Scenes from a Reunion

The class of 1981 met for their 3oth class reunion on Saturday, August 27, 2011. I brought our Senior yearbook along to look at. Three of us gals were part of the yearbook staff our senior year. We used the yearbook to try to figure out who people were as they walked by. Yes, they had name tags on but who could see them from a distance? A photographer attempted to take a "class photo" of us and this is what Ken was able to get with our camera. It was a little bit like getting Kindergarteners to pose for a photo! :) Here are the three "Amigas." My friend Missy, who I have known since Kindergarten is in the middle and our friend Gale is on the end. We are the threesome that was on the year- book staff. Oh, what fun we had!! A really cute guy--I should of asked him out!!!
Oh wait, I'm married to him!!!
We had a great time and it was
fun to see people that I hadn't
seen for awhile.

A little houskeeping. 1--Thanks for all the suggestions for clothing choices for my reunion tomorrow. I believe that I have come up with a fun combo but you will have to wait for the pictures! 2--Blessings a prayers for all of you in the path of Irene. May you stay safe and ride out the storm without any problems! 3--I have completed TWO weeks of the school year as of today! It is still hard to believe that we are back at it. We have a good group this year and I feel that we will get a lot accomplished with our students. 4--Mr. Ken had the afternoon off and is buzzing around here getting things done. Right now, he is mowing the yard as I type this post. It is good to have jobs but they do get in the way. :) Have a wonderful weekend ! Watch for the reunion post at a later date. ~Keep on Dreaming~

Fun to Do

Back in July we went to some garage sales in a friend's neighborhood. I found these tea towels at my friend's sale. Not really knowing what I wanted to do with them, I brought them home. Put them in my sewing room and left them. Well in my wanderings I decided to make another tea towel apron. Some of you will remember that I made a set of these for a bridal shower at school a couple of years ago. I ironed one of the aprons and then using Heat Bond, ironed the ribbon I found in my stash on the apron. I wanted a pocket on this apron so using part of the other tea towel I figured and measured for the pocket. Since the fabric is striped, I wanted the pocket stripes to go vertical as opposed to horizontal. I folded the raw edges under before sewing the pocket onto the apron. The side edges were already sewn. After I sewed the pocket on I sewed a line down the middle of the pocket sew it was two pockets instead of one big one. Voila! Here is the completed apron.
Here I am modeling my apron
for you. I think it is very cute and
I like the way the pocket turned out
Tea towels are very inexpensive and
these are so easy to make. If you
need a quick gift this is it!!!!

A Question for You? ? ? ?

I am hoping my blogging friends can help. What would one wear to a place called Brew Top Pub and Patio for a high school reunion? There will be a DJ, dancing, cash bar and hors d' oeuvres. The main menu will also be available. This is on Saturday evening at 7:00 in the evening. It is supposed to be sunny and 87 that day. I'm thinking one would lean on the "business" casual side of clothing choices????? Don't you think that would work? ~Keep on Dreaming~

Can't Wait ! !

We are taking baby steps back to the regular routine. We'll start with a "Thrifty Thursday" post.
Last weekend we stopped a
garage sale and look what
I found! A Charlie Brown Tree!
Some of you know that I love, love
love the Charlie Brown Christmas story. I was so excited to see this
sitting all by itself waiting for me
to see it.
I had seen these in CVS and
Walgreen's last Christmas but
never got one. Now I have one
and I can't wait to put it up for
Christmas! I told Ken this was
our tree this year--he gave me a
funny look. I wonder why? :)
It hasn't even been used! How
much fun is this!!!!

Mission Accomplished ! ! !

This is Spratt Stadium on the campus of Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph, Missouri about an hour north of where we live. My mission today was to take Mr. Ken to our Pro football team's Training Camp! He had NO idea where we were going and even the signs on the the way there didn't give him a clue! Ha. Ha. Here are several pictures from Training Camp 2011.
Mr. Football!!!!
View from the coaches spot.
After camp we went here for dinner.
It was Yum-O!!!
Mr. Ken and a buddy.
A great afternoon of fun
for both of us. It was neat
to be able to be as up close
as we were to the players.
Boy are they BIG!!!

A Secret Mission ? ?? ?

I am taking Ken off today on
a secret adventure!!! Shh!
I'll tell you where later. I
don't want Ken getting wind
of where we are going!
See you soon!!

A B C's and 1 2 3's

Yes, my friends it is THAT time.
I have to go back TOMORROW!
The students start on Monday for
1/2 day as well as Tuesday. Then
begins our year full force with
full days of "fun."
I have had a wonderful time off,
got a lot accomplished and did
some playing too. One can't work
ALL the time. Summer will have to
continue on the weekends now along
with everything else.
Here's hoping this year will be a little
easier on all of us and that we have
more great days than not so great
We'll get back to regular programming
soon. :)

More Birthday Fun

Here is the "Rock Star" birthday boy!
Blowing out the candles.
A happy face--because this
is where we had Ken's
birthday dinner.
Thai food is one of Ken's faves.
So I decided that we would try
this restaurant.
Ken had Spicy Beef--3 on the hot
scale. I had Thai Fried Rice with
Chicken. Very mild. We also
had Crab Rangoon for an
appetizer. Both of us enjoyed
our meals and Ken was very
happy with the restaurant
choice! A real keeper.
Ken said that his birthday was
GREAT and he asked that I
pass on his THANKS to
all you for his birthday wishes.

A Bargain

Aren't these cute?
I was at Michael's last
week when I ran into these--
they are small napkins and
guess what? They were only
.20 a package!
I just couldn't resist them,
they work so well for summer.
