Spring break…

Happy Monday folks!

I hope you had a lovely St Patties day weekend.
Last week was spring break in this neck of the woods.  I typically don’t have spring break off my full time job, and that has never been a big deal.  Well this year I did get the week off! I had some grand plans for resting a bit and some organizing projects, but as life goes, things ended up a bit different than I expected.  Not always a bad thing.

The week started out with our contractor finishing off the new light fixtures in our house.  We had some hiccups along the way but everything turned out great!  I am especially excited about my new chandelier! It was supposed to be a tad more purple, but the color adds a nice pop and a much brighter light to my office space!

I had more free time and I was around for the week so I ended up subbing and taking some classes I don’t normally get to take.  It was fun, but also a bit exhausting.
I also received my prize package from Pure Protein! I won a year supply and they accidentally sent it to the wrong address first.  Finally got it all straightened out 🙂

We were pet sitting for some friends and their newish puppy was so sweet.

I did manage to get in a few naps, and they were oh so helpful!

On Friday evening I headed up to Dallas to be part of The Boho Market at the Dallas Farmer’s Market.  My good friend runs the show and it is always fun to be involved.
Getting out of town on Friday was a bit of an adventure.  Trying to finish up my product labels and my printer was giving me a fit, then I had to do a few errands that took way longer than planned (of course) and finally I remembered I needed a new headlight bulb.  Thankfully I called a AutoZone on my way out of town and they guy was SUPER helpful.  He saved the last bulb they had in stock for me, and when I arrived a little while later, he put it in for me.  {I have done it myself in the past, but didn’t have any of my tools with me this time.}  Thank you Kevin!!!

I finally got to Dallas around 10 and I was so worn out from the week and the day.  I was super happy though to see my friend and we chatted for a while before we went to bed.

The air mattress I had brought with me was a fail! I pretty much ended up on the floor for most of the night.  We had to get up early to make it to the market for set up, so didn’t get that much sleep.

Saturday’s market had a TON of people.  I sold some items and enjoyed talking to people about the benefits of natural products and essential oils.  After the market closed a group of us were going to meet up for dinner.  My GPS took me to a different location so I ended up being 30 min in the wrong direction! Add in rain and a city I am not super familiar driving in had me a little stressed out. Thankfully I made it and we had a nice dinner.

Sunday the market was more on the quiet side in the morning but picked up in the afternoon.  I didn’t sell as much and I was pretty tired.  When the market closed I packed my items up and went to change in the bathroom into more comfy travel clothes.  As I was changing I heard the main door go CLICK! I was locked in!  Thankfully I had my phone with me and I called my friend.  Her fiance answered and came to my rescue! Whew!

The drive home was eventful for the second half.  My typical 3 hour drive became almost 5.5 hours with some random pop up storms, hail and tornado warnings!

When I finally made it home the hubs helped me unload my car and I got ready then crashed into bed!

I did enjoy some different adventures, but I am ready for my normal schedule this week!!

I am also linking up with Holly and Wendy for the Weekly Wrap.

May you be filled with joy and health!

    Love the chandelier! Love the pups! And OMG, I love that angry looking cat!

    Sounds like you had whirlwind weekend! I love visiting new cities, but I get totally stressed out with driving, especially if I’m not familiar with my surroundings!

    I would have lost my mind if I got locked in the bathroom!

    Dang girl, that sounds like one heck of an exhausting weekend! I’ve just recently started getting into essential oils lately. 🙂

    What a fun idea to have a chandelier for your office space. I love the pop of color. My hat is off to you. I can only imagine how much work it is to participate in a market show! That’s a nice haul from Pure Protein too. Thanks for linking!

      Thank you! I’ve always wanted a chandelier and finally took the plunge.
      The market prep can be intense but I dialed WAY back this time.
      I’m def loving all the Pure Protein stuff so far!
