holy cotton candy blogland!

WOW! I feel like the lost blogger! Still struggling to keep up these days.. I dont know what the heck I've been doing since I last posted.. lets see.... Friday night I went to see Jersey BOys! OMG.. if it comes near you, you should go see it. I loved it.. All about Frankie Valli and the 4 Seasons. It was so good! the music was awesome!
Saturday, I went to a craft show/auction/luncheon with 5 girlfriends. We had a great time visiting and getting caught up with each other. I also put all my easter stuff away. (took forever!) SO SaD to see it all go. This is the hardest time of year for decorating, because I dont know what to do with out a holiday! It'll take me a couple weeks or so to get things put back together! Then, in June I'll get out my summery and patriotic things, but til then, I guess its just a springy theme.. birds, nests, plants. Does anyone have any great springy decorating ideas??? I really need some cheap and easy ones!
Sunday all my kids and their boyfriends, girlfriends came over for steaks on the grill in honor of my little Tonys 24th birthday. uhh.. wait.. I think thats his 23rd birthday! eiy yie yie! I loose track sometimes! We had a good time all together. I'm always so glad that they all get a long and love each other! Thank you GOD!

Lets see.. Today it was back to work. There was calling hours for my friend from work that was killed last week. I was talking to her children at calling hours and had to leave quickly to go have a little cry. It just breaks my heart that those precious kids will grow up with out their sweet mommy.
Tomorrow is the funeral and child and family services is putting on the meal for after the funeral. While I was at the store getting some things for the casseroles that Im making, I found these cotton candy buddy bars! ONly 100 calories, or 2 weight watchers points.. I ate two of them! I ate one as soom as I got in the car, and I just ate another one.. I did it for you guys.. I needed to take a picture of one, with a bite out of it, just so you could see how good they look.. So.. Yes, I sacrificed my weigh in for tomorrow night, just for you all! I hope you appreciate it! lol!!
OKeedokie.. I really need to go work on some bear orders!! huggles and night all!

Yikes!!! Those look delicious! My daughter was just drooling over my shoulder...besides being ice cream, her favorite color is aqua--the perfect treat in her mind!

Hope your friends' family is okay--I'm so sorry that happened...

Hi Vivian,
You are looking SO SO skinny these days. This pic of you here is ADORABLE!
That is wonderful that C & F Services is putting on the luncheon afterwards. Nothing could be more helpful than to feed the big group after such a trying, emotional day.
And as for Jersey Boys...we saw it a couple of years ago while visitng NYC for the first time. Very cute!
Good luck with everything tomorrow.
Mary Lou

iv...I am so sorry to hear about your coworker/friend. Her family has been in my prayers. I had to tell you how disappointed I am to find out that they do not sell those amazing cotton candy ice cream bars at any stores near me. They look amazing. Have fun on your trip.
