Really, I’m not missing in action. I just tend to leave on occasion. I’ve had a bit of the blah-blues but, I’m also super busy with photography projects. I love doing photo shoots but the time that I spend editing just about drives me bonkers!! It’s soooo time consuming. No wonder professional photographers make bookoo bucks!! And yeah, I have no idea if that’s how you spell bookoo.
I’ll recap the week though. I did have a bit of fun coloring the ends of my hair. It brightened my hair and spirits. It did take a couple of times but, yeah I got it and I like it and yes, I’m too old to being doing this. So what.
Also, part of my Mama’s day gift was a surprise from Afghanistan. Kind of. My son filled out paperwork before he left for overseas to send a gift for Mother’s day. He thought it would be some oddball gift and just did the paperwork, not thinking much of it.
To both of our surprise an awesome gift came. It contained seeds for flowers and the garden.
A very neat note and little package containing tissues.
3 surprise packages
which were perfume, nail polish and hand lotion. All from wonderful companies that I really like.
Lastly a bracelet from Things Remembered, a company that I order from frequently and I just adore! 🙂
Oh, and also a $10 Sears gift card and a gift certificate to make my soldier a photo album (60 pictures) and have it sent to him for free!!! How cool is that?!?
The program comes out of Virginia and I think it’s an awesome program. How wonderful that they do that for families of loved ones. Love, love, love it!!
I also bought this for myself (a whole $5) while shopping for the hub’s Mom
So hope it works!! 🙂
I had hoped, very much hoped to go to the Union Woodshop to eat on Mother’s day. We had went to my husband’s Mom’s house and she lives about a half hour away from Clarkston, MI. Union Woodshop is a restaurant that was featured on Food Network’s Diner’s, Drive-in’s and Dives…starring my fav chef Guy Fieri. This particular episode Kid Rock and Guy were hosting.
As luck would have it, everyone was game to go…yay! So, I called and there was at least a 2 hour waiting period. Boo! Guess, that’s the price you pay for being on triple D!! 😉 We figured maybe next year we’ll have better luck 🙂
Last but not least, news about my grandbaby!! I just found out the gender Friday and am so happy to share. I am soon to be the proud Granmama of a baby boy. I.can. not. wait. 😉
Here is the little Mama…love my Crissy!! xoxo
Have a great week y’all and I will try to post at least one recipe this week! 🙂
