Star, maybe the reason you are not invited to those parties is your "friend" takes credit for making the cake and doesn't want you to know. She sounds really awful!

Christmas Countdown - 2013

Good evening, friends!!

How was your afternoon?

We had a nice time at the Festival In The Pines! Did a lot of browsing, wanted everything, but behaved myself
They had beautiful crafts, wood work, jewelry, birdhouses, art, etc.
And the food!!! Yum!! Did some sampling!!

The heat was crazy, though. I would have liked to stay longer, but it was just too hot & humid.

So, I'm back outside now! Catching up on magazines, on the deck. At least it's much more tolerable now.

I am burning a new scent of wax in my Scentsy pot- Apple Bobbin'. It smells great!! Very Fall like.

Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend so far!!

xx

Take it how you want to, it's just my opinion, but it sounds like you paid your dues - I wouldn't do anymore cakes for her. Like you said, you can't do it for free!

Good evening, everyone! Hope you're all well. Not much going on here. I'm just getting ready to make some things for work tonight. It's my friend's birthday - I am making a "death by chocolate" trifle dessert and buffalo chicken dip, for a party for her.

What are you all doing tonight? Hope you're all enjoying the weekend so far! I am off tomorrow so I'm looking forward to it!

Talk to you all tomorrow! Enjoy the rest of your evening! God Bless and keep smiling!

Happy Birthday to your friend!!

We are going to take Harlowe for a nice long walk, after the sun goes down. Then, turn on Netflix & find a movie.

Enjoy your day off tomorrow!!
