Goodbyes.....and other stuff......



Saturday I stopped by Sharons
to say the last goodbyes......so sad to see the house empty and hollow, but Im sure she will work her magic on the new place and it will be the new party house....best of luck, and happy trails and all that good stuff, and I cant wait to hear about your adventures!!!!

We had friends over yesterday for a BBQ, and they brought lobster tails they had caught, I cannot say yummmmm enough times.....so I wanted to try a new potato recipe...these are smashed potatos from Pioneer Woman.com.....just boil some red potatos til they are done, put them an a cookie sheet that has olive oil on it....smash them with a potato masher, and if you are like me and your masher fell behind the stove 4 years ago, just use a fork....then paint them with olive oil, sprinkle kosher salt, fresh ground pepper, and whatever herbs you want, chives or parsley, fresh, are nice.....then pop them into theoven at 450 until they are nice and golden brown, about 20 minutes or so.......yummy!!!!


Pokey decided to climb off his cage when no one was looking and make his way over to our friends back, and before anyone knew it he was on his neck.....the look on his face....priceless........no blood was drawn.....a good thing!





My friend Sue and I managed to get in some scrapping while the boys watched the dodger game....this is the year mini book that Glenni made me for Christmas....I worked on the May pages, from my trip....I learned a lot of new tips and Im loving my book a lot more right now, thanks Glenni, and thanks Costco.com!!!
My friend Sue LOVES to scrap and she has every tool, paper, gadget and new thing that has ever come out....she has been scrapping for about 8 years, and you can imagine how many albums, mini books and pages she has made......only thing is, she has never put a picture on a page!!!!!!!! She just loves to work with all the fun papers, embellishments, stickers, etc.....but if you look in those books and albums...NO PICTURES......lololol..she says its because she needs to organize her pictures......lolololol......ok I said, 8 YEARS, enough!!! I gave her homework.........I will keep you posted!
Happy Memorial Day and enjoy all those BBQs out there in blogland!!!!!

Vary sad for you that Miss RG is on her way to another house...but I am sure you will be catching up with her as often as you can....will be an excuse for a road trip party!
