{catching up}

A lot has happened since the last time I blogged! Last Thursday, Dan and I went to a Red's game with his cousin Eric and girlfriend Erica. It was so much fun and the Red's won! Yay! It was super hot and sunny though, and we all got sunburned. Dan has enjoyed following Josh Hamilton's story, so here is a photo of him at bat (and of the couples) :)

On Friday, we got our new kitchen lighting installed and I love it...but I think we need to install a dimmer because at night it feels like we are under stadium lighting. LOL :) Did a lot of cleaning Friday and Saturday because I had a Mother's Day tea at the house on Sunday for my mom and mother-in-law, plus my sister. I had so much fun decorating for it, and was so glad to have my grandparent's dining table instead of our tiny dinette set...felt much more grown up. I had favors for each lady in pastel painted mini pails, filled with chocolate covered espresso beans, with a handmade (by me) button brooch attached to the handle. The moms received a basket filled with a teacup pincushion, lavendar sachet, scone mix, chocolates and a biscotti. We had lots of yummy finger foods and a variety of tea. I've discovered a new favorite...Celestial Seasonings apple cinnamon...mmmm :)

I'm working on some new stationery items for my Etsy store. I haven't had much success with Etsy yet, but I'm going to keep trying and see how it goes. I have bought quite a few things though...so much talent on that site!

Happy Tuesday to everyone!
