Same Old Song and Dance

Once again, life is crazy and I seem to barely be keeping my head above water. This week we have Cub Scouts Blue and Gold Banquet, parent teacher conference and Miss S's ballet recital. All good things...but this mama is worn out. Only 10 more days until Miss S and I get to go visit family for a long weekend for my niece's baptism. We are taking the train and I am SO excited for a new adventure and for a nice 5 day break from work. Plus the week we get back, the office is closed on Friday so that means I get most of a day to myself as both Hubby and Miss S will be at school all day! YEAH!!! We've never been on a train before and I am really looking forward to it. Miss S was asking today what kind of food I think they'll have in the dining car.

I managed to do a little sewing this weekend, and finish up a few lingering swaps...sadly this is one of the only ones I remembered to take a picture of!! This is for my Bag Ladies flickr group swap - this month's theme was reusable shopping bags. I used Creative Kismet's fabulous tutorial and I love how they turned out. I can definitely see myself making more of these in the future! These two are heading to Denmark.

Love the bags, very cute!
When I was 12 I went with my grandma on a train trip to Montana (a lonnnng ride!) and I thought it was the best adventure ever. I've been wanting to take another train trip ever since.

I think the train is great fun. I took the girls when the were three and four years-old. We went from California to Omaha Nebraska. I loved it!!! Have a terrific time!!!

Oh I love your bags! I took the train in 6th grade on our safty patrol trip to DC. I am sure that you will have a little better seats & food than a bunch of kids did. Have fun!
