Catching Up

Well, it's catch up day here.

As in catching up on errands that needed to be run. (Tide, anyone?)

As in catching up on cleaning things that needed to be cleaned. (Fresh sheets, kids?)

As in catching up on putting things away from the weekend. (Where DID I find that water pitcher anyway?)

As in returning all the things I borrowed from friends. (Two trips, perhaps?)

My marathon party weekend has ended, and I must say it was really fun. A long time ago I took a spiritual gifts class and discovered that I have been cursed blessed with the gift of hospitality. I do sometimes think it's both a blessing and a curse. A blessing in that I get such satisfaction out of cooking for people and serving them and making them feel welcome in my home, but a curse in that I'm just so worn out after it's over.

Plus, I miss them all. I'd like them to come back . . . .after I've had a nap.

Today I'm also catching up on writing some blog posts that need to be written. I have two exciting giveaways this week that you DO NOT want to miss.

Tomorrow I'm giving away something I count in my Top 10 Favorite Gifts of all time. You'll have to check back to see what it is. It's so great that you just might want to keep this one for yourself.

And on Friday I will have a super-fun giveaway for the coffee lover in us all. I'm actually quite jealous that you guys get to win this one.

So stay tuned while I get caught up today. And come back this week for your chance to win some really great gifts.



  1. Love catching up! Oh, and I love your blog layout and colors! So inviting!

  2. I love puttery catch up days. Especially with the memories of all your parties fresh in your mind. Hope you catch a wee nap as well.

    You've got me curious on your fun give aways. I am planning my first one for the end of January . . . my one year birthday of beginning blogging.
