Finally done!

Sorry, I've been MIA lately, but as I explained before, I knew I wouldn't be posting for a couple of weeks....

Well, my son did it! He graduated from HS!!!! The ceremony was was at an OUTDOORS venue for concerts. 

Let me tell was HOT! Even though it was at 7:30 at night, it was still blistering out there. While waiting for the graduates to come out, I heard the lady behind us discussing an earlier graduation that took place at 2:00 pm. She said that she heard that 5 people had passed out from heat exhaustion! I wonder what the administrators of my son's school district were thinking when they booked that facility! I just hope those people were ok.  

The other thing I was upset about was that not only was it so late at night, it was on a Sunday! We weren't able to go out to eat at a decent restaurant to celebrate because everything was closed. We did find some little Tex Mex place that was just ok.

The following weekend after his graduation we had a party for him and it was a huge success thanks to all my family and friends!  My son had a great time and I hope my guests did too.  I was exhausted from prepping for 2 days for this party. I wasn't really feeling like myself and couldn't enjoy the party too much. On top of that, I got some bad news about my aunt in Costa Rica and it just made me sick to my stomach, so I just went to my room and went to sleep.  

Apparently, the party continued on to 2:30 am! lol  I'm glad that even though I wasn't able to, our guests had fun!

Well, now that it's over I can focus on my blog, my etsy store and everything else :)

It's good to be back!

Fewer posts these days

With the graduation of my son, I've got my hands full for the next couple of weeks. I won't be doing much posting or listing on Etsy for these couple of weeks. He will be graduating on Sunday and then his party will be the following Saturday....BUSY BUSY BUSY!

Although I am SUPER proud of him and all his accomplishments, I am definitely ready for the party to be over with :)  It's going to be here at my house and you know how that, cleaning and more cleaning! I would love to replace the deck, but it doesn't look like we'll have enough time for that :(  Let's just say my hubby is better at fixing computers than fixing stuff around the house :)

Wish us luck on the ceremony and will be coming soon!

Who doesn't want new friends?

Welcome to this week's Tuesday Tag-Along blog hop, hosted by Twee Poppets Review and Giveaway! This is a great way to discover new blogs while increasing the number of followers for your own blog. Please feel free to grab the TTA button for your blogroll to help bring more bloggers to this blog hop!

Tuesday Tag-Along

Here's how it works:

Create a new Tuesday Tag-Along blog post. Include the Tuesday Tag-Along button by copying and pasting the code above. (You are also welcome to copy and paste these instructions in their entirety, or any portion of this Tuesday Tag-Along blog post!)

Add your blog name and the URL of your TTA post to the MckLinky below.
Follow Twee Poppets, the hostess blog listed in the first slot. Twee Poppets will follow you back! (Note: If you want Twee Poppets to follow you back, you MUST leave her a comment saying that you are a new follower and leave a link to your blog!)
If you can, please follow the blogs in the three slots before you (e.g., if you're number 20, follow numbers 19, 18, and 17). This is not mandatory, but it will help ensure that everyone who signs up gets a few new followers!
Follow as many other blogs as you want. The more you follow, the more that will follow you back! Be sure to tell them that you're following from Tuesday Tag-Along! You may also want to leave a link to your blog so they can return your follow more easily.
When you get a new follower through Tuesday Tag-Along, be sure to follow them back! It's just common courtesy. :)
The weekly Tuesday Tag-Along MckLinky opens every Monday night at 8:59pm Pacific Standard Time (that's 11:59pm Eastern Standard Time), and the TTA blog post will be posted well in advance of that time. The MckLinky will be open to add your blog until 11:59pm Tuesday night. You then have all week long to visit blogs and return follows!

There is a new list every week. The link you enter one week will not carry over to the next week's MckLinky. Please link up again each week to join in the fun!

Tuesday Tag-Along Blog Hopper of the Week:
Note: To be eligible to be Blog Hopper of the Week, you MUST place the Tuesday Tag-Along button somewhere on the main page of your blog or website (and since I'll be checking for it manually, I must be able to actually find it). If the randomly-drawn winner does not meet this condition, a new winner will be randomly selected. If you do not want to place the TTA button on your site, you are still more than welcome to join in the blog hop, you will just not be eligible to be the Blog Hopper of the Week.

Each week, one blog will be chosen randomly from all the links, and that lucky blog will be placed in the desirable second slot for the following week's MckLinky!
