It Was Fun And Games!

It was a lot of fun and games this week!


can't resist a little pug love! (courtesy of Pinterest)
But I'm going to begin with the "games" ~
My sweet he-man has participated in the Senior Olympics here in Tucson for the past four years.  

His event is Power Lifting and we're proud to say that he's  medaled each year ~ Silver the first two years, and Gold the last two years.  






On Friday he dead lifted 475 lbs. and won the Gold!



Lazy, unmotivated, uninspired are words that will never find their way into our vocabulary when it comes to describing sweet man ~ he's our hero and we are SO proud!!  

As if that wasn't enough "fun" ~ I was honored to be invited to a special birthday celebration for my sweet, dear friend, Kiera.

Kiera threw an amazing party where we could visit, craft, scrap, and have just plain old fun ~ for 15 hrs!


thank you "Nadines" for an incredible cake!

Peggie, Kiera, Alex, Karen

Kiera and MaryAnne

Laura and Joan (they're sisters)

Linda and Rhonda (they're cousins)








Laughing, creating, noshing, drinking ~ a fabulous time was had by all!  Thank you, sweet Kiera, for making this possible!!

Now, I did manage to get some things off the workbench this week, as well ~












I hope your week was a good one and that this new one is it's equal.  

Thank you so much for taking the time from your day to visit with me!  
Love and blessings, always ~ 

Karen
