I'm baaaccckkk!

Well, let's be honest, most of you didn't even know that I was actually gone! They say ("they" being the blog police, I guess) that you should not blog in advance about going out of town. Not really sure how many people really care, but regardless, I am back now so I can spill the beans.

For the past five years, my husband and I have celebrated each other's birthdays by making a trip to Las Vegas. We did not go in May for my birthday because we were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary in Exuma and although we were a little late for Ron's this year (only a week) we did make it. We usually fly...it is a quick 45 minute flight and you are there. This year because of circumstances and not real great planning, we drove. Five LONG hours, in my book. Going, not too bad...there is always the anticipation of getting there. Coming home...not so much! It seems like it takes twice as much time. Even Ron, who's idea it was to drive in the first place, says from now on, "we fly"!

It is not often that we can say we BOTH came home winners...in fact, I don't think that has ever happened. If I am being honest, he was the bigger winner, but I did bounce back and ended up holding my own!

A quick share today. Remember this little "sneak peek" about a week ago?


You might have guessed (or did I tell you?) that it was another Pinterest inspired project...gosh, I love that site!  Anyhoo, you might have also guessed that I was making a deco mesh wreath...if you did, you were right on!

This is how mine turned out:






Whatch'a think...not bad for my first one, huh?  The problem with these is when to "say when"...some people put a ton of stuff on them, and when I looked back at theirs,  I thought mine could have probably used more crap embellishments on it.   I may add more, but for now, this is how it looks.  I am in the process of making another wreath cuz' they're kind of mine to put together.  I never did find anymore of those cute cupcake decorations though.  Note to self:  if you really like them, buy them all when you see them!

Till next time!

There's a skinny girl who lives inside of me that's screaming to get out...I can usually shut her up with cookies!

for the record... I didn't notice. I'm the kind of girl that pays bills when they arrive, and reads blogs when they land in my reader. No bill? it doesn't get paid--no blog? it doesn't get read. lol
glad you're home safe and sound and don't have empty pockets.
LOVE that wreath. It looks really complicated for me.
