Sorority fun!

We had 25 or 26 gals at the party on Saturday from the two chapters.

The tables were beautifully decorated, with lots of good food to share.KA Yankee Trader party decorations

We had several items for the silent auction.  I wanted that small stool, but got outbid on it.  Bugger.  I seriously wanted it!!!KA Yankee Trader Silent Auction

My present to bring home?  A “Redneck Wine Glass/Candy Dish.” redneck wine glass

And it was filled with something special to our kids:  Grandpa’s “smoke candy.”  Grandpa Les was a smoker before he came into our family, but he used peppermint candy to help him break his bad habit…and shared them with all the grandchildren.  He was actually MM’s late-in-life stepfather, but he was the only grandfather our kids ever had, and we all loved this sweet man.

I love it when something can bring up a sweet memory, especially when it had been tucked away for a very long time.

How was your weekend?

It’s the beginning of a brand new week.  Make it a great one!  I sure will.

Redneck Wine Glass/Candy Dish... too funny. Is that a red wine glass or a white wine glass. It's hard to tell.

Looks like a fun time was had by all! big hugs xoxo

Take the lid off the jar and put a small candle in it. I saw it this way in a store last week. I think it is too neat! They used a mason jar glued to a candle holder.

How fun honey. I love your redneck wine glass/candy dish. That rocks.

What a sweet memory indeed. I'm sure that's still making you smile.

I worked all weekend getting my 206 mailers done for IOBG. It's dues time again. Lots of work, but it's a labor of love.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs and scritches to the babies. :)

I like the memory. I was telling hubby just yesterday that dad hooked onto mints (certs and breath savers) after he quit smoking.

I'm so glad you had fun with the sistas!
