Mr. Golden Sun, please shine down on me!!

Hi girls! Sorry to be gone from the blogging scene. The sun has kind of disappeared here and my brain has stopped working. I've been tutoring, napping, eating, sleeping, reading, eating, sleeping, reading, eating, sleeping, reading...you get the picture. Spring really needs to come quickly!
We've also been doing college visits for several weekends in a row. Some kids are interested in one college. My son applied to 8! The decision should be made soon.

Several people have asked about my dining room project. Well it is not moving along very well. I painted and then couldn't move past that point. Watch for pictures tomorrow or Tuesday so you can advise me.

Now you have to see this! Dawn at Cottage State of Mind made this adorable button to remind us to exercise and be healthy before blogging. I love it!


  1. Found your blog through Dawn's Cottage State of Mind Blog. Glad to be here, now I'm off to look around!

  2. Hi Stacey! I have missed you. Sounds like you've been a busy gal. Can't wait to see your dining room. Good luck with the college hopping.
    Now that is a darling little button!
    Be a sweetie and hang on, Spring is coming,
    Shelia ;)

  3. I love that you have a "Day till Spring" Countdown! This has been the longest, coldest, and snowy-est winter! Glad you are back. We have missed your company!

  4. Hi Stacey,

    I have missed your posts but I definitely understand the reading, napping, sleeping thing. I have been doing a lot of that too. Hope your Son decides on a college soon. Sounds like you are going to get more snow. Not sure if we are here or not. As always, we will just wait and see.......

  5. Mr. Sun did put in an appearance on Thursday and Friday...but then Saturday and today were just wet, cold, and dreary. Oh Spring, come soon...we need the warmth.

    Have a great week.

  6. Oh, I've missed you, too! I am with you on the college choices....let's just DECIDE now, right???? ;D
    And love the button for jogging before blogging...so cute!


  7. Hi Stacey,

    Yes I have missed you and your daily posts! I figured you were busy with the dining room project, college visits and tutoring and that's a full schedule! I am so ready for spring! Can't wait to start hitting the nurseries...like TLC and Under the Sun. No sunlight just drains my energy cells! LOL..Glad you finally came out of hibernation!

  8. You were missed! I am soooo anxious for Spring too. Today the sun was shining making me think Spring is right around the corner. I like the jog before you blog button.

  9. That was quick! Thanks for sharing the button. A friend of my husband had to have bypass surgery yesterday and they had to work on all 6 valves and his aorta! I didn't even know there were that many. He is about 50 and looks to be in good health so it was a shock to everyone. I decided I had to make a change. I did 5 minutes on the treadmill before I started visiting tonight. Yes, just 5 but it's a start.

    Hope you're enjoying working at the school. Hugs,

  10. I've missed you, girl! I know exactly how you feel about missing the sun. It has put me in a lazy state of mind. Take care, hope you come by soon to visit my blog.

    Smiles & Hugs,

  11. I have definitly missed you Stacey! We all get used to visits from our long time blog friends and it seems different when they are not around. I'm glad you're back. I hope all goes well with your son and his big decision.

    Spring is on the way! It will be here soon and I am so ready like you are.

    Have a great week. ~Melissa :)

    PS LOVE the adorable button and it's message.

  12. I'm making you my "blog of the week" right now okay? I hope you don't mind. It's a feature at the top of my blog. *Smiles*

  13. I am looking forward to spring and sunny days too! Hang in there, it will be here soon...

  14. Well, I came back to say doesn't look like YOU will get snow but WE are right on the line to possibly get it later tonight.

  15. I know just want you mean. I live in "Sunny" Ca. and haven't seen the sun in a while. Hubby and I weeded our front yard between rain showers yestrday. Hope you and your son can narrow down your search soon. He must be a good student to have so many choices.
    You must be so proud.
    Like the button, but for me it would have to be walk(although doesn't rythme). Hoping for sunny days soon.

  16. Oh Girl,
    I hear you! We are supposed to get another snowy blast on Tuesday. Of course that means I'll have to bake some cookies to prepare for it. At this rate, they will have to get me out of my house with a crane!!!

  17. You have been missed out here in blogland, Stacey. It sounds like you have been busy. It does seem like spring is taking it's time this year. I am sooo ready for it.

    I give your son credit for looking into his options on the college front.

  18. OMG, I need to remember that ' Job before you blog ' --- computers can make the waistline larger...

  19. I sure know what you mean. The sleet/snow thing is suppose to return tomorrow. We did have a couple of nice days before it turned cold again. Hang in there...Spring will soon be here :)

  20. That button is so cute and so true. If I keep sitting here at this computer I am going to spread out more than I already have. I have been making myself go upstairs and use the treadmill and do some weights. I want to drop some pounds this year and then I go and start a blog!!

  21. good idea. does the button come with a boot, if you get my drift, because it need more than a button! lol.

  22. Whew, you've been busy! :) Family comes first though! Love the "jog before you blog" button, that's too cute!

  23. No sunshine around here either....I am sooo ready for spring!!!!! Can't wait to see what you are doing in your dining room. I have been working on mine too and have reached a point where I am ready to run away screaming!!!! LOL

  24. Morning Stacey! I'm gonna jog back to the kitchen now and get another donut and run over to the couch and watch my 6:30 Scrapbooking on HGTV!!!Then I'll jog back to the computer! Does any of that "jogging" count??lol I've missed your posts too and look forward to the peek at your dining room! Have a fun day! Sincerely, Jeannette
