Let's Party at A Bouquet of Talent Link Party & Top Views #49

Welcome to another party!  I can't believe I have been hosting A Bouquet of Talent for almost a year now.  It's amazing how fast time flies.  I have enjoyed every minute of it, too!  Thank you so much for joining in each week.  You are what makes it so much fun!

I am trying to hurry up and get this post finished, because my hubby is so patiently waiting on me.  It never fails, something always breaks down my first week of school.  It seems to be Murphy's Law for me that week.  Always!! 

This week my faithful Expedition and my washing machine decided to blow up on the same day!  :(   I so do not want to make a car payment every month even though my Expedition is a gas guzzler!  I don't drive it far to school each day so it's not that bad.  We got the sad news it needs a new engine, and we are not willing to pay that much for repairs.  So I am going to sadly say good-bye to the Expedition.  It has hauled many a kids to baseball and volleyball games for years now.  Time to downsize.

So we are off to car shop and buy a new washing machine!  Neither one of those things are at the top of my favorite to-do list.  On a happier note, the weather has been amazingly cool here for the past few days!  I just wish it would stick around!  


One of my favorite posts of the week is Pick of the Bunch Fabulous Features.   If you missed those features you can see it here.  I also decided to stick with the top 5 most viewed posts, because I love to show off your talent.

Purple Hues & Me has done it again with her beautiful burlap bow pillow!  I am loving that purple bow.
