Helloooo my friends! I feel like Ive neglected you all again. Its been a busy week. And of course as always, I'm glad its the weekend. Im having a valentine teaparty in the morning.. combined with a pampered chef party. I pretty much gave up having parties like that a few years ago, but I was somewhere and this lady had a display out and I love their stuff.. so I got sucked in! Its ok though I wrote on all the invitations that it was doubling as a valentine teaparty and I didnt care if anyone bought anything or not.. just to come visit me!
well, Im not so sure how many will actually come because of this stinking rotten weather we've been having. I dont like it. I can handle winter, but this is the worse one I can remember in a long time. just sooo cold and such crappy roads. there was a bad accident just down my road last thursday morning and a kid (25) that my boys were good friends with was killed when he lost control of his car on black ice at 5:00 am. I knew something bad had happen because I heard mercy flight come over my house. then the other night a lady was killed when she lost control of her car on the crappy roads not too far from here. lots of accidents and cars in ditches.. there was one planted in a ditch down the road this afternoon when i took figgy to the vets... (thought figgy was sick.. but he must have been over what ever it was by the time I took him! thank God!)
So anyways.. bad weather.. sucks! Im having this party in the morning. so Ive been cleaning the house tonight to get most of it out of the way. Im sure at least a few or the girls will brave the weather and we'll have fun regardless.
Ive had a little crafty time this week. I started the little pink valentine panda last night, worked on her this morning and finished her up a couple hours ago. isnt she cute?
The pink wreath Ive been waiting to get to since the girls were over 2 weeks ago making theirs. I love how it turned out.
and then I finally got around to doing something valentinesy on the big chalkboard that hangs on the fridge this morning.
I also managed to rearrange, sort and clean up my craft room this week. (Ive been such a busy girl!) It wont look any different to anyone else, but it took me a couple nights and mornings. so much easier to work when its cleaned up.. it wont last long though. Im a very sloppy creator!
Have you ever had macaroons? Ive seen them in magazines and on line and on blogs and everyone says how wonderful they are. but Ive never seen any anywhere and have never had one. but I found these today at WALMART of all places. there are in the frozen section. they were not cheap and there are only 12 cookies in the box... they were over $7.00. But I HAD to buy them and try them. I ate 4 of them.. and they really were pretty good. not sure I'll buy another box anytime soon. but Im glad I bought them.
OK.. I am exhausted and I need to hit my couch!
sweet dreams and Happy weekend my friends!! I will be visiting and catching up over the weekend for sure!
