Life Lately

There's something about being so busy during the week that makes me a little bit possessive of my weekends. I'm introverted anyway, so being around people for 10-11 hours a day Monday through Thursday wipes me out, and I tend toward hermithood the rest of the week. Now that we have Henry, it's even worse, because I feel a tad bit guilty leaving him alone when I have the option to stay home (especially since he's still a little guy and I feel like it's important to establish a strong bond with him early). It's only been a couple weeks, so we're still finding the balance/new normal around here. Even still, I managed to get out a bit last week, so here are the simple highlights of a wonderful week. 

One of my favorite parts of last week was a Sunday afternoon craft session with Layne. That girl is so talented it's crazy. She makes the most gorgeous weavings and just generally can run circles around me in the creativity department. Love getting together with her.

Thursday was the first night of Needtobreathe's Rivers in the Wasteland tour, and it kicked off in Springfield! Needtobreathe has been one of my favorite bands for years now (I'm honestly not sure how many times I've seen them in concert), so it was super exciting to see the first show of the tour, and to hear some songs played for the first time live! Seeing it with friends (like Sarah, my NTB-concert-buddy!) just made it better. Those guys just make me feel all the feels during their shows.

The concert was amazing, but I definitely slept in the next day. And maybe took a nap with Henry, too. I'm too old to be out past midnight, apparently. ;)
Oh, the library book sale. Twice a year, our local library sells off their excess books (and some donations) and it's glorious! I walked away with all of those books for less than $30. INSANITY.

I finally stopped by Legacy Bagelry--I know, where have I been? It was delicious, and I also met the lovely Madison. I've been a fan of this gal's blog for a long while. Her last post on vulnerability is just spot on, and she is just as sweet in person as she seems to be online.

Saturday was Free Comic Book Day, so Tyler and I made a couple stops and ended up with a few comics and some art. I snagged this adorable print from (and finally got to meet!) Kendra. Poor Jon Snow. Hashtag Game of Thrones forever. I picked up this print (and its male counterpart) from Ryan Wheaton, too. Yay talented local artists!

Free Comic Book Day also happens to be National Scrapbooking Day, so we stopped by my favorite local scrapbook store on the way home. They were having a sale + free goodie bags for the first 200 people. Five goodie bags had golden tickets for big prize totes with over $100 worth of stuff in them, and apparently #72 was a lucky number, because I won and I never win anything. Woo hoo! Looks like I have lots of scrappin' to do!

What have you been up to this week?
