~ Thank You Carol ~

Hi Friends! 

Happy Friday to you! Man am I glad it's Friday! It has been such a long dragging week. UGH!!! When I'm stuck in this office and the sun is shining outside it makes time stand still. lol. So Yay Friday!

Did Zumba at home last night with Jamie! Went well! I sweated like mad. That's good. Jumped on the scale this morning and it said 136. Woohoo! That's good. I've hit that 2 times now... so the question is can I hold onto it through the weekend???? Usually not... but I'm going to try! 

So what's on the agenda for this weekend? Not to much... 

Tomorrow morning bright and early going to Zumba class. Then Jamie and I are going to head out shopping. I'm not sure where we are going yet. Rolling acres is in Marion this weekend. And this is the first Springfield Antique Show weekend. North Shore Primitives is having their Spring Open house this weekend. And I want to take Jamie to the Flower Factory in Columbus at some point to look for wedding supplies. That's our options... we shall see where we land. 

Sunday we are going to jump on the Harley and hit the road if it's as nice as they say it's going to be. :) Yay! Riding! 


I need to send a huge thank you out to the amazingly talented Carol at Buttermilk Creek Farm 

We did a swap of sorts. She had mentioned she loved my pantry cakes so I sent her some as a RAK. Surprise Surprise she sneaked back a package to me. 

She heard from a little birdie I had a liking for all things pumpkin. Wink Wink. 

How beautiful are these? 


And they smell so good! 

And how about this beauty! 


And a wonderful candle!!! 


Thank you so much Carol! You know I love everything!

If you don't know Carol already head over to 

and say hello and check out her work. 

She is an amazing artist and makes the most adorable little mice you have EVER seen! 

Until next time...

Hi Carmen,
what a great surprise from that sweet and talented Carol! I'm a pumpkin-holic too! Love the candle scent, colors and anything pumpkin, who can resist?
Great that you are doing so well with your weight lose, you and Gina are quite the inspiration. I'm working on it slowly but surely.
It's cold and rainy here. No bike riding for a few days ;-(
Enjoy your Harley ride though!

After reading your post about your Zumbaa dventures you inspired me to dig out the Zumba2 Wii Game I purchased and never used in January. To make a long story short I made it thru 2 full songs (ha) but your ears must have been ringing......

Hi Carmen,
Great goodies that you got from Calrol!! Her mice are to die for...very awesome!!
Hubby and I had thought about going to the Springfield Flea Market, until we got a call that our friend's husband passed away and the viewing and furneral is tomorrow. Not sure if we will go over to the flea market on Sunday...might depend on if we get the rain they are calling for.
Have a great weekend.

I love all the fall goodies you received. Sounds like you have a nice weekend planned. Enjoy your shopping and I hope Sunday is nice for you to go riding. It is wet and cool here today, so no working outside today. I am taking a ME DAY today instead. I have some crafting to finish up.
Enjoy your shopping and don't forget to show us pics of what you buy.
