Lots of Changes!

Hello my crafty friends, so glad to have you stop by! Lots been going on around here, but first let me say thank you for all the beautiful birthday cards!!!! I want to email you all, but I can't. One of the changes going on here. So please for those of you that email with me, here is my new email. dblfarms93 at gmail dot com. Once I start getting email addresses back again, I will email a proper thank you. 

First off there was Bret's graduation. His aunt, uncle and I went up and spent the night Friday into Saturday since graduation was at 10 am. A friend of Bret's who graduated last year drove us over to where graduation was being held, so nice of him to take the old folks. lol I loved that graduation wasn't super long and no one was long winded, besides they had another graduation at 2 pm. Here is a photo of the graduate. So proud of this guy!

We went out to eat at Ruby Tuesdays in Williamsport, PA with two of Bret's Friends. The one in the middle is the guy that drove us to the building where graduation was being held. Both very polite guys!

Bret with his professors. Doesn't the one on the right end look like Jim Carey?!

Bret moved home on Mother's Day evening. That week was a busy one! Bret took me out for a nice meal at Texas Road House on Monday evening and a movie. Then we went SUV shopping. Bret wanted a vehicle that would be easier on gas to drive to work. Here is his new to him SU, a 2014 Ford Edge! So nice y'all!!!

Then we got new cell phones and started packing getting ready for our trip down South. My birthday gift my Bret. Spent time with my aunt and uncle and a tiny bit of time over at Myrtle Beach. Someone brought a python snake on the beach and that spoiled Bret's whole day. He was out of there! Here's a photo of Bret before the snake came. 

But the best part of the trip was going to Easley SC to see Momma Mary! It was a brief visit but so fun. I hope to get back one day and spend a little more time with her. We had a great time visiting and talking. She is just like she is online-just the sweetest! Bret occupied himself with his phone while Momma Mary and I chatted. lol Plus he was tired from all the driving he did. 

So once again, I thank you for all the beautiful birthday cards. When I got home I had a bunch to open and it was so fun! I also thank the ones that tucked a little something, something inside as well. You are all so sweet and so good to me! I also thank you for sticking with me as I work through things, hoping it goes better now that Bret is home to stay but we will have to get used to being with each other once again. lol Thanks for stopping by and getting up to date with me. You all bring so much sunshine into my life and I really do appreciate you all so much. One day I will get to visiting you all once again. Bear with me as lots of things going on this summer. 

Crafty hugs,

Well don't I feel like a dope! I did not know when your birthday was and therefore never got to send a card. Bummer! By the looks of it, it was a happy occasion with your son's graduation and your trip down south! Great photos of you, Bret and Mary - I'm so glad you got to meet in person and spend a little time together! I made note of your new email and deleted the old one, but now if you'll give me your birthday, I'll be sure to make a note of it and get a card out to you next year! Happy Belated Birthday and welcome back home again!

Congratulations to Bret! Don't worry about not being around for a while. Life gets in the way of blogging and crafting sometimes and that's okay. Sounds like you had a nice trip and how wonderful you got to meet Mary in person. She is a sweetie. You and Bret will fall into a routine and it is nice to have him there. Enjoy the summer. Thanks for the update of your new email. I am making a note of it and keep in touch.

The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested
to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My
iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
