better than a typical monday

What an enjoyable and productive weekend. It included a wonderful pancake and bacon breakfast prepared lovingly by my amazing hubby; making some major headway on my scrapbook commission; seeing 'Live Free or Die Hard' (good movie, by the way); watching some of the Live Earth concert; watching some kick a** tennis in the form of the Wimbledon men's final; and one heck of a fun margarita party with some neighbour friends! Yep...I'd say it was one heck of a fine summer weekend.

I met up with Janice and Pat (two of my bestest art friends) for a trip to N Jefferson Ltd. (a local wholesale quilting/notions supply store) over lunch. A bit of retail therapy to help take away those Monday blahs...ahhhh. Then, I get back to work to find an email saying that I had won a prize from the radio station that I listen to - JACKFM. I had entered some of my JACK points in one of the little on-line contests and what do you know...it paid off!

I won a "TUMS Time Out" prize package, which included a TUMS luggage tage, BC Lions t-shirt and a Heys International x-case! It's carry-on size and looks quite cool. How perfect! We have been talking about getting new luggage and this is a really nice start. The radio station is only a few minutes from where I work, so I popped out this afternoon to pick up my prize. I got to choose between army green and turquoise. Turquoise it is! Not bad for a Monday.
