Memorial Weekend

Well, talk about a busy weekend! Friday, got together with my cousins and hit a couple of stores. Saturday gave my first coupon class to a group of ladies at a church. It was so much fun, my two cousins, Jacque and Juanita, went with me and helped me out. The ladies were excited to get started, well at least I think they were. Afterwards, my cousins treated me to lunch at Tino's in Mesquite and the food was great! My cousins are so good to me :)

So seeing as my cousin John, Jacque's husband, was sitting with Tia we took advantage and had a girl's day of being out and about doing some shopping find some deals. CVS was the place to be for make-up. The Loreal brand was on clearance for no more than $2.49 on lipsticks, lip gloss, eye shadows, mascara, eye liner. Now when we shop, we are actually shopping for six people, all women. There are 6 of us in our coupon club and so when we find a deal we try to buy for everyone. Loreal on clearance for no more than $2.49 and our coupon was $2.00 off 1 loreal product. OMG that's only .49 at the most for makeup!

By the end of the day we had purchased $1500 worth of LOREAL makeup for only $80! So we each had some great makeup!

Then we headed home and I had about an hour before I had to dress for a wedding reception. Al showed up and we're off to Fort Worth to meet up with my cousin Elena who is the one that invited me to the wedding. Well, when we arrived, she was out on the porch and here comes this beautiful young lady and I hardly recoginize her, it's Bianca! Man has she grown!

So, Elena says ok we're going to National first and I'm like huh? yeah we have two weddings tonight. Damn! Elena is known throughout Ft Worth and just about every month there is a party of some sort that she's inviting me to. :)

So we get to National, very nice reception hall. This wedding is a "Tejano" wedding. The band was good, good DJ everyone having fun and dancing Tejano, Cumbias, laughing and children running about dancing as well. Everyone was well dressed.

2nd wedding - My god talk about day and night weddings. The 2nd wedding was a "Pachuco" wedding. All the groomsmen were wearing their chains on their pant belt loops with the long coat, stacy adams, hats. Don't get me wrong they looked nice as usual but the atmosphere is completely different. Music is reggaeton, hip-hop, oldies. You have people yelling across the room y que orale cabron! Funny.

Ok so we head home about midnight, long drive to Mesquite.

Sunday, I had my yard sale at a friends house, made some good money and packed up, left my truck at home and headed to my sisters for a cookout. We had a blast, Sharon was there with mom, Sabrina was there with Juju. Later in the evening we headed to the Casino, no luck got home about 1am from casino.

Monday, well, Vica has spent the entire weekend with her girlfriend so I had my whole weekend Vica free :) j/k

Anyway, on Monday me and Al decided to drive to Big Rocks in Glen Rose. we enjoyed some time swimming in the Brazos River and found this awesome spot where we can camp right on the river! Our plan? Be back in two weeks to camp out.

Today is Tuesday........back to work.
