Happy Homemaker Monday

OH my goodness... where has the time gone?!?! Last post I made for HHM was right before I left for Florida in October. What a whirlwind of events.... I had the best time down there with my brother and his family.

Seeing my sweet lil Tucker was such a joy!! Lots of relaxtion and me time. Just what I needed. Then it was back to MI, the cold temps and the hustle and bustle of holidays. The sickies invaded our house at Christmas and are still lingering, so ready for them to just leave! Its a new year and time to get things back on track!! I have missed visiting with you all!! Happy Monday everyone!!

I am linking up with Diary of a Stay at Home Mom. Head on over to find some other great bloggers.

  1. Glad to see you back. I've been seeing those temperature blankets, they are so nice!
    Seems like you had a great vacation in Florida with family. The sickies are lingering here too, I want them to go away NOW.
    Have a great week

    1. Its good to be back... so missed everyone!! Florida was such a fun time away!! I miss my lil guy though!!

  2. Love the idea of the temperature blanket, it will be so colourful and pretty! One of my favourite things is to snuggle under a warm blanket too.

    Have a lovely week!

    1. I am loving working on it... even though its a once a week project for me.. its still fun to work one! Great year long project!!

  3. LOVE your quote! That afghan color is really pretty. Have a WONDERFUL week.

    1. Thanks! I can't wait to see how it will turn out as the year goes along!!

  4. Hope you feel better! It's the worst being sick around the holidays and then, it always seems to linger (probably because the holidays are so busy). Hope you have a wonderful week with lots of time to snuggle under warm blankets.

    1. Oh my... two weeks with the sickies was enough! I have totally degermedified my house... stocked up on Lysol and will try to keep the germs at bay!! LOL

  5. I guess a stumble IS part of the dance... part of life's dance...

    1. I think so... just turn that stumble into a beautiful move.. lol

  6. Love your quote! And that turquoise for your temperature blanket is my absolute favorite color! Hope you are having a good week!
