Snail Mail Project & Weekend WrapUp



I've been working on matching up partners for the Snail Mail Project and I'm almost done. There's just one hitch - I have an uneven number of participants! So if there's anyone else who wants to join in please let me know! Remember that it's ongoing, so it doesn't matter when you sign up.
Also, there were a couple of you who didn't leave me any contact information.
So, Miel Abeille and The Preschool Teacher, please send me an email with your email address so that I can give it to your partner! Thank you! Also, Jenn from Seizing My Day, I can't locate an email address for you (your comments come up as "No Reply" in my inbox).
Other than that, if you signed up and have not received partner info from me, please let me know so I can fix that. And thank you all for participating!

This weekend, for the most part, was pretty uneventful, but in a good way.
Friday was Shelbie's 8th grade social, and I left my camera in the car......the car that John took to work! So I have no pictures. *sigh* However, I'm going to dress her up again and take some and post them later! She had a really good time; that's the most important part!

Saturday was spent working in the house and yards. The entire day!

Sunday, I slept most of the day because I could NOT sleep on Saturday night for some odd reason.

Anyway, it was a nice relaxing weekend, which I think we all really needed! I do have a few pics to share.

my boys gave me potted flowers for Mother's Day, and we planted them in the front of the house.

Elayna the All Star, practicing for softball

Shelbie was helping Elayna practice....and goofing around a lot too!



I hope you all had a great weekend,
and don't forget to sign up for the Snail Mail Project if you'd like!

Do you have any other UK participants for your Snail Mail project? I love the idea but I think it would get expensive to keep sending things overseas...

I love those kind of lazy weekends. How great that Shelbie is helping Elayna practice for All-Stars, I bet she'll be awesome.

I'm really looking forward to the Snail-Mail project. I'll be sending out a 'get to know ya' letter this week.

I swear I didn't forget about your button! We were so busy all weekend, I will see if I can make it today.

I always think the "Snail Mail" things are such a great idea, but I'm AWFUL about writing letters, mailing packages, and so forth. LOL Have fun with it! :)

April said...

Sounds like your "Snail Mail" project is going to be a huge success! ;)

We did the yard thing yesterday too, and we also do red mulch. Doesn't it just perk it up instantly?

shortmama said...

Got my partner! Looking forward to it!

Nancy C said...

I love that you got to sleep on Sunday...maybe in five years when the boys are a little older!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!

Sounds like a perfect, relaxing weekend! Looks like you have a lovely big yard.

I desperately need to do yard work. I'm stalling because our front planting area is infested with voles. Yuck! They give me the heebie jeebies when I'm trying to plant and they scurry out. So far, my hubby's humane methods of relocating them just aren't working.

I love those purple hearts! Sounds like a good weekend. I can't wait to have a nice relaxing weekend myself.

Just Breathe said...

All hooked up with my snail mail!
Sounds like it was a pretty nice weekend. Enjoy your week.

Well, I am glad that someone had a nice relaxing weekend. Mine was crazy...but nice. Can't wait to sleep on a Sunday:)

I got my partner and emailed them my address, so I'm all set. Thanks so much for doing this. Hopefully, if I can remember (I have the memory of a gnat much of the day) I will do a little post on this project you have set up.

What a nice weekend and the flowers look great.

I HATE forgetting my camera! I usually take it with me everywhere I go (along with all 3 kids). But sometimes I forget it. :)

I'm here from Follow Me Back Tuesday, and I'm now a follower. You look to be a good writer, and that's what I'm in search of: well-written blogs.
