Popping In

Just popping in to say Hi!  I can't believe less than two weeks left in January, where is the time going?  I feel that I am having such a hard time catching up with everyone.  I think that after all that merriment I just needed a break!
My Christmas stuff has been down for a couple of weeks now and I have yet to put up any other decor.  My shelves and walls are still empty.  In a way it's nice, seems so clean and open..lol!
The kids were off from school today and have Monday off as well, just as they (and I) were getting back into the swing of things.  Of course, they love it, me on the other hand.....it's all good, just trying to keep them busy:)
Speaking of busy, I joined in on Amy of Bumblebee Lane's Humble Heart Swap.  My partner is Michelle from Simple Pleasures.  Working on her items and will be getting them out to her in a couple of weeks:)
I also joined in on Vicki's (vicki-2bagsfull.blogspot.com) Grow Your Blog Party.  It's a way to meet, greet and follow fellow bloggers.  One of the suggestions for those who are visiting your blog was to introduce yourself and explain why you started blogging.  Not too long ago I wrote a post explaining just this.  If you would like to read please feel free to click on this link: 
Well, off to bed for me.  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend:)

Hi Lori, good to see you. Love the new look of your blog. Wow the kids get a four day weekend, I swear we never got all this time off when I was in school.
Enjoy your weekend!
Be blessed,

Hi Lori, Welcome to the party. I have enjoyed reading your blog and learning more about you. My kids are all grown, but I have three grandsons who are very busy. Summer is spent at horse shows with the older two. The youngest likes swimming. They are all fun and love spoiling them. Have a wonderful afternoon. A New Missouri Friend.

Michelle is my BFF! We get together often (not often enough though, isn't that how like goes?).You will end up with some fun treasures from her(I have actually seen what she is doing for you, hehe!)

Can't wait to see what you think and what you send her!
