So, I finally finished it, the book that is! Took me awhile, a lot longer than I had initially hoped, but life just seems so much more busy now than when the last book came out. I liked it though and I got all sentimental and emotional during the last few pages. It's just so weird to feel that there will be no more. I'm going to wait a while and then re-read them all from the beginning and by then hopefully, it'll feel like they're fresh in my mind again. Hopefully being the key. Haha...
On a much less happy note, when I wake up tomorrow morning, vacation will be over. Really not thrilled there. Been thinking a lot about life and what I want to do and where I want to go the past few days. I know what I definitely don't want and I know what I want to aspire for, I just am iffy on if it will be plausible, but I guess you never know till you try.
Friday, we went down to Boston/Cambridge for the day and evening. Got a couple different things I think I can use for scrapping. Went to the new Hard Rock Cafe for lunch. It's much nicer and it's in a much better location, but lunch for 3 of us ended up coming to over $70, with a $5 off coupon. Yikes! Later, we went on a Rock & Blues aka "booze cruise" out of Boston Harbor, which was our whole point in going. Chad Perrone headlined with Tim Blane and OSB opening...all 3 of them being local indie acts that I would deem very worthy of checking out. Before the cruise, I had what appeared to be a crazy drunken homeless man come up to me and want to take my camera, so he could take a picture of me and Tim and I was like, "Uh, no thanks" and he kept insisting. Finally I was just like, "NO" and then he was like, "Excuse me a minute" and hawked a loogie right next to us. Um, can you say disgusting?
During the cruise, at one point, I spotted this girl that looked REALLY familiar and I thought for a moment and realized she looked exactly like Lori from the "Real World 10: Back to New York". I mentioned it to my Mom and she agreed. A little while later, she walked by and my Mother said to her, "You know, you look just like Lori from the Real World" and she was like, "That's because I am". Totally random and cool. I had met the RW/RR Extreme Challenge cast back in 2000 and then Colin from the RW: Hawaii when I arranged for him to host an event at my high school my senior year and I just said to Tim last week when we went to the wrestling event that I think it would have been cool if I could have met Mike "The Miz", also from the RW: Back to New York, as I haven't met anyone from either show for a while, but it didn't happen. Who would have thought that I would have met his fellow castmate in a completely unexpected place less than a week later. Turns out she was there to see Tim Blane. Got a pic with her. She was really nice and looked exactly as she did on her season, she hasn't aged a bit. She is also much more tiny than you'd expect her to be and I mean heightwise.
Anyway, here's some pics from Boston, including the one with Lori:

After having a bit to drink, haha. Tim looks way happy and I've got the drunk closed eyes thing going, lol.
Also, finished a couple new LOs...the song one was way fun to do and I'm really pleased with how it came out! I got some new BasicGrey in the mail and wanted to use it, but found it challenging to figure out how to do so. For me, I love their stuff, but it's always such a challenge to use...a fun one though! And the So Happy LO was just a fun, playing around/experimenting thing. Like the way it came out though.
Finally, added 2 new items to my Etsy shop. A "Thinking of You" card I had made while playing around with scraps on my table and a set of 6 Christmas gift tags. Here are those:
But alright, pillow time for me! Until next time...
