What's Happening at the home of ~one vintage hag this week, today & the weekend. "Pay It Forward"

It's been an excited fun filled week, never finished ~ always enjoying our days, always
looking forward to the next day. There's always much to Look Forward to everyday. Today, for me "catch up" ~ a Friday off hardly ever happens so by days end I'll be finished with all that stupid paperwork, taxes & bills. My goal for the day at home.

Unc Tarheels will be playing in the NCAA tournament this weekend ~
That's who we are pulling for ~ I'm from Charlotte originally ~ have many family members
still there ~ family that attended this great university ~ my Dad loved UNC so does Clayton.
So our pick ~ The Winner UNC 2009 NCAA Tournament.

Ty Lawson has had a great season. What a great player.

"Physco Hot" is also a terrific asset for "our team". Who do you want to win?

Meet Amanda ~ also known as "J" ~ she is Lindsey's "Maid of Honor" in her July Wedding.
Then, Lindsey will be her "Matron of Honor" in J's October wedding.
Beautiful Sweet Gal inside and out. Great Engagement Pictures ~ loved looking at all of them.
Wishing she and Eli the best as they begin life together as a "couple". I'll get to see Lindsey's engagement pictures Sunday ~ exciting... going to her home for dinner.

Stacey is still doing well in Clearwater ~ got new pictures this week. They had
a day off an drove to Naples, Florida where her Dad's parents ~ her grandparents
have been for several months enjoying the pretty weather in their nice camper.

She saw an alligator in the water... how cool is that? Of course where alligators are concerned I worry about Stacey & Brett in Florida ~ I know that she has good "smarts" and will keep her distance.

Dean, Stacey & Joyce ~ "Pal Pal & Mal Mal". Sweet folks ~ just like her Dad ~ Jeff.
Very glad they took this day trip and had so much fun in Naples with family.
This week's quote sent in a "goodie box" ~ just for "my darling sweetheart Niece ~ Stacey".

It is our choices... that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.
~J.K. Rowling (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets)

We missed "Grey's Anatomy" last night ~ it wasn't on ~ so "Marley & Me" the movie.
Have you seen that? Get your tissues out when you do. I'm a sucker for animal movies ~ adore them so it gets hard to watch when there are "sad parts".

A surprise... remember ~ I had a surprise for you...

"Pay It Forward"

O.K. ~~~ Here's what happened~~ Deborah (The Painted Nest) was cruzin' the blogs and came across ~~"The French Bear" who had this wonderful idea~~"Pay It Forward"~~~~well come to find out she "Paid it Forward" then I saw this post on Deborah at~ "The Painted Nest" blog. She had this post ~ ~ that's where it started for me! Here's how it works: If you are one of the first three people to leave a comment on this post, sometime in the next few months (I'll do mine sooner) you will receive, via. snail mail, something cool that I've made by hand ~Just For You !!! There is no obligation, no worries. The only request is that you include this logo on your blog and the next three people do the same. And on it goes!!! This should be loads of fun! Leave your comment below and start watching the mail!!!

  1. I love these blog gifties! I have actually received something from a blogger as far away as New Zealand. Paying it forward is a way to live your life gently and with respect as we never know what hidden angels are leading us to good things. We must pay all things forward and I hope I get to pass the "One Vintage Hag" baton. Dari
