Business Over Pleasure

Holy bageezus, I've been busy.
One of those desperately looking for an end in sight kind of busy.
...I don't see one until the Haven Conference!!!!!!! the week of June 18th.

I hope you all had a very happy Memorial Day weekend.
I did. But it was BUSY, too!

I had a stupendous trip to Nashville planned- to go to the flea market, of course. What else would one do in Nashville??
 Then, Saturday, as I was packing my bags, my sister called and invited me to go on a hot air balloon ride.
What?!? A hot air balloon ride?!?!?!

Uh oh.
Now I have to chose between the Nashville Flea Market 
 Can you guess what I chose?

The flea market. Duh.
So, my husband and I drove up to Nashville on Saturday,
ate dinner at Cafe Rakka- a Mediterranean restaurant I saw featured on Guy Fieri's show ''Diners, Drive In's, & Dives''

My husband and I can throw down on some food...
We ordered 2 appetizers, 2 entrees, 4 drinks, & 2 zerts. 
It was delish.

Then, we met up with our friends Garreth and Joy on Broadway St...

 Sunday morning we headed to the flea market and found some good junk that I don't have pictures of yet. Then, we visited another flea market and found more junk that I also don't have pictures of.
OMGoodness, it was so hot! but I found a few great pieces for our inventory so our trip was a success.

Before we headed home, we took a ride though the Stones River National Cemetery in honor of Memorial Day, of course.

So, we're driving back, about an hour away from home, tired, burned, sticky, sore from walking- and my sister called...
 It wasn't too late for hot air balloons!!

 Oh you know I did.
With a load of furniture in the back and 2 wimpy passengers in the front, we went straight from Nashville to Decatur, Al to stand in line for 2 hours. Yep. My husband calls a weekend like that ''Adventures with Audra''

 Ok, so it wasn't like a ride across a grassy meadow or anything. It was hop in the basket, take pictures, go up 50ft, take more pictures, go back down, & hustle back out of the basket. However, it was a blast!!
I think that might of been God's way of rewarding me for being responsible and choosing ''business'' over pleasure... 
In the long run, I got my Nashville trip & my hot air balloon ride.

That concludes our jam packed full of fun weekend.

Now on to other news:
Since May 1st Simply Salvaged has booked a total of 28 pieces- we have been blessed! and busy! That means major furniture eye candy coming soon (starting with a French bedroom set I will be finishing up tomorrow!)

I am one of the newest vendors for The Chilled Canvas in Tuscumbia, Al. Starting in mid June I'll be putting some of my pieces in their boutique :)

The Haven Conference is only 3 weeks away!!!!

Thanks for reading!
