Thursday Favorite Things

Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things!

It is official, we sold our house, all papers were sign on Wednesday, and I am in our new one. I am having a hard time getting everything to fit. The kitchen cabinets are not as deep as my old ones and they are not as wide. I keep moving items around to see what works the best. I am sure I will find a way to get it all in there. It is something I just didn't think about - different cabinet sizes. 

Hope you are having a great week as we move into the first weekend in June. Can you believe it? This year is going way to fast!

Many of my features come from you my commenters. Don't forget to leave your Linkup Number or Post Title so I can find you and you could become one of my featured commenters next week.

You're The Star - Home Feature Week

Welcome to You're The Star - Home Feature Week!

Happy Memorial Day weekend to those in the U.S. We finally moved all of our possessions this weekend. It has been crazy trying to get everything put somewhere in the house, garage or hubby's barn. We took some time off today to relax a bit. Hope you are having an enjoyable weekend.

WELCOME to the May 2019 "You're the Star" Blog Hop!

Before we continue onto the Linky party I wanted to share a picture:

 
In the mist of moving, I needed to find a place for the small trunk. In our bedroom, is this space or sort of alcove above with some lights. I thought why not up there. That was the beginning. What else could be put up there. So for the next hour, I needed a break, my daughter and I decided to see what I could find to add to the truck. All of these things have special meaning to me. It is rather high up there, so it was hard to get a good picture.

Over The Moon Linky Party

Welcome to Over The Moon Linky Party

Happy Memorial Day Weekend. I hope you are enjoying your long weekend. It is a special time to honor our fallen men and women who served our country. 

My house update: we finally moved all of our possessions here on Friday. We were too tired to unload then so we did that yesterday. All of the furniture is in but there are boxes everywhere. We spent the night last night. It is going to take awhile to unpack but at least we are finally moved.

Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things!

Happy Thursday to everyone. I am so sorry that I did not get to respond to your comments last week. Since I went to Pittsburgh for the weekend, it was so late by the time I got back late on Sunday night. But I am here this week so I will be answering your comments. 

I packed all day today and we put a few things into the trailer. Tomorrow we will pack everything up and then leave on Friday morning. It is down to the wire now.

Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

Memorial Weekend is fast approaching. Do you have plans? We usually go camping on Memorial weekend but this year, we will be making our final move. We are not sure when we will be heading out, once everything is pack will be the deciding factor. Probably Friday morning. As for Monday, we will probably be traveling back here, since our walk through and signing is on Tuesday. I also have a dentist appointment Tuesday morning.  Hope you have a wonderful holiday.

Welcome to week#3 of the May 2019 "You're the Star" Blog Hop!
Before we continue onto the Linky party I wanted to share a picture from our hocckey weekend. My Mom is 94 and has never seen a hockey game, so I took her to see her great gandson play. He is a goalie for his team.  I also took my sister. It was a nice reunion for everyone.
Here we are having some lunch after the game. My grandson and son are rather chopped off the picture.

Over The Moon Linky Party

Welcome to Over The Moon Linky Party

It is a beautiful Sunday here in Pittsburgh. I had hoped to enjoy some cooler weather while I was here but today it is 85. Although that is cooler than Florida, it is still warm. Oh well, it is still enjoyable. The best part was that I did not have to pack or unpack boxes. That's a good thing! Hope you are enjoying your Sunday.

Happiness Is Homemade

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade!

I am enjoying my visit to Pittsburgh to watch my grandson play in a hockey tournament. Although I have seen him play before, it was a special treat for my mother. She turned 94 at the end of April and I wanted her to see her great grandson play. She has never seen a hockey game and she was so excited to see him play. When the game ended, she said, "it's over already, I was just getting into it".

I also too my younger sister to the game so it was a nice family get together. We all went out for lunch later and had a wonderful visit.
Check in with Carol below for this weeks comments about the party.

Welcome to Thursday. The weeks seem to be flying by. 12 more days until we have to be out of our house. It's coming down to the wire and we are getting there, but I seem to be fading. I am heading to Pittsburgh this weekend to see my grandson in a hockey tournament. I am so excited to watch him play and also to see my Mom and sister. It will also be so nice NOT to be packing our unpacking.

Healthier Brownies with Avocado

Healthier Brownies with Avocado

Since it is National Chocolate Chip Day, I thought I would make some brownies with dark chocolate chips. I am trying to eat healthier so I wanted ones that were made with avocados. I love avocados but have never put them in my brownies. Why not try them?

You're The Star - Creative Feature Week

Welcome to You're The Star - Creative Feature Week

Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day. I was driving home from our other house but my hubby and my daughter took me to dinner on Saturday night. It was nice to relax a little after another crazy weekend of moving.

Welcome to the second week of the May 2019 blog hop called "You're the Star"!

I didn't have time to do a post but wanted to show you what the trailer looked like when we arrived at the house. The trailer is 26 feet long and was packed. I couldn't add height on this load since I could not pile up very high on many of the items.  Nothing moved, so that was good. Like my crochet sets?

Welcome to Over The Moon Linky Party

Happy Mother's Day! Hope you are having a great day and that you were spoiled or you spoiled someone. I was on the road for part of the day, but hubby did take me to dinner last night with him and my daughter. 

 After working at the house all day, it was nice to go out and relax.

Happiness Is Homemade

Happy Mother's Day! and Welcome to 

Happiness is Homemade Link Party 270

I am so delighted that you are taking a moment out of your Mother's Day to spend a few moments at our party. I hope you have an awesome day and do something to spoil yourself, or that special someone. 

Carol has picked this weeks features so check them out and see her comments below.


It's Mother's Day and if you are a mom, a mom~to~be, have a mom or a grandmother, favorite aunt, or know someone who acts as a mom, we at Happiness is Homemade Link party 270 hope that you are having a marvelous day. This week I shared the mother's day cards I made for my grandkids to give to their moms. You might like to PIN it for next year. Spring has settled in and we love the blooming flowers everywhere (not the pollen and allergies!). I'm so excited to be hostess for the rest of the month of May. I always think of May flowers and showers, the May pole, and the lusty month of May (from Camelot).
"It's May, it's May, that gorgeous holiday.
That lovely month when everyone goes blissfully astray Tra la, it's here, that shocking time of year When tons of wicked little thoughts merrily appear."
You all made it so hard to pick a few featured posts. The content last week was over the top. But choose, I did, so please enjoy, PIN, comment and share. And definitely, link up for next week. Bluesky at Home signature

Another week of packing, loading and then driving and unloading. We came in tonight at 9:40 after packing and I realized I needed to get my party ready.

Over The Moon Linky Party

Welcome to Over The Moon Linky Party

Happy Sunday! Hope you are having a great day. The weather was really hot here today. We had some rain over the weekend and then the sun came out today. 

Update on our moving front - we took another load up over the weekend and I was able to get one of the spare bedrooms put together. I just needed to have one room sort of organized. Everything else is so unorganized. Maybe one of these days I will share some pictures.

Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things!

Can you believe that it is May?  I am in my May moving countdown. This weekend we are moving two bedrooms and the living room to the other house. I have been packing and sorting. Each week this month we will be taking a load. Moving is a great way to loose weight - whether you want to or not. Hope your May is off to a great start.
