HELLO Monday!

These weeks just keep rolling right along.  It's another Monday and that means another week has gone by.  But, I'm just grateful that the Lord has given me another day and pray he gives me bunches more days, weeks and years. ~smile~
HELLO Office Staff..........
 Hubby is blessed with the greatest office staff and I try to let them know how much they are appreciated by remembering them on such days as Valentine's.  For the past 3 years I have been giving the girls Brighton bracelets for different occasions.   On Friday I added to their collection with another one as a Valentine "happie."  It seemed that they were pretty happy and I gave our son, the male counterpart of the staff, a Sonic card and book.  They truly are a great group!
HELLO Family......
My youngest brother came in this past weekend from DesMoines, so I had a family dinner on Friday night.  Daddy was feeling fairly good and seemed to really enjoy the evening.  These days it is always a joy to see him have a good time. ~nothing like family time~
 HELLO, all things house.........
It has been years and years since I have been to what is called a "Home Show."  It is an annual event in a city nearby and it was this past weekend.  Hubby and I went.  I have decided that the sky is the absolute limit in what you can put in a house.  And, if the sky is the limit then your budget had better be also. ~big smile~  We had a lot of fun looking at the different exhibits and it didn't hurt that it was the most gorgeous day to be out and about.

HELLO my Princess.........
   Have you ever been to The Build-A-Bear Store?  If not, you should go.  It really is quite a neat concept and whoever dreamed it up is no doubt laughing all the way to the bank now.  The Princess' Dad and Mom took her this past Sat. as her Valentine present.  She chose a pony instead of a teddy bear.  She is into all things pony at this time.  And, they (the store) gave her a Princess crown to wear while she built her pony.  They definitely know how to make a little girl mighty happy.

HELLO new week............may you have a wonderful new week and just in case you didn't know, Spring is just 31 days away.  It begins on March 20th!!!
