Not a Review!

Well family and friends, you may be wondering what is happening to my blog. All you see are reviews lately. What has happened to life with the Masons? Well, I signed up to review products and we are having fun with them. It just takes up a bit of my blogging time researching each item and putting it all together. This years reviews are coming to a close next month although you'll find a another hopefully today from me. I will get back to my regularly scheduled blog soon.

In the meantime -- we are all doing well. Zippy has started walking (and yes, I know I have yet to thoroughly blog about turning one). He started taking steps last week and today especially he is taking off. Last week was a hectic one as he was cutting a molar and had a cold on top of it. Such a crabby, clingy baby, which for the most part I don't mind. Afterall, who doesn't want to cuddle with a baby? But I had a lot of party preparation to get done.

This past weekend we hosted a 50th Wedding Anniversary surprise party for our Associate Pastor and his wife, who also happen to be my Great-Aunt and Uncle. At the suggestion a few months back of using our house I thought it would be a good way to get our house clean and maybe get a few projects done too. Well, that is a really dumb reason because I have found that just because you desire to get a project done doesn't mean you suddenly have additional time. Needless to say, I only got my kitchen painted and that was okay. Instead we concentrated on majorly cleaning. Didn't get to all of the bedrooms but they have doors. I had fun and "relief" from the cleaning with my new chalkboard!


All in all the party was wonderful! Unfortunately, it was a rainy day and the boys directed cars to park and were soaked by the end of that. And everyone had to pack inside so we were cozy with at least 100 people. But we pulled off a surprise and I think everyone enjoyed it. Now, to keep the house clean that is the challenge!


 We've been going on a couple of field trips. Soaking in the beauty of the season although it has passed much too quickly, and now getting ready to celebrate two birthdays.

I am also am so excited that my cousin and his wife are headed to China this week to bring their precious little girl home! I have been following blogs Heather recommended of people who have gone before them and getting familiar with all they will experience and am emotional just pondering it all. I almost wish I could tag along it all amazes me. Looking forward to meeting Nora in a couple of weeks!

Can I just say that I LOVE your mantel? It is beautiful!!!!!

Congrats to them on 50 yrs. That is so rare anymore.

Sounds like y'all have been busy. I couldn't agree more that just because I want to get a project done means that I will suddenly have extra time to do it. Something has to give somewhere.

Love the chalkboard and your artsy presentation---just beautiful! And the mantel display is just gorgeous (especially love that little hand reaching to keep the balloon afloat). :) I assume I'll be seeing you sometime soon as we welcome home our long-awaited Miss Nora! XO
