It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Happy Monday!

What has happened to the year? My parents, Husband's parents, Daughter and Boyfriend all came over for dinner, Son too but he lives here. Husband wasn't able to come home early so this time I did most of it. Turned out nice, good food and great company. Bought a new tablecloth and serving dishes ;) The serving dishes were so nice, my MIL is going to purchase them also.

I plan on finishing up gift wrapping this week, going to the post office with everyone else, and taking my Mom shopping since I've got the week off, plus delivering a couple of gifts that didn't get taken care of this week. I also hope to experiment with some new recipes :)

I'm also going to re-vamp my challenge blogs so apologies for the huge amount of posts/duplicates.

Happy Holiday, be safe!

Hope everyone has a great week planned.
