I'm Back....Again!

Trying to get back into the swing .... of blogging again after a two week hiatus
(I know, I know...you all have missed me!) I had to refresh myself this morning on
"HOW TO BLOG".... Yep...I had even forgot how to put my photos in files!
So this has taken me pretty much all morning to do this post.
(Shhh...don't tell Mr. Hero. I'm supposed to be cleaning house!)
Reading blogs comes so much easier to me than writing blogs.....I just don't understand it.

Well......that's where I been.
READING BLOGS!
And not just any blogs
but blogs like this amazing one!


Yes, it's sad to say I've become obsessed
with all things wedding!
With the kids' wedding coming up December 12 ( just around the corner) I've been skimming blogs and websites for information and ideas to help The Bride. And you would not believe the amazing information that is out there....The blogs....the pictures...the fantastic creative ideas! I know I'm just going to have to share some of them with you....we just might start having
Wedding Wenesdays
for the style obsessed mother of the groom!
Just go check out Style Me Pretty.
You'll see.

This blog is going to be a little long today....
lots of business to take care of....
but stick with me there's alittle surprise coming!



First things first......

How funny! You must have been loggin on to my page right when I was trying out different backgrounds. Let me know how you like this one. Also, I'd love if you would subscribe to my blog, then you could email it to others who would also enjoy it. I am planning to write a book, and having a large subscriber membership will help me get published.

My sweet Patti, you have been missed big time! Glad to have you back in action even if it's just every now and then. Which btw,sounds real good to me!
These last 8 posts have just about whupped me. Believe it or not,I may be just about talked out.
Thanks for the shout out about the party. It's getting a little wild over there so I thought I would step out for a breath of fresh air. I can't stay long though or someone will have grabbed Harry up.
Please put my name in for that book. It sounds wonderful. I need some insight on which way to go from here, if you know what I mean.
Also, I think the Wedding Wednesdays would be wonderful(how's about that for alliteration?) My best friend lost her husband several years ago and has just became engaged to a wonderful man we all love. Her wedding will be in July and I'd love info on helping to make it special for her.
I guess I'd better get back over to the party and break up the fights over Cat Daddy. Women can get so tacky over a sharp dressed man! XXXOOO Debbie
