The Weekend Recap

Last weekend was one of the crazier weekends I've had in awhile. Yes, I realize that it's almost the weekend again, which gives you an idea of how long it has taken me to recover :)

 My weekend started on Thursday. Going straight from work to downtown. Charissa and I had signed up to help out at our booth for a few hours. When we got there the line to get into Comic con was out the door... 45 minutes later, one bathroom costume change and a frantic searching of Comic con for our booth to get Charissa a vendor pass later, we were in! We were only able to help out at the booth for about an hour and half because I was also teaching some basic sewing skills for my relief society, but it was still fun! The line was not fun. But helping at the booth was :)

 On Friday Charissa's Little Big sister (of no actual blood relation...) got home from her mission and we got to meet her at the airport! It was awesome to see her come down the escalator and all the people who loved her.

 Saturday we finally made it back to comic con. the line was once again out the door and wrapped around the building. I had to leave Charissa to stand in line while I tried to find parking... I parked more than a mile away, but I still made it into the line before Charissa even made it into the inside the building line. 

 Ok, I just couldn't resist the chance to get a picture in the Tardis, especially since it was FREE! :) Charissa and I were princesses because we had dressed up for a princess party for 3 year olds and came straight from there to comic con!
 Heard of Evermore yet? It looks like it's going to be sweet!

We didn't end up staying long at Comic con. We had fun, but honestly the crowds were insane and the lines... I don't know that I would do it again. This year we had free multi-passes because we went to a press release, but if we hadn't gotten them, I don't think we would have gone. I often felt like I had no control over where I was going inside the salt palace because the crowd was just pushing me along. Not to mention that it was SO big! We couldn't find anything because there were too many things, even having the app and their little booklet that they handed out wasn't as helpful as I would have hoped. 

Lastly, I finally went dancing! If you didn't already know this about me, I LOVE dancing. I got into it in high school. I first started learning Country Swing on my best friend's driveway. Then I enrolled in a ballroom class, two semesters of that in high school. I loved going to the Murray arts center and learning new things there. Then in college I took ballroom 1 and 2, as well as an advanced Country Swing class. I also went dancing about once a week. But it has been over a year since I went dancing. Let's just say I'm MORE than a little rusty. I've never been an amazing dancer, but I love it so much that I don't care! I hope to be amazing one day though!

So that was my crazy busy weekend! I may just lay in bed all weekend this weekend just because I can! Or, more likely, now that I've gotten a little busier, I'll continue the trend until I can't take it anymore (welcome to my life :) ). 

What are your weekend plans? Did you go to comic con? What did YOU think?
