All Balls

Glad to see you Friday........

1. Officially, I know it is isn't summer, but in is summer - most of the time. We really don't have 4 seasons. With the Easter decorations down, I am trying to get in gear. I started with my door decorations from last week and now to my dining room table. I love the theme of "watermelon" for summertime and I LOVE Hobby Lobby......this is my latest buy....

2. Kitchen floor making great progress....I can't wait for the finished product. Hubby is doing such a GRAND job.

3. I participated in the CRAFTERS SWAP with Danielle over at I got my goodies this week from Kimberly at - SCORE !!

4. I started, then I stopped, now I am starting AGAIN. I miss getting my BIRCHBOX - so I re-enrolled and can't wait for the box to arrive. BirchBox
It is a great way to try new stuff and I really do love getting surprises in the mail....

5. ANDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD on my Blissfulanddomestic I am at I have met my first goal. It has been 8 weeks and it sure is a lot harder to get off than it is to put on......think I deserve a dessert today!

HaPpY FrIDay EvErYOnE !!

Thanks to my blogging friend - Pam I was reminded of this. I went yesterday - stepped out of my comfort zone - and painted the hand nails too....I LIKE IT !!

A version this goes around when summer begins. It really is true all year long. I have seen women wear sandals/flip flops in the dead of winter. Heed the warning ladies…..

Rule for Summer Feet
1.  I promise to always wear sandals that fit. My toes will not hang
over and touch the ground, nor will my heels spill over the backs. And the
sides and tops of my feet will not pudge out between the straps.
 2.  I will either be polish-free or vow to keep the polish fresh, intact and
 chip-free. I will not cheat and just touch up my big toe.

 3.  I will sand down any mounds of skin before they turn hard and
 4.  I will shave the hairs off my big toe.
 5.  I won't wear pantyhose even if my misinformed
 girlfriend/co-worker/mother/sister tells me the toe seam really will
 stay under my toes if I tuck it there. (who wears pantyhose anymore??)
 6.  If a strap breaks, I won't duct-tape (my husband would totally do this)
 pin, glue or tuck it back into place hoping it will stay put. I will get my shoe fixed or toss them --
no matter how much it hurts.
 7.  I will not live in corn denial; rather I will lean on my good friend
 Dr. Scholl's if my feet need him.
 8. I will resist the urge to buy jelly shoes (they still make those things??)
 at Payless for the low, low price of $4.99 even if my feet are small enough
to fit into the kids'  sizes. This is out of concern for my safety, and the safety of others.
 No one can walk properly when standing in a pool of sweat, and I would
hate to take someone down with me as I fall and break my ankle.
 9.  I will take my toe ring off toward the end of the day if my toes
 swell and begin to look like Vienna sausages.
 10.  I will be brutally honest with my girlfriend/sister/co-worker when
 she asks me if her feet are too ugly to wear sandals. Someone has to tell
 her that her toes look like they've been dragged behind her car on the way
 to work and no sandal in the world is going to make her feet look good.
 11.  I will promise if I wear flip flops that I will ensure they actually flip and flop, making the correct noise while walking and I will swear NOT to slide or drag my feet while wearing them.
12.  I will promise to have a real pedicure before putting on my summer sandals.
 And finally . . .

13. I will promise to throw away any white/off-white sandals that show
 signs of wear . . . nothing is tackier than dirty white sandals ...

 I'm linking up starting this week with Kati from Incorporating Color and Kate from Classy Living The GBU is exactly what it says. A short version of the weekend....the GOOD, the BAD and (ugh) the UGLY. Everyone has some of those over the weekend.....I am no exception. Link up with us and tell us your GBU.

The GOOD....Had a high school alumni golf tourney,(next year will be my 40th reunion.) I don't play golf and neither does my husband (well, he plays once or twice a year) so we volunteered to help. We manned the registration table and then got on a golf cart and followed everyone around. It was so GOOD to see so many from high school. My husband graduated 2 years ahead of me, so many of our mutal friends were thing I did notice - EVERYONE looks so old !! Whewwwwwwwww - glad I don't (LOL)

The BAD....attended the funeral of my sister-in-laws father. This is always a bad occassion, but then there is good in knowing he is finally free of his pain and suffering. He was a good man, raised an amazing 3 children and made a difference in my life. Rest in peace, J.E.

The UGLY.....oh my gosh....I so fell off my NOT ON A DIET - DIET. Saturday was a stressful day and when I stress, I eat. EAT I DID. But today, I put the weekend behind me and start fresh.......

Happy Monday !
