Let me just say that I was THRILLED when the weekend finally rolled around. I had to be at work SUPER early this week which was not fun. What made it even worse is that Josh was busy at the church all week and didn't get home every night until around 12:30 am!!! So needless to say we barely saw each other. This past week was World Changers at our church. It's a really neat opportunity for our church and community but it's a lot of work. One way our youth got involved was by selling snacks to the other students during free time. This was also a way for our youth to earn some money for their summer camp. Since Josh is the youth minister he did all the work of setting up of the "Snack Shack" and getting it ready to go every day. Since I had a crazy work week I didn't go to church at all until Friday. I wanted to be sure and see what all Josh had been up too that week. He was very nice to give me a tour of the Snack Shack...and then take me to dinner...and then make me a snow cone!!
The snack shack was converted from a mobile army mess hall that one of our church members bought. It's really neat!
They served all kinds of great things!
Here's Josh making me a snow cone. He knows how much I love them.
Grape and Cherry...delicious.
Saturday I spent ALL DAY CLEANING! Who would have thought a 650 square foot apartment could take you all day. OK, by "all day" I mean 5 hours or more. That's a lot of the day. :) After all my hard work I took a nap, bought some patterns online, ate dinner, and then it was time to embroider. My mom bought some bags the other day and wanted me to embroider them. She's thinking of getting some more as gifts but wasn't sure what fonts would look best so I tried a couple out.
This bag was pretty easy to monogram on and thank goodness it went on straight.
I really like this font.
The second bag was not as easy. There was a lot of elastic in the band. I finally got it situated and everything was going along great until the elastic moved and the metal snap got in the way. Sewing machines don't really like metal snaps.
I broke my first needle. Luckily I had extra ones!
The bag turned out really cute though. And it's on straight too (although it doesn't look like it in this picture).
