Oh, My! I Wasn't Expecting Company!

Yikes! I didn't realize my guest post would be published at The Lady Bloggers today! I would have cleaned up around here if I had realized company might stop by.

Instead, I spent the weekend with family, shopped with my mom, got to see my nephew who decided to come for a visit at the last minute, went to a cookout, and cleaned house. I went into work for a couple of hours on the 4th to get some things done because I'll start my vacation later this week. I even took advantage of the long weekend to waste time work on my new house in Yoville. I did almost everything I had planned to do this weekend except straighten up my blog. Wouldn't you know it?

Oh, well. Please feel free to look around, and make yourself comfortable.

And in a couple of weeks, after my vacation, I'm going to fix the masthead (which was sized for another template)...and add pages...and do all the blog-related things I thought I might get to this weekend. Sigh.

Enjoy your visit, and thanks for stopping by!



  1. I loved your guest post and the points you made. It's so very true. Your blog is lovely, I'm going to follow and look around a bit. I'm looking forward to getting to know you.
    Have a wonderful time on vacation!

  2. Hi! Just came to visit from the Lady Blogger Society! Hope everything is well and I like your blog the way it is! It's clean enough!

  3. The girl on your masthead reminds me of Nancy Drew - very cute :-) (Although of course I'm looking forward to the new version! I'm a big fan of beautiful yet easy to read layouts) --- Thanks for the Lady Bloggers tip - it's great to find another single chick!

  4. Enjoyed your guest post this morning. And your masthead looks fine -- no one would ever have noticed if you hadn't mentioned it! We're all worried about how our own houses -- and blogs -- stand up to scrutiny.

  5. Visiting from Lady Bloggers!

    Just wanted to say I love the voice of your writing. Easy and fun to read. I'm following, so I will be a frequent reader. The subject matter of your blog is just oh-so-perfect for me. So trust me, I'll be back!

    Best Wishes,


  6. I really liked your guest post, and the tips to plan my visits ahead of time! Great advice. :)
    Congrats on teh feature.

  7. i know everyone is going to love it here,
    just as i do.

    sounds like a very busy and fun weekend
    for you!

    have a lovely, restful vacation. . . out of
    the steambath.


  8. Don't cha just hate when you're not prepared for company? LOL Actually, it looks just fine around here to me. :)

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and following from the Lady Bloggers Society! I'm here to return the "follow" luv! Look forward to reading your blog often!

  9. Thanks to everyone for taking time to comment. I won't be able to take part in this weekend's tea party social, but I already know I'll be visiting you all over the next few socials!

  10. I'm visiting from Lady Bloggers!

    I like your blog and your header is very retro. Maybe you could resize it on Photoshop? The new Blogger templates let you change the size of the blog. I think they're great.

    I like most of the same musicians that you do, especially Linda Ronstadt. :)

  11. just came from your guest post over at the LBS... I loved EVERY word you wrote. I hate it when people come for tea but don't behave. I have a little Caption Linky on my blog for Wordless Wednesday (Everyday Mommy blog) and people will link up without following the directions ... really annoys me. If I don't have time to do what is asked I don't link up.

    RE: your blog re-do I did both of my blogs with the new templates and have been very happy!

    Thanks again for your frank tea party comments! I'm following you now!

  12. I was looking for a retro picture of some kind when I ran across the Nancy Drew-like character and decided that was exactly what I was after. (Shayna - I never noticed she looks like Nancy before, but you're right!) I did it Photoshop, so when I can find the time, I'll resize it to fit.

    And NJ Memories - If Jerry Brown can run for Governor of California again, surely Linda's due for a big comeback of her own. =)

    And thanks to all of you who agreed with the LB post on tea party etiquette. I had second thoughts after I submitted it, so I'm relieved to know others were thinking the same thing!

    I feel awful that I haven't had time to visit all of your blogs yet, but after my vacation, I'll come by to visit all of you!
