This is what I would like to be doing right now!
It's been so long since I have posted that you probably THINK this is what I have been doing!!!
The truth of the matter is THIS is what I have been doing:
A little pool time....
 A lot of eating...

A fair amount of shopping....
 A little glass fusion...
 And a lot of entertaining out of state company!
 My sweet, dear friend, Vicki came this past week for Girl time.  We had a great time hitting tons of stores, eating out, going to the pool, a movie, and glass fusion.  
The week before we got to host our longtime, close friends, 
Jon & Ludy Kellett.  They were here to help celebrate my birthday. It was great fun having them at our home and enjoying their company.
We also had a morning visit from our granddaughter. She is now walking and getting into things!!
We are now getting our home ready for the arrival of Bre, Kyle and the boys on Wednesday.  We are so excited to have them here.  We haven't seen them since Christmas.  
BEST OF ALL, Hubby and I are taking everyone (minus Sofia as she is too little) to DISNEYLAND the day after Easter for the week.  I don't know who is more excited, the little guys or the adults!!
Now it's time for me to catch up on some of my blogger friend's sites.  I have been too busy to ready anyone's posts for two weeks.  I'm sure I have missed some amazing crafting creations. So I'm off to blogland.

Celebrate me!

I think so! 
Yesterday was my birthday.  Yep, the BIG 57!  Yikes!!!   Oh well, doesn't matter since I still feel and act like I'm 25! LOL!!
Well, my mind is a little older as I got to my party with my great camera and forgot to put the memory card in.  Total Dork!  So the birthday party pics will be posted when I get them from my daughter later.
But the day was wonderful.  We went to church then out for a nice breakfast.  Later we went to our daughter's for a big party.  Several of our family and friends were there.  Mike BBQ'd for all of us.  
Then it was present time....... I have to admit that I love presents.  Doesn't matter what's inside the package, I just love opening and the anticipation.
Feast your eyes on this incredible gift......
Is this not beautiful????
I was completely shocked and delighted.
The only bummer is that I had to take it to the jeweler today to get it sized down so I won't get it until two more days.
Hubby has definitely scored major points with me!
Here are some of the other great gifts I received....all of them so special.
My sweet granddaughter, Hanna made these fans for me.
Gee, guess she has noticed how often I have hot flashes!!!
A grand time was had by all and I am so thankful for such wonderful
family and friends.
Today Ludy Kellett, who is visiting from Washington, and I went out to lunch at Joe's Cafe and then home to lay out in the sun at our pool for 3 hours.
Now Hubby is BBQ'ing dinner and we will eat out on the patio. 
Life is certainly good!
XOXO Nancy

Whew, am I worn out....soooo tired!
Obviously too tired to blog!
Busy too.
Gosh, I can't even remember what I have been doing over the past couple weeks. 
But I do know that I worked two 9 1/2 hr. days on Wed. and yesterday and that really kicks my butt. It was Girl's Night Out at the shop and I didn't get home until 10pm last night.
On the up side, we have our great friends of
30 years, Jon & Ludy Kellett, visiting us this week from Washington.  We've had fun catching up, eating out and tomorrow we will all go country dancing!
Last week our church held a huge Rummage Sale and I scored this awesome brand new birdcage for $10!
I have absolutely NO idea what I am going to do with it, but I love birdcages and I couldn't pass up the deal.  
This morning we had the pleasure of a surprise visit from our granddaughter, Miss Sofia....
who by the way, is now walking!
She is a happy girl.
One of these days I really need to get crafting again.  I just can't seem to get in the mood.  Hoping the arrival in a week and a half of my super creative friend, Vicki, will inspire me.
Time for PJ's and bed!
XOXO Nancy
