fun: adjective ~ amusing, entertaining, or enjoyable


A new rooster joined the flock on top of the refrigerator.
Say hello to Mr. Blue with White Polka Dots.
I found him at HomeGoods, and bonus ~ on clearance!


 Another fun thing and total last-minute impulse buy near the checkout:
Cool paper straws. Makes drinking water a little more exciting.
That's my son's mustache glass, by the way. 


Much more exciting though, is meeting a blogger friend in person!
On Tuesday, I had the pleasure of meeting Jane from Blondie's Journals.
We'd been emailing back and forth for quite awhile and finally decided to meet
for lunch. We had a gabfest over our meals at The Cheesecake Factory.
Jane is so lovely and sweet. It's funny how you can meet someone in person
and feel like you already know them because you're familiar with their blog.


Hope you've had some fun in your life this week!

  2. Cute little rooster and it looks nice with your collection. That's so nice to be able to meet up with a blogging friend. We really do feel like we know the person after reading so much into their lives and sharing their interests. That's a great photo of both of you. I'll be meeting two ladies this month that I have come to know through our blogs. I'm really looking forward to it. Deb

  5. Very cute rooster!
    We know Jane and her hubby and they are the most wonderful couple!
    We met through blogging too, and have been getting together on a regular basis for about 4 years now.
    So glad you got to meet her!
