Tara at Between You & Me has come up with the coolest idea.  She is having a weekend wrap up party and I am so excited to join in. 

We were on Spring Break this past week.  We did not go any where because we had to many things on our TO DO LIST.
We did promise the girls that they could plan everything we would do on one of the days.  So this is what they came up with, keep in mind that it was raining on the day.

I made homemade popcorn, which is their favorite snack.  Do you ever make your popcorn homemade?  Growing up my dad and I would try to out do each other, to see who could make the best,  popcorn was a Sunday night ritual.  Many Sundays nights you can find the four of us and my parents eating popcorn together, some things are worth passing down.

We played games and watched movies most of the day.  To get out some energy we had hula-hoop contest in the middle of the family room floor.  So far Big Sister and I are neck and neck but Little Sister is quickly catching up with us. 

So that was our day.

This is the inside of my popcorn bowl.  By the way this is the same popcorn bowl we ate out of when I was growing up, maybe one day one of the girls will make their family homemade popcorn and serve it in this bowl.

Girl you have been busy. Your special day looked like a good one. Congrats on your Stunning mantle. HGTV had it right. You totally deserved that one. I also love your Shirt redo. I liked to first one but I loved the final result. You know how I love refashioned clothing.
