Well, this morning was a VERY early one for me. I had to arise at 3:00AM to catch a 5:55AM flight headed to Virginia. My goodness, I'm an early riser but for goodness sake, 3:00AM is entirely too early. But, one has to do what they have to do and I do like the fact that I will be arriving at my destination before noon. Meanwhile, here's what's been happening...............
I belong to a group of gals that play Bunco once a month. What that means is 12 of us gather at one of our homes for a very mindless game and a whole lot of fun and fellowship. I hosted the group last week and I had such fun preparing for it. I found the zebra place mats at the Dollar Tree and thought they would be "pizazzy" and cute. I had planned to just use disposable plates and while in the Dollar Tree I was on the aisle that has the dishes and such and happen to see these "real" black dishes. Well, they were $1 a piece and I simply could not resist because 12 disposable ones would likely have been half of the cost of these. So, they came home with me and I accented with the red napkins and red dessert plates. Yes, the clean up was much more time consuming for sure but it was fun and I'm thinking I'll probably have another excuse to pull all this out and use it again for some other occasion.
It's Spring, my favorite time of the year. Once I took the Easter decor down then I added just a few touches of spring. I love this wrought iron piece that can serve as a candle holder or a container. I've always just used it for a container and I love the lemon and limes for spring. The added greenery and gerber daises make me smile every time I see them.
Last Thursday evening was our annual Ladies Spring Event at our church. This year's theme was "The Bride of Christ." Our speaker did a drama presentation on we as women being the bride of Christ and how we can never do anything to separate us from His love and acceptance if we have accepted Him as our Savior. A whole lot of work goes into this event each year. There were 8 decorated tables and each one decorated as one for a bridal reception. It's always such fun to see the different creations that ladies come up with. It was another fun evening of great food, fellowship and inspiration.
I'll "see" you when I get back from my beautiful home state of Virginia. Enjoy this new week and make every day count!
