Ladies' Spring Brunch

It's been a long time since I've posted to this blog and we've had several different parties and get togethers among other exciting changes that have occurred since I last posted in November. I'm not even sure where to begin so I guess I'll just start with the most recent.

We did have my husband's coworkers come over for a cookout last week; but I didn't do anything spectacular decorating wise and it ended up raining so we had about 20 people in our house instead of outside. I was extremely worn out from all the preparations that I fear I was not the hostess I prefer to be.

In early May, I hosted a brunch for the ladies from our Missional Community from church. I've done this before and it's always been a lot of fun; but this spring brunch was planned without realizing it until after the invitations had been sent, for the Saturday of Mother's Day weekend. Many people were either traveling, had family in town, or had other plans. Poor planning on my part. In the end, two ladies came and well, we had a nice time chatting and eating. While we missed all the other ladies who were not able to come, it was a little easier to visit with the just the three of us and because my husband was out of town, my daughter was with me which opened the door to make it more of a small playdate as one of the other ladies has a child she brought with her as well.

Part of the reason I have been away from blogging so long is that truthfully, I got bored with it and the other part is that I found out shortly after our car accident last November that I was pregnant with our second child. I then spent the next 14 weeks feeling miserable due to morning sickness. So that's pretty much my excuse.

After having some time off, though, I think that my interest in blogging has picked up once again. More to share . . .
