My crazy life...

Many of you may be wondering what I've been up to lately because there haven't been any new post or crafts being made around here in the last few weeks.  Well, I've certainly been busy but not in a crafty way.  The rain has given us a weed explosion on an epic scale this year.  I've been pulling, mowing, weed-eating, and spraying the darn things and they are still growing faster than I can keep up with them.  We purchased a torch to burn them little suckers to the ground and will try that next. 
The week before Mother's Day was spent at the flower shop.  I put in 70 hours that week and I feel like I am still trying to recover from it.  Volume tripled fom Valentines Day and we were doing our best to keep up.  As much I enjoy working the holidays, they are very hard on a person.  Not much gets done at home that week but I prep meals before hand so it's easier on me.  The week after events like this are spent bringing the house back up to par with laundry, cleaning, cooking, etc. along with errands that didn't get done.
Now, we are preparing for a huge BBQ at the house next weekend. (hence, the panic on the yard)  Looking like 50 people or so will be here.  You see, we have decided to start a new adventure into competiton BBQ and this is our kick-off event.  This will let eveyone have a little bit of fun with it and share in some dang good BBQ.  It's also great practice for us as well.  We are excited and nervous at the same time but I know it will be something fabulous, exhausting and enjoyable all at the same time.  Our first competition will be in Williams AZ on the July 4th weekend.  We've been gearing up (literally) for it with lists, equipment, practice cooks and more.  If you're in the Vegas area, come on by....see the flyer for more information.  Oh, next week we are taking a judging course for competition BBQ as well.  It will give us great insight as to what judges are looking for, making our 'Q even better. 
Amongst all this, I am prepping for my one summer show in Duck Creek in July as well.  I purchased a souble booth so I'd best get my butt in gear so I'll be ready for it.  I told Timm to get a booth and sell some yummy BBQ but I think I need to be in that one as well.  BBQ is not a one man operation.  Who knows...if all goes well, next year a BBQ booth may be where I'm at next year.
