This week's Tuesday Truth is light-hearted (no soul barring truth, or question, from me today).

I took the weekend off from blogging.  Instead I threw parties!

First, I hosted a Scentsy party on Thursday night.  I'm a Scentsy Consultant and I had slowed down with my business. I wasn't sure if I was going to continue however, I got a spark and decided to stick with it.  (I love the product and I just wasn't ready to let it go ;-> ).

Then, the most important party happened on Saturday.  We celebrated Rob turning 50 with our family and friends!  The rain held off and we were able to play in the yard.

Rob works so hard on his garden and I'm happy he was able to show it off.

I had his school pictures, age range 8 - 15, copied onto card stock then cut them out.  While we started to sing Happy Birthday everyone brought out their "masks" to surprise Rob with a crowd of his various years smiling back at him.  (See video here.)

There were lots of stories, lots of laughs, lots of silliness.  (And... lots of beer.  Thanks Bridgeport Brewing!)

How lovely he looks in his gold curls

Jennifer's having a heck of a good time!  (Thanks Jennifer)

After months of trying to get this party together it finally happened.  Rob was happy and so were the guests.  Whew!  (I wish I had taken more pictures.  But those darn hosting duties!)

Yesterday we attended my cousins daughter's 6th birthday and it was a hoot!  Little Riley is amazing and she had a huge Mickey Mouse bounce house right in her front yard!  Again, I missed taking pictures of when my Katie and Lily joined in the bounce house fun, but I heard they had a good time.

It was a great weekend!  How was your weekend?

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Help Your Loved One to Recover

It can be very difficult to have a loved one who is battling an addiction. It can be hard to know what to do or how to help.

You can feel very helpless when you are close to someone who is battling an addiction, and it can be hard to know what to do. You don't want to make your loved one resent you or to be angry with you because you are trying to get them to stop, but you also can't just stand by and watch. An addiction, no matter what it is to, can consume the person who is addicted and it can also be fat…
