It's Official: Fun-day Friday Link Party #1

Yippee!  Fun-day Friday is HERE! :-)

What is Fun-day Friday, you ask?
It's a place for all of us to share the JOY, share the LOVE, share the FUN! :-)
Here are a few possibilities.........

  • FUN craft projects
  • FUN activities for the kids
  • FUN adventures you've been on
  • FUN spaces you've created
  • FUN party ideas
  • FUN fashion finds
Pretty much, if you call it FUN, it qualifies!

Me?  I kinda keep it random on Fridays ... with a hodgepodge mash-up of all things FUN from my week.  
Here's what that looks like:

1. Guess who came to my house for lunch this week?
You give up?

 (Goofy was special enough to get the booster seat!)

Lucy has a whole lotta fun with these guys every day!

2.  Miss Lucy got her very first pedicure this week!  I intended on painting her little piggies before she was 2 1/2, but here ridiculously ticklish feet have made it darn-near impossible until now (and even still, it was a challenge!).  She's thinkin' she's pretty cool now though ..... :)~

3.  We celebrated "Take Your Child To Work Day" last week ... and boy, oh boy, was it FUN!  I was excited to take Lucy to school with me for an hour that day (part of the joy of living 3 minutes from my school ... I was able to take Lucy home while my kids were having their library time!:-)

I'm not sure who had more fun ... Lucy or my kinder kids!?
Here she is in Mama's chair -- where she rocked and rocked and sang her heart out for the kids (over and over) much to their amusement!

 They also loved when she decided she needed to pat every one of them on the head!

She looks so grown up ..... before I know it, she'll be a STUDENT in my classroom, not just a visitor every now and then.

4.   Lucy and I went shopping -- just the two of us -- last weekend.
If you know me, you know that I LOVE to shop.  And I do it well.  And often. (I know, I know ... my poor husband.)
But it is definitely true that Lucy has spent many a day in the mall -- and she's always been a pretty good sport about it, too.
The cool thing about this most recent shopping trip was -- I think she's actually starting to enjoy it!
I've got another future Nordie's girl on my hands!
(Her future husband can thank me later! Ha!)
The highlight of the day was Lucy trying on all of her shoe possibilities.
"I like this one, Mama!  No ... I like this one, Mama!  I like this one, too, Mama!"  
We finally settled on her first light-up tennies..... these, from Sketchers ($37.95).
I must say ... the whole light-up thing IS pretty FUN! ;-)  She LOVES these shoes!

5.  Not that I needed another show to add to my reality TV lineup ... but has anyone else been watching "The Voice"...?  I must say, I am diggin' it.  My favorite part is not having to listen to the "people-who-can't-sing-but-think-they-can" like we're subject to on the first several weeks of American Idol.  The people on The Voice can ALL sing!!! :-)
And in other reality TV news:  GO, ROB!  
The end.  

6.  I'm down to ONE MONTH from Bloggy Boot Camp in Seattle!  I know we are gonna have a blast  (and hopefully we'll learn a lot, too!)... I can't wait!  
Social Marketing for Women
7.  My newly-built crafting table is being featured on one of my favorite blogs today (Friday) ... A Glimpse Inside!  Go check it out and leave Allison some comment love while you're at it! :-)

So there you have it.
My version of Fun-day Friday!
And now it's YOUR TURN!


But first ......  a little "housekeeping" (aka: THE RULES):

1.  Link up your posts containing anything and everything FUN.

2. PLEASE be sure to link ONLY to your specific "Fun-day Friday" post - NOT to your general blog address.

3.  Please attach my Fun-day Friday button somewhere on your blog.
(Until this link party becomes well-established, it would be AWESOME if you would include it directly in your post!)
You can find the button code up above the rules OR over in my sidebar!

4. Please comment on AT LEAST TWO other linked up posts.... the whole point of a link party is to meet other bloggers and share the love!

5. I'd love it if you'd follow my blog!

6. And finally ... HAVE FUN!  (That IS the name of this game, after all!)
*The link-up will be open until Saturday at midnight!


  1. Thanks for hosting! I love Friday hops. ;)


  2. Thanks for hosting!! I love me a linky party...I know that was bad grammar teacher and I promise I won't do it again.

    By the way, I am a former preschool teacher and I bet your school kids LOVE when Lucy comes in!! They always loves when I brought my girls in, it was like they couldn't even comprehend that I had children other than them! :)

    Happy Friday!

  3. Oh those Disney creatures at the table made me laugh!! Ally does stuff like that...SO funny! WOW! We need to go shopping girl! I LOVE shopping and I used to take Ally all of the time...she is a pretty good shopper and just LOVES to try on shoes esp. The clerks always laugh when she struts around in shoes MY size. lol That is so cool that you got to bring Lucy to school. Bet the kids LOVED that!!
