Weekend Snapshots {8/27/12}

follow me on instagram- @carmenmariah
1/// Jo & David's dog, Mr. B's- the best one eyed dog in the world
2/// Garage sale hot ticket item that- shockingly- didn't sell! Our 15-year-old optical illusion poster
3/// Friday & Saturday were spent running my garage sale, like a freaking boss
4/// Again, SHOCKED that the piƱata didn't sell. The Barrel of Fun, however, ended up selling during the last hour of the sale. YAY!
5/// Lamarion, Miyonnah & Mariah doing what they do best- cheesin' it & playing dress up!
6/// Saturday night at the German American Festival {SO MUCH BEER!}
7/// & Funnel Cake of course. Who would I be if I went to a festival and didn't wait in line for half an hour for funnel cake?!
8/// Vinnie's 1st birthday. He tore into that giant cupcake like nobody's business
9/// Going away party on Sunday complete with a chips and salsa serving dish that only a real Mexican family would use. Seriously. We own beautiful masterpiece.

I know I always say that my weekends are productive/exhausting/whatever. But this was one for the books. I got so much stuff done, I like want everyone around me to tell me how awesome and productive I am. I know that's ridiculous, but whatever. The garage sale was a HUGE success. I haven't worked that hard in I don't know how long. LOTS of manual labor. Phew! So happy it's done though. It felt amazing to get rid of all of my old crap & make a little money in the process. Other than that, the weekend was full of family & friends hangs and lots of goodbyes. Is it just me or does saying goodbye totally suck? Like, can't we all just agree to stop doing that, even though I'm moving away in 5 days? It just makes me so sad!! Part of the process though, I guess. Oh well! This time next week, I'll be in sunny LA, unpacking boxes. So crazy. 

Okay, I'm off to pack up my life. Wish me luck!
