Happy Father's Day
It was a busy weekend with my niece Caitlin's wedding and all. I didn't get to wish my Dad a Happy Father's Day on The Muse yesterday, because the wedding celebration continued with brunch. It turned out to be a beautiful day for Cait and Jon and Dad. The sun was shining and there were lots of good memories flying around the patio at my sister Gloria's.
Love the shot of me and Dad below. I'm a good few pounds heavier than I was in this shot, so that's a little depressing. OK, I'm over it. I just really like the picture.
My Dad is Mr. Fix It, and I'm not talking about building repairs although he can do that too. He's just a natural born problem solver. He's also Mr. Get It Done. If you need something done, just ask him, whether it's something small or big. Raytheon figured that out and would have him handle tough cases to 'fix it and get it done'. We're all lucky to always have him on our side. He also feels at home with a microphone in his hand, has been known to dress up as a nun.................
.....and sang every word of You're Nobody 'Til Somebody Loves You to Cait when they danced at her wedding Saturday. That of course made Cait cry. Of course, a coffee commercial would make Cait cry. Actually, the wedding festivities were quite emotional. We can all blame that on my father, he's the emotional one we all got it from. I blew this picture of him and Cait (with Cait's bridesmaid Crystal in the back) up for Father's Day. Everyone loved it. Grampy and Cait. Yesterday my father wore one of his 'Cait' tshirts to the brunch. You know, those tshirts you can make in the mall. Cait was about 12. It was classic.
Here's to you Dad. Happy Father's Day- You're the best! Hope you enjoyed your day. I sure did. It was fun sitting around the table reminiscing.
What I Found & Heard at the Party
As usual, lots of great stuff popping up at the Gotta Have It/Gotta Blog It Link Up Party which is still going on!
Reshma of Ahkriti is a regular at these link parties, but her jewelry is way beyond 'regular'. It's more like......um.....GORgeous.
The deep midnight blue color of this piece is spectacular.
Speaking of color, you can visit Reshma's blog Color Canopy and you'll find this great watermelon and feta recipe. Mmmmm. Salty and sweet.
One of the wonderful things about etsy, you will find artists and crafters of every medium. Multiples. All talented in their own right.
What a sweet thank you note by the lovely Sara from Royal Regards.
Rational Designs' to pink note cards are sure to make a statement.
How cute would these be on top of cupcakes? LittleSugarTops will make your cupcakes even happier with fondant creations that are sure to bring a smile.
Need even more fun? How about this Super Hero PJ Pillow from fAveritte Creations? The cuteness knows no bounds.
I mean, what kid wouldn't want love pulling their PJs out of one of these at a sleepover?
Too cool for school. (That's why they're for a sleepover.)
One more thing in the fun category......the GIVEAWAY!!! If you haven't entered yet, there is no time like the present. There are serious quantities of great stuff to be had.
Enjoy the day. The sun is trying to come out here. It's quite coolish today but the rest of the week is supposed to be in the 80s and 90s. Going to do my best to get the pool ready toot-sweet.
Ciao for now,
