Enough with the peace and quiet; It's time to Party.

I know it has been quiet around this blog recently.  With holidays, birthdays, moving, and traveling I have had a hard time sitting long enough to tell you about what is happening.  I recently got by blog to read count down from 300.  Every day I would put a small dent in the numbers, only to find more there the next day.  But I've catch up on my reading, and I'm ready to party with my peeps.  Will you be my peep?     
    
         

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

                   

Press Play you know you want to...but if you don't that is ok as long as you stay for a minute while I tell you something. As I was reading over here at Cranberry Fries.  She talks about how much she loves comments.  

Do you have a love for comments as well?  I DO!

To demonstrate how much I like comments, I want to tell you a recent event in my life.  Actually I will have to tell you a few things.  When I went to Texas for my best friends wedding, my camera was in a fatal crash with the ground.  My husband performed and autopsy to determine cause of death.  After disecting my friend, he determined the cause of death was blunt force trauma.  He offered to replace my camera with a slimmer more portable model.  I turned my nose up at his offer and pouted about my loss.

I am certain he couldn't stand to see me suffer any longer (it was that or he needed me to stop wasting time searching online for a camera that could make me forget my loss).  He took over the search, and found a camera that came with guarantee to return a smile to my face.

Due to the fact that Hubby and I are both technology lovers, we shop online frequently.  Therefore, the UPS guys are on a first name basis with me.  We kick up our feet and have a golly old time a few times a week.

So anyhow, I was waiting very impatiently for delivery of my camera, but I also had some flameless candles, and other assorted Christmas gifts coming our way.  I had checked online and the camera was one day out, and my candles were out for delivery.  When I heard the bell, I knew my candles had made it safely.

I had to open the package immediately.  (Who waits to open packages?  That is just crazy.)  Underneath the layers of cardboard, and bubble wrap was my beautiful camera.  I am only slightly embarrassed to admit that I may have stood up and danced around my livingroom saying. "I got my camera, I got my camera."  I also apologize to all the people with numbers stored in my phone.  I know you may have been busy, but I had to let the whole world know that I got my camera.  I called a million people or at least I felt like telling everyone.  I may or may not have picked up the camera and kissed it.

A few minutes later my bell rang, I had more boxes.  It was a red letter day.

So you see just how excited I was about my camera. Well that is how I feel about comments.  I love each of them.  I can't wait to open them, I could kiss them.

So you may have noticed that I've changed my commenting section. THANKS MOMBABE  for your help. I am hoping that it will make it easier for all of those stopping by to leave a quick hello.

Throw on a party hat and let's make some noise.

YEah for your new camera!! I too have noticed it has gotten awfully quiet in bloggy land...I think with Christmas coming up and all it's taking some time...I'm still here though.And I am just kicking myself for letting your blog fall through the cracks. I have not come by in a while. I'm changing that. You like comments. I like comments. We might be the ONLY ones commenting on each other's blogs but so what...(Psst. I really don't think we are, I'm just trying to be funny.)

Also I love your blog header! It is very original and clever. I'm thinking I need to change the title of my blog but not sure really what I could change it too. I'm still thinking...
I hope you are having fun this Saturday...:) I like your music too!

I love getting packages in the mail. Seriously, is there anything better? Bills? Eh. Letters? Eh. Packages? OH, YEAH BABY!!!
Congrats on your camera!

Here's a comment, just for you!

Your poor old camera that you had to bid adieu to. Sniff.

Carolyn V. said...

Yay for the new camera! And moving and birthdays and.... =)

Hoooray for a new camera!!! The death of a camera is a sad sad day.

OOoooo I love the new commenting section. My friend who has a similar one to your old one recently took a poll and over half the folks said they were just too lazy to enter in their info to comment. I know it's strange it's only 15 sec but I guess it does make a difference to some.

Lets party! Hey how's all the new house painting going? I'm dieing to see the black wall....

I love comments too. It's something fun to break up a day of writing. It's also nice to know that someone is actually reading the stuff we post.

I love cameras too. I'm glad you have a new camera to tinker with. Just in time for Christmas. Have fun.
