Birthdays, Thursday, and sappy mommy posts…

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you had a great week and have some fun plans for the weekend.

We’re having a birthday dinner for my mother-in-law on Saturday and I can’t wait. The colder weather has completely gotten me into the fall-spirit. I went shopping yesterday and got red table cloths and beige placemats for the dinner, and one of my friends (who’s a super talented decorator) is letting me borrow some fun centerpieces. I can’t wait to set the tables. I’ll have to take a picture and maybe post about it. :)

A note about next week: I’m launching something new here on Thursday, so be sure to stop by and join in. It should be a lot of fun!

Don’t forget to stop by on Mom-Monday too. I just finished writing my post and couldn’t get through it without crying. You’ll see why on Monday. It was one of those sappy mom-moments, for sure.

So what are you all doing this weekend? Do you have any plans? I’d love to hear about them!

Talk soon,


  1. My son has his first t-ball game. *grin* I'm interested to see what happens, since five year olds are adorable.I hope you have a good weekend and congrats on the table decorations. They sound great!

  2. Val

    Glad I found you. Can't wait to come back Monday for your sappy mommy post. I love those!!

  3. I hope you have a wonderful Saturday celebration! We have a community picnic this weekend and perhaps a visit to a museum :)

  4. Definitely post pictures…maybe it will get me in the mood. We are making it through our second day with a cast on!

  5. Have fun!! Happy B-day to her. I on the other hand will be taking care of a sick child or helping my dad put on a new roof on his back porch. FUN FUN FUN!!

  6. Genny,I linked back here to thank you for visiting Steve's blog. I saw the "vote" gadget. I started to vote but then I had to register or something. If this is to vote for your blog being a good one I'd be glad to do it! I'd just like to know a little more about what all it is.

  7. Oooh, I can't wait to see your table! :) Definitely post about it.As for us, we're trying to kick this flu bug (oink! oink!) and I am scheduled to work a few hours tomorrow. Other than football, and household stuff, just planning on hanging out with the fam and enjoying the cooler temps. This is the 2nd day we've opened our windows since we moved to the South. Oiy!Friday Hugs!

  8. I ma going hiking tomorrow, and maybe Sunday too. Even when it's rainy it is so wonderful to get out there. Your party sounds so pretty. I bet your MIL thinks she won the DIL lottery:)

  9. We have lots of family moments in store. Tomorrow is soccer day (if it doesn't rain). Our local homeschool group has a just-for-fun league for dads and kids to play together! Then we are off to a hotdog and s'mores roast at my parents'. On Sunday, my husband and I are doing something we rarely do…we are taking the baby and going shopping for the day. The older children get to spend the day with grandparents. How fun!

  10. Happy B-day to your MIL. Hope the festivities were divine! And do I have to wait until next Thursday to see what's new? I HATE to wait!

  11. I'm loving the fall weather here. Hope your dinner on Sat. went well; I'd love to see pics of the table.Looking forward to seeing what's new on Thursday.
