eh!  My little trailer is full, the atv is full and I've got some in the truck.  Acorns and buttercups tomorrow and maybe a watermelon or two.  I probably have 2 more Saturdays at Market left -- not like the old days .... when I made it thru Halloween .... one year we were still selling squash in November ... we must have been crazy.

Happy Week!
