Graduation ~ Test Results ~ PAFA Win ~ Creations

Good Sunday Morning Everyone!
I've been wanting to write a post all week.  Not only does life get in the way, but blogger really screwed it up!  The only thing good about blogger being down is I did get some house work done instead of sitting in front of the computer.  Oh well onto bigger and brighter things!  It's going to be a long one!

As you all know from my last post I spent Mother's Day weekend with my sisters in Sheboygen, my sister Dawn graduated from Lakeland College.  It was a very busy weekend!
On Sat. when we got there we took in the scenery ~ This is the beach area along Lake Michigan ~ Beautiful!

We found an awesome restaurant called Field to Fork ~ it reminded me of an old fashion soda fountain shop ~ with the long counter and the round stools that you can spin on, wide plank pine board floors, brick walls, bakery items, cooks behind the counter cooking your food, coffee bar, and a fresh juice bar!
The name says it all ~ All their food is made with natural, local ingredients.

After lunch Dawn had to go to rehearsal at the college (which is way out in the boonies in the middle of a corn field) then off to find our hotel, change our clothes for the banquet, back to the college for the banquet dinner (way out in the boonies) The dinner was fantastic!
This is our table ~ isn't it pretty!

This was what we had for dinner, chicken stuffed with asparagus,fresh cooked veggies, and red potatoes

Sunday was the ceremony, there were 840 students graduating that day.
My sister Dawn graduated with a Bachelor Degree in Business!
Congratulations Dawn! You deserve it!

 I had my check-up and got my test results from having a LEEPS procedure done.
My doctor was really late for my appointment ~ no complaints here ~ if she wasn't late I probably would have been in the middle of a bad accident.
There was a 12 -vehicle pileup on US 41 ~ No fatalities, but plenty of injuries.
There must of been an angel watching over me. I was like 6 cars behind this accident in bumper to bumper traffic.

 I would like to give out a BIG THANK-YOU to all the talented artist over at the PAFA for hosting a fun filled giveaway for the month of May.  
You can visit their site here:
I won ~ YIPPEE! A beautiful hand painted sign from Dee over at Ice House Crafts

Thanks Dee your sign is awesome!  I Love it!  You can tell you put a lot of love into it! What a great Mother's Day gift.  You really made my day!
Thanks again to Dee and the members of the PAFA for hosting this wonderful giveaway!

Thursday was also a very hot and humid day ~ in the high 70's.  I was hoping to get some yard work done, but instead they needed some help at the restaurant ~ so in I went.  By the time I got out of work the storms started moving in.

No yard work for me today!
My husband was trying to get our supper cooked on the grill before the rain hit ~ didn't happen!

Such a sport!
The rest of the week has been cold and rainy ~ except for today the sun is shining!
 YIPPEE it looks like it is going to be a nice day!

I did manage to get some creations done this past week. Here's a few ~ I don't want to overwhelm everyone with everything I made.

A Primitive Sampler Pinkeep ~ Pattern by: Country Rustic Primitives

The Olde Homestead Pillow   Pattern by: Sami's Stitchery's

I finished up some signs ~ here's a couple of my favorites.

Well there you have it ~ my week in a nut shell!
Thanks for taking the time to visit!
Until we meet again ~ Prim Blessings!

First congrats to your sister for graduating. You must be very proud of her.

Yeah! Yippee! On the no cancer test! That's fantastic news. I'm sure you are on cloud nine!

I am glad that you like the sign that you won. It was such a pleasure to create it as mothers are truly special.

Nice that you got some grilling time in...too bad about the working outside in the garden beds.

Have a great Sunday.
