Gentle Readers and Dear Friends - Monday finds me here with a no snow report. Not a flake - Not at a smidge - the only cold spot was the fridge. A little silly this morning!! The whole "storm" sort of blew through here on Friday and it was on the coldish side but never enough for any kind of freezing anything. Then it was cold again on Saturday but by Sunday it was bright, sunny and warm enough to even throw the sliding door open on the veranda for a breeze or two. Ah, the fickle weather.
For the most part our weekend focus was on Aaliyah's 2nd Birthday Party we had at our house on Sunday. Here is a snap of the Birthday Princess.....
It was a Tinkerbell Theme event. We ordered a St Honore cake from Dianda's (our favorite Bakery) - here is a snap of that scrumptious thing....
All tarted out with Tinkerbell and the Tinkettes. We had quite a few little kiddos and family in for lunch and cake. I made some stuffed shells for the adults and we had pizza for the kids. For a little kids party it sure took a lot of running around - back and forth to the party store for Balloons, gift bags and stuff to go in said bags, games and prizes. By the end of the day we were just whipped.
Did you see the Oscars last night?? I promised myself to keep things on an up note - all I can say is that they seemed to keep the show under time and sort of moving along. No real surprises award wise. There were some odd outfit choices. I feel - and I'm sure I'm not alone in saying this - It would seem that if you pay a stylist a bazillion buckaroos that they wouldn't put you in a colour dress that is unflattering or not tell you that you hair is a rats nest in need of a rat!!!! If you aren't going for the rat then the very least it needs a brush through it!! Buy a gosh darn comb for goodness sakes!!!!!! I was again disappointed in the memoriam section of the evening - again finding it odd that they would leave out actors that had passed during the previous year???
Oh well, there you go - no stitching at all over the weekend. Thanks for stopping by - do come again!!
